RE: Henry Bacon
Thanks, I deleted Anna as a spouse. I thought the contributor for Anna's memorial had added Henry as Anna's spouse and that she would have to delete it. I'm sure I have thoroughly confused her. All that needs to be done now is for Anna's contributor to add Henry as her father.
Thanks Mary!

RE: Henry Bacon
Yes, Mary, I noticed that also. Anna was the 16 month old daughter of Henry & Maria. I have sent an edit to the contributor of Anna's memorial to add Henry as her father and an e-mail request to delete her entry as Anna being Henry's spouse.

Thank you so much for the transfer of my g-g-grandfather. You work with Find A Grave is impressive!

RE: Elsie & Lillian
Elsie Marie Merritt's mother was Lilly Pearl Woodruff Merritt, and I have that she married Carey Ervin Merritt on 1 April 1910. Related? I seem to have orphaned them from my Ancestry family tree at the moment, so I can't remember ...

RE: Elsie & Lillian
Great info. The death certificate image, while very small, seemed to say something like "illegitimate" in the father name field. I did have the info for Carey Ervin Merritt and Lilly Pearl Woodruff. It's really a tragic story for this young lady, but you have been an enormous help.

RE: Better scan of Lillian Mae Merritt document?
Thank you for your time. I've come to the conclusion that the "Find a Grave" between mother and daughter was likely in error. For some reason, lots of graves for Pike County, Ohio, don't seem to have the level of detail available from other states. Ohio also offers birth and death indexes with much less information than the birth certificate information available from most counties in North Carolina. You've been amazingly responsive to my inquiry and I'm only sorry that there's no "Paypal Donate" link I can find to express my gratitude.

RE: Better scan of Lillian Mae Merritt document?
I registered for familysearch, but using the search engine still can't get a hit on either Elsie Marie Merritt or her daughter Lillian Mae Merritt. Could you possibly send me the URL for the successful search that landed you the birth certificate? Many thanks.

Better scan of Lillian Mae Merritt document?
This link:

Has a death certificate I can't read because it's too small. I'd love to be able to pick up info like the father, etc.

Just joined, so I don't know how to make this request privately ...

Any help there appreciated!

I would like to make a good quality scan of the original portrait of Alice Emily Allen. Do you know where it is located?
