|Dave Rice||Marilyn L Kerr transferred|
Although I am disappointed by your request, I understand that there may be valid reasons to delete a memorial. Because you are Marilyn's widower, I am transferring management to you, and you can do with it what you wish.
God bless you.
|Dave Rice||RE: Marilyn L. Kerr|
Hi Mr. Kerr,
I am sorry for your loss of Marilyn. I am also sorry for any additional pain caused by posting her memorial to Find A Grave. Please understand that I posted her memorial out of respect for her memory and to be a blessing to those who knew and cared for her.
Please also understand that all of the information in the memorial was already published on the internet. Names of her survivors have been removed from her Find A Grave memorial, although they may still be found at other internet sites.
Let me know of any further action that you would like me to take.
Sincerely, Dave Rice
|DBT||RE: Cemetery listings|
No, I do not have an interment log. I wish I did not only for the Morehouse cemeteries but, others. Although I do have that information for other cemeteries. I went to Morehouse/Morehouseville area and visited two cemeteries. I took pictures of every visible stone in each cemetery. I then mined Herkimer Historical Society, Norway Historical Society, New York State Library, my copies of the books, Herkimer County History and Norway Tidings and the internet for any scrap of information I could find. I went to Herkimer Historical Society, Norway Historical Society, New York State Library and looked at their records. While mining the internet I did come across your contributions to Hamilton County GenWeb site. Feel free to update your information with the information I have added to Find A Grave. If you need an obit for documentation, just ask. There are many cemetery lists for Spruce/Mountain Road Cemetery and other cemeteries. The problem I find is that none of them are complete and most have errors. When I am mining I tend to lean toward obituaries for information and try to find multiple sources for verification. Although in some cases the obituaries do not match up with the dates on the stone and sometimes they say that the person will be buried in one cemetery and they are buried in another. A picture of the stone is proof of their burial site unless, they have two stones in two different cemeteries. Which Find A Grave calls a cenotaph. When I am researching a particular family and I find a burial site I will add the name and research later. That was the case of the Reymonda/Remonda/Raymonda family because it was part of my family database. I hope this has answered your question.

Actually Eunice (Find A Grave# 29121973) and Howard are in Fairview. Back in 2008 I researched the Caldwell and Remonda families at the Blasoe Library, Herkimer and the Herkimer Historical Library. Growing up I did not realize that Aunt Fan had lost two children tragically. She had a son who fell out of a tree while hunting and Eunice. After reading all of the articles I felt sorry for the 3 boys especially James, the oldest, who is a year younger than I am. I am one of twelve children as was Fannie (Find A Grave#50117344) and my grandmother, Mary Elizabeth. My grandfather, Duane Odgen Bronson was one of nine. Fannie was the baby of her family and she was what they called "a pistol". You never knew what she was going to do. I know there is alot of information about the Remonda family on line. Based upon obits and other information it is probably 95% accurate. Because we all come from large families there is always someone to keep everyone up to date on what is or has happened. I haven't linked up all of the Caldwells and Remondas yet. But because you made me go back and see what I have, I will be doing that in the future. Since you are a "shirttail" relative as my grandmother would say, I have no problem sharing information with you. I would prefer to do it via my e-mail and not in a public forum. If you want me to transfer your grandparents to you let me know.

Thank you for the corrections. Dion was a typo, should have been Ilion, Conklin was how it is spelled in the obit. The obit did not mention Fred but, I added him. Eunice Caldwell was a daughter of Fannie Roby Caldwell, my aunt.
