re: rec. #55478175
record for ROSE HAMMIL MURPHY #55478175

the correct spelling for this is ROSE H A M I L L MURPHY. When this record was created the incorrect spelling of her maiden name was entered. I know this to be true since she is my great aunt (grand mother's sister.) I would appreciate it if you could correct the error. It should read ROSE J. HAMILL MURPHY. The misspelling makes it difficult to link it to other records. I would be happy to take over the management since she is a blood relation.

Thank you!

Marian Frances Sheridan Inman
I was wondering if you are related to Marion Frances Sheridan Inman #54620159
I know its a long shot, but you have additional information abt her then what is on the stone. She is my first cousin 2x removed on my Sheridan line. I have been researching the Sheridan's for some time, and hoping to find someone from the Sheridan's that might be able to help.
Thank you Donna Darmody McGinty

Sibling Data For Katherine Vaske
Not sure that I completely understand all of the astericks that occur for sibling data BUT on the site for Katherine Vaske and all of the sites for the her children -- siblings astericks seem to indicate that they are not necessarily full siblings.

I think you have to be the one to change the information as you supplied the original data -- is that correct? All of the siblings ie Joseph Henry Otto Vaske: Bertha Vaske: Eleanor (Vaske) Schiltz and Julia Marie (Vaske) Murphy are all full siblings and not half siblings.

I am a son of Eleanor (Vaske) Schiltz and nephew of her siblings (obviously) and I have known these people all their lives.

If you could make those changes (on all their sites) I would appreciate it.

Any questions? please contact me at

RE: Huglen
You are welcome.

I walked the West Prairie Cemetery - Leland. Ole Huglen #158493668 and his wife are buried there. I took pictures. Can you edit their memorial #63429251 at West Prairie cemetery - Thompson, that you entered, to the Leland cemetery. Their names are already in that cemetery, but was entered in 2016. You can ask the creator there to delete them. I will then enter the pictures. Let me know.

Hi Merrill. I went to the library and looked in the West Prairie - Thompson cemetery book. There is no Ole or Sophie Huglen listed in it. I could not find the West Prairie - Leland cemetery book, to check if their names are in it. I see on Find A Grave that another Hugelen is buried at the Leland Cemetery.
