Lathrop Fish Memorial #34985264

Thank you for providing the memorial for Lathrop Fish! He is my 4th great-grandfather! However, I believe that you've combined two different people into your memorial page. Lathrop G. Fish, who was born in about 1802, died in 1866 in DeKalb County, IL. He is buried at Oakwood Cemetery in DeKalb, IL. He married Lucy Caul. He had a son, also named Lathrop G. Fish, who was born about 1830 in Ohio, whose headstone you have on your memorial page. He married Caroline. He also served in the Civil War and died in 1895.

If you'd like more information about this father and son in order to correct the information on the memorial page, please let me know! Thanks so much!

Thanks for the great photo it proves that the spelling on the memorial is wrong, I need that for proof.....I have already put in a correction to Find A Grave. This Find A Grave volunteer, Glen Glaus, does not update anything, so we have to wait for Find A Grave to automatically do it....drives me crazy!

None to be Forgotten
Hi Tom - deleted those two dups you sent. Just to let you know, I check any records I use against what's already in Find A Grave to AVOID dups but a few years back, not all the memorials would appear when I pulled up the cemetery lists on Find A Grave and so some DID get duplicated. Also a lot of memorials are created using "different" names than the name on the official records so they don't necessarily appear as a duplicate to me. I'm currently entering the entire state of Iowa and it's a real problem down there!Just let me know when you find one and I'm happy to take care of it! - Cindy (None to be Forgotten)

(FYI - I used to live in Winona and then Rollingstone. Am now in St. Charles. I even wrote a book about Winona County Cemeteries!)
