Tannenberg again

This shows a series of photos. Near the bottom are several of the cenotaph stone for Ulrich von Jungingen.

Is the "cemetery" you created at Tannenberg the one I need to use?

Thanks again, Kendall

Tannenberg Memorial - location?
Hello, Russ! I found your memorial for Paul von Hindenburg at the Tannenberg Memorial and would like to create a memorial for at least one other person who is either buried or has a cenotaph there. However, when I check Wikipedia, the location appears to be different, rather in Olsztyn County, in Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship of Poland. (
I'm not sure whether I need to create a new cemetery for Ulrich von Jungingen, who fell at Tannenberg and who is said to be memorialized on the monument there, whether yours is the one I need.
Any suggestions?
Thank you!
Kendall Mellem

Alexander Mitchell Beattie
I have a photo of Medal of Honor winner Alexander Mitchell Beattie but findagrave has determined that no mores photos are needed. But there are no photos of him. Is there a way to add a photo of him?

Joseph Reed memorial #20308
You have posted a headstone photo for Joseph Reed memorial #20308.

I see that their daughter is on the headstone and I created a memorial for her at #132136741 and requested a photo. If you post your photo on it then you will get credit and I will get a photo. The first photo is the list has the clearest picture of her portion of the stone so that would be a great one to post. Thank you for all that you do for findagrave.

Randall Parker Cemetery, Davidson Co., TN
Hi Russ, I have managed many of the memorials in Randall Parker Cemetery in Nashville, Davidson Co., TN. I have the coordinates & directions to this cemetery & have tried to find a way to place this on the info for the cemetery. There doesn't seem to a way to do this for this cemetery. I have received many questions about the directions. Would there be a way to add the directions &/or coordinates to the cemetery? Below I'm sending you what I have. Thank you, Marilyn Whittemore Adams

From Columbia, through Nashville to Scottsboro
N 36 13.320
W 086 54.833
Elev. 466 Ft

To the Cemetery:

On Hydes Ferry Pike turn right by the Lewis Country Store (north on Old Hickory Blvd)

Go just a little ways and look for the Baptist Church on the left

Pass the church and about 300 yards, look to the right to a road by mailboxes and an old concrete bridge

Cross the bridge and keep to the right; you'll see an old metal sign with the name of the cemetery almost embedded into a tree

As soon at you come up to a clearing (just a short distance) you'll see the cemetery on the right; there is an access road through a private home driveway, but you can park in the field and walk up to it.

purchase by ancestry
It seems to me always said they would not sell out.
But have.
This has been a problem for me since bought
People think I am a relative of some sort to the entries I've posted at Which I am not.
And I am not an member.
I have photographed gravestones from about 40 cemeteries and posted to so people can find their relatives/ancestors.
Now that ancestry has taken over findagrave I won't be doing this anymore.
The new way to add info to findagrave entries is very handy but all sorts of people send along that info and when I click on Accept to allow it to be added, the person that provided it is not mentioned. It looks like I provided that info.
This is going to be a big mess! :-)

Copyright photos
If you can't help me, maybe you can pass this message on to someone who can.

Contributor Gayle 47879805, has removed messages I left her asking her to remove copyright photos she has added to memorials that I have created. I even quoted the rules from Findagrave so she wouldn't think I was being contrary with her.

Could the photos on these memorials be removed please?

I hate to bother the administrators with this, but some contributors just refuse to follow the rules.

Thank you for your time.

Capt John H. Vanderveer
Hello Russ,

I am researching Capt John H. Vanderveer and was so excited to come across your page with a photo of him! I have seen another close up photo of his grave though and the date on it appears to say 1866. Is there confirmation on his death date? Please let me know. Thank you so much!

Rich D.
Trinity in Swedesboro
Hello Russ! Just finished completely documenting the Trinity Episcopal Church New Cemetery (In Swedesboro NJ) and came across 4 names that are not in the new cemetery, they are in the old Trinity Churchyard. The owner of the memorials does not know how to change them because changing the cemetery is not an option under 'edit'. Can you help? Maybe you have the ability to change the cemetery? All the names are Jones, memorial numbers 43953461, 43953639, 43953593 & 43953528. They are in Trinity Episcopal Churchyard. Let me know if there is anything you can do before I have the owner create new memorials and delete the old ones. Thanks! p.s. I see you are in Gloucester County cemeteries quite a bit... maybe some day I'll see you out on a search! Rich.

John Richard Hunt.
Russ, could you add some, or all of the following data that I have, in my biography of Hunt, to your entry, please:

John Richard Hunt, born at Warwickshire, England, June, 1833 (his death certificate, however, shows place of birth as Dublin, Ireland); enlisted for nine months service, on September 3, 1862 (the New Jersey rosters, however, show his enrolment date as August 30, 1862), in company E, 30th New Jersey Infantry; discharged as a corporal on June 27, 1863; died in Sydney, August 28, 1911, and is buried at Rookwood; John's first marriage was to Eleanor Blue Hudnut, at Sommerville, Somerset County, New Jersey, on March 9, 1882; although he did not marry Eleanor until 1882, the United States census of 1880 shows that John was already living, as a butcher and farmer, in 1880, with 61 year old Eleanor, and her daughter, Temperance R. Hall, at Somerville, New Jersey; Eleanor died of pneumonia, at Bridgewater township, Somerset County, New Jersey, on March 3, 1883; a short note, in a Sydney newspaper in March, 1885, indicated that John was already a resident of Sydney, by that time, as he was assaulted, and the perpetrator was sentenced in a Sydney court; second marriage was to Ione Helen Townsend, at Rooty Hill, New South Wales, on April 20, 1886; there were two children from the second marriage – Walter, born in November, 1886, and Florrie, born in July, 1891; John held the occupations, in Sydney, of builder and carpenter; suffered, in his later years, from rheumatism, which he attributed to the hardships of campaigning during the Civil War; died of arteries sclerosis andcardiac dilatation, at the Rookwood Asylum, Sydney, on August 28, 1911; buried at the Rookwood Cemetery.

[Civil War Veterans in Australia,compiled by Mrs. Virginia Crocker, and published 2000; Record of Officers and Men of New Jersey in the Civil War, volume 1, page 928; 1880 U.S. Census; Sydney Morning Herald (New South Wales) dated Friday 6 March, 1885, page 4; Pension file of John Richard Hunt; death certificate of John Richard Hunt.]
