George also has a cenotaph at in Goodsell Cemetery, Hornby which can be found at Do you think you could be so kind as to link to his cenotaph memorial?

I have attempted a few times to request you change the misinformation on George's memorial with great difficulty. I have now attached proof of the corrections on his memorial. Do you now think you could make the proper corrections?

Re: memorial #40777773

Birdman, thank you for your good work with F/A/G. I am the great grandson of Matthias Davis' wife, Jane Van Kirk Davis Trisler, through her marriage to James Trisler, my great grandfather. I am respectfully requesting transfer of management of Davis' memorial to my care. I wish to add biographical information that will enrich his memorial and put a human face to this man. Sincerely, Ken Pieper, F/A/G member 47207034

RE: Thomas Mock
I have names from a 33rd Battalion list that was published in 1929. Also some info regarding where the Mocks probably lived. Do you have an email or should I just print it out and hand it to you since I'm in Hagerstown?

Are you still needing info on Thomas Mock or is that an older request still on your page?

Sheperdstown, WV
Thank you for the work you have done in documenting many of the WV cemeteries. I was recently at Rose Hill in Sheperdstown and wondered who maintains this lot? I find it was mowed but so many stone are overgrown and covered with vines and brush. I also took a photo of the marker of Charles Melroy at the top of the hill heading towards the mass grave of the Irish Canal workers.

Lapole family
First let me tell you how I am related to the Lapole's. I noticed you have David E Lapole (1860 - 1909), my relative is his brother William L Lapole which is my third great grandfather. I am doing some family research and I seem to be stuck. I have gotten as far as David and William's parent, William Edward and Mary Ann Lapole. Would you happen to know who William Edward Lapole's parents were? Thank you so much in advance.

Hi BIRDMAN! Great Name!
I left some edits for Mary the other day but came to your page here & read what you said & figured I would go ahead & get my 2nd great aunt transferred to me#47107475 so I can add her Bio & attach her to her mother, Elizabeth (Morris) Harris Bird we have had NO luck finding her father William Harris who disappeared after 1860 census (maybe Antietam? I heard some locals picked up arms but we don't know!;) & by 24 Jan 1867 her mother Elizabeth remarried to Thomas Bird. Mary was born & raised at what is now 110 Chapline St(the little cabin attached to the Grain building) when she married Edward Thomas Hebb 9 Jan 1868 they lived right on Main St.(I know what house but not sure about the address)THANK YOU!

RE: E Isnogle d. 1926 Plot: 251
Thanks Ken for checking to see if there was a headstone. I would love a picture of the area even though there is not headstone. In my opinion it is better than nothing.

I am working on linking Isenogle's (and their many various spellings) to other family members (mine Icenogle) on I haven't figured out who this person is yet and how they fit into the family (who their parents are). This is why I requested a photo hoping it would provide more information. It's up to you if you want to transfer it to me. I will surely revisit it until I figure out which family line this person belongs to.

Thanks for creating the memorial. It really helps, as it is sometimes impossible to figure out where people are buried unless someone posts their memorial on

Best Regards,
Teresa Dorey

RE: Antietam National Cemetery, 23rd Ohio Infantry

Thanks for your response--I do understand the time element involved with being a graver. There are 260 names on the 23rd's regiment monument in Woodland Cemetery in Cleveland and many are buried at Antietam National with headstones and others that are supposedly there but have no burial record or headstone. It has taken me two months and hours of research per day to do the first hundred so if I keep working at a steady pace I hope to finish this project by February, so this is a serious undertaking to me.

So, do you have any idea how many unknown burials there are in the Ohio section at Antietam--ballpark estimate? Some bodies were removed for reburial in Ohio but can be difficult to track down, otherwise they must be unidentified burials at Antietam National.

I would gladly accept transfers, add the biographies and then transfer them back to you which I have done in the past but I don't know what your position would be on this. What do you think?

I do wish to commend your consistency in creating memorials for those buried at Antietam National, Ohio troops especially, but others as well. If we gravers don't take the time to put forth the effort now to create and edit these memorials, who will? If no now, when?--maybe never.

Antietam National Cemetery, 23rd Ohio Infantry
I have been sending edits for members of the 23rd Regiment, Ohio Volunteer Infantry buried at Antietam National Cemetery through since the beginning of July. Are you behind in adding the edits? I will be working on this project for months into the future so addition edits will be coming through. Could you check your edit requests on a regular basis so we don't get too far behind?

My error. Donald's wife is Helen Apperson Shiflet.
Her mother is Dorothy Johnston Apperson, Hewlett.
Dorothy's mother is Mary Bear Johnston, which is
my maiden name, and related to my family.

RE: Benona Shiflet
I admire you for going through the trouble to
check every request you receive is above board.
Their other son, Donald Guy Shiflet born in
Boonsboro, Maryland died in Newport News, Va
April 21, 1994.
Beautiful obituary of Donald, but does not state
where he is buried. I wrote to the church. He is
married to Dorothy Johnston, her mother has my
maiden name. What I sent to you is his parents
and brother. When I find where Donald is buried I will link him with his family.
Thank you very much for your response.
