I am also interested in visiting/imaging the graves of famous physicians and surgeons.

"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 for thee."
-John Donne

Edits ?
OK, you gotta tell me what to do. I never saw the "edits" on the top of my page until a few minutes ago. I checked - there was supposed to be 26. I tried to approve the first one since I knew the lady making the edit. Except for a BOWDISH in Minnesota & one other [that showed my corrections in red] I hadn't paid any attention to the list beyond the first one.

I tried to approve but it kept flipping to approve, ignore, etc. Couldn't do anything with that one. Then I saw something on the bottom that looked like it might allow me to approve that one edit. Well, it approved the entire list of 26.

It even erased some changes I made from an edit on the list [those that showed in red]. I had just gotten a request & I not only made the corrections asked, but saw in what the man sent even more inform than his change requested. I changed it & it was erased by my accepting the entire edit list when I only was trying to approve one request.

So I went back in; re-added the info I had added this a.m. What the other 24 were about, I have no idea - but they were all approved.

You ever use that feature ?

Whatever ... I was burned.

Looks like nearly all the Bowdishes have been duplicated as at Old Mount and Mount. Maybe you could contact the lady who posted them & get the duplicates removed ? If you see anymore of mine in the wrong cemetery, let me know.

Mt. Vision / Old Mount Vision
Are there any others you want to be corrected ? When I visited there [only once] back in the 1980s, I was using a list - maybe I mixed up the names. Anyway, let me know.

I live in Greggsville WVa where Gregg Cemetery is located. Unfortunately the cemetery is pretty much non existent. Most of the markers are gone and the few left are unreadable. As a child in the 60's we used to play around the cemetery and I remember it having quite a few markers. If there is any other pictures you require around the Wheeling area please let me know.

RE: Seth Guy Bowdish
You are welcome for the photo of Seth Bowdish's headstone. I don't know if you anything about the history of Coleman, MI, but Seth is mentioned several time in our centennial book. "Seth Bowdish has a splendid line of fancy and staple groceries; in this store is also located the post office which he superintends. In the 1880 census for the City of Coleman he is listed as a druggist and in the 1895 census as retired. His business was located on Fourth Street near the corner of Washington Street. I was born and raised here and love to share what history I know.

RE: Gorman photos
Living in California, I did not think of the possibility of snow on the ground in April!
Appreciate all your efforts.

Gorman photos
Thank you very much for the photos. Gen. Gorman and my father met and served together during World War II.
Their friendship continued until my father's death some 64 years later.

Thank you for transferring Abraham Bradley I, and noting that you don't have his wife Jane Leaming. I will contact the right person for her. Bravo for all you do for genealogy!

RE: Wards
All of the links are set up on the memorials that were created in 2010. Maybe you can work with that volunteer so all that good information is not lost

RE: Salisbury, NY Murray
It is Catholic. Union is probably Methodist, possibly Lutheran, but not likely. It's one of my questions for Doris when we get together. She's webmaster for Salisbury Rural and very knowledgeable local history. Happy to field any inquiries
