49372352 Pearl Upthegrove
Hi Richard. Please review #49372352 for Pearl Upthegrove. 1) There are 3 different headstones on her memorial page. 2) The information on the memorial page refers to the description of the cemetery, and not info regarding Pearl. I did find the following:
Newspaper Obituary dated March 7, 1929 from the Paulding County Library, Paulding, Ohio: "Miss Pearl Mae Upthegrove, colored, died at the state hospital, Dayton, Thursday, Feb. 28. Funeral was held Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock at the Crowell funeral home, Paulding. Burial in the Upthegrove cemetery."
In order for you to obtain all the credit, can assist you. I hope that I have been helpful. Thank you.

Hey Richard, please unlink Elizabeth Miller from this memorial. Through cemetery records and many emails it has been proven this is NOT Charles' wife nor is this my gr-gr-grandmother. If you view her memorial now, you will see this is a 2yr old child and Elizabeth "Betsy" Sherwood Van Wormer is not buried here nor is this her memorial.. Thank you! Charlotte

photo, Jacob Stahl
You have a picture posted for Jacob Stahl (1780-1854), Hartford City cemetery, IN that actually is not connected with his tombstone or grave at all. It is of a very tall and elaborate structure that is down the hill from where he is buried, in a different section of the cemetery. It might be helpful to remove the photo since it is confusing. I spent a long time looking around the area of the photo when I visited the cemetery before I found his actual grave elsewhere.

RE: LTC Helen G. Purviance
Hmm. Me neither.

But, if she were on the famous list, I'd give her five stars. So I'll give You five stars for the work you put in on her memorial :-D

Have a good day -- Rhonda

RE: Hannah Smith
Sarah apparently responded for you to add the information to make the memorial correct. See - there are 2 Hannah's; the Hannah on this memorial that Sarah asked you to enter the dates for is the Hannah for Paul Adams Sr. and Abigail Parkhurst. The Hannah in my note about Hannah in the original way the memorial was is for Hannah of Paul Adams Jr. (Paul Adams & Abigail Parkhurst - parents of Paul Adams Jr) and Margaret Diehl.
Now that the dates have been corrected per Sarah's note, the memorial is correct and the notes can be removed. I have data to back all this up, if you need it just send me an email.

James W Robb # 93253983
I recently picked up a photo request for a member of James' family. I was given a print-out of the block and lot and it lists James' birth year as 1901 and his death date as 10/20/1938. Thought I'd pass this info along in case you'd like to update his memorial page info.

You placed a headstone photo on the wrong memorial. Your photo is of Elizabeth Finser Brown (#26698641) whose the wife of William C. Brown. There are photo on her memorial already. Your photo should be removed. Thank you!

RE: susan adams
Thanks for getting back to me.

No problem on my end..... I just thought I'd send what I had.

Since she does share a monument with Adams and her sons, you're right -- I think it should be listed as "Adams" also.
