|Tony Kaney||Jacob Baumgarter-Buffalo|
Thanks Phyllis; I was hoping you'd say that. I thought it might have said 14 instead. I'm holding out for a Jacob born Dec 22, 1829, a brewer in Buffalo, and am in disagreement with someone who believes it is a Jacob born in 1832. My Jacob disappears from the Buffalo city directory in 1875, so now I'm feeling more confident.
Thank you very much for the photos and memorials for Fred Sauer (#119328644) and Margaret Sauer (# 119328684), my husband's 3x Great Grandparents.
With the date of death from the headstone, I was able to find Margaret's Death Notice on fultonhistory.com.
We live in Texas and truly appreciate this information!

|Marnie Hawks Thompson||Find-A-Grave First Name Policy|
The only rule on f.a.g. that I know of states that, even when a grave shows only a first initial, the "entire first name (IF KNOWN)" should be listed. I KNEW her entire first name and therefore asked you to update the memorial with that name. I believe the edit I requested followed the guidelines.
Here's the f.a.g. rule that I am familiar with ...
What are your memorial naming conventions?
First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.
If there is another rule that states the "first name on the stone should be the first name on the memorial" as you indicated in your message to me, please tell me where I can find that rule.
I'm not sure why I'm even asking, I'm sure you won't help me anyway, you seem to have a real problem with me, and I'm not sure why.

I see that you denied my request to update this memorial. Your reason stated that the name on the memorial matches the name on the stone and therefore no change should be made.
While that is an accurate statement, one could argue that, in many cases, a woman's maiden name often times does not appear on a gravestone, and yet updates to include the maiden name are made on a regular basis.
Please allow me to provide you additional information, my reason for the request, and proof of the information I provided. I hope you will then make the changes I requested, or update the memorial in a way that includes this info.
German names were often altered here in the US with families using several different variations on the original German spelling, making the families very difficult to trace and even more difficult to link to one another. The Germans who settled in Wales & Holland, NY are no exception. The Fischers, Weimers, Raibers, and Leibrings all used various spellings of their German family name.
The name "Raiber" as you can see from the the information I have provided below, is the German spelling of the name. When the family arrived in Holland, NY in July of 1836, the German name was changed to various spellings including; Raiber, Riber, River, and Rivar (these are not names in census records-we all know how innaccurate they are-these are names on tombstones).
Mary's Father, Friederich used the name River, while 2 of his sons (also buried at Hunter Creek) used the name Raiber. Another son, (buried at Holland Cemetery) used the name River. Friederich's 4th son moved to Indiana and used the name Rivar. So in one family, we have 3 different spellings of the original name of Raiber.
Below is a copy of the birth and baptism record for Mary River Fischer (#38427576). You can see the name is Anna Maria Raiber. I have provided the FHL Film number and Reference ID.
Below that is a copy of the Francis Depau Passenger List from 1836 when she arrived with her family from Germany. She is listed on the manifest as Marie Reiber.
Finally, below that is a copy of the 1850 census from Wales, NY where she appears with her family as Mary Rever.

As you can see, she was born Anna Marie Raiber. I was trying to add the maiden name to the memorial as "Raiber/River" to show that she was born as "Raiber", but probably used the name "River" like her Father did. If you think the maiden name should just be listed as "Raiber", so that it is accurate with her birth record, use that name. Maybe a note on the memorial to indicate the change in the name would be helpful?
As to her first name, it was "Anna Maria" which is why I placed the name "Mary" in the nickname section.
I hope the info I provided is sufficient.
