RE: Archibald Russell Mount
Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you, I think we just had a little misunderstanding. The FindAGrave system makes one choose from 6 predetermined reasons when declining an edit request. In this case none of the available reasons was a good fit. I chose one, then tried to explain in the comments field, but perhaps my explanation was too brief. Anyway, I didn't intend to suggest that the "Archibald" name is incorrect. Rather, I just believe using that name is not the best way to index the memorial. "Archibald" doesn't appear on the grave stone (or in his obituary, or on his death certificate, or in any other adult records I've found). Clearly he was known simply as "Russell Mount" when he died, and that's the most likely name someone would be searching for, so it makes more sense to index it that way in FindAGrave. (If the site were "FindABirthCertificate", I would index the name differently.) Note that "Archibald" is mentioned in the memorial's bio.

I'm curious to know Carolyn's exact relation to Russell. He is my grandmother's first cousin. I'm not sure if I ever met him, but my mom remembers him, and of course my grandmother knew him well. Could it be that the Grove is more closely connected than the Mount? :)

All the best,

Thank you for the obituary. It has been added to his bio. Would you be kind enough to remove the obit you have placed in the flower section? Thanks! (Memorial #46563375)

I generally do not include recent death lines for privacy concerns. Some of the people mentioned may have had no say in being so named/connected. Since you asked I will put up a part of the obituary for Martha.

Hi David, Your memorial 54892832 is the same as 108444036 even though they have wrong date of death listed as well as his first name which is Fredrich....
A good friend of mine is an Ostien and I'm trying to tie all his family members together on find-a-grave....
Maybe you should remove yours and I will send an edit to the other folks with the correct info...
They have a lot of info on other family members listed on their site

Hello. I just fulfilled your request for a photo of Clarabell Planks stone at Highland. Sorry your request wen unfulfilled for soooo long. Back several years ago, volunteers came out of the woodwork but then they found it was a lot of work sometimes to keep up with the large number of requests. I reappeared on the scene and have fulfilled those I can find now. Hope you are pleased with the pictures. If not, please contact me and I shall endeavor to do better. Arizona Kid (46523020)

I went and transferred Gregory and Winifred to you. I also have Cronin's in my tree (but not connections that I know of to these Cronin's). However some of my Cronin ancestors that lived in Westchester, NY and Conn (among other places) I have not been able to trace accurately and/or find out their birth and death dates.

RE: Shirley Mellor Brooks and Maureen Mellor


Several years ago I created a memorial for everyone interred at Mother Teresa.

I went back now and read every wall and do not find Catherine Mellor there. Sorry.

Shirley and Maureen are on the same wall, in the same column, with two other people between them.

This columbarium in the beautiful foothills is very peaceful, with a bubbling fountain and a quiet nook with a bench, in addition to the interment area.

Have an awesome day,

RE: Mount Family
David, I have a newspaper account of birthday party for two of Magdalene's younger sisters in 1880. If you like a copy please send an E Mail address. Also, do you know the location of the Mount School in what is now Vernon Twp, Crawford Co., PA? I have still to locate the graves of Pierre and Catherine (Dum) Chavian.

Mount Family
I'm looking for the grave of a GGG-Aunt and her husband and descendants to add to the family Tree. Magdalene/ Martha (Genin/Javin/Shevian) Mount (b 1798 Berks Co., PA) and her husband, Peter Mount who were married in Crawford Co., PA and moved to Muskingum Co., OH about 1820 with the Mount family.

Magdalene was the daughter of Pierre Chavain (a French Revolutionary War solider. Take your choice of the spelling of his surname. Even the Catholic priest couldn't agree.) Peter was the son of James Lawrence, Jr and Kathrine Mount. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Bob Todd

Most likely u know of this story:
JOHN W. PLANK. Mr. Plank is the son of Jacob and Barbara (Zook) Plank, and was born in Wayne county, Ohio, January 27th, 1824. His parents were originally from Pennsylvania. John W. grew to manhood in his native county, and learned the cabinet-maker's trade with his brother-in-law, but worked for a number of years at the carpenter's trade. In 1847 he moved to Elkhart county, Indiana, where he lived until 1868. He then came to Greene county, Missouri, and purchased the farm upon which he now resides. It is a splendid place of four hundred and eighty acres, and he is also the owner of an improved farm in Cedar county, containing two hundred and eighty acres, all of which was made by his industry and perseverance. He is one of Greene's most substantial citizens, and enjoys the confidence of all. Mr. Plank was married March 30th, 1848, to Miss Mary, daughter of Michael and Elizabeth (Blough) Stutzman, of Elkhart county, Indiana. Their union was blest with eleven children, nine of whom are living, Chancy, M., Lavinia A., Amanda J., Lucy A., Milo J., James M., Harvey A., Leander D., and Jerome N. O. [696]

I am not trying to be difficult. I just want to make the memorials as accurate as they can be.

Re: Submitted edits
I am curious as to how you know where these people died? If you are going off the SSI, then that is not necessarily where they died. That shows the last known residence. I have had many people who received their last SS check where they lived, but became ill or died in another city where they were taken.

RE: Shirley Mellor Brooks and Maureen Mellor
In my experience, the Social Security Death Index lists home of record, and interpolates that into place of death.

Still, I would expect interment near the home of record, generally.

RE: Shirley Mellor Brooks and Maureen Mellor
I'll look next week.

A couple years ago (or longer) I photographed every interment in the columbarium.

I think I've only been back once since.

Have an awesome day,
