To all I have helped with photo requests: You're welcome! :)
When viewing memorials, always be sure to CHECK FOR CAPTIONS on attached news articles, photos, etc., by clicking on the picture. The captions are then below the photos. In my memorials and photos I post elsewhere, there's usually pertinent info there.

|OPPSheryl||Mrs. John E. Hill|
so the Mrs. John E. Hill entry in the online records, with the apparently transposed year date of 1887, is a duplicative mistake?
You have probably already figured out that the Mrs. John E. Hill, d. 1887, is Mrs. John E. Hill, sr. (aka Eliza Evans Hill).
So confusing with same names, limited data, etc.
Is that clear as mud? : ) Thanks!
|Cincinnati Spring Grove Volunteer Admin||Autogravr|
this was a person who wrote a program to put all the records in springgrove.org and lakeviewcemetery.com (and planning on others when it was stopped). into findagrave.com . Problem is many of the records already existed which created duplicates. Also, year of death was the interment year which is different. Basically it made a mess. Autogravr was kicked off findagrave.com after this mess. (Findagrave.com needs to shut off mass uploads to prevent this from happening again.).

he is in the same place as his wife. I submitted the change. I can't make the change because he is "famous"
You really don't want to know who or what Autogravr is. It is the bane of my existence.

Hi. I do not have a photo of Hezekiah Parsons. The photo was posted by "gbye" according to the caption under the photo. I'm sorry I could not help you further. Alton

|walden1517||Stuck on Thomas Loveless Crow|
My novice research skills have led me to a dead end and I'm not able to find any information about Thomas Loveless Crowe's (68765250) parents or siblings. You indicated that there was a reference in the 1850 Census but I've not had any luck locating a reference. Any advice or additional information you can provide would be most appreciated.
|PLowe||RE: UnKnown Hendrix|
Thank you, thank you for posting a picture of the Unknown Hendrix stone! It is completely covered up now as you will be able to see in a picture I just uploaded on William C. McKinley's memorial. The water tower is gone now, The stone on the right of William's stone in your picture on the Corning Cemetery page is gone now too, completely buried I guess. I'll go out there and see if we can find it now that I know about where it is. There are a few other stones knocked over near his stone and what appears to be four wheeler tracks all over the dead grass. Thanks again so much for replying and helping me to figure out where it is. My grandmother is 97 and it will mean a lot to her if I can find it.

thank you for the photo of unknown hendrix in corning cemetery.
I've been looking for the Unknown Hendrix in the Corning Cemetery. It's the unborn brother of my grandmother. She led to me Wm. McKinley's grave. He is kin to her also. The directions on the baby's memorial say it's adjacent to Wm. McKinley, but we could not find it. I'm wondering if you could tell me what direction it was in and about how far away. I took some pictures, but I'm unable to load them here for you. Thanks for any assistance.

|Jeanna Balch||RE: William Hanks Sr|
Most of what I have was found in a book called "The Hanks Family Virginia and Westward" by Adin Baber written in 1963. Several other books by him dissect apart the variety of Nancy Hanks born around the same time and tries to point out how she is the mother of Abraham Lincoln. I haven't done research for about 10 years now, and also believe that there is a connection, but not an easy way to prove or pursue it. I have found newspaper articles about twin brothers of Jacob Hanks (my great great grandfather, son of William Hanks Jr. and he was the son of William Hanks Sr who was maybe a brother of Nancy Hanks or maybe just a cousin. An obituary of one of the twin brothers (both served in the Civil War) mentioned them as kin to Abe Lincoln and that they fought for the North in the Civil War. One of these days I would like to organize all the data collected including census records and grave sites I have found of Hanks relatives and newspaper articles related to Jacob Hanks' family of which my great grandmother was Arnetta Hanks and married my great grandfather Charles Maysey which is my maiden name.
