"No man is an island, entire of itself. Every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were. Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls...it tolls for thee."
-John Donne

Found it
Different spelling. I shall ask Findagrave to merge. Thanks for catching that. When you spot duplicates, it makes it easier if you provide the memorial number of the original. Thanks.

Alexander Munro
You sent an edit just now that my Alexander Munro is a duplicate memorial. Would you please provide me with the memorial number of the original memorial I duplicated? I can't seem to find it. It would have to be in another cemetery?

Chapman's @ Farewell Cemetery (Republic, Ohio)
I was able to locate a headstone for Altheida Chapman. It does show her husband's name and the name of their children, but no dates for them. I will post the photo under her memorial, and you can look and see if you want me to post it to the others, but I honestly think the husband and children are not buried there.

RE: Jeannette Marzke
I'm brand new at FINDAGRAVE (just activated today). I was double-checking some information on my Uncle Art's (Jeannie's oldest brother) obituary in ANCESTRY.com when I saw the typos.
I'm not sure what's involved in sponsoring or transferring a FG memorial, but agree that it would make for sense for a nephew or grandson to manage them. Does it cost anything? How much time will it take? If no minimum time commitments, or cost, go ahead and transfer all three to me and I'll update them whenever I learn new info. I might even have a picture of Aunt Jeannie (she died at 19 when I was only 7). Thanks for creating these entries for me to even find them.

Dr. John Ball
Matthew,
Could you contact me directly (petrsand@dwx.com) regarding Dr. John Ball of CT and OH? For years I have been trying to determine if my Nancy Ball (b. 1792 in CT, m. 1811 in Franklin Co., OH to Andrew Barr, d. 1851 in Franklin Co., OH) was connected to this family.

Risley Memorials
Hello Matt, hope all is well with you and yours! I took a moment to transfere the Risley memorials over to you just a few minutes ago. They are your ancestors and the memorials should rightfully be yours.

Take care my friend, and I wish you the best of luck in your family history research!

Memorial 32684309
In your memorial 32684309 for Evalena M Norton, you show a date of death as 1945...the correct date of death is 1915. If you look at the headstone carefully...and compare the 4 in the date for Lewis above her name...you will see that the 4 takes up much more space than the 1...please refer to the Connecticut Deaths and Burials Index 1650-1934 as well as the Connecticut, Hale Cemetery Inscriptions 1675-1934 for Evalena shows DOD 1915. Thank you for all of you hard work and generosity...
