The picture is of me bagpiping in the cemetery with my mother's ancestors and friends, Winfield, IA. I play for funerals and other events, and like to practice in cemeteries. A great place to honor those in the audience. And, they never seem to complain about all the noise.

RE: Duplicate You put Thomas "Rogers" Rodgers Find A Grave#65167873 2/4/2011 in Rocky Spring Cemetery and then established Thomas "Rodgers" Rogers Find A Grave#117764284 in Greenfield Cemetery 9/28/2013. According to McBride Cemetery book Page 335, there is a stone for him at Greenfield Cemetery, but on page 354, I do not see that there was a stone at Rocky Spring for him. I could very well be wrong...and one of these very well could be a cenotaph per the information from Find A Grave below. Thanks! Marianna Morgan Kerns If adding children - which one should be linked to!
Why are there multiple memorials for the same individual? How does Find A Grave handle duplicate memorials? Because so many people add data to Find A Grave, there are often duplicate cemeteries and duplicate memorials added. This is a very common situation and is quite difficult to resolve in a way that keeps everyone happy. Before adding a memorial, search the cemetery to see if a record with that name has already been added. If you are adding a memorial for someone who does not have a physical grave or memorial marker in a cemetery (perhaps their ashes were scattered), please do a general search on Find A Grave (do not enter a location) to see if a memorial has already been created for that person. If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. Never deliberately create a duplicate memorial. In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location. If a case of duplicate memorials falls to the Administration, the Administration will have the final word on which memorial is deleted and which data will be retained in the remaining memorial page. There are some situations where an individual (usually a 'famous' individual) may have more than one memorial page, because their body was buried in one location but a cenotaph or second marker/memorial was also placed in a second location. NOTE Jan 25, 2013: If there are two memorial pages for the same individual, and one has a Lost at Sea designation, and the other gives the location of a cenotaph or memorial marker, the memorial page with the Lost at Sea location may be merged into the memorial page with a physical cenotaph stone or memorial location.

Find A Grave Memorial# 75838170 Mr Rodgers, I a descendant of the McElwains. I have as Robert's (18 Jun 1779 in Ireland = 7 Oct 1824 in Fayette, Ohio) wife, Jane Taylor,(22 May 1782 in Redstone, Fayette, Pennsylvania,= 22 Dec 1876 in Wayne, Fayette, Ohio)Find A Grave Memorial# 112399936. The only Elizabeth I find is a child in either of these cemeteries. I do not know the distance of these 2 cemeteries, and now question this relationship after reading the link added on Robert's memorial. Do you have any other info that his wife was an Elizabeth?
