Morris Hasson
Hello Lori, I am researching the Hasson family. My husband's parents had a foster son name Ralph Hasson. His father was Morris (Maurice). I see you have created memorial for a number of Hasson family members in the Los Angeles area. Are you related to them? Do you have any other info on this family? Do you know anything about Morris's wife Isabel or their children?
I have a lot of info about Morris's descendants from his son Ralph. Paula

RE: Thomas Lillico
No problem - I am only related to one person at that cemetery. I just thought I could help others searching for family by posting pictures of the other memorials there. Would definitely rather have family take care of the memorials. Glad I could help! Take care.

Was the infant daughter of Joseph and Rebecca Story (Joseph's first wife). Joseph was married atleast twice. His second marriage was to Mary (Polly Ann Hays). From census records Joseph and Mary also had a daughter, Rebecca, she may be the one you are looking for.

Here is what Find a grave states in their Question and Answer page.
Why are there multiple memorials for the same individual? How does Find A Grave handle duplicate memorials?
Because so many people add data to Find A Grave, there are often duplicate cemeteries and duplicate memorials added. This is a very common situation and is quite difficult to resolve in a way that keeps everyone happy. Before adding a memorial, you should search the cemetery to see if a record with that name has already been added. If you are adding a memorial for someone who does not have a physical grave or memorial marker in a cemetery (perhaps their ashes were scattered), please do a general search on Find A Grave (do not enter a location) to see if a memorial has already been created for that person. If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. You should never deliberately create a duplicate memorial. In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location. If a case of duplicate memorials falls to the Administration, the Administration will have the final word on which memorial is deleted and which data will be retained in the remaining memorial page. There are some situations where an individual (usually a 'famous' individual) may have more than one memorial page, because their body was buried in one location but a cenotaph or second marker/memorial was also placed in a second location. NOTE Jan 25, 2013: If there are two memorial pages for the same individual, and one has a Lost at Sea designation, and the other gives the location of a cenotaph or memorial marker, the memorial page with the Lost at Sea location may be merged into the memorial page with a physical cenotaph stone or memorial location. [Top]

Here is what Find A Grave state in their rules.

Mine was the one in the correct burial location. As you know because you moved yours there, and because it was not there in April of 2014 when I created Bennett Cemetery. Because it was transfer to you from a virtual cemetery with a unknown burial.

Bennett Cemetery is a work of love being done by a lot of ancestors, you should be grateful the locations has been found after all these years.

The Anne Bennett you want me to delete, you created.

Lori, I created the virtual cemeteries when I first started on Find A Grave. I did not know that others could assume them. I am probably going to delete all of my virtual cemeteries to prevent this from happening in the future. Thanks for the update on his and Anne's memorials.
Just let me know anytime you need a transfer or if I can help in any other way. I'm more interested in accurate information being available on one memorial than I am with gathering as many memorials as possible.
The one exception, I do try to keep my direct line if I entered them first.
Good luck with the research and contact me anytime I can be of assistance. Linda
