|I'm in the process of researching my memorials. I try to get documentation for all the information I place on each memorial.|
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for misinformation placed on the memorials I manage via "edits". I've tried to keep up and cannot. It's too time consuming trying to verify each edit.
Do not use my pictures without my permission. I will not give permission for them to be used on Ancestry dot com. You may not agree with this policy but it is mine to make.
Many thanks to all who have helped me with my memorials. A very big thank you to Find A Grave for this outstanding web site.

|Amy Auchtung||RE: Travis Keller|
You're welcome. :) I walked 10.75 miles out there on this visit, only searched 4 sections, and only found 10 stones. It's a monumental task and I actually got stopped by staff this time, although he didn't give me a hard time. I ended up having to have foot xrays 2 days after my visit so I won't be returning out there any time soon. I hate that there's so many requests for this location but I'm only one person in a never ending ocean of stones.
Hope you're doing well. :)

Not sure what's happening - I went looking for 101903578 and couldn't find it. Also tried a name search - same results. I remember very clearly going down to Philadelphia Community and finding that marker. It was in an odd location. BTW, I do extensive graveyard research both with the survey team and with the Heritage Alliance, so holler if I can ever help you - Washington County almost exclusively, though. I've seen your initials out there quite a bit. Gordon

I would need your email address to be able to send the .pdf file, as I can't attach such a file in this reply, so instead, I have saved it as a .jpeg file (picture) and added it to Mr. Haskin's memorial as a photo. Just drop me a line if/when you want me to delete the photo from the memorial and I'll gladly remove it.
Thanks for making the requested edits!

|Larry Gardner||RE: Robert Daniel Love|
Here's some of the story from what I can gather from relatives. Uncle Bert died all alone, no family or friends. Some people near him thought he had no relatives and tried to claim his home and possessions. Somehow, someway the authorities found a letter in his home from his sister, Nancy (Love) Pearson. They notified her. Nancy and other members of the family rushed down to Springfield from Greene Co., IN. In the house they found the place turned upside down, apparently some things were stolen and they found blood stains on furniture. They had the theory that Uncle Bert was murdered. However the perpetrators were never charged. From what I can gather Walter V. Love did not go there. Walter was living in Washington DC at the time.
My theory is, the perpetrators had one of them claim to be Walter V. Love and fudge the DC.That would show a bogus link to next of kin. Whatever happened their plot did not pan out. I say the DC here is purely bogus. If someone wanted to do some work I bet they could find a copy of a newspaper clipping on the story in the library.
thank you for creating this...just thank you...i dont think there are words for what i feel at finding this....he was my grandfather...he was a man...and is a legend all at the same time...just thank you

Thank you for the transfers. I will ask the granddaughter who gave the article if she has photos, as I do not. I intend to keep your work on memorial & thanks so much for all that you have done!
|Carl F. Johnson||Masters family|
i just wanted to thank you for all the work you have put into Find A Grave and for all of the family members of mine that you have found and created. Isiah Masters was my great grandfather and I used to hear stories galore about him. I knew he was the one that had lost his arm in the Civil War...my grandmother said it was at Gettysburg....was never certain, but was very happy to see you have it on his memorial. Plus all of the others....thank you so very much!

Hi, I just returned from Kansas City where I attended my Aunt Janie's (Mary Jane) funeral. Going thru all of her old photos etc. got me going on my family tree again. I was happy to find this web site and more then that, that you had already posted this most beautiful tribute to her. Thank you for taking the time to do the work you do, I turly appreciate it. Once I get a little better at this, I'll be able to add some photos too.
|Bonnie Bailey||RE: Harold Graham|
While searching for some ancestry I decided to visit the Fort Scott National Cemetery site. My dad, Harold Graham is burie there. I looked at his grave and found the picture in his navy uniform and was thrilled to death. I have never seen this picture of him before. Seen lots of him in his uniform but never this one. I did save it to pass on to my sisters. Hope you don't mind... Thanks again for making my day!!!
