|On the Trail||James S Griswold|
Do you have any additional info about Mr Griswold? I believe I have a photo of him. Do you know if he served in the 131st NY Volunteer Infantry as Captain of Co B?

We have to remember, so many came to America from all aver the world, I try to make it as complete as possible for our foreign visitors can understand as much as possible to locate lost ancestors and kin.
But you're right, many don't give credit, just take it as their own....so to say....even resent it sometimes. But, if they at least post the info, that's OK too....whatagoinado!!
|Jean Williams||Waidelich etc.|
Thank you for the credits Bonnie.

Hello, could you tell me are you related to Juno? Eliz C Worden would me my 2 great aunt.
|RedRose12||RE: Donald G. Barker|
No problem. Thank you for the correction. Now I see that Marilynn Johnson did have a page for him. Can they be merged? Yours is more complete.
|RedRose12||Donald G. Barker/Danby|
On more than one occasion, I looked for my uncle's Find-A-Grave page at Danby Cemetery. I couldn't find one and thought about making one. Tonight I ran across it by accident. His surname is Barker--not Baker. His last name as well as that of his parents and sons should be changed in the obituary. Thank you.
|Steven E. Flowers||Mabie/Gardner marriage|
Thanks, Bonnie. I sent an edit request earlier this week. Hopefully it will be done. I can't figure why the person could not see that Eva was Donald's dad's first wife, & that she died almost 18 years before Donald was born.
|Steven E. Flowers||Mabie marriage|
Thanks, Bonnie. Now if we can just get the manager of Donald Mabie's memorial to unlink him & Eva as husband & wife, the Gardners will be good. Steve.
