Burial Unknown memorials
You may not know that Find A Grave guidelines do not allow "burial unknown" memorials for more than 30 days without providing location or disposition of the remains.

Also, for women with more than one marriage, the name on the gravestone is the only name to be used in the "Last Name" field. Other spouses should be referenced only in the bio and/or with links to their memorials. This is because if I search for the person by the name they had when buried, I will never find them without putting in all the names that you have. So if you co-opt this person in this manner, others will not be able to find the memorial if this is their ancestor also.

Happy hunting
Joe Spears

You posted a photo on this memorial.

This photo cannot be of John and Hannah Colvin since photography dis not exist during their life time.

You should really remove it and try to determine who the photo really is.

Berry and Francis Brashears
The death dates you have given for Berry and Francis in find a grave can’t be correct. Francis “Fannie” Brashears is living with her daughter and son-in-law in the June 7th 1900 Collin County, Texas census. She is a widow so Berry died sometime between Jun 1880 and Jun 1900. I have not found exact dates for either of their deaths.

I am not sure if I ever responded to your note. You are most welcome to connect the people you asked about, Francis Hewitt and both of her husbands.

RE: Fred Barnes

Please check your regular e-mail, as I've been trying to send you a copy of the pages from my burial listing book and have had some difficulty getting it to transmit --- but I "think" it finally went through.

If not, let me know & I will try again.

RE: Fred Barnes

You are right & I apologize for the error.

I did the memorial from a burial listing book I purchased from the Historical Society, however when I just looked through the book "again", there is a "separate" page which shows Mr. Barnes' body was "exhumed & moved".

It doesn't say where, but I'm sure your records are correct.

Thanks for letting me. I have deleted my memorial.

RE: Anthony Mann
Anthony is special in my family too. His mother Dorothea (Bohn) Mann, was my triple great-grandmother's little sister and why she, Elizabeth (Bohn) Schneider, came to York from Bavaria with her kids after her husband died.

Therefore, Anthony was the cousin of my great-great grandfather, Bruno Schneider. Then, Bruno married the little sister, Anna Mary (Bohli), of Anthony's wife, Mary Ann (Bohli).

The Mann's have 3 lots right next to each other, just uphill from the Priest's Circle.

Lol. My phone has a mind of its own too. Just do the photo request so nobody gets skipped. I'll be out this weekend, decorating. So it's not a problem.

Your most welcome. Is there any others you may need for this cemetery? Several are in the woods, hidden. Love to back if there is needed.
