RE: Thompson photo
Well, I can't say for sure as my husband walked half the cemetery and I did the other half. Who else are you looking for?

Hi Don
Your request for a picture of the marker for Rolfe De Witt(Evergreen Cemetery.Leominster,Ma.) has the last name with a space but your name doesn't have the space.The cemetery records do not have the space.Do you know what is correct. Leon

RE: Bethiah Grout
From Find-a-Grave's Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I add a memorial when I'm not sure what cemetery they are buried?

This is similar to adding a memorial for cremation. Do not create a new cemetery which does not exist in order to add these memorials. Location of body unknown should be used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition should be determined and updated within 30 days.


Another way to do it is to create a hyper link linking to relatives in the bio section:

I typed a little message when I declined your edit.

I do not knowingly link to parents/spouses when their memorial says burial location unknown.

It has come up several times on find-a-grave. Some contributors feel like simply adding their family tree to find-a-grave even if they do not know of the cemetery location but that is not how this site is supposed to work. So then a contributor does find a gravestone for that person and then they also make a memorial - and now there are 2 memorials for the same person. And most times the original creator will not delete theirs.

I've had to contact find-a-grave several times to have memorials deleted that are duplicates with burial location unknown.

I appreciate your efforts though.

Re: Christian DeKay Wheeler
Just to let you know the memorial page has been changed to reflect her married name. Good luck on finding her headstone, if there is one! Jane

RE: C DeKay Wheeler
Don, I believe she is to be found at Find a Grave memorial #66529891, listed presently as "Christian De Kay". I have contacted the contributor of this memorial and suggested corrections to the name but so far have not heard from them. The death date on the memorial does match what I had in my research; and another contributor made a comment about the birth date being 15 January 1769 (instead of 13 January 1769)which is what I have. Would love to get a photo of this stone if there is one! I will let you know once I hear anything. Jane

RE: Nathaniel Wheeler
Hi Don, Thanks for your kind offer! I will be working on the Wheeler family again tomorrow and see what, if anything, I can add. Nathaniel Wheeler and his wife, Christiana De Kay were my husband's 4x great grandparents. Jane
