Incorrect Mother/No Mother
I descend from Franklin Harwood (136295995). I was wondering if you would consider transferring his memorial to me. He is my Great Great Grandpa. Although he had 10 kids, only 5 lived and of those five, only two had offspring. So, there are very few people who descend from him. I know a lot about his life that I'd like to add to his memorial. He died of alcohol poisoning and was an alcoholic because of the tragedy he witnessed and had to live with after the Civil War. His father had taken a second wife after Franklin's mother died and the second wife was much younger. She had a brother who went off to war with Franklin and they were similarly aged and were like brothers to each other although their true relationship was step nephew/ step uncle. At Franklin's order to retrieve an instrument he had forgotten, his step mom's brother was shot and killed. Another man was sent to retrieve it and was also killed. It was too much and he drown himself in alcohol, dying in a hotel in Boston. :-(

Franklin's memorial currently shows his father's second wife as his mother. This should be changed. His true mother was: 183710637

Franklin also had a sister that you own (136296034). She appears with Andrew Allen Harwood as her father which is correct and she appears without a mother. You could also add the same mother to her: 183710637

I know that it's not the goal to own tons of memorials on Find a Grave. I own less than 20 and they are all my family. I'd love to be able to update Franklin's with his story if you're not too attached to it.

Many thanks either way,
Michelle Trostler

Thomas Gibbs Centre Cemetery
Hi Caryn,

Quick question. You mentioned that Thomas and Abigail Gibbs are buried near their son Joseph and his family in the Centre Cemetery in Wareham. Can you be more specific. How close? I'm doing a SAR supplemental application back to Thomas and they will wonder why he was not buried back in Sandwich, where he lived most of his life. I believe Thomas and Abigail went to Wareham to live with Joseph in their later years. I would like the connection/explanation to Joseph to be air tight. Thanks.

Olga O. Chase

Thank you for adding the photo for Olga O. Chase.
I have submitted a SAC for her name, place of birth, etc. Olga is my husband's great aunt. We have been searching for his Finnish family and recently received some information from his cousin. Although it is out of the guidelines, I would be happy to maintain the memorial.

Your help is appreciated,
