Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got the genealogy bug when my great-aunt's grandson sent me a photo of my 2nd great-grandparents on their 50th wedding anniversary with the entire family. Only 4 people in the photo were identified. Since that time I have contacted relatives I did not know I had. I have also been able to identify everyone in the photo now. I have done research not only on my surname but grandparents, 2nd great-grandparents on both sides. I especially love doing research on my mother's parents because Parke County has a great website. I am at a stand-still on my own surname as I don't know exactly where in Prussia my 2nd great-grandfather was born. I always love to get in contact with new "cousins".

Just looked and there are over a dozen SAC's at Webster. A number doesn't show up on your EDIT tab up to the right under your name? Just might be a quirk. That's the first thing I look at anymore to keep up on the corrections. It will turn red if there a over 20. I think that alerts Find A Grave that someone is not doing them -makes it easier to identify the inactive people now. Just guessing. I did put Dollie's date on. See if you agree, I did it through the Edit. geraldine

Glad to hear from you, Jim. There is a pull down that lets you check remaining edits you have submitted. That is how I check and try to let people know because believe it or not, some still don't do the easy way. Glad that was of help. I do look on all 4 sides but not always even legible to know if it really is an engraving there. There were MANY that had the metal funeral home stakes & no way of knowing, several broken or only the foot stone. Hope we can get to Denman sometime this month. There is lots going on and Cliff wants to go also. Mr Webster said he'd take us to it. geraldine

your message regarding charley fleming
Hello Jim, sorry I have a new computer and have not been able to see email so sorry for being late in sending this answer to you. Yes, I know the memorial is a duplication. Since I visit that cemetery every year and it is on my family's private property I requested transfers at one time but the earlier creators did not want to transfer and too did not make the changes, so, in order for the information to get out there on the family, I chose to crate my own memorial which has the proper information. BTW, was home in late August and early September and visited the cemetery, the family is not forgotten!

There's already a photo posted to this memorial.

Believe the above memorial is a duplicate of mem. 63137507 of which you've also requested a photo.

If you're related, you might ask for a transfer or ask the last contributor to delete theirs and let the earlier one remain.
