Please understand that I have no control over the names, words and dates engraved on stones, written on death certificates or provided in obituaries. I didn't write them. I'm only providing those previously written words to you.

I have been a contributor on this site for over 13 years, so yes it stands to reason that I have a fair number of memorials that I have entered, added to and lovingly care take even though they may not be a branch of my own family. It's quite possible that if I had not entered the memorial to begin with, you may not have been able to find them.

Individuals using this site need to realize that we are all volunteers and do not need to deal with abusive behavior or rudeness just because we won't make a transfer to someone who has registered two days or two months ago and want every memorial on the site with the surname of Jones. Or a transfer of a memorial of someone who they think just might be a fifth cousin, four times removed of their third ex-husband.

If you are new to this site, PLEASE read the "Frequently Asked Questions" located "HERE". If you take just a moment to familiarize yourself with these guidelines, it will definitely help yours and everyone else's state of mind, blood pressure and headaches.

If you will please use the "Edit" tab located on each memorial, I will be more than happy to correct, edit or add information to a memorial that is meaningful. I will not add all of the information from the past ten census records that have been released or any distasteful or disturbing messages.

Please be kind. We all make mistakes from time to time. If I have made a mistake or created a duplicate memorial later than one you have created, please use the "Edit" tab and send me the correction or let me know of the duplication and it will be taken care of quickly.

I will make transfers using the "Guidelines" if they are not a relative of mine. I will transfer your children, siblings, parents, grandparents or great-grandparents. All other requested transfers will be considered if you use the "Edit" feature and state your relationship or intended need for the memorial.

Lastly and most importantly, there are so many absolutely wonderful people that use Find-A-Grave! I am very appreciative for all of the suggested corrections, additional information and photos that have been provided. Please don't allow the rude, abusive and sometimes rather bizarre behavior of individuals to curb your enthusiasm or your want to help others.

Warm regards,

Beta County Mapper

2 Ida Weyels
Thanks for finding and posting those obituaries. I think the plot thickens. In addition to Theodore Weyel marrying both Ida Braun and Ida Ruempel - Ida Ruempel first married Heinrich Scheffler.

Apparently Theodore and Ida Braun had son Arthur Weyel while Heinrich and Ida Ruempel had son Emil Scheffler. Then Theodore Weyel married Ida Ruempel Scheffler and they treated the boys (born a year apart both in Dec!) as brothers.

Ida Ruempel Scheffler Weyel's obit and Theodore Weyel's obit both mention both boys as surviving sons. The obit you posted for Theodore calls Emil, Amiel Scheffler.

I couldn't write a better soap opera script if I tried!

Thanks for the catch LOL. The 0 is next to the 9 and I guess I just hit the wrong key and never noticed. I appreciate your calling it to my attention.

James Fred Smith
James Fred Smith is my great Uncle. I would love to manage his memorial. His father and mother I do manage, and would love to add him to the family memorial I am attempting to build, connecting them together once again. I know his death certificates states his mother was Elizabeth Paxton, however her name was Adeline Lucetta Paxton, and she died before James Fred was five years old. His father was David Henry Smith as stated on his death certificate. He and his father both died in VA hospitals, different states.
