Bio and Links
Bio Photo I developed taphophilia in Nov 2007. I'm adding what I can, photos and accurate transcriptions, because stones deteriorate and there's no better time than now.

On a philosophical note: I believe that an unmarried woman's surname should never be listed in the "maiden name" field, and a divorced woman who returned to her maiden name should also have that name as her surname.

Would you like me to transfer this account to you? It looks like she might be in your family tree. I just was updating the cemetery.

Nickname as maiden name
Thank you "Oh Bearded One", for finding these stupid nick vs maiden name boboos. I had inherited some of this former contributors' memorials, riddled with mistakes and inaccuracies. Well, that's why she is no longer with us. Thanks for your help.

Must be the system then, because I wasn't here to decline the edit this morning . . .
Added by Deekay on Apr 25, 2015 2:50 PM
I didn't decline it . . .
I processed the edit . . . contrary to your belief I CAN read. I don't doubt you got that message, but it wasn't me, I processed the only edit I received from you as evidenced by the memorial being correct.

RE: taphophilia
For your information, I didn't not decline your edit, I got home at 2:40 and just logged in. I guess in your hurry to "FIX" my very old error I didn't do it fast enough for you.

Evidently when you developed this, you lost your manners. "ASKING" someone to make a correction is appropriate, TELLING them is rude.

"S. E. H."; and if so might match up with an extant memorial.

I've made some correction by adding the foot stone photo to the Sarah E. Harris and deleted the other one. thank you so much for the information.
