Bio and Links
Bio Photo I would love to build the biographies (original stories) of any of the memorials I manage. So please feel free to send me what you would like me to add. Do not forget to write if and how you would like to be noted as a credit for the information... Name, partial name, handle, etc.

I am happy to cut and paste anything exactly as you send it to me so long as NO LIVING person is mentioned in the update. If it is not my Direct line, I am happy to Transfer once I have tried to get any valuable clues about my direct line. Please do not post obituaries on my memorials.

I am so thankful for the rewarding contacts I have made through Find A Grave. Several are family I never new I had. And they are wonderful.

I am glad for all those that I have been able to work with so far and for all those who I will be able to work with in the future. If I have not done something to your liking then please contact me as I wish to be respectful to all who work so hard to make Find A Grave what it is.
I promise I work with anyone who contacts me appropriately.

Best Wishes to all and God Bless.

RE: Siler Mix-ups
I can't think right now what the names are that need to be removed. I asked the person to remove them. I even posted the death certificate stating where one or two were buried but it don't no good. Thanks for the offer to help.

Joseph Siler
I did it. In your note for him you say his father is Joseph 'Cripple Jake' he is the son of Joseph T. Siler and Mary (Anderson).

Jos. Siler
I'm not sure how to do that but I'll try.

RE: Joseph Siler(s)
April, I have 32 Joseph Silers in my family tree. My personal opinion is that the Joseph listed in the "Lower Siler Cemetery" with the military headstone is not Joseph born 1827 and died 1903. In my tree, I don't have a burial place for him. I have him as the son of Burgess and Mary Croley Siler and married to Christina Adkins.
Their children were Susanna, Mary, George Washington, Matilda, Thomas E. & Christine.
There is another Joseph Siler, born 1846 died 1868 who could have been the one with the military stone. He was the son of Hedrick Benjamin and Jennie Warren Siler. I don't have a burial place for him.
There is a Jos. Siler with the same identical stone buried in the Jacob Siler Cemetery.
There is several Siler Cemeteries in Whitley County and submitters are getting them mixed up. I have three burials that I can't get removed off the page for Siler Cemetery at Verne.
I know this is not much help but it's all I have.

RE: Joseph Siler(s)
Thanks for the reply. As for Memorial #80231169 I found a civil war pension record for Joseph Siler, it states his widow Emily A. Siler, CO.C 49th Ky. Inf., date of death Sept. 12,1909. Given the fact that Joe Sr., this Joe and Emily are in the same cemetery I believe him to be Joe Jr. Since this Joe died in 1909 the dates on this memorial are wrong and are the dates for Memorial #145810807 who I belive to be Joe Gray Siler.
Thank you
Mike Siler

Arlington Cemetery is indeed a beautiful place. What's your grandfather's name? -- I'll look him up next time I'm there. I seem to go there with one person in mind and find half a dozen I wasn't expecting. Did you know, for example, that the actor Lee Marvin and Joe Louis (Barrow), the Brown Bomber, are buried next to each other?

Thanks again for your cooperation on G.W. and Mollie.

Marriage Certificate

Thanks for the marriage certificate for G.W. West and Bettie Davis Lamb. They had Mollie Johnson witness it. Ugh. Rod

RE: Molly West
Feel free to soften it. "Abuse" might be a better word than "affair." I am still trying to figure whose kids were whose. My only tie to these people is through (second cousin, several times removed) Bettie Davis.
