Hi, Russ,
Just thought I'd check to see if you gave permission for your headstone photo on memorial # 12932 (Adm Kirk at Arlington National) to be copied to memorial # 124984104 (Lydia Kirk, Adm Kirk's wife)?

FINDAGRAVE listings missing
Jus wondering what happened to the listings I provided for the John Bates Family Cemetery (originally shown as John Bates Jr) that I provided back in Fall 2011, may be Spring/Summer 2012. From member, it seems I provided the first one but it was in a different spreadsheet columns than you required which took me several months to generate thus levying out considerable information from the first spreadsheet. It may take a while but I may be able to find the second spreadsheet.

A second facet of this cemetery is much later I discovered that this same cemetery was know as Reeves Family Cemetery and in attempts to contact the originator found that he is deceased with no one as that one's present administrator. I have talked with a couple of other Reeves Researchers and we have come to the consensus that there is no documentation for either name except within family stories. By studying an old plat map of original owners, it seems there is presently no way to ascertain which family's property the cemetery resided with the very distinct probability that it may have been on both properties at the time of origination (abt 1830),

By this, is there any way these two cemeteries can be combined to be called Reeves-Bates Cemetery with AKA for the other two names?

Hi Russ! I notice you have listed, at the top, Eliz. Stein. Brin. McC. 1800-1889, & farther down, under 'Sib.s', E.S. B. M. 1800-1889. Something in there seems off somehow.
Also: Please, if you can, send me any info you have about her life. Thank you! Happy Thanksgiving!

Ooops! I, too, am a Find A Grave volunteer. I want it to be clear that I do not expect you or anyone else to go tromping through the snow or in the blistering cold to fulfill a photo request! :) It can wait for better days. Thanks!

I have submitted a photo request for the above headstone. I think John may be the husband of my ancestor, Catharina E. "Kate" Barlow Bowen. Hopeful there may be more info on his headstone and/or there may be one nearby for Kate. Either way, can you direct me to a source to learn more? How do I access the Civil War pension records? Any guidance appreciated. THANK YOU, whatever the result, for your hundreds of volunteer hours and your dedication to memorializing our country's veterans in particular.

My name is Judy Zunker. I am a member of find a grave, but my e-mail address has recently changed.
It WAS Now it is: I would like it changed on my profile page and anywhere else that it is listed wrong, but you don't have a link for this.
How do I change/update my e-mail address so people can find me?

There are several things wrong about my family and I need to get it straightened out, but don't know how to do it. I seem to come across roadblocks wherever I go.

Thanks much
Thank you for fulfilling the photo request for Dorothea Manger at WLH. I truly appreciate your making the effort, and posting the photos with a very clear explanation of where her unmarked spot was in the lot. I had hoped whoever might photograph her place of rest would be greeted with an elaborate marker since her husband was a noted sculptor, but alas, no such luck... But very glad to have closure on this. Thanks once more.

Mt. Moriah Cemetery
Hello, I am interested in visiting Mt. Moriah Cemetery and would like to ask you a question. I saw you took pictures there and was wondering if you knew what times and days the main gate is open to the public. I live two and a half hours away and would be making the trip just for this cemetery. Thank you!

Oct 26, 2014: I just got a pop up that this site has malware...better check it out.

Also, I have gone to several people that were entered by Ralph Brown and there is a message that he was removed or something. It is my understanding that he made an error one time and someone complained. Is there no room for human error. He dedicated his life to adding information to this site as well as travelling as far as Canada to get it. I do wish you'd reactivate him.

Thanks for all you do, this site is so great.

Brilliant Idea ;)

First, thank you for all you and your team do. It is a wonderful service to many.

I'm kind of new to geneology, so you may have already had this idea, but I was thinking...

Why not do a Facebook/Instagram campaign every Halloween?
You guys work with the spookiest thing there is: Cemeteries.
Why not hype it as something like:

This Halloween, do something really spooky and help people looking for their long-lost ghouls at the same time. Just snap and post the ghosts in the graveyard near you...or are you too scared?

You could have a link to your site, and how to easily take pictures. I would do it, but I'm still figuring out Facebook ;)

Thanks again for what you do!

Brinton S Buck, Private 1918
Russ, I find a great article in on the last letter written by Brinton to his mother. According to it, he died July 29, 1918 and buried in France, but must have been brought back in 1921. Are you interested in the article? Paper of Feb. 24, 1919 Phila. Inquirer. Also, in the Laurel Hill listings the 1918 stone is pictured on Burton D. Buck, d. 1939. Jane

Leslie Erin Mahaffy's Memorial
Hi, Russ!
I don't know whom to ask, but since people have messaged you about Find A Grave questions here, I hope you don't mind if I do too. In the past week, Leslie Mahaffy's memorial has been taken down. Can you shed any light on this subject? It was created about a decade ago and had about 1,000 virtual flowers. Someone submitted a new memorial with a famous status and it was approved a day or two ago, is it be possible to merge the two memorials. I wouldn't want all those beautiful virtual flowers/tributes in Leslie's loving memory created over the past decade to go away. I'm not 100% sure, but I'm pretty sure I was the sponsor of her previous memorial. Thanks in advance for any or all your help.

Cemetery location
Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery in Winona County MN is incorrectly listed as being in New Hartford which is 6 1/2 miles east of its actual location in Dakota MN. I have been there many times, the most recent being this summer when I photographed the entry gate and some of the same headstones that are supposedly in New Hartford. I hope this can be corrected for the sake of those who will be wandering around New Hartford looking for the cemetery!

Love Find A Grave and thanks a bunch.

information about a non deceased person

I am writing to you to hopefully get some information on a message removed. My estranged mother is posting information on my grandson and daughter that is not public information. Also it is not information given to her by me or my daughter. So I am copying and pasting these messages to hopefully have them deleted. My estranged mother has never met my children or grandchild and we appreciate any help in this matter.

Here are the messages:

Still in our prayers
I have to tell you your great-grandson makes me green with envy. I have a new great-grandson also. He was born on Labor Day last year. I have not physically seen him yet. Conner and his parents live in Maine, alas I reside in Nebraska. Really, I'm happy that you are able to have Jovanni for a time. I know he is good medicine for you. Enjoy him and the rest of your family while you can. They grow so fast and move away so quickly to start their own lives. You and Clair are lucky to be so blessed. You are always in our prayers. You have given us all strength and courage. Now you take strength in God and us that all things happen in their due time. Keep believing in the power of prayer.
Sunshine and Rainbows from Nebraska,
Mary and Family

RE: Still in our prayers
Oh I wish you could be with your great grandson too. I know he would bring you great joy. Jovanni really is good medicine for me and has kept me going.

My family has always been so close, many people who know us comment on how they wish they had a close family. I worried about when our children grew up they might move miles away from us. They all live within 6-10 miles away from us. We really are blessed.

When my parents were alive the children and I was at their house every day. The only time I missed was when we went on a vacation. Then they wanted us to call everyday so we did. Keep the prayers coming I need all the prayers I can get. I was so blessed to live in a Christian home. Hugs, Ann
