Memorial for Annette Ammerman (1904-1926)
I do not know which George Ammerman is Annette's father.I entered the information from her obituary. Three brothers, Harvey, Joseph and George Jr. survived her. A sister, Dorothy Crisman. also survived. There was no information about Annette's mother. I hope this helps.

Parrs: William Gilmore, Samuel Wilson, James B.
Hi Mike,
I have been trying to get my relatives linked to each other in Find A Grave, and have found that William Gilmore keeps getting listed as a HALF-sibling to Mary, Sarah Jane, James B. and Fletcher: he only has Samuel listed as his parent, but could you please add Nancy Carrick (Memorial# 148718839) as his other parent so he won't be a half-sib to the rest.
I am also starting to try to get my relatives transferred to me, especially the ones descended from James B. and Elizabeth Fidelia. I see that you created Samuel Wilson Parr's memorial (THANK YOU!), and I wonder if you would transfer him to me? I remember you once suggested that I take some of my Parrs, and I finally am at a point where I can do that.
I see that you also have James B.; I could take him too, unless you want to keep him.
I am trying to do a memorial for Edward Fletcher Parr, but can't figure out where he is buried (d. cert. says somewhere in St. Louis).
Remember way back in 1993 when I first found the Parrs at Evergreen? I looked at my copy of the cemetery information they gave me back then and discovered that they listed an "infant" named "J.H.", who was buried April 6, 1887, the day after Mary. So it appears that John & Mary also had a son, probably born about 1885. Unfortunately these older records got "lost in translation" in their record keeping.
I would have sent this to you by email but am having trouble with my computer.
Hope you & yours have had a good winter!

Elizabeth Messer 174631896
Just an FYI-- The cemetery did not have a record for Walter Herman Messer. There were not any nearby markers with the same last name either.
