Let me start by saying that I do VERY MUCH appreciate anyone who has taken their time to enter memorials in this wonderful system. Without your contribution this system would not be as wonderful as it is today. If you are one of the great photographers that waits for the perfect light and gets down on their knees to take that close up shot I applaud you and than you for your hard work!

Something I have learned poking around here for a while now. It is pointless to enter thousands and thousands of memorials if you are not going to respond to update requests so the data you have entered is accurate. There is no badge of honor for keying in pages of cemetery books only to ignore correction and linkage requests for the individuals you have entered. If you are going to support this project please respond to the update requests quickly or transfer the memorial to the requestor so that they can make the updates. They obviously have been doing some research for a reason. Please don't be a roadblock here.

I normally post SAC update requests sent to me in 2 weeks. If the memorial has not been updated in that time send me another SAC request please because it is a good indication I probably missed or did not get your first request.

Another thing I have learned is it helps to park your emotions and hot buttons at the door. We are all here to support this project and help it grow and develop. Sometimes it is easy to loose sight of that common goal. If you are easily offended by a simple request or find that you begin to take feedback too personally try to remember this is a community and not just your own playground. For this place to work we all have to work together and that requires some tolerance from everyone involved.

I have been working my family tree for more than 30 years. Lost all my computer data and working to rebuild my files. Family names of PERSONS, BADER, COX, NEIMAN, SUTTON, EMERY, AUMBERIC, GUTTING, RAU, VanWORMER, and others.
Son of the American Revolution.
Photographer, Geocacher, and Waymarker.

Photographers: If you can, take a photo of the grave to the left and the grave to the right of your targeted grave and create a memorial for each if they do not already exist. Your photos are critical for this projects success.

Remember to back up your data! and ALWAYS have FUN!

DALRYMPLE
Hello
Could not find headstone. Instead I posted pictures of the old Dalrymple family plot, directly to the right of the church. If you want them removed contact me.

Major Cramer Blamchard Potter
Just read you Find a Grave entry on Cramer Potter. I have a document he appears to have written and signed on "The History of the American Flag'. I have not found any information about living descendants. Wondering if you knew of anyone who might be interested in my document.

Emma Crawford Hotaling - 96476378
Hi Mark,

I just suggested parent links for Emma via the edit tab and want to suggest a reason for her mother's name not being 'Emma' but 'Mary Ann' instead.

I've found all but one of the federal and state census sheets for James and Mary Ann Persons Crawford, and on every one she is listed as 'Mary' or 'Mary A'.

Only thought I had was the initials 'M A' for 'Mary Ann' caused her to be called 'Emma'. Weak at best, I know.

Do you have any more info / help for me? I would be profoundly grateful! Thank you, Elisha's ggggrandaughter.

Charlotte Potter Bump
Charlotte Potter Bump is my 6th great grandmother.
I am researching to find support documentation on
her marriage to William Bump. I found the Potter
Family genealogy. But I would like to find church
records. I would also like to prove her death date.
Do you know of any family bibles??
I found articles in the probate of her father Benjamin
Potter in Daily Albany Argus issue Sept 30, 1852.
The name is listed as next of kin of Anna J Coburn
Hayden, daughter of Julia Ann Potter and Loren Coburn
granddaughter of Benjamin Potter.

Persons Family
Hi Mark, I too have been working on my Persons Family line. As I go back to Harrsion G. Persons and his father Elias Persons, I know there must bea a connection to Uriah Persons. I just can find it. The all lived in the same towns in Chautuaga County New York. Do you know if they are connected? Also Alonzo Persons, son of Uriah. He was Appointed Postmater by President Grant. Do you have a picture of him? If not I have one I am going to post.

Thanks

Red Hill Cemetery, Rockcastle, KY
Can you give me an address of the church or highway that it is located on. We will be visiting this cemetery in a few months to locate Robertsons buried there.

Charlotte Wilcox
Hi Mark,
Do you have a source for date of birth for Charlotte? I calculate that she was born about 1784 if she was 81 years at her death.
I am trying to find and source her parents in my family tree, but am hitting a dead end.
Thanks for your help.
The memorial is:
