Hi there,
In case you are wondering where most of your memorials and some of your photos went...I sent SACs to you for all the duplicates you created when you duplicated Old Bayview Cemetery under an incorrect name (which was fixed). You did not act on any of them, and after 30 days they were sent to Find a Grave to handle. As of today that has now been completed. That is why your numbers up above have taken such a hit. Figured you might appreciate knowing.

re: Robert E. Schuster
Also - I do know that the father, (my father in law), was married at the time of his passing and she never did contact his only living son, nor his daughter (whom I spoke about earlier). She purposely separated him from his children for some selfish reason. Thank you for your help it is so much appreciated.

RE: Robert E Schuster
Thank you so much.
Robert E. Schuster - there are two - the father who was my father in law -
and then his first born son, who died at the age of 3 years old.
I finally found the natural sister, and I will pass this on to her, she and I are working on the possibility of getting a headstone for the little boy (her brother) that died so many years ago. So sad that neither parent could or would put a headstone there to remember their own son.

When you are able, that would be so wonderful. God Bless You.

Beckie - (and Annette - the natural sister)

Duplicate cemetery
Hi there,
You have created a duplicate cemetery called Bay Shore, which is actually Old Bayview

A big problem since you have a bunch of photos out to transcribe, and those photos are already listed in their correct location.
I have asked for a cemetery merge, but you are going to have a mess of duplicates to deal with, as the correct cemetery looks to be nearly or totally done.

Thank you very much for trying to locate Isaac's gravesite. It is a terrible shame to hear that the cemetery is in such bad shape.

RE: 65824837
Hi there - I've transferred the memorials to you that you requested. :) (Just as an fyi, please be sure you request a transfer using the Edit tab on the memorial page. Some contributors don't acknowledge requests that are posted or sent directly through email.)

Hazel Shields
Hi :) I transferred Hazel's memorial to you. Let me say that you asked very politely and that's a good thing. In the future you should use the "Edit" tab and then use the "Suggest any other correction or addition" link and request that way. It makes it much easier for the trasferrer. Some of the more serious minded members of Find A Grave might ignore your request when it's left as a message. But not me. Have a nice day :).

RE: Alexander O'Neill

Here's what I've learned about Alexander O'Neill:

ALEXANDER O’NEIL was born in Ireland. He was 34 years of age when he was drafted in to the 90th Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, Company F, at West Chester, Pennsylvania. Alexander was described as being 5’ 8” tall, having a dark complexion, gray eyes, and dark hair. He was working as a sailor when he was drafted. Alexander transferred to the 11th Regiment on November 26, 1864. He died of consumption in hospital at Philadelphia on June 19, 1865, and was buried in the Mount Moriah Cemetery (Section 200, Plot 271), Philadelphia.

Here's his memorial:

Best wishes,
