Maple Lawn Cem - Akron, NY
Hi Dennis,
I've been slowly photographing the stones in this cemetery which is no small feat given the condition of most of them. I'm finding several stones not on the list (found online), transcription errors, several instances where the list contains the maiden name when it should be a married name ie; Jane Smith wife of Daniel Jones and she's listed under Jane SMITH (as an example).

I'm also finding several cenotaphs for the same people at Evergreen Lawn Cemetery for which I unknowingly created duplicate memorials. I'm slowly going back and deleting them as I add photo's of the same people to Maple Lawn.

I've probably sent quite a few edits through to you already, and no doubt there will be more. I just wanted you to know why you're getting them all.

Thank you!

Please remove the fact that she was a DAR member.

DAR was not established until 1890. She died in 1861.

Thank you

Elizabeth Scofield

Hi Dennis,

I've committed what I'm sure is a FindaGrave sin. I was working on my Eliakim Scofield line in the Corry, PA area and couldn't find a listing for his sister-in-law, Elizabeth (who is buried right next to him). So I created a page, added Mom & Dad, as well as all the siblings and her husband, and posted it

Then I realized that you already had one, but it didn't have all the ancillary information. So, now there are two. Since mine has far more information, perhaps you'd consider deleting yours.

For relevance, Eliakim and Rachel (Elizabeth's sister) are my 3rd great grandparents, so I'm in the actual line of descendants.

Your Elizabeth: 106252308
My Elizabeth: 162758874

Sorry for the duplication.

ME Three
Charles A Gamin
Memorial #127680095 you state that Charles was in the Civil War but I do not think that is correct. Charles Gamin born 1821 in England died 1869 in New York was my great grandfather. Charles Arthur Gamin was a second cousin 2x removed and he served in the Civil War. Although the record for his head stone says he is buried in Maple Lawn he is really buried in Salisbury, Herkimer, New York along with his wife. Did you actually see the grave of Charles Gamin husband of Caroline Blackmore Gamin or was this information forwarded to you? I have searched since 1999 and have found no record of my great grandfather ever serving during the Civil War. Non of the records I have indicate a middle name for him either.
Thank you for any light you are able to shed on this situation.

The stone...
Hi Dennis, I found that stone that I can't figure out. If you could take a look at Fern McCray's memorial 99301425. Her marker is a double marker. Then look at her husbands link. There are 2 Henry Clinton Warners??? I am so confused. What do you think? Thanks! RC

Joel Thompson's wives?
Hi Dennis, I have a question for you. Joel Thompson is my 5th great-grandfather. I have Margaret Smith, 69098141, as his wife. But Mary Mulvin, 69098058, is listed as his wife. Could Mary be Margaret? Thank you, Sherry Paulsen

RE: Opinion on a marker
Thanks for your reply, I will have to let you know when I come back across the stone as it was probably a Crowell-McCray member, which I am finding many of! I guess that's just what happened in small towns :) RC
