Bio Photo Please use the Edit tab on the memorial to send any info or links to me and I will update.

My added vs. managed memorials difference is quite large because I manage many memorials transferred to me from a now inactive member. I work on these daily to update with info and add photos.

Please do not copy my photos to other websites (including Ancestry) or publications without my permission.

I have requested information for burial locations for my husband's family.

Thanks for taking the time to enlighten me regarding the Find A Grave guidelines for name formatting. Clearly, I had not read the FAQs and was, as you noted, following the convention in family tree software. I love this site and would not intentionally be a rule breaker.

I called the cemetery and Charles is not buried with his wife. You should probably delete this or at least make a note that he is not actually buried here.
Since he was 66 when she died he either remarried and is buried somewhere else or they divorced??

RE: John Elliott #28962066
You are correct, she is his step-mother, his mother is Anna B. Robertson Elliott memorial # 28961848.
Sorry for the bad edit. Stayed up too long and didn't do due diligence before posting the edit. Thanks for helping to keep his memorial accurate.

Thanks again,

RE: Jane Elliott #28962043
The information used for Jane's edits are from 14 family trees from Ancestry .com showing Jane Yates daughter of Henry Yates (1786-1865 and Millicent (Coleman) Yates 1791- 1830) born in KY. on 23 Oct 1825 in Warsaw, KY married to John F. Elliott in 1825 in IL. In US. & International Marriage Records of 1560-1900 Jane Yates is shown to have married John F. Elliott in IL.. If you are sure of your information being correct I have no problem with these edits not being used. I only want to put forth edits with correct information and add to any memorials that I can.

RE: Clarence Ballweg #28948985
The information I used for the edits was from the Connolly and Fromme Family Trees from Ancestry .com I have no sources for proof of the dates. Thanks for presenting me with the correct dates. Clarence is a second cousin twice removed to me. His paternal grandmother Barbara Boll is my 3 times great aunt.

RE: Hmmmm....Creighton
Hi BjJ, I now have both her obit and funeral notice. Good question, where is she buried. I will check into this issue as she is my 1st cousin. So all of the Oak Ridge burials have been added to Find A Grave? I have been looking for my 3rd great-grandfather John Wood(s) who died before 1880 and was thought to be buried in Oak Ridge. I will send my email address via Charlotte's memorial so we can use email from now on. Thanks for the info and have a great day, Walt
