Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a retired senior, I have become interested in family geneology and have been fairly sucessful in locating family history. I take grave photos when requested and have had several of my photo requests fulfilled.

Contact me if errors are found.

Any family member who views a close relatives file (parent, grandparent, great grandparent, or sibling) on findagrave and wishes to take control should contact me through the Edit tab on the findagrave memorial and I would be happy to transfer control to you.

Other transfers will be considered.

Do not request a transfer without indicating relationship to person.

wrong cemetery

Please correct this listing. The obituary you added says burial in St. Marys Cemetery in Niles. The one the memorial was added to is in Bainbridge, MI. It is a very old small cemetery where no recent burials have been done.
Thank you for correcting this error.

Re: Edward Prahl
I have copied the obituary but I don't understand why you would want me to keep mine since yours clearly was created before mine. Is it because of the links to family I have on mine? If you would like, I can transfer mine to you if they are your family.

Paul E. Parfitt
Thank you for your hard word adding memorials to Find A Grave. I am requesting the transfer of Paul E. Parfitt to me. He was my uncle. I have left many edits for you without any response, which I find very rude. In your bio you mention that you are glad to honor requests of close relatives. Uncle Paul loved his nephews and nieces and I would be grateful for his transfer. My contributor number is 48407044.

Do you mind if I add a photograph of her stone at Elm Grove Cemetery?

RE: Paul L. Clendening
Thank you for responding. I actually used the edit form to send the request on Oct 31st & entered their memorial #'s in the fields.

I would be happy to re-send them but I'm away on vacation & trying to use my phone. Lol. After tonight, I won't even have the phone available because we'll be at sea.

If you can't pull them from the original request, I can re-send it when I get back next week. Or, if you would be willing to transfer the memorial to me, I would be happy to maintain it as we have much more to add.

RE: Thank you
So sorry, I forgot how much work you are doing. It is for Ernest Burton Brady (hence the Grandpa Burt). Sorry and Thanks again

Obit errors
Ernest Burton "Burt" Brady was married 3 times. He outlived all of them. Sarah Rebecca Kannell with which he had 3 children my grandmother Esther, John and Ira Fred Brady. He then married a Florence Teas with which he had no children. He then married Nellie Demaray. It is unknown if her children are the biological children of grandpa Burt or not but they took the Brady name. The Mattie Miller spoken of is my Aunt Matt (nee Brady). It's crazy how mixed up things can become. I appreciate you posting it. Thank you again

Ruth Benson rupley
Hi, I was wondering if it would be ok if i copied the picture you have of Ruth Benson Rupley onto my tree on ancestry. Ruth is my husbands grandmother's cousin, whom she has never seen but looks identical to her *crazy*

thanks so much

Thank you so much for finding and adding the headstone of my ggrandfather Burt. I have been watching and waiting for this for quite some time. I have seen this obit for you and there are many errors in it.
