I sent you an edit for his mother to be added. I wonder if you would like to change his name to real name, or perhaps add a short bio to indicate his birth name and where the name on stone came from. That would be of help to later researchers. Best wishes, Marge

Many thanks for braving the cold to get the picture of the inscription for Elizabeth Harvey. Thanks very much for the picture but you can keep the cold.:)

|grandmacarol||pearl watson, salt fork|
You added a photo to the memorial for Pearl Watson in Salt Fork Cemetery, memorial # 100936646. Unfortunately, that stone is for the other Pearl Watson buried in that cemetery...memorial #100936513. So I'd like you to remove it from the incorrect memorial. You can move it to the correct one if you wish. (Why do they allow two people with the same name in the same cemetery! lol So confusing!)
thanks a bunch!
|LaurieSue Wentz||RE: Permission to copy photo?|
Thank you very much! Granddad will be so very grateful also. I do know that I am related to Emma, Franklin (Franke) and Eddie Kelley. There was also another child buried there but I see no memorial for him. His name was Henry. All three died as infants. I descend from James and Catherine (Stewart) Kelley/Kelly, who went to Ohio from Kentucky (from Virginia). Still not sure how we ended up in Missouri! Somewhere in this mess that I call my genealogy mountain is a list of all the burials of Salem Christian Church. I will find it and share with all who are interested. It was given to me about 20 years ago by my Great-Aunt Irene. She recorded the names and dates on a visit to her parents graves.
|LaurieSue Wentz||Permission to copy photo?|
Hello, I seen that you took the photograph for Memorial #114206719. Emma Kelley is my great-great grandmother. My grandfather (her great-grandson) is still alive but does not use the internet and I know he would love to see the photo of her grave. It would be used for personal use only.
|Kendel Culbertson||RE: Drucilla H. Culbertson (27961230)|
Thank for bringing this to my attention. The stone is in bad shape and I just looked at it wrong.
I am related to the Culbertson family of Scott Co., VA. Charles and Nancy Kilgore Culbertson were my ancestors.
I have been researching the Culbertson family for over 30 years and would appreciate any information you would be willing to share. Like wise if you need anything, let me know.
You can contact me direct at: firstname.lastname@example.org

|Cynthia Farmer-Nold||Salem and similar cemetery confusion - fix forum|
There is a "cemetery fix" forum, but when I first tried to use it, I didn't get it right. Another experienced Find A Graver emailed me with better instructions. I'll review my saved emails some time and forward those instructions to you. Meanwhile, you can look at the cemetery fix forum to see where it is and how it works. Simply looking at how others are presenting information may be all you need to learn.
I was told to use the forum moderated by Mark. Click on the "Discussion Forum" link on the Find A Grave Actions menu at top left of any page to have a look. It's two spaces above "log in."
If you can figure out who first put a cemetery on Find A Grave, that person has the power to change the cemetery page. Sometimes people put a cemetery on without knowing where it is. That usually doesn't work well, but on occasion, it does. I have added burials from death certificates to a post Civil War African American cemetery southwest of Miami, MO named Pinnacle Gap. It has never been recorded on a plat map. I'm working on figuring out location since there is an old, no longer used African American cemetery in the general area, but not where histories place it. When I do get it figured out, I believe the person who first listed the cemetery will put on location information when I send it to her. On Salem Christian Church Cemetery, I figured out that Martin Tichenor put the cemetery on line from looking through memorial page dates, and there were only a small number to look through. I asked Tichenor to add Township, Range, Section information that correlates with plat maps and surveys. That helps because plat maps are still used, and Saline County's latest one shows roads well. Many of the old cemeteries are on early plat maps like the 1876 and 1896 maps that can be found on line. (Try a search for: Saline County Missouri plat). I also really like good driving directions, but if roads change, the survey/plat information won't change.
I have been impressed with Find A Gravers in some other counties in other states for how well they document cemetery location. If we lose the location, we can lose the cemetery entirely. That kind of thing happening to a cemetery in Ray County where I have ancestors is why I started Find A Graving last year. It took months to get the cemetery location listed right after someone listed it as at county seat Richmond. Search for Remley Cemetery in Ray County, MO to see. Another too common problem is that people often list a cemetery with the name of a county seat town instead of a closer place name or town. That may be a trend caused by closing rural posts offices with Google maps seeming to honor the towns with post offices.
|Cynthia Farmer-Nold||Same name cemeteries and confusion|
I see you are working on the Salem cemetery confusion. Several cemeteries with similar names can cause misplaced memorial pages. Another problem that arises sometimes is one cemetery that has had several names over time. One thing that could help memorial page makers in finding the right cemetery is more location and history information on the cemetery page.
