I had found Carl Edwin Anderson Obit. in the paper and typed out the first paragraphs but didn't add the rest of the Obit. page so could you add the rest of the obit to it. I'm sorry for the mistake, as that makes it harder on you. I will send the rest of the obit and you can add it. or let me know and I can type it all together and send it. Which works for you. Thank you Betty Glazier Whipple # 48282210
Please let me know.

Good Evening,

I am trying to clarify a photo of a headstone that is said to be for Maria Louise Mann Maulding. The photo attached to the memorial states Maria L. with your stating there is an inscription naming the spouse A.P. Maulding, Ambrose Pleasant Maulding. I have found a different regional link that shows a different headstone than the one linked to Maria:

Through multiple Gedcoms I have seen a headstone represented for Maria Louise Mann Maulding that I believe is incorrectly linked. The above headstone lists her name, lists the name of her husband Ambrose, lists her date of death, and lists her age. Through reverse headstone calculator I get a birthdate of 25 October 1830. Ambrose and Maria were married on the 6 of January 1859. Her death on December 10, 1859 correlates to a death from complications of the birth of her first and only child, Charles Albert Spaulding. Many of the birth record Gedcoms show a birthdate of 22 November 1860. I see this date listed by him on his death records. My belief through inductive reasoning is that he was actually born on the 22 November 1859. His mother died 18 days after his birth. To date I have not found an 1860 census for Ambrose Pleasant Maulding to confirm if he was still with Dad. My guess is he was taken into another family members home at this time of grief. I will continue to research each family member on both Mothers and Fathers line to see if he was taken in. I do know he was reunited with his Dad after the marriage to Guilema Mills.

Do you have a method of verifying this photo you have attached to Maria's memorial? I appreciate your time and efforts and am seeking to establish the most correct information possible.

Thank you Donna Meridieth

Evaline Lewis

Do you have a photo of this tombstone? I am searching for the burial of Evaline Lewis that I believe died about 1890 in or around Marion, Washington County, Iowa. Given the proximity of Henry County, am wondering if the date of 1819 for this Evaline Lewis is accurate? The Evaline Lewis I'm searching was born in 1849 - could this be a transcription issue? I appreciate any assistance you can offer. Her husband remarried and moved the family to Oregon/Washington, so that may also be a reason she is the only Lewis in the Barton Cemetery. Thank you.

consider Bio edits?
I was wondering that if one took the time to compose a bio for a memorial that you would consider posting it, assuming it's propriety. I'm interested in adding information on memorial 138992911. Thanks.

Regarding Find A Grave Memorial# 87471550:
Attached here is a URL to an Arizona on-line Death Certificate for a Carl Axel Swanson. His birth and death years jives with the Memorial you created, but I am not sure if this is one and the same person. The Memorial says his spouse is "Caroline", whereas this Arizona death certificate shows a spouse names as "Lillian C. Swanson". Perhaps you may have a better understanding of this on your end. Here is the URL:
