correcting info
I want to correct information as to the name of an individual's father. Raymond O. Kidd had Theodore as his father, he was not. The father was never identified. Rose and Ted were not around each other at the time. I am his daughter.

Edit time
Hi Russ,

I was wondering what the typical turn-around time is for an edit. I've had one pending since mid February.

Richard H. L. Chichester, III
Wife of Charles Francis Adams
Russ, do you have a photo of the gravestone for the wife of Charles Francis Adams 5/27/1835 - 3/20/1915 (#7338000).

She was Mary Hone Ogden, of Newport, R.I., daughter of Edward and Caroline Callender Ogden and is buried beside her husband. I could find no memorial for her so I created one based on a wide shot of the plot posted on Henry Adams memorial (#113967392) which shows her buried just to the right of her husband.


If you do, could you upload th the above memorial?

Thank you,

findagrave used for a shady purpose?
FYI: The below-named person contacted me and asked if I would contact her thru personal/ private e-mail. She said she was representing someone looking for his family/ parent. I contacted her, as directed, and she said something about this person she represented wanted to know if his parent had a drug history. She never responded back when I didn't provide any such personal information. I could undertsnad someone looking for his/ her biological parent, but this contact person's query appeared shady and she never responded back. (I could provide the e-mail she sent me.)

Her info.:
Hi Donna,
I'm a volunteer genealogist assisting someone who is researching the Krock families that lived in CA. Since you indicated you knew Doreen I have a few questions to ask. Thanks in advance for your help.
