|Marie Bonafonte||RE: Dr George Wesley Spencer|
I did read the PA one and very interesting. In fact, after reading it, I did a little searching for him and found his LW&T which directs re-interment after his estate was settled and whatever cemetery his wife was eventually planning to have herself buried. Looks like he died in May and probate was started in June from the various probate listings that I found for Pittsburgh.

|Marie Bonafonte||Dr George Wesley Spencer|
I received your information and thank you for it. I am not related to this person or his family - just a volunteer walking in cemeteries and then noting information on FindAGrave.com. When I find a number of burials in one area that seem related, I do try to take the additional step to check on relationships and then link, if there is a relationship. So, unfortunately, I'm not able to provide any additional information other than what is already noted. However, you did mention that there is another burial designation for Dr. Spencer in PA - it would be helpful to know the other cemetery's name so that I can make mention in his NY memorial. The other thought is that I could transfer his family memorials to you since it looks like you have serious interest in Dr. Spencer. Let me know. Marie

Thank you so much for sponsoring Dr. Watling's memorial. I tried to have it be "famous" but Findagrave didn't agree with me! Thanks for recognizing this dental pioneer!

I received a message that you have sponsored the memorial I created for Philander. It is the first time since I started as a member on Find a Grave that one of my memorials has been sponsored. Thank you!
I would love to know your connection to Philander.

I just added a postcard of Dr Ortman here. I have this original post card from my grandmothers archives. I really have no idea why it was in there. Is this something you would like to have?

|Dexter Taylor||RE: Claude Wildes|
Hi again Ben - I looked through the local papers again for the 4 weeks after Claude's death and there is no mention at all. I suspect he found himself at the county hospital in Monroe and died there and thus ended up at the county subsidized cemetery in Monroe. I notice his brother was in Island County which is a much less populous county not too far away and they may not have had the facility to take in Claude. As far as transfers I stick with the FindAGrave guidelines - parents, grandparents, children, but am always happy to add whatever you want on the memorial.

|Dexter Taylor||Claude Wildes|
thank you for sponsoring Claude Wildes' memorial and posting the great business card/photo. Usually someone just wants a memorial transferred to them and then does nothing. I am clueless as to why or when Mr. Wildes moved to Monroe and why he does not have a grave marker. There is no mention of him in the local paper. Perhaps he did not live in Monroe but is merely buried here, as it was the county cemetery, for those who did not have anyone to deal with their affairs.

|KDQ||Dr. George Grant Lemley Memorial # 156037404|
Thank you so much for sponsoring Dr. Lemley's memorial.
I love the images you posted.
The poetic "Age of a Horse" was great.
It's so wonderful to see the face of George. He was a handsome guy.
Do you have the year the advertisement was printed? In the photo Dr. Lemley appears to be about 30 years old. I looked for an Dr. N. Pease in Omaha in about 1906 based on how old George looked. I came up empty handed.
We appreciate your work very much.

You should stop and check on his memorial again. He treated cancer without using a knife.
Dr. James Keck thoroughly understands, and is eminently successful in the treatment of all chronic and difficult diseases of both sexes and all ages, having made a specialty of their treatment for fourteen years.

|History Hunter||RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 98325618|
As noted in the caption of his photo, it is hanging in the Darke County Ohio Courthouse with about another 150 veterans of the Civil War.
Under his photo is info about his unit- Company B 32nd unit of the Ohio Volunteer Infantry. I'm not sure what the red letters C.M. means.
If you would like any more info on him that I can find , let me know and I will search at our library etc.
You created a great memorial honoring him. I really enjoyed reading his bio.

Just wanted to say thanks for your sponsorship of Dr. G.G. Wilkins' page. I continue to look for information on this controversial dentist, and my hope is to one day be able to post a picture of him on the site.

Dear Dr. Ben, I am a dental hygienist and find it strange that I was drawn to take a photo of a somewhat famous dentist's tombstone there. I have actually done that before and find out later they were dentists. I am glad you will be adding more info about Dr. Jay. Nice photos!

|David Edsall||RE: Susan Perkins Marsh, Memorial# 89749925|
The only reservation I had was the retention of her double married name which was originally taken from her gravestone - Arnold being from a prior marriage; that belongs in her bio. (See Find-a-Grave FAQs). Otherwise, no problem. Thank you for providing the links to her parents and her husbands. Best wishes, David
