RE: Lt. Edward Marshall in Laurel Hill
Yes- he is a cousin and I have an uncle (James Marshall) who is 87 years old and more closely related than I am. I'm finding these people for him.

John Cantius Garand
I've been in touch with Mr. Garand's great niece and located his grave today at Hillcrest Park Cemetery for her. I've added photos of the flat marker and the dedicated bench in honor of this great inventor of the M1 Rifle. John was born in St. Remi, Quebec, Canada and died in Springfield, Hampden, MA. USA, husband of Nellie R. (maiden name unknown) Garand.
According to the WWII Draft Registration Cards for Apr. 26, 1942, John was 5 ft 7 in. 157 lbs. He & Nellie left two children, Richard M. and Janice K. Garand.
Last Residence was 25 Wilton St., Springfield, MA 01109.

My sincere thanks for you help in aiding me to have the Hargrave (Hargraves) Cemetery updated. There are still a few things to work out and I am wondering if there is any one person to contact. The original creator is deceased and I would like to maintain the memorials that they created and I would also like to tweak my edit for the descrption.

I am seeking your help due to your interest in Civil War memorials and of course, your Chuck Taylors! :)

Your help is appreciated!

Famous Graves With Unknown Burial
I've noticed many famous graves in the 2014 yearly necrologies have Unknown for the final resting place. How can this be allowed isn't the point of "Find a Grave" to locate their grave or find out if they have been cremated ? I think it's unacceptable and you shouldn't allow people to post famous memorials unless they have all the facts.. Just my opinion...

Hi Russ

You have a typo in the death of George Dickson, #11048952, in Bordentown Cemetery. You say he died in 1932, it was actually 1902. His obit is in the Bordentown Register.

Thank you for all your work

Wayne Hamm/Inactive Member
I'm not sure if there is a way for Find A Grave to take over the memorials that Wayne Hamm has created. He has not been active for a long time and I have been having to go through the editor at Find a Grave to get corrections made to the memorials he has messed up which is very time consuming and sometimes impossible. It seems he just added from obits. and didn't put birth dates. Getting connections added for family memebers has been difficult. Any help you can give on that?

Capatin Dorastus B. Logan - bio notes
Dear Mr. Dodge,
Would you please edit the bio section a bit to revise that the cenotaph is in the First Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Succasunna, and not in the First Presbyterian Churchyard, Morristown, New Jersey, as is currently in the DBL bio writeup.

Note that I propose this edit, however, based on this [ ] cemetery listing and this F-a-G memorial [ ], not from personal firsthand knowledge.

If I'm incorrect in trying to sort this out for Capt. Logan, please feel free to revise accordingly, but I would ask that this slight inconsistency between Mr. Macnamara's memorial and these (your) DBL bio note gets resolved.

Thanks for Capt. Logan's memorial!! and for all your Find-a-Grave work !
Yours, Jeff Bryant
