CORRECTIONS AND TRANSFERS
I WELCOME all corrections, and with a few exceptions, I am happy to transfer any of the memorials I have created - on to those who have a relationship, or historical interest.
My belief is that family members, however distant, make the most caring managers of memorials.
My own ancestors, family, friends, most local memorials, and special history interests, I do maintain in my care, with various exceptions to this, too.

|Yellow Rose of Texas - Judy in California||Ella Josephine Thurlo|
Hello, My name is Judy and I am working with a lady who is the niece of Ella and she is trying to
join DAR through this line. We are stuck trying to find the marriage record for Ella and Walter Drake Williams. We know Ella is a widow when she married but do not know where.
Do you happen to have a copy of the marriage record that you would be willing to share or direct us to where we can find a copy.
thank you in advance for any help you can provide and thank you for your work on Find A Grave.
Judy in California
|Heather Sanderson||Bette Davis Eyes|
Your message for my mother makes me smile every time I see it. We think she resembled Bette Davis, too. You have a good eye. (you can find her again under my memorials added. Jacqueline Stanford Fridge.)

When you get it send it to me so I can get a pic of the marker!
|D. Singleton Shell||Grandma Singleton|
Next time you visit, check behind the photo. I added a little bit more. Also, will you please correct my mistakes in putting it all together. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your memorials are so interesting to read. You are a real professional. djs
|D. Singleton Shell||YOU FOUND IT!!!!|
I don't know what to say, except THANK YOU! I have asked my son to save it for me, I don't navigate well, and would never have thought to search with what Grandma sang over and over. "In the tree" repeated may have been just the clue one needed. Now I can leave it to my granddaughters in case they would like to carry on the tradition when they have children. Love having the extra verses. Bless your heart, you've made this old woman very happy. :) Hugs and thanks for all you do for people. Darla p.s. Wouldn't Grandma get a thrill out of this? Wish she knew!
Georgia, I found Louise on the 1940 Census in Chicago married to Franklin G. Murdock and I also found her obit that says she is buried at Our Lady of Sorrows in Hillside, Il. I posted a memorial for her husband Franklin #154156512 with his obit.
The only thing you can do is to contact the cemetery and see if they have a record of her burial, she does not show up on the kiosk, but the wife Pauline did. Judy

Our lady of sorrows is actually a small northwestern portion of Queen of Heaven in Hillside but for some reason has its own name. In the computer kiosks they refer to Queen of heaven and not OLS for the sections numbered 100-110
|Andrea Elam||John Thurlo|
Memories of Needles past and present - a group on Facebook has a book of descendants of John and Abigail Thurlo. Just passing info along.
There are three stones in the Ingraham block that have first names only. I live in Waitsburg so went to check if the city had more detail. There was a letter to the clerk in 2002 offering corrections.
I have a copy of the letter and have scanned it. It appears to be from a person that has done a fair amount of research on Ancestry.
I don't see quite how to attach it here. My regular e-mail is email@example.com and I would be happy to share that letter.
|RhettaSue||RE: Annie Bridges|
John H.(Henry Bridges seems to have vanished into thin air after the 1920 census! I have searched (online) the newspapers, cemeteries, census, California Death Index, etc., all to no avail. John is not a direct ancestor, my connection is only through his marriage to Annie. John and Annie did not have any children together. John had children from a previous marriage. I am in contact with one of his direct descendants and they also have not been able to find anything about him after 1920. The search goes on. :)
