You may use any of the headstone photos that I have posted for any research that you would like.|
PLEASE USE ONLY THE EDIT BUTTON FOR SUGGESTIONS/CORRECTIONS AND TRANSFERS AND DO NOT POST THEM ON THE MESSAGE BOARD - THANKS!
If you post a photo to a memorial that I manage, PLEASE submit an edit request so that I can add any details that are different.
If any memorial doesn't yet have a headstone photo, please put in a photo request. It's the easiest way to confirm dates and spellings of names.

|Rick Petersen||Request for 4 edits for Evers|
I’m responding to your request for 4 edits for the Evers family.
I am pretty new to genealogy searching, and have been using Family Search for most of my research. An obvious issue with the info you find there is its inconsistency: U.S. census info can vary by year and give different estimated birth years, names, spellings, etc., for the same person. In the case of John Evers, I find estimated birth years for 1849, 1850 and, on a copy of his death certificate, 1858. I went with 1858, since his death certificate would seem to be the most authentic. For Caroline, I could only find a middle initial of H, and I could not find the specific birth date. For Louis, I could only find the birth year of 1876, which was on a photocopy of his draft card, which he himself signed, which, again, would seem to be pretty authentic.
So where are you finding your information? If you’re using a resource with more accurate information that what I’m finding on Family Search, I’d certainly use that site. I’d like to know more before approving the edits. I just want to get it right, since these particular Evers are my kin.

On the Josephine Lawton stone is an inscription that I can't quite read. Maybe your photo has greater clarity.
"Our children Bill, Patty, ____, _______ ( I think there are two names there)

wife Josephine (Brazda Maiden) Lawton #132909830
Thanks for your kind deed in taking the above tombstones.
I tried to send information to the person that created Josephine and found you had already sent info.
I hope this is what you sent.
B 31 Oct 1916 NE

Removed the initial B and showed her maiden name as Brazda.
Thanks for everything.

Thanks again for another great photo and for uploading it to both memorials. It's crisp and clear and will be appreciated for years to come! Enjoy a beautiful autumn!

Many thanks for fulfilling my photo request. I really appreciate you doing this for me.

Thank you for submitting name and birthdate corrections along with headstone photos for Eva May Hollis Retallick. Once I made the corrections I discovered another memorial had been made a couple years prior so I transferred your headstone photos and submitted birthdate information to that memorial and I gave you credit for the photo submissions. I have deleted my memorial for her according to Find A Grave guidelines. Thanks again and Happy Hunting!
