Martin Family
I am researching my line of the Martin family located in the Vanderburgh, IN and have found all the wonderful memorials and photos that you have posted.
Would it be okay if I used copies of your photos on my Ancestry tree? I will always give you the credit and thanks.

Thank you for all the great work and for your time,

Feldman / Montefiore
Uploaded Kolman and Sadie.

There are a handful of Yetta Feldmans at the cemetery. I did about 5 minutes on Ancestry, and picked the one I felt most likely to match the Yetta you were looking for (died 1925). It's just a guess on my part. It's one section over in an old part of Montefiore. The photos are now uploaded

The stone is "soft" (probably sandstone) and very very worn due to the acid rains of the 1950's and '60's. The hebrew side is especially difficult to read. If you need a better shot to make out the lettering, the photograph would need to be taken early in the afternoon when the shadows might make the lettering more visible. Let me know.

RE: More Spear
Howard Hoadley Rogers July 31, 1909 Lynn City of Springfield MA

Massachusetts, Birth Records, 1840-1915 for Howard Hoadley Rogers

Parents are William H Rogers and Bessie M Spear

According to what your husband found that a Howard Rogers died April 8, 1912 then this I would say is him and he was just short of being 3 yrs old.

Do you all agree?

RE: More Spear
It was Dorlisa A Gibbs Rogers and William L Spear who had the infant d aged 2 days. This is according to the:
North America, Family Histories, 1500-2000 for Bessie May Spear

The Sterling Genealogy : volume 2 : William Sterling of Haverhill, Massachusetts

page 942 I believe it looks like or page 912

Bessie May Spear Rogers and William Horace Rogers had a son named Howard Hoadley Rogers (I believe that is his middle name) was born in 1909 but have not been able to find anything to show or prove a death date. I don't remember my grandfather telling me how old he was when he died. He talked about his brothers but it's been so long now it's too hard to remember.

I sent you an email from my email account. I hope you got it. I would like to get to know you all since your husband is family to me. Yeah!

Thank you for all you do here in Find A Grave.

RE: Bessie M Rogers
I sent a request thru Find A Grave for a photo of the family gravestone to be put on Bessie's memorial page along with some further requests. Because of the last name spelling she is not linking up correctly. Please check out my request. Something else I noticed,when you deleted her memorial page it deleted it in ancestry so now the link does not work from there to Find A Grave. It just says the page has been deleted. I have seen where others added a link from the old page which says to click here and it will take you to the new page. Can you add that in Find A Grave? That way the link will take others to her correct memorial page after they click on that link you add in Find A Grave and you correct her last name spelling.

Thank you so much for your time. Oh one other thing, there is no link to her husband's memorial page either with a photo of his gravestone. Please make this correction.

Just a note, on her father's memorial page the spelling of her last name is Rodgers. Can that be corrected please? Thank you very much.

RE: Bessie M Rogers
Could you send me a link to the memorial page? The one I have doesn't show a stone so I must have the wrong one.

Your husband and I are distant cousins then!

Thank you,
