RE: LaVerne Cook parents
Sorry, I agree with you. I think I meant to add the birth & death dates. They are on the gravestone.

I deleted the edit request.

Thank you and please accept my apologies

RE: Captain Smith's wife
I did ask that your correct information be added-I maintain a folder for these things and check after 30 days-then I get that admins at findagrave to make the changes.

It means a lot to me that you transferred her to me without my asking. She's a little piece of my family history that needs TLC. Thank you

requests at Woodmere
I have been trying to get info & maps from Woodmere, but they are understaffed & unwilling to give info to an Find A Grave member.
Woodmere's policy is they can only give info to "family members."
So if you can provide grave locations for your all requests, we will do our best to fulfill any requests we can.
