Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will be glad to make changes, corrections, or add new material if you send the information along on the edit tab.

Please don't add obituaries or death certificates in the photo area of memorials I have posted as it leaves no room to add personal pictures or grave photos. I will be glad to add additional information in the bio area if you will just send it to me.

Thanks so much.

RE: emails-memorials in Clarion Cemetery

Out of curiosity, you said that "some of the suggestions are impossible" - could you at least provide one example so I can check it out and understand why what was suggested is impossible?

Maybe that will help me with the others that are currently open.

Thanks so much.

Edit Corrections

Just a follow-up. Maybe to clarify something, you do know that I do not have your personal e-mail.

When I send a "Suggestion Edit" Find A Grave actually sends that suggested edit to your personal email. I never see your e-mail address, only internal to Find A Grave is that "Suggestion Edit" send to you.

The other Edits (Name, Dates, Plot, etc.) are sent in a similar manner.

The only way I have of communicating edits, like duplicate memorials, or similar changes, is through the "Suggested" Edit link.

Its Find A Grave that has your e-mail to forward the suggestion. You must be receiving them since I did have one Contributor that is inactive and has disconnected his e-mail - in that case I got a failure notice that the Suggestion could not be send from Find A Grave.

Would love to work with you on the remaining memorials in question for the Clarion Cemetery. Thanks so much.

RE: emails-memorials in Clarion Cemetery

My e-mail is

If you don't want to use that (or have me know your personal e-mail, I fully understand).

I would very much like to work with you to resolve the open issues that I send via "Edits" on each memorial in question. I tried to give you as much information as possible (like the Wilson's that were really Reed's).

I will go through the list and find the ones that you have closed. If its ok, I'll send edits on the others with more detail.

I think on one of the first ones, I included my phone number in Clarion. Please feel free to call me if you want more information.

Last check, we were now down to only 50 duplicate memorials or open issues! Thanks for all your help with this project.

Love the kitty profile pic!
Was doing some edits [to one of your memorials] and checked your profile. My profile pic is my cat Snowflake who lived to 19 years 1 month. What a personality he had! ;-)edie

Mary "Polly" Caylor Dinger
Hi LSmith:
I have a question about Find A Grave #62925313, Mary Caylor Dinger. On Find A Grave, you show that Susanna T Brillhart is her mother. I am wondering where you found this info as I am at my wits end with this.

In the book "Brillharts of America" page 95, there is a Susanna Brillhart that marries Henry Caylor but it implies that they met and were married in Rockingham VA and later moved to Ohio. It also lists their children, none of whom were in Ringgold PA or married to Jacob Dinger.

I'm hoping you've got a source that I haven't yet found because as of now, I'm fairly confident that Susanna Brillhart is not in my Dinger family line.

thanks for you help and I appreciate all that you do to help document these cemeteries!

Findgrave photos
Hello, L. Smith,
What is your policy for others using pictures you have posted on It's always so exciting to find pictures of gravestones, and others, on memorials to people in your family, and it would be nice if we could use them in our genealogy, also. Please let me know; proper credit
would be given any time a picture is used, of course! Thanks for all you do on!
Blessings, Ruth M. Thompson

Penny Hartzell
John Emory Hartzell
To the contrary of his grave stone John Emory Hartzell the son of Jacob Hartzell and Fanny Schall was born 8 June 1887 and died 20 November 1946. This is according to his death certificate #94635. John does not appear on the 1880 census which he would if he were born in 1878. And he appears as a 12 year old with his widowed mother on the 1900 census.
I'm not sure how we rectify a 1887 birth with the death of Jacob Hartzell, his father, in 1885.
Regards, Penny Hartzell
