Not sure if you are aware that Find A Grave has placed a new "edits" tab on the top of the contributor's page for suggested changes.

Please check for the changes I have sent to you on Edith.

Thanks, Ron Steenhoek

Maybe you can point that out to the other record owner. You have a valid point.

Hi Terry,

Thanks for the connect. I sent you another to connect David to Julia.
I don't know why Aunt Lou is not buried with Uncle Bill. I'll ask my sister, she keeps up on alot of the Knowlton information.

We need to get together next time you are in the area. Did I send you a copy of the letter Sarah Sally wrote after arriving in Illinois. Let me know.

Have a good Thanksgiving. We are going to have it here at my house. Has to be a buffet style as usual.

Thank you for your lifetime of service! I stopped by a Memorial you provided for Frank Roblin. I have an old photo from the era he was a photographer at Spirit Lake, IA. I read the tip on shaving cream... wonderful idea! I am always worried about damaging an already deteriorated stone. This will help me in my own photo quests. Thank you for contributing to Find A Grave! Best Wishes, Lettie

PS. Can you tell me how many families were at Spirit Lake between 1892 & 1897?

I plan on going back to Carlisle Cemetery this week & take additional photos.
I will let know if I take pictures that will give additional information.
I drive a black marauder if you are in the area & see me there stop in & say Hi.

I saw the note on my grandparents memorial and I am very curious if we are related. My father was Walter Davis Hardy Jr. I have been doing research on all sides of my family for some time now and have very little from my father's.
