Samuel Wise ancestors
I am certain that the Samuel Wise in Mt. Tabor Cemetery is the one listed in the Wise/Rugh bible in my possession. My ancestor, James Harvey Wise of Monmouth, IL and Cass Co, IN, was a meticulous man. He provided on a sheet in his bible the names of all his father, Wm Wise and his father's brothers (1. Samuel 2. Abraham 3. Jacob 4. Willilam 5. Henry 6. Levi) giving their date of birth and where they died. On three of them he gave the exact date of death. For Samuel he has: "born 25 Nov 1813; died in Canton, OH."

On the same page, he gives a bit of history of the Wise & Ensminger families. I have additional info it this is your ancestor.

If you--or anyone else--would like a photocopy of the page from the bible, I will be happy to email it to you.

Find A Grave Memorial# 95919322
The spelling on this gravestone for the middle name is spelled differently on the stone than your spelling on the memorial page.

The stone spelling is Margial, not Margeal.

Find A Grave Memorial# 95919326
This is the memorial of Nancy Mary House. You have her 'spouse' listed as Edna Delois Mead.

Having seen the family cluster of gravestones, I believe this is Nancy Mary House's daughter and Nancy's spouse is probably Samuel A. Mead.

Hi Jason,

I noticed your memorial for Casey Yagger #101524491 in Cassadaga Cemetery, Cassadaga New York. Clarence "Casey" E. Yagger #24265966 is buried in Fredoinia, New York with his first wife Mae.

Thanks for your help with this correction.

Re: Thomas H. Farmer (1821-1907)
Mr. Walker,

First, I have no relations to Thomas H. Farmer. However, his service and that of his brother's, to the 149th Bucktails of Huntingdon Co. Penna.,(Company I) is of interest to this writer.

Thomas, and his younger brother, James H. Farmer, enrolled into the company at Mt. Union, Pa. in August 1862 by Capt. Geo.W. Speer.
Thomas Farmer served 9 months with the regiment before being discharged. He re-enlisted with the 3rd Penna. Heavy Artillery, Co.E and served 1 yr., 6 mon. & 2 days in the unit.
He is a deserved veteran of the Grand Army of the Republic.

*Cpl. James H. Farmer remained with the 149th PVI and fought at the Battle of Gettysburg, where he was wounded. He was killed in action on the Rapidan River Campaign at the Battle of Laurel Hill, Va. May 8th, 1864.

Thank you,
for posting Pvt. Thomas H. Farmer's gravestone.

Best Regards,
Michael Parana
Huntingdon Co.,Penna.

Busti Cemetery
I told Find A Grave that I didn't think you were active anymore, but they said you were. So was wondering about the edits you don't seem to be checking??? Not sure if you're even aware of the new edit system, but no way to get in touch with you!

Added by CABrown on Oct 01, 2016 4:28 AM

You've created 2 memorials for same person
Hi! Please check memorials of Dorcas Marble Graves- Find A Grave Memorial# 101524392 and Dorcas Graves Marble - Find A Grave Memorial# 101524422.
The correct named is Dorcas Graves Marble as she married Nathan Marble.
I've would of probably made same mistake as they had a son, Dr. Nathan F. Marble, and had myself a busy day only to get people / family members mixed up - or a long list of names transcribed from the cemetery and lose track.
Have a wonderful day!

Memorials made for persons still alive
I keep finding memorials you have made where the person is still alive.
You do realize that people buy plots and add headstones with their birthdate BEFORE they die?
Please quit doing this...don't make it about the numbers!

Cassadaga Cemetery
Hi Jason,

I have been here in Cassadaga work the CC Association updating records. The last two days we have been walking the cemetery trying to get more pictures of memorial. We noticed that you have added many memorial that we don't have in the office. Would mind sharing your source? I think it would great if the committee knew where to look. I will be here for a few more days and look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for all your hard work, Jason! If the recent edit requests for Portland and Westfield are overwhelming, I can change them to transfer requests. Just let me know I should do so. Thanks much!

duplicated memorial pages
I noticed that you have two memorial pages for the same person, mainly Jennie Munger Hopson. The two pages in question are #95919354 and #95919240. I will add the pertinent information to the page for Jennie Munger Hopson. You can deleter the other page.
Best regards,

I see you created the memorial for Helen (Wright) Komaroy-Hansen.
I found an old picture of her family in a box with some old home movies from the estate of a Janice Walker of Bellville Ohio recently purchased at an auction. Any relation to them?

Added by Aaron John Turner on Jun 12, 2016 3:39 PM

Jason, I sent another correction to the memorial #82361449. You seem to have added the wrong spouse. The memorial that should be added is #82361448. Also, I have emailed you about transferring a number of memorials and have not heard a word... :/
