Bio and Links
Please feel free to use any photo I have taken of your family members headstone in any way YOU see fit;I am not one of the current "photo snobs" who demand permission for use of their "copyrighted photographs". I take them FOR FAMILIES and in the interest of "historical preservation",not for my own gratification. I will gladly transfer ANY memorial I've created that YOU wish to maintain; will apply logical "edits"-please do not send endless "edit requests" for things like "headstone transcription" when it is perfectly readable in the photo i.e.-military service.

RE: re: Samuel Crawford
Hello Janet,
Again, thank you so much for updating Samuel's memorial bio so quickly. Yes, I would love for you to transfer management of it to me. Would you be willing to also transfer his brother, Sgt. Commodore Perry Crawford's, memorial #166921783 to me as well? Also, thank you so much for adding the obit to Perry's wife's memorial.

I am now trying to piece together Samuel and Perry's parents, Samuel Crawford and wife, Ruth? When I do, I'll link them all together. Thanks again for your wonderful help.

Commodore Perry Crawford Memorial #166921783
I am excited to tell you that I found Commodore Perry's brother, Samuel Crawford's, gravesite which you originally created (#40742357). I've sent you edits on new info I found. Apparently, they both enlisted in Co. K, 32nd Reg't OVI and Samuel didn't make it out alive, being killed in Atlanta. Thank you for all the time you put in and work you do to preserve history. I really appreciate being able to contribute to your memorials.

Many of the headstones out at the Fort Bliss National Cemetery are hard to read due to etching on white marble with no letter darkening. If you click on the photo a couple of times it becomes easy to read.

RE: Ruth C. McCreery - 120846002
yes, that other john w. in reno, nevada was actually incorrectly sent by me as father a few weeks ago, before I dug further and found the real john w's death cert. so it's my fault and my errors i'm trying to get right. :)

Ruth C. McCreery - 120846002
I sent an edit that was declined; since the system doesn't tell me which edit it was, I'm assuming it was for her parents...

I'm pretty certain that Ruth's current memorial has the incorrect father linked. Her mother, John's 2nd wife, Mary Ellen McElweee, is yet to be found. All of the info in the obituary in this memorial lines up with my corrections.

Incorrect father: John Wallace Carpenter in Reno, Nevada (memorial: 143134133)

Correct father: John Wallace Carpenter in Bolivar, Missouri (memorial: 69935945); he is buried with his 1st wife, Emma Dickson Carpenter (69935998).
I have edits pending to correct all of this.

You can see the source records, including John's death cert, and the 1900 & 10 censuses that include Ruth, at familysearch:§ion=details&person=KLCR-1MF&spouse=KHWJ-CR4

Thanks much,
Drew Carpenter
