RE: Sorry for the delays
No problem whatsoever. You've always been great to 'work with' on the pages.

Sorry for all that you and your family are going through.

Will check through past sent edits next week.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Photo of stone of Lacy Morris #77872450
Hello - I have been informed that the photo of the stone you uploaded to Lacy Morris #77872450 is actually the stone of his wife. Specifically she wrote:

"This is the stone of his first wife wife, Sarah. I've seen this broken stone & read/transcribed it. It is not Lacy's. If you look really close at the top it says, 'wife of'. Her name, Sarah, is broken off but should have been photographed because its close to this part of the stone. "

That first wife Sarah is at this memorial #77871811 Could you please delete the photo from Lacy and add it to Sarah? And, evidently I have Lacy in the wrong place but I didn't want to delete this duplicate memorial without saving your headstone photo of Sarah. Thank you

Hi there! You were nice enough to set up a memorial for one of my great grandmothers, Kate Robinson Patterson, #86686054, and even added a pic. Can't thank you enough.

Recently I started doing serious work on the women in my family tree. And just recently I was able to crack Kate's code! Thus, I would like to make a couple changes and additions to her Find A Grave page.

First and foremost, I would like to update her maiden name to Robertson instead of Robinson. Robinson is the name I found in not only my family bible with her husband William, it's also in the Fleming Family Genealogy - her husband William Patterson's mother's family - her inlaws.

I suspect that the translation of her name occurred because that is what the family actual thought her last name was - not a big leap from one to the other! Possibly that is what is also in the cemetery records. When she died, her brothers and other family had moved on already so no one was there to correct William if he spelled it one way instead of the other. And the children were young when she died so they all took William's word, and thus recorded that name in the bible. But the census records as well as the marriage records indicate Robertson is the correct spelling. I would like to have both names noted in the information section for those looking for her in the future.

Additionally, Kate is found most often in the official records under her full name of Catherine instead of Kate. I also discovered that Catherine is actually the middle name - she was named Pamela (like me!) but never used that name as she grew. So, officially, her name is Pamela Catherine 'Kate' Robertson Patterson.

And I'd like to give her a birth date. Based on the consistent census responses and her headstone, she was born in Kentucky in 1843. When she died in 1880, it was one month after the census was taken where she stated she was 37, which jives with all but one of the other census dates (only one gave 1844). If the missing 'months' on her stone is a number of 10 or 11, that easily places her birth in 1843 yet she could still be 36 years old and on the cusp of her birthday when she did the census and then died, easily accounting for the 37 on the census and 36 + something on the headstone.

Thank you again for taking the time to photograph the stones and post them with the information you have gathered. I know how much time that takes - I've uploaded a good share of photos of stones here mself - and it is invaluable to genealogists like me! Thank you thank you!

Thank you.

Hi Quentin,
I want to thank you for the transfers of my relatives.
I appreciate so much the work you do for FindAGrave. I know there is a lot of time and money involved in going to cemeteries and taking pictures, adding them to the site. Just know that what you do will matter in years to come for so many.

Respectfully

ps
Hello - I have thought about this further and then I keep logging out before sending this thought.

I think it is OK to simply edit the phrase to the following:

"took place at 12 o'clock, noon" or similar to that..."took place at 12 o'clock, p.m." (They used smaller case then.)

On second thought, however, I do think the original accurate, as they sought to differentiate AM from PM or noon from midnight although, common sense, no funeral would be given at midnight. So it's clunky regardless.

But, I think that might have been their thought.

Query, re: Viola
Thank you so much for posting the obit(s) and for the query.

I searched for her on the database again but this time that particular obit did not come up. That often happens as that search engine is a bit wonky- many things come up accidentally via other searches, and (or, since), if the ink is a bit smudged it can misread the name, etc.

I believe that must have said 'forenoon' as I seem to recall that word and it's a word they were fond of using in those days.

I try to type exactly as I find things (other than obvious 'typos' that would make everyone look silly, but which are rare), because their style, punctuation, paragraph breaks, capitalization and even spelling, use of hyphens etc. can differ so much, to today.

One thing I do change is the word "employe" no one spells it that way today and everyone would think it a typo. I suppose they only used "employee" then for the feminine usage, similar to "fiance/fiancee."

Sorry, I digress; if I find the original I will revisit the query but it is either an overlook by the writer or editor, or on my part. I sometimes type for 10-12 hours straight...Am afraid I get a bit bleary.

So I can't say for sure but that likely was meant to say "forenoon." My apologies.

And Happy New Year by the way.

RE: Thank you
Thank you very much. I have noted your kindness in the past, and appreciate it very much.

So we both have Schallers in our tree. How interesting! I didn't know any of this before I began exploring my roots about 5 years ago, and now, I find that often I share roots with a lot of people who hail from the same area.

Thank you for your generous offer. I will have to take another look at my tree and see which ones I have info I'd like to continue adding etc., but it's such an interesting line. Tempting offer!

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.

Williams
Is it possible that James Byrd Williams born 1817 died 1882 is buried in the Palmyra cemetery? His wife was Patience Mahala. I have his death in Polk Co. A cousin has him elsewhere. I see you have a J.T. Williams in Palmyra. I am at a loss. Thanks!

Charles Howard headstone.
Hello, Quentin. I am interested in the headstone of Charles Howard, buried in Marion County, MO. He is supposed to be buried in Minor-Sand---- Cem in Hannibal. This Charles Howard was buried in Greenwood Cem, Palmyra, Marion Co, MO and was born after my Charles Howard (also spelled Harward) . Do you know of any other Harward/Howard surnames in either of these cemeteries? Is there a record in Marion Co, do you know for all the burials in these two cemeteries that would include Harward or Howard? I am looking to verify my Charles, who the headstone says died 1889, but should be 1883-it is difficult to red on the stone. Can you direct me to where I might inquire about seeing a list of burials in either of those cemeteries, with an address or email address? My Charles lived in Palmyra from after 1865 to his death in 1883, and this listing at Greenwood, might be a relative of my Charles that I am unaware of. Would it be common to live in Palmyra and be buried in Hannibal as the F-A-G site gives? I'm not sure ow far apart they are. Any help for a list of burials in either of those cemeteries would be most appreciated. Thanks , Dar at kincatcher@hotmail.com

Sometimes the essence of this poem does get miconstruded
Dear Ancestor
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
