RE: Memorial 23914520
Hello Ken,
I have accepted the edit and deleted to photo that was added in error. That is strange. I was involved with the beta testing of the upload and transcribe feature in Find a Grave. The marker photo is for one of two cemeteries I uploaded photos for in Jacksonville, Fl. This is the first time I have seen this happen and I hope it is isolated. Very strange. If you look at the memorial it shows transcribed by and create by. The transcription was by another contributor. Thank you for catching this error. Thank you.

Ken, Thank you so much for taking and posting the photo of the Carroll headstone, and especially for passing along the information that Catherine's husband John is not interred in the cemetery. This fact is greatly appreciated. Thank you again. Judy

Robert Denniger photo request

You are receiving this message because you have submitted a photo request for Robert Denniger. I wanted to let you know that I will be traveling to that area from Dallas during the first week of June and I would be able to get the requested photos for you. I do need some help from you tho. While I am in the Chicago area, I intend to get as many names off the list for Evergreen Cemetery as possible. The list is growing every day and is now at 263 requests! Evergreen Cemetery is near and dear to my heart as I have several of my own family members there. If you would please call the cemetery office and obtain the burial plot locations and send them to me, I will for sure get them for you when I go there in June. If everyone could get me the locations I could really get a lot of requests done but I can't do it alone! The office number for Evergreen Cemetery is 708-422-9051. They will also be able to tell you whether or not there is a headstone. You can leave me a public message with the information, or you may email me at Please be sure to reference the requested names. Thank you!

RE: Benjamin and Josephine Steffy
The records are extremely accurate. The man has taken care of the cemetery himself for over 25 years. The entire cemetery has been walked and mapped out in its entirety. It is one of the best ones I have ever come across that was this accurate. If I can be of any help let me know.

RE: Bragg family
I have a rather extensive collection of info. on the Bragg family. I found a book in a local library several years ago that was published by a lady that I ended up corresponding with for quite some time. She is now deceased but I have two versions of her book "The Descendants of Thomas Bragg, Sr. of Culpepper County, Virginia". Her first book was published in 1982 and the revised one in 1986 after I sent a lot of info. to her. The Bragg's are relatives of both my husband (his great grandmother's maiden name was Bragg) and others married into my family. There are still many descendents of the Bragg's living in my area of Missouri today. Thanks for the help you have provided for the Farmer & Halstead family memorials. Have a nice day, Farm Girl from MO.
