Bio and Links
My name is Melissa and I joined this websight to try to find additional information on my family history and add the information that I have to try to help other people with the information that I have. Also, if you do try to contact me directly through email can you please write "findagrave" in the subject line. Thank you. If not I will most likely think it is spam and delete it.
I also have began to transcribe cemeteries with as much information that I can find on who is buried there.

The Dayde family are my 1st cousins 1x removed.If you could transfer #45622412 and #45622427. After I add their children and parents I can transfer them back to you. Thank you for your consideration in this matter. And as a volunteer myself I would like to thank you for the volume of work you have accomplished. It is impressive.

Regards, Dianne

Frederick Smith #43612592
I am asking for the transfer of Frederick Smith in Birmingham/Zimmerman Cemetery, Allegheny County, PA # 43612592. He is a brother to my Great Grandfather George Schmidt and I can do more family linking than I have already done to his memorial. If you are not related, I would appreciate the transfer. Thanks, Jill MacRae 47010526

Looking for more detail
Hi Melissa,

If I understand right you entered the information about my ancestor, Frederick W. Hagerling. I thank you for that. You noted that he was born in Prussia. I was wondering if you have any more detail on that as I have a nephew who is going to be in Germany soon and wants to see if he can learn more about where Frederick lived. A few years back I thought I had some record of the town that he came from when he immigrated to the US about 1850. But I can't seem to find it anymore. Anything you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Mark H.

I think the above record is actually a duplicate of record #43929746? You might want to check it out.

FindaGrave-Albert D Jones Jr
Please may I have your permission to reproduce your photograph of this headstone on a blog that is dealing with the history of this family? Incidentally, the date you could not decipher - from my records Albert D Jones Jr died as an infant the same year as birth, i.e. 9 April 1883.
If you want to contact me back-channel on this, my email address for this research is:

Brauns @ Birmingham Cemetery

So many thanks for all the work you've done here - unfortunately this begets more requests!

when you get a chance could you correct the surname spelling of Find A Grave#43869334? You can see the image I posted to verify the ts. You might want to link him to his wife #43620330.

I've been trying to sort out all the Brauns in that cemetery.

RE: transfer
Hello Melissa,

I made the change to the Preston Cemetery, in Alger, Ohio.

Have a Great Day!

Emily Clutter vs Emily Nichols
Ohio, Marriages, 1803-1900 about Emily Clutter

Emily Clutter
Gender: Female
Spouse: Thomas A. Scott
Spouse Gender: Male
Marriage Date: 31 Jul 1865
County: Athens
State: Ohio

I believe you may have the incorrect Emily. as this is showing Thomas Axell Scott married Emily Clutter.

Do you have other information that might prove this in error? I'd be glad to find any additional references to Emily Nichols. Thanks so much.
