Rebecca Weaver Neeld
While accepting a suggested correction for her daughter's memorial page (to link the daughter to the mother), I noticed the DOB you have on Rebecca Weaver Neeld's memorial page is Jan. 5, 1803. (Her husband wasn't born until 1812). I think Rebecca's DOB may be a "typo" (and should have said "1813") because her 1850 census says she was 34 years old at that time. Her 1880 census says she was 66. Those census ages would indicate she would have been born either "About 1816" or "About 1814" -- and not as early as "1803". I have no other "proof" for Rebecca's actual DOB except those census records. You might want to consider checking on her year of birth again -- if you have that information in your files. Thanxxx.

Thank you Tom for noticing the duplicate of this Memorial. I ALWAYS take a photo of the Military Marker (if available) along with the regular headstone.

Correction
You have Mary Ruth Mowery #113917014 listed as a child of Abraham Groff Fritz and Elizabeth Keath Stauffer. She is not their child but the wife of their son, Roy Stauffer Fritz. I sent a correction to Find-A-Grave but thought you should know as well. Perhaps it would be easier for you to correct.
Thank you.
Jim Fritz (Roy is a cousin of mine)

RE: John Albert Constien
Hi,
My connection to John Albert Constien - he is my 2nd cousin - 2 times removed.

Don't believe it meets Find A Grave trf policy.

Forget my trf request and I'll send changes to you to me included in his memorial page.

Thanks,

Bill Long

Brooks, Robert W. memorial
Tom, I have added these memorials according to a book of burials at the Bristol Cemetery. After adding the memorial, I intend to photograph the graves. I have assumed that one of these Roberts is a Junior. If I find out different, when I get to the stone, I will delete one of the memorial pages.

RE: Mary Brackbill Eshleman, # 143139379
Thanks for the sources. I will do more searching but information for her is scarce. In the meantime, I will use the information from
Theodore Herr's book for my tree. She was married on Mar 15, 1791 and it is doubtful that she was married at 14. I have now researched about 7000 of the descendants from his book. Theodore Herr has many names wrong because he used family bibles and interviews so many names are phonetic or nicknames. I have found very few firm dates (those that contain more than the year) that are wrong so far that are not corrected in the addenda.
Thanks so much for your work and maintaining memorials for our ancestors!
Jim

Conrad Yenner Find A Grave Memorial# 93817198
I am trying to piece together the family of my great grandmother Katharine Yenner. Her family was seperated prior to 1900's, I think due to the death of her father. Conrad would appear to be her brother. I would appreciate any info you may have on the family. Thanks! Ginger (aka Virginia Katherine, named after Katharine Yenner)

Dear Tom,
Thank you so very much for your BEAUTIFUL photo of the gravestone of Martin Metzler. You went to so much trouble to provide a lasting tribute to my niece's ancestor. I want you to know how much your skills and time are appreciated.

Sincerely,
Jan

Hi Tom,
Thank you for all your work on find-a-grave. Noticed that you have sent a few edits to the Dollie Souders memorial page. The extra info is much appreciated. If these folks are a part of your family, I am willing to transfer. I know you would take good care of their memorial pages.
Best Wishes,
Glenn

John T Aument (1850-1918)
I believe that the memorial listed on Findagrave shows a birthyear of 1856. However, the picture of the headstone shows 1850. In checking the 1850 and 1870 census records, they agree with a birthyear of 1850. Can we change the listing to reflect this?

Thanks.
