|Lewis Clark||RE: John Curtis 1710 to 1800|
Good Morning Bill,
Thank you kindly for your message. I do understand what you have explained about the rules and I hope the creator of the earlier site for subject memorial will get back to me sometime. In her case I was particularly puzzled, because it is the only memorial she created in this state and she has none other with a Curtis connection. It is really a fluke and I hope she will transfer it without too much fuss. Time will tell.
On my father's side recently I have found numerous additional generations and the memorial creators have been very helpful. F-A-G is a great resource and, of course, provides an interesting hobby. My main gap now is in Rockland & Thomaston, ME, the area of my paternal grandmother. I will have to travel there soon to poke around a bit more. Last July I lost most of my eyesight, due to an auto-immune disorder, which makes communicating harder.

I have consolidated the records you transferred to me, eliminating most of the duplication. However, there remains the subject memorial for which an earlier version (memorial no. 45491891) exists created by Cindy Allen Bertino on 12/16/2009. This is strange, because it is the only Curtis in her vast records and appears to be the only one in MA. The sole link to Hulda Curtis Shattuck (unknown to us) was added in January 2013 by another contributor, who has been giving me a hard time. The photos on the memorial were added by you, prior to my beginning to use Find-A-Grave as a resource. If I could get this memorial in my name (I sent a message to the creator without reply thus far), this would make a full 8 generations documented in my Mother's Curtis line. Only 3 remain to be found, which would take me to the first Curtis who arrived in 1635. Any idea why Cindy has possession of this memorial?

Thank you very much for your help and understanding. It is most appreciated. Since you seem to know your way around the web site very well, I may have to ask you a question or two as I consolidate the memorials.

Thank you for your note. Would you be willing to transfer custodianship of the memorials for Hephzibah, Lieut. John and Lydia Keith Curtis to my name? This would be the first step to eliminating duplicates, which issue arose in January 2013 with the addition of Hulda Curtis Shattuck by a "wholesale" contributor. Given that my Mother and I are direct descendents of Lieut. John & Lydia, I am loathe to destroy the 8 generation records of our Curtis lineage under my management on Find-A-Grave. I hope you will understand my concern. I would retain all of your entry details and consolidate with any additional information from my entries on the web site.

I hope this finds you well and enjoying this beautuful (dry for a change) New England day!
I was asked by one of the MAJOR Find-A-Grave contributors to remove my memorial for my 5 times great-grandmother, Hephzibah (Hale) Curtis, because yours was placed earlier. Since mine is tied to the following generations in my Curtis line, I would not like to remove it. Would you mind very much removing your version? I could make whatever changes to mine that you think would be appropriate.
I am still searching in vain for the grave of Chester Curtis (father of John Edwin Curtis). He is the one who died in Southbridge, where another son, Dr. Lucian Willis Curtis, was living. This remains a mystery. Of course, there has been a lot of wanton vandalism at the cemetery in Dudley, which may account for his missing headstone.
Thank you for your help.

Sorry for the delay in thanking you for the Aldrich gravestone photo. I have been traveling and have just returned to the States. I appreciate your taking the time to shoot this for me and the other users of Find A Grave. Thanks, David
