Thank You
Ben,
I appreciate all your efforts in locating and photographing my 3X Great-Aunt's mausoleum. The photos turned out great. It looks like a beautiful final resting place. Thank you so much!

Ben,

You are the 'Maine' man when it comes to fulfilling my Dyer requests! Once again I thank you for your time, energy and efforts. I am hoping to make it up that way sometime this year but until then, I truly appreciate your help.

Kindest regards,
KDorsey

Babbidge Family
I received a note from another volunteer about the Babbidge family and spent some time this morning over breakfast looking up records and adding info, and linking family members... all before noticing the series of edits you had requested yesterday!

Thanks for sending them along... you will probably receive notification that I declined most of them this time. Wish I had checked my pending edits first!

:) Thanks, Ben!

RE: Lillie Cummings
Well, to be honest, I'm not sure myself, anymore lol. I was spending a concentrated amount of time of the Cummings branch of my family tree, and I think I was requesting the headstone in order to verify whether or not she was in our Cummings branches. So I've noted the info, but as of today have still not figured out what led me to her/her family--but I'm thinking it's because I had an "L. Cummings" in my list of that time period and needed to check Lillie out. Most of my Cummings are from PA and WV, though, so it was a long shot.

Elliot F. Clark
Hi,
I'm not sure how to go about correcting this memorial. The picture you took is for Eliot F Clark Sr. 1818-1880 and his wife Mary Ann Frye 1816-1888. I thin the picture should be with the memorial for the Elliot F. Clark Jr. with the unknown birth and death dates. You have put the picture with his son's memorial. He died in 1908. I can't tell if from the second picture you took if the other marker is the son's or if he's in a completely different location or if his memorial ois on the back of his father's.

Thanks for your help. The pictures are great.
