Hello from Barbara Portner Whitbeck
Hi Michael, how are you? I am well and still living in Irvington. I just joined findagrave and you are my first findagrave friend (because you created memorials for the Portners in Manassass). My member number is 48594107.

I am in contact with the family of Carl Strangmann who married Augusta Pornter, sister of Robert Portner.

I am curious as to your progress in finding Valaer graves in Philadelphia. (On the other hand, I suppose I should teach myself to use the tools on findagrave and find out myself.)

Please stay in touch,

Thank you for the update. However, I am unable to correct the bad link as it was done by the owner of the son's memorial. Would you please let them know? Thank you.

I would be a distant cousin of Edith's. She and I are both direct descendants of John and Betty More.

RE: Edith Kingdon Drexel Cram
First of all, I want to tell you that you made a fantastic memorial for Edith! Thank you! You might try writing to the person who created the other memorial, ask for management and if granted, update all the information, and finally deleting yours. If a transfer is denied (it can take up to 30-days), you can write to and ask for the transfer. To the same email address you can request a merge but Find A Grave admin will determine who gets management. I'm still fairly new with Find A Grave and I hope I'm giving you correct information. Good luck to you!

No problem. I added photos to her memorial.

Crow family

I added Alexander's parents and his wife, but he's the Jr and his father Alexander is the Sr., so you might want to change that. Thanks! They are my 2x great grandparents and great grandparents.

RE: Cemetery Information
Howdy Michael -

I changed the website info for Woodlands.

I love that cemetery, btw. Been there many times. Wish I could lead a few tours there.
