Gen. James a. Ekin
This a family member of mine. I'm trying to link him to his mother's and his children's memorials, which I manage. Would you be willing to transfer his memorial to me, so I can correct the multiple entries? Thank you.

General James Adams Ekin
The following paragraph comes from the book "The Old and New Monongahela by J. S. Van Voorhis:

Gen. James A. Ekin was engaged in boat bldg. bus. in Elizabeth (PA) at the outbreak of the Rebellion, having succeeded his father-in-law, Sam. Walker. He entered the US Army and in a short time was made Asst. Qrtr. Master, and in time attained the rank of Col. and Brevet Brig. Gen. He con'td in the svc. after the war was over, stationed at San Antonio, TX, and later at Louisville, KY, where he d. in Mar., 1891.

Additional comments:
James Ekin's wife was Diana Craighead Walker which is Find A Grave # 44090159 that can be seen partially to the right of James's tombstone. Diana was one of 10 children of Samuel Walker and Nancy Josephine Speers of Elizabeth PA. Diana had a 4th child William M. Ekin buried in Cave Hill Cemetery that is not yet linked. Nor is Diana linked to General James Ekin.

Diana is the grand daughter of Diana Craighead 1780-1853, and Major John S Walker 1770-1856 who fought in the War of 1812 and built packet boats for the Lewis and Clark Expedition in Elizabeth PA. Diana's uncle Major Robert C Walker married Eliza Blaine the sister of politician James G. Blaine.

John Frederick Finerty / Your photo
Steve,
Any chance you know whose headstone is next to John Frederick Finerty's? It may be his wife, Sadie Isabelle Hennessey, died 1933. You took a photo of his headstone which included her adjacent headstone.
Find A Grave Memorial# 12675031
Calvary Cemetery, Evanston, Cook County, Illinois, USA

Thank you,
Arnold

Hi Steve,

I inadvertently transferred this memorial to you instead of another member. (I noticed this has happened to you before!)

Basil Kidwell #93619567

Would you please transfer it to Then and Now, #47715278. Thanks.

I appreciate your help and apologize for the inconvenience.

Sincerely,
Laura Ranville

Transfer Error
Steve, a memorial transfer was mistakenly made to you by Nancy Abraham. She meant to transfer it to me but entered the wrong Member #. The memorial is for Florence Ray Ellis, and its #70742527. Nancy emailed to let me know what happened. Would you please either transfer this memorial to me (Member #47737682)or back to Nancy so she can transfer it to me? Thank you for your help.

Joel Walker Sweeney
On Joel Sweeney's memorial (Memorial# 7422234) You link Missouri as his spouse. This is incorrect. Missouri was his sister. As far as any research that has been done, Joel never married. I did a lot of research for Bob Carlin when he was writing, "The Birth of the Banjo - Joel Walker Sweeney and Early Minstrelsy"
