Bio and Links
I am interested in preserving information and in providing stone photos where possible. I am flexible and like it when others are the same, particularly in adding requested information and also in linking to family members.
My transfer rules are generous if the memorials are outside my family members.

I added Robert as the first husband but think you have to unlink yours in order for him not to appear twice on Agnes's memorial.

Do you happen to know where the "Crager" husband is buried?

RE: Emma Canaday
Yes I requested deletion of E J a couple of days ago. Since I was not the originator FindAGrave requires that I contact originator which I did for his permission to delete after he transferred memorial to me because it duplicated mine.

RE: Meredith
Hello, George. I am not just a Meredith "connection", but a direct descendant of Sir William Collis Meredith. He was my 2nd Great Grandfather. If you refer to his F/G memorial, you can click through the Quebec line to my Father, William Ross Mills, whose memorial is linked on my Profile page (or perhaps it would be best if you were to just work back from my Dad). If you are related to the London Merediths, there is a strong likelihood that we are distant cousins. :D

RE: Elizan 'Izza' Reeves Housman
In support of my 2xGGGM's date of birth:
London, England, Births and Baptisms, 1813-1906 (viewed & saved original image)
Name: Elizan Izza Maria Reeves
Record Type: Baptism
Baptism Date: 14 Feb 1824
[Birth date: 06 Nov 1823]
Father's name: Charles Reeves
Mother's name: Elizabeth Reeves
Parish or Poor Law Union: St Andrew Holborn
Borough: City of London
Register Type: Parish Registers
[retrieved via, April 06, 2015]

And my photo of her gravestone has March 7th, 1865 [although the image is dark and the lichen makes it difficult to read], as opposed to your Edit suggestion of March 4, 1868. Thanks for catching the 20-year typo though. :)

Izza died at the age of 41 years, of a hernia

Bowen memorials, Mount Hermon
Working again today on the Bowen family group and trying to capture all the updates you and Philip have sent me as SAC edits.

Thanks in particular for pointing out the typo in Izza's Memorial - she was my 2x Great-Grandmother, and I _should not_ have gotten that one wrong. LOL
All the best, :D / Beth

I Thank You for pointing out again & this time you will be happy that I fixed it.

RE: John Archer Powell memorial
Thanks for your follow-up. Just knowing you pulled it from there is all I needed to hear. I agree that's a great source. I will go ahead and put your edits through.

RE: JOhn Archer Powell
Hi George:

I assume you are speaking to the edits sent yesterday? I currently have 253 edits I need to review so I had to scroll through pages until I could find some for John. I see one for birth and death info, and one for parents.

I do see that Manitoba Vital stats gives his DOD as March 15, 1936. However, I would appreciate your letting me know the source of his date of birth. Unfortunately I have received too many based on calculated dates or Ancestry trees.

Thanks much!

RE: Bowen
Transferred some, held on to others. Let me know if there are any I'm still custodian of, that you'd like to add bio details too. It's too hot here today to make major decisions. ;) :D

RE: Edward and Eliza BOWEN memorial, Quebec City
Hello, George. I am _so_ delighted to hear from you!! I apologize for the delay in responding -- I've been away from F/G for a few weeks due to assisting with the census follow-up.

Thank you for all your added work on the Bowen family. I'm looking forward to seeing what you've entered for the other six children. And I'll be more than happy to adjust the photos and bios.

If you use the Edit function on either Edward's or Eliza's memorials, and choose "Suggestion a Correction", it will initiate a private email in which you can detail what you would like added to the other memorials.

OR, if you prefer, I could simply transfer those to your F/G account. My primary interest in the Bowen family is their youngest daughter, Louisa Aylmer Bowen, who was my 2xGreat-Grandfather's second wife. I'd prefer to retain her memorial (and perhaps the Judge's and his wife's), but given you are working on behalf of a direct family member, you ought to have stewardship of the other children's pages.

Looking forward to hearing from you further. :D
/ Beth
