Nellie Weger Memorial
Would you be willing to transfer Memorial #38391716 to me? She is my grandmother's sister and I can connect her memorial to her parents. Thanks, Larry Soward

Ethel Lyde #24483302
Hello Jan, I have sent you an edit for Ethel Lyde which may be confusing. The memorial as it is shows her maiden name to be Conyers while, in fact, her first marriage was to Presley Conyers. I can't verify her true maiden name but it may be Brazil or Brasil. I have put the Conyers as one of her names in the edit and have linked her to both spouses and two of her three daughters.
The other memorial for her in the same cemetery is a duplicate.
If you have any info about her, please correct or add it. I am photographing part of the IOOF cemetery in Norman, OK where her daughter Fern is buried and that is how I got to her by trying to link Fern with her parents.
Best regards, Kay Marshall

Transfer Request
Hello Mrs. Lyde- I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer two of my Grand Aunts and my Grand Uncle. They are:

1) Maggie Shaw -#38718965
2) Rosie Rebecca Hale- #83945543
3) Johnnie May-#172324763

I have been doing family research for about 5 years. My grandfather, James Cooper May, was the younger brother to the above-referenced siblings.
Your bio is wonderful and reminded me of my folks!! My parents( Roger Gray Miller & Thelma Marion May Miller) were married 58 years.I can say they truly cherished every minute together.

Thanks for your time and consideration.
Sincerely, Marsha Miller Johnson- Find-A-Grave Member #48128294.

Callie Chastain
Jan.. I am so sorry about a mistake I made in my last message. The "other" Chastain was NOT Lorenzo. It was David A. Again, Sorry. Marilyn

Calli Chastain
I think that there is a problem with her. I think there are TWO Callie's. Callie Sullivan and Callie Wortham. Both married to Chastains's. One to Perry and one to Lorenzo. I think that the dates of the two women have been mixed together and that the one here is married to Perry , BUT the dates are for the one that was married to Lorenzo. I think this needs to be checked, don't you?

Father Harvey & Mother Harvey
Thank you so much for photographing this gravestone, even though the vagueness of it might deter some. His name is Robert Ellison Harvey born in Cass County, Texas on April 3, 1854. He married Nancy Jane Haynes on Feb 28, 1878. They had 10 children that we know of. First one born in 1860 and last one born in 1901. He died on Jan 13, 1916 in Bryan County, OK. Nancy Jane Haynes was born in Georgia on Jan 7, 1860, and died in Bryan County, Oklahoma on June 12, 1913. There is a page from the old Harvey bible that provided us with this missing info. Again, thank you very much, this helps so much in tying those loose ends together.

Hello Jan,
Thank you VERY much for the transfer of Ben's memorial. I look forwarding to adding information to his bio and hope to help honor his life that was ended much too soon.
Best regards,

Linsteadt/Linnstaedt memorials
Thank you for the transfers of the Linnstaedt/Linsteadt memorials at Colbert Ok

I appreciate you taking the time to create them and manage them all these years. And all that you have done to help other's by making their loved ones graves available online. I love the find-a-grave's concept and willingness to provide it to us and for us all.

Its really needed with the shape so many of the old stones are in and in many cases they are already gone or unreadable.

Progress is amazing.

Thanks again,
Kathryn Linsteadt Langston
