RE: Samuel B Frye
You are welcome.

Regarding the Forest Lawn database, for the Long Beach location the cemetery has over 100,000 graves but less than 20,000 are in their on-line database. Part of this is due to several ownership changes before Forest Lawn bought the property. Even their hard copies are in different formats and it takes their record clerks sometimes 15 minutes to look up a grave location (or tell us they can't find it). We have called 3 times on different days on occasion before one of the clerks is able to locate a name in the records!

The clerks are also unfriendly to frequent callers - either have caller ID or recognize our voices - and no longer provide grave locations to 'non-family'.

RE: Col John Joseph
Hello. I do not have a copy of the marriage record to Bette. I got my information from his son Kenneth Lynch and granddaughter Kimberly Lynch.

RE: Margaret Elizabeth Gilbert
I also only have noted that she died in 1920--it is not sourced. I am unable to find any record (of proof) noting that she married. Re: Tamer E. Cochran (I assume Tamer's middle name may have been Elizabeth). After Robert D. Gilbert died in 1847 (they were married 14 Mar 1843 in Brown Co OH and had 3 children: Margaret Elizabeth 1843-1920, John W. Gilbert 1845-1845, lived just over 2 months; and James Harvey Gilbert 1846-1926) -- Tamer married Thomas Chambers 4 Sep 1851 Brown co OH; they lived in Liberty Adams, OH 1860, Corydon, Wayne Co Iowa 1870 and 1880 until her death, where she is also buried.) Tamer 3 Apr 1826 Huntington Twp., Brown, OH - 17 Dec 1891 Corydon, Wayne Co Iowa. Tamer and Thomas had 5 children: Tamer Clementine 1855-1900, Dr. Joseph Elliot 1856-1920, Sarah Ella 1858-1873, Wm. T. 1861-1903 and Lydia Ruth Chambers 1863-1922. I am relaying this based on info I already have on ancestry. I didn't research Tamer's and Thomas' children further; although I did Tamer's and Robert's and found nothing new. Hope this helps. Ann

RE: Mary J Langnecker
Hi! Thanks for replying.

I simply clicked on the "edit" button on her memorial page with the suggested edit. Find A Grave notified you of my suggested edit.

As manager of her memorial, are you not able to delete the inaccurate spouse?

Please advise.

I had requested a change of spouse because the info was wrong. Forest Eugene Benefiel 179609077 was her spouse. They are my paternal grandparents. I know my info correct. If you need me to verify anything else, just let me know.

Thank you
Kara (Benefiel)
