RE: Edits
Good Morning Janet,

I'm still looking forward to having a cup of coffee and a great piece of strawberry-rhubarb pie with you.

The reason for the requests are to link them to earliest posted findagrave memorial for Samuel Adams, their father. In addition may I respectfully request that you upload the Great photo that you have taken of Samuel's headstone to his earliest memorial as well. Thank You!

My Best Regards.

RE: Elisha Clark # 37128394
Hi Janet,

Sure, I understand. Would you mind adding the current memorial number for his mother, Thankful, in Elisha's bio? She is at 149465299. Someone else in the family may have more luck in finding her burial, and if they see there is already a memorial for her, they won't create a new one and miss the info that is already available on her and her family.

>> I've declined to link my memorial for Elisha Clark with his mother Thankful (Gates) Clark because her burial is unknown.

RE: Jonas Clark #44940064
Hello Kay,

No, I didn't decide Theophilus was buried in the Smith Cemetery. He was already listed there; I simply supplied the name of his father. The creator is Nate Bramlett #46874243. Nate added the info in the bio for Theophilus.

I certainly do! I'm not asking you to link Jonas to Theophilus. But it would be nice if you could add a note about Theophilus, with the Find A Grave #105576098, in the bio for Jonas. In my opinion, adding the info there would make it LESS likely that someone else would create an additional memorial for Theophilus. In any case, I appreciate the great care you take in your work.

Best regards,

RE: Jonas Clark #44940064
Thanks for the info, Janet. If you don't get a reply from the creator of the other memorial, would mind mentioning in the bio section for Jonas that his is Theophilus Clark #105576098, although the burial location is not known at this time? Theophilus is in my husband's direct line (through Jonas's brother Nathaniel, # 28549171).

Best regards,
Kay #47019646

Hi, Yes I did manage to get to this cemetery but missed the Lyons that were buried there. If you happen to be there can you check for them.

RE: Hannah Tear
I am not sure why the tombstone says a different name. I was not the one who added it. I do know that the Hannah Tear is the one who I am looking for as Alphonso's Mother. Hannah had married Norman Tear (or Teer or Tier). I will need to search the cemetery when I'm over that way to see if I can find the actual stone & take a picture of it. Sorry, that I couldn't be of more help.

Hi- Yes, this work sure has to be done correctly, or else. I'm 'dithering' about one over in Whitehall, NY. I contacted the cemetery to see where the person would be interred & was waiting for the ceremony before creating the page. He lived elsewhere, but is being buried in Whitehall with his wife. I had noted on hers I was awaiting actual cemetery before entering him. Meanwhile, someone else decided to post the obit from the paper & say 'cemetery unknown'. So, now I'm debating whether to make my own, or tell the guy the cemetery when the ceremony takes place on 7/2. He must have read the wife's obit, as he linked them. She was in our DAR Chapter, that's why I created hers. I was under the impression people weren't supposed to enter 'unknown' cemetery. Nancy

Hi Janet: Looking at the above number, the stone says HIEKOK, but the odd thing, when U look at the stones of his children, they clearly say HICKOK. Am working on locating DAR markers in the Rutland, VT cemeteries, so was looking at this listing. Don't know if U wish to change this; meanwhile, my list will say Hiekok/Hickok. No wonder geneaology requires detective work! Thanks once again for all you do for F/G. Nancy

What I meant to say was, "Feel free to reply" or "You can reply." You would probably have inferred so.

Once again,

I rarely log into my profile these days, and my listed email is defunct. Would you prefer I transfer management of Mr. Kellogg's memorial to you, or simply link to his parents? Feel can reply to this message on my user profile.

thanks for the advice. I did write to the manager of the other memorial, with no response. I will ask for a merge, but the Admin boards seem to be having some king of a revolution right now.

I have left a few edits for Daniel and his wives, the information coming from the book The Bromley Genealogy by Viola Bromley copyright 1911
What, if any, of the information I've placed in these suggestion boxes you wish to place in the memorial is, of course, for you to decide.

Thank you very much

Thank you
Hi Janet,
Thank you for making those changes, and so quickly too!
I put in a few dozen such requests and maybe half have responded, so I feel good having this one done.
I’d love to see Herrick done. He has been a special cause of mine since I was a kid, a mystery that I had no information on. A distant cousin of mine, Rebecca Bromley Guenther, we share a common ancestor, Bethuel Bromley 1737-1808, crack the case and determined he was my great great grandfathers little brother. They were buried close to each other but no one remembered who he was so now I feel glad he’s no longer forgotten.

Certainly no apology needed at all! I get so turned around just dealing with my own family, especially because they keep using the same names over and over again generation after generation, I can’t imagine how you can keep up with so many different names and families.

Once again, I’d like to thank you for all that you have done!
Jess E Bromley
