Hello Deb,
I have just sent an edit for Marion's Death Date, and uploaded his Death Cert to the Memorial which clearly states Death as 2 Feb 1975.
The Date currently input 4 Feb 1975 is quoted on the Cert as the date received by the registrar.
I thought I would just explain this.
Thank you for adding his memorial etc on Find A Grave, to me by the way he is a husband of 4th cousin 2x removed, although I do have contact to a Grandson of his.

Kind Regards

Milton F Wiltse
Someone let me know that you had set up a memorial for this person. I took a photo of his headstone and added him to Garden of Memories Cemetery in Salinas. If you would like to fix your memorial and connect it to Garden of Memories, I will gladly add the photo of the headstone and delete my memorial.

Walsh Gough Pringle
Ref William Walsh and Mary family

I was interested to see the details of this family

You have an Arthur (b 1810), a member of the constabulary in Dublin.

My ancestor is Arthur Walsh, (b 1810), and he was in the Royal Irish Constabulary.

The only discrepancy is that Arthur actually died in 1892.

However I believe they are the same person.

Duplicate photos
Hello, I stumbled across your message about someone adding duplicate photos on memorials that you have already added photos. The same thing is happening to me near Cascade, someone is adding multiple photos to existing memorials with perfect photos. It is very annoying to say the least. Others have mentioned the practice to me as well. Is there an edit tab to request removal? Thanks

Feel free to do so. I took photos of the Allison cemetery over a year ago. I also have family in the area.

I added a clearer photo showing his military post and one showing his military plaque. Someone else also added one, but it is still difficult to see the dates. Let me know if you do not want it here...the memorial is getting crowded!

William C. McNeilus

I found an obituary for Wm. C. McNeilus buried at Oak Hill Cem. at Bristow, Butler, Iowa. There was no memorial for him, so I created one and linked him to his wife, Dorothy, and parents, Archie and Violet.

You have memorials for other McNeilus family members buried there as well as some other people buried there.

I went over and photographed the entire cemetery, and have begun posting photos. I did put some on where you already had a photo, just because it was a gorgeous day, and I got a good shot. But I don't want to override your efforts at all. Just check, and I will delete my pix if you prefer. No problem.

Hi Deb Kent my name is Cory and Im wanting to know if Robert Carl Kent ever lived in Orland Fl. because im trying to find out if this Robert Kent is my grandfather, he was the only match I found on that links his birth to Janesville, Rock County, Wisconsin

Jennifer Schlieger
Thank you
I have never known much about my father's side of the family. My grandparents (Arlie and Nelva Oldfield White) moved to Arkansas from Janesville when I was very young and my father (William John Oldfield) left not too much longer after them, about four or five years. Not having much contact with him after he left, I have learned more about the Oldfield family history after his death when I received death, christening, and birth certificates, wills, and even my Grandmother's (Nelva Oldfield White) baby book. This information really triggered me wanting to know more. It has been difficult to obtain information, not really knowing family on that side. Thank you for what information you have shared. I will try to find a photo of my father to share.

John Granville Meyers
I found his obit! This was too good to not share. I am no transcriber - but, man, this guy lived the American Dream and I wanted you to have it.

Washington Post, Dec. 14, 1902

Builder, Architect, and Inventor, an Old and Well-known Resident
The funeral of John Granville Mayers, one of the oldest and best-known architects and builders of Washington, and also and inventor, who died Friday, will take place this afternoon at 2 o'clock, with services at his home 1201 Whitney avenue northwest. He had lived in Washington over forty years. For a number of years he suffered from Bright's disease. His death came a few hours after an attack of paralysis.
Mr. Meyers was born in Northampton County, PA, September 13, 1834. His attendance at school was brief, but he studied much for himself. He began work while as a stone mason, and at the age of 18 learned the trade of carpenter. Later he was a contractor and builder at Nazareth, PA for several years, and he continued this business on coming to Washington. At one time he owned a brick yard near the navy yard.
He became interested about 25 years ago in the manufacture of artificial stone, in which he devised and patented several processes. At the time of his death he had newly perfected a process fro making artificial stone blocks, and was projecting the erection of a building constructed from foundation to roof of this material, entirely without wood. It had been his ambition for years to complete his work. He had also patented a process of building mausoleums, and for the desiccation of the dead, having won the Franklin medal for the best method of disposing the bodies.
After practical work as a builder he studied architecture. He planned the residence of Christian Heurich, the late Marshall Brown, and many others. He also erected the Baltic Building, the college building at Kendall Green and contributed to the plans and specifications of the State, War and Navy buildings.
He was a Scottish Rite Mason, and an Odd Fellow. For years he was an officer of the Eighth Street Lutheran Church. His wife and five of his six children, two daughters and four sons, were at his bedside at the time of his death. A son living in Pasadena, CA was not in the city.

RE: Meyers Family Headstones
No problem! Just uploaded them now. I sent edits for the last names as Granville not Grainville.

Enjoy the mystery and good luck on finding the solution!

John Granville
His Wife
Maria Clewell

If you would like to make the memorials I would be happy to upload the photos.

Ida Evaline Stroud Curtis

Thanks for the heads up on the duplicate - I have put through a request to delete one (the older one) because the links are present on the newer one. The only problem I have with all of this is the 1855 birth date you suggest conflicts with her tombstone which lists 1854.

I have also changed the parents - hoping these are the correct parents and removed Theodore Roosevelt as a previous husband.

Thanks for contacting me about this.

Her tombstone states her name is Ida E so I am confused about your request. Could you provide more information?

RE: Florence Maloy Walsh
Thanks for the information. I'm not very good with computers. After all these years, I'm just figuring out how to put stuff on FIND A GRAVE. There weren't computers back when I went to school..I am still trying to learn. Tried to send the obituary tonight, but can't do that yet. i'll ask my daughter when she gets home from work tomorrow if she can help me when she gets off work. I've got the booklet for the new printer in front of me. Last time I tried got error message, and the beat goes on. If nothing else can copy the facts off it in this square, but don't think I will have to. mary

RE: Florence Malroy Walsh
I have contacted the person who put the Ray Maloy Memorial on the Horton Cemetery Find a Grave, and without their input, I am unable to add Ray Maloy to his parents. The contributer has not responded to my request. I don't know how to find Alice Macmahon's grave site in California. She was married to G.F, Mcmahon who has been given 3 birthdates that I am aware of. 1901 and 1902 in Missouri and on social security 1897. I found a family generated record which states that both Alice and G.F. Mcmahon died in Glendora, California. Alice's middle name was Lydia. I have found G.F. Mcmahon as Glen Francis Mcmahon.

I had wondered if you were related. I went to his mom and dad's memorial pages and saw all of the info. I think that is awesome that you are doing that. So do you descend from the Heeren's or the Leerhoff's?
