RE: Eliza Gibbard - Pioneer Cemetery
Thanks. I wondered where that went. It is raining here.

Actually, I can add a picture with other tombstones, and an explanatory caption, enough so that you can see her grave and the area. That is what I generally do for unmarked graves. Let me know if you would like that. No trouble.

RE: Amon, Clara

I normally add a plant and mark the burial site for identification purposes.

Hi Christie,

I believe the above to be buried in an unmarked grave, but await confirmation from cemetery staff. I will keep you updated...

Hi Christie,

Good to hear from you. I wanted to see if I had anything more, so went through the records I have but found no further information for Julius Marshall. Added what you sent. Is this the way you want it?

'Note: L to R: George grave 2; James 3; Mary 4; Julius 5. Right of large Marshall stone is Paddleford grave 6, "Backside of large family stone is blank. Smaller stones to the left say Mother and Father, smaller stones to right are all Paddleford" '

RE: Charles Soper

Sorry about that. I deleted the photo from 64261044. Someone has already added a photo to 64376222.


Charles Soper
You entered a photo of a grave on 64261044; however, you need to enter it on a different Charles Soper because the photo you posted was actually the son's grave, that is it belongs on Charles O. Soper.

Note, for some reason there are two memorials for Charles O. Soper. The older of the two needs the grave photo you posted on his father. That one is 64376222.

Look forward to the changes. Thank you.

Oh my dear it's no problem! I certainly do not keep track of who has thanked me and who has not; it is my pleasure to provide this bit of service to others. If you need anything else, just let me know.

William Orlando Bates
Thanks for the heads up. I am not sure why the duplication. He had been a long-time resident of Leeds and died in this town. Could be his grave was moved, or the other is a cenotaph. I know the member who created that memorial works from transcriptions, so for sure those names are in the other cemetery. Sometimes there are more than one marker for an individual. In this town, one man's name is listed on three markers in three cemeteries. Probably best to make a notation of the duplication on my memorial. -Amy

RE: John Maxim #106032236
The birth in the Carver vital records that you
are referring to apply to John Jr., not John Sr.
You are referring to John Sr.'s name as being
spelled as "Muxham" on this birth record, as
the father of John Jr.
Many times you can be sure the spelling was
not dictated to the taker of the information,
the speller of the information wrote the name
as they felt it was spelled. This is only a possibility, you do not know and I do not know
we were not there. The only information that we
can use is the information that is recorded.
I have thousands of hours of research experience,
and I will not change or add a surname to John's
memorial that is not a proven birth name.
If you look back at your original e-mail to me
on Feb. 23, 2016 you wanted me to add "Muxom"
to this memorial because it was the spelling on
John's birth record, but you did not send me
verification of where this birth record was
found. Now you send me a public message asking
me to add "Muxam" as surname and put "Maxim"
in the nickname field.
The FAQ's state under naming conventions:
You want me to go against the naming conventions,
which I will not do.
I also know about primary and secondary informa-
tion. The books that you are referring to are
secondary information, even though the informa-
tion was taken from primary records - there
could be a mistake in the transcription of the
information, which makes the information secondary. On my memorials I give the source which I found the information, this gives the researcher the discretion to use or not use the information.
I hope this settles the dispute you have with
this memorial.
I have added to John Maxim Jr.'s memorial his
birth record, which does have his father's
name as also being spelled "Muxham," and
John Jr.'s name as being spelled "Muxam."

John Maxim #106032236
Hi Cristie:
In response to your edit on the spelling of
John Maxim's name.
A birth record for John was not found by me,
the spelling of his name at birth "Muxom" is
not relevant to my memorial because as mentioned
I did not find his birth record. Also, his
children are listed as they were found in the
vital records "Muxam."
The spelling of John's name is as found on the
Take Care,

RE: Obituary rules
I won't be posting any obituaries so no need to worry about how they are posted. The Administrators at Find A Grave are the ones who notified me about their rules about posting obituaries and I will only take any advice about posting obituaries from them.

Waty Howland
Hi, Christie~
I found a Waty Howland headstone in the Clark Cemetery in Lapeer County. However, I'm not sure it's the one you're after. It's quite old and a bit difficult to read but it looks like she was the wife of a Howland and died March 9, 1850. Would this be one you're interested in? We couldn't find a Waty Warner anywhere, but there are plenty of Howlands.
