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!

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.

Dollie & Oram Souders @ Stras. Menn.
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,

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?

Henry Aument (1841-1909)
I believe that Henry Aument is the son of George Aument (1809-1900) and Sarah Holtzhouse Aument (1815-1875). All three are buried in the Quarryville Cemetery. George's memorial includes an obituary stating that he had six children and his memorial only links five. I believe Henry is the sixth. Could we list Henry as a child?

Thank you...
for letting me know about the duplication of my memorial for Rev Henry Andrew. Harry is the name in the stone, but church records (he was in seminary at death ) say Henry, and he was probably named for his father's father Henry. Anyway, even though mine was there first, the other contributor has his memorial linked to family and has a picture so to make it easier, I suggested he take my bio info, add it to his, and then I'll delete mine. Thanks once more for letting me know so we could clean this up.
