Agreed in regards to nice vs. nasty on Find A Grave.
No, I guess I didn't get you message regarding the VanMeters. I checked my email inbox as well as here and there is nothing.

Hi Stu -
The way to remove a Flower is to click on your actual Flower icon, not the wording, and a screen will come up, with the option "Remove this offering" and proceed. That option, of course, only comes up on your own flower postings.
I see the real problem with putting bio info in a flower in that if several other people add flowers after the one with info, the info one will eventually go off screen and I'm sure there are many viewers, myself included, who do not scroll thru the flowers and find the bio info.
Unfortunately, Find A Grave does not have a means of a person viewing all the "Flowers" they themselves have posted, so to go back and find those with bio info is not an easy task. When bringing such flowers to others attention, I try to convey it as help, rather than critism. I had someone tell me recently that they had gotten "hate mail" about bio info in flowers he had posted on their memorials. It would be a better place, as my mother used to say, if people would "Keep a civil tongue in your head"!

Hi Stu -
I have copied the info in the "Flower" you left for James VanMeter to the bio section. I would greatly appreciate it if you would remove the flower since bio info in flowers is inappropriate.

Eva Atha was a sister to my paternal grandmother, Rosa Atha 1866-1898 so Eva was my great-aunt and her children with Thomas Dildine are my 1st cousins once removed.
Are you a descendant of them? I really don't know much if anything about the Dildanes. My line of research is the Athas.
Thanks for your interest.

|JudyM||RE: The Dildine Family|
I did not research the ancestors of Thomas Dildine as he is only related by marriage. I'm sorry I cannot help you. The only information that I found was the marriage date for William & Sarah Jane Jones on 06 Oct 1852 in Marion, Ohio. That came from FamilySearch.org. I'm sorry that I could not help.

Stu, I know I have written to you before. My father was Wallace Knowles Schneider. His mother was Ada Lorraine Knowles m. Aloysius "Ollie" Schneider. Ada's parents were Harrison "Henry" Knowles & Margarette "Margaret" Ann Lindsay - all of Marion Co., Ohio.
Henry Knowles parents were Capt. Hiram Knowles & Catherine Foos daughter of Capt. John Foos and Mary Aye, daughter of George Jacob Aye of Frederick, Maryland & Anna Catharina "Catherine" Dutro, Dutrow or Dotterer.
It appears we connect with Foos, Aye. Can you figure how we connect, from the above information.

I just created a memorial for Lisa Monnett Malcolm's (#38302359) husband, James Harvey Malcolm (#118922586). I was wondering if it is OK to copy the picture you have of the two of them and attach it to James. Or perhaps you could attach it yourself.
Added by Jim Pulver on Oct 18, 2013 3:46 PM
Do you know where I could get a copy of the old Doris VanMeter Hickson manuscript of the VanMeter family? Once it was in Marion Co OH.
Sure would appreciate it.

|Corinna Harvey-Burton||RE: Not sure|
James Thomas Harvey (1790-1846) is buried in Marion County Ohio and as I know, he was married to Martha Kline (1803-1885). Their son, James J. Harvey (1829-1913) was married to Lucinda Hinklin (1831-1873). James is buried in Bingham Nebraska. Their son, Robert A Harvey, my great grandfather, was born in Champion County Ohio and is buried in Vivian South Dakota.
My father tells the story that the Harvey line originated when 4 or 5 brothers came to America, with a couple of the brothers getting killed by Native Americans.
Thanks for your input!

Good morning! I see that William is your GGG grandfather. I am wondering if you are related to me. My G grandfather was Robert A. Harvey, his father was John J. Harvey, and his was James Thomas Harvey and I believe his father was William Harvey. Do any of these names ring a bell?
Thanks for your time.

|Mark Davis||Henderson Harvey|
I received your request to change Henderson Harvey's birthplace to Franklin County, PA. I will be happy to do that. But first, may I ask a couple of questions? Do you have documentation that puts his birthplace in Franklin County, PA? If so, do you now the township of his birth? Also, as you know, Franklin County was formed from part of Cumberland County in 1784. So if he was born in what is now Franklin County the more accurate birthplace should be recorded as Cumberland County.
Henderson Harvey is the earliest in my Harvey line to be positively identified. Do you have any records of his parents? Any documented information about Henderson Harvey that you are willing to share would be very much appreciated.
Mark Davis, 3rd great grandson of Henderson Harvey
