Eugene M. Fortner # 151925513
Hi Lisa, it's been awhile since we talked, I hope you are well and on the go. The family of Eugene Fortner requested a photo of the new bench that was placed on his grave to be added to his Find A Grave memorial. Let me know if you were able to get the photo and possibly forgot to add it.

Thanks, Lynda

Reuben Allen
Hi Lisa, I saw a request for a photo of Reuben Allen's grave at Sandy Creek Cemetery in Orleans County NY so I walked the entire cemetery today trying to find it to no avail. When I checked the cemetery records they have no record of him being buried there (and none of the Allens buried there are related to him: I checked all the cemetery records for Orleans County and he is not listed as being buried in this county.I even checked the census and he is not listed in Orleans County. I see a Reuben Allen being buried in East Sweden Cemetery in Monroe County but the dates do not match (Died in 1822 aged 56 years). So when I checked Ancestry it forwarded me to your memorial which says he is buried at Sandy Creek -- was wondering where the info came from as he is not in the cemetery's records? Just want to clear up the mystery. Thanks!

Wayne Augustine
additional information on memorial
Hello Lisa: I appreciate you good work! I am researching members of Civil War soldiers that served in the Civil War in the US Signal Corps. One of the Memorials that you manage is Dr Charles S Taft who was the Chief Surgeon of the Signal Corps during its existence during the war at Georgetown DC and was one of the attending Doctors
at Lincolns death. It was stated in you bio of him that he was a field Doctor whenall of his actual service was in the Georgetown, DC camp of instruction of the Signal Corps. Please, at your convenience, correct the bio and attribute his actual service to the Signal Corps would be much appreciated. You have my very best regards for all the wonderful work you do in memorializing those that served, Wayne Augustine, Chicago, IL

Jonathan Melvoin
Hi Lisa,

I was a friend of Jonathan's, and was at his funeral. First of all, thank you for including him on Find-a-Grave. I noticed you had the burial listed as "unknown." Jonathan was buried in the Riverside Cemetery in Lincoln, NH. I hope that helps.

Changes to a cemetery name
Hello, I found the burials you had listed in Italy, including Rosa Cleveland (sister of the president). I just wanted to pass on the info regarding the name of the cemetery where she and a few others are listed. It is not the American Anglican Church Cemetery in Lucca, Italy. Instead it is the English Cemetery in Bagni di Lucca, province of Lucca, Toscana, Italy. The cemetery was founded in 1840 after a couple requested permission from Duke Carlo Ludovico of Lucca to build an Anglican church and cemetery for the many English who frequently came to the town for the hot springs. I have a few others buried there that I want add, but noticed the issue with the cemetery name and place. Thank you for getting these individuals online. There are 139 burials there, the last in 1953. Thank you for the work you have done on this site.

RE: Oaklynn Cemetery
Hi Lisa,
Thank you for your help..
Was the county able to give you a list of the burials?
We are trying to find deeds for the plots, but that's going to be a long job as nothing is indexed.
So far we have found nine veteran's graves including a couple that no one knew were there.
I have to post a lot of new names and pictures but I'm not 100% sure how to do so.
Thanks again,

Ralph James in Ye Old Cemetery in Danville

My message for a suggestion on this was directed at the person who submitted the photos as I don't believe they are photos of this cemetery. When I look in the death records online for Ralph James it states he is buried in the High St Cemetery in Hampton, NH. There are some others photographed by Amy that are also not that cemetery. I've been trying since early 2013 to get her to contact me about where they are supposed to be from with no response.

Anyway, if you want help with the death records to find these let me know and I can help you find where they really are.

Have a great day.

Oaklynn Cemetery
Lisa A group in Edgewater, Volusia County, FL is working to clear Oaklyn Cemetery. This cemetery is totally overgrown and most of the crypts have been vandalized. I noticed on this site that in 2004 you located many graves that we cannot now find. I wondered if you had information about the cemetery and where those plots might have been located. Any information would be greatly appreciated. We have people who have parents and grandparents buried there and cannot locate them. The cemetery is on privately owned land and the owner locked these families out in the 1960's. It is only recently that they have been allowed to go in and begin the cleanup.
Thank you very much,

Eugene Mitchell Fortner
Lisa, I had the nicest e-mail thanking me foe adding Mr. Fortner's memorial. Eugene Fortner # 151925513. In part she says:

Your doing a memorial quickly helped my sister Bobbie so much. She has saved it in her favorites so she can daily see it. They were married 65 years and she is having a hard time adjusting at the age of 83 without her lifetime partner.

I read your Bio and know you only can do this in your free time, but if you should be in the cemetery again photographing, I would greatly appreciate if you would take another photo since she installed the bench that she wanted a place to sit and talk with him. It is so wonderful to know the love between two people continues even when one is taken.

I cherish the FindAGrave site and am so grateful to all who volunteer and contribute. Many, many thanks.

* I wanted you to see how much you are appreciated! It's a really touching story and I am happy to share Mr. Fortner with you!

Find A Grave Memorial# 117395209
Hi Lisa, I'm interested in the source of your information on Darlene Butler. I've been trying to get a listing of people buried at Garfield which is completely abandoned and overgrown. A Mrs. Hardin in Enterprise was doing research and preparing to write a book but passed away before she finished. Her husband, reportedly, has her research but doesn't seem interested in sharing. She supposedly had a list of 86 people buried in Garfield. I would like to interest our Gen Soc in restoring the cemetery. I would love to know of any information you have that would help.

Tara Sidorowicz
Hi Lisa, I just found where you had posted a picture of my mom's grave (Jackie Suzette Sidorowicz) at Deltona Memorial in Deltona Fl. and was wondering if you couldn't get my dad's grave and my grandpa's grave as well? They are both in the same cemetery as my mom, Deltona Memorial. I've not seen these graves since I was a child because after my parents died my grandma moved us all to NC. It would mean so much to me to see their grave sites again... My dad's name is Lawrence Joseph Sidorowicz and my grandpa's name is just Joseph Sidorowicz I believe? I also have great grandparents in that cemetery by the name of Joseph Sidorowicz, Lawrence Besterman,and Florence Besterman... Just if you wanted to take more pics!! LOL Thank you for your contributions to this page as it has meant a lot to me to see my mom's grave again!! :) Merry Christmas!

RE: Butch Lindley photos
Memorial 9762797

Can I make use on Wikipedia of the photos you added to the Butch Lindley Find A Grave memorial?

If so, can you let me know if they're your own work, or tell me the source? Naming the source to ensure no copyright violation is a requirement for adding photos to Wikimedia Commons and then including them on Wikipedia.

I've made some edits to the Butch Lindley Wikipedia page. I plan to continuing to make improvements, including adding a photo or photos.
