I joined Find-A-Grave in March of 2012 I like taking walks and I like taking pictures. Since I am within walking distance of Oak Hill Cemetery, St. Margaret Cemetery, Menasha Cemetery, Rest Haven Cemetery and St. Patrick Cemetery, they were wonderful places to go for walks. I would read the head stones and see the history and often the heart ache of families. When I discovered Find-A-Grave it only made sense to take my camera along to combine activities I was already doing to help others. I do have family buried in Oak Hill and St. Margaret cemetery but now I feel I have even more family there. I have been taking pictures and adding records randomly but am pleased to help others find their families too.|

you have a memorial for her - 105205323. Both her memorial and that of her husband David show Sarah as one of their children. Sarah was actually David's second wife. I don't know much about her, but I know she was not one of the children. Mary Ann and David had 5 children. I haven't found a way to add the missing children to the memorial. They are Josiah, Clarence R, Mary Emily, Clement Danielson, and Harriet/Hattie Elizabeth.
The oldest child, Josiah, is my g grandfather who, with his new bride, went to China and served as missionaries for 5.5 years, where their three children were born. My maternal grandfather was born in China. I can find him readily on census records. I digress, sorry.
Do you have a tip on how to correct the children part of the memorial? If you wish to transfer this one to me, I'd still need help in listing the children properly. dbelle
Your admirer, dbelle

I find there are two memorials to my ancestor, Mary Ann Blackman Blakely. Sad to say, neither was done by me. I have only done a few memorials, but am now striving to catch up. Mary Ann is my g-g-grandmother. I do have more personal memories to share in a bio. I wonder if you would transfer this memorial to me to take care of, with you still being the contributor. I'll ask the other contributor to do the same.I'm rather surprised that Find a Grave has a duplication of memorials for Mary Ann. The other memorial is #32606759, in case you are curious. My user name is dbelle.

I usually type them out and send them on, but so many people do not add them, and so I have wasted my time. This way the info is there. I am not looking for credit, just want the stories not to go to waste. Thanks for what you do.
I am not sure what to do with Stanley I know the website of Neenah Cemetery show his death as the 18 but the stone states the 19 WHAT TO DO lol
