Michael Patrick O'Connor
M.P.O'Connor's mother was Mary Agnes Lake from Beaufort, SC, born June 21, 1805, d. Oct. 20, 1882.She is buried with her husband, Michael O'Connor under white marble obelisk in St.Peter's Historic Church on Carteret St., Beaufort, SC. Monument is believed to have been carved by famous Charleston, SC stonecutter, W.T. White Her father was John or William Lake. They were farmers. Wondering if the Lake Co. in Ill. might be related descendants?

Memorial for Charles G. Sterett
There are duplicate memorials for Charles G Sterett. One created by you and another, created last year, memorial 131011939. It appears that the latest memorial is the accurate memorial. Would you please review the two memorials and if you find memorial 131011939 to be accurate would you please delete yours to minimize any confusion.

Virginia Gibson

I did some more research and found that Virginia is buried in the Antigo Cemetery in Antigo, Langdale County, Wis. Her husband, Lawrence and her son, Richard are also buried in the Antigo Cemetery as well as her parents, John and Hazel Keen. I hope I'm not bothering you, but would you delete Mrs. Gibson from the Treasure City Cemetery. The Treasure City Cemetery is defunct and was mostly used when the town was in it's prime 1868-1879, the last burial was in 1909. Treasure City is now a ghost town in White Pine County, Nevada and only a few ruins remain. Thank you for your time.

I believe you are related to my husband Robert Girvin whose grandmother was Katie Amanda WAGER Girvin from Carson City, MI. Her mother was a Shinabarger. Love finding "new" relatives.

Thank for Honoring a WW2 Vet
Though it has been about 8 years, you - a complete stranger - has posted flowers to my close relative (G. Dax in Avoca, WI), I thank you.
Though he has living relatives - some which are grandchildren and great and great great grand children who have computers and know Find A Grave, they have never posted a memorial or a flower for their kinfolk. It is so sad.

Thanks again.

Thank you for visiting my grandfather, AJ Bogdanove and leaving a token on what would have been his 126th or 128th birthday, depending on what record can be believed!
