RE: Paulina Ehringer Memorial
I found additional memorials that you created in the Lacon Cemetery for Paulina's children. A daughter, Louise (# 118952074), and a son, William Frank (#118952035). I would like to see a family link to there parents. A 3rd, Joseph A. (#118952164) is already linked to his parents. Florence Thompson (#118952119) is Joseph's wife. I would take management of these memorials if you want to transfer. Thanks

RE: Paulina Ehringer Memorial
Yes, I would be happy to accept management of Paulina's memorial. Please include her husband Albert (#118951950). We should probably keep their memorials managed together. Thanks again for creating these memorials.

RE: New edits procedure
I like this feature, too. But I didn't know it was there for a long time and the edits really piled up! :) Have a great day!

New edits procedure
Just wondering if you were aware that Find A Grave contributors now have edits of our memorials posted by other contributors and listed on our profile page that we are to approve, ignore or decline. The reason I ask is that I have at least one sent to you that hasn't been acted upon and I myself wasn't aware of this change until there were 37 of them on my profile!

RE: Mary Beeks Gray---Ray?
Thank you so very, very much. I had several family researchers bring this to my attention. Since I've been working on another family, I hadn't researched Mary as a sibling of my great great grandfather. I have most of the other siblings of his done. He was the only boy in the family that we know about. All of his sisters died before him. So, again thanks so much for taking time to stop by the cemetery. Mary has a sister in that cemetery, also. Sarah Morrison. Glad to find both of them now. Thanks for all that you do on Find A Grave. I love doing work for them. I work on the one in our town, Gunnison, Colorado. I'm doing the research for the Civil War soldiers on Fold3. About to be ready to go to the microfilm for their obituaries. Thanks again.

Mary Beeks Gray---Ray?
When I enlarged the photo of her stone, it appears to be RAY. Our family records and some researchers believe she is married to a RAY. Could you verify what the stone says? Sometimes, on Find A Grave, entries are made from photos, rather than the person making the entry actually having stood before the stone. Perhaps a better photo can be obtained that will clarify this? I would appreciate your help on this matter. Sincerely, a descendant from Colorado.

Henry Cemetery
All of the Stringers in this cemetery are related. Ervin and Helena (Kirchman) Stringer are my great great grandparents. Jessie Clifford, Lila Merida, Robert Dale, and Sidney are their children. Mabel was married to Jessie and Waneita is Roberts wife.

RE: Memorial# 80923576
You're welcome! I think its a good idea, not just for accuracy, but so others who can't visit the cemetery can read it for themselves. Plus, if the photo is added to a memorial entered by someone else, they might be able to add more info to it, if they can read the inscription, such as a verse! I like it! Have a great day.

Thanks for the great photos you've added! I just ran across them. It's terrific that you take time to include a close-up of the inscription.

Thank you for the information on the Divelbiss' in Henry Cemetery. Your time is greatly appreciated!

Thank you for the transfers of the Divelbiss' in Henry Cemetery. I have a question about one Harry E. Divelbiss (1930-1931) #96678043. Would you happen to know who he is buried by or with? I am not sure who he actually belongs to, so that I can place him in my tree. I am thinking that he is a son of Harry K and Zella P but am not 100% positive. Any light that you could shed on this subject would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for all the pictures and again for the transfers. Your time is greatly appreciated.

Re: Schlosser Family
I'm not aware of any connections in that area of Illinois, but you never know? If the Schlosser families in that area go back to Lehigh Co, PA or Maryland then they are probably some relation to my Schlosser family.

Varna cemeteries
I lived my entire life in Varna until I got married. My husband and I have walked all three cemeteries that are considered Varna cemeteries. We have taken photos and I have put them on the Findagrave website.

l. Varna First Lutheran Cemetery # 1 is also known as the Old Salem Cemetery. It is located north of town on the first road turning right as you go north out of town. Also known as the Swedish Lutheran Cemetery.

2. Varna First Lutheran Cemetery # 2 is also north of town on the main highway, only it is about 4 to 5 miles from where you turn to go to the old cemetery. Also known as the Swedish Lutheran Cemetery. This was established as the old cemetery was full and only a few family plots are available.

3. St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery or Varna German Lutheran Church cemetery is indeed located by the German Lutheran Church. This cemetery is located a few blocks from the main street of town. This is the only church that has an adjoining cemetery.

I hope this helps with your confusion. Let me know if you have any other questions.
