I am a retired medical clerk and have been interested in genealogy since I was a child. I have lived in Ottawa County, Salina, Chapman and Junction City, Kansas. My FindaGrave memorials are in Ottawa, Dickinson, Clay, Geary, Riley and Wabaunsee Counties.
RE: Gerald Tart Not sure if you have access to Ancestry. It looks like his parents might be Nelson and Nancy Tart. His death certificate lists Aikens as his mother's maiden name. I hope this is helpful to you in your search. Chris
Blanche (Clewell) Geissert Memorial Thank you for the transfer of Blanche's memorial in the Bennington Cemetery into our care. I have already added a short bio and look forward to the links of the children. You are appreciated! Nancy
RE: J B Retter The information that I have is that his middle name was BRAILEY (not Bradley). My source is my mother and sister's Family Sheet for J.B. Retter's parents prepared in 1976; unfortunately, I don't see a source for any of the information on the family sheet. I've been working in Family Search and only find records about him using his middle initial "B" but never a full middle name. I did find a possible John Brailey Retter on a Google search that shows a possible Ancestry.com hit but, since I don't subscribe to that website, I can't confirm it until I next visit my local Family History Center. Your question is certainly valid and, since I have found other names misspelled in my mother's research, let me suggest that we leave his name as "John B. Retter" for now, and I'll keep looking to see if I can find a source to verify his middle name. Better safe than sorry. Thank you for raising this question!
Carl Olson Connie, Can you check on cemetery records? I am wondering if this Carl Olson is my cousin. Do they list the parents on the cemetery records? Find A Grave Memorial# 84338214 You transfered this one to LAOsbourn. Is she taking over some of the memorials you created? Thanks, Marlene
RE: Ingram Hello Connie! I need a reminder of what my message was to you. Usually I save a copy, but in this case I can't find it. In the meantime, my additional notes state that Zarilda Ingram(b1836-) was the sister of my GGgrandmother, Frances Ingram Romick(b1839-). I have Sara E Ingram(1844-1916), a sister of Frances; marrying Thomas Jefferson CASEBEER on 13 NOV 1864. Their offspring (including Ella B Casebeer) are as follows: Ella B. CASEBEER Franz CASEBEER Anna G. CASEBEER Lena F. CASEBEER Lewis CASEBEER Grace M. CASEBEER Charles G. CASEBEER Nellie P. CASEBEER So, this is about all I have. I don't know anything about the existence of a Sophrona (Sophie); or a Sarah that would have been 2 years old in 1860. Anything you can do to clear up the confusion would be much appreciated. Thankyou again.
Postings of Obits "Can I add an obituary to my interment listing? Please do NOT add newspaper article or obituary scans. The photo section is reserved for headstone/grave photos and possibly a portrait photo of the person, if that photo is owned by you. Do not copy and post photographs from obituary or funeral home websites (unless you personally are the photographer), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright. Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed."
It is a slow process, however, I am removing ALL of my obits unless it is one I wrote.
