Traci Fields
Kathie, thank you so much for your very kind words. I will pass your comments about the video to Traci's brother, Chuck. I, too, think he did a great job.


Because of you and other wonderful findagrave friends, Traci now has 5,260 flowers/tokens, and her birthday is a little over a week away. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! We appreciate you all so much.

I'm in awe! To show you more of what Traci was like, I posted the following on her memorial page,

"Traci, my angel, I can see the big grin on your face for all the flowers you're receiving on your memorial page. You're telling me, "Mom, why are you so surprised there are so many good people in this world? You should have known that....." "You're right, sweetheart, I should have known".

Traci was a person of strong faith, and GOD took excellent care of her, and helped her through all her hardships! Her faith never waivered.

GOD, bless them all, and thank you for your wonderful gift of Traci.

We've received an outpouring of so much love for Traci. I will try to get to everyone's site and leave a flower/token for at least one of their loved ones. However, there are so many of you, it will take me a while.

Sharon (Traci's mom)

Thanks for the edits.
Percy and the Smiths are ancestors of my wife. I was looking into her side at the request of my wife's grandmother, who was looking for HER grandmother's burial site... then started looking up and linking together that part of the family.

Token you left for Traci Fields
Kathie, thank you very much for the token you left for my angel, Traci. You are certainly helping reach my goal of 5,000 tokens by her birthday, November 20th.

I so appreciate the loving, moving tribute you left for my baby girl. It brought tears to my eyes that you would be so caring about someone you never even knew.

I appreciate you so much. You are a blessing to me.

Thank you again.

RE: Gardell Franklin Gay
First, thank you for your expressions of sympathy and for your prayers.

I'm having a very difficult time reading through the lengthy one-paragraph letter you left as a public message. And, since the letter doesn't include a link to the relevant memorials(s) or any of our previous correspondence, I don't know--and cannot easily determine--what you're talking about.

Please follow the site's rules and send any and all suggestions via a memorial's Edit tab, NOT by way of public messages; I've requested that contributors also send sources and any correspondence (divided into paragraphs, please) about memorials via the Edit tab. Use the "Suggest Another Correction" option. If we've had previous correspondence about a memorial, please copy and paste that into the SAC.

Thanks, Ellen

Marian Chaffin
I was reading your comments on Marian Chaffin and wanted to let you that Bert passed on 10/17/2014. You can find his obituary on I was one of his students back in the late 60's and remember seeing him and his wife together. Sucks seeing all these people we looked up to for so many years gone. But they are not forgotten.

Martha S. T. Read Diary
Dear Kathy, I am so glad you enjoyed reading Martha's overland trip diary. It is an amazing window into the past and into a time much more difficult physically than ours is, in just about every way thinkable!

When we travel I-84 I too think of those pioneers and how they had to get their wagons up and down those hills and mountains, while we are simply zipping along at speeds unimaginable to them. Have you stopped and seen any of the Oregon Trail exhibits at any of the rest stops? They are most interesting, especially the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center at Baker. You can see the wheels ruts still in the hillsides and then as you travel the freeway, you can spot them here and there along the way.

Take care, Marci

RE: Edward C. & Lulu E. Viereck
Hi Kathie, Edward's wife, Lulu Edith Hall, was my husband's Grand Aunt - one of her sister's was my husband's Grandmother.

I don't really have much information at all on Edward - I wasn't even aware that he was a doctor - but I do know he was in the US Navy. To my knowledge, Edith (Lulu went by her middle name) was never in the military and I suspect that she just happened to own a Navy blouse.

No, I don't mind at all that you're doing research on the family. Are you related?

RE: Mary Elizabeth Hagedorn Chamberlain
No upset here---actually wanted to thank you for the flowers and the thoughtfulness---we believed that Mariah had died in Los Angeles, CA---Makes sense that she was buried near her Cleveland "home" and son. Thank you again for your endeavors. We are having a problem with her mother's maiden name---Perry or Petty? does the cemetery have death certificate information? ---memorial #57759813

RE: Eliza (Pickle) Burkhart
My mistake.
You are correct.

in Asbury Cemetery, I saw so many Pickle/Pickel memorials not showing the same spelling as in the photo, I tried to get them corrected.

Sorryto inconvenience you.

Mary E Hagedorn Chamberlain
Mary was the daughter of Luther Hagedorn/Hagedon and
Fannie Perry/Petty Hagadon of Cleveland, Ohio and Green Bay, Wisconsin --- Fannie died in 1848 and Luther remarried. Luther was a captain on the Great Lakes.
How did you know of "Mariah" (as my family referred to her) ?

Kathie, wow, you do have your hands full! I hope and pray your sister will be alright. Back problems are never fun; hope the surgery improved her situation.
Hope your kitty is OK, too. I've got 2 cats myself, and they do leave paw prints on your heart!
Take your time; no rush!!

Diane Parker
Pvt Charles Samuel Place
Thank you so much for your touching tribute to my Grand-Uncle that you left as "flowers" on his Memorial Page. When I was able to have his page on the "Virtual Tour" I was so hoping that people, like yourself, would be able to read about his short life and his family who loved him and to see the photographs of him and to know of the "Ultimate Sacrifice" that he made for his Country. My Grandmother loved him so much and I grew up feeling as though I had always known him. Another "Place" cousin, Pvt Harry Place (Henry Alexander Frederick Place) #56682495, also gave his life in France for Canada during WWI. We are so grateful to the website for the opportunity to honor our brave soldiers and our other family members. There have been many, many wonderful people like you who have left flowers for Charles.
Thank you again!

Andrew Jackson Gray Westbrook
Wondering if you can give me some assist. I have a marriage record for Andrew J.G. Westbrook marrying his cousin, Julia nee WESTBROOK (daughter of Charles Westbrook and Winifred nee SIMMONS)on August 8, 1849 in Lowndes Co., MS. One child, Vernon to this union. I see that his memorial is showing Falia STARK as a wife. Can you offer me some opinion? Connie

Mikala Dent
RE: Transfers
Mikala is now Sister Dent she is service the Lord in Tennessee. Some of the people on find a grave have become to pushy and start demanding that she transfer their third cousins 2nd wife to them.(or some other distant relative.) When I tell them she will be gone for two years they get made and report her to find a grave, who tells them she does not have to transfer a person who is not in your first 4 children, parent, grandparent or great grandparent. She didn't mind sharing or transferring but she was not going to be bullied. Now she has given up and said start transferring to the people who left flower on find a grave and that is why you got the people you did.
We are all volunteers here I hate it when people have unrealistic expectation of other people time. If people are a little more polite maybe it would not run off the people who took the time out of the day to go walk around the cemetery and take the pictures. Thanks for taking over!!
