Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE NOTE! With being able to do links now under this great new edit system, PLEASE put ALL of the memorial numbers into ONE EDIT. By sending separate edits for the spouse, mother and father links, right now there's a glitch that will cancel out all but one of them, so only one link will show up on the memorial. AGAIN - only ONE edit for ALL OF THE LINKS YOU WANT ADDED.

Having been a beta tester for the new EDIT system, have nothing but praise for this new feature! Can get through updates in minutes what used to take hours. This new edit feature is also proving to be a huge leap in getting the name fields clean up per the naming conventions found in the FAQs (these are not optional or subject to interpretation):

Memorial Naming Conventions:

If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation.

A period should be used after names where only an initial is known. If the full name is known, use the full name and not the initial.

No other punctuation should be used within any Name Field.

Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used in any Name Field.

Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.

First Name - First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.

Middle Name - Middle name of deceased. Put the entire middle name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.

Nickname - Nickname of deceased, if known; the nickname is automatically placed in quotes.

Maiden Name - Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank); the maiden name is automatically italicized and should only be used if the individual was married and took the spouse's surname as their new surname. If the deceased was never married, then the surname should be placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.

Last Name - Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

Any photos I've added to this site are open for anyone to use, no permission or credit needed.

I strictly adhere to the Find A Grave guidelines regarding transfers. No exceptions. Requests made outside of the guidelines, or do not state relationship, are no longer being acknowledged. Virtual cemeteries are the way to "gather" your ancestors together.

Copy-and-paste census, military and other data is not a "bio". Please don't send these type of bios because they will not be added.

Finally, I will NOT add a link to a burial unknown memorial. This site is named Find a GRAVE for a reason. Not a difficult concept.

Hi. Thanks for the suggested edits regarding Kathryn 2718 Unknown. She is located in a large cemetery that has other unknown (possibly 100+). Please provide her full name and I will gladly correct and if you are a relative then I will gladly transfer.
P.S. the cemetery is a prominent black cemetery

RE: Mary Miller
Thank you for your response. I had reiterated my request for the source/documentation of the posting of Smithley as Mary Miller's maiden name, because without such info it is difficult to trace or verify the error. Please, no offence intended in posing my question. I am fully aware that errors occur in documents. As previously stated, I have requested burial records from Mt. Lebanon. Given that your source was the 1930 listing of burials, the information may still not entirely resolve the question. I can easily imagine that whoever compiled the list you were working from might have been confused by the fact that Mary Miller was buried in a Smithley plot.

At this point in time I believe that the preponderance of evidence indicates that Mary Miller is indeed Mary Vogel Miller, my great grandmother:

1. Because Mary and Ignatz Miller, Willard K Dayton, and all the Smithley's buried at Mt. Lebanon are all buried in Richard C Smithley plots.
2.Because all these burials have matching headstones.
3.Because Ignatz Miller (not a common name)is the husband of Mary Vogel Miller and Willard K Dayton (who share a headstone with George Smithley) is
her son-in-law.
4. Because Mary's DOB correlates with census records (c1846).

I'll let you know what the burial records say, when they arrive. Thank you for your help.

Why are you sending such a rediculous edit ?
If I knew her maiden name I would have put it in.
Are you a decendent?
If you are I would like to hear from you.
