RE: delete duplicate memorial
Meg married my first cousin, Henry's son Johnnie fairly recently and I had never met her until Mae's funeral. She is quite a likable young lady.

delete duplicate memorial
Dr. McDonald: The memorial you created for Henry Joseph Carnley in 2016 duplicates one Donna McPherson created in 2010. As hers was the earliest may I have your permission to transfer info from your memorial to hers and delete yours? Thank you.

Mary Frances Brown

You made a memorial for Mary Frances Brown which does not include the name of the cemetery. Someone else created a memorial for her with the name of the cemetery and a photo of her headstone. Both memorials include her obituary.

Find A Grave Memorial# 103874464

Would you please delete your memorial?

Thank you

This Memorial made us all cry. GoFundMe page mentioned a headstone but not a location. We will let you know if we find the location. Thanks

RE: Delaney Farrell
Oh thank you! I found it - and also discovered the Find A Grave site will not show memorials on the "burial unknown" - so that makes sense, as to why there would be duplicates. There will likely be many more, because I searched PA.

But I shouldn't get started on the burial unknowns --- I don't normally add "Burial Unknown" because it is the grave location I am looking for. If my family member or friend, does have a burial unknown (cremated) then I do add this as a memorial, because I personally know the circumstance. Many people are adding burial unknowns, just to have many others do the leg work of finding the grave location. I have had many memorials I personally created with burial locations and even pictures, that i had to delete due to someone adding a burial unknown, and they see my burial location and change theirs. I take my memorials very seriously, and I thank you again for pointing out the others.

Thanks again for the information. Delaney's death was tragic. And personal to me in so many ways. May she rest in peace.

Edmonds, WA
