RE: Lizzie Brophy Watson #102841185
I found the info on the memorial from this link: http://www.crawfordcountykansas.org/cco.nsf/deptpages/County-Clerk~Tombstone-Transcription-Datebase
It will be listed under Mt. Olive. Hope that helps. If I made an error, and there isn't a middle initial, please let me know and I'll make the appropriate changes.

I do not have an ancestery account. If you could provide any information as to the dates of marriages and spouces names and dates of birth I will try to creat links. My grand father was Anton Vrchota. (Georgia's third spouce) His father was also Anton Vrchota. But I have not been able to find the mother of my grandfather. I only know that her name was Jose and she was very young compared to My great Grand father. If you happen to have any old pictures of Anton Vrchota with his Family I would be very interested.
Thank You

RE: Bishop Albert Gregory
I have a lot of missing family burials in Wayne County. There is no clear information on Albert and many of the Maxeys except what is on Ancestry.com

RE: Brophy graves

Coleen,

"These are my g-g-grandparents and I have the info from their family bible so I believe my information is more correct than rootsweb."

Many family Bibles aren't very good sources of reliable information. I prefer my information from as many sources as possible. Then put them all together and see if they seem to agree.

Yes, rootsweb and ancestry family trees can be full of mistakes, but I don't know of any source that is perfect.

We all for whatever reasons make mistakes. We make typos, some people don't even try to correct them. We can't read the writing or the person giving the information wasn't knowledgable, and sometimes even if they were, the person putting the information onto the forms, couldn't read, spell or write. Census records are a prime example of that.

Another example is my unusual name of Orlena, check what you and others have called me. Until the computer age forced me, I went by my middle name of Marie, and still do in person.

Find A grave has many mistakes that are accidentally made, like linking to the wrong parents. Sometimes they get corrected and sometimes they don't.

Family Bibles need to be checked and understood. I have one that much of the information is older that the Bible. Most of it is close, but it doesn't always agree with other certified sources either. It's also very hard to read and can be easily read wrong.

Depending on the education and quality of their transcribing info received from others there can be problems. The correctness of the spelling and dates of the births, marriages, divorces, and deaths received from others can be off quite a bit, so the person entering info into the Bible, or records can be off through no fault of theirs.

I know one member on F.A.G. who has entered most of the interments in a family cemetery from her family's Bible. She makes no effort to conform unusual spellings and dates with obituaries or the tombstones with the more educated, or usual spelling the deceased used.

When I encounter an error, for example in an obituary or family tree, I leave the error and add my correction. This way, people can judge for themselves who is right, and who is wrong.

I did add the Brophy information, such as it was to F.A.G., but the tombstone photos were added by: Mary Parmele. She did a lot of work in cemeteries.

RE: Brophy graves

You're correct. I've gotten a bit bogged down.

I do intend to transfer them. I don't think since I only got your 2 emails Thursday September the 20th and this is the 23rd that I have taken an overly long time. The suggested wait time is 30 days. ;-)

I believe, I did make the link you requested. I remember now.

I had a problem with a woman 72 having a baby. Especially since her husband was a long time gone.

Michael Brophy (1863 - 1914)

Spouse:
Mary Agnes Moudy Brophy (1868 - 1942)*

Children:
Francis Lee Brophy (1887 - 1955)*
Ida Ellen Brophy Rose (1889 - 1980)*
Clarence M Brophy (1897 - 1914)*
Walter Riley Brophy (1906 - 1971)*
Barbara Ruth Brophy (1940 - 1940)*

I wasn't able to check it out, and didn't have the time to work on it right now.

The link to ancestry was not any good to me, because I'm not a member. I appreciate you offering to send me the info to be added also.

I've been busy, and it's not unusual to get a few emails behind. I spend a lot of time on Find A Grave. I try not to do anything that adds more mistakes to need correcting.

Please check your information for me.

I see you are a newby.

I suggest you slow down and get used to the site and some of the guidelines.

Have you noticed this, I suggest you read it. I don't always agree with everything, but we still need to check it as it keeps changing.

Q & A
You've got questions...We've got answers (we hope!). Please check out our Frequently Asked Questions for answers to the most common questions.

www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=listFaqs

What if I suggest a correction and the contributor doesn't respond?

Have patience.

Many contributors receive hundreds of corrections every month and it may take a while for your correction to be processed. Also, not every Find A Grave contributor is active on a daily basis on the site.

If you have suggested a correction and waited longer than thirty days for it to be processed or if you have found a contributor who you believe to be permanently inactive, please send the correction to edit@findagrave.com and we will edit the memorial on their behalf.

I and other members are wondering if anyone actually reads our profiles before posting comments on them. That's why we put our preferences there.

I'm assuming you may not have used a SAC yet. That is the best way to contact us about our memorials unless the member requests otherwise.

If you don't know about SAC's, or how to do them email me.

Thank you for becoming a member of Find A Grave.
