Staup family
Hi Sally!

I have been wanting to get in touch with you for years literally!

I am the daughter of Herbert Russell Staup and Sarah Maude Kelley. I have been researching our family In an amateur sort of way for years and Now to find this site I can Legitimize my own findings and even correct some and add pictures.

I do not want to take over in any way but want to thank you for all that you have done over the years.

The girl at Loves gave me your name and told me you were very 'into' genealogy and I did stop at the Coney library to try to look into things but Living in Ohio/Florida (snowbirds) getting back there can be tough.

I want to thank you and hopefully get to know you a bit if even only through this.

MMemorial #66859477 - Hugh McMillan
Sally, I have a question on the children of Hugh and Margaret McMillan. They look like they had two sons named "Hugh". The first one being killed in the Civil War and other born 12 Jan 1871. Is this an oversight or were there really two sons they named Hugh? I would think that they had named they second son Hugh in memory of their first son who was killed as well as Hugh Jr.'s father Hugh Sr. who married Ann Mayne. Thank you

2nd tombstone/different cemetery
I have added a photo for Narvell Issac Nine (#74979868) that I shot 10/8/2008 in Percy Cemetery, Frostburg, Allegany Co, MD. You appear to have created his memorial page & list his burial at Oak Hill cemetery in Laconing. I don't know why he would have two markers in different cemeteries. Perhaps you have more information?

RE: : Clarence Fazenbaker's wife Jane
Thank you Sally! Yes, I will add her to findagrave. She was the only sibling that we didn't have information on after her marriage. (Velma was my grandmother.)

Clarence Fazenbaker

I'm wondering if you have been able to link Clarence (5/8/1895-11/15/1960) to his third wife, Jane (McCormick) Fazenbaker at all?

re duplicate FAG memorials for Peter Staup 1820-1893
Hello Sally Atkinson.
The note below is copy of message I just sent to Find a Grave contributor (46781316) Mary Anne Bingham. As you will see by the message. I believe yours is the correct one except for the birthdate.(After doing my sums based on the inscription - it should be 27 Sept 1820). I do not know how to fix the problem re duplicate memorials, so hope you can. Regards Barb Muir

Hello Mary Anne Bingham.
Re your memorial # 55348436 for Peter Staup. It seems to be a duplicate (almost) except for the birth date, of the Maryland Find A Grave index of memorial no Find A Grave # 66575059, managed by Sally Atkinson,which has a photo of his Grave Marker... Inscription: Peter Staup, died Dec. 6, 1893, aged 73 yrs, 2 mons, 9 dys. "A precious one from us has gone, A voice we loved is still, A place is vacant in our home, Which never can be filled." ...
Going by the inscription he would have been born on 27 September 1820.
Hope somehow this Duplicate record problem can be rectified.
Regards Barb Gillespie

Duplicate Memorials
I'm hoping you can shed some light on the following.

I noticed you have a Find-A-Grave memorial for Nora Catherine (Beckman) Swires which you have placed in Beckman Cemetery. You created this memorial March 17, 2012

I have a picture of a gravestone for this same person, The picture was taken recently at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery, Loch Lynn, MD.

A Find-A-Grave memorial for Nora Catherine (Beckman) Swires at Pleasant Valley Cemetery was created way back on March 31, 2003 by Stephanie Lang. I now manage that memorial.

Her obit states that she is buried in Pleasant Valley Cemetery. I'm confused. The grave stone shows the birth year and the death year.and seems to be complete. Do you have anything that says she is buried at Beckman Cemetery? If she is actually buried at Beckman Cemetery, I can remove the Find-A-Grave memorial at Pleasant Valley.

I am a direct descendant through her youngest son Richard and his youngest son Michael. I searched that cemetery about 20 years ago and did not find a headstone. Is there a headstone? Are you related? Can you tell me where you got the information?

Hugh McMillan
I tried to respond to your email regarding Hugh McMillan but it keeps bouncing back. There was no "reply" function to address your issue.

I'd like to maintain Hugh's memorial as I am a descendant. I saw the pictures you posted of Hugh and his wife. I have similiar pictures in my research files. I need to pull them out for comparision. What information do you have to add to Hugh's memorial?
