Thank you!
Hi Dorothy,

I happened upon this site while looking for my uncle's grave location at the National Cemetery in Bourne. To my surprise two William D. Spooner's came up, one of them was his brother Robert, my dad. I was utterly shocked when a picture of him came up. It looks as though it is a high school graduation picture but I've never seen it before. I'm not sure how you know them, but I just wanted to say thank you for your time and efforts in adding them both to this site. I also noticed you thanked them for their service. How very thoughtful and caring of you to take the time to do that. It is truly appreciated.

Take care,
Kelly Byrne
Weymouth, MA

ps. I did request an edit to correct the name and add birthdate :-)

I'm so sorry for your loss, and my intrusion at this difficult time.

At the present time I am unable to take over the ownership. If you can, just leave the info. I sent on the site for others. And hopefully in the near future, someone who can dedicate the proper time and attention will step forward and take ownership.

I'll be thinking of your family during the upcoming holidays.

PS If no one is interested in keeping the info she gathered, and/or she hasn't made any stipulations for it, please don't throw it out, donate it to the local genealogical/historical society.

This is shown as Freeman Kennedy Reed with wife Martha Kennedy. However, Freeman Kennedy Reed is the son of Freeman Reed and Martha Frances Kennedy. It appears the dates are correct and just the name is wrong.

I removed my memorial and added a picture of his stone marker to this one. Thank You for letting me know my memorial was a duplicate.

RE: Harley James Spurling #118067914
No problem; when I get a transfer request, I don't mind obliging when there is a close family relationship involved... even if it is a bit outside of the FG policy. I would rather see memorials maintained by family members when possible.

Good luck tying up all the family!

Would be happy to consider a transfer; what is your relationship to Harley?

Hi, I have transferred the Gutro's you requested. Delia was my gr. grandmother's sister, but I don't feel the need to keep her family if you have an interest in them.
