Marjorie Reeves Aikins-Neely #71181352
Hi - I put in an edit to change her last name to just "Neely". There are several reasons.

Neely is the name shown on her stone and in her obituary and was her last name when she passed.

But most important, when we have a memorial with a hyphenated last name, if you search for her memorial using either of the two names, she does NOT show up under either.

Thanks, Lisa

RE: Adams Children
You have to reduce the size of the picture to their recommended settings in order for it to upload on their site. If you don't know how to do it and crop it, you can get around it by taking the picture and scanning it on your computer for jpeg setting and it will put it in your document folder. Then when you go on to Find A Grave to upload it, click on documents, and click on photo that has been saved to your computer and it will upload just fine. I had to do that on earlier pics when I joined findagrave. I have learned since to set my digital camera setting to vga for picture taking. It will upload in seconds and not over a minute on Find A Grave. And I can take the most pics at this setting - over 62K it shows. I use this same setting for all pics I email & it works fine.
Happy picture taking!

your Mom's memorial
I've tried twice to transfer this memorial but each time the email brings up a woman's name. I went on and transferred the first time, but I got an email saying this wasn't her mother. Any ideas what to do?

I took a photo of her gravestone and thought you'd want to know that the birthdate is different than the entry on the memorial.

RE: Bryan and Adams
Please go to Mary Ann's memorial and use the EDIT tab to make your request. It will take me directly to her memorial.

With as many entries as I have, I can't remember where any particular person is buried. So looking for them can take time... and especially these days I don't have much time as I am very weak from my treatments. I try to get on here once a day, but it is usually for maybe 45 minutes or so then I have to quit. I am still linking and updating but thru edit tab only, and with the memorial numbers and relationship (mother, father, etc.) supplied. It helps in getting the links done quickly so I can get to more requests in the short time I have.

Thank you for understanding,

Zorababel & Sarah Hall Martino
Hello, Roy!

I am also one of your many Martino cousins, but I am in Ohio. I am descended from Zorababel Martino's younger brother, Joseph Martino, Sr., and his son, Joseph Martino, Jr., who never left Ohio.

I did make a correction to Alice Alena "Lena" Bowman's notes; she was the granddaughter of Zoro and Sarah Martino rather than their daughter.

Also, do you suppose that Frances Mary "Frankie" Martino was instead Mary Frances "Frankie" Martino as she is listed in earlier censuses? Also, do you think she could have been born in 1864 rather than 1865? Just wondering as there seems to be a discrepancy among several records giving her age.

You may contact me at I would love to hear from you and am so happy to have found your memorials at

Best regards,

Your cousin, Joyce Appelfeller Rarick

Granddaughter of Anna Mae Martino Appelfeller and Great-granddaughter of Joseph Martino, Jr.

re: Hardin Jackson Reeves
I searched Missouri SOS Databases and did not come up with a match for his name. You may want to contact the local historical society in the county where his wife's death occured...they may have information regarding his death.
