RE: Frank & Cassandra Whiteley
THANK YOU sooooo much for transferring my GG Grandparents to me. It is much appreciated. I have already started adding photos and bio's etc. I appreciate so much all the hard work you have done on find a grave.
I did have a question about Frank (Francis Marion Whiteley; memorial #157897100) Did you see a grave or memorial for him in the Pioneer Cemetery? I had read that he had been moved to where his wife is, and I haven't been able to go to either location, so I was unsure about it. If you have any further information, please let me know.
Thanks again VERY much for your hard work and for the transfer!!!

RE: Memorial 111309758
Done as per your request. But you would be surprised how many don't know that and ask for them to be posted. I wish all states had them available on line like Missouri. There are many I would like to have in Kansas for my wife's kinfolk but we're not going to pay $15.00 apiece for them. I have had many messages the past 4 years thanking me for posting them. However, I have no qualms in removing them when people ask.

RE: Henry and Catherine Webster
My proposal for the family tree is this:

William Henry Webster married Catharine Hickey (#27870018) and had the following children:

1. Bettie Webster, b. abt 1852 (#27870045)

2. Alice B Webster, b. 17 OCT 1853

3. Isaac Newton Webster, b. abt. 1856 (#174313813)
m. unknown- possibly married prior to Ellen H.
m. Ellen Hurley (#27870128)
m. Angeline Fadeley on 6 May 1902 (#162729428)
**I can't find that Ellen Hurley married Patrick Tobin. If this is accurate, then she would have married Webster after 1888, and then Susan & Mick can not be her biological children.

4. Jennie Webster Landes, b. 1 APR 1856 (#154884417)
m. David Landes on 22 May 1886 (#17668926)

5. Mary E "Molly" Webster, b. abt 1859
m. William Deeds, m. on 20 Jul 1880
m. James P Brown, m. on 27 Oct 1883

6. Ida E Webster, b. 21 MARCH 1869 (#157501430)
m. Samuel David Pittington, m. on 17 May 1883 (#99829907)
m. John R Landes, m. on 27 Apr 1901 (#157501225)

Catharine is living with the children in the 1870 Census, but husband not listed. I would guess "Henry" died about 1865.

Of course, I leave it to you to confirm my recommendations. I've not make any of these connections via Find A Grave, except for the spouses. I'd hate to have made a mistake and then need to undo all the links.

RE: Edits
"very happy to hear her parents were Henry and Catherine. So, you are able to read. There is an edit button on the memorial, my suggestion, USE IT. You did not have the courtesy to supply memorial numbers or locations. Have a absolutely wonderful day, Roy"

Mr. Roy -THANK you for reaching out to me in regards to my suggested updates. Please be assured that if I was able to FIND their graves I would have added their corresponding Find A Grave # so that you could approve the connection.

Unfortunately, after searching I'm unable to find their profile. Forgive me for thinking you'd be interested in helping family members to connect their genetic "dots" by listing their names on the profile since Find A Grave#s are not available at this time.

In my brief time submitted information, with and without Find A Grave#, are you are very first person to come back with this kind of response!

I have to assume you are mostly interested in "collecting" profiles instead of trying to promote genalological research.

May you have a wonderful afternoon.

PS: And, yes, my parents taught me to read... and so much more. Sorry for your loss!

Hoping for some clear, sunny weekend before winter makes me hibernate for a few months. Still have about 40% of Lakeside left to photograph.

Hello Roy,
My grandmothers siblings daughter Anna-Greta Brandt born Jacobsson was married to Oscar Brandt (earlier married to Pauline).
How are you related to the Brandts and what do you know about Oscar Brandt?

Hi Roy,

I noticed you left flowers on my parents grave, Thank you but I don't recall your name in my Family Tree. I am just curious who you are, maybe a cousin of mine that I don't know.

Hoping to hear from you.
