|Sharlotte Neely Donnelly||Now rank Abbot as famous|
I think it would now be possible for you to rank John Abbot as "famous" at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSvcid=280783&GRid=5336990&.
|nu2ga||William Strickland - #5337021|
Someone just pointed out to me that I had created a duplicate memorial for William Strickland. I have deleted the duplicate and posted grave pictures to your memorial. Unfortunately, when I posted the grave pictures - it bumped the portrait that you had posted to the back page. That was certainly not my intent. When you post pictures, there's a drop-down where you can select Grave, Person, Family or Other. If you go back in and change it to Person - it'll put the portrait at the top and no one else can ever move it.
If you'd rather I delete the grave pictures, just let me know.

Would you consider adding the following to what you already have at John Abbot's grave?
Englishman John Abbot is one of the world's most famous wildlife painters. His work was so valued that the famed scientist Charles Darwin studied his paintings in London before setting on his explorations that led to his theory of evolution. John Abbot's books and paintings are in museums, archives, and libraries in Great Britain, New Zealand, the United States (Georgia, South Carolina, Maryland, Massachusetts, etc.), and elsewhere. Anyone who has heard of John Audubon has heard of John Abbot. In 1797 Abbot's drawings received increased attention in international naturalist and scientific circles due to the publication of The Natural History of the Rarer Lepidopterous Insects of Georgia by Sir. James Edward Smith. The two-volume work included one hundred and four hand-colored engravings of Abbot's paintings, along with Abbot's notes and observations, given in both French and English. Throughout his life, Abbot is credited with over five thousand watercolor sketches. Along with the publication of The Natural History of the Rarer Lepidopterous Insects of Georgia, Abbot's specimens and paintings are believed to have been utilized for a number of publications, including Johann Christian Fabricius's Entomologia Systematica Emendata et Aucta (1792-1799), Thomas Martyn's Psyche (1797), Jacob Hübner's Sammlung Exotischer Schmetterlinge (1806-1838) and Zuträge zur Sammlung Exotischer Schmettlinge (1808-1837), William Swainson's Zoological Illustrations (1820-1821), Jean Baptiste Alphonse Boisduval and John Eatton Le Conte's Histoire Générale et Iconographie des Lépidoptères et des Chenilles de l'Amerique Septentrionale (1829-1837), Edward Doubleday's The Entomologist (1840), Charles Athanase and Baron Walckenaer's Histoire Naturelle des Insects: Aptères (1837-1847), and again in the 1836 volume of Herman August Hagen's Abbot's Handzeichnungen im Britischen Museum und die Neuroptera Georgiens.
