John Winchester Comfort
Hi! Thank you for your bio on John W. Comfort. I strongly believe he and my husband, David M. Comfort, may be related as my husband's family migrated from NY to PA and on to MI.

Do you have any info as to John W. Comfort's family tree?

Thank you,

Carolyn Comfort

Questionable actions
I recently received a message from a distant relative to transfer a memorial back to her and it was brought to my attention that a lot of her work has been lost on find a grave by a member merging cemeteries and some seem to be made up. I looked into the members profile and there are quite a few people complaining about the same types of actions , adding confusion and questionable entries. I have not contributed a lot myself but my distant relative has done a lot of work on your site and it is sad to think someone is doing things either b/c they just don't know , just entering hodgepodge info or just manipulating info maliciously. You would be a better judge of that than me. So I'm asking you to check out member # 47272624 there's a lot of messages from members complaining about cemetery merges. Thank you for your time.

Shane Hall
Bob Denver and others
I'm curious as to why celebrities often don't list their parents, siblings and children's names and other info that is normally in an obituary for "regular" people. And in Bob Denver's case, why is he not listed under his real birth name?

The proof is his 1891 will which bequests 100 a year for life of his sister Margaret Booth Roberts, the known daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth Booth.

This is the proof that he is also brother to Gen.

Isn't the purpose of Find A Grave to find people's graves ? I've noticed most of the celebrity posts for 2016 have Unknown for grave location.

Pvt. Louis Till
I'm curious as to why the first word in the information on Pvt Till is "Criminal"?? You gave the details, but was it really necessary for the very first word to be "Criminal"?? If that is the case, then I think there are many, many, of these Find A Grave posts that need to be edited, with the first word being "Criminal". No way am I minimalizing what he was executed for, although I have no way of knowing if he actually committed the offenses he was accused of. I think the post for Pvt. Till should be edited, deleting the first word of "Criminal", which I find very unusual, and unnecessary here. Thank you.

Sidney T. Holmes
Russ,

I have some information that Sidney T. Holmes lived or stayed in Grand Rapids 1873-80. It seems he owned S.T. Holmes Planing & Sash, Door & Shingle Mill on Grand Rapids West Side Water Power Canal in 1873. It was the first factory to be entirely operated by wheelhouse cable power. By 1876 the mill was producing picture frames, moldings, etc and partnered with Francis A. Parker in Holmes, Parker & Company.

Have you or anyone you've been in contact heard of his investments in Grand Rapids, Michigan?

Thank you!
Jim

Hi Russ,

I am writing to ask you to transfer my great, great uncle, Memorial# 100239255 (Joel Smith Harris), to my care.

I somehow was able to add him to my findagrave memorials before I knew about yours.

Thanks very much for all your good work on behalf of veterans.

David Passman
Lt. David Edmonds
Russ,

In your bio on Lt. David Edmonds' Find A Grave memorial, you provide a link to Sgt. Jerome B. Silverman's memorial. Jerome's father Harry and my great-grandmother Tessie (Silverman) Passman were brother and sister. The book, American Jews in World War II, Vol. II, compiled by the Bureau of War Records of the National Jewish Welfare Board, c. 1947, lists two Jerome Silvermans from New York (page 444).

The first appears as:
Silverman, Jerome, 1st Lt., Bronx, A [Army], DFC [Distinguished Flying Cross], AM [Air Medal], 1 OLC [Oak Leaf Cluster].

The second appears as:
Silverman, Jerome B., Sgt., Arverne, A [Army], PH [Purple Heart].

The grave marker of Jerome Silverman interred at Arlington National indicates he was a captain (the next rank above a 1st Lt.), and his marker includes the following designations: DFC, AM (which agrees with the information provided in the cited book), as well as, indicating he was a prisoner of war.

The first Jerome Silverman (and whose link you provide) served as an officer during World War II, while Jerome B. Silverman served as an enlisted person. I have not located the burial site of my relative (03 Feb 1923 - 20 Mar 1993), though I am quite sure he is not the same Jerome Silverman buried at Arlington National Cemetery who is linked to Lt. David Edmonds' memorial. The birth and death dates clearly indicate there are two different Jerome Silvermans who served from New York. In the bio provided, Jerome B. Silverman clearly served in the capacity of a sergeant, not that of an officer, neither a first lieutenant nor captain.

Hopefully this message will provide some clarification.

Best regards,
David Passman

Capt. Samuel Smith
On Dec 6th you responded to my request to release Capt. Samuel Smith to me. You requested that I contact you "directly." I did so via this message board on 12/7/15 & via email. I have not as yet heard back from you. If there is another "direct" method that you would like for me to use, please advise. Sam Smith is my relative, distant as it may be. I would like to connect him with my other family members and add factual historical documentation to his memorial.
Thank you. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=10324826

Mark Maxwell
Adm Philip C Johnson # 75468874
Russ,

This is a famous memorial.

The bio is very misleading.

"During the last war he commanded two different Union navy ships against the Confederacy, including the famed "USS Constitution", which he held command of from April 1864 until February 1866."

The above makes it sound like he took the ship into battle which is far from the truth.

He took command of "Old Ironsides" on 16APR1864 while it was in Newport, RI as a school ship and Plebe Dormitory for the United States Naval Academy that located here throughout the Civil War, until 16FEB1866. The ship was under his command when it was returned to Annapolis after the war ended.

I hope you can use this information to correct the current paragraph in the memorial.

Thank you.

Mark

Hi Russ, hope all is well. I did a little looking into G L Andrews wife's profile, and I could see that he had Navy and Union Army titles, but he was made a full General before death. I tried to leave a note on the profile so you could go right there, but I couldn't. Happy Holidays, Jacki :)

Plagiarism Qestion
I belong to a facebook page that has taken screenshots of Find A Grave pages and given not credit to or link to the memorials that the admin has posted. I think this is blatant plagiarism. I have asked that the photos and memorial pages be linked and or the photos that are posted be sourced in some way or another. Could you please provide some insight into this for me. I want to make sure that the proper thing is done and I want to be able to give the admin some type of statement regarding the work we do here on this site. She doesn't really understand the amount of time and energy that goes into this website and a little common courtesy if nothing else to give credit where credit is due. End of RANT.... :)

Edits received...
I thought you might want to know that when people leave edits for me, I never receive an email notifying me that they are left for that memorial. All of a sudden I come on the website and they are just there.

Also, will we ever get ways to add brothers, sisters, grandparents, etc? Many people that have added memorials have dropped out, or died. There is no way of knowing. There is no way to link family, or to make edits when there is no one to contact on these inactive memorials. Just wondering if you have any solutions. I would really appreciate your input. Thanks a bunch, Jayne
