Your service
Just a note to thank you for your service here Richard. I understand the tone in your bio, I've read some of the comments... 20 years in Navy Medicine, in any customer service skill set - I am well aware there's always "those guys"... I think modern retail box stores created them - the entitled, the demanding, the always right, the you will do this for me right now types... Retail telling them they are, come on in an abuse our staff, make yourself at home and let those domestic disturbance pent up emotions out, you're right, you're always right - Probably same folks called "trolls" on Facebook posts... those people that no matter what the post - they gotta comment and poo-poo it.... "those guys"... It's NOT exactly like you're making millions DOING THIS FOR THESE PEOPLE because they're too damn lazy to do it themselves.... so - THIS BUD'S FOR YOU! MR. CEMETERY GRAVE LOGGER! For all you do. Doing so much, for so little, for so long, for so many ungrateful. Thank you for logging my Grandparents. 8329396

RE: Francis Wright
FindaGrave Memorial #31946710 Francis M. Wright!

Ruth S. Gibson was the daughter of David Gibson and his first wife, Mariah Scoggin. Mariah died in Dearborn Co., IN and David Gibson died in Chenoa, IL.

Francis Marion Wright and Ruth Gibson had one son, William Wright, b. abt 1851 in Washington Twp., Tazewell Co., IL. Ruth is buried in the Old City Cemetery in Washington, IL. David is buried in the Payne Cemetery at Chenoa.

From the 1860 through 1880 census records are these children born to Francis Marion and Philura Holland.

Elizabeth Wright, b abt 1858
Almira Wright, b. abt 1859; m. Marcus L Burnett
George Wright, b. abt 1861
Perry Kize Wright, b. abt 1863
Annie Wright, b. abt 1865
John F. Wright, b. abt 1867
Harvey L. Wright, b. abt Dec 1869
Daniel W. Wright, b. abt 1870
James Allen Wright b. abt 1877

[A biographical sketch of Harvey L. Wright in a history of Bates Co., MO indicates Francis and Philura had nine children.]

In the Washington News, Washington, IL, August 3, 1893, Page 5 is this entry: "Five sons of Frank Wright, formerly of this neighborhood, now residing in Bates county, Mo., took refuge in a large cattle shed on their farm during a thunder storm last week. The building was struck with lightning killing two of the boys outright and knocking the other three down." This corresponds to the dates of death listed for John F. Wright and Daniel W. Wright--so explains their deaths!

Hope this helps!

Re: Memorial #65201828
You apparently added (2) gravestone photos to the Guy Franklin Kohler memorial, but the pictures are of his brother's gravestone instead. Could you remove the photos from here and instead post them to his brother's memorial?

Thanks -

I do have documentation
But, made an edit to change his name to Snodgrass rather than Snorgrass.

Added by dek_tx on Jan 04, 2017 10:01 AM

I have very good records for my mother's Snodgrass line. Do you have documentation for this person belonging to my line because I don't.

Respectfully request that you allow me to manage the memorial of Clarence McCoy (# 33345722). He is my grandfather, and I'll be happy to provide you evidence of that fact.

Thank you in advance.

Find A Grave Memorial# 71346105 William Lewis Stone
The service information on the headstone is incorrect. There were two men named William Lewis Stone who served the Confederacy from Mecklenburg County. When my Great Grandmother ordered the marker for her father, some 40 years after his death, someone took the record of the other William Lewis Stone, who actually died in the war and could not have been my Great-Great Grandfather, who survived Point Lookout and Elmira and returned to Mecklenburg County to marry and have children. He actually served in the 21st Virginia Infantry, Company C and was captured at the Wilderness. We are in the proces of talking to the family about adding a plaque to the marker with the correction.

Changes to 34213794 - "Male" Gary
Hi, and first off, thanks for all the work you do to create and maintain so many memorials!! I can't imagine the efforts it has taken and requires! It is certainly appreciated though!

I've sent a change request for the parents of the infant male Gary. As you noted, the inscription on the grave stone is "Son of JC and E", which I believe to be John Chambers Gary JR, (#88713677) and his wife Emett (#88713671), rather than JC Gary Sr and wife Eliza Clark.

Thank you for your consideration to make this correction.

I found this article about this boys death. Maybe you could post for other researchers. The article has his father's name. Thank you.

Article from the Abilene Daily Reflector, Abilene, Kansas, 20 July 1888 reads...


Kansas City, Missouri - July 19 - Murray Chambers, the thirteen year old son of T. C. Chambers, real estate dealer, living at Eleventh and Bernard Streets, was drowned yesterday afternoon in the Blue near the Milwaukee round house. James Chaney, sixteen years of age, while diving from a spring board, struck Chambers on the head just as he was rising to the surface after diving. Both boys were stunned, and their scalps were laid open to the skull. Chambers sank to t he bottom like a stone and did not rise again. Chaney barely managed to reach the shore.

I was looking at his memorial. I think you may have accidentally added a picture of someone else's stone. Please check and see if I'm looking at this correctly.
