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.

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

Charles Persons
Charles is listed as being buried in the Clovesville Cemetery, both by the obit you posted and the burial list of the Clovesville cemetery. You have listed him in the Irish Catholic cemetery which is not the same, that is another cemetery across the road.

I will try to find the grave and get the photo for you, but you may want to put him in the correct cemetery.

Hi Mark,

How are you related to Wilbur and Mary Persons? They are my 3rd great grandparents. Their son Milo is my great great grandfather.

I notice you have put in several Babcocks in the Whitefish Montana cemetery. These are all duplicates of much earlier memorials, just that the name was misspelled in the originals. You might want to share your information and get the originals fixed rather than duplicate. Thanks Penny

As the author of the biography you sent is Maud Ellen Foster did you obtain permission from her to post the biography? She owns the copyright to the article and it cannot be posted without her permission.

Please see the FAQs.

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
You should not copy obituary notices from newspapers (or from funeral home notices or web sites) to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary

Phineas Persons

I could not find Phineas at East Village Cemetery in East Montpelier, VT. His bio says he was buried on a farm at Horn Of The Moon. There is a Horn of the Moon road north of the center of Montpelier off Route 12 near Wrightsville Reservoir.

Thank you for the BIO information about Duane E. McCommon. It has been posted on his Memorial. If you are a relative, and wish to have his Memorial transferred to your care please ask. Thank you again. LeRoy.

Persons/Pearsons in Plainfield

In case you didn't see, when photographing Amos Persons I added memorials for Mary E. Pearsons, John L. Pearsons and Abigail Persons at Plainfield Village Cemetery. Let me know if you want any transferred to you.

Amos Persons

I just fulfilled your request for a photo for A. Persons in Plainfield VT. I noticed that the stone says Pearsons not Persons. I submitted an edit to change first name to Amos, but wasn't sure about the last name. Maybe the stone is correct and maybe it isn't.
