Richmond children
I took pictures in Oakdale, La. and put one on your grand parents memorial. I also found a grave on the side of them for Lena G. Richmond. Is she one of their children, she's not listed as one their children???? If she is, I'll place the memorial and link her to her parents..... Can you let me know, Plz.....

Hi Shirley -

Thanks for adding Sadie's photo to F.A.G. also, many thanks for letting me know you did it by your comment on If you hadn't done that, I most likely wouldn't have seen it.We are at our home in Florida right now and I don't have access to my photos so will add her photo to my tree when we get home in April if that's OK with you.

Thanks again.

RE: Find a grave links
Hi Shirley
Thanks for the information on your family. I was able to link Barbara to her parents and was able to correct her dates of birth and death.
I was not able to provide links to Terry Dale. The only ones that are able to add family links are the person that created or manages the memorial, and I believe that her name is Phyllis Jacobs. You can send her a request to provide the links and she should do it for you. Just give her the memorial numbers for his mom and dad like you did for me.
Thanks, Lee Manning

Find a grave links
Hi Shirley
Let me see if I can help you to understand the find a grave system. Every person that is deceased and listed in the find a grave system has a memorial number. To find that number, look on the memorial page that you referenced for Barbara Bonner. Her memorial number is listed right at the bottom of the page. Her number is 7248855. That is the number that she is referred to throughout the find a grave system. Her memorial page shows that she was born in 1939 and died in 1939 and is buried in Oakdale cemetery in Oakdale, Louisiana.
To link her to her parents(and your parents if she is your sister) I will need the memorial numbers for your dad Al Emerson Bonner and mother Ruby Mae Conley. Just a quick search of the find a grave system looking by name only, I find a Ruby Conley (1 buried in Highland Cemetery in Ohio and one buried in Elk Run Cemetery in Virginia.
I could not find an Al Bonner listed but found four Emerson Bonner buried in Nebraska, Wyoming, North Carolina and Michigan,
As you can tell, it is virtually impossible to find the correct person by searching by name.
If your dad and mom are deceased and listed in find a grave, they will have a number listed just like Barbara does.
I hope that this clears up some confusion.
If your parents are not deceased, find a grave dicourages listing them on find a grave memorial pages.
Thanks, Lee Manning

Barbara Bonner link
Please provide the memorial numbers for Barbara Bonners parents so that I can link them to her memorial. The memorial numbers are the correct and only way to provide a link. If a link is tried by name, there may be several people with the same name and a mistake could be made linking
to the wrong person.
Thanks, Lee Manning
