Current projects include getting my the Reuben George Sr research on-line at Rootsweb and maintaining sites for Andrew County, MO and Butler County, OH USGenWeb sites. Another project (Interactive Genealogy) is to maintain genealogy, history, map, and travel sites for each state plus American Indian, Hispanic, military, and travel destination pages. Fun!
I looked in the local papers obit which goes back 10 Years and they do not show a obit for any Edward Smith. Which to me seems unusual with a common last name like Smith you'd think a Edward Smith would be listed numerous times. Sorry I couldn't help you.
RE: Alvin Shipman Nancy, I blew up the photo of Alvin Shipman. Being born in 1783 and passin away in 1858 would calculate at 75 yrs. A larger photo looks as if his death date was Mar 12 1862. This would then calculate at 79 years. This is not for me to argue with a much more interested person. I decided to change the date to 1858 because you are the individual doing the research. If for any reason you wish to rechange this date please contact me. If you belong to Findagrave I can also transfer this grave site to you. I am very happy to know someone is interested in Mr Alvin Shipman. I might add that having been to this cemetery I thought it was an extremely peaceful and beautiful.
RE: Lillie Clara Berger Ertel I'm sorry but I really don't know how to help you. If using the Edit tab doesn't work, I really don't know what else you can do. I don't know if you could find some way to contact someone who runs Find-A-Grave and go that route and see if they can help you. I do apologize for not being of more help. Since you created and "own" the memorial you should be able to edit it. Best regards, Bertha
RE: Lillie Clara Berger Ertel You have requested that I add that Lillie Clara Ertal's maiden name is Berger. I am not able to do that. You are the one who created the memorial so you have the ability to change it. There should be a link for you to click on which let's you do that. Best Regards,
