Laura Kessler Hershey
Pet Haven Cemetery in Georgia
I just have a question that no one seems to be able to answer. I put about 80 pet names on find a grave in Hanover, PA. Another member said I should add Cat or Dog for their last name. I don't really like that idea. I see you have "unknown" for the last name which seems to be the better thing to do. Is there a guideline on this?? I've seen no last names on a lot of memorials but then you can't look them up because you need a last name to look someone up. Sorry for the long question!! Thank you for your help!! Have a great day! Laura

The Brackett line
Tangent, your great grandfather Daniel B. Brackett's father, William M. Brackett, was a brother to my great grandmother, Asinath Josephine "Jo" Brackett Westmoreland(Mem. # 8442478). Amazing what one finds when researching their family lines!

RE: Wilbur Glenn Marchman. ID# 121818767
No he isn't a relative. You may not even believe me if I told you. Short version is my girl friend and I live in Georgia not far from where he is buried. 5 years ago I took her to the cemetery in Cobb county and...well to put it bluntly, we didn't go home alone. I mean no disrespect to him or to this page or anyone on here but I have been trying for the last 5 years to get some info on him that would help us to understand some things. One being why is he buried alone so far off from anyone else. His grave sits on that little hill with no one else around him. A lonely sad sight when you visit. We just both feel a connection to him (and before this I would have laughed if someone told me these things that I am saying now) and we visit him often.

Hi Tangent. My name is James Tatum and I was hoping someone might be able to tell me something about Wilbur Glenn Marchman. You have the only info on him and I was wondering if you could help me. Thanks.

Thank you!
I greatly appreciated all the work you have done and the maintenance you performed today for my family. These are my Mom's Uncles, Aunts, Grandparents, and Great-Grandparents. She knew many of them well and will be pleased. We also know that Nellie, with her playful sense of humor, would have made the best of the misspelling of her name on her marker.
Regards,
Betsy

Hi,
I am working on Lafayette Cem 1 in NOLA and saw your note about trying to read your photos. I have posted new photos to your memorial that are easy to read if you would like to check them out. I also took the side panel if you would like to remove one of yours I could also post that or I can just post to the name on the side panel and you can see them there whatever is easier just shoot me a note if you need something.
Have a great day.
Bushy

RE: Howard & Nannie White graves
Thanks for your helpful suggestions. I wasn't sure how fast the current manager would make the change to include the plot info, but I will go ahead and try that first. Once I get the note it has been accepted, I'll redo the photo request and do it for all three. Your comments that some people don't see the notes is quite correct or they want the credit, so I shall follow your guidelines. Thanks.
Diane

Howard White Jr. too
I should have also mentioned that a son, Howard White Jr. may be buried in the same plot area as his parents. Please look for him too.

Howard & Nannie White graves
I have noted your comments in regard to having a plot location for burials in the Macon Memorial Park. I put in a request for Howard & Nannie White's grave marker photo last November and put the location in the "note" section because I don't manage their memorials. Are you still doing photos there? If so, they are in Section D, Lot 226. I didn't know if this is enough info to find their burial site? Diane

Periods
As is stated earlier. I will not be adding a period to any initials (first or middle).

I've read the recent FAQ changes and I did NOT see the word "required," as you stated. Nor did I see the word "retroactive." I have created over 50,000 memorials and I will NOT be retroactively adding periods.

There are three very good reasons for this...

First: Normal data entry conventions for databases is to enter initials without periods because the search and display feature should add periods and formatting when appropriate. This is convention for every database I have ever worked with.

Second: I have a friend who's first and middle names are simply the letters O and V, without a period. He answers to "Oh-vee" and takes offence when someone "assumes" then adds a period to his name.

Third and most convincing to me: The dropdown menus for prefixes and suffixes do NOT include a period. Why would they expect us to use one convention and they use a different convention?

I sent an e-mail to the Find A Grave staff two weeks ago asking for clarification. They have not replied. Until I hear otherwise I will continue entering initials without a period as I have for the last 50,000 memorials and I will NOT be retroactively editing my pre-exist memorials, PERIOD.

If you feel the need to continue this conversation, I will not be offended. Also, I do value your opinion. However, if we need to continue, please send your response via e-mail. I prefer not to use the message feature provided by Find A Grave for longer conversations.

Thanks,
jer

Charles & Cora Dame
Charles Dame is buried in Cave Hill Cemetery, not Cave Hill National. Cora is not listed in either record, but may well be buried next to Charles. If you'll correct the request I'll be glad to get the photos for you.
