I think leaving her full name on the memorial is fine. If you remember the source for her full name, it might be nice to add that to her memorial. I had not see that before.

Sharon Curtis Memorial 16884267
Hi Sandra

I really appreciate your help regarding trying to delete the above Memorial Number for my sister and replacing it with the Memorial Number 178777833 that I created.

Per your suggestion, Please send an e mail to edit@find a grave and request that they reinstate my Memorial number 178777833 and transfer all the information on Memorial 16884267 to mine.

The only reason this is such a big deal, is that I sent every member of my family a Memorial Packet with all our families Memorial numbers and now the information is incorrect.

I put a lot of effort in my family project and to try and go back and redo it all is upsetting.

Please do what you can!

Thank you.

Thank you for creating these wonderful memorials for the Torrance-Sleeper family. I am a descendant of Gardner Southworth Sleeper who was Clorinda Sleeper Torrance Morgan's brother. I am using the 1930 book the Sleeper Family of Waco and McLennan County as a guide to their names and parents. It's interesting to see where her descendants are located.

Carters in Acree Cemetery
I'm a Union Parish, LA native & I've been doing some research about the settlers of the Point Community in Union Parish; that's where I've come across the information that I've sent to you about the Carters buried in the Acree Cemetery located in Union Parish. I currently live close by this cemetery.

RE: Memorial #16884267
Thank you for your quick response and detailed explanation as to what happened to Memorial Site #178777833 that I had created for my sister.

Please see if they can reinstate my Memorial Number and delete #16884267.

My reason being, I have already sent out printed Memorial Site information to ALL my family members and now the number is wrong!!!!!

If Find a Grave cannot reinstate my site number with "ALL" the information and pictures that are showing on #16884267, then, as a last resort, please transfer Memorial Site # 16884267 so I can add all the information that was lost in the merging of the two the sites.

I appreciate the time and effort you have put into this unfortunate problem.

You are a kind soul....God Bless you.

What have you have made a mistake!!!
I asked you to please remove Memorial #16884267 because I had created Memorial #178777833 for my sister. Instead of deleting your Memorial site you deleted mine!!!!!!!!!!!! All the information that I had put on mine is gone. I am so upset. Please respond!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I want my site reinstated.

Request that you delete Memorial Site #16884267
I would greatly appreciate it if this Memorial Site was deleted. I am the sister of Sharon M Curtis and I created a Memorial Site for her, which is # 178777833. This site creates confusion for me and my family members. We would rather have just one site in her memory. Thank you so much for your attention to this matter. Darlene Slaby
