A quick note: To add an internal link in the biography, you would need to type

(I put this here because I use it frequently and am tired of digging for it in the FAQ.)

RE: Munson Memorials
Thank you very much in advance for helping with this. Do you want any pages of the Munson Record by Myron A Munson scanned to you. I am working on that side of my family right now and using it as a guideline. My great gma was a Munson.

Stephen Munson
I noticed there are 2 f-a-grave memorials for Stephen/Elizabeth Munson & son Garritt

Stephen #37525138 & # 121602648
Elizabeth #121602730 & #37525136
Garritt/Garrett#37525137 & #121602823

I am sending edits to link them so both can remain unless there is proof one is correct. I will send messages to both parties.

RE: Frances McDonald #88859745
Dave, Glad I was able to help you correct the dups.

Unfortunately, we are not related; nor have I found Frances' father. I was working the MacDonald side.

I'm not related to any of these people. I had taken pictures of the monuments in their particular section of Hope Cemetery and just created the pages for her husband's parents this morning. You processed the edit to complete that link.

I searched your inventory of memorials to see if you had any of John P. MacDonald's siblings which could also be linked to their parents. That's when I saw you had multiple pages for Frances.

Thanks for your quick response.

Best regards,

Happy New Year

RE: #37604287
Thank you for your comment. We are related, but just distant. On his birth date I didn't know exactly what to put. I have that he was born 1605/1606 in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, England - that is known for sure - didn't know about the 1606/1606 - maybe you could put one of the dates in the birth section with a note in the bio that it could be either year. About Abigail - on it states that she was born 1645 in Windsor, Hartford, CT. and died in 1649 there also - some reports say 1645 others say 1648, so she was just a child when she died. Hope this helps some. Thank you again.
