I am working on finding the graves of the descendants of Anthony Yerkes which are listed in the "Chronicles of the Yerkes Family With Notes On The Leech And Rutter Families" by Josiah Granville Leach published in 1904, and on finding the graves of those people mentioned in "Sketches of William Hicks, Abner Hicks, Jasper Hicks, George Harris, James Crews, John Earl and something of their Descendants With Comparisons of Present Conditions of Living With Those of Sixty Years Ago" by Titus Thurston Hicks, printed in 1926 and reprinted in 1954. I have virtual cemeteries for those that I have found.

Posting photos on FindAGrave does not automatically put them in the public domain. Please ask if you want to use any photos of mine and tell me what you want them for. My email is rafbeas at aol. If I find my photos used without my permission, I will take all necessary steps to redress the situation.

Do not email transfer requests. Use the Edit tab on the memorial. Transfers outside Find A Grave guidelines will be assessed on a case by case basis. Please tell me your specific relationship to the deceased and explain what you have to contribute to the memorial that I can't add. I am glad to add any links (except to memorials with no burial location) or bio information that you send. I do not add links to memorials where the final disposition has not been determined. Do not put obituaries or other information on the deceased in a flower.

RE: People with unknown grave locations
People from that time period have long since had their graves destroyed except in rare cases. Personally, I think the bios properly constructed and documented are far superior to the trees on Check mine out.

Grave Site
According to a letter, date 26 September 1939, from Dr. Rubino of the Federal Security Agency, US Public Health Service, my grandfather was buried in grave # 5120 ( a plot set aside for seaman) on Sept. 16, 1939. Do you have any other information. Thank you for your help.

Brinsmead, Brinsmade, Brinsmaid
Check out # 20998829 if you will. I was looking through this list for the mother of an ancestor whose name was spelled variously "Brinsmade, Brinsmead, Brainsmaid, and Brunsmade in different places.

I noticed that this Mercy Brinsmade (who was born around the time I'm looking at) —on her stone, her and her husband's name is spelled "Brinsmaid" I THINK.

This is an example of how you should always use the name the way it is spelled on the stone. This name was spelled a variety of ways, and none of them is a mistake. (I wrote them and pointed this out just now.)

Spelling the name "Malleville" "Mallewille" is not an example of this, because the name "Malleville" was NEVER spelled "Mallewille" anywhere, except on that gravestone. So to put the Memorial under that name would be wrong to do, because descendants would never look under that name.

Whereas the descendants of Brinsmades WOULD look under its various spellings, because it is well-known that it WAS spelled in a variety of ways.

I wanted to point that out to you because I think that THIS is the kind of case where one should insist that the name be spelled as it is on the stone.

One's thinking needs to be flexible as well as observant, I think. One does not want to cause harm by one's decision, as the decision to spell Malleville "Mallewille" would. I HOPE you see what I'm talking about now!

RE: Viewed stone
Sorry, The stone of Charles Garrett, Find A Grave Memorial# 128650552, I thought I was attaching a note to his memorial.
Charles Garrett's info and that of Rosanah Kuykendall are on the same stone, lying flat among the weeds, Per the stone, after his name are the
words, "departed this life A.D. 1847 aged 51 years".
As far as can be told, it is only stone there.

Death Year
I viewed this stone yesterday. The death year is given as 1847. Given the age of 51 years (also on the stone) this would make birth about 1796.

Hi RosalieAnn,
I tried to send you a private message in the Forums and it wouldn't let me. Is your mail box full or do you just have it turned off?

Cheers, Rich
