Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello most of memorials are of family. Those that are not family were tombstones that caught my eye and I thought were interesting looking. If I have added a family member please email me and I will transfer them to you. Family should be the first to add a name.

RE: Arthur Gerdes
I was all set to send it to you but the email address wasn't accepted. Is there a different address or shall I send it snailmail?

RE: Arthur Gerdes
Sorry Carol, I have nothing current. I have little on Arthur Elan Gerdes since he married my Mother's half sister. I have his obit; no mention of his parents. He was, however, born on March 6, 1910 in Lincoln, Lancaster, NE; died at age 59 on Dec.6, 1969 in Lincoln. Hope you can find what you are looking for.

RE: Arthur Gerdes
I don't but his son may be able to help. Not sure I have a current address but I'll try to contact him. The year sounds possible.

Sophia Vanda
You'll have to change her dates- I had transferred her to your management before I saw her birth and death dates.

Getting ready when nice to go fill some of the request.Katherine is not in the cemetery censes.The obit says she is buried in Tyrone which is where she was born. Her parents are buried in St. Patrick's. Tyrone is a small town probably 10 miles south of Georgetown.

Ellsworth McClurg
Carol, I have been searching for Ellsworth McClurg's father, who is also named Ellsworth. He died in 1914 when his son was 2 years old. The elder Ellsworth does not have a memorial on Find a Grave. Do you have any idea where he might be buried? The younger Ellsworth was a cousin to my grandmother. Thanks!

RE: Jennie McFarland Eaton.
Thank you Carol for doing that. Jennie's mother Chloe Elizabeth Buchanan McFarland was someone I had searched for for several years before I found her. I did not know her married name, or even if she had grown up to be married. I thought she may have died as a very young child. Even when I got a clue to her married name I felt it was too good to be true. Chloe was the sister of my great grandfather. Thanks again for your help.

RE: Edit
It probably was automatically accepted because after 21 days the edits are automatically accepted, but you might want to keep checking it because some edits that I receive aren't correct and I have declined them.

Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.
