BIRDMAN (#47118844)

Darren Green
Ruan Huffer Motter
Birdman, unless it's one you're interested in, I'd be happy to have memorial 84625311, Ruan Huffer Motter transferred to me. She's my Great Great Great Grandmother, and I have more than a passing interest in maintaining her memorial. Although Ruan passed away nearly 150 years ago, it's been passed down to the current generation what a kind and loving person she was. In fact, there are no less than eleven of her descendants that have carried on her name, including my own daughter Emmarie Ruan Green. In any case, I'm grateful for the time you've taken to fill findagrave with your work. Regards, Darren Green.

Francis Cassidy #901
Dear Birdman,

I am a National Park Ranger working at Lowell NHP in Massachusetts. We are making connections to other NPS sites for the Centennial year. I would like permission to use your photo of Francis Cassidy's gravestone for our post to FaceBook on Saturday. He was a painter whose family could not afford to bring him home for burial.

Please let us know and tell us how you would like to be credited.

Pvt. Dennis Locklin #48776291
Hi again Birdman,

I've been trying to reach you since May 16th via the "edit" and public message options, but I haven't heard back from you. I hope you're just busy and that you're okay!

I'm hoping that you will transfer my Great-Great Uncle's memorial to me. I would really love to have it. If you don't want to transfer it, would you at least please contact me so that I can send information to you to add to the memorial? Please help me to get Dennis and his family members "back together."

Cemetery search
Hello! I see you posted a photo of the Gsell and Foreman cemetery near Marion, PA. I have ancestors in this cemetery--I found your picture from a search for the grave of Jacob Hege. I'm trying to track down the burial spot of Christian Hege who served in the Revolutuonary War.

Would you be so kind as to let me know where the Gsell and Foreman cemetery is located?

Thanks! Sue Burkey

Elias S Eakle
Is there a stone for Elias? This is my great grandfather, on my mothers side of the family. I'd like to see a pic of his stone added to his find-a-grave site. I can also supply his children's names from his 1st wife. No children by his 2nd wife.

Thank you,

Sandra McBride

Helen Wilson
Enos P. Wilson, Antietam
I have submitted some edits as well as a photo for Enos, who is the younger brother of my husband Jerry's great grandfather, Alpheus Wilson. (see 1850 Census) They both served for WV in the Civil War, along with 2 other brothers. Enos died at Sandy Hook "hospital" at age 18 after serving less than one year. We visited Antietam several years ago & took a picture of his gravestone on a rainy grey day, so the picture is not great (the stone was not in good condition either). Regards, Helen Wilson

My great-great-grandfather's first cousin, two times over.

Father: 15789667 Daniel Kunkel 1809-1888
Mother: 15789655 Lydia Fahringer Kunkel 1815-1901

Please post under biography:
“Historical and Biographical Annals of Columbia and Montour Counties, Pennsylvania . . .” (Chicago: J. H. Beers & Co., 1915), page 1163: “Children as follows were born to Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Kunkel: Sarah Ann, wife of Edward Strausser, is buried near Pittsburg; Andrew, born July 15, 1838, was killed in the battle of Antietam; . . .”

There is no need to transfer to me. I just posted his maternal grandparents; anyone who starts looking at this family, will be contacting me.

Thank you very much,
