Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an avid genealogist going on fourteen years. I have extensive trees on most of my family lines and am exploring for more nearly every day.

I will share any information I have with all researchers and am a staunch advocate of public family trees and open genealogy. I see no reason for researchers to have "private" information of deceased family on a public web site dedicated to information sharing.

If information in a private tree is incorrect, you will never have the opportunity to correct errors and will pass those down to future generations.

I hearby grant full permission to anyone to copy my photos and memorials for the sake of future generations.

RE: Lettie Robinson Dean Pollitt
Leanne, since you didn't create the memorial you will have to request that findagrave delete it for you...,
Katrina is fantastic at helping...

RE: Stiles graves in Glenwood
I recently photographed the graves of Stiles, Roswell David 1868 - 1945 and wife Dora Ardean Pollitt 1878 - 1964. There were 2 additional grave markers so close to theirs that they appear to be family. One was John H. 1861 1945 and the other, Eva J. 1867 1966. I would like to make memorial pages for them but have no idea of surnames and family connections. I've attempted to look them up on but so far have been unsuccessful. Any clues? Perhaps you are related to Dora?

RE: Lettie Robinson Dean
I didn't mean to be rude or abrupt. Findagrave has the following on duplicate memorials and this is why I sent the message to you... sorry if you were offended but I follow their protocol as close as I can:

Why are there multiple memorials for the same individual? How does Find A Grave handle duplicate memorials?
Because so many people add data to Find A Grave, there are often duplicate cemeteries and duplicate memorials added. This is a very common situation and is quite difficult to resolve in a way that keeps everyone happy. Before adding a memorial, you should search the cemetery to see if a record with that name has already been added. If you are adding a memorial for someone who does not have a physical grave or memorial marker in a cemetery (perhaps their ashes were scattered), please do a general search on Find A Grave (do not enter a location) to see if a memorial has already been created for that person. If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. You should never deliberately create a duplicate memorial. In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location. If a case of duplicate memorials falls to the Administration, the Administration will have the final word on which memorial is deleted and which data will be retained in the remaining memorial page. There are some situations where an individual (usually a 'famous' individual) may have more than one memorial page, because their body was buried in one location but a cenotaph or second marker/memorial was also placed in a second location. NOTE Jan 25, 2013: If there are two memorial pages for the same individual, and one has a Lost at Sea designation, and the other gives the location of a cenotaph or memorial marker, the memorial page with the Lost at Sea location may be merged into the memorial page with a physical cenotaph stone or memorial location.

RE: A subtle clue about Marceline
I will check on a memorial I have which could be Caroline but it has a mystery also as in the cemetery book it shows her married to Stanley Whitehead but then again remarried later to a Barrit which I could not find anything to prove that info. I did find the marriage of Stanley Whitehead to a Caroline Parvin January 30, 1886 FC, IL & before that a Carolena Dean marriage to Freelinghysen Parvin February 9, 1867 FC, IL but the 3rd marriage could be a fact but I have no proof available as of yet. I will go ahead & transfer that memorial to you. Barb

RE: A subtle clue about Marceline
LOL What a terrible tangled web people weave! Ok Thanks for the info. I know sometimes things do go haywire with families & records. I'm not at all surprised. Are you wanting the surname "Whitehead" as I found some in Mason Co., IL. Barb
