I just changed the death date for Bernhard Wessels to May 31st. I'm actually not sure why it was written as June 1st, since his death certificate also says May 31st.

Different Items
I added my own entries into the cemetery for these 4 numbers, I have my own photos for them. I don't know if delete them is wise right now, there is usually two sides to a family, and for myself I don't want to mix one side into the other.
Clinton E Miller: # 116640333
Alma E Miller # 116640377
Lyle G Miller # 130655800
Pearl L Miller # 130655815

May I use your photo for a new entry for
Minerva E Miller Kelley # 119495527 with credit to you as photographer? She is not linked to her husband, and my photo is way too old.

Patrick Laughren, FAG Mem. No. 101222876.
Dear Barb, I would like to request if I could please assume management of my great-great-grandfather Patrick's Find A Grave interment record from you. For the past thirty years I have been researching this branch of my family (the Laughrens) and would really appreciate if you would permit me to maintain it. If you should care to discuss this with me please feel free to contact me at, and thank you. Richard A. L(aughren) Ziers

Correction submitted to FAG for Patrick Loughren

I have since corrected the misspelling of Patrick's surname. It is being reviewed by Find A Grave. I also submitted additional information of him that I had in my family's archives.

FAG Memorial No. 101222876, Patrick Loughren.

Thanks for including my great-great-grandfather Patrick onto Find A Grave's website. When I went looking for him in the database of Find A Grave I was initially unable to find him. Then I discovered the reason why. It was because his surname was misspelled. His surname is misspelled as "Loughren" when it should be "Laughren." Please relate to his gravestone inscription for confirmation of this. Again, thanks for your contribution.
