Bio and Links
Bio Photo I developed taphophilia in Nov 2007. I'm adding what I can, photos and accurate transcriptions, because stones deteriorate and there's no better time than now.

On a philosophical note: I believe that an unmarried woman's surname should never be listed in the "maiden name" field, and a divorced woman who returned to her maiden name should also have that name as her surname

William Fuller
Transfer of a Memorial
Hi Chis, My name is William H. Fuller would you please transfer my relative Gladys M. Pettis #50869559 memorial in Baltimore National Cemetary to me for management. Her Husband Otis Pettis is a cousin of mines. I would like to add her memorial to the rest of the Pettis family memorials I'm maintaining. Again, Thank you for all your work. William H. Fuller

Thanks for your observation, it deserves more attention, unfortunately time is not on my side, that's why I put the photo up. "Others have laboured and we have entered into their labours."

I am not sure what went wrong but I have uploaded another copy of the supporting documents for John Hann (Haltn).

Best regards,

Hi - At your suggestion I checked and found her with children. Your suggested name sounded like it was right, but found her under the other name. I added that information to her bio. It makes the memorial a lot nicer. Thanks for the suggestion. It made me look further.

RE: Libbie Vadnais Vadnis
Both spellings are in there now so if someone is searching it they will find her. It is spelled Vadnais on the headstone so I needed to have that there also.

RE: Libbie Vadnais Vadnis
OK, sounds good. I think it is spelled wrong but I have both names there so that works. Thanks!

RE: Multiple surnames or maiden names
How do I know which sir name to use? Birth records say one thing Death records say another... Census records have one name then the other...
