Nova
Tuckley conection
Hello Derick, my name is Nova, daughter of Sharron Tuckley, and granddaughter of Benjamin Joeseph Tuckley born aprox 1918
Tuck of Boston, is also a match, i believe cheryl tuckley williams may be an aunt, or in my mothers line somehow.
if u have any-info as to who could be the parents of Benjamin and his twin, my family would be so grateful, we are in the process of getting dna done, but i feel a very strong connection here.

Renner Family
Derrick, did you see the post by L Meacham just below my last message. You should check out his photo of the Renner family. It looks like they were on their farm and they both look pretty young. Jim

RE: Thank you again!
Derrick, I don't know about the photos, some are mine and some are not, your choice. I'm sure its ok to share them. The Lenexa Cemetery is very old and is on a hill with no trees. The stones for the Renners look almost like a tall post, and are made of a soft stone, like sandstone or something. I could probably find out if I asked Google what old tombstones are made of. I live close to the cemetery so I went back over and took some more photos and his tombstone looks the same no matter how close you get. Her stone is in much better shape and is still legible, must be the weather. The street where the cemetery's located is named Pflumm Rd, which is named after a family who lived here in Johnson County Kansas. There is a street named (you guessed it) Renner Rd about a mile west of the cemetery. If you check out memorial 32931695 you will see the picture of Charles Thomas Payne and his son Rolla Charles Payne. Charles Thomas Payne was the Great-Great grandfather of President Barack Obama and Rolla Payne was his great grandfather on his mothers side of the family. If you keep looking I'm sure you can find his grandfather. Just a little tidbit for you. Take care Derrick, Jim

Renner, Valentine & Eva
To see a photo of their tombstones do this. Search for "the digital cemetery", open "Johnson County Cemeteries - The Digital Cemetery". Enter their name under search for surnames, click on the word photo and you will see their stones. They may or not be protected, I don't know for sure. Then you can transfer them or not. Your choice.

Renner memorials
Hi, I have sent you a findagrave edit, and I want to make sure you got it. (Recently I found a member whose email program was directing SACs to their spam folder.)

The Renner memorials 39640100 and 39639892 in Old Monticello Cemetery should be in Monticello United Methodist Union Cemetery instead. The names of the two cemeteries being so similar has caused many memorials to be misplaced. Hazel Renner has a previous memorial and should be deleted, but Elmer's could be moved.

Thanks for your time and work on Findagrave!

Photo Request
This is related to photo requests for interments in Memorial Oaks Cemetery in Houston, TX. I reside in Houston and I am "mowing the rows" taking photos. This is necessary because Memorial Oaks provides location info to only family. For photo requests to this cemetery to be filled, the complete plot location info is needed as there are more than 10,000 interments. Just the Section number would be helpful. There is a plot map on the cemetery main page. 832-330-9226

Jacob
Sturdivan
Hi Derrick,

My name's Jacob and you contacted me about Elijah Lake and Melissa Sturdivan?

Elijah lake and Melissa Sturdivan are my 3rd great-grandparents through their son Martin Lake. That must mean we are distant cousins?

I would prefer to keep the memorial of Melissa Sturdivan since she is my great-grandmother, but I would be more than happy to add your info to the memorial and give credit to you.

Feel free to use any of my photos on your relative's memorials or in your family history research. No attribution needed. I am always glad to share them with you or any other relative.

I also have 3 pictures of Elijah and one of Melissa if you are interested in a copy. Also I was able to locate the grave site of Charles Sturdivan (husband to Elizabeth Clark) here in Illinois close to Port Byron in an old Methodist Cemetery currently on private property. I can send you photos of that cemetery too.

I must apologize, most of my information is probably out of date.

Thank you,
Jacob

Derrick,

Posting of photos from Ancestry.com is fine with me. Since these photos are on Ancestry.com, I feel they are public knowledge and I use Ancestry in researching the memorials I enter. I need no acknowledgement as I do this to help others.

Derrick,

I got your message, but there is no way to respond to you privately.

I added Ms. Blacks parents, did you want me to transfer her to you?

I would love it if you would add photos to any memorial you have pictures for, I want all of them to be complete :).

Also, with my pictures, feel free to use any headstone picture I have uploaded, no credit needed.

Catherine Hackmann
Thanks for the note/inquiry. I visit/document graves in this area to help anyone looking, and hope someone is doing the same for my ancestors in the distant places I can't visit.

I don't mind my photo's being used for genealogy purposes (not-for-profit). Cite my name if you can, but don't worry about it if it is difficult. Thanks, Mark Frazier.

You Wrote: Find A Grave contributor Derrick has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for C. Hackmann.

Their suggestion:
-------------------------
Her first name was Catherine.
Here parents were
Father: Henry A Hackmann 29507752
Mother: Katherine ? 37937611
Also... Thank you for your work doing taking these pictures. I have been posting my own pictures as well when I am able to take them.

I don't ever just post other people's photos that they take, but family tree maker now syncs with ancestry.com, and so without originally intending to, the pictures went up on ancestry.com on the relative's profile. I wanted to see if that was ok with you (as I prefer sharing knowledge) and wanted to know if you wished to be acknowledged by the findagrave link to the memorial or yourself, or in any other way?

Thank you
Derrick
