Bio and Links
Just a lady who has always, for some strange reason, enjoyed the stories and the serenity of cemeteries--which in the long run will prove to be a good thing. ;-)

I am happy to transfer memorials to family members or friends of the desceased.

Samuel Wilson Gammon and I are 1st cousins 4 times removed. My direct line is his uncle Joshua Smith Gammon who is buried in the Gammon Cemetery, Greenup Co, KY. I am trying to get all the information on the Gammons to connect them on findagrave.
You may have to remove a spouse if I added her for the second time.

RE: Yardleys in Lee's Summit, MO
HiKendall,
I am distantly related--Mildred Yardley's grandmother Ernestina Wilhelmina Wege Kolterman was my grgrandfathers sister. I don't need the Yardley's transferred to me. My interest is to have the family relationships documented to help others find their history. If I can be of help to you let me know.

Nobility Names
FYI - I have a few ladies with both names (which makes the name line very long), because during their live time they were known by both names.

RE: Basilica of Saint John the Apostle, Wrocłow
You are right that this church is not actually in Wrocław, but in fact in Oleśnica (Oels), which unfortunately is not currently an option in the location menu. It is the former ducal church in the town. Is this the same church you were thinking of?

RE: Another protocol question
Hi, a noble woman marrying another noble of higher ranking would take the TITLE, not the name:
Sofia, the former Queen (consort) of Spain:
Queen Sofia of Spain is the title, not the name. Her name would be Sophia Margarita Victoria Frederika of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg. (She is a German descendant). If she had taken her husband Carlos' name, she would have been Sofia de Borbón y Borbón-Dos Sicilias. (of Bourbon and Bourbon-Two Sicilies). Noble women retain their maiden name, but take their "higher" noble husband's title. Is that streamlined on Findagrave? - NOPE. So, you will find both versions.

RE: Another protocol question
Actually noble women kept their maiden names. So in your question about Anna, she remained as Anna Sophie von Sachsen-Gotha-Altenburg (1670-1728). When she married Ludwig Friedrich I. von Schwarzburg-Rudolstadt in 1691 he was "only" a duke. It wasn't until 1710 that Friedrich was elevated to prince. in any case, here it goes:
First name: ANNA
Middle name: SOPHIE
Last Name: VON SACHSEN-GOTHA-ALTENBURG
"VON" is part of the last name and not only a title.
And you probably known that she is a direct ancestor of Queen Victoria and of the current Queen of England.
