Re-Assignment of Memorials
Hello Audrey,

Find below names and memorial numbers for the following Find-A-Grave records:

Florence O'Connell Mackowiak -- #20136576

Thomas J O'Connell -- #20213765

Regina O'Connell Hazel -- #20213463

John J O'Connell -- #20213772

You are listed as the "creator" of these records.

Would you consider re-assigning "ownership" to me?

I am a grandson of Regina O'Connell Hazel, and knew the individuals behind all of the above listed names. I am also the defacto family archivist and "go-to" for ancestor related info within the family, mostly by default as that I am the only one who has expressed an ongoing interest down through the decades, and have accumulated many of the family photos and records of past family members.

Joe Caldwell is my nephew, and the computer wiz who has been assisting recently in upgrading our family records on Find-A-Grave. If you are in agreement, would you kindly re-assign these above records to his Find-A-Grave account #48483776?

Kind Regards,

Scott Hazel

George Mercer #19812596
I f0rget the title but there is a pretty good biography of Gen. George S. Patton written by his grandson or great-grandson that opens with a chapter on Hugh Mercer, who was a forebear, relating his migration to Virginia after the battle of Culloden, where he treated Scots wounded by British bayonets in the same way that he himself died at Princeton, according to the account.

Photo of Confederate Monument at Fairview Cemetery
You have a phenomenal photograph of the Confederate Monument on the page for Fairview Cemetery, Culpeper, Culpeper County, VA. Since I have a Great Uncle buried in the Confederate soldier mass grave in this Cemetery, I would love to have this monument placed on his Memorial page, but cannot do it myself since it is not my photograph. Find A Grave does not seem to have a way to change the Cemetery photograph that is on individual Memorial pages. Would it be possible for you to post your photograph on my Great Uncle's Memorial page. I would be so grateful if you would do this. His Memorial page is located at:
Thank you so much,
Mary Eleanor Dutton Urso

George Mercer
Audrey, I think there is something wrong with our database about this man. He was the son of Hugh Mercer alright, but was he really an aide-de-camp of George Washington and ALSO killed at Battle of Princeton--age 66? I have brought this up with Mike Lyman, the compiler of the research for the book. I know what the source is for this statement, but I am wondering as to how accurate it is (Virginia Military Records, p. 357 which is a compendium of miscellaneous articles which may or may not be accurate). Will have to check that out. So, for now, it's still up in the air. I am leaning toward deleting him but that is not my call. Thanks for your reply to this.

George Mercer #19812596
Audrey. Just to muck up the waters about this man even more, I am working with the Virginia SAR on an upcoming book of Rev. War patriots buried in Virginia. We show this man, George Mercer, as born 1711 and killed at the battle of Princeton on 3 Jan 1777. He had been appointed as an aide-de-camp of General Washington on 17 Sep 1775 at Ft. Cumberland. We also show him (and I am not sure if this is accurate) as a son of Gen. Hugh Mercer. what do you make of this? The tombstone inscription is vague. Craig Kilby, Lancaster, VA

You have my grandmother's maiden name spelled with an "s", but there is no "s" in her name. Would you please correct her name and her parents.

Ida E Brown
I am wondering if you have any information on Ida E Brown buried in Sperryville Cemetery. I am researching my 2nd great grandmother and I have found two memorials in this cemetery both stating wife of George W. Brown, but one is Ida E and the other is Eunice Ida both born in the same year and both died in the same year. I assume they may be the same person and two separate memorials created. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Robert A Taylor

I was hiking in Prince William Forest Park recently and I believe we found the family cemetery (original cemetery?) for Robert A Taylor. I can send you the picture if you want to add it to the Fina A Grave page. It has the same name and dates that you have listed.

RE: King Family of Washington, DC
Hi Audrey,
Another contributor has located the obituaries that I was looking for. Unfortunately, the burial site was not revealed in the obits, but I was able to employ the names of the living in the obits, in order to locate a family member of the deceased. It doesn't always work, but sometimes it proves to be successful.
My gratitude goes out to you for your kind offer to assist me.
Have a blessed day!

King Family of Washington, DC
Can you help me locate a husband and wife that passed away in DC? It seems that DC has that 50 year rule about obtaining a copy of a Death Certificate, which is keeping me from finding their burial location. Could you access the Obits in the Library?
Please help me if you can.

Peter Lenhart #19645355
Thank you for such a beautiful memorial page for Peter Lenhart, my sixth great-grandfather. I have been looking diligently for record of his military service. I noticed the service medallion attached to the flag in the front of the picture. Would you have a picture of the medallion? Do you suppose there is a reference number on that medallion?

I would appreciate any help you could give me.
Thanks, Jean

Inquiry re Charles Broadwater & Family
Hello Audrey,

Thanks so much for providing me with the address of the Broadwater Cemetery. I had contacted Ray who maintains the memorial pages for those interred in the cemetery, and he also provided me with the address. I see that he now has posted the address on each of the Find A Grave pages.

You and my husband share the same ancestors. Col. Charles Broadwater Jr. & Ann Amelia Markham are my husband's 6 Great Grandparents. Their son, Lt. Charles Lewis Broadwater who married Betheland Sebastian, are my husband's 6th Great Grandparents.

I wonder just how many Broadwater descendents are alive today? I bet it's a bunch!!!

Thanks so much for the information. Have a great day!

Inquire re Charles Browdwater & Family
Hi Audrey,

Thanks so much for posting the pictures of the Charles Broadwater Cemetery, and the news article re Charles Broadwater's death.

The Broadwater's are my husbands ancestors, and we would like to visit the cemetery on an upcoming visit to Virginia. I was just wondering if you had an exact address for the burial site, and if you had any other information on this family that you can share with us?

Thank you for all that you do for the Find A Grave family!

Janet McKenney
DARR family of Fairfax Co., VA
Do you have any information on Edna DARR MORRISON who was the daughter of George Wilson DARR and the sister of Robert Earl DARR? She was married to my husband's uncle (Ernest Samuel MORRISON). The last record of her was the 1930 census. I am seeking information on her and their son James. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Janet McKenney

After looking at your library of memorials I understand why you denied my request.

I just want you to know I am sorry and it will not happen again.

We all do things differently and it's good to keep things the same so since the rest do not have punctuation it's best none of them do.

Again, I am sorry.
