Memorial# 90634304 and # 90634253
Thank you for your attention to these edits. I have now completed linking four generations for a friend's parents' memorials to her 2nd Great grandparents (Irish Immigrants) including all five of her 2nd Great grandparents' children.
Very much appreciative.

Please check Memorial #87767300 for Franklin P Holmes. The death year is listed as 2005. My research indicates that he died in 2008 which is verified if you look at the headstone close. I would appreciate it is you would check it out and correct it if you agree. Thanks! Brenda Joos

Your work is greatly appreciated creating the memorials for Matthew Mannix and his wife and child. Thank you. His history will be great to share with his generations of descendants.

Florence and Leland Kneller
Greetings Helen

Many thanks for taking the time and trouble to create Find A Grave memorials for Florence M Mason Kneller
(#111740122) and Leland Carl Kneller (#111740303) who are buried at Bradford County Memorial Park, Bradford County, Pennsylvania and for the grave photo posted onto Florence Kneller’s page.

I have just posted a photo request for Leland Carl Kneller and as his name is quite clearly shown on your photo (once it is enlarged). I wonder if you would be kind enough to ‘claim’ my request and add your photo to his page as well.

I would also be most grateful if you would allow me to illustrate their pages on my Ancestry tree with your photo. I shall, of course, be happy to credit you with taking the photo and for giving me permission to use it with the caption ‘Photo taken by Helen Kiessling (Find A Grave) and used with her kind permission’. I hope this will be OK.

Thanks and best regards,

Jack Huffman - 87011277

The photo that shows the names of children for Jack Huffman is incorrect. That photo belongs with his daughter's memorial. She is Edith Marion Huffman Wilcox, memorial 87011276. I am acquainted with the family. Alan was a classmate of mine.

Thank you for all the contributions you have made to Find-a-Grave.

RE: James Hawthorn
Could you put this short Bio in?
James and Mary Ferguson Hawthorne were both born in County Armagh, Ireland,
near Belfast.They came to the United States of America in 1842. After
spending a short time in Passaic County, New Jersey, they came to Troy, where they met O.P. Ballard, a mill owner, who loaned them money to buy a tract of land at what is
now Windfall (so named because of a tornado that felled many trees).

RE: James Hawthorn
Thank you for the change. From the angle of your pic it is hard to distinguish the 6 from a 0. James Hawthorn is my husband's great great grandfather. He was an immigrant from County Armaugh, Ireland.

James Hawthorn
I sent you an edit request for James Hawthorn, windfall cemetery, suggesting to change the date of death to 1886. I have examined the stone personally, (this is my husband's Great great grandfather) and notice that last number to be a 6 and not a 0. He does show up on the 1880 census but that was completed in June. If you require more proof than my personal observation, I will try to continue to dig for something that can give me his year of death. Thank you in advance.
