Joseph Mauk's memorial I noticed that in Joseph Mauk (b.1815)and his wife Sarah Holbrook's memorial that you list Joseph's parents as Peter Mauk (1781-1859) and Eleanor Sparks (1791-1858). Unfortunately, this is a error. Joseph actually was the son of Samuel Mauk (1785-1819)and Katherine Hoppis (1786). Samuel and Peter were brothers. Joseph's children as listed are correct. You will notice his first son was named Samuel after his father. Hope this helps. If you need more info, please let me know. The Mauks and all their children are confusing!
RE: Sarah Ethel Roe Stone I've been a member since 2013. I had not signed in for a while and was surprised to see the photo of my grandmother as a child. There used to be a photo of her headstone. I remember going to her funeral. It had been a rainy, cloudy day. As we bowed our heads in prayer the sun came out. That gave me some peace.I was a young girl and it was the first funeral I had ever attended.We all have fond memories of our grandmother. I always thought it was sweet that my grown father always called her "Mommy". Do you know who manages her memorial? I have some info I could offer.
Thank You! Thank you for your suggestions, Judy. I appreciate your assistance. I've not been able to regularly check my inbox and respond back to everyone as I would like, so I'm playing catch up today. I apologize if my adding memorials in Carter County has in any way offended you. It was just my hope to make memorials for those who have passed so that they won't be forgotten. I have been a member on this site for some time now, but didn't really get to contribute very often until the last year or so. You could say I'm still fairly "green" when it comes to all the workings of the site, especially the preferred methods for entering burial information. Other contributors led me to believe that using the "Recent death, Burial unknown" option was how one entered in recent memorial information. Many of those contributors will add a note saying "Arrangements Pending/Incomplete" after using the recent death option, so I thought that was the norm for contributions. If I'd known that using said option was for special occasions, I definitely would have refrained from using it. It seems I found out about that little rule a tad too late, as this morning the administrators have disabled that option entirely for me. Not too certain what I can do about that now, but if they believe I was maliciously abusing that option, they're mistaken. I remember you asking about obituaries and other biographical info on the memorials I created. Several months ago, I was instructed by one of the administrators to not add obituaries to memorials, due to living family mentioned within them. I inquired if it would be safe to remove the names of the living, to make it safe to post, but was told the rule is to not put up any obituary and to not put up any photo that I don't have the copyright for (I'd sometimes upload the funeral home photo for the individual). So I removed all of that off of the memorials, so as to not violate the rule. So I'm still not certain what to do about this. I'd like to add the information to the memorials, but wouldn't want to be breaking any rule. Again thank you for all of your suggestions and for letting me know about another site rule. You mentioned that all of your ancestors came from the Lewis/Carter Counties area? A good portion of mine came from Carter County as well. Perhaps we're related down the way. You never know! You take care and God bless!
