Thank you for taking your time and effort to post the photo. Keep up the great work, with out people like you and Find A Grave I would not have found my families memorials. Thanks Vicki

You have a photograph of a stone in Lakeview Cemetery in Houghton County. It only says RICHARDS. I am looking for the grave of my great-great grandmother who was born Grace Bice....married William Richards...who died and then she married William Rapson. William Rapson is in this cemetery however it does not state he was married to Grace. I sent a correction for that with the documentation of their marriage. I was wondering if this stone might be near his grave and that only her previous married name was put on it. Was wondering if you know what graves might be near this one you did.

RE: William T. Ford 19578991
I see you did your detective work! So the location of William (d.4/18/15) Ford's plot is NB63. You can mark that in your records. I don't know when I'll get there again - hopefully during the next month or two. I hope his name is on the headstone.

If you have any questions or requests you can contact me directly. Since I'm working on so many requests you may have to remind me of this communication.

That decision needs to be made by the other contributor and/or Find A Grave. However, it Is confusing when there are multiple memorials. When DAWSON is typed in, you WILL pull up anyone with the name DAWSON and, therefore, the other memorial. That's how I found both. I was researching the mother who is buried in Iowa to locate her spouse & kids following her death. I wanted to attach her Find A Grave number to their grave's. BUT, when you're doing that, and find multiple memorials, you have to take time to find out which is the legimate one so you post it on that one. Then, contact the contributors to notify them of the duplicate, hope one will delete the 2nd to elimitate the problem, etc. That's costly timewise. Duplicates are NOT helpful, as I'm sure you probably know. Therefore, I sincerely hope you will reconsider this decision. There is a 1 memorial rule we must all abide by. Share any info w/ the other contributor, and delete the copy. That's the Find A Grave rule, not mine. Thank you for your work with Find A Grave, which is valued by friends and family seeking to locate their ancestors.

Photo # 38393416
First, I wanted to say thank you so much for your contributions to Find A Grave!!
Second, I know this is probably not possible, but can you please look at the photo for Benjamins and Eliza Monroe and tell me what the smaller stone to the left in the photograph says? I think it says Pollie something Oatley, which would make sense, as that's Eliza's daughter from her first marriage, but when I look in the index for this cemetery it's not coming up, nor is a Poll (y or ie) that works. Can you make out what that smaller stone says?
# 38393416 is the memorial photo I'm looking at. I've saved the photo and zoomed in and still not figuring out what it's indexed under.
Thank you for your time and any assistance you can provide!

RE: Loena M. Vaughn
I did contact her. I have not checked to see whether she did or not. I don't really care except that I do believe that whichever one has the most data, not the date when put up on the site, ought to be the criteria for who stays. Why not offer your better picture, or just put it there and remove your site? It is so confusing to have duplicate sites and whereas Ancestry is now saying that they have 162 M Memorial sites when my estimate is that a good ten percent are duplicates. It makes for sloppy research, IMHO; and is annoying.

RE: Hartmann
You're welcome. Did you need anything from me?

RE: Hartmann
No relation, just doing some research and ran across information from Cemetery burial cards.

Added by Shane on Jun 19, 2017 6:02 PM

This gravestone is a combination of a father, Gustave, and a daughter, Beverly.

Is it possible to have separate memorial numbers for each with Find A Grave? The relationship don't work correctly with other relatives the way it currently is.
Thank you for your efforts.

Actually I have no direct evidence George is buried at the Seattle GAR Cemetery, its just a placeholder until we find out for sure.

Thank you Karen for the extra effort! Maybe something happened to the grave, or maybe a stone was never put there since he was young and his family was so far away? Don't know if anyone will ever know I guess, but thanks again.

Thank you for looking. I am not sure what to say I have the Washington Death Registry which states he died 1905, but possibly it was 1909.
I can't see it being the later date, some things may always be a mystery.

Again thanks for trying

First, thank you for transferring John Rahn to me.

Second, could you please check to see if you have a copy of the marker photos you took for John J Rahn and his mother Kathryn Rahn along with his sister Katherine Rahn Bresnan all at Calvary Cemetery. I would like to use your photos for my family tree giving you credit for the photos.

Thank you again,

I requested at photo for Roy Martin Jr. (1905-1983), memorial # 125991704, but, apparently, you posted a photo of his parents' gravesite. I hope it is not too much trouble to get the photo. Thank you.
