Hi, in 2008 I joined the Findagrave family. Am new at this but am learning quickly. Have contributed family gravesite pictures and information, please feel free to take a look. Almost all are located in the Rutland, IL Cemetery and most are in reference to my father's maternal side of Proctor. Am always wanting new instruction and guidance. Please teach me! Family history is to me documentation, documentation, documentation along with source, source, source. If our information intersects PLEASE contact me, I love new facts and details!
RE: Your Wonderful Attempt You're welcome! I just wish I could have found a stone for her. I would leave the request up just in case someone does find it and I somehow missed it. There weren't a whole lot of stones there. Homer is an excellent historian and I do believe what he says. :-)
Thank you for taking a photo of the marker for my 5th great grandparents. I especially appreciate your taking a closeup and recapping the inscription.
I will have information about them that I will send to you under separate cover. I am writing at this time to ask for your permission to use a copy of your photo in my ancestry.com family tree. I will give you proper credit for taking the photo in the caption underneath.
Franklin Dimmick Headstone Suzanne, Thank you for the picture of my greatx4 grandfather Franklin Dimmick in Vermilionville Cemetary in LaSalle county, Illinois. I had just been handed down his daily journal by my father and it was nice to see a headstone associated with the hand written pages of his journal.
Your Doyle Request :) Hi Suzanne, I saw your request and the wording in the info bubble next to the name. Very considerate of you. Doyle is very easy to navigate. They have books with all the names as well as an outside electronic database. Your request will be easy to find for the volunteer who claims it. I would normally be one of them to scoop it up and fulfill but I got hit head on in the cemetery last week and being down to 1 car I can only go there on weekends. If your request is still not claimed by next weekend I will claim and fulfill for you. Any questions please feel free to write. Have a great day..
I transferred to you all 5 of the Marcus-Amherst Cemetery Ames family memorials I created because they weren't on FindAGrave (Find A Grave) yet, along with my photographs of their grave markers: Ellen, George, Levi, Nellie, and Grace.
Since my Ellen Ames memorial (#113584896) was already on Find A Grave before yours (#113585603) was created, I left mine with the grave marker photos, and I transferred mine to you. Your Ellen memorial is a duplicate and should be deleted; you can make any additions you want to the original one I transferred to you.
You asked me why you weren't notified by Find A Grave when that woman posted photos of the grave markers of Moses and Ellen. It's because she posted photos for your request although I had already claimed your request. Therefore, Find A Grave did not recognize her unauthorized photos, only mine.
Thanks for your good Find A Grave work and friendship, Bill
