Find A Grave is for everyone. I can't understand people who hold memorials "hostage"! I feel that it is more important to get the correct info, than it is to have a large number of memorials!|
I am willing to transfer any of my non-family member memorials. Let me know if you have info or corrections on any of the memorials that I manage.
You are welcome to share any of my photos.

Hi Kris, thanks for the reply. I had sent the edit request via the "edit" button and it's showing on my end as still "unedited"... I took a look at the memorial. It appears that you removed the valid date of death. Could you please put that part back? The only thing that was incorrect previously on the memorial was the location of death. There were two men named Thomas Darneille (cousins). You had put the correct date on this one, but had used the death location of the other. This one died on May 24, 1870 (which is printed on the headstone) in Greenbush, Warren, Illinois. He was the son of Henzie Darneille and Elizabeth Congleton, and husband of Lucinda Willard. Thanks for your help! ~Evey :-)

I found Olive, created a memorial for her and linked her to her ex-husband. Must have been divorced from Homer.
Thanks for the challenge.
|Vicky Wiemer Tracy||Phebe Lafayette Foster|
Phebe Lafayette Foster was my great great grand uncle (brother of my gggrandfather). I can't find much information about Phebe and was interested to know how you found his nickname "Icle." Do you know anything about his death?
|Kate Welch Denney||RE: Daniel Cone|
Kris, My Aunt Kate passed away and I'm handling her Find A Grave account, I'm just now getting to her emails and requests. This is what she had for notes for Daniel:
Frin Ken Smith
Daniel was born in 1626 in Edinbourgh, Midlothian, Scotland. There is a Daniel Mackhoe on the passenger list of the ship ‘John & Sarah' that arrived in Massachusetts in 1652. Family lore says he was a Scottish Army Officer captured by the British in the Battle of Dunbar. He was banished to America and changed his name on arrival. Daniel was in Connecticut by March 2, 1658. He moved to Haddam in 1662 and was one of the original proprietors. That is to say, about May 1662, he was one of 28 persons to receive from the Connecticut Colony, part of a grant of land situated on both sides of the Connecticut River, about thirty miles from its mouth. The town was called Haddam after Haddam, England. His first wife was Mehitabel Spencer. Cone must have known the Spencer family before they all moved to Haddam, because they were married around 1661, possibly in Hartford. She was the daughter of Gerrard Spencer and Hannah Hills. Daniel was a Commissioner of Haddam in 1669, and held other minor offices in the town. From 1680 to 1695, the family lived across the river in East Haddam, but Daniel returned that year to Haddam. Mehitable died about 1691, presumably in East Haddam, and Daniel married again, Rebecca, the widow of Richard Walkley. Daniel Cone of Haddam, Connecticut, died at 80 years of age on October 24, 1706 in Haddam, Middlesex, Connecticut. He may have been buried in the Old Cove Burying Ground in Haddam.
