I visited Cedar Hill Cemetery in Lebanon, but only found a marker telling about the cemetery. How did you find this marker? Is it behind the marker I found? Thanks,
Hello I am updating Berkebile Families in America (6th edition) of which Wilbur Frain is a descendant. Could I use your picture of his head stone in the new edition? You would of course be given credit for the photo

Sorry - I forgot to add the FAQ link to the rule about flower tokens: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?searchArg=flowers&page=listFaqs#18
|seekerJay||RE: HENRY RARRET|
I attempted to reply the other day, but I guess it didn't come through. Sorry about that.
The inappropriate information in the flower token was the biographical/genealogical stuff itself. As you know, as more people add their flower, the older ones will fall off the page and the info will never be seen by the memorial owner or visitors. F. A. G. wants the "Suggest a correction" process used instead to transmit the info so it can incorporated into the memorial biography.
Also, I don't think that flowers are searchable by outside search engines while all the info in the biography IS.
That flower was gone by the next day - efficient response by the administration!
All the best, J

Sorry 'bout that, I meant to send that question to the manager of another memorial for Henry Sharp, 50028257, which I believe is his actual grave in Tennessee. That memorial has Henry Sharp born in 1838 in Alabama. The year of death matches, 1864 so it could be the right guy with the wrong birth info.
|Allen Browning||RE: HARRIS|
Again, thank you sir for all you do.
|Allen Browning||RE: Simon and Marion Harris|
Thank you so much Mr. Post. Do you know when those centotaphs were first erected and who supplied the information on them?
|Allen Browning||Simon and Marion Harris|
Dear Mr. Post,
I want to thank you for all your work in documenting the graves of military service members as well as thanking you for your own extensive military service to this country. The reason I am writing to you is concerning the graves of 15 Union soldiers who served in the War Between the States who are represented as 15 crosses and flags at the South Pleasant Methodist Church Cemetery in North Manchester, Wabash County, Indiana. I know you do a lot of this kind of work all over the country, but I would guess that you probably remember them. I am a descendent of two of those men—Simon and Marion Harris.
They are my great-great uncles on my mother's side. The younger brother of these two men, Leander, who died as a child, is also buried in that graveyard as well as my great-great-great grandfather Joseph Harris. The question I have is this: Those crosses and flags look pretty new and they seem to be too close together to contain all 15 men, so are these men all buried somewhere in that graveyard in individual or unmarked graves? Also, the source material for Simon C. Harris on the cross is correct. I was able to document that he indeed died in Gettysburg as a member of the 20th Indiana Volunteer Infantry—the Fighting Three Hundred. So, I am also inclined to believe that Marion Harris died at Fort Donelson as stated on his little white cross, except I am having trouble documenting him as having died at that battle. The question is from where did the information about where these soldiers die come?
Any light you could shed on this would be extremely helpful.
