Bio and Links
After many years of doing genealogy and searching for information on our great grand father, and with no success; my sister and I decided to research a cemetery in the area close to our home town, where only a few of the internments had been added to "Find A Grave".

It has been very rewarding to be able to find all sorts of information during our search.

We had such a great time together compiling information, I decided that I want to be involved with "Find A Grave". Maybe I can be instrumental in helping someone else find their long lost relative.

Linked to wrong William Linsa Quinn
Would you link Hilda Quinn Smith #81806842 again to mother
and father to #'s 38020402 and 38020354. She was accidentally linked to her grandfather William Linsa Quinn who has the same name. Thank you.

First, thank you for all the work you have done for Find-A-Grave. I know how much time you put into it.
Now, my concern. You list the above memorial for James King, who is the father of my sister-in-law.
Your memorial was dated 11 AUG 2012.
After he was buried in Texas, another individual created a memorial for him in her hometown cemetery, (101912696) dated 8 DEC 2012.
Technically yours is first, and has some valuable information, but does not list a cemetery, hers does, and has a photo of his headstone.
I could just refer this to Find-A-Grave, but wanted your input on this.
Again, thank you for all you do.

I see that you are maintaining the listed. I added another person that is next to your 86567701. I am unsure if I put this person's name right 153167037. Please look over and let me know the right way to list the name.

Ephraim M Beery.

The obit list him with a son, Tommy W. Beery.

For the sake of research please note in your remarks that Thomas Williamson Beery (111442778) is the son of Thomas Jefferson Beery, (brother of Ephraim M Beery) and Elsie Mae 'Lizzie' Williamson Beery (34983583). Elsie died when Thomas was a year old.

Mary Hamamie "Mamie" Gannam Saraf Beecher
Forgot to add this, she was born Hamamie Ganim and the name was Americanized to Mary Gannam.

Mary Hamamie "Mamie" Gannam Saraf Beecher
Your listing for my grandmother is incorrect. She was born in Manchester, Hillsborough, New Hampshire where her parents settled after arriving from Syria. All of her brothers were born there as well before the family relocated to Savannah in the 1920s.

Wrong Cemetery
The following memorial you created lists the correct cemetery where this lady is buried in the obit you made. The cemetery you have her in is in Chesterfield County not St. Helena Island. Please move the memorial to the correct cemetery. Thank you for your help with this.
