Henry von Thaden 1907
Hello. Thanks for your beautiful work on findagrave. My sister is a prodigious contributor, so I appreciate what is involved. I was looking at your bio of Henry von Thaden 1907 in Germonds Cemetery, wondering how he and his immediate family attach to all of my Steinau von Thadens. I artificially hooked him up with a parent while I continue the research, but I'm wondering if you are related and can point me in the right direction. If so, thanks!

Garfield H. Massey/Massie
I was out trying to find markers today for memorials with missing pictures. I was unable to find Garfield H. Massey (#90061329) at Pole Creek Baptist cemetery. However, I located Garfield H. Massie (#41442812) at nearby Snow Hill cemetery. Dates of birth and death match.

John O. Freeman
Hi Kelly,
Thanks for the edit information. Do you have any more information on John O. Freeman, first husband of Nancy Campbell? I only have a census record. I haven't been able to learn anything from family members. I think he died in the Civil War. He is my G-G Grandfather.

Mae Curry
Hi, This person is listed in the same cemetery by two people. She is listed as Lillie Mae Curry. I believe her husband is also listed in this cemetery. Adam Luther Curry. You have more of her mother and family connection and the other person has a photo of the tombstone. I included both in my Ancesty tree. Janis Webb Babb

William Henry Beach
Hello, I am researching a potential connection between Catherine Butler Bollman (1826-1920) and William Henry Beach (1852-1930). Her will references a mortgage held against William H Beach, which was to be satisfied to the benefit of Mrs. William A Jackson of Campobella, South Carolina.

Catherine Bollman was the daughter of Jeremiah Butler (1802-1865). His sister Catherine Butler (1792-1875) married several times. Her first husband Miles Beach (1781-1820) died in Augusta, Georgia. They reportedly had five children, but I have only identified two - Mary W Beach (1820-1845) and Capt. Henry Miles Beach (1818-1855) (died at sea).

I think the referenced Mrs. William A. Jackson is Mattie Beach Jackson, the daughter of William Henry Beach.

I also am wondering whether the referenced William H Beach is the son of Henry Miles Beach or his brother. However, your find-a-grave info indicates that his parents were J.R. and Sarah Rhodes Beach, both of whom were born in Ohio.

Catherine Butler Bollman and Jeremiah Butler lived in Ohio at one time but both died in Pennsylvania. Catherine Butler Beach Cormish Patterson moved to Ohio after the death of her second husband.

Any information you could share regarding the parents of William Henry Beach would be appreciated. Thank you.

Martha Jane Foster Snapp
Birthdate for Mary Jane Foster Crocker
Hi! I recently came into possession of my great grandfather's journal which was found in a local antique store by a distant cousin. Mary Jane's father was a farmer, teacher, Trial Justice, and assigned to local police duty during the Civil War. In his journal, he made an entry to confirm Mary Jane's date of birth which was August 25, 1863--not 1860 as engraved on her headstone. Her parents had been gone 16 years (father) and 24 years (mother) so probably no one living remembered her birthday. I thought you might like to note this error on the Find-A-Grave page you so generously created for her. Thank you for your work on Find-A-Grave. All of us who search for information about our long-gone relatives appreciate the time and energy you devote to these records!

Blanche Harrell
Hi Kelly. I got your request for newspaper name and date of publication for Blanche's obituary. The original of the obituary is at my mother's house. Next time I'm over there I will try to find it again. I think it was Florence Morning News, and most of the obituaries she kept were from them, but I can't be sure.

Cole L. Gosnell page
Hi Kelly Jane,
Just wanted to let you know that Cole L. Gosnell was the step-father of Audrey Maxine Morgan Hartis. Cole L. was a wonderful man who loved and parented Maxine, but he was not her biological father. Is there a way of showing that difference on the F-A-G page? The biological father of Maxine was Malcolm Jefferson Burton (1915-1944), who also has a F-A-G page. Malcolm did not marry Maxine's mother, Leila, and Malcolm did not raise Maxine. Also, Cole L. did have one biological daughter (who is still living), whom he loved and parented along with Maxine. This is Brenda Joyce Gosnell Gibbs. I can send you a photo and info for Cole L. Gosnell if you would like.

Find A Grave Memorial# 47832289, Burial: Cremated, location of ashes unknown. Ashes may be located at Find A Grave Memorial# 72796989. Especially, the fact that the dates are the same and that he had served in the Army and fought in the Vietnam War. If this is found to be true, will you please connect all of these together? Thank you.

Hi Kelly, first I want to thank you for posting this informative Find-a-Grave and the headstone photo. Gideon Moon is my husbands 5th great grandfather and I would like to include your information into the family tree. I currently am on Ancestry with my tree linked. If necessary, I could privatize the photo. Thanks!! Sharlene Thomas

Beth Holt
Myra Fricks Beatty & Rebecca Fricks
Dear Kelly,
I'm a 2nd great-granddaughter of Rebecca Ivester Fricks. I noticed that on her daughter's memorial page, you have posted the obituary for Myra, which also includes Rebecca's, but it cuts off before getting to Rebecca's info. Do you, by chance, have the rest of the story? I would so love to see it. I know that Granny Fricks attended her daughter's funeral, then came home and died, which is why there are two obituaries together under the same heading. I assume these are from the Walhalla, SC newspaper.

Thank you,
Beth Frick Holt

Memorial #89837991 John James Campbell
Hi Kelly.
I submitted a death date correction for Memorial #89837991 John James Campbell
based on publication dates of obit [14 Aug 1957] and death notice [13 Aug 1957] referring to his death on Monday. 12 July 1957 was NOT a Monday but 12 Aug 1957 was.
John J Campbell was my Mother's half Uncle by his marriage to Harriette Etta Kelley.
Thank you for all the helpful work you contribute
