misplaced obituary
You left an obituary for Alvin Daniel Willis on Raymond Lee Alleys memorial. You might want to correct this.

RE: Transfer
Hello Art,
Mary Eva Trexler is a daughter to William Trexler. You need to connect her to him. I just posted her obituary on her memorial page. Thanks.

RE: Memorial# 11316202
In 2005 it was not against Find A Grave policy and existing memorials were allowed to stay. You can verify this with any of the Admins.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 93978763
It seems to be a mistake. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I will remove the picture from the memorial. The correct memorial for that photo is 93978565.

Ignatius, John Ignatius, William Trexler
Hello Art,
Please be kind enough to add the following information with my book as your source to your find a grave site. I had the three graves marked of William, Ignatius and John Ignatius Trexler. I have cited my book as the source and most of the information came from Donn Gregory Trexler who has been the tireless researcher in the Trexler Family.
Many Thanks! Laura Hawley-Jarvis

Not a problem. I was glad to do it! And I figure that, at this point, we've interacted through Find A Grave enough to warrant our being Find A Grave friends, haha!

Setser folks
I can't add a link to a daughter. The way links work is that parents have to be linked on the daughter's memorial. Sorry.

P.S. You don't need to own the parents' memorials to do this. Just copy the memorial number and enter it on the daughter's memorial.
