Janis Babb
Hi Stanley,
I am confused about this couple. They are listed as buried in two cemeteries. Hollywood and Bessemer City. The tombstone is the same just different cemeteries. Can you please get this matter settled for me. Thanks,
Janis Webb Babb

Error - Eura Morgan Lance
Hi, Eura is buried in Hollywood Cemetery, Gastonia, Gaston County, NC - rather than Gaston Memorial Park.

She is in findagrave 2 times at 2 different locations, but with same name, same stone, once as your entry (above ) and once as:
Find A Grave Memorial# 125467399.

Duplicate Memorials in Two Different Cemeteries
Hi, I found some duplicates you have of the same people in two different cemeteries, I started sending individual SAC notifications but it's going to go over the limit shortly.

Just for the surname Messer alone, please see where you have two memorials for the same people in these two different cemeteries, please delete whichever ones are in error:

Edgewood Cemetery in Gaston Co, NC:

Lowell City Cemetery in Gaston Co, NC:

You may need to check more surnames, I was just looking for Messers and found the problem fairly quickly.

thanks in advance for deleting the duplicates.

George Moose & wife Betsy Hullander Moose.
Do you know who the father of George is ?
I am trying to update 13 volumes that were published by Carl & George Moose. Carl is deceased &
George has given me all of his info as he is in bad health. Any help would be appreciated.
Have a good day,

Lowell City Cemetery
There is no Lowell City Cemetery. It is named Edgewood and is already listed here at F.A.G. and your memorials can easily corrected by editing burial info if you are the owner. Was out taking pics yesterday and found dupe listings on many. Just FYI.
