Memorial #93346447-David Draper
Your memorial for David Draper #93346447 created 9 Jul 2012 duplicates the existing memorial for David Draper #80822835 created 22 Nov 2011 by Richard Lybrook. You show the same biographical details as did Richard and have more complete birth and death information. However, you lack the family link and gravestone inscription on Richard's memorial as well as the picture of the gravestone shown on Richard's memorial.

I am a Draper descendant and periodically review Draper memorials to see what is new and if I can add any information. I would think the easiest way to eliminate this duplication would be for you to delete your memorial and add the additional birth and death data to #80822835.

Thanks, Bob Weimer

Memorial #70972423
Hello Aileen,
I ran across this record while doing some other research, and your note said you posted it in hopes that someone would know about it. This gravestone, which has been repaired since you posted the pictures, is for Francis Marion Beauchamp (my gr-gr-grandfather). I created another record for him not long ago, with photos thanks to the help of some very generous volunteers. The new memorial number is: 115817293. Thanks so much for posting! (Mary E. Beauchamp was his niece, the daughter of James and Rachel Beauchamp. James was his older brother.)

Thanks for your posting!

Tryphosa Narcissus Draper Gouty Marble
I am a grand-daughter 3x of Tryphosa Narcissus Draper Gouty Marble. Just getting in to this genealogy. Are you related to her?

RE: Rebecca A. Lewis
Thanks, I'll let the other contributor know. It would've been rather difficult for her to be married to that gentleman, considering that he was born many years after she died! LOL!

Please keep my family in your prayers following the loss of my uncle Franklin Rogers, who passed away yesterday from cancer. If you have time I would appreciate virtual flowers for his Find A Grave memorial 128627148. I am very blessed to have my friends on this site. Thank you,

Ella Theresa Murphy Brennan

Linda McGinnis here. I got a call from a cousin of my husband's yesterday and she gave me some family history information and during our talk she mentioned a funeral card for and Ella T Brennan, Sep 4 1886 to June 21 1947. Her mother had saved this card. Her parents before 1949 lived in St Marys, Kansas. So, they may have known Ella from living near her. Her family was Matthew and Marie McCormick Browne. (those were her parents).
We are related to the Brennan's from Broadford and Ashford, County Limerick, Ireland. Those in particular that are children and descendants of Bartholomew and Johanna O'Shea Brennan. Those children would be; John (stayed in Ireland), Matthew, Bartholomew, Margaret (Sr Mary Carmel), Thomas, Patrick, Mary (Jerry McCarthy) and David (martyr in S Finn 1920). We are also related to the Murphy's from Ashford, County Limerick, Ireland, as they relate to the daughter of Margaret O'Shea and Peter Kelly. The daughter was Johanna Kelly who married Jeremiah Murphy. Their children were; Margaret (Sr Rita), Mary (Sr Kevin), James, Ita, Daniel, Jerry, Matthew, Bridget, Nellie, Nora, Sean. The older Murphy's never came to the US, and I am not sure if any of their children did or not.
What I was wondering since you mention County Limerick, Ireland, was do any of the Brennan or Murphy names ring a bell?
Thank you for your time and for your Find A Grave information. I shall pass that along to Kathleen Browne.

RE: Mabel Masterson
Aunt Mabel was a gem for sure. She is my father-in-laws Aunt. In the 1980's I was not working and I would call her out of the blue and ask would she want to come stay for a week and she would say of course. I would drive to Geneseo and get her and we always had a good time. We did this for several years with her. The movie Trip to Bountiful reminds me of her story. We drove her to her farm home once and it was all burned down just a brick fire place standing. She also looks like the actress in the movie. I added a photo to the Find A Grave memorial for her. I have lost contact with her daughter Jerri and I wish I could find her.
