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

RE: Pamelia Phillips Banks Warriner
You are welcome. I'm always glad to correct mistakes. With the inaccuracies in the records, it's so easy to make them. :^)

Find A Grave Memorial# 17880641

You fulfilled a photo request for Mary Hoadley Barrett, probably for her granddaughters. Her grave is unmarked. I thank you, also, for your act of kindness, as Mary was a very dear cousin to me.

My Mom, who's interred in Alderbrook told me her grandmother, Sarah Debroah (Page) Spencer is in unmarked grave there and how that always saddened her. I'm going to be making a research trip to Guilford in and the not to distant future and am hoping you're able to direct me as to who I may contact to verify this information and obtain plot location. I hoping to find my great grandfather, Oscar, as well.

I'm grateful for any assistance you're able to provide

Thank you
Sometimes the dates are off my really strange amounts of time, so I just wanted to make sure that wasn't the case this time. I'll correct it in my records then also.

I have a question, I know you didn't originate his memorial, but the date of birth listed is 31 Apr 1830. Since there are only 30 days in April, what is the correct date? Could you message me and let me know, if you have it? Thank you so much!

RE: Joshua Adams
It was a pleasure! Actually, his relative, Ernie Adams and his wife Etta, lived in the apartment upstairs in our big old house in Sarnia! I loved visiting them and they taught me to play cribbage when I was 12!

I love doing this!! :-)

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.
