My philosophy is that since this is a grave site memorials should reflect information shown on grave marker. I will add other info in notes if sources are provided.

Thank you for the correction to this memorial. The little monument was placed by the church and all I knew about him was through others who commented on this memorial. Thank you for all you do with find a grave. bren

RE: Memorial# 139609447 William Green
Hi, Marj. I have contacted my Green expert and gave her your email. She said she is juggling a few projects, but will be happy to contact you when she has a break.

Memorial# 139609447 William Green
Just curious if you received any response regarding your question to gst14 of 14Jan2016 about the connection between the William's. I correspond with a Green author who lives in Ohio who shares the same DNA based conclusion of no tie.

Jeremiah Green - 42236290
I am letting you know that I got the changes done.
I didn't notice that it said Rev. it needed to say Pvt. Because that is what he was.
I did leave the bio with an e at the end of his name because that is what the book says, but his name for the memorial has no e.
I had that he was Jr. on there because his father is Jeremiah Green as well, him being Jeremiah Green would make him Jr. and his father Sr. But I did take the Jr. off.
Thank you for letting me know those needed to be fixed. Let me know if there is anything else I can help with.

RE: Armstrong Cemetery, Dubius Indiana
Will try. I know there's a reflection in the photo. I'll have to find the original. I cannot find it on the find a grave site, though, can you send me a link to it?

RE: name of cemetery
Hi, The name of the cemetery is something that I can not change. It can probably be changed by sending something to Find A Grave but I am not sure how that is accomplished. I will look through the "frequently asked questions" to see if I can spot something about this.

RE: Solomon Hasting
Your theories align very much with mine.

I've been knee deep in a totally different line today; let me look at the Hasting family again and get back to you on Mary Etta. Your theory on her name is plausible and is not one I had thought of.

Hello; thank you for your suggestion for Solomon Hasting.

The choices on this place do not include ones which do not exist any more.

Salisbury, MD in Wicomico county, is the closest thing today, to where he was born; also, it is on his son's death cert. as his father's (Solomon) birth place.

Borders in MD and DE changed a lot over the years as you know.

He was born in what is NOW Salisbury, Wicomico, MD. Or perhaps you had more information to share.

RE: Hester J. Hudson
And by the way, I just wanted you to know I'm not trying to be rude or unpleasant. I know it's hard to tell my intent or tone just from reading words in a message. I greatly admire your desire for accuracy. I have the same philosophy, as you will see in my bio. So please, I hope you don't take offense. Even if we disagree over whether a death certificate is a reliable source, we both have the same goal, accuracy. And that's what's important. Hester Hudson is not related to me, I just happened to stumble upon the information while researching something else and thought it might be beneficial to someone else. I like to share and help others ( as I'm sure you do as well)and if some information I find can save someone a few minutes researching it themselves, that's a bonus!
