Thank you.

RE: wrong person, wrong parents, wrong family
Thanks! I originally contacted you because yours was the only name other than mine that was there. I didn't have anyone else to contact. I just looked and it seems the erroneous info is now gone. If you took care of it, I do appreciate it!
I just get frustrated with folks who "add" things based on assumptions and not actual research. If the person had only done basic research, they would have recognized their error. I am glad it wasn't you...and wish I could share my remarks with the culprit. Who knows what else they have done to other records! Thanks for letting me know ......and fixing it up. Enjoy your evening! Carol C.

I'd have much more family I would like to link to them (their children, siblings, etc.) in their Bios. Can you please transfer them to me so I can manage their memorials?

Hello again:

Ida is my great grandmother and I'd like to request her memorial be transferred to me.

I was just trying to find out if you knew that this is Muriel B. Dennis, with the maiden name Benson... I don't know much about my Grandfathers family and was trying to find out. I know he had a sister named Muriel who she and her husband began Good News Publishing Co. She would be my mom's aunt, my great aunt... I was hoping to find more info on her and my grandfather's parents, his name is John Benson and he moved with my grandmother, Leona Barstow Benson along with all their children including my mother to southern California in the 50's probably maybe late 40's. Do you know if this is Muriel Benson who married Clyde Dennis?

wrong person, wrong parents, wrong family
Ruth, while it is nice to add things, please take care that you are not making assumptions. You added a grave and info on a Robert W. Bussman to my grandfather's memorial (Lawrence Bussman, NY) that I correctly set up. While he did have a son named Robert, it is NOT the one you have attached. Please remove all info on Robert W. Bussman from my Grandfather's memorial. That is NOT his son.
The one you found is the child of Bernard William Bussman and Catherine Elizabeth Meir. Their son was Robert W. Bussman and his wife was Mary Alice Baer. I have been doing this for years and teach geneology classes. It is best not to make such assumptions and add material to other people's posts unless you have verified it. It would simply involve contacting the person who posted and asking if it is correct. Other people can run with this erroneous info and perpetuate the error. Please remove this info promptly and find the right person to attach it to. Contact me if you need more
Thanks for your prompt attention to this mistake...which we all are prone to make!

Arthur Morley birth year
This is awkward. I was checking his WWI registration and it has the year of his birth 1881. The grave marker is incorrect.

Hi Ruth
I see that you have the pages for Phyllis Milne, James W Milne, Phyllis Milne Tobias and Edger Tobias. Phyllis Milne is my mom and James Milne is my Father. Phyllis Tobias is my sister and Ed is my brother-in-law. I would really appreciate it if you would turn these pages over to me so I could complete them with the pictures and information that I have. Thank you so much for taking pictures of the stones. I love the Fall leaves around Mom's stone!
