Pvt Louis Sailer memorial, Mount Hope...

Someone has requested a photo of the grave of Pvt Louis Sailer for memorial #68122057 that you created. I live here in Rochester and trying to fulfill the request but I can't find any evidence from the cemetery's online interment records () or a survey of surviving gravestones that he is actually buried here.

I also noticed that there is another memorial for him (#16990263), albeit with a quite different birth date but other details like regiment being the same, at the Andersonville National Cemetery.

Can you tell me what evidence you have that he is buried at Mt Hope Cemetery in Rochester?

John H. Good
Hello there Vince. I'am a ggg grandson of John Harvey Good. About 8 yrs ago I accidentally found a cousin and she hooked me up with all of this information about my dad's side of the family. Much of which I'm sure my dad didn't know anything about. I've found about 7 "ancestors" who fought in the Civil War. So far all for the Union . I'am extremely proud of these findings ! I actually visited Good Cemetery which was called , Teague cemetery at the time. I have pics and notes and all the information I could get from a great aunt. Would love to go back someday and revisit ! Thanks : Chris

Minor Paine

I just saw your notes for Minor Paine. You had his name as "John Minor Paine", and also had his birthday. I was wondering where you found his name as John Minor? I had always had him as only Minor Paine. This might be a clue that I need! He had a brother, John M. Paine, but if he is also a John, I can have something else to look for. He is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery, Madison County, Ohio. Thank you so much!

Pvt. Pleasant Parish
#62159520, John I think I finally found my husband's maternal ggg-grandfather Pvt. Pleasant Parish thanks to you. You also noted his wife Mary was in the same Montpelier Cemetery but w/o Pleasant, so I take it you mean in a different section.
Researching this family is somewhat confusing as there are 3 different Pleasants'.

1. Pvt. Pleasant Parish, wife Mary, hope this is the ggg I have been looking for. Will do more research to confirm if correct by looking at Census, seems I saw something about this guy being born in VA but not too sure.

2. Pleasant Richard Parrish, b.1836* IN, note spelling change, now using 2 r's in the name. wife Mary Ann Richardson b.1836* Had 8 children, Edward Francis, Mary Eliza, Pleasant R., William, Douglas, Christa B., Burton, and George. Pleasant and Mary buried in Fairmount Cem., Davenport

3. Pleasant R. Parrish b. Jan 19,1858 d. Jan. 15, 1924. Served in the Spanish American War, buried at Veterans Home Cemetery, Marshalltown, IA. Wife Mary Mae Brandow 1872-1939, she is buried at Fairmount Cem., Davenport. Had 7 children, Raymond, Maude, Frank P., Erwin, Mildred Eliza, Willie, and Earl Lester. Pleasant later left his family and married Harriet Eleanor Small Lightle. He died 8 months after this marriage. If and when I can make a definite connection with your Parish will let you know and may ask you to transfer him.

Thanks so much for your memorial.

Woodstock Hill Cemetery Woodstock CT
I went to this cemetery yesterday and found your PR for Abigail Aspinwall d 16 Apr 1736, Unfortunately it is under a shrub and very difficult to photograph...but I have the Hale Listings and know it is hers because it is next to Zeruiah Tew d 1770 who is buried on the other side of the shrub. Planting a small shrub was a good idea at the time of death but 250+ years later, it is now a "big" shrub!!
Good luck with your genealogy,

I visited Greenwood Cemetery today. Unfortunately the lot listed on this site for William Atkinson does not have a headstone. The office gave me a map that shows the lot was purchased by Duff C. Atkinson. I posted a few pics of the area. Sorry I couldn't do more.

I can't find any sources on my quick look that suggests this grave belongs to Richard Cole Graves. Can you help me locate your source?

Sirmon Twins
Hello Vince,
I just ran across the photo and memorial for a twin boy and girl, children of R.G. and M.J. Sirmon. The Sirmons were my great grandparents. I was unaware of these children. Do you have more info to share? Did you actually see the stone?

Thanks so much for what you are doing. R.G. Sirmon served in the CW from 1861-1865. Such a sacrifice was made by all the families of that era.

I found some Larsh's but not sure if it is the right one due to the fact that all the headstone says is Larsh. NO dates. So I took pic. of the ones around it. Was wondering if you have any other family names you can throw at me so I can check to see if it is the right one.

Thank you

Alexander Anderson
A few years back you had requested a photo for PVT. Alexander Anderson # 63183017.
You have his memorial in a non-existent cemetery.

I have posted a picture of his military stone. It is in the cemetery where he is buried, "Andover Old Methodist church cemetery".

I am going to have Find A Grave help me in deleting the non-existent cemetery where you have his memorial, so you might consider doing a burial edit to the correct cemetery, at which time I will add the photo to your memorial and then delete the memorial that I created for him.

Thanks for your attention to this matter.

You bio story is fantastic. Love the enthusiasm for charting our history. Me too!

Please be sure you add what you learn to the trees at FamilySearch because they have a free system with a global research collection of sources that can reach more people everywhere.

They have improved their tree pages to give you better information and it finds duplicates that help you improve your source details. Be sure to remove/unmatch any errors that you find when using it. Their system also retrieves Findagrave memorials when doing searches, probably because people like you are making it such a great genealogical site.

Good searching,
John Gavin

James Martin photo request
You are receiving this message because you have submitted a photo request for the above named person(s). I wanted to let you know that I will be traveling to that area from Dallas during the first week of June and I would be able to get the requested photos for you. I do need some help from you tho. While I am in the Chicago area, I intend to get as many names off the list for Evergreen Cemetery as possible. The list is growing every day and is now at 263 requests! Evergreen Cemetery is near and dear to my heart as I have several of my own family members there. If you would please call the cemetery office and obtain the burial plot locations and send them to me, I will for sure get them for you when I go there in June. If everyone could get me the locations I could really get a lot of requests done but I can't do it alone! The office number for Evergreen Cemetery is 708-422-9051. They will also be able to tell you whether or not there is a headstone. You can leave me a public message with the information, or you may email me at Please be sure to reference the requested names. Thank you!

Pvt. Stephen Pace
Hello, I am kindly wondering where you learned that Pvt. Pace is buried in Crooked Creek in Blount Co. Research has found only Sylvester and Sallie Nuchols, 2 small children, and an Indian massacred group. The first 4 are buried next to the old homeplace stood. The group are further out in the field. All that exists now is a cow pasture. As we, hundreds, have worked fruitlessly to extend our ancestors past Sylvester and Sally, we would love to know that Pvt. is from his family! I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you, Tommie Moser Nichols, Powell, TN, Third great-grandaughter

Wrong birth year
Mrs Powers,
My husband is Steve Marine. I saw that you created a memorial page for him. I didn't even know this was here until now. I am his wife and wanted to thank you. Also, I wanted to tell you that he was born in 1962, not 1963. Out of respect and etiquette I thought that the wife was first noted on the obituary when someone passed, followed by their child (Ashton Curtis), then his mother and so forth. I know that his sister put it in the paper as such, but we were the most important people in his life. I would love to see this part edited since you have the power to edit this because you created it. Moreso, I know that Steve would have wanted it that way, no doubt in my mind!! I would greatly appreciate it. further, I added more pictures of us to the page. Thank you very much for your assistance.

ISO My Birth family
Hello. I found this site and the names on here by my DNA being matched to a cousin of mine on He had his Grandpa as Mr Thomas (from his mother's side) in this memorial. I have been searching for my Birth family since I can remember. I don't know why I am creating this message on here. But If my DNA connects the grandson of Thomas then so should I be connected to him in some way. Hopefully one I will find out the connection.

Hello Vince,
I am glad to have come across the family photo you added of my ancestors, Andrew and Lydia Delancy. I am curious to know where and how you obtained the portrait, maybe who from, and hoping you or they can tell me who all are captured in the photo. Oda Mae, their daughter, is the mother of my paternal grandfather's mother. Follow? :)
Looking forward to your reply,
