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!

Dr. Frank WESTON memorial
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.

Ben - Didn't Susan die at Woodstock, VT, where she is buried? David

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

Thank You,

STEVENS, Felix (G)
I did a bit of research before adding the middle name. Yes, I believe there are several Felix Stevens in Harrison County and the local libraries and other researchers in & near Corydon convinced me to create this memorial. The book that claims he is buried in that cemetery contained only the name "Felix Stevens" and no dates or middle name.
3 women named "Mary Stevens" and no dates, middle names, spouse or maiden names are also listed in a book as buried there but Findagrave deleted 2 of them, suspecting them to be the same person.
So much disagreement makes it difficult to finish a project but, as you know, wrong information makes the job much easier.
I would appreciate learning more about the Stevens families (at least 7 of them) in Harrison County.
Thank you for your help and for your letter.
What do you recommend ?

Edit for birth year declined. Both the NY National Guard Service Record and his passport application have 1871 as the year of his birth, not 1868.

Thank you for sponsoring the memorial of Dr. Richardson. I am working my way through the entire cemetery at Reading and within a year or two at most I should have the whole cemetery photo-documented in it's entirety.
