RE: I do not know
Oh, ok. I didn't know how to connect the brother on her web page. Or correct the parents name either.
I just like to say thank you for all your hard work finding all the people that you have. I know it is not an easy task and so time consuming to boot.

Thank you again for all you do!!!!

RE: Just wanted to let
I'll be damned !!! She whined enough to the administrators @ Find A Grave that they removed a picture that I had added to one of the memorials she had added...interesting...

She has 900+ pictures added to memorials that she has created/duplicated so she had best be getting her butt in gear & going in & deleting ALL of the pictures that SHE has added & while she is @ it...

She needs to go & delete any & all pictures that she so kindly added to my memorial as well as many other members....

I think her dawg is pregnant & needs it's "Mommy"

It is after all...a doggie dawg world,right ?

A PLAN COMES TOGETHER !!! She had created/added a
memorial for someone & had them @ BHNC when the obit clearly stated Hill City Cemetery so when I just checked the memorial I had created/added for the same person (in the correct cemetery etc) she had slapped a "duplicate memorial" on mine which of course I had expected so I deleted my memorial.

See what I mean when I say "I love it when a plan comes together ? " She might think she has one up on me but in reality...she played right into my hands...LMAO !!!

Have a great nite & week-end (grinning),

Mount Moriah
Hi, Ellen :) I do not know how Different Star came to be buried at Mount Moriah. I started with Find A Grave many years ago and my main interest is photographing the graves. Thank you for offering to help me with research in Mount Moriah, but I am not doing any. I work full-time and my research is confined to my own family. Take care. Kathy

Check the FAQ
Basically everything you sent me in the email is in conflict with what FIND A Grave is asking contributors to put on a memorial.

I posted what I found appropriate and cited the sources.

Donald Whipple Fox / Hushasha
RE: Harlan W|hipple
My point is that there are duplicate entries for Harlan J Whipple. You have him listed at the cemetery at Our Most Merciful Episcopal Mission in Santee, Nebraska. I have set up one for him in the Santee Catholic Cemetery where he is actually buried. I don't know how to fix this, but was bringing it to your attention.

Harlan W|hipple
Hi Ellen: I'm Harlan Whipple's nephew and I also made an entry for him under the Santee Catholic Cemetery up the hill from OMMS. That's where his parents, grandparents and siblings are all buried. There is continued confusion about the cemetery on the hill as it is called Santee Catholic Cemetery, but Episcopalians from Our Most Merciful Savior are also buried up there.

Charles "Charlie" Aiken Find A Grave Memorial# 62927763

Charles Aiken is my grandmother's grandfather. My 96 year old grandmother is still living and has an incredibly clear mind and very good memory (she can look at her 3rd grade class picture and not only still tell you who all the children are in the photos but can tell you who their other family members are who aren't even in the photo).

Here is what grandma has to say about Charlie:
He was a poker player who dressed very fancy and used to go out to Deadwood South Dakota to play poker. One day he left and never returned. His wife said that she thought he was killed playing poker in Deadwood and was buried at Boot Hill which is now Mount Moriah Cemetery. He left home when his two daughters were very young. (His two daughters were born in 1879 and 1880 so he was still living at that time. He also appears on the 1880 US census for Canton, Lincoln, Dakota Territory with his family as Charlie H Aiken). Over the years grandma and her family tried to locate Charlie and several old timers in the area, while grandma was still a young girl (the early 1900's) recanted the same story that he was killed in a poker game in deadwood and buried on boot hill.

I am interested in the person who you found named John though and why you thought they might be the same person. I am open to any input on the subject.

Thank you for your help,

RE: You need to send

In the beginning I just add the edits the easy way (approve or decline thru the edit tab that end up on the home page) for the original person creating the memorial. Then I sometimes decide I just have enough info that maybe the deceased decendents may want more info. That's how you might get my asking if you want to do a temporay transfer. If it is too much bother, that is OK. I also let everyone know it is not my family. I just get to thinking of the decendants and get willing to add more info that I have at my finger tips. I always add the source (if I have it) so the decendants can always go get more through the newspaper. My intent is not to stress anybody out. Sorry, if it caused a problem. I have a lot more obits to go through and I won't be able to remember who doesn't want more info. So just ignore or decline any info I send your way. My break is over and I need to get back to Find A Grave. Have a great day and thanks for all the dedication and hard work you do in creating memorials for others benefit.

New Haven Cemetery
Hi Ellen-
I am not sure how we can change this but New Haven Cemetery in Crook Co.Wyoming is in New Haven not Hulett. It isn't anywhere near Hulett.

joseph Ashton
While digging through some boxes that was left after my mom passed away, I came across an envelope with memory cards for Joseph Ashton, Sr. and Walter (no last name). Walter died March 4th, 1879, aged 2 years 8 months. Interred in the Mottram Cemetery, March 8th.

I have no idea of any connections to my family. The envelope is addressed to Mrs Harry Ashton, Mason City, Nebr. post marked Sep 27, 1911, S. Dak.

in the bottom left of this envelope, (left side was ripped when it was opened, (It was already opened.) there is .of Mrs. Bell.

My mother kept several things left behind by both of her parents as well as some other relatives.

If you know of this person, please let me know. I would love to return these cards and envelop to their families.

Oh...that explains a lot. I had been off Find A Grave for a while and when I came back noticed her. You are right she is the only one I know who won't fix any of my edits to her. Couldn't understand seeing Beth putting in some other cemeteries as she and her husband usually went to the cemeteries and BH being the main one to take pics. Thanks for the update and will go around her.

Thanks Ellen,
I deleted both of my dupes. I know what you mean about the other person....she ignores all edits sent to her.....maybe she doesn't know how to correct her mistakes...Oh well
