|Spaceman Spiff||Requests for John & Birtha Wentworth|
I saw your requests for headstone photos for John & Birtha Wentworth in the cemetery called "Whitten Field" (posted last September). Do you happen to know where this cemetery is located? FindAGrave has no description or map listed. I ran a Google search and thought I'd found it near the intersection of Long Hill Rd & Route 107 in Sebago, but when I drove to the site it's not the correct cemetery. The cemetery at that location is called "McDonald-Witham Yard." I think the other website had gotten "Witham" mixed up with "Whitten."
If we can determine where Whitten Field is located I'd be happy to go and take photos of the two headstones for you.

I looked all over the cemetery for Francis McPhetres, which was requested by you in April 2016. I submitted a picture of where she is supposed to be located. It is just grass. chuck
|E49||Rinker, Jacob & Emma, # 13274580 & 13274597 - Photo|
While researching my Dellinger - Rinker relatives, I came across Jacob and his wife Emma.
There is a sepia tone photo of the two of them, attached to both their memorials, with this caption 'Jacob & Emma Rinker
By Diane Scribner Dolley (Viola Barry Rinker Scribner) granddaughter.'
Apparently, it was scanned and posted as part of a 'letter sized' scan, and thus fails to load properly, see the 'thumb-size' version when looking at the photos indivudually. If you are able to crop the scan to the photo only and re-post it, that may address the display problem.
Should you be in touch with Diane, thank her for supplying the photo on behalf of all of her distant relatives.
Thank you for all your F-A-G efforts and consideration of this request.
Always, in F-A-G brotherhood,

I think you might have Luther Sr., and Luther Jr confused. I have found Luther Sr to have been married to a Serena Glidden and Luther Jr. Married to a F.Melinda Pribble. Thus making Serena Simon's Mother and Melinda/Belinda his sister-in-law.
A penny for your thoughts?

There is no record at Hampton for this soldier.
Plot 5009 (section F1) has a marker for
William Andrews. Dates match. Do we have an alias?
|Joseph G. Benning Sr||James Linscott|
Marietta National Cemetery
B: 1824 ---- D: 1864
We were able to find a #4073 Stone marker located in Section K in the Marietta National Cemetery. Typically, these types of ‘Marker’ are reserved for the burial location of a soldier marked as identity ‘UNKNOWN’. I have posted the picture on James Linscott’s Find-A-Grave Memorial page. I can remove this picture if you request.
|Joseph Mann||RE: Pvt James Berry at Chalmette|
I have been answering photo requests from you for the past few years. I am aware of your desire to have photos of Maine soldiers and whenever I visit the cemetery I always try to get photos for Maine soldiers. I have found several throughout my visits. Unfortunately I have not been recording the names of the Maine soldiers. I do know that I have found quite a few. There were a couple of sections that were strictly Maine people.
I know what you mean about the names being wrong on the headstones. When I see a headstone with the name different from the spelling on the request, I default to the name on the headstone unless there is evidence otherwise. I have to leave it up to the requestor to make changes that they would have superior knowledge of more than me.
I always have an affinity to the Maine personnel as I lived in Maine for 2 years and grew to love that state, except of the black flies.
|Joseph Mann||Pvt James Berry at Chalmette|
I looked at the listing of known burials at Chalmette and James Berry is not listed, so I have no idea if he is buried in an unmarked grave or that his location hasn't been photographed yet.
I and another volunteer are currently in the process of photographing the entire cemetery. It will take some time to complete the project. Hopefully in that time we may be able to find Pvt Berry's location.
In the meantime I am not requesting removal of the request until the photographing project is completed. Again it will take some time, probably a few months.

Thanks for the explanation, it makes sense.
