Hello, Richard.

Milan has already called your attention to the fact that we both have memorials for Charlana Rawson. To simplify the record and merge our information, I would be happy to transfer mine (Find A Grave Memorial# 85257012) to you or receive yours in transfer. I defer to your pleasure.

Civil war veterans
I have seen the wonderful work that you have done with the civil war veterans. I am completing a book a friend started on veterans in Western MI. I am having trouble getting tombstones for unmarked graves. Would love to talk to you!

Hi, thanks so much for the memorial for Oscar Stout. Where did you find the record of him being a POW? He's my ancestor and I'd love to find out more about this. Thanks.
