Requests to other editors:

Please use the EDIT function on a specific memorial for ALL messages, requests, TRANSFERS, DUPLICATES, etc. concerning that memorial. For a transfer request please use the Edit button on the memorial, then Suggest and state your relationship, etc; this is the only way I'll handle it; otherwise your requests will go unanswered. Don't use the message board below for such things pertaining to a specific memorial.

All Messages and requests to me should be civil and polite. No sarcasm please!

Before starting a new cemetery: be sure to check to make sure the cemetery does not already exist.

Biographical information and obituaries should not be included in a virtual flower.

Think outside the box.

Please do not ask me to add unsubstantiated / unsourced claims that the person is related in some way to a famous person.

If you ask me to add info from the photo of a grave marker, especially an old one, please give me the exact dates, etc., that you want added, so that I am spared having to try to decipher the marker.

Transfer requests should be individual and specific and must be made by using the EDIT function on the memorial in question. If you are requesting a transfer based on relationship, please state that relationship and your full name. I am flexible on your connection to the person and will make transfers outside the guidelines at my discretion. I have been disappointed when I did make a transfer and the transferee did nothing to improve the memorial or even worse deletes what I have added.

No triangulated transfers. A triangulated transfer is when A asks for B to be transferred to C.

Historian and genealogist.

I have been doing genealogy on both sides of the Atlantic for over 27 years. My work on Find A Grave is NOT a hobby, but a service to others.

I majored in history at Duke, did graduate work in history at the Univ. of South Carolina, graduated from the Univ. of Florida Law School and practiced law for 30 years, much of it in the land title industry. I have an EFM certificate from the School of Theology, University of the South.

Through my mother, I am a ninth generation member of the Weybright (sometimes spelled Waybright) Family in America, a member of the First Families of Ohio and a direct descendant of Capt. Martin Weybright III, of the Lancaster County (PA.) Militia. who is on the DAR patriots list and paradoxically was a member of the pacifist German Baptist Brethren (Church of the Brethren). His father, Martin II and grandparents, Martin I and Margaretha, had arrived in Philadelphia in 1730 from Germany aboard the ship Loyal Judith and settled in Lancaster.

My grandfather, W E Durr, M.D. practiced in Glencoe, Ohio, from after World War I until his death in 1947. In the course of his practice, he delivered many babies, including my mother and one of my brothers. I have over 1,300 of his Physician's Birth Records, but these are probably many more records that I do not have. I put these birth records into 4 spiral bound books and gave the original books to the Ohio Genealogical Society's Library in Mansfield, Ohio, gave one copy to the Genealogical Section of the Hutton Library in Barnesville, Ohio, and kept one copy for myself.

Through my great grandfather, Cornelius "Neal" Rice (1844-1933), I am a member of Civil War Families of Ohio. During Sherman's March to the Sea, he was captured at Irwin's Crossroads, Georgia, taken to the county jail in Sandersville and then to the county jail in Milledgeville, then the state capital of Georgia. He escaped from the jail and walked home to Greenville, Ohio.

Through my father, I am a first generation American and a dual citizen of the USA and the Republic of Ireland.

Names in my family tree are: Calvert, Varty, Moore, Durr. Rice, Burgan, Weybright or Waybright, Koontz, Fetter, Mehring and lots more.

Places in my tree are Stuart and Bradenton, Florida; Belmont, Darke, Miami, Montgomery, Holmes & Wayne counties, Ohio; Carroll County, Maryland; Lancaster, Somerset & Adams counties, Pennsylvania; Eastern Massachusetts; Counties Armagh, Antrim, Down, Dublin & Monaghan, Ireland; the West Riding of Yorkshire, England; Southern Germany, and more.

Denominations in my tree include Episcopal, Christian Science, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, Moravian, German Baptist Brethren (Church of the Brethren}, Roman Catholic, etc.

Places I've lived, worked or spent time in are Manatee, Alachua, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie & Indian River counties, Florida; Suffolk, Norfolk, Middlesex, Worcester & Plymouth counties, Massachusetts; Belmont, Darke, Montgomery & Erie counties, Ohio; Rutland County, Vermont; Chautauqua County, New York; Durham County, North Carolina; Richland & Sumter counties, South Carolina; Counties Armagh, Antrim, Down, Dublin & Monaghan, Ireland; London, England; etc.

Thank-you for adding the information for my husband's cousin. I have requested that his mother, June Smith Baldwin be added, since she passed away in 1999. (June and Bonnie Smith were sisters.) I have also added a few pics of Marty. Sorry, I don't have any military service history on Marty to share. Hopefully, someone will some day. Warmest regards, Jim & Mari Mills

UpStairs Lounge Memorial
Hello Mr. Weybright, I'm doing the non-profit documentary film, Tracking Fire, on the tragedy of the UpStairs Lounge fire. I see that you have created an memorial for all 32 victims. Thank you for acknowledging the tragedy, remembering the people who lost their lives.
May I speak with you about your memorial and of details regarding the unclaimed victims? I thank you kindly for your time. You can reach me at

Margo Weiser
RE: Annie Krueger Miller
Thanks for the info Martin. My cousin from this family believes that this John Miller is actually John Weiser who was born in Germany. Her great grandmother was Maude Miller, one of his daughters. His parents were Barbara Bongard and Johannes Weiser and his mother married Nicholaus Mueller after her husband died in 1860. I don't know what happened to Nicholaus after Barbara died in 1868 and I don't know anything about an Antony and Elizabeth Miller. The kids were listed with Barbara's brother Peter, as Bongards, in the 1870 federal census. Another mystery with the Weisers. Still trying to get more info on the birth of my great grandfather Henry Wiser who is John's brother, and their other brothers. The majority of information is on the Weiser Family Tree and owned by Darla. I would really appreciate your passing on any info you might come across. Thanks again so much.

Annie Krueger Miller
Martin - What an impressive history! I am trying to find out who added Krueger on Annie Miller's Find A Grave Memorial# 28791892. I am trying to find out if her husband, Capt John, was actually my great-great uncle, John Weiser who took his step father's name, Miller. Records from an cousin show her maiden name as Kincaid. I was in touch with Ken & Nancy because they have the memorial, and they thought that the information had come from you. When you have time, could you e-mail me at with any information you have? Thanks so much for all you do.

Ferris LeBlanc
You apparently created a grave entry for Ferris LeBlanc who died in the Up Stairs Lounge fire in 1973. I recently published a book titled The Up Stairs Lounge Arson, which tells the story of that fire. I was recently contacted by the family of Ferris Leblanc. They were living in California at the time of the fire and were temporarily out of touch with Ferris. For years they wondered why he dropped out of their lives and only recently, through internet research, discovered that he died in that fire. They would like to visit his grave. I have information indicating a burial in Holt Cemetery, but the staff there says they have no records of his burial. Do you have records or documentation? Do you have a plot number or any other means of locating the site? The relatives I've been in touch with would like to visit his burial place, but have been unable to locate it. Any documentation you can provide would be helpful. Please email me at
