Arthur F. Bigelow
Unfortunately, A Helper deleted his memorial. I asked him if he had saved his photograph of the tombstone, but he hasn't replied yet. I asked him to upload it to your memorial if he still had it because it is a clearer picture.

Could you edit your bio so that it doesn't say "wife of Arthur F. Bigelow" since I linked to your memorial?

Arthur F. Bigelow
I'm sorry to confuse you. You created memorial number 27526841 and I'm guessing that you linked it to memorial number 114854399. I've sent a query to the owner of that memorial, asking him if he is sure of the death date for Arthur F. Bigelow. Both your and A Helper's memorials have the same tombstone but his memorial is for Arthur F. Bigelow, who I don't think is buried there (instead, I think he's buried in Naranja, Florida) while yours is for Anna Ellis Bigelow, who is buried there.

A Helper's memorial has a lot of valuable information on it but I think the death date for Arthur Bigelow is incorrect.

Maybe I don't fully understand how FindAGrave works, but I'd like to clear up this confusion because I think Arthur F. Bigelow married Ann Ellis first and after she died in 1901,he married Lavina Franklin and then the two of them moved to South Florida, where both died and are buried. It is not at all uncommon for the husband and second wife to be buried together, leaving the first wife by herself.

If you can help, I'd appreciate it. I'll send A Helper a more detailed message - I only asked him about the death date for Arthur F. Bigelow.

Thank you for posting the photograph of the gravestone for Benjamin Coburn, Find A Grave Memorial # 36381710. I am trying to decipher the long inscription and wonder if you have a higher resolution copy of the photograph that I could use. Thanks.

Arne E Saari (Memorial # 30347013)

Thank you for all your great work adding memorials to Find A Grave - it is much appreciated! Arne E Saari was my grandfather's brother, and I have some information about his family, if you wish to add it to his memorial. His parents were Emil Saari (# 99328263)and Edla Westerinen Saari (# 99328508). His brother (my grandfather) was Albert Eddie Saari (# 99326366), and they had a sister named Anja who died shortly after birth (# 99328799).

I hope this information is useful to you! I figured you may wish to link Arne to his family.

Again, many thanks for all the effort you've put into your Find A Grave memorials!

Thank you for your work on Find A Grave!! I was pleased to find my Great-grandmother's brother listed. I have some information for you about him. His birthdate was 7 Mar 1892 in Surry, NH.
His mother was Aneliza Richardson daughter of Theodore and Anna Cole Richardson. His father was Wiliam Barney Wilbur, son of Barney and Hannah Cushing Wilbur.
He shares a stone with his Richardson grandparents.
Thanks again!!
