If I don't respond to a request for transfer it means I prefer to retain the memorial.

In the event a photo of a headstone is not included, it generally means that the memorial information was taken from a cemetery transcription or death record. One of those who did the transcription was Elizabeth C. Curtis. Without her efforts cemeteries such as Trinity United Methodist and Old Third Central Presbyterian Cemetery records would not be included or available since neither of the above church exists today, including the cemetery and headstones. I found out on January 21, 2010 that internment's of Old Third Central Presbyterian Church Cemetery have been moved to Riverview Memorial cemetery in Charleston.

Some of the headstones at the Circular Church were impossible to read, however the church had previously documented many of the graves sites by plot #'s. In those cases where I could not read the headstone I used the information from the church records found at the Charleston library to identify the headstones. I did list the plots #'s on the majority of the memorials.

A special thanks to the work of Clare Jervey published in 1906 with the transcription of St. Michael's. Her transcription allowed me to include much that was unreadable.

ev. Patrick CONWAY
Are you familiar with the following source?

Conway, Rev. Patrick was born in Ferns, Co. Wexford in 1838. He came to the U.S. at age fourteen, and settled in Chicago, where he soon entered the University of St. Mary of the Lake to study for the priesthood. He finished his studies at Notre Dame University and was ordained by Bishop Duggan on July 7, 1865. He was the second rector of Holy Name parish, and died July 1, 1888. (History of Holy Name Church)

RE: Samuel Compton and his wife Elizabeth Lewis (118390307 and 92801830)
The quaker record below will help clear it up. It indicates Samuel died 6 Feb 1805 shortly after being received into the Miami Monthly Meeting of quakers in Warren County Ohio and is buried on his farm.

RE: Samuel Compton and his wife Elizabeth Lewis (118390307 and 92801830)
Thank you for the quick reply. The article clearly shows there was a Samuel and Elizabeth Compton buried in the Ol St. John's Cemetery. Was there also any information on their birth or death dates found? If not, I think its more likely this was a different Samuel and Elizabeth Compton and it would be more accurate for their findagraves to list them without birth and death dates.

Samuel Compton and his wife Elizabeth Lewis (118390307 and 92801830)
Hello, The Find A Grave Memorial#s Samuel Compton and his wife Elizabeth Lewis (118390307 and 92801830) in the Saint John's Burying Ground (Defunct) in Manhattan are for the same couple as 14293973 and 14294057 in Warren County Ohio. Do you recall what your source was for the two burials in Manhattan? I would love to find more details on this couple as they were my 5xGGPs. Thanks, David

Ferdinand Wythe Peck
Many thanks for your extensive work on FindAGrave! How do you find the time!?

Anyway, I am a family genealogist for the Peck line and have an addition for your memorial #172203699: Buda Mae Peck, daughter of Ferdinand Wythe Peck. She probably the most socially prominent of the children, given her wedding, of which I have quite a pile of family pictures from Buda's great-niece Mary Peck Brannon née Judson.

Here are Buda's dates: b. 3 October 1873 Chicago, Cook, IL and d. 15 January 1978 Dayton, Montgomery, OH. She married Charles Harries Simms (b. 1867 d. 1947) in 1899 at Oconomowoc's most notorious wedding. I have never found a Find A Grave memorial for her but her husband's is 71951470. I suspect a separation :-))

Glad to see Rose Hill is letting Find A Grave in now. When I first checked, they did not allow pictures or even entrance by non-family members. My wife would have had to show up for me to work there!

Yours for more genealogical fun -- John Sweeney

P.S. More info on my Ancestry tree "Cousins Family Tree" under username SweeneyJohnJ.

RE: Sprung
Under Prefix on my memorial it does not show Capt. But when I look at your Memorial under prefix it does. It's been an ongoing problem.
Thank you, Lettie

RE: Power
It's noted in the Woodlawn records that he was moved to Kensico, which is why I searched for a memorial there. Otherwise, I would have assumed he was under his marker. :-)

Can you imagine paying for that enormous stone and then moving and paying for another one?

RE: Sprung
I'd like to have the pictures from the Memorial and I'd hate to lose the message that was left in 2012. So I will see if I can have them combine them. How did you get your Memorial to add Capt.? Mine does not show that option.
Best Wishes, Lettie

RE: William Ogden Wheeler
Speaking of Ogdens and Wheelers, in case you are interested, I documented a few more graves in this lot:

(There is another memorial for her in another cemetery. As soon it is moved into the right one, I will delete my memorial on put my photo on it.)

Nicholas Power
Hi! Here's something odd: Nicholas Power was moved to Kensico but the rest of his family - and a grave marker for him - remain at Woodlawn:

I link the cenotaph to your memorial. I wonder why he was moved. Any ideas?
