|The Elusive Ancestor|
I went searching for an ancestor. I cannot find him still.
He moved around from place to place and did not leave a will.
He married where a courthouse burned. He mended all his fences.
He avoided any man who came to take the U.S. Census.
He always kept his luggage packed, this man who had no fame.
And every 20 years or so, this rascal changed his name.
His parents came from Europe. They should be upon some list of passengers
to U.S.A., but somehow they got missed.
And no one else in this world is searching for this man.
So, I play geneasolitaire to find him if I can.
I'm told he's buried in a plot, with tombstone he was blessed; but the
weather took engraving, and some vandals took the rest.
He died before the county clerks decided to keep records.
No Family Bible has emerged, in spite of all my efforts.
To top it off this ancestor, who caused me many groans,
Just to give me one more pain, betrothed a girl named JONES.

|Robert Simmons||Request Transfer Maintenance of #99524284|
Kay, thank you for creating the memorial for Nellie (Alderson) Peterson, #99524284, buried in Caroline, NY. I request you transfer maintenance of the memorial to me. Nellie (Alderson) Peterson was the sister of my grandmother and the aunt of my mother. I would like to add information and pictures to the memorial while endeavoring to find a grandchild or great grandchild of Nellie. Thank you. Bob Simmons,#46941336
We're aware of the problem member. Trying to fix the problem with another problem is not how we'd like things to be done.

You are welcome. I am a descendant of Wealthy White Bower's brother John Porter White. If I run across anything else, I will message you. Sue

|Lynn Cox||same photo for Strickland sisters|
Hi Key -
thanks for all of your work on Find A Grave!
While researching my husband's family, I noticed that two sisters have the same photo.
Edith Mae Strickland: Find A Grave Memorial# 104698917
Florence Emeline Strickland Flanders: Find A Grave Memorial# 104698917
Can you tell me which one is correct?

|D. L. Lee||RE: Evergreen Cemetery|
Thank you. I am not sure if an Evergreen Cemetery even exist in South Carrollton, Kentucky. It is probably a case where a small community or family cemetery has been known by multiple names over time.
Again, thank you for notifying me about the duplication, and for all you do to improve the accuracy of memorials. D. L.
|Lee Ashmore||Re: Uncooperative contributors|
I also sent a message to A. J. Marik #1003, executive administrator of findagrave. You might send one too.
His memorial has been returned to family.
