Abel Allison Lewis
Hi Miss Davis. I'm an amateur genealogist but I've spent several years trying to find the parents of my G-G-G Grandfather - - his name was Allison Lewis - born in either West Virginia, Pennsylvania or New Jersey. By any chance, would you know if Mr. Abel Allison Lewis or any of his children settled in or at some point lived in either of these states? This man has been quite the challenge to find. Thank You for your time!

Thank you for the updated information you supplied on FIND A GRAVE.
I am not related to any person whose memorial Iíve posted and have no problem transferring any over to a relative or friend.
Keep up your great work.

RE: Flower with bio information...
Yeah, I know they delete the flowers but it doesn't stop me from saying "I stopped by and visited the memorial" ...

RE: Flower with bio information...
Just a kind question of why would you care that I put bio about his purple heart in the flower section ?

RE: Flower with bio information...
LT Jacob Wilson Parrott Find A Grave Memorial# 19152. It was left today as it was his birthday.

I know the reason for the flower with bio information is to give more information on the person.

By the way, only one flower a day is to be left on a memorial, and I now see you left two flowers with bio information.

[Send Reply] Flower with bio information...
Thought you would want to know that flowers with bio information are deleted. According to the guidelines, this is not wanted on memorials.

Hello, Linda-
You put in a photo request for Alfred Weber at Webster Union Cemetery. Since he is not listed in their records, I searched for his obituary and found that he is buried in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Rochester, NY. Cemetery records confirm this. I will be heading there today and will be posting a photo on his memorial page within a couple of days. He does not have a memorial linked to Holy Sepulchre so your changing the cemetery won't cause any conflicts.

Huffman-Koontz Cemetery
Hi Linda,
No. I don't know the procedure for merging duplicate cemeteries.
I have sent email to "" to remove my listing in its entirity - that is Koontz Cemetery on Naked Creek Road (Rt 609) in Page County VA.
Hopefully this will correct the duplication.
Thanks for your help.

Sarah Render Ward
With regard to your suggested change for Sarah (Render) Ward:

Posted with flower:
Edward Browning WARD and Sarah RENDER were married on May 20, 1814, in Ohio County, Kentucky.She was born 1792 in Centertown, Ohio, Kentucky and died 1857 in Utica, Daviess, Kentucky
- sandie yeaman

I agree with the marriage comment, except for the date:

Edward Ward and Sarah Render were married on 28 May 1814 in Ohio Co., KY, by Loderic Davis. Surety: Edward Ward, Joshua Render; Consent of Robert Render for daughter Sarah who is over 21 years dated 27 May 1814.

Kentucky, County Marriages, 1797-1954
Name: Edward Ward
Marriage Date: 28 May 1814
Marriage Place: , Ohio, Kentucky
Gender: Male
Marital Status: Married
Spouse's Name: Sarah Render
Spouse's Gender: Female

However, I don't believe the 1792 birth date is correct. Edward Ward's 1820 and 1840 Census Records don't support that. The 1820 Census lists her as over 45, which would be in the 1775 time period. The 1840 Census Record lists her as between 60-70, which would be in the 1770-1780 time period.

1820 Census Ohio Co KY, p11, Line #17
Edward Ward
1 Males Under 10.....(John)
1 Males 10-15...........(Ezra)
1 Males 16-18...........(Hezekiah)
1 Males 18-25...........(Bazzell)
2 Males 25-45...........(Jesse, Samuel)
1 Males Over 45........(Edward Browning Ward)
2 Females Under 10..(Elizabeth, Nancy)
1 Females 10-16........(Martha)
1 Females 16-25........(Sarah)
1 Females Over 45....(Sarah (Render) Ward)

1840 Census Ohio Co KY, p135, Line #1
Edward Ward
1 Males 70-80......(Edward Ward)
1 Females 15-20..(Nancy Ward)
1 Females 60-70..(Sarah (Render) Ward)

The Death Date/Place 1857/Utica, Daviess Co., KY might be a possibility. I couldn't find Sarah after 1840.

Her parents were from Culpeper Co., VA, and that is what I have for her birth place. I guess there is a possibility that Sarah could have been born in Ohio Co., KY, because that is where they migrated too.

Where did you get your birth/death information from?

RE: Twin male #2 Arnold
You would have contacted the original person. I was told they should only have one memorial as they are in the same plot so I changed it. I will transfer the one I have to you if you want. Just send a request. Different people have different opinions and it doesn't matter to me either way.

I am just trying to clean up the memorials in that cemetery as it is my home town cemetery. I have gotten over 20 duplicates removed/merged and as I said it is a work in progress. I can only correct so much so fast as I am only one person and a lot of people are buried in the cemetery.

Perhaps you would like to help in that endeavor and help with the research? I am trying my best to get it as fixed as I can.

Theodore Hammond
He wanted to be buried in Johnson Cemetery and services were slated to be held, but due to weather were cancelled. The Plot number has his name on it with the cemetery records. His wife buried him in Clinton against his wishes. I was told a marker was put up in Johnson to, but found out yesterday she didn't think one was ever put up.

Most of these Memorial's were transferred to me and I am working on updating them, which will take considerable time to research to connect families.
Thanks for your consideration as I work on them.

If you have any further questions about a memorial please email me at

Thanks for the edit's I hadn't paid attention to the names being in caps or I would have changed them! They were that way when they were transferred.

re Eugene B Whitney
Thanks. Eugene's cremated remains were initially placed in Florida National Cemetery. Then, upon the death of his wife Rita, his remains were removed from the Florida Cemetery and placed with her in the Sarasota National Cemetery.
My information comes from the Veteran's Affairs.

Thank you
Linda, Thank you for your assistance.
I make a screen shot of all messages I receive before I delete and save all pictures to my flash drives.

I have never encountered this situation before as I see hundreds of flowers with information other than a "Thank you" or "You are missed."

Appreciate your input
