Bio and Links
With few exceptions, I am related to all of my memorials.
I inherited a number of original Civil War photos, some signed, some not. The men served in Co L, 4th Michigan Calvary, with my GGGrandfather. I have added memorials for all the known men.
U.S. Navy Veteran
D.A.R under John Kenyon; pending under: Thomas Seamans, Thomas Comstock, Elihu Hicock, John Reynolds and Matthew Harrington.
Mother of two, grandmother of seven.
I strive for accuracy, but do make mistake.
I've been called "an armchair" genealogist by a few. In defense I have traveled coast to coast, driven and flown thousands of miles, for documents/records and graves in
Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Michigan, California, etc.
Sept, 2017, I am going to Ireland to document my 5th Greatgrandfather Thomas Coombs.
I use birth, marriage, death and census records on an individual before I add a memorial. Records don't always match.
A birth record is usually done by the parents. They knew when their child was born. Marriage records are usually done by the individuals involved. Death records are done by an informant, who uses the info they know... not always correct.
Headstones are often rounded up/down a year. Not an accurate perimeter.
Names on headstones are often done incorrectly. Dates are wrong. Spellings are wrong.
Before doing an edit, please insure your edit can be documented. I will be checking.
I just recently did a memorial that it took me 8 years to verify a death date/place.

RE: Fredrick Rydholm
The stone that is there says:

RE: Fredrick Rydholm
You are very welcome.
There is a stone for another Rydholm in the area where the records show Fredrick is buried, however it isn't his. Perhaps a parent?? Wasn't sure if that one is of interest to you or not.

No problem. I just like to look at the facts as sometimes people have the wrong person. Even I get confused sometimes. Are you a Delzell relative? Thank you for the link as i have more Dalzell and Delzell's to look up later in Michigan.
Have a nice day,

Thank you for your post re. father vs son, husband of Florence See. Please click on the husband's link and read his info. Their son was born much later and is not linked as a husband of Florence.

That is one of Find a Grave's "automatic" relative links. I added a link to his actual wife but his mother's listing is still there as another wife.

Thanks! I added the month and day of his death. His birth place is different but i think I have his birth certificate somewhere. My cousin put wrong info on my grandmother"s death certificate. so it happens.

What do you mean? "Big difference between his death certificate and what you have."

I cannot comment on something I have not seen. Please sent me a copy and I will look at it. You do have the correct John Delzell? There are so many of them.

Deibert Family
I am adding the Deibert Family as I go in Mount Hope Cemetery. There are a few more listed in the cemetery records that will be added even if I can not find their graves. The cemetery is challenging:) I added George's wife this morning. If there are any mistakes, please let me know. Thank you
Happy Hunting

Hi Nancy;
It would seem we have a difference of opinions by recognized sources.
You quote the Rhode Island Historical Cemetery Commission.
I am quoting the American Genealogical-Biographical Index (AGBI)
View Record
Name Phebe Cook
Birth Date 1780
Birthplace Rhode Island
Volume 33
Page number 476
Reference Gen. Column of the " Boston Transcript". 1906-1941.( The greatest single source of material for gen. Data for the N.E. area and for the period 1600-1800. Completely indexed in the Index.): 5 Aug 1903, 6486.

Are there two Phobe Cooks ?

I am interested in Phoebe Seamans whose husband is John Wanton Cook.
