William Rehklau
Hi Don,

Just an FYI. It appears that you've accidentally uploaded to William Rehklau's Find A Grave Memorial (#74904278) the same photo twice. Since you can only upload a limited number of photos to a memorial it would be nice if you'd remove the duplicate freeing up the spot for future use. Thanks,

- Dave

Requesting transfer of your memorial for Bertha B Orwig #51693984 (1901-1970) who was the 2nd wife of my wife's Orwig line. I will then add Bertha's as spouse of Sidner L. Orwig. Thx in advance.

RE: Amos Reynolds in Maumee, OH
Thank you for considering my suggestion and making the change. I appreciate your doing this. It also helps to answer a big question about the part of the cemetery he was buried in. Jane

Hannam Babies
Don -

There are now duplicate memorials for Charlene Hannam and John Joseph Hannam for the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Omaha, two by you, and two by contributor SRGF. One of you two contributors needs to defer to the other one, and delete the duplicates.

Errors on marker inscription
Hi Don,

You probably can't fix this but on mem #74107224, Eugene J. Drzewiecki, in Resurrection Cem, Toledo/Lucas/Ohio the marker is inscribed 1916-1983 but shows TEC5 US ARMY WORLD WAR I.

It should read TECS [Tech Sergeant] WORLD WAR II.

World War I was fought from 1914-1918; Eugene was just a baby then. Whoever inscribed this marker got the letter "S" confused with the number "5" on his rank and might have not understood Roman numerals that pertain to wars.

The Hannam babies

I sent the following message to your posted e-mail address, but apparently it has changed.

I have been working to unravel the Hannan gravesites in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Omaha. I am convinced that your memorials for Charlene Hannan (#34044392) and John Joseph Hannan (#34044396) are incorrect. In particular, they are not the children of my grandparents, Charles Vincent Hannan and Alma Hannan.

I have received the Death Certificate of Charlene Hannan who was born on May 21, 1932 and died on June 8, 1933. Her parents are listed as Charles Hannan and Irene. She appears to be the child of Charles Albert Hannam (note spelling of surname) (#153062395) and Irene Hannam (#153062417). The spelling is consistent with that on the gravestone. John J. Hannam is buried in the same location. John died on April 24, 1934.

The memorials for Charlene Hannam (#153189104) and
John J. Hannam (#153189160) were created by contributor SRGF, but contain little nformation. The memorials for Charles Albert Hannam (#153062395) and Irene Hannam (#153062417) were created by contributor MrsB. Can you contact these two contributors to resolve this?

It is odd that the Catholic Cemeteries records, the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery records, and the Death Certificate for Charlene all show the spelling of the surname as Hannan. Perhaps the cemetery records were based on the spelling on the Death Certificate.

William Edgar Loughmiller # 47849405
I am wondering if this was a different William Loughmiller, whose widow was Margaret L. (Patterson) Loughmiller (1922-1984), and had passed away years later (1999). I have strong reason to believe that William Edgar Loughmiller (d. 1981) died and was buried in Florida (#17829445) beside his wife, Irene M (Crangle) Loughmiller. Can you verify the actual death/burial date of your Loughmiler?
