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.

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.

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.

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.

Wilkins' sponsorship
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.

RE: Dr Jay Albion Heidbrink
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!

Would you like me to transfer the management of memorial #114543507 to you? As a society, we are not related, but for you to sponsor the memorial makes me think you have a better interest.

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

RE: Edit
Thanks, doesn't look like we're related but it's such an unusual name I thought I'd check. Ours went from Backhaus, to Backus and a few other forms thereof. Have a great weekend!

Good morning, you sent me an edit on Elisha Backus Perkins. I was wondering where you found his middle name and if you know if it's a "family" name. I ask because it's one of our family names and I don't think I had Elisha in our tree. Thanks for your help. S
