RE: wrong person attached
Hi Debbie:

I think I am missing something. Everything seems OK with findagrave. I assume that you mean you're on and the hyper-link goes to the wrong person?

Levi Harvey Steckley (not Steckler) is definitely one of mine in findagrave, but I've never had a membership to Ancestry. If the error originates on the Ancestry website, I don't think I can help you. What has likely happened is somehow an incorrect findagrave memorial # connected the wrong person.

Mary - Find A Grave Memorial #100510412
Levi - Find A Grave Memorial #26147952

As I said, I've never had an Ancestry membership, so am unsure what to do if the error begins there. I have, however, been involved with findagrave since before Ancestry bought them out.

With findagrave, we found a similar error but incorrectly connected kids to the wrong adults. The findagrave originator would not make the correction or relinquish maintenance of the Find A Grave file, so we went to the Find A Grave administrator who fixed things after 30 days. Perhaps something like that could be done here, especially since Ancestry now owns Find A Grave.

I tried a similar search for Mary on FamilySearch, but there's no Find A Grave link there.

If the issue is not like I outlined above, please be more specific, because on Find A Grave I find no issues. I'm happy to do whatever I can to help resolve the problem.

Does this help?

Let me know.

RE: Esther Ella (Brown) Lutz
I found Elizabeth Brown's DOD and burial. She died January 9, 1928 and is buried in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Saginaw, Michigan. Her maiden name was Sparks or Sparkes. She married first Dennis Maher or Mahar, and after his death, married William Brown. Elizabeth was the daughter of Henry Sparkes and Ella Thomford (later married Shuldy after Henry's death).

You should be able to add the photo. I'll remove the one I have.

RE: James Prokopenko
Sorry my mistake, I did find a Prokopenko that I put up. Would you send me your family members memorial number so I can check against what I have.

RE: James Prokopenko
I have not been able to find a James Prokopenko listed anywhere in Findagrave. Also, checked all my personal entries with no luck. Have you spelled his name correctly?

Daman Templeton

I live in Washington State. I will try for an obit for James - Daman. Do you have one? Many times they show nick names or what the person was going by at the time of death. Many changed their names for what ever reason. My family goes back in Momence to 1853, that I have documented so far. If your family stayed we could be related. I am amazed at the many names married into the family over the years. Still have family living there.

Daman shows on page 46 of Momence Protestant Cemetery index. I have found other errors, so this could be too. I will try to do some research and see what I find. He is not my family just on the same page with my family. Anita

Thanks for the tips Debbie. Things have been looking up. I recently busted through a brick wall and found a lot of information.

Thanks again,

Thanks for doing the math. I entered his
birth as Nov. 23, 1781.

I checked out the info about Richard Morford.
I do believe it is correct. If you zoom in
on the stone you can see the left side of the
4. It is not near as heavily carved in the stone.
I also checked the census and it shows he was
born in New Jersey around 1782.
The Mercer County Cemetery books shows his
name and he died in 1874 at the age of 92.
I did have 82 as his age, but, if I zoom in on
it and with microscope I do believe it is 92.
So hopefully it does now show the correct info.
