Bio and Links
Bio Photo Originally from the Philadelphia area, I now live in Columbus, OH. Researching Gilbert (Essex Co. MA), Poland (Essex Co. MA), Wheelock (Essex Co., MA/Nova Scotia, Canada), Andrews (Essex Co. MA), and Prince (Essex Co. MA) lines on Paternal side and Bennett (Philadelphia/N. Ireland), Farrell/Ferrel (Philadelphia/Germany), Schuler (Philadelphia/Wuertemburg, Germany) maternal lines. Researching Wife's lines: Priest (Ohio/Iowa), Gebhart (Iowa), Autullo (Ohio/San Bartolomeo in Galdo, Italy), Walker (Licking/Delaware Co. Ohio).

I love Find A Grave and I especially enjoy adding photos to memorials so that family members can visit their family member's grave at anytime. However, I ask that you respect my efforts. Please, do NOT copy my photos to without giving me credit. Simply indicate " 2006-2015 K.B.Gilbert on Find A Grave". I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them. Use for commercial purposes is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends and families headstones on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. You may use my photos on your own personal website if non-commercial, but photo credit is again appreciated. [borrowed with permission from J. Sullivan].

Thanks to Brooke in Henry County, Iowa, for getting me started. She found my wife's great-grandmother's grave in Iowa and posted it--we never would have found it without her!

RE: Spencer-Strong
Thanks for your quick response. I agree that it is an odd age for an adoption. I did note that it was a year after his father died; however, his mother was still alive. Perhaps it was an inheritance convenience, since his uncle's only child died as an infant.

I am still researching William H, as he is in the 1880 Census twice, once living with his parents and also in the home of his grandparents. (It sometimes took over a year to complete a particular Census, so that does happen.) Another oddity is that the 1900 Census reports that his mother has 2 children living of 4, but I count 3 children still alive.

I thought I might have the "wrong" William H, but in the 1920 Census, William H is married with a wife, 2 children and his correct mother is living with them. I am still trying to get all info to "add up." Thanks for your understanding and patience. I'll let you know if I find any info which refutes what I've passed on.

I found the voting quite hard to judge and tried to remember the guidance that importance doesn't equate to how famous a person is. I think votes should be out of 10 which would enable voters to fine-tune better. Hope this helps.

RE: Coin Designers

Did you appeal directly to AJ Marik? He can be a little more sympathetic than the others.

I'll see what I can do.

RE: Coin Designers

The few US coin designers that I submitted as famous were accepted on the fact they designed a coin that was accepted as a standard circulation by the US Mint. Pretty straight forward, at least that is what I presume.

I read your bio for Frank Gassparro and didn't see an issue with it. In my opinion he should be given famous status based on the the same reason that mine were accepted.

Tha administrators at Find A Grave don't seem to grasp it for this particular submission. They can by funny like this sometimes. I hope that you can finally get it accepted as famous, it is deserving of it.

Bennett mausoleum at Laurel Hill
Thank you for having posted some of the Bennett burials. You should have received today several requests for additions of relationships and edits of death dates. Ten of the individuals in the mausoleum were moved there from various locations at different times. The date which you reported was the date of burial in the vault not their actual year of death. I added the mother of the family and three of her children and would appreciate it if you would attach the other members of the family. You may be interested that the mausoleum was the third resting place for Sarah Bennett Gilbert.

Hello Mr. Gilbert:

I am sorry I did not know that. I will certainly pay more attention in the future.

Thanks for your hard work.
