RE: John E. Schmitt
You're welcome. I apologize for the edits and I know that the name and date are not correct on the marker however, by placing exactly what the marker says, helps avoid duplicates. You surely can put all the information that IS correct in the bio so that if someone else happens to go out there and they see that the memorial is already created (with the name and date that is on the marker) then this saves you the time and an explanation as is the case with us, lol. I created the memorial because I didn't not see one created for "Kathrine" (different name and different date) until you added those links then realized, hmmm, could this be same the person? lol. Also, it's more to help avoid headaches in the near future for you. If you decide to leave it as is, no worries mate, I did ask on the forum a while ago before this) and that is what they told me to do so that is why I always enter what is on the marker and then if something is different such as name spelling, etc, I place that in the bio section, as well. I hope this clears it up as to why I put what is on the marker in the appropriate fields and why I suggested it as well. It's also mentioned in the FAQs as well.

That photo is priceless. Your very lucky to have that photo. Always nice hearing from you. Cheers! :)

RE: John E. Schmitt
Hello! You're very welcome and glad I could add those photos for you as well. The photo you posted on David & Catherine's memorial is amazing! I love the image! The story you told about John is touching and sad but why sugar coat it, it's life and we each have our own stories to tell. I appreciate your aesthetic and how you tell it like it is. I can only hope that someone will be doing the same for us when we are gone. When I see these markers, I often wonder what kind of person they were, what was their life like, what did they look like. You captured it all with the photo and description of his life.

Also, I sent an edit for "Kathrine's" name. They surely did sound it out phonetically, lol, quite creative though. Also, David's year of death is different than what the marker says. Just wanted to mention this to you. Thank you for all that you do. Also thank you for the nice salutations. Cheers and be well.

RE: Kathrine & David Schmitt
Hell Jay,

I've deleted Kathrine's memorial, accepted the edits and added the photos to your memorials. I also added the photo that I took today (snowy day, brrrr, lol). It's up to you to update "Catherine's" name and information to match the marker. This is merely a suggestion. Always a pleasure my fellow findagraver. Peace to you. Cheers! :)

RE: Frances J.E. (Roslund) Enos
Done! Sorry, out of town with family and didn't get to all the edits as fast as usual. Thank you for your correction. Sometimes I have found families didn't always put death dates on pre bought stones and left it blank. Happy she is still with us.have a great new year

John Carter, Carter Cemetery at Oak Ridge
Jay, thanks so much for your efforts to get to the John Carter grave, and your notes which should help somebody get there some time. I had assumed the cemetery name implied proximity to the Oak Ridge campground but evidently it's not aproximate enough! --Edwin
