They do not have memorials. Please copy and paste that information into the bio section.

All's Well That Ends Well
Hi Stu,

I don't know whether it was because of the message I sent to the administrator, or the message I sent this past Thursday to the individual who created the memorial for my great-grandfather, but today I logged on and found the memorial had been deleted. I know my last message to that person, which was very polite, made the man very angry as he sent me a nasty reply. No matter. I created a new memorial, including photos, etc. and linked it to parents, spouse, and children. Meanwhile, the administrator did transfer memorials for my great-aunt and her husband that had been created by an individual listed as "inactive." All's well that ends well.

I trust you're enjoying the holiday weekend.

Best,

Tom

RE: Perry Co, OH Fickel Memorials
Hi Stu,

Thanks for your sage counsel regarding the 1% who consider themselves either "laws unto themselves" or "temple guard dogs". One runs into those types everywhere, not just on Find A Grave. I had read the FAQs regarding transfers over the weekend and yesterday I sent an Email to the address provided by the administrators (info@), laying out the issue concerning my great-grandfather. It will be interesting to see if anything comes of it. As mentioned previously, I saw no reason to reply to the individual again. It did cross my mind that he (or she) didn't believe that anyone could be on here with a great-grandfather born in 1820. It's an unusual situation to be sure, but one that's well documented. Meanwhile, I have a raft of other relatives to create memorials for and the task to enhance those that I currently maintain. I'll let you know how I make out with the transfer issue. Best, Tom (I go by my middle name "Thomas")

RE: Perry Co, OH Fickel Memorials
Thanks Stu for your reassuring words concerning those who doggedly hold on to listings of persons who are not relatives. Your message arrived at a most opportune moment as I ran into that yesterday when asking that my great-grandfather's memorial be transferred to me. The individual's replies to me were clearly condescending and left me wondering what's the real reason for the refusal. At any rate, thanks again for your reassuring words and for happily transferring my ancestors memorials to me. I appreciate it! Tom

Thanks for transferring the Joseph D. and Mary Dusenberry Fickel memorials to me.

Best,

Mary Dusenberry Fickel
Stu, I see that you maintain the Find-a-Grave Memorial for my great-great grandparents, Joseph D. Fickel (Memorial #73152915) and Mary Dusenberry Fickel (Memorial #73152954. When viewing the memorials, I noticed that Mary Dusenberry Fickel's parents are not listed. Her father was Revolutionary War soldier William Dusenberry (Memorial #76046574) and his first wife, Elizabeth Compton. Elizabeth Compton died in 1797 in New Hampton, NJ and there is no record of her grave. I maintain the memorials for two of Joseph's and Mary's children, namely Josiah and Rachel, and if you're agreeable, would be happy to take over Joseph's and Mary's.

Best,

Thomas Urban

Monnett Documents
Hi Stu -

Remember me? It's been a year or so since I last contacted you with some Monnett photos that I inherited. I have been going through some of the letters and papers and found some documents that might interest you. I have three land deeds for land in Ohio that was purchased by the Monnett family in 1832, 1833 and 1858. One bears the signatures of both Abraham Monnett and his wife Sarah. The other two are William Monnett. Would be happy to send you photos if them if you are interested. Also have found some graduation announcements for Monnetts and some cards and letters from Monnetts that were sent to my Kinnear relatives.
I see that the Monnett Family Genealogy website is no longer there, have you given up keeping that going?

need a date check
Could you double check the inscription on the grave of Joseph Burtsfield, buried in the Burtsfield cemetery? Find-a-grave notes it as "age 20", making his death date 1841 - but he is listed (presumably alive) with the family in the 1850 census. Could the inscription actually be "age 30"?

Eva Mae Atha
I apologize for not answering sooner but I just found your query concerning Eva Atha and her husband Thomas Dildine. Eva was a sister to my grandmother Rosa Atha and their children are my 1st cousins once removed so yes we are related. Rosa was my Dad's mother who was gone long before I was born. Eva and Rosa's father William Thomas Atha was my great grandfather.

And how are you related?

VanMeter
Wondering if you would know where Capt John VanMeter's b 1776 first wife Ruth Nelly Seabron or Seaborn was buried. I thought she might be in Rocky Fork, but do not see it on Find A Grave. She d 1812 in OH with him and 3 children. He m Sophia Clark in 1814 in Ross Co OH. So not sure where they were living in 1812. Nellie's last 2 children were b in Colarain twp Ross Co. It would be another puzzle solved if I could find this. Thanks.

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.

RE: James Van Meter
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.
Thanks.

RE: Eva Atha
Hi Stu,
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.

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.
