Changing names to Unknown does nothing to identify the grave. This is "findagrave" after all.

chris WEST, you have been reported again. They are very familiar with complaints about you and assured me they would put a stop to your harrassment. Are you that desperate for attention. I suggest you have your medication modified.
I feel my posting is compliant. I could not read all of the last name so I posted what I could read in hopes that it would help someone recognize this person and give me the full last name.
Chris, thank you for alerting me to multiple duplicates that the Find A Grave system itself created due to its burping while I was in the process of completing a memorial. Most I eliminated last night or transferring missing links to a surviving memorial.
However, I deleted your emails as I went and several of the first duplicates you referenced need to be reviewed. Can you please forward to me your copy of the earliest emails of last night?

I guess they need to change the rules, because they say to right down what's on the headstone. It's only for names that are missing letters. If it's only at that cemetery. It's what the National Park Service done for hundred years for missing letters and it's on the headstone. I guess you have to do what you got to do. Good luck.

Thank you for your input on the headstones. The dashes you see stands for unreadable letters on a wooden headboard used during the war. The ones you do see on the headstone are the ones they could read. 73792931 They are not considered unknown soldiers. William - means they could not read his last name but the letters were there unreadable. The ones I have in my memorials will stand as they are. There names only known to God. If you have information about any soldiers buried there I'll be glad to add it to there memorials. Thank you for your time and being thoughtful.

I think it is more useful to have a partial name on Findagrave than no name at all. Sorry.

Find A Grave memorial for Eliza -----fellow.

I entered dashes for the first letters of this individual's last name because the tombstone is damaged and illegible. I feel it is helpful to give researchers the part of the name that is legible.

Most Welcome. I gotta ask!! Your icon pic, Irish Setter?? we have some too!!
|Toni Baity Mayo||RE: Martha Shigley memorial|
Chris I was reading some old paper work I have on the Shigley family which had that Martha was buried in the old Phillips Cemetery. What I am trying to do is at least put all of Geo. & Sarah Shigley's children to rest and contacted to them. I can change the location and you are probably right because there was no reference to the other cemetery on Find A Grave. Thank you for the correction.
