Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a niece of Lloyd "Pete" Herbert Hughes, who was a Medal of Honor Recipient. Researching his life has been an honor and a privilege. Here are his crew members of the "Ole Kickapoo."

The transcription of the grave marker on any memorial is important. Please add them.

I adopted the Bodan Cemetery in Pollok, Angelina County, Texas, USA because of the many relatives of mine who are buried there. About 40% of those buried there are related to me.

You have my permission to use the grave marker photographs I have uploaded in any genealogy project. They are not one-of-a-kind photographs. You certainly do not, however, have my permission to use my photographs of family members in some money making scheme. Don't laugh, it has already been tried - and stopped.

If you have a problem with adding transcriptions of the grave marker, please take it up with Find A Grave. They have a field for it, they ask that you fill it.

That which was lost has been found! My third great grandparents are buried in Kuehn Cemetery which had been mislocated.

I registered on Find A Grave on 9 Jul 2001 when there were "only" 2.5 million memorials. For some reason, I didn't create my first memorial until 29 Jul 2001.

Pendleton family
I just posted your request for Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx. There are two other Pendleton graves beside Alice.

Francis Key Pendleton, son of George & Alice
1850-1930 & on the same stone, Elizabeth Marianita nee La Montagne, DOD 7 Sept 1936.

The other stone is for Sally Pendleton (and an infant daughter), wife of Francis Key Pendleton.

If you want the photos, just put up a request.

RE: Pauline Schoenemann Long
I have that link, now! Thank you!
I'll go ahead and create the memorial as you suggest. I'm just really glad that I have the correct "Travis Long", as that name isn't as uncommon as you might think.

Thanks for your very quick reply!

Did you delete my message in here? I sent it to someone...IDK

As I mentioned in the message whoever got it or if you did, the consensus was that it needs to be searchable.

It is in the bio that she was married twice
The links are there too to the husbands

No reason to add the other name even though it is on the stone. This happens to a lot of stones.

Sometimes they put the maiden name on there only, but her married name is what is on the memorial. I guess in that case there could be chances of duplicating but with Ingling being the last name, that will be what people search for

The end

I shall be adding a note for admin that is how I have it and it should stay that way.

I guess if Admin wants it that way so it cannot be searched than so be it, until then, it stays

Sorry if you don't agree. That's the way the cookie crumbles today. Might change tomorrow in your favor or maybe Mark will come along into the thread on the forum and leave comment on what to do

RE: Are you related to ...
No, I am not related to Ada Compton. I simply walk the cemetery taking photos and then upload them to memorials or create missing memorials. You'll see that I added a note in the bio that her stone is beside a matching stone for R. L. Compton #118075696. I try to leave information this way in hopes that relatives will be able to make the correct connections. I MAY have assumed Ada and R.L. were married and made that link - I don't remember.

I have no idea how Ada was linked as spouse to Floyd F Phillips. I can only guess that it came as an "edit request" and I took someone's word for it and accepted the request. I used to always note who sent me info additions/links request etc in the bio. The new way Find a Grave does this with the edit tab makes it easier to make changes/additions but also makes it harder to note who sent the information.

In short, I don't know where the info came from. If you feel it's in error I believe you can un-link them.

I personally did not make links for Ada's parents either. Perhaps the person who maintains their memorials is the one who has more of her information and requested the link for husband Floyd Phillips.???

Hope you can track this down.

RE: Multiple photos
I am okay with the pictures and I really appreciate all your help with getting the Sherrod memorials to me so that I can share them with our family members.
