George Farber
To Ronald Steward 47070117 and MJ 47376145:

It looks like you both have created memorials for George Farber, they look like the same gravestone, and birth/death dates are the same, but it looks like two different cemeteries with similar names but in different cities. Can you please check these to see which cemetery is the right one? The memorial numbers are: 55476632 and 69942212. Thank you both!

Suggest you delete the memorial 69892767 for Conrad Gutermuth in the St Johns Cemetery, Cottleville, MO. There is already a Conrad Gutermuth in the Cemetery. The dates for the above memorial match Donna Lynn Gutermuth. Must have been confusion when entering.

Anna (Andersdotter) Benson
Anna was a niece of my grandfather - Peter Thurstenson. Actually Anna's parents were double half siblings of Peter's. Anna's Father, Anders was son of his and Peter's father. Anna's mother (Hanna Persdotter) was also Peter's mother. When their spouses died, they married each other. Sometime before or during the parent's courtship, Anders and Hanna married so we have an interesting combination of relationships developing. Peter came to USA first, he then helped one of his half sisters and several nieces and nephews come to USA. Anna was one of these kinfolk of Peter's. Peter was the only child of his parent's marriage so he was growing up as a younger brother of his 9 half siblings. Anna's three brothers were among those Peter helped come to Nebraska from Sweden. Your family and my family are the only descendants of this family in the USA - thus my interest in communicating. I would be interested in e-mail contact with you.

picture of Mr. & Mrs. John Fehl, Sr.
Good morning,

I found a wedding picture of Mr. & Mrs. John Fehl, Sr. that was taken in a studio in St. Charles, MO. I found this picture at an antique mall in Washington, MO.

I noticed you had a memorial page for John Fehl and that John & his wife are buried in a cemetery in St. Charles County.

Are you related to them? If so, would you like this picture, I would love to return it to their family.

Farmington, MO

duplicate memorial
I would gladly delete my memorial for Louis Joseph Zerr. All I ask is that you read what is on my memorial # 96783866 and incorporate it into your memorial for him. He is my 3rd great grandfather.

Ben Benson & Anna
I see you are maintaining Ben's Find-A-Grave Memorial. Are you kin to them or do you have connections to the family? Anna (his wife) is niece to my grandfather, Peter Thurstenson (Per Jonsson). Peter helped bring several of Anna's brothers to the US and they remained in Burt County, Neb. I have tried repeatedly to communicate with some of Ben's descendants but have not been successful so I continue my search.

RE: Caroline Endicott Memorial 70955114
Hi MJ,

Thank you for your response, no need to apologize. I am still having a hard time putting the Endicott family together. Could you email me directly so I can explain what I have found and get your thoughts on it? No hurry, I'm going to be 70 and I am retired so I have lots of time to work on this stuff. Genealogy is so fascinating.

By some chance do you be long to

John A Endicott and Amanda Arnold Endicott

Could you please remove the memorials you created for John A Endicott (70937328) and Amanda Arnold Endicott (70937172). They are not buried in the Ridgely Community Cemetery. They are actually buried in the Antioch Cemtery in Gower, Clinton County, Missouri. Amanda is my 1st cousin 2x removed.

Thank you,

Caroline Endicott Memorial 70955114

The Caroline Blankenship Endicott I have in my family tree was born 1832 and died Aug 6, 1911. She was married to a James L Endicott. I have a death certificate that says she was buried in the Paradise Cemetery, Paradise, Clay County, Missouri. Her father was listed as S Blankenship and the informant on the certificate was J H Endicott who I am assuming was her son James H Endicott. There is a memorial #17462267 that was created on Jan 15, 2007.

My Caroline is the mother of John A Endicott 1867-1949 who married Amanda R Arnold 1866-1940. Amanda is my 1st cousin 2x removed. John's death certificate has his mother and father listed as James Endicott and Caroline Blankenship.

My question is could your Caroline be a different Caroline Endicott because the ages are different.

I have made photo requests in hopes the headstones will solve this problem. If your Caroline is the same person it is a duplicate and needs to be removed. If she is not the same person then John A Endicott is not her son and James Lewis Endicott is not her husband and that will have to be corrected.

There are a lot of Endicotts and I am having a hard time putting the correct families together. Any help you can pass my way will be appreciated.
