memorial 136146298
Dear Joan,

Please remove your memorial 136146298, Magdalena Younkin, from John Younkin, memorial 36004668.

You have this Madalena mixed up with the wife of John's cousin, also named John.

See my research, that of Donna Younkin Logan and Mark Miner.

RE: Violet Catherine (Ammerman) Eamigh
Thanks for your reply, Joan.
Yes, I think a note that her father's name on the BC is different than the obit. You might also note that her maiden name used on her son Percy's DC is also different than the obit. I think this last item is important because Percy was less than 1 year old at his death (his mother was still living).

RE: Catherine Gates

You are welcome. I uploaded her birth record. Date errors on tombstones are common, probably because the information comes from the memory of family members.--Storres

RE: James M Gates

You are welcome and thank you for adding the biography. I searched him on ancestry and all of his official records have his birth in 1905. The obituary could be in error. I uploaded the image of his World War II draft card to his memorial. I will delete it after you see it. It has his sister Catherine as his beneficiary and middle name Michael. I will find birth records for Catherine and make edit requests. Also, I found his sister, Mary Leonard and requested edits to her memorial.--Storres

RE: James M Gates
Thank you. The obituary was sent using the edit function and, hopefully, will appear in your email. It is odd in that his spouse, Eugenia, was buried where they lived in Arizona. Evidently, he wanted to be with his parents at South Fork. It appears that they met in South Fork while she was a school teacher. I found the Gates memorials when looking for the Orner families in Clinton County, PA. Please check your Edits TAB to see a link to his spouse, Eugenia. She is, Find A Grave Memorial# 35680177. Thank you for your response and help.--Storres

RE: George S Beers
You're very welcome on receiving the obit. I just submitted an edit for his wife. This is why I do it, to help families learn more about their ancestors.

Hi Joan,
I added a photo of George Balliet Frankenfield, Jr. and George Balliet Frankenfield. Have you ever been up to the Frankenfield covered bridge near the old homestead?

RE: 138867602 error in wife's name
Hi Joan,
Thank you for updating my mother's maiden name so quickly. Yes, please transfer George B. Frankenfield, Jr. to me. You are correct, I am just starting out in Find A Grave. I have some photos of my father I can post. Thank you for your interest in my side of the family!
Yours truly,
