For some reason my email would not connect with your g-mail address.
Sorry for the for those two entries, can they be deleted? Don't know why they sent before I could write the message.

Rod Garner
Find a Grave #37885875
Hi Susan,
My name is Rod Garner. My Grandfather was Frederick James Garner, brother of George W. I have a couple of corrections to George W.
His middle name was Washington, as was his father John's middle name.
John Washington was born in 1846
Mazie Ethelwyn died in 1938

Thanks for putting up the memorial. I have a lot of Garner relatives in the Salem area, but I have not had the chance to investigate the Claggett Cemetery.

Janette Donaldson Pugh, can you read her birthdate on the grave, another birth date 28 December 1798, in ancestry. You list an obituary, do you have a web site, or can you provide a copy, or any access. Unable to enlarge photo, can you send a larger photo of her grave marker.

Tammy Gephardt
Virginia C Martin
Good Morning! My name is Tammy Gephardt. I just thought I'd let you know that I sent you some updates for Mrs. Martin's memorial. I got my information directly off of the 1900 Census for her birth Month and for her death information, came straight off the Death Index.

RE: Amelia Eckert family
Thanks for accepting edits and updating her memorial page. Yes, I noticed too in Amelia's obituary, that it stated Jacob was Amelia's adopted son. I pondered that, then decided it must have been a misprint. Instead, Jacob was her adopted GRANDSON. Jacob is now linked as the son of Robert Eckert and Elizabeth (Maschmeier) Eckert.

Not related, just researching after stumbling upon an obit for Robert Eckert, while looking for a totally different name in newspaper archives.

Then, what a pleasant surprise to find and be able to link these two families.

Thanks for all you do on Find A Grave.

Loiza Rose at Claggett Cemetery
Hi Susan,
Just an FYI -- I can tell you absolutely that Loiza Rose and her mother, Elizabeth Peckinpaugh Rose, are not buried in Claggett Cemetery. Larimore will be unable to provide any sustainable proof otherwise. They simply are not there. Recent Rose burials have begun to show up on Find A Grave close to where they were documented to have been buried some time ago. As always, your call though.

Best wishes,

Orr Daniels, 16202226, Claggett Cemetery
Hi Susan,
I am wondering if you would be agreeable to the transfer of Orr Daniels to me as I have quite a bit of information I can add for him? If so, my contributor number is 47297998. In anticipation - Thanks.

Hope your research is going well. Mine has finally concluded and I am cleaning things up and passing along information.

Best wishes.

Hogate and Martin
Hi Susan,
Please excuse the intrusion -- just wondering if you received an email from me that I sent to your private gmail account? I have been having significant issues with my internet service so sometimes emails don't go out or come in.

The jist of the email was that I just learned Hertha Martin is the mother of the Hogate men buried in Claggett Cemetery's Hogate family lot. Her memorial says her relationship to the Hogates was unknown so I thought I would pass the info along.

Best wishes,

Lola B. Liedtke (14966541) and George Glen Liedtke
Hi Susan --
Just discovered that Lola's middle name is Bernice. Do you know anything about a previous memorial for George Glen Liedtke - her husband? My search engine pointed to a memorial at Claggett but nothing came up. Based on information I have, I added one for him along with burial site information. If you know something I don't and I need to remove it, will you please let me know?
Hope your research is going well.

Best wishes,
Liz Weddle

Julia Kerndt
Were you looking for Julia Kerndt, wife of Gustave ? She is buried in Oak Hill in Lansing, Iowa. I have the photo of her headstone & created a memorial for her.
