RE: William Moore
Obituary said he died in Bakersfield. on file at Ohio Genealogical Society. Please make note in bio if you do not wish to change it. California death record was created after the fact. Obituary created at the time of the death, so I go by the at-death records as opposed to records/indexes created years after the fact. Thank you.

Judith Huot
In Lanphier High school year book 1956, Springfield, IL, is a photo of a Judith Huot born about 1939.

I looked at the two photos one of Judith Purvis and the one of Judith Huot. I cannot say they are the same person. If I had to make a guess I would say they are not the same person.

Judith A Huot
I also searched for a marriage between Judith Huot and Harold K Grubaugh, Of course this could have been a 2nd marriage for Judith. She could have been married to unknown Huot before her marriage to H K Grubaugh.

Listed in Judith A Purvis' obit is a son Clifton Dough Purvis, I found a birth index for a Clifton Doug Purvis born June 02, 1968, Montgomery Co, KY. Mother Glenda M Matney.

Purvis is a very common surname in KY.

Judith Purvis

I could not find any info on Harry C Purvis, Jr., except he was born in Grant, IN. I have found lots of mistakes on Find A Grave and never accept info on Find A Grave unless I have more info to support the info. Even death certificate have incorrect parents listed, incorrect birth dates and place of birth.

Need to find a marriage for Judith listing her parents.

RE: Hattie
He has the name different than mine. I don't think his is correct. We'll see what he does. No big deal, I'm going to leave mine on as is. Thanks for your help.

Hi Thank you for the additional information for her. I only see one memorial for her? My Grandmother was a resident at Katie Jane the day of the fire. She was moved to another building the week before the fire. My Uncles were there on ladders trying to help people out. It just burned so fast. I'm keeping my memorial because I put all of those who died on Find A Grave. What name are the other two using?

Margaret Grubaugh
Please give me something, I don't have any proof that that is her parents.
Thanks Cathy

RE: Henrietta Grubaugh Wright
No problem. I find those discrepancies you have described ie headstone inscriptions vs documentation are too often the case. I agree with your analyses. You're most welcome for the photos.

Yes sir, no marker or headstone. Pictures are of the lot where he is buried. I can remove them if you want, just let me know. Thanks for being a member of find a grave and good to meet you.

It was my pleasure! If you have additional requests at Mountain View, please feel free to contact me.

Hi Dick,

I have also created a page for Herbert Bunting. Are you interested in him as well?


Added by Wanda on Mar 21, 2016 8:17 PM

Grubaugh-Bunting, Musetta M.

Hi Richard,

I have fulfilled your request. Mrs. Bunting's marker is very worn and difficult to read. I will retake the photo with an iPhone tomorrow.

Grubaugh Family
To answer your questions, I get info online and Union cemetery book.

Craft and Marshall are both buried in Sec A, Row 6, Lot 7, with headstones. The last name maybe questionable. Until I find out different I will leave them as they are.

Thanks for you note. Yes, I discovered the same day that I'd duped it and sent all the updated info and the obit to the other creator which appears to not be active, I didn't want to put the obit in a flower note since that is against the rules. I just sent another SAC that including all the info again and am deleting mine. Have a great day.

I just added one that I cropped out of a photo I found on her daughter-in-law's Facebook page.

Can you resubmit your SAC for the Grubaugh husband? Marita's two husbands weren't displying in the proper order, and when I tried to fix the order, I somehow lost his memorial number. Thank you.

Betty Jean Crubaugh
I did move the obituary over to my memorial for Betty Jean Crubaugh in Woodlawn Cemetery, Clinton IL. I cannot delete or even merge memorials. That is something that Find A Grave has to do, but I did send a note to the creator of the other memorial requesting that she delete it. If she does not you need to send a merge request to by sending the links to both memorials.

Find A Grave contributor Richard Holmes has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Alice Grubaugh.

Their suggestion:
Hi Larry,
This memorial is actually a duplicate of memorial Dick, Deleted my memorial and added photo to yours. Getting credit is not important to me. Just trying to help folks with photos. Thanks for letting me know.


for Ann V. Lively Grubaugh. It's a long story, but you can read the bio portion of that memorial to get Ann's life story. The tombstone was unknown at that time, but clearly her first marriage (to ?? Robinson), and possibly her only marriage, is reflected in the tombstone. I'll change my memorial to read Ann V. Robinson Grubaugh with Lively as the maiden name. I'd be glad to transfer memorial #96659844 to you, but you should delete the duplicate. You could add the tombstone photo to #96659844, so that you would get credit for it.
Hope things are going well for you.
Let me know if you have questions,
Dick Holmes
