Bio and Links
I have been doing genealogy for my family for almost 4 years and have acquired quite a collection on my family and the majority of the families that tie into many of the lines. I am a full time college student who enjoys the research and family connections I have done and made on my quest.

RE: Ermie Miller Matson Habegger
FYI Troy:

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?searchArg=naming&page=listFaqs#147

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

======
That is why her last name is listed as Matson on her memorial page.

Those were the dates in the cemetery list, so of course there could have been an error in transcription...if you enter Photo Requests someone will likely get pictures for you so you can determine the correct dates.

Naming Conventions on FindAGrave
Troy,

If you have not already looked at the FindAGrave FAQs they are very helpful.

Here is the one on Naming conventions - it can get confusing when there is more than one marriage so FindAGrave states the surname should be as found on the tombstone with information regarding other surnames through marriage in the bio section. Hope you find this information helpful.

Ermie E. Miller Matson
Also, her birth record lists her father as Joseph Miller and you state her father is Alva Monroe Miller.

Which is correct?

Ermie E. Miller Matson
Find A Grave Memorial# 21286502

You state Alva Monroe Miller is her father, but her name is not listed as a surviving daughter:

....Other survivors include four daughters, Miss Mary Miller, Mrs. Raymond Clark of Waterloo and Mrs. Robert Paton and Mrs. Earl Chapman of Butler...

Ermie Matson
Her nickname is NOT Miller. Her surname is NOT Habegger.

PLEASE examine your edits carefully before you submit them.

Please LOOK at her stone - her surname IS Matson.

RE: Hettingers at Prairie Grove Cemetery Allen County Indiana
I am not a member of the Hettinger family. I will be pleased to transfer them to you, however, please go to the individual memorials to request the transfer. Much easier for me to have the numbers to hand for transfer. Thank you!
