Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB OF A PERSON'S MEMORIAL TO SEND ME ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS. That way an e-mail comes to me with links to the person's memorial; if requesting links, please provide numbers of the memorials you wish to have linked. I try to check the memorials that I enter so that I do not duplicate any earlier memorials, but sometimes this happens.

I try to follow the Find A Grave rules regarding transfers unless the person is my relation. However, other transfers will be considered.

PLEASE DO NOT ADD BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION OR OBITUARIES IN A VIRTUAL FLOWER per Find A Grave Guidelines. If I find any in this area, I'll notify the administrators and ask that they be removed.

Find a Grave Guidelines can be found on the left side of this page by "clicking" on "Help with Find A Grave".

Memorial 74578418 James Benjamin Whalen

I put in a request to link James Benjamin Whalen to his parents. You can see I have included part of a manuscript that proves his parents are Edward and Charlotte (Thomas) Whalen (posted on Edward Whalen Memorial #171705446). His gg granddaughter and I have been comparing what we know about our Whalen family and are trying to connect the family members so others searching Find A Grave will understand the relationships. We know 3 children survived their mother Charlotte (Thomas) Whalen when she died 8 Jan 1909 in New Albany, Floyd Co, IN at age 95 from her obits.

New Albany Tribune
Published Weekly
Friday, January 15, 1909

Mrs. Charlotte Whalen, widow of Edward Whalen, died last Friday afternoon as the home of her daughter, Mrs. William Greenaway, 1118 Shelby street, of the infirmities of old age. She was ninety-five years old and was a native of South Carolina. She leaves three children, Mrs. Greenaway, James Whalen, of Monroe City, Ind., and John Whalen, who lives in the west. She was a member of the Christian church. The funeral services were held Sunday afternoon from the residence and the body was taken to Sellersburg for burial.

Thanks for your help in connecting James Benjamin Whalen to his parents Edward Whalen Memorial #171705446 and Charlotte (Thomas) Whalen Memorial #63281316.

John Whalen "in the west" is my great grandfather and he is buried in IL next to his wife. He lived in Missouri at the time of his mother's death but was returned to Jefferson County, IL after his death near Sikeston, MO for burial. I have his death certificate and obit and photo of taken earlier. I have also photographed his gravestone and his wife's gravestone.

Iby May (Jones) Robinson
Dear Rita, I have sent several edits to amend the memorial for Iby May Robinson memorial#92526362
I have done a lot of research on her; census records, marriage records, death records etc. She is in the April 28,1910 Census-Harrison township, Daviess Co., Ind. Father-Milton C. Jones, Mother-Harriet J. Jones. She is listed as Ibbie M. Jones. There are marriage records: Dec.21,1913 Daviess Co., to Hamlet F. Robinson. Death Records
May 16,1916. And, Hamlet lists her death on his next marriage record. All this to amend a note you have for her that states incorrectly that she is the d/o James B. and Mary (Plummer) Robinson.
James and Mary didn't even get married until Dec.22,1893 and there is no record of her anywhere connected to them.
As always, thanks so much for your attention to the edits and for all you do. I just very much want you to know, that when I send edits, they are very well researched. Thanks again, Lily

Rita you are confusing as per your requests. One is remove the photo. Next on another one you are saying several
Are alive. Processing my photos. Many death dates are not on stones. I have sent many for edits. People add photos all the time.

Saint Vincent DePaul "Highland" Cemetery

There are two memorials that need to be move to a different cemetery. They are:

Find A Grave Memorial# 107677637
Find A Grave Memorial# 111301462

Over time people have confuse the Saint Vincent DePaul "Church" Cemetery with the Saint Vincent DePaul "Highland" Cemetery.

Additionally, the Highland Cemetery was only listed on FiindAGrave as the Highland Cemetery. So when individuals would read obituaries, death certificates, ... , and then would look for a Saint Vincent Cemetery to create memorials, they incorrectly assumed it was the Church Cemetery.

To make things worse, the Saint Vincent DePaul "Church" Cemetery was incorrectly listed as the Saint Vincent DePaul Community Cemetery (now corrected). I had the FindaGrave Administrators update/correct the "also known as names" of the Highland Cemetery in Vincennes. The Highland Cemetery is now also listed as the Saint Vincent DePaul Highland Cemetery and Saint Vincent Community Cemetery.

The Saint Vincent DePaul "Church" Cemetery, were you have your memorials listed, is very small and has very few graves(mostly priest and nuns).

I was in both cemeteries this past weekend, and I can guarantee you that your memorials should be the St Vincent DePaul "Highland" Cemetery.

I hopes that helps.

You were right about Maria Gluck. I found here death in St. John's records with maiden name and found Peter B.Gluck in birth records. Updated hers and made a memorial for him. Thanks!
