Re: John G Barnes
Thank you so much for the transfer! I will look forward to updating his memorial soon! I know about the weather and I know how it is. It's OK, spring will come soon enough. :) Thank you again!

RE: John Barnes @ Evergreen
That cem info is exactly what I had found on this person. I wasn't sure if I had the right person/headstone. And yes, please do find out if others were buried with him as well. I'm working on tying up on his family, my family, of course. Thank you very very much for affirming what I thought all along.

RE: Weller photos
You are welcome and am glad to have helped. I am what you might call a row "mower," so most request fulfillments come by a happy chance. While I am currently still working on uploading about 2500 photos from the cemetery, it is likely that the section that contained your relatives has already been uploaded. What I do know is that there are a good number of unmarked graves, and a good number of illegible markers. If I did not upload them, unless they are in a section of the cemetery that I did not do yet, then they may fall under those conditions.

Now, the good news is that I also simultaneously upload to BillionGraves.com. Since those images are crowdsource transcribed, they are mostly uploaded. I did apparently capture at least two more Weller's. You can see them listed here: http://billiongraves.com/pages/cemeteries/Oak-Woods-Cemetery-and-Confederate-Mound/180710#cemetery_id=180710&lim=0&num=25&action=search&family_name=weller&given_name=null

You can also see the photos, and see where they are located in the cemetery, as they are GPS tagged.

As to people who are buried there and died as early as 1860-1870, the number of legible markers from that period is few, although they certainly are there. So chances are that the only way you will be able to get information about where they are buried is from the office, which may cost $10 per record.

The neighborhood is certainly not what it was when the cemetery began. However, the cemetery is walled and has security and is quite safe. It is a beautiful place to visit too.

Ruel & David Jefferies
Rob,

Do you have any information on the parents of Ruel & David? I know their father was Pierce Jefferies born in 1818 and died in 1893. He was from Ohio and bought 160 acres. He was a brick layer in Warsaw. He later increased his acreage to 313 acres. I cannot find anything in Find A Grave for him or his wife Mary Schrack or Shrack.

My late ex-husband was the great grandson to Rose Etta Jefferies, Davids daughter.

Henry Eckert
Rob, you filled this request for Henry. I had sec 1901, single grave 19. You attached the picture and made the following comment:

What was referred to as "Public Grounds" in the late 1800's and early 1900"s. These are now identified on the current cemetery map as Sections 7, 8 and 13.

So let me see if I got this right. Henry was buried in area Sec 1901, single grave 19 and it was called the common grounds. Not this area is section 7, 8 and 13. Is this correct?

Henry was a brother of my Grandfather that I found in the records recently. Up until then I wasn't even aware of his existence.

Thanks for the information.

2Lt Robert Irvin Benedict
My friend Geoff took me to Cambridge and we have some shots of the Tablets of the Missing on which 2Lt Robert Irvin Benedictís name appears. He is editing/cropping them for me-we may upload four. If you are not happy with them, say so-we wonít be in the least offended and we may be buying a better camera after Christmas and we can do them again.

RE: Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial
If you go here
http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=mr&MRid=47912178
you will see the following-it as a blatant lie as it is possible to get.

b. THE CAMBRIDGE AMERICAN WAR CEMETERY : I am now managing some 601 ex-'CWGC/ABMC' memorials; do please be patient as I attempt 'remedial' work on most of them.[I have added countries and US states of birth, some were born well outside the US of A mainland and most importantly, ranks]. It has been a privilege to do this: I now need dates of birth and place names, as well as (in some cases) dates and places of death, so do HELP me please ASAP! Thanks to everyone who has contributed vital personal data so far. Note: I welcome any contribution anyone can make to improve the 601 memorials that I currently manage for Find-a-Grave; it has been a pleasure (albeit) a sad one to review all of them and to make changes. I was surprised that so many lacked requests for images of the gravestones/memorials. I manage all of these 601 memorials at the direct request of Find-a-Grave, to whom any queries should be directed and NOT to me personally. I look forward to hearing from you if you can make any contribution to them: I am especially grateful to Jim Chandler a.k.a. "455th AAA Historian" for the very many useful contributions he has made to Bios. recently, for the 455th AAA.

If you wish, contact my findagrave friend who has been researching at Cambridge for more than forty years-geoffrey.r.gillon@talk21.com

RE: Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial
Dear Rob,
That is precisely what I wrote to another American contributor a few days ago! And my friend, who has been researching at Cambridge for just over 40 years has used your remarks, anonymously to his contacts, to say how things should be. A couple of weeks ago, there was a card with flowers on a grave from 10 of the casualtyís nieces-they probably have never heard of findagrave, leave alone being aware that they could take over the memorial. It is a stupid rule which is probably simply Ancestry.com making their mark on things- the longer these pages are left with no bio, the less chance these memorials will ever get changed. Once upon a time, Tanya at Findagrave would transfer the memorial to anyone who put forward the slightest suggestion.

Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial
I just love this part of your personal profile! Have you tried to get Robert Benedictís memorial transferred to you? [I will probably do the photo request]

Most of my memorials are family, but I do enter military veterans and other graves that may catch my eye from time to time. If I have a memorial of a relative or friend of yours, send me a transfer request by way of a SAC. I don't follow Find A Grave's transfer guidelines as if they were the Ten Commandments like some folks do. If you have ever refused to transfer the memorial of a relative to someone - shame on you. That's just plain mean. What a truly horrible person it takes to be selfish with the memory of someone's deceased friend or loved one.

Please feel free to use my grave marker photos for your personal use.

Rob,
I will send for Harry's IDPF/293. This should take months to receive but will give the circumstances of his death.

What are you looking at when you find Ben and Harry buried in Alexandria Cemetery? Can you send me a link or copy of the text? I've been looking here and don't see them listed.

I can't find a reference to his drowning. Nor can I find reference to year that he or his father died, or where they're buried. Let me know if I'm missing something.

BTW, Ben Dreiss is my great uncle; husband of my grandfather's sister.

Take care,
Ed
