Hardy Children
Sarah B Hardy is buried with a string of children to her right. Same style stone and inscriptions. Many of them dying young. The dates don't make a lot of sense to me, they do not appear to be grouped or spaced evenly. I sent corrections, take them as you see fit. I did not note a stone for J.H. Hardy.

Groveland - Riverview Cemetery
Thought I was doing a photo request, I guess not. I added a bunch of Rowell photos in the cemetery on your memorials.

I see there are still two memorials for Nadine L Anderson.

Would you please ask the other contributor to merge theirs with yours or just delete your since it has the least information and no family connection.

Memorial# 37468365
I see there are two memorials for Nadine L Anderson. You had created the first one but I wondered if you would mind deleting it because the other contributor has more info, an extensive obit, and family connections on their memorial.
See Memorial# 51632635.

Thanks so much.

Fernando D Hardy
I'm pretty sure this Fernando Hardy (Find A Grave Memorial# 13994692) is my great-grandfather's Neal Hardy's uncle. I know he has a Fernando D. Hardy for an uncle anyway. Even though the date of birth is unknown the years old is listed and he would be the right age.

Thank you TERRY. I have been doing genealogy since I was in my early teens. Having a grandfather who had already done a lot helped a great deal. Plus being able to talk to my great grandmother for years about her life got me interested in my other ancestors. My Carpenter ancestors came to America from England in the 1700's. I appreciate the help from you. And the compliments.

Thank-you for the quick correction and for the very nice message. :)

God Bless you sir, for all of the good work you have done for many, many years and continue to do.

Have a wonderful Christmas & Happy New Year!

You are appreciated!
