John Murray Request from 2014
I went back to a long lost email I have not used and noticed that you put a picture of John Murray's head stone on for us back in 2014. Sorry for such a delay reply but I wanted to thank you VERY much for what u did. Have a Happy New Year.

I don't know where the middle initial came from, but I see 2 census records and the married record that show her middle initial as 'L'.

Let me know if you can correct it.

Please correct the spelling of her married name. Look at the stone.

James Lee Fuller
Please removed the photo of the headstone from this memorial. This memorial is inaccurate as James was not buried in Nebraska - he was buried in Whiteside, Illinois. the photo you posted is from the cemetery in Whiteside.

Thank you

FAG Photo's Fish/Rexford
Good Morning,

I am an amateur Vermont historian, and am presently working on a project to identify the last resting place of many of our Civil War veterans. This "trip" has taken me to Iowa, where is listed several hundred vets, with Vermont ties,that made this their last home. In browsing Find A Grave I have found two in Clinton County which you have posted a marker photo for ( Miner E.Fish & Denison Rexford), I am asking if you would give me permission to add these to the 'Vermont Civil War Data base?'
If you would like to "check this out" you can go to " I have contributed many items, photo's, letters, obit's etc, and through it have learned more about the CW. than I ever did in High School history class.
You would receive credit for this.
Thank you for your consideration.

Your Photo Error on #6688005
You have an incorrect marker photo on Arnold P. Walliker's (#6688005) memorial. I was just in Springdale cemetery today and took the correct one. Please remove yours to avoid confusion. Thanks!
