Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired and loving it. Now I finally have the time for history and research. Enjoy old cemeteries and photographing the markers.

PLEASE DO NOT use the automatic edit tabs for changes to memorial pages managed by me.

Instead: select the 'other' option and include what change and include a PRIMARY source of information and verification of that information. Birth, marriage, death records, or an obit are very helpful.

Census records are not a Primary source. Anything found via the internet needs verification. I do not use Ancestry. website.

If you are a family member and asking for a transfer, please state and explain your relationship.

LINK family requests-it is particularly important to have the correct people in the proper relationships. They are more likely to be declined if no additional information is provided and not easily found by me. Too many incorrect links are ending up needing to be removed at a later date.

If you have disabled your messages and email ability for contact, it limits ability for communication regarding requests for changes. They may be politely declined.

Rude replies will not accomplish receiving edit or transfer requests. They may be forwarded to Find a Grave administration for 'processing.'

Thank you to all the volunteers who donate their hours, photos, research and help to others seeking their missing family and friends.

RE: Adrian Smith
Anything's possible. I know it says daughter, but in your first msg, you said there was a sister, brother, and nephew.
I may do some more checking; probably you will, too. Keep in touch if you find something, OK?

RE: Adrian Smith
Hi again: Ellen Smith (# 30522772) was born 1855 and died 1895, and I have not been able to find her on census with Adrian Smith (# 105029188). 1880 shows him as single; by 1900 Ellen has died. I did not find a marriage record for them, either. That is why I was frustrated and gave up.
His info you added said he was survived by a daughter (not sister?) but so far I have not found her, either; she would be key to link the parents. Thanks, Clc

RE: Adrian Smith
Thank you very much. I am not related to either Adrian Smith or to Ellen Smith # 30522772 -- and since I was frustrated searching and trying to prove the relationship, I sent Ellen's memorial back to findagrave to manage. She had recently been transferred unbeknownst to me, and I had no other memorials in the Rock Falls cemetery - so I sent her to findagrave administrators. I really do think Ellen Smith of this memorial was the wife of your Adrian Smith memorial - but it's out of my hands now. I am happy that you found information for Adrian Smith; I believe everyone should be identified and remembered with dignity and respect. If you would be so kind as to see to the application for the stone for Adrian Smith, I would be grateful. Perhaps the local genealogical society would cover the cost of setting the stone? Also if you would link his memorial with Ellen's - I see nothing wrong with that. Her stone says she was wife of Adrian Smith, and someone else left a flower message there indicating the relationship was likely, which is why I began researching.
THANK YOU so very much for your interest and your help. I think Adrian and Ellen Smith must be smiling. -- Clc

RE: Adrian Smith 1931
Hello - Sorry but I need a memorial number or something to remind me who this Adrian Smith is... I cannot remember at the moment if this is one from one of my family trees or from a memorial on findagrave -? I've been out of the loop for the past week - see my profile for explanation.

Many thanks! Also, I enjoyed seeing your quips to C. about the rules to transfer! She became a member one day and day two....."I!!!"

Thank you for the edit suggestion. I have included that in his bio. I also have a newspaper clipping about him that I plan to add (when I get a few minutes to find it).

Merry Christmas!

Thank you very much for trying to find a stone for Shumway. I forwarded your comments to the memorial manager. I sure didn't think this request would be completed until spring so I was very surprised!! You are dedicated. Appreciate your contributions :)
