Duplicate Cemeteries & Memorials
Sigh, sorry, had those dates reversed in previous post...it is the first one #16452209 created in 2006, and the other one # 90904286 created in 2012. Just fyi.

Duplicate Cemeteries
Just FYI- Since you are listed as a F.A.G. Senior Curator; I recently came across duplicate cemeteries in Virginia created by F.A.G. contributors which has a least 50 of the same people listed. One is called "Shiloh Church Cemetery" and the other is called "Shiloh Baptist Church Cemetery". The first one with memorials was created on F.A.G. as early as 2006, the second contributor failed to check closely enough and duplicated many memorials by creating the second cemetery on F.A.G. using a slightly different name , and listing many of the same people already listed in the first one. Someone needs to merge all those duplicates. I am seeing a lot of that type of duplication actually, as F.A.G. becomes more and more popular. One reason for the error was that the same cemetery is listed by these contributors as being in two different counties (the county line ran right by the cemetery, apparently). As one example of many duplicates in these 2 cemeteries, refer to Find A Grave Memorial# 90904286 in Shiloh Baptist Church Cemetery in 2006, and his duplicate memorial #16452209 entered in Shiloh Church Cemetery in 2012. I have alerted the creator of the cemetery and memorials done in 2012, and she confirms being now aware of the prolific duplications she created but declines to take them down or merge then using the edit function to the original memorials. Therefore, this is one of the rare instances when I think for the sake of accuracy and trying to keep this site from becoming cluttered with a proliferation of duplicates, the F.A.G. admins should step in to do some cleanup work. Thank you.

Patrick Henry Pentzer
Don't know if you're aware, but Wikipedia has pages dedicated to the Medal of Honor recipients. Even though Patrick Henry Pentzer (memorial #19580) is listed there is nothing submitted regarding his service and reason for being a recipient. Thought you'd might like to submit your info from his memorial. He is one of three who were recipients that had ties to Macoupin Co IL. One of the other two (David Dickie) has info linked to his name and I am working on the other one (Richard H Wood).

I am not related to Francis W. Reeder. I just had a copy of his obit and his birth date and noticed that the death year was incorrect, so I sent thru what changes I had available to me.

Sir, I attempted to add a correction to the above named memorial and the county list(s) of counties in Ireland won't let me pick the county of Antrim or the county of Down in Ireland. Apparently these 2 counties are the only counties listed for the city of Belfast Ireland. I searched "EVERY" county listed and none came up with the city of Belfast. The memorial number is 71604260. This was driving me crazy. Thank you for your help.

Corp. William F. Steinmetz
Since it's your photo on the Memorial for Corp Steinmetz, why don't you just download it and then upload it to the other two Memorials. William is at http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=14634392
and his two daughters are linked to him(Mary D and Clarissa B). :-)

Corp. William F. Steinmetz
Russ,
I sent you an email asking you please post your photograph of the gravestone you had posted on Corp. Steinmetz' Memorial to the Memorials of his two daughters who are listed on the same headstone. You replied by asking me, "Is he an ancestor of yours?" and I replied, "...very distant ancestor/relative of a paternal uncle's wife..." Am I correct in assuming that, since he is not related directly to me and since the Memorials were not established by me, you are not going to post your photograph on the Memorials for his daughters Mary D. and Clarissa B. Steinmetz?

Lost Password
Russ,

My mother is a contributor to the Find A Grave website and has been for a few years now. Recently she had a computer glitch and is unable to access her account. She does not know the password to her account and the email address she used when setting up the account has been disabled by Yahoo for inactivity. She swears she had changed the email on the account to her new email(she's 73 and not getting any younger). When I attempt to do a password recovery, it does not recognize the new email address, but when I try to recover using the original email address(the disabled one), it send an email to the old password. She can't access that email because it's disabled.

What can we do to get access to her account? Please help if you can. She's driving me crazy!

Bing Crosby's Daughter
Susan Ham Black Bond. #15887798
I believe if you go take a look at Memorial you will find that this Can Not Be his Daughter. she was born (1828) before Bing was born (1903).She was Born before either of Bing's parents were born. Harry Crosby (1870) Catherine Crosby (1872).
I believe that this mistake needs to be corrected ASAP, please.
thank you , janey

There is no good image of O.H. Perry in the closed photo set at his memorial site. I have a very good one that I would like to post in lieu of the very small image that lacks any detail. It is a cropped version of the image at this link:

I was just wondering since you do a lot of Civil War guys if you can find any info on William Rose Asay for me.Ive been trying to find where is is buried at but no luck.He died in march 1901 I believe in Newark NJ in a civil war home.Then his orbit says he was laid out at William H Dubell (his brother in laws) home in Bordentown NJ.Private interment.Censes say he lived in Trenton with his son & Daughter before going to Newark.Its been driving me crazy to find out where he is laid to rest at.lol Any info would be greatful.Thanks

Russ,
Thanks for responding - I'm sure you're super busy! Lol - by 1812 Joseph had earned his "desk job". Let me know if you are short of time and want me to write the bio. I appreciate your response.

Joseph Bloomfield #4820
Russ,
Joseph served in the 3rd NJ Regiment in the Continental Army with my 4x great-grandfather Timothy Sexton. He was wounded in the Battle of Brandywine. I think your bio makes it sound as if he was a paper-pusher who was never in a real battle and maybe it should be fleshed out a bit to include more details. :) I am inspired by your Civil War Virtual Cemeteries, so I am beginning one for the NJ 3rd Continental Army. Thanks.

My pleasure. I visited Laurel Hill Cemetery for the first time last week. I didn't know that it was your "home base." I would have called and tried to get together with you.

Your email
Russ, I don't know if it is connected in anyway with the software issues mentioned by others, but I tried to send you an email to your Find A Grave address and it keeps coming back. I tried info@findagrave and it seems to have gone through.

On a separate note, I want to call your attention to two ACW Union Surgeons not currently in your VC. Charles McMillan (Memorial #49256987) and William DeLong (Memorial #124420536)
