Martha Kroker at Forest Home
Hi Peg,

I received your request to delete her middle name and make her last name Peters Kroker. I would rather not do this as anyone looking up her grave would more likely use her last name from her death record. Do you concur? I know it is awkward when the last name of a previous husband is added as if it were a middle name, but I have done this so that it might be found in a Google Search when the two names are close to each other. Still, I can remove Peters as the middle name if you wish, just not add it as part of the last name. Make sense?

RE: Polly Curtis
Hi Peg,

Yes, the way find-a-grave works is that the surname is always the married name (if the woman is/was married) and is the maiden name only if she was never married. If married, the maiden name goes in a specific field and shows up in the header italicized.

Find-a-grave allows people to search using either the married or the maiden name, so the woman can usually be found. But it's still a bit confusing, especially if one's database identifies the woman by her maiden name, as does mine.

When I create a memorial, I've got to be very careful with surnames, because I'm inclined to put the maiden name, which is what my data shows. So it takes a conscious effort to do it right. And I still have people writing to say, "Hey dummy! You've got the maiden name as the surname for Susie So-and-so. When this woman died there was no Womens' Lib and women didn't keep their maiden names."

Thanks for your message.

Polly Curtis # 61055457

I don't understand your edit. Polly's gravestone says she was the wife of Aaron Curtis. If you have information to the contrary please send it, along with a source. But I can't put "Unknown" in the name field; it's against find-a-grave guidelines.

I am sorry but the cemetery said that they do not have a record of either Parent. If you have any information that would be helpful I will try again. I did make a notation on the photo requests but left them open. ~Sandie

Robinson @ Blue Hill Cemetery
Hello Peg, I had a chance to add a couple of photos to the Memorial of Eva Oakes Robinson...While I was there I happened to see another Robinson marker with the names James J.1874-1962; Martha J. 1874-1969 and Ronald E. Silva 1943-1964 and Elsie M Silva 1900-1988..I took a photo just in case it may be part of the Robinson family you are interested in.

The cemetery office was unexpectedly closed when I went to take photos, so thank you for having the area number for them.

Their Dad Arthur was my 2 x great grandfather Michael's brother. Do you have photographs. Or better yet, are you related to the family?

There is no headstone for William Purdy McConnell (Cedar Hill Cemetery) only a small metal marker. I took a photo of it and posted it for you.
