RE: Newman #56331738 & #56331744
I try not to let things like that upset me, but it did. It is just wrong, wrong, wrong. I've had people take my photos from findagrave and put them on Now if I post my photo on both places, I realize that once it goes on it pretty much is open season and I can deal with that. But it's strictly against Findagrave rules to take a photo from there and use it elsewhere.

I figured the shadows were a dead giveaway that it was your photo.

Then, of course we have the issue that George is not buried at either Bradner (where I'm sure you photograped) or Oak Grove with his first wife Josephine where she used the George & Edna photo. I figured the best way was to leave his record there but let everyone know even though his name is on the marker with Edna he's buried elsewhere and linked the George in Gallia county to at least two of his wives. Such a mess.

Thanks for adding your two bits. Figured since it was your photograph you had the most clout.

Newman #56331738 & #56331744
Take a look at the photo you posted on George & Edna Newman #56331738 & #56331744 at Bradner. I created both records and you posted the photos back in 2012.

Now go take a look at the photos that have been posted by another Findagrave member on HER records for George & his 1st wife #109317489 & 109317472 that she created in 2013 at Oak Grove and tell me what you think?

Josephine and a daughter ARE buried at Oak Grove but I don't think that George ever had any marker with Josephine. I have a book published by the local historical society for Oak Grove and George is not listed. I asked for the photo to be removed and George to be deleted entirely. But wanted to get your take on comparing your photos with the ones the other member posted.

Disregard the edit request to change birth date. I forgot this is the mother/daughter combined stone as I was milling through pic files. Hope you don't mind I loaded another photo. Have a great day!
