RE: Done
Sorry, I guess I should have reiterated what I wanted. You can transfer those if you like then I can take care of it myself. Mom and I got finished with her genealogy and had started my dad's (he passed away in 1985) but we only got a few generations back so I am continuing. Yesterday I found some my dad's grandparents, but the link for the person who monitors my great grandfather gives me an error message. When I tried the other link for the person who created the site he sent me a kind of rude message and told me to try the other link. So, I sent a message to edit@findagrave.com explaining what happened. Since I am new, could you tell me if that is what I should have done and is that all I need to do?

RE: Done
Hi, Paul,
I never got back to you about the Griesingers as shortly after we corresponded last Mom got very bad and she passed away on April 22. We did get to keep her here the whole time and it was actually very special even though painful and I would do it again if I had to. I have had some trouble of my own since but I think I am on the mend and am back to genealogy. I even went to a seminar in Indianapolis this month!

Anyway Ruth's Memorial# is 101348444
I so very much appreciate all that all of you do on Find A Grave and your compassion.

Pamela Suddarth Request
I want to give you more of a reason why I'm reporting a problem with her request. I don't believe she is even deceased. The person that made this memorial just read off the transcript of the cemetery. It shows she is the purchaser of the plots in 1991 for their daughter. And then sadly for him in 1998. I've internet searched her, and found several hits that is her. I'm almost positive she is still alive. Of course I'm glad to tell you this. Also I did search for her to be sure. And I only found her husband and daughter. We are photographing this cemetery so I will have walk the whole thing. For once I'm not sorry to give info on a request problem.
Thank you,
Kristy
PS, here's the link to the transcript;

I don't need to see the census. I've put a note in the bio section about the obituary and the census. Thanks for the info!

Perry Griffith
Thank you for the SACs for the Griffiths in Fairlawn Burial Park Hutchinson, KS. Perry's obituary indicates he was born in Arkansas. Do you have any documentation to support a birthplace of Missouri?

RE: Mary Boese memorial in Mennonite Cemetery
Hi Paul -

What a small world!! Grand Forks was part of our early years "stomping" grounds. We both attended UND And being ND natives we have spend a fair amount of time in the Minot area. When our children were small and we visited grandparents in NE ND, we often stopped at the Zoo in Minot for a diversion for the kids.

We're in Beach in SW ND - very near the MT border. Both me and my roommate of 45 plus years were born and grew up in ND in the NE part of the state along the Canada, MN border. So we have lived in both edges of ND. Kind of like this SW part better as usually the temp is more moderate and less humidity (USUALLY).

Kind regards,
judy ::)

RE: Mary Boese memorial in Mennonite Cemetery
Paul,

Laughed out loud in pure delight over your answer to my rhetorical question. You do have the gift of words!

I don't live close enough (live in ND) to be able to do a quick trip to take photos of their markers so I have transferred the memorials of Henry and Maria (Mary) Boese/Boes to your care. If you find anything else interesting you can just add or rearrange the information any way you think is the most meaningful to anyone who may be looking for them. You certainly have done a thorough look into their family.

Stay cool! Not a problem here - 29 degrees this am. First killing frost and, I may add, a tad bit early for my taste!

Best wishes,
judy aka High Plains :)

RE: Mary Boese memorial in Mennonite Cemetery
Hi,

Are you related to the Boes/Boese?

I don't know where the graves are located in relation to each other. Maybe you could request photos of their markers and ask if the markers are located next to each other.

I don't know how to proceed - I think you are probably right, but I don't want to change the date of birth on the memorial on Find a Grave as the marker shows such a different date. I could put the explanation in the bio.

And why are the husband and wife's markers last name spelled differently? Rhetorical question. Even though there are several ways to spell the name usually the husband and wife use the same spelling for the last name.

Let me know what you think, please.

Best wishes,
High Plains :)
