RE: McCulley headstone photo
In the rules set down by find a grave, it is better not to touch the headstone or clean it.

As for my own protection, I do not carry a bag only a little feather duster and camera. I usually replace the flowers and flags that have fallen out of the urns but other than that I try not to touch them.

I have gained quite an education about the person just by reading the headstone and what has been added to find a grave. It is interesting, I have found some where one has a long obit and yet doesn't mention the other person on the headstone at all! In fact, hasn't been put in find a grave.

The saddest are the infants who only made it that day and there are a set of twins that lived only a day.
My most fun is a double headstone where the "husband" and "wife" are more than 30 years apart in age! Hope it was a daughter but I don't know ---
Sincerely Marcia

RE: James Riley, again
Hello! Wow. Thanks for the quick reply. There is already a memorial in Parris-Riley Cemetery for their son, James (1837-1911). I sent an edit request to the memorial owner to link him to Joseph & Caroline. Unless there was a 2nd son named James? I'm just getting into this line so I am still uncovering information. Here is the link to the other memorial if you are curious:

We see that you mention McDonalds and Hills, also ancestors of my wife. Her mother was a Reynolds. We visit Wirmingham Cem. annually for Decoration Day. Wife Judy has ancestors in three or four cemeteries in Overton Co. Nice day to you.

RE: Impending Event
You're lucky - ours are about 100 miles (better than the 600 miles when we were in TN)but we still don't see them often enough - maybe 3-4 times a year (sigh). Everybody's just so darn busy, and of course we're old & crappy & have no life :)
Have fun!

RE: C R Wright
His second wife is buried in the same cemetery where he is, as far as I can tell. He died in 1918 and she died in 1940.

Thank you for the information. A family member misguided me on his location. I will be in contact with the creator of the original memorial. Thanks again!

Thank you for advice about uploading photos under type. I'm afraid I got a bit overzealous. Lol! I will be correcting them, thankfully, I haven't done too many!

RE: McGill, Ward, Huckins
I apologize for taking so long to reply. Adeline Ward McGill is my 4th great aunt. Not a really close relationship, but if you are not related I will be happy to take the transfer and manage her memorial. Thank you for the offer

I was totally unaware there were two memorials for Russ. I only created one so I'm at a loss as to why two showed up. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. How did you happen to catch it?

Yes--Madolyn and her mother, Goldie, are distant cousins through the Sullivan family.

RE: Randall Hansen (Nebraska)
Thanks for the information. I have left a message for whoever Doug is, to delete his memorial page for Randy, My brother is on vacation, so will have to wait until he gets back to hear what he did with that headstone. Hopefully, he knows that the military will furnish one for Randy. Don't know whether or not he has inquired about one yet.

Again many thanks. Hopefully, we will get this straighten out. As soon as there is a new headstone I will take down the picture of the old one and replace it on the memorial page I have for Randy.

RE: Randall Hansen (Nebraska)
I tried to find the other memorial site for Randy, but could not locate it. Where did you find it? I still haven't had time to contact his father on the headstone.

Many Thanks,

RE: Randall Hansen (Nebraska)
I really don't know if the headstone was moved or not. Usually in the veterans cemetery they are provided, so I will have to check with my brother to see if he removed it or not. Good question. If you want to see a picture of it there is one on Randall's memorial page. I will check with my brother in a few days. Thanks for thinking about it, as I never gave it a thought.

No. That is okay

RE: Randall Hansen (Nebraska)
I want to thank you for your inquiry. I had Randy's brother take a picture of the headstone and I put it out on his memorial page. They recently moved him from the Alliance cemetery to the Veterans, so I guess I forgot I had requested the photo. Anyway, thank you for taking the time to look for it and to inquire about where he was laid to rest. I really appreciate the work that people like you who do all this leg work for us. God bless you and many thanks again.

I'm sorry it's taken me a bit to get back to you on this. Vinnie is very distantly related to me so I don't really need the transfer. Thank you for the offer, though. I was just glad to find her.

May Phillips
The book that I got this from was the book that Gary Norris wrote. He says she was moved from the Phillips cemetery. My friend's mother was a Phillips and she doesn't want it deleted. If you would like to talk to her, I can give you her phone number.
