Two husbands
Hi Val, thanks for transferring my grandfathers memorial (#41462231) to me. I see that you also created a memorial for Alwin French (#41462256), right next to my grandfather.

As it turns out, Alwin's wife, Lillian, purchased those lots. She buried her first husband, Alwin there, then her second husband, Leonard there. I seem to remember her saying that she had one plot saved for herself. If you don't mind, can you please take a look to see if she is there, and maybe even create a memorial?

And if she is there, I would love to see a photo of her marker, along side all her husbands (there may have been a third) I know my grandfather would think it is funny!

"Maggie Cronkright"
I know you dont hafe to be related to do this but are you related in any way to "Maggie Cronkright"? The reason I ask is because when I saw Hayes Cronkright and compared the info to the info in my family tree I realized he was my great great uncle, but when I saw Maggie I was a little disapointed due to the fact that if this is my gg aunt why did they use some nickname? My great great aunt is Margaret Evelyn Earegood and she married Hayes Cronkright.

Samuel Terrel FAG 35294057
Hello Val, My name is Paul Turner, I do research on the 134th NY Infantry Regiment, an ancestor served in the unit. I've created a Virtual Cemetery for the unit.

You created a memorial for Samuel Terrel, #35294057. The text entered identifies him as having served in the 134th. His gravestone photograph does not contain any military service.

I was wondering how you connected him to the 134th?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Thanks for making the corrections. As I'm updating the family trees I'm trying to get Find A Grave to match also. Thanks again. Debbie J.
