|Carol Buckwalter Small||Otto Elliott #88102915|
Hi Mr. Bremmer, In regards to the subject, Otto Elliott and his wife Bertha, the info on their pages regarding Joe Edwin Griggs is incorrect. Mr. Griggs is not their child. The person that originally posted this errant information has disabled the message option on their F/A/G page, so I don't know how to contact them to get this corrected. Mr.Griggs died on the same day, Sep 14, 2014, lived in the same town, as Donald Eugene Elliott. Their obits were published in the same newspaper and their services directed by Waters Funeral Home in Vandalia. The original "poster" of this incorrect information obviously got the details mixed up. That's why such information should be left to family members to handle. Thanks for your attention to this. I appreciate all the work you've done in documenting
Marion County information. Carol Buckwalter Small

Hi!My name is Susan and I had put a request on findagrave for Leeta Fern Elliott Walker Begley. She is buried at Grand View Burial Park.
They said they could not find the stone.
I am in contact with someone who said that would were knowledgable about the cemetery and that I should ask you if there is a stone for her. Her second marriage was to Charley Wayne Begley.I just thought I would reach out to you and see if you can help me?
Any help would be appreciated.

|Tree Leaf||Thank you|
Quentin: thank you for all of your hard work at Find A Grave website. Many of us have benefited from it. You have always been very helpful, with photos, etc.
I have to say I agree with you about people not always being as diligent in their work as possible. I share your dislike of simply posting 'raw data' since that is not the purpose of the Biography section. I also agree that people should not post documents and certs here, for various reasons. That is what Ancestry.com is for. Also, sometimes the information on those certs is personal or delicate. The Biography section should be a freshly written biography.
I also agree with you about people not copying and pasting obituaries. For similar reasons to the ones you stated (the names and information of the living can be used for ID theft), and also, most do not provide copyright required information or follow the site's rules on that. They should provide the source, credit, and also should ask the newspaper first if they really want to be proper.
A lot of people also post the photo from the obituary and the page owner cannot remove that.
By the way I have seen your photos pop up on Ancestry.com lately. I do not know if you have given permission. I noticed the same ones doing that have also copied and pasted the biographies I've written, from this site to that one (without credit, of course.) I know they didn't ask me first.
I've tried to discuss these things with people on that site and others. They get extremely angry. Apparently, credit means nothing and other people's work is always presumed to be shared.
Yes of course we post things so that others can benefit but that's different than having our work lifted, and used in any old way.
People also should be open to correction, and at least look into it themselves. Many are not. Well, I just wanted to vent alongside you in case it helped you feel better. I did and do appreciate your diligence and sense of propriety. I hope in time you will return to the site.

|ken benner||Mamie Foor Tombstone|
Hello Quentin, I would like to ask you if you know who fixed Mamie Foor' tombstone in Midway Cemetery? When I was there the stone looked like the one you have taken, today Aug. 9th 2014 I was there and seen someone had undug the grave out of the ground in which it had sunk into. Whoever done it I want to thank them for doing that as I had sometime wanted to see what I could do to make it look better as it looked like it was broken and just placed on top of the ground, but now it looks like it was just sunk way down into the ground and they dug it out and replaced it like it should. Thanks Ken Benner

|Catherine Smith Hall||RE: Orphan Train children|
These are my cousins aunts and uncles. At the time she gave me this information she did not know where the 5th child lived in the state of Washington. I did receive a query through Ancestry from that family and gave them my cousin's name to contact. I didn't ask my cousin for the info that she learned at that time. My cousin did not want me to repeat what she had told me.
I don't know where two of the children are buried. I don't think I should be the one to publish this information. I sent it to you so that you would understand how traumatic it had to be for that family and why their names changed.
It bothers me because I know from my 92 years what it was like at the beginning of the depression years with no work for parents to feed and house their families. It could have been my sister and me that took that train ride.
Thank you for your interest. I may contact my cousin in the future for more information and her approval for what I have already posted. I don't think she will mind now that all the children are deceased. I am trying to link my relatives on Find A Grave as much as the information is available. I do like obituaries and seek them out.

|Catherine Smith Hall||Orphan Train children|
Thank you for correcting your Cornell children's memorials by linking to their birth parents.
Five of their children were taken from Geneva, NY late at night while asleep in the late 1920's, by train to New York City, then onto the Orphan Train to Missouri to be farmed out and raised by non relatives.
Some of the children were adopted, others did not have a good experience, but the birth family kept in touch with each other. There were 10 children in all, some born after the 5 were taken. Those were years when no agency was there to keep the family together when the father did not have work.
I am in the process of adding this family to Find A Grave using the records my cousin sent to me over the years. This is her family.
I thank you for your interest and the beautiful way you set the record straight.

|Tree Leaf||Marksburys Marion county MO|
Hello. I was working on my Marksbury 'line' and I am trying to figure out whether the Emerson, Marion county, Missouri Marksburys are related to 'my' Marksburys.
I have some old newspaper clippings of incidentals pertaining to your Marion county Marksburys.
Thanks to an obit you posted I figured out your Mary Marksbury is not the one in my line; but I still think the two lines may be connected. Both originated in Kentucky etc.
So if you would like the newspaper clippings I have, post on my page and I will email you with those. Then you can delete this message if you wish.
I wasn't sure who among those who posted the Marion county Marksbury memorials might be related to them or interested. You mention doing work in that county.
