I also go by Sgt G. I leave flowers and tokens under that name to honor those who have served our country, their community, or both. I was an MP with the US Army. My last duty station was at Fort Stewart, Georgia with the 24th ID (Desert Shield/Storm era) - Rock of the Marne!
I welcome and appreciate corrections/updates/bio info for all the memorials I manage. I may or may not make any changes to the family memorials I manage but will consider everything you send me. I initially got involved in this website to correct mass uploaded inaccurate memorials for immediate and direct family members and it has taken me years to sort all of that mess out.
I take contributors at their word that what they submit is factual/true/correct with some evidence to back it up so please bear with me if there are some discrepancies in the information that is posted. Updates and corrections are never ending.
Please also be aware that any online newspaper obit you ask me to copy and paste to the bio section may be edited for privacy - I will however give you credit for submitting it.
The 'edit' option on the memorials is an awesome and handy tool in making updates, links, and corrections, but I draw the line at adding titles and the like. Not all are listed in the drop-down and more often than not, are not correct anyway (military rank specifically). If I didn't already upload that information, then I left it off for whatever reason and probably added it to the bio. In most cases, it can be clearly seen on the marker.
Having served on active duty myself, the omission of rank or title (E/O grade) is not a sign of disrespect, rather one of respect for recording the correct and proper rank and/or title..... but there are some who will insist that it be added to the memorial.... I will take those edits under advisement as I get them.
Direct family lines I am always working on: Andrews and Mashburn (Sevier County/Tennessee), Gobleman (Germany and Ohio - all spelling variations), and Corley and Langley (Tennessee).
I am making some progress on the James, Mosgrove, and Dimm lines and am uploading family photos where possible.
Christian D Wolff Hi! I am married to the great great grandson of Christian D Wolff buried in Saint Lucas Cemetery in Sappington Mo. Some corrections: His name is Christian Doerner Wolff, not Christian Dietrich Wolff. Several of the obituaries of the day mention that he was a brigadier general (note the single star at the base of his monument), not a lieutenant colonel. His farm adjoined the Grant farm. Family lore is that he and Ulysses S Grant hauled wood into town together.
Digital gremlins or poor ui? try this hidden feature to find Roibeards profile pic. That number works but not as a memorial search. Find A Grave faqs: is there a way to search for a member's profile page? Yes, but you will need to know their public name used on the main site. Go to 'Contributor Tools'. From the Customize box, click the 'edit' button next to 'My Find A Grave Friends', then select the 'Find Members' link. Don't feel bad I had to look it up too.
Your Stagg... Had to point out this other one to you. I guess it isn't that unusual really that the cemeteries are also a resting place of peace for our four legged friends. Check out Roibeard (#47503199) Your image is wonderful!
You are very welcome! I was wondering if you were the same "Jami" that I used to correspond with from time to time and it sounds like you are. :)
I've just been going through and trying to make connections on some of the local cemeteries around me with obituaries and Ancestry. Trying to get my money's worth out of that Ancestry subscription! haha
I'm glad what I've been doing has been able to help you. If you need anything specific, I'd be happy to see what I can do now that the weather's finally warming up a bit!
I was wondering if you consider transferring Edwin Marvin Harford (# 28037791), Agnes Gayler Harford (# 28048853), and Mary Harford Sawyer Smith (# 28032127). Edwin and Agnes are my great grandparents and Mary is my grandmother. I would like to add more information and take responsibility for their memorials.
They are in Oak Hill Cemetery in Kirkwood, Missouri.
My ID is #48385050. Your cooperation would be very much appreciated.
