Ref: Earl L. Sadler, Memorial 25927861

I have additional information received from his obituary. Would you be willing to add it to his memorial? I can provide it and you could do a cut and paste.

Please let me know. Thank you.

I appreciate the work you do here.
But I would like to remind you kindly, that a person can make a mistake, even when they have been very careful and only have best intentions.

Sincere best wishes.

Ruth Ann Piva
Hello Again,
I feel as if I am almost writing a script when I say that words do not even convey how much it means to me that you responded.
My heart is full knowing that somebody has seen "her."
Knowing her lack of empathy, I suppose others might not feel as I do, but she was the woman who gave birth to me and for that I have loved her. My haif sister passed in 2010 and she was so damaged by our mother's abandonment that she was unable to maintain two marriages because she never wanted children. Here I am giving you the second printing of "War and Peace" and I don't know you.
As you stated money might have been an issue at her death. The family in her younger years was secretive. Her father told all that he came to America from Scotland. I was able to find his WWII Draft documents and he was from Russia.

Ruth Ann Piva
I want to know if any people are alive that knew ths woman?
I was only able to come across this site today after doing a search on
I was born August 3, 1947 in Boston, Mass. to Ruth Elaine Brown. She was my mother and gave me up for up for adoption. She was not married to my father. According to Boston census records she was born in 1922. In searching her Social Security Application Ruth Elaine Brown was listed and Ruth Ann Piva. At birth she named me Deborah Ann Brown. The names of my grandparents were also listed and I might have thought little of it except for the name of my grandmother which was, "Ruth Lillian Alberta Patriquin Brown," which pretty much nailed it for me for its oddity. She married in 1952, and my half-sister was born and named Ruth Ann. When she married she listed only Elaine as her name on the marriage certificate. In 1959 she left husband and child and presumably left for California. Nobody, not parents, nobody, heard from her after that.

Rebbeca Elizabeth Tabor Ledbetter Memorial # 7375524
Hello , My name is Patsy and I am a lover of history and the stories of the past. I was studying my family history when I came upon a story by Silas Claiborne Turnbo -The Turnbo Manuscripts 1844-1925. One story in particular titled "The Taburs Who Were Early Settlers On Big Creek" caught my attention because it shares my family genealogy. I am most certain that Rebecca Elizabeth Tabor Ledbetter;( findagrave memorial #7375524) otherwise known as Betsey is a big part of this story. I thought it to be something that would be amazing to share. I hope you will find the time to read the story and share as a source of information. Thanks for your time, Sincerely,Patsy Lester Memorial #147364400

Hey Bern, our local channel 5 TV is at this cemetery today observing a guy with a radar machine trying to locate unmarked graves. Noticed you had posted some memorials here and thought you might be interested.

Wyanotte County Cemetery
Greetings from California! I hope Florida living agrees with you! My daughter and I were visiting family in Kansas and found the Wyandotte County Cemetery. I want to thank you for all the work you did to enter these people into the Find A Grave database. I cleared the 4 outstanding photo requests. I hope you approve of the photo I posted on the memorials.
I have been working a cemetery close to me in Sacramento, CA, which has had the County Coroner
contract for a number of years. It is gratifying to see family members finally find their missing loved one.
Again, Thank You!

You posted a photo of the grave for Michael Bradish #7871297 and his daughter Mary Agnes. I wondered if you would post the same picture for his mother-in-law Katherine Gorman # 74048690, who is listed at the bottom of the same stone. Thank you so much! -Rebecca

RE: Leavenworth
Hi there, thanks for responding. Absolutely the best thing you could do for Leavenworth National Cemetery is to periodically request photos of graves that don't yet have photos. Each week Find A Grave allows one to make 20 photo requests. Your requests would help the volunteer photographers know which graves still need to be shot. Your thoughts? Mary Ann

RE: Daniel and Annie King
That would be wonderful! Thank you for offering to do that for me. I live in California and so consequently it would be tough for me to do a visual search. Thank you so much!

RE: Mount Washington Cemetery, Missouri
Thanks for the history lesson on this Cemetery. Quite interesting.
It is sad that the current owners are so particular about people visiting the graves of their families. Sounds to me they are not very helpful to those seeking.
There is a Cemetery here that has a map marking each grave and the cemetery location of each. I believe there is another one that offers an on-line location map.
Maybe the owners of Mount Washington should consider something like that to assist the families of those buried at Mount Washington.
At least it appears someone has been able to contribute the graves to this site. Although, that does not make up for those wanting to visit the graves of their loved ones.
Again, thanks for the history.

Mount Washington Cemetery, Missouri
Strangely, I was looking something up I'd just seen on Death Valley Days. I discovered Ranger Burton Mossman is buried at Washington Cemetery and noticed your comment that the stone marker for the cemetery had been destroyed and replaced. I looked it up and, though I could find no history on the cemetery, I did see where the sign has indeed been removed and replaced. Not only that but this particular entrance has been closed and the cemetery is open only for certain days and hours.
There were also a few comments on the site I found, one stated the cemetery is in bad disarray.
Do you know if this has at any time been a public cemetery or always been private? Unfortunately, I know of many cemeteries in awful disarray because there is no one to care for them. It is a real shame for this to happen.
By the way, I agree that the original stone marker at the entrance was magnificent and glad those with folks buried there have your picture as a reminder of that beautiful stone.

Mount Washington
SMG: I was just out at the cemetery, they've removed that beautiful stone sign (picture you posted on Find-A-Grave) at the entrance off Truman Road. They have two ugly signs on either side of the drive now. When will they learn "new" isn't always better. (Sept 2008)

GBern.O: I know SMG, I always liked that majestic stone from way back. Mt Washington certainly has had its share of problems in the recent past. I have an aunt, (loved her dearly), there. Mary F Foster 1920-1976

SMG: Unfortunately, my very first memorial was for a grandson who is buried at Mt Washington. I found this site looking for some way to vent my grief. Mt Washington is such a beautiful's sad they have so many problems. The entrance from Truman Rd, where the stone sign used to be, is permanently closed now. Because of the security issues, the only way in (by car) is past the office. As if. Oh well, the stone lives on via Find A Grave.

Memorial for Robert Osborn
Dear GBern.O,

I just received a note from that you are now sponsoring the memorial for Robert and wanted to send you this note of appreciation for your lovely gesture.

I just reread the obituary and believe that you are perhaps Robert's father. If that is correct, please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your son. I was also wondering if you would like me to transfer management of Robert's memorial to you.

God bless,
