Hi Bruce,
I'm so sorry to pester you, but I would appreciate it if you would remove the b&w photograph you posted of my mother on her memorial. I have posted a better resolution color version of the same photo but am unable to remove the photo you posted. Thanks so much!

RE: Joseph Stevenson phots
Bruce, there can be no photos of Joseph Stevenson as he died in Oct of 1832. The first successful photographic process was daguerreotype. It was not available until after 1839. The tintype I have shows Elizabeth Stevens Stevenson and two sons (probably). She can be positively identified. I don't know about the other two in the picture.

RE: Anna Hansen Black
Thanks Bruce! It's too bad they only allow up to 5 spousal links from one memorial but as long as the 6th spouse is linked from her page, she will always occupy the 6th spot on William's page.

Now we just need to wait for TJ Yahoo to unlink Amy Jane Washburn Black from her page.

Anna Hansen Black
Though findagrave doesn't show it, my edit request is to remove the spouse link on Anna's page so that she can be linked to her husband William from his memorial page when it's time to edit his spousal links. This way, the spouses will appear in order of marriage on William's page.

Thank you for your efforts. Are you sure Sara wasn't born in Maryland? All of her children list her as being born there on the census.

Annie Maria Black #12779024
I have taken a headstone photo of Maria H Black who is your Annie Maria Hansen Black memorial #12779024. I notice you already have a headstone photo but it is not facing the sun so is hard to read. My photo is taken so the headstone wording can be read. I would like to replace your photo with a new one but the memorial already is at its limit of # of photo's allowed. Would you prefer that I send you my photo for possible substitution or would you be interested in deleting your headstone photo so I could add mine? Either way is OK with me. Let me know at or follow-up with a response on findagrave, please. P.S. She is not linked to her husband William H. Black? Thanks, Shirl
