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: Corte Koethof
I think it did delete it off of two of three memorials.
I think that the 3 people listed on that stone, from top to bottom, are:
Margaretha Cornelia Kolthof, # 166383192
Maria de Jong, # 164437212
Marina Elizabeth de Wence, # 164437213

Margaretha Cornelia Kolthof, # 166383192, has both a close up and a full stone photo very similar to the one that was on Corte Koethof, so if you cannot find the original easily, you could use the full stone photo from this memorial.

Maria de Jong, # 164437212, has only a close up photo, so the full stone photo got deleted.

Marina Elizabeth de Wence, # 164437213, this is from the bottom of the stone where it is hard to read. I identified her by only her middle name and DOB & DOD. There are no photos on her memorial, when you open it up, so the photo(s) got deleted (but the photo icon remains on the list)

Since the full stone is so hard to read at the bottom, it might be reasonable to mention that Maria Elizabeth de Wence is on the same stone as Margaretha Cornelia Kolthof and Maria de Jong. Or something to that effect.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw your email.
Because it DOES look like there are two headstones for the same family, one in white, one in black.

I am sorry but I will not be able to sort this out.
I will be flying to America this weekend for a 4 weeks trip.
If you can get the cemetery to give you an explanation that would be great!

You sent me some information about duplicates that may have been made of memorials of mine.
Thank you for that.
I will check things - like the correct spelling and other info - and get back to you.
I have just returned from a trip so it may take a few days.
If you like you can contact me by email

RE: Dutch surnames
Thanks for the information. I suspect it is not just Dutch surnames that are corrupted. Here is what I think: Find-A-Grave needs to do something about this. There does not appear to be a way to contact their webmaster. It looks like F.A.G. wants the memorial contributor's to sort it out and police the database for errors and duplication; good luck with that! We cannot do it. In my opinion, the F.A.G. webmaster should design or buy a Boolean type program that totals the complete name parts into the whole name, then it filters and sorts the first, middle, and last names correctly as we contributors upload their names in real time. If you know how to contact Find A Grave, feel free to forward this to them if you agree.

RE: Second thought
Thank you for your reply. I will contact Find A Grave and see if they can transfer your name back to my name on the memorial.

Thomas Gerrard
I would like to know how you managed to receive credit for writing his biography. I made his memorial and did a biography. If there were things you wished to add I would have been happy to do it and thanked you for your consideration.

I am a direct descendant of Thomas Gerrard and will contact Find A Grave to remove your name from my memorial or if you can remove it yourself then let me know. I don't believe you can.
