RE: Nellie Viola Vrooman # 153274152
Checked the 1976 newspapers - she is listed as Viola I. Vrooman. 1959 articles for her husband's obituary refer to her as Viola I. Vrooman. So does 1974 article regarding death of her sister, Bessie Willey McDevitt.

She may have been known as Nellie as a young woman, but reverted to her birth name of Viola Ingle later in life.

RE: Nellie Viola Vrooman # 153274152
Also take a look at the FindAGrave FAQs - inserting ( or other characters prevents the search engine from finding her under the first name Nellie.

Try the search engine for yourself and you will discover that a search for

Nellie Vrooman with a death year of 1976 does not allow your memorial to be found. Also, a search for Viola with a death year of 1976 does not allow your memorial to be found.

RE: Nellie Viola Vrooman # 153274152
Cemetery records list her as Viola I. Vrooman. In fact, I had added a memorial page for her under that name, but when I compared the Vrooman records I found your memorial page.

I can add it as a jpeg and then delete it if you would like to see the page.

RE: Irene Temple Bailey
The best photos come with overcast skies. :)

Don't know if you got my edit for Emma Bailey (130941266), her mom.

Her marker was included in the Bailey/Bunn lot at Rock Creek.

You have her burial listed in Arlington National. Should I create a cenotaph in RC or is she actually interred at RC?

Just let me know so I can upload the pics!

On another note, you have some of the nicest bios on F-A-G always lovely to stumble upon one of your memorials.

William Wallace Nelson 1891-1959
Was wondering if there was any more information about people listed as family to him. Specifically, grandson James R Carlson and great grandson James Glenn Carlson. Hoping to find descendants that might have more information about his father George Horatio Nelson. was there an obituary connected somehow?

RE: U Dent
Thanks for your comprehensive explanation. My initial question may have been somewhat querulous so please accept my apology for that. I have received far too many edits that are incorrect and it is becoming rather irksome.

Can you please enlighten me as to the exact date of birth? The 1900 census has August 1864, but you have the 3rd as his exact date of birth.

Thanks for your help.

Find A Grave Memorial# 146659745

Please explain why you first sent an edit to a memorial at Rock Creek claiming the father's remains were removed there and to link to that.

Now, that memorial has turned into one for a sibling and you are asking me to link to the father's memorial in Missouri.

I would appreciate an explanation as to reasoning behind these edits.

Thank you for your help.

RE: William E. Sage # 144163464
All thanks to you, my friend! Plus I was able to link him to parents, but his wife is not in Find A Grave and is supposedly buried out of state.
