Hi Russ! I notice you have listed, at the top, Eliz. Stein. Brin. McC. 1800-1889, & farther down, under 'Sib.s', E.S. B. M. 1800-1889. Something in there seems off somehow.
Also: Please, if you can, send me any info you have about her life. Thank you! Happy Thanksgiving!

Findagrave #49492112 clarification
Ooops! I, too, am a Find A Grave volunteer. I want it to be clear that I do not expect you or anyone else to go tromping through the snow or in the blistering cold to fulfill a photo request! :) It can wait for better days. Thanks!

I have submitted a photo request for the above headstone. I think John may be the husband of my ancestor, Catharina E. "Kate" Barlow Bowen. Hopeful there may be more info on his headstone and/or there may be one nearby for Kate. Either way, can you direct me to a source to learn more? How do I access the Civil War pension records? Any guidance appreciated. THANK YOU, whatever the result, for your hundreds of volunteer hours and your dedication to memorializing our country's veterans in particular.

Change in e-mail address

My name is Judy Zunker. I am a member of find a grave, but my e-mail address has recently changed.
It WAS Now it is: I would like it changed on my profile page and anywhere else that it is listed wrong, but you don't have a link for this.
How do I change/update my e-mail address so people can find me?

There are several things wrong about my family and I need to get it straightened out, but don't know how to do it. I seem to come across roadblocks wherever I go.

Thanks much
Thank you for fulfilling the photo request for Dorothea Manger at WLH. I truly appreciate your making the effort, and posting the photos with a very clear explanation of where her unmarked spot was in the lot. I had hoped whoever might photograph her place of rest would be greeted with an elaborate marker since her husband was a noted sculptor, but alas, no such luck... But very glad to have closure on this. Thanks once more.
