Oliver A Day/ Susan Mary Williams
Are you related to Oliver and or Susan ? I am looking for a tie to the family thru who I believe is their son's wife. Charles Day was married to Katie (Catherine) Wainscott Day. She is buried on our family homeplace and just trying to place her.
Thank you for any and all help.

The Find A Grave # you have for Joseph McDaniel #47503019 seems to be a duplicate for the above number. Both men have the same name and duplicate records for their service in the Civil War, including enlistment and discharge dates.

Joe McDaniel has a traditional stone in Crawfordsville where he is buried with his wife. I found Joseph in Santa Claus, IN when I saw that a military headstone was ordered for the Mt. Zion Cemetery there 30 years after his death. Any ideas on this mystery?

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Lindley Cemetery
I was wondering how to go about correcting the town for Lindley Cemetery? It is located behind the Greenlawn Cemetery in Greentown, rather than in Kokomo. I have many family members buried in both.
I've not run across this before.

Lindley Cemetery
50 N at 750 E
Greentown, Indiana
Liberty Twp., Howard Co., Indiana

58th Indiana Infantry
I am beginning to build a virtual cemetery for the 58th Indiana Infantry and found you have also begun one. I've found over 170 memorials so far (with the addition of ones from your virtual cemetery that I didn't already have). Feel free to add them to your virtual cemetery.

If you're still adding to your Civil War virtual cemeteries, here are a few more names:

Robert Crane alias Wing 36th Indiana ID 164624176
Willis Slavens 51st Indiana ID 120090527
James Harvey Slavens 51st Indiana ID 16208675
Milton Slavens 51st Indiana ID 147255969

The Slavens boys are half-brothers of my great-grandfather. The Crane is some degree of cousin to his mother.

Lt. Robert Harvey

Would you kindly please transfer Robert Harvey's Find A Grave ( #38054494 ) to myself ( #49042161 ). I am Robert's 3 times (direct descended) great grandson.

I am new to Find A Grave and have found the situation that many of my relatives have already been posted. I'm trying to gather my direct ancestors and of course Robert is one of them.
Twenty years ago this cemetery was one of those forgotten cemeteries. Over grown with weeds and poison ivy. George Garrott, my wife and I restored it.
As a genealogist I will be posting additional information.
