Bio and Links
Bio Photo One of the best features of Find A Grave is that it provides a forum where years of genealogical research can be shared with others. Please let me know if you have additional biographical or statistical information for any of my memorials, as it is always welcome. The wealth of knowledge that others have sent to me through Find A Grave is astounding.

If you are aware of links for parents and/or spouses that I have not yet added, I would appreciate it if you would use the edit tab to leave the name and memorial number of the person or people who should be linked.

Thanks to all those who have generously shared your family stories and beautiful photos with me. I sincerely appreciate being allowed to add them to the memorials for your loved ones. The pictures and studio portraits that for years have been carefully preserved in family photo albums, add such a wonderful dimension to Find A Grave. They help create a memorial tribute that is all the more special and meaningful.

Before asking for a memorial transfer, please determine whether or not this is really necessary. Transfers of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections even if you are not the memorial manager. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a transfer request. It would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire family trees.

Transfers will only be considered if they comply strictly with Find A Grave guidelines. You must state your exact relationship to the deceased. People who request transfers and then fail to improve and maintain the memorial are certainly not honoring the memory of their family member.

Bulk surname transfers will not be considered under any circumstances.

Unless otherwise noted, all bios on my memorials were researched and written by me. Post-1922 verbatim obituaries have not been included in order to avoid copyright violations.

I have put a lot of time and effort into my memorials on Find A Grave. I strive to make sure that the information on them is as accurate as possible, but I am realistic and know that mistakes do happen. Please use the edit tab to leave a message regarding any errors or omissions that need to be corrected.

By working together, we can continue to build Find A Grave into a better and better site!

Note: 30 Sep 2013 marked a very sad day for all Find A Grave contributors when the founder of this website sold us out to ancestry.com.

I will continue to add to and maintain my memorials as long as Find A Grave remains a completely free website, open to all without charge.

I am crying with the memories. Thank you for incorporating into the memorial page. They were indeed wonderful people. Millie started off there as a bookkeeper and Willie started as a delivery man. For a short time, they even employed my father as a delivery boy. My father was 9 years younger than Willie. Thanks for the tears-they are good.

George T. Scott Find A Grave Memorial# 134952207
Hi Lynn, I just sent an edit to you regarding the birth date of George T. Scott. The date is from his father, James Scott's pension record.

Helene Elisabthe Bremer * 1874
According to the church records of Edewecht (near Westerstede in Oldenburg) she was born in Jeddeloh and baptized in Edewecht on 6 Sep 1874.

I have entered records for her whole Family in the Oldenburg Auswanderer database.

http://www.auswanderer-oldenburg.de/getperson.php?personID=I85453&tree=Auswanderer

They lived at various places in Ammerland (WST in the abbreviated place-name) and I have tried to pull together whatever I could from the various church books of Westerstede, Wiefelstede, and Edewecht. Your generous notes on findagrave helped me to identify the right family. Thank you.

RE: Brackenridge markers, dates
Thanks, Lynn. I should have guessed that was the case (for James B.) born 1774 and not 1744. In 1789 he was petitioning the court in Huntingdon County, Penna. for the appointment of a guardian. So far we cannot trace his mother past that year, and nothing about her exists on Find-A-Grave. His father (Robert) is presumably buried on the farm in Woodcock Valley, then Bedford County, where he (and James' oldest sister) were scalped and killed by Indians in 1779. That seems to have been among the last raids into that part of the state by western or "Ohio Valley" tribesmen.

Brackenridge markers, dates
I'm passing on to you the information given to me by a friend who is a descendant of James Brackenridge. She is from Missouri and has looked at the inscriptions closely and though noting they are hard to read, she has done her best to make corrections. There is only one James, apparently, and the persons reading the transcriptions at the time the books were published simply could not make them out. I know how often that happened... here is her message to me, following...

As for the graves, the reading of the stones is inaccurate - Eve/Eva's stone says relict of Jas - an abbreviation of the time of course of James - my James Brackenridge (her probate confirms date she is James wife as she has the same children as heirs) there is no Jasper. James' stone read b. Pa 1774 d 6/23/1853 Not 1823, and 1853 matches the probate file. His stone is currently very hard to read. Since those were so badly misread I question all the dates in the stones from this reading. Issac is his son. I wonder if the Thomas E was actually born in 1825 (misread of stone) and is the son whose handwritten memoir I have a copy of and who says he was born in 1825 and I know he was still alive in the 1890s. I thought he probably died in Colorado since he was living there in the late 1800s, but perhaps he was buried with the family. The current database of the St. Louis genealogical society has Eva listed correctly as the wife of James and does not contain the errant James.

Bernard & Mary Droege
Hello there:

You entered the memorials for the two above (59139452 & 59139468). They had a daughter Elisabeth that died in infancy (1902-1902 #59139455). Three years after this Elisabeth died, they had another child that they named Elizabeth (Elizabeth M. Droege Imming 1905-1980 #26924687). It seems that they wanted a child by that name that lived until adulthood. I have contacted the person who set up the memorial for this other Elizabeth to establish the link to her parents and 12 siblings. I am contacting you because you indicated in your memorial that Bernard and Mary had 12 children, when they actually had 13.

I know the above from studying the family tree for the Droeges. If you need to contact me I can be reached at mdroege@sbcglobal.net

RE: Lichtenberg
You had done such extensive work on the family that I thought you might be "kin" to them. I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate your through research, and being able to know that if you say it, it must be right!

The pictures I have come from a photo album belonging a grand daughter of William Lichtenberg. It is her grandmother's album. She knows nothing about the family, and there are no names on any of the photos. I've scanned them into my computer, but am at a loss as to what to do with them now. Perhaps I'll find a Lichtenberg "blog" where I can post them.

Again, thank you for accurate and productive work for all Find a Grave members.
