RE: Enoch Morgan marker
Thank you so much for the update on the gravestone for Enoch Morgan. I am so very thankful that his gravestone inscription was recorded at an earlier date. I really appreciate you taking the time to explain the situation to me. God bless you!

Hello,

Thank you for creating the memorial of Ezekial Zollars. I see you were trying to locate his parents, "Sarah and Ned" Zollars. I confess the picture of the tombstone is too worn down to see the description myself, but I may have an answer for you.

I believe his parents were Sarah and "Neal" Zollars. If the "a" fused with the "l" on the tombstone, I could see how it could have been read as Ned. In addition, in 1893 the book Commemorative Biographical Record of Washington County, Pennsylvania by J.H. Beers lists out Neal Zollars and Sarah Martin's children as follows:

"George, Joseph, Nancy (deceased), Ezekiel (deceased), Grant, Kate, Elmira, and Martha Zollars".

It was published 1893. In addition this couple can be found in Morris, Washington Co Pa in 1870 with children George, Joseph, Nancy and Ulysses Grant. (Name mistranscribed Lollara on Ancestry, Lollers on familysearch). 1880 has them East Bethlehem, Washington Co. Additional children Catherine, Mary A. and Martha are found.

I believe Mary A. is the missing Elmira. All in all I've found this book to be remarkably accurate and provable. They seem to have interviewed relatives of the family to get the information. So I think his parents are Neal and Sarah Zollars of Beallsville Cemetery. Both of them have duplicate memorials so give me a bit to message their creators and see if they can agree to reduce the number of memorials to one. If you agree with this relation, I will submit an edit to Ezekial to add the relationships to the single memorials when finished.

RE: Memorial 28678969
First, that section of ground is for the Evans family. If you look at all the grave markers there this marker is the largest and most prevalent for the Evans family. John Evans Sr was the most distinguished member of the Evans family. He lived only a block away from the cemetery, his son also only lived a couple blocks away, his home still stands on Sharpless Rd "John Evans Sr.". John donated the land the church is built on and formed the London Britain Township both in the year 1725. John owned most if not all of the land in London Britain township where the Church is located. I could not 100% read or say this is his grave marker but I would put a stake on it that it is. Also note he died two years after his son, John would've been buried next to his son. His grave marker would've been like his sons but better, John Sr was so much more well known to the residents all around. Looking at the choices you have this would have to be his grave marker. John Sr. would not have had just a stone, there is no others of this type to choose from and this type of marker would have not washed away in any flood!

My error, I did not look first. I see now that his last name has been corrected. Thank you, that will help some with searches.

RE: Jno. B. Ackburn
Thank you for posting the military info. One question--how will anyone find him in a search, if the name remains entered incorrectly? If you look carefully at the top photo of the marker, you can see the bottom horizontal leg of the partially missing letter "L." The name was not inscribed incorrectly, the stone is damaged. Also, the policy does state to use full names when known. No one searching for John Blackburn will find the memorial for Jno Ackburn. Will you please reconsider correcting his name? Thank you!

Update
Well that was fast... the holder of Mrs. Buckingham's listing had the correct photo and there was just a small mix up. All is corrected and I'm going to click your updates through now!

Walter Buckingham Spouse
Hello! You submitted parents and a spouse for Mr. Buckingham. I trust your information, however I wonder if you noticed the photo attached to the listing for the spouse you specified (Rachel C Hildebrand Find A Grave #94279452)... it looks like it's for two other people (photograph added and page created by the same contributor). Any idea what's up? I submitted a message to that contributor as well, but I figured I'd point it out to you prior to making the approval on your changes.

I submitted, through proper channels with Find A Grave, a request to change the links for his father and mother. This request based on the family history book by Griffin Guy Frazier. Refer to page 35 Ref # 6 for parentage, and Ref # 26 for Job and his siblings. Father should be 13218276 & Mother should be 13218268.

Best regards,

Thank you for the correction. I've moved the photo.

It would be helpful if you would use the edit tabs on the memorial.

RE: Mary Hannemann
The info for Mary on Ancestry.com states that she was buried in Forest Park, Illinois, not Forest Home Cemetery.

I looked at the burials for December 1928 for Forest Home (and Waldheim German) Cemetery, and I did not see her name listed.

There are three other major cemeteries in Forest Park: Concordia, Waldheim Jewish, and Woodlawn. If you contact them hopefully they can tell you if she is buried at one of them.

Sometimes records are missing, so you can also check with Forest Home at 773-287-0772. This cemetery does not assist volunteer photographers so the only way to know if she is actually buried here is to contact the office. Since this cemetery has over 150,000 burials it is nearly impossible to fulfill a photo request without the burial plot.

RE: Mary Hannemann
Please contact the cemetery to obtain the burial plot (Section and Lot numbers). This cemetery does not help photo volunteers.

Phone: 773-287-0772
E-mail: deborah.bluck@foresthomecemetery.net

Most of the reason that there are over 300 unfilled photo requests at the cemetery is that the volunteer photographers cannot obtain the burial plots.

Hardly anyone photographers at this cemetery because they choose to not be helpful to those of us seeking to help you and other photo requestors. I still photograph here, but I cannot get the plot myself.

Thank you! Ace

Sorry- I should have included the memorial # of the duplicate entry for Alice Glover. It is:

Hello-
It looks as though another contributor has entered in a duplicate entry on Alice Glover. Here is the link:
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=glover&GSfn=alice+&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSob=n&GSsr=41&GRid=123553901&df=all&
She has some of the information wrong (ie BD) but enough to see it is the same person. I am contacting you (instead of contributor Linda) because I am very familiar with your work and trust your findings. She does have more info about Alice's 2nd husband William Vestel and the children from that marriage.
Thank you!

Ref memorial 313718546 for Isaac Davis. I believe you have Isaac's grandmother (Hannah James Davis 132221225) listed as his mother. According to you memorial it should be Nancy Ann Lewis Davis 32876429. Can your review and correct if necessary. Thanks

John Wilde at Wherwell
There are multiple published accounts of his burial at Wherwell. Try looking him up in the incredibly useful Dictionary of National Biography, available at most libraries and online. I've seen at least two other books myself that confirm his burial there.

Bob Stokley
Susan Forbes 100085384
I believe it is probable that according to her memorial #100085384, Susan Forbes is buried in the wrong cemetery. I believe the correct cemetery would be the Stokely Cemetery in Newland, Pasquotank County as all available evidence would indicate this. Her death certificate states she was living in Newland Township at the time of her death and only that she was to be buried in the "Stokly" Cemetery.In the 1920 Pasquotank Census, she is living in the household of a cousin, W. James Gregory, in Newland (This Gregory line goes back to Rhoda Stokely, dt. of Isaac Stokely and Lydia Albertson, who m. Isaac B. Gregory.) William James Gregory is buried in the Stokely Cemetery in Newland as well as his wife, Anna Turner Gregory. It would stand to reason, since she had no other family, that she would be buried in the cemetery with her relatives.
