Bio Photo Please do not place Death Certificates on memorials I have created. I find it distasteful and disrespectful to the family.

Most of the people I have entered into Find A Grave are not my relatives nor did I know them. If you would like any of the memorials I have created let me know and I'll probably transfer them to you if they aren't my relatives.

Kimberly Michelle Goad Noski
I noticed the Find A Grave memorial you created for Kimberley Michelle Goad Noski. She is also in my maintained family history. Is the obituary text you posted for Kimberley her complete obituary? If not, could you send me her complete obituary to:

James E. White, Co. K, 86th Illinois
Bruce, I hope this little message finds you well. I think at one time someone sent me a copy of the obituary of James E. White, of Co. K. If they did, I lost it. Is it possible that among your collection of obits that there is a copy of the obit of James E. White, who died on May 26, 1922? If you have one, or ever find one, would it be possible for you to send me a scan of it? Thanks, Baxter

Hi Bruce,

You requested a photo for this veteran, I believe the memorial is a duplicate of William Gerald Lucey # 932819 as the dates and location are the same. There also is a photo on LT COL Lucey's memorial page.

I like to read old newspapers (Library of Congress website) and to match the stories/articles I find to the memorials on Find A Grave. I believe I have found an article authored by Rabbi Zielonka in the El Paso Hearld for 10/7/1916.

Thought you might find this interesting.

H. E. Rast
Minnie Rast
Dear Mr. Hicks,
The information you inserted regarding Minnie Rast in the Prairie Lea cemetery is incorrect. I know from personal and family history. The maiden name of Minnie Rast was Rast. She is listed in the 1880 census in Enumeration District 150 for Washington County. She never married until the summer of 1881 when she wed Carl Neuhaus. This was a "shotgun" wedding since my grandfather Gus was born a few weeks later on Aug 9, 1881. The death certificate of Gus Rast, the son of Minnie. indicates the father of Gus Rast was Carl Neuhaus.
As for Carl, he disappeared, probably back to Germany. The death certificate of Minnie Rast is incorrect. Gus Rast was my grandfather and I lived with him in Brenham and I was with him when he died in November 1952.
For a cross reference you can find the Grave of Gus Rast in the Austin City Memorial Park and his death certificate is also available online.
Please correct your contribution or remove it entirely.

George W. Hicks 92178027
Hi Bruce,

The marker for George W. Hicks in the Belvidere Cemetery has George's birth and death dates as 1871 and 1958, which is very different than the memorial you have. His spouse is Carrie A. 1873 -1941. I have entered a separate memorial under George W. with the dates that are on the marker and included the photo of the marker. Are they the same person?
