Greens / Salem Lutheran Plumer IA
Hello David, I am very distantly related to some of the Greens. My grandmother was Meta Busse Watson, who was first cousin to several of the Greens. She was also related to the Brandts as a 2nd cousin I believe and they intermarried. We have an extensive Busse tree and I can look up specific relationships if you are interested. I frequently look at the Salem Lutheran info and have permission to use the research done by Joyce George on obits carried onto that site, so trying to fill in some bits of history. That site has a number of interesting confirmation, marriage, obits, etc. for branches of the Green family. We visit Plumer every few yrs and I hope to get by there again next year. Could we possibly be related distantly?

RE: Help
David: I found the information below on the "Help with Find A Grave" section.
My ID number is 47616369.

I am so there anything I can do to help you...just let me know. I will be praying
for both of you!

How do I transfer a memorial that I manage to another contributor or to Find A Grave to manage and update?
You must be logged in, and you must manage the memorial you are going to transfer. You will also need the other contributor's Contributor ID #. It is next to their name on their contributor page if they did not provide it. If you are transferring the memorial to Find A Grave to manage, the contributor ID # is 8. (If you would like to transfer all of the memorials you have added to a particular cemetery to Find A Grave to manage, please send us an email with your contributor ID # and a link to the cemetery involved, and we can transfer your memorials to Find A Grave for you all at once.)
After you log in, go to the memorial page you are going to transfer. There will be a link on the right side of the memorial page, under the person's name, that says Transfer Management. Click on the link. Add the other contributor's ID # in the box on the Transfer Management of Memorial page that comes up, and click on the transfer this memorial button. NOTE: Once you have transferred the memorial, you will no longer be able to edit or update it. [Top]

John & Edith Cornwell
These are my maternal Ggrandparents. However, I have no records for a son named Roy Cornwell. My Grandma Mary Ethel Cornwell-Nichols married Roy R. Nichols. Can you help me out with this?

Thank you!

Ahoy David and Mrs. David!
....Thought of you tonight as I sat on my front porch and listened for the sounds o' the Pacific. The ocean is completely silent tonight though, which is odd. It's whale season and the pods are going by headed north to Alaska. What's news in Ohio? ~ BL

Thank you so much for the photo. I wonder if there is any way to tell what the writing is on the bottom line. It is not very plain. Thanks again.

William Kinzer and Mary (Kinzer) Stultz
David! Thank you so very much for linking them so quickly! I think all of the James E. Kinzer and Elizabeth (Stumbaugh/Stambough) Kinzer children are now accounted for except for the two who died as infants, Clarence Kinzer (b. 10-10-1894 and d. 10-12-1894) and Elmer Kinzer (b. and d. 6-10-1886, "born dead" according to Hugh Kinzer's papers). I could not locate any memorials for either one. Do you have any ideas as to where they may be buried? Bainbridge Cemetery probably? I cannot imagine the sadness James and Elizabeth must have suffered with losing their two tiny sons.
It seems every time I search, you have been the one to add the Kinzer (and many other!) grave marker photographs I find everywhere. I credit you and your wife with such fine, fine work on documenting and photographing hundreds (thousands?) of individuals. Such fine work and many jobs well done. So many lives will be enriched by your all of your work. THANK YOUUU!! Kind regards, Bridey Light

RE: Kinzers
I don't have any first-hand knowledge of any Kinzer-Wright connections, David, and my sense is that your Kinzer family was in the Highland Co area much longer than my particular branch of the Wright family was. I just went to RootsWeb/WorldConnect and entered Kinzer as the surname and Wright as the spouse's surname and got these hits:

Most of them aren't for Ohio, and the one (Mary Kinzer married John Wright) that is in Ohio has so little info that it's hard to tell much of anything from it.
