E. Eugene Webb I was wondering if you might please be so kind as to allow me to use your picture of the gravemarker you have added to the memorial of E Eugene Webb, number 114765301 (my great uncle) in my entry for him at ancestry.com. I can't seem to find any on the site already and I of course would give you credit. Just let me know when you can, thanks!
Photo of Elizabeth Kerley On the memorial page of Elizabeth Kerley you added a photo. This is a duplicate memorial page. Would you please removed your photo and add it to the older memorial page? Then I will contact the person and have them delete their newer memorial page.
The older memorial page belongs to Ellen Kerley Manuel. I am doing her edits for her while she is ill.
