RE: Bette C Blenkinsop

I have sent a message to FindAGrave to have both of our memorials for Bette June CALLAHAM Blenkinsop merged. I have updated her memorial to show her burial location in McCall Cemetery, McCall, Valley, Idaho.

Kris, You requested a transfer of Albert Thomson. Would you go to his memorial and send the request that way so I have the right one, etc.

RE: John Iler
Kris, I corresponded with Margaret! She sent me a lovely photo of "Uncle Henry" Ritzius. That's what is on the back of the photo. I am a descendant of Henry's line! I actually found a hard copy of an e-mail where you and I corresponded. My e address has changed and I thought I had lost all of that information. I'm so glad now that I printed a lot of information and notes for my mom to read! I am not surprised to hear of Margaret's passing. She was in her 80s when she sent me the photo that I treasure. I have found, though, that the other man in the photo must be either Henry's brother, John or Nicholas. There is no way it can be his son, Noah. I have found photos on Ancestry of Noah. Good finding you again!

RE: Porter
I'll bet we are related in some way. I'm through the Utah Porters. I don't know about an author. We descend through Sanford Porter. There's a Facebook organization of us, if you're interested.

Hi Kris,
I'd be happy to take over my Mom's Memorial and add a bio and hopefully a photo. You see, since I received some bad health news last Friday I won't be visiting any cemeteries for a couple of months at best, so I have some spare time.
While I'm talking to you I want you to know that there are a lot of my family members sleeping at St. Josephs, in case you get out there again.

Wrong death date on my Mom's marker #38353054
Hello Kris,
My mother died January 10, 1965. Her name was Lillian Frances Duffy Illingworth. My name is Lillian Janice Illingworth Wirtz. I found you on Find a via I can only imagine you reading her death date as 1955 is due to vandalism. That's so sad! Since she was an avid follower of our Blessed Mother, I drew the image of Mary and gave it to the engraver to be part of the stone.
I was so pleased to find a picture of the marker that I joined the Find a Grave group today as a volunteer. I hope to be able to give some others the warm grateful gift you have given me.
Jan Wirtz
