Bio and Links
Bio Photo I first got involved with Find A Grave while researching my ancestry. I have found this to be a very useful and respectful site, with, for the most part, very approachable and helpful members.

The surnames in my lineage are: Aiken, Gray, Blumenauer, Schaeffer, Monroe, Holtzberg, Smitley, Gerberich, Miller, Lowery, Wise, Jenkins, Hester, Weathers, Kline, and many more. These family lines are mainly located in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana.

Please know that I appreciate everyone who responds to one of my requests for a photo or a link on a memorial, SO much! I work on "projects" in different locations from time to time, and enter a number of memorials while doing this, that I don't always get to thank each of you separately. Please understand, I mean no disrespect. I appreciate any and all help very, very much!

If I have entered a memorial for a relative of yours, that is not a relative of mine (or is a closer relation to you than to me) I will gladly transfer ownership of the memorial over to you. I enter a memorial to honor the person, NOT to increase my numbers. Please just contact me and let me know that you are related.

Also, I never intentionally enter a duplicate memorial. I do try my best to make sure one has not already been entered. If you find that I have entered a duplicate, please let me know and I will remove it, and will provide any additional information I had entered on mine to the original memorial.

If you would like to contact me directly, you may email me at aiken(dot)cari(at)gmail(dot)com.

One other note: if you send me a message or suggest a correction, but provide no way for me to respond to you by not allowing messages on your profile, I will ignore your request. I have had several people leave some particularly rude and incorrect suggestions. If you cannot communicate like a mature, polite adult then please do not bother contacting me.

RE: Re: Blumenauers
Glad to be of help. I also posted the photos of the memorials of John Theodore Blumenauer (August 1944-Oct. 1944) and T. William Blumenauer, Jr. and his wife, Julia B. Thanks.

Thank you for transferring my family member to me! You truly don't know how much it means to my family and I. Also, thank you for the time & effort that you so generously put into F.A.G.

Civilla Boyer Ackerman
There seems to be an error in the Obit. for Civilla Boyer Ackerman. She is buried in the IOOF cemetery in Berlin Somerset Co., PA. Not the Mt. Lebanon Cemetery, in Northampton Twp., Somerset Co., PA

Photo Claim
Greetings Cari,
I noticed that you had claimed the photo for Edmund Groebli in Kentucky Veterans Cemetery West. I took a photo of the marker this past Thursday not realizing that you had claimed it. If you have any problems fulfilling the request, please let me know and I will take care of it.

Cari, are you related to Elizabeth Inks? If not, would you consider transferring it to me. I am related to her and would like to connect her to her parents etc.

Thank you.

Please check the photo to see if you agree it is correct? I am not sure. If not, I will move it and post it.

Photo request success!

Thank you for helping me, your time & efforts are greatly appreciated.

Seeing military markers for our veterans, always cause me to pause and reflect upon their role in keeping our country safe.

Thank you for posting the close up marker photos and then the general setting photos.
