Thank You very much for the transfer of the memorial for Meritt Cuppernell. Gail Herbest.
|CAS||Theodor Tesch # 7789487|
I will decline your suggested edit on the place of death for this memorial. I have his death certificate which clearly states he died in the township of Lebanon in Dodge County Wisconsin.

|Paula Evans||My Uncle, Duane F. Eckerty - Memorial# 180028940.|
Hi, My Uncle, Duane F. Eckerty 1919 - 1988 - Memorial# 180028940. When you get a chance, can I please have gravestones photos of him? If you find his grave there but no headstone due to his (non-marked) empty grave there, can I please have photos of it anyhow, too?If you were unable to find/locate his grave there, please kindly ask for help there. Please kindly respond for me asap? Thank-you.
|Tom Richardson||Gemeroth, Gemroth Gravestones|
First of all, thank you both for your outstanding and continuing work with Find a grave and other endeavors to keep our historical roots alive. Quick question, In all your work documenting gravesites in the Flattville, Illinois and surrounding areas, did you ever come across gravestones with the following names or potential spellings: Gemrod, Gemeroth, Gemroth, Germeroth. I finally located the obituary for my 4x Great Grandfather (William Gemerod) and it stated he was buried in Flattville. I have been to Beckman Cemetery but before I knew that he may be buried there. I know it was probably the only one around when he passed in 1896. I would appreciate any help or info you could provide me. Again, thank you for your continued work...Tom
I have been trying to link my families graves and noticed that you have Berwick Keeble memorial. He is one of the son's of my great, great grandparents. Would you mind transferring to me so I can connect and add more info?
Thank you for all your work! It is greatly appreciated!
|Barbara Muir||Re your Photos on Find A Grave|
Hello Russell, Many thanks for the wonderful work you and other Find A Grave contributors do by taking photos of Grave Markers. I wonder if your photos are copyright or can I share them on my family tree on Ancestry.com. I will give you the photo credit eg Photo Credit: Thanks to "Russell Kasper”, Find A Grave Website, Photo used with permission. Many thanks, Barb Muir Gillespie-from Australia
|tbickellb||William D. Matthews|
You very kindly left a photo on a memorial for William Matthews (Memorial #20693199), but I believe it is the wrong William Matthews. Your photo should go on the memorial for Lt. William D. Mathews (Memorial# 3674765).
|Laurel Shimpfky Marcucci||Transfer?|
Would you be of mind to transfer Mayme Shertz to me? 67287521 She was my fathers cousin. I have her obituary and other family info I can add.
