RE: Definition of
Hi, Brett,
Welcome to FindAGrave. It's a great site. When I find someone has created a FindAGrave memorial to a relative of mine, sometimes I want to be able to add information, links, data, a biographical sketch, etc. then I ask them to transfer management of the site to me. To do that I click on the Edit button then select the "Suggest a correction" link. That lets me write a note to the personal who is currently managing the memorial, asking that the memorial be given to me to manage. I tell them how I'm related and give them my user number so they can make the switch easily. Most of the time they give it to me quickly.
Enjoy the site.

If you would like pictures for these as well, please create memorials and let me know.

George Henry Simon
Hi Brett - Well here's what I can tell you about his military status. I took his memorial information from the genealogical society records of burials in the Inman North Cemetery. They had that notation. Then Barbara Bowman photographed the monument and I see the evidence the genealogical society relied upon. The iron star to the right of Mr. Simon's side of the marker is a GAR insignia. So he was in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Civil War. Could have been any of the military units on the union side of the war. Let me know if I can help more. Joe

RE: Oscar Simon & Transfer
Hi Brett!

Yes, we have exchanged messages through ancestry.comm in the past. I have transferred Oscar's record to you. Good luck with your family search.
