The rules of Find A Grave this site is for the those who have passed away. Donavon #114052361 is still living I would believe. Our thought for the day. Thanks Bonita Meyer Meier

Your Photo Error on #6688005
You have an incorrect marker photo on Arnold P. Walliker's (#6688005) memorial. I was just in Springdale cemetery today and took the correct one. Please remove yours to avoid confusion. Thanks!

Lyle Richard Brooks, known by most as “Jumpy”, was born May 20, 1933 in rural Erie, Illinois, the son of Harold & Ethel Brooks. He graduated from Erie High School in 1951.

Adding Children to Memorial
I have two memorials, #113996644 and #113996665, for Friedrich and Sophie Puetsch Doehrmann. This couple had two other children not listed on their memorial, and I wasn't sure if they could be added now with a link to their memorial. First is Frederick Conrad Doehrmann, #113996639, (your creation) (also wife Sophie, son Melwin, and daughter Dollene W and Verenon E Schocker who do not have a memorial - buried at St. Paul's in Wheatland). The second child and family to add is Christian (Chris) W E Doehrmann, #125777618, wife Dora, #125777584, dau Luetta W, and Elmer Klahn, # 123782634 and #123782588, Klahn son to add is Don E Klahn, #104899873. (Christian, Dora, Luetta, Elmer were created by someone else, and Don died out of state so his is also by someone else. I understand if it isn't possible, but thought I would check.

Wrong photo for Sarah Martin
Find A Grave Memorial #107545864:
I question the tombstone photo on the memorial for Sarah Dove Martin. She married Fayette Martin but the tombstone says Nathan Martin. She died 1879 not 1864 as on the tombstone. Guess you should remove it. Sorry about the inconvenience. Nice and greatly appreciated work otherwise! Joyce

Question about 6192943
The headstone is for Henry and Dora Goldensoph,and Louis and Augusta Dohse. Do you know if this is a memorial erected later, or are Louise and Augusta buried there? I have been unable to find any records of Louis and Augusta Dohse after they arrived in America in 1873, and all their teenage daughters were working as servants in Chicago on the 1880 Census.
