RE: Joseph Branham
He is a very distant relation, not close out all. I was just going through hints and thought I would look up his obits and kids. If this is the father all his kids especially 2 adult sons were doctors, chemist and captain in the usn. There was a son who was like 6 when he died and asked the person who created the memorial to connect him to his parents. I still want to find the obits for the 2 married daughters. The one daughter looks like she was a teacher and never married. I like to give life to people and obits are a good source especially the old ones. I did find a Lt Hugh M. Branham buried in another state memorial but in the obits later he is listed as capt and this memorial has him as a lt. You don't have to transfer him. He married a woman whose brother was my gr-gr-gr-grandfather, I think, getting old I cant remember like I used to, would have to look him up lol will be 51 in October and almost a sr citizen but proud to be a baby boomer lol. Thanks for your kind words and asking to transfer.. Maybe someone closer will want it. I created a memorial for a the father and that is how it started, oh yea so yours must be the son duh, told you sr moment kicked in. Thanks again.

RE: John William Renshaw
John is not one of my Renshaws, but I found his obit and mention of his wife Mary C. Renshaw in my grandmother's papers, (they are in the same cemetery as her mother, Annie Renshaw Magruder) and there's a note that reads "not related." Apparently, I'm not the first to wonder if he and she are related to us, so I tried to add what info I had in hopes of helping someone else.

So I can keep him or send him back to you!

I've seen the headstones and have noticed that both make use of nicknames instead of their actual names but I've made the changes you suggested.

RE: Mary G Maus in Rockville Cem
Maiden name added. I'm so thrilled you are adding photos. None of these are my relations but I always hope that by adding & photographing memorials near me, I'll inspire their relatives across the country to do the same and perhaps they'll find some of mine.

I have changed it to agree with what's on the stone. Thanks for your input. All the best, Dech.

RE: Indian Farm Cemetery - Albertine
Hello Jim.
It helps a lot. I'm now sure on the complete inscription. (except for the poem on the bottom thats too weathered) As you can see I've sent you some edits with the translation of the inscription.
If you have something to translate in the future, just sent me a link.

All the best
