First a big THANK YOU to all the Find-A-Grave volunteers and the folks who keep it running!

Thanks to my Auntie A I got hooked on genealogy. Her 50+ years of research added to my own 20 years we've sorted out a lot of facts from fiction and put flesh on the bones of our ancestors.

Researching the following: Bottom, Russell, Laws/Lawes, Carpenter, Utterback, Godkin, Krebeck; Wynn; Mills; Hanks, and too many more to add here!

If I can be of help in any of the above, please feel free to ask, after all, sharing is one of the best parts of genealogy!

You responded by declining the edit at 9:19 AM, today.

I sent the SECOND correction, after you'd apparently deleted the nickname, at 2:11 PM, today, after I found the nickname gone. You accepted the second at 4:29 PM.

RE: taphophilia
I asked once. You declined. It was not only a valid edit, it was a necessary edit: nicknames do not belong in the maiden name field, especially with quotes around them. Read your edits more carefully before declining them.

You are welcome for the photo.

Yes, you may use the photo. If possible could you add the following

2015 by LKat on Find A Grave.

If it is not possible and/or takes away from your card feel free to use the photo.

Thank you very much for being considerate in asking if you could use the photo.

RE: Rolla T Bottom
You're very welcome. I took the photo by accident. I was looking for a grave for someone else and saw that Rolla Bottom was in the war, so I too his photo. Take care.

Robert P. Templin
You posted a photograph to Find A Grave Memorial# 37178475 which is the memorial for Robert Pierce Templin born in 1906 and died in 1956. Your Robert P. Templin headstone has dates of 1927 to 1956. I find nothing in his obituary to indicate this is the same man. Are you sure you've posted the photo to the correct memorial?

Sorry to report there is no marker for Donald.
He would have been in the plot next to Walter and Mabel and it has no marker. I have marked the grave with a bar to denote that.

Lizzie B. Wickersham - a duplicate?
Is the Lizzie B. Wickersham you entered in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Mercer County, KY the same as Elizabeth Bolling Wickersham, also listed in that cemetery? The dates are the same.

RE: Peetz
Very distant cousin - I am working thru the two volume Chapin descendants book and she is in there. (Book was published around 1920 and it did both the female and male lines.) Found her married name from her father's obituary. Thanks for the changes.
