Thank you for the heads up. I had been noticing this with some of the requests that I have made recently. However, it seems that some contributors have while others don't.

Thank you for bringing the fact that I have created a duplicate of the Find A Grave Memorial# 6812539
I have sent the message below to the owner of the original Find A Grave memorial. It appears that they may no longer be active Find A Grave members but perhaps with some luck they will respond to the message I sent their way.
This will allow me to correct the situation without the lost of any historical information about this direct ancestor of mine.

I have been informed that I have created a duplicate of this memorial. See Find A Grave Memorial# 64108953
Before I delete mine I would like to request that you consider incorporating the additional information in mine so no historical information is lost about these ancestors of mine.
Please let me know when this is done so I can proceed to correct this problem that I have created.
|Diane Marino||P.S. to last email|
Annie was actually one of nine children to Jacob and Fanny. I'm only asking you to add Annie since I know for sure that she was my great-grandmother and I know for sure that Jacob and Fanny were her parents. I need to do more research to verify the other 6 children and that probably won't happen until after the holidays.
|Diane Marino||Redman child|
Dr. Mr. Donahue,
I am the great-granddaughter of Annie Elnora Redman McCardle. I see you have memorials of her parents, Jacob and Fanny Myers Redman at the Mt. Eden Cemetery. Please add my great-grandmother as their third child on their memorial page. Annie was born 12/28/1867 and died 1/11/1940. She is buried at Birmingham Lafayette Cemetery in West Chester. You may go to my Find-A-Grave page to read about her if you wish.
|Stephanie Myers Landis||Gochenaur|
My guess is that he joined to protect his son John. They joined together for a 9 month tour. They were close to the Maryland border and anti-slavery sentiments ran deep in some 'southern end' families. The bio on his wife is incorrect. Given my history with P. M., I hesitate to contact her. Looking deeper into the Simon Gochenaur in Zion UCC, his application filed in 12 Oct 1890 list him as a private in the 9th regiment, PA Calvary (92nd Volunteers). It also had Invalid application #948776 certificate #1087032 (ancestry.com). I can't find him on the few CW sites I checked. I'm not military. Maybe you could find out more. The 9th Calvary was very well regarded and saw some nasty action.
|Stephanie Myers Landis||Gochnauer, Simon|
There is a neat list of Veterans Burials on-line at the Lancaster County Archives web site. There I found Simon S. Gochanaur was buried in Mount Eden Lutheran. His dates are 1845-1932 wife Anna. He is one of your Find A Grave tombs #107563377. So, the military records on both memorials are correct. Now its just a matter of correcting the family links for the Simon Gochenaur buried in New Providence Menn. Hope I haven't been too much of a headache for you.
|Stephanie Myers Landis||Gochenaur|
It does look like he was an orphan in the 1850 census. However, two sources show the only Simon Gochenaur in New Prov Menn was born in 1814. I thought it odd that an 18 year old enlisted as a corporal. There was a John Gochenaur in the same unit. He was a private. Just curious, as much because of the burial placement with the other Gochenaurs in the cemetery.
