Thank you for providing the links for Elizabeth McCormick's parents. Please let me know if you would like to maintain her memorial as she is not part of my family.

Your help is appreciated,

RE: Who is the records keeper at RC?
Thanks! I'll keep an eye on RC's photo requests too. :)

RE: Christian Debow # 127635100
I would love to have him.I'm still digging through to find out more about them. I have found some records of his but nothing about Barbara yet.
Thanks again,

Christian Debow
I was informed that you had a lot of info on him. #127635100. My 2x great grandmother was his 3rd wife. I was curious as to how much information you did have on Christian and if you ever discovered Barbara's maiden name. It is still a mystery to me and my grandmother whom was born after she passed.

If you have no direct connection and no one else has claimed a connection, I would be pleased to be transferred his page as I find out more about him. Although, he is no blood relation so I would be more than happy to leave it to someone who was.

I greatly appreciate any help or direction you can give.

Thanks again,

Ira E Randall # 101701273

I received your correction suggestions for Ira and his wife Elizabeth # 101701194. I see that you manage several other memorials for the surname Randall. I'm not related to Ira & Elizabeth Randall. Would you like them transferred to you?

RE: Names on gravestones
Thank you so much for your wisdom and guidance!

I did keep the memorials up - but, chose not to use the word "cenotaph" only because laypeople like myself, might not know the definition of the word. I made it clear the that memorials were not in the interment records for RC.

I really cannot speak for the quality of the interment records as my working with them has been so recent - only that I have heard folks complain about the typos and omissions.

I have had only one instance where I found and omission. A very prominent family, surname Schutt, that were not included in the RC online records (memorials had obits showing interment at RC) and I accidentally stumbled upon thier burial vault while looking for someone else in the same section.

I have found misspellings more than I would like.

I will keep in mind, for the future reference, to cross check records and note on the memorial page if the interment is not in the cemetery for which I have created the memorial.

One final note. Alice, born in 1862 and buried, 1928 contrasted with David Patterson Smith born 1919 and died 2008 it seems crazy that there is no record for him in the RC database seeing that he is the most recent burial record. Who is the records keeper? Who authorizes changes to the stone?

Oh lordy, please have a general answer to this question!

Thanks for all your help!

To upload or not to upload, that is the question
I need some advice, if you have a free moment.

I took a photo of a headstone which includes 7 family members.

I started creating memorials for the ones that are not on Find A Grave and double checked the interment records - which show that only two of them are in the lot in Section H.

There is an infant son that has a headstone in Missouri (linked on Find A Grave) but also memorialized on the parents headstone in DC. Which got me thinking maybe only Henry and Alice are buried in DC and just wanted to memorialize their family. Is that possible?

The photo request was for Dr Henry E. Patterson # 42638445. I added his wife (now linked) and the infant was linked already to Henry's memorial.

The additional memorials I made are:

# 144926439
# 144926497
# 144926390

and I need to add more...

Do you think I should take them down, because they are not in the interment records or keep them up because RC's records are not the best?

Interment was in Section H, Lot 074.

Thanks in advance for your assistance. I'm still learning!

RE: Newbold Noyes
Obviously, I enjoy this work! :) I've got Sections 20, D, F, G, O and a particularly pesky W to complete and I am off to Glenwood again. I have wreaked enough havoc on the RC photo requests page!

Someone else put up a photo request for the Women's Commonwealth headstone. Very interesting history! Did I miss why they moved from TX to DC?

RE: Re: Newbold Noyes

Sorry to bother you. I just noticed that you didn't request it.

Have a great day!
