RE: Thank you for the Everett Wren edits
Ah! I am morally certain she was buried there. She may have had a wooden cross or something that didn't last. Or the stone may have sunk, but if their cemetery records were done by human beings, it could have been lost. At our cemetery in Blair, since I have transcribed old obits, often I will find the plot because it is one of the Unknowns--right beside a husband or wife who seemed to like each other a lot. Or--again in eastern Nebraska/western Iowa, the ground under a stone that doesn't have a foundation can sink, with grasses growing over it like over an old sidewalk that nobody really cares for. We have a probe, and go down the line: Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, CLINK! and there, about 4" down, is a polished marble slab, with names and dates and all. Then, of course, we get hold of city hall and the cemetery sexton, to make sure that the 2018 edition of the cemetery records includes this old one. Thank you ever so much! I truly appreciate your advice. Back the lady's memorial goes, to be beside her husband.

I appreciate your note, and the flowers left. I switched the cemetery for Leita to burial unknown. I hope this is the correct way to do it.

RE: Thank you for the Everett Wren edits
Hi, Judy,

You are surely welcome.

The reason her name wouldn't be in the Rose Hill cemetery book is that she died in 1986, and the Harrison County Genealogical Society walk-through was in about 1985, even though the cemetery book was published in 1987. I think City Hall has the actual grave records on cards, but I don't get over there. I think her name might be on the other side of her husband's stone, if I remember correctly from another communication.

I was able to find a bit more about his life as I was verifying. Please take a look

Thank you for the transfers. I've never included my number before. Now that you bring that up I can see how that would be a good thing. Thanks again.

Harry H Akridge
Hello Judy,
Are you an Akridge? I am since Harry adopted me when I was about a year old. Unfortunately, I was left off of his memorial by his brother and sister-in-law who hated my mom. I am glad to know he hasn't been forgotten. I loved him very much and he is still in my heart as well as my daughters. She remembers her grandpa very well.

RE: Re: Harold Akridge #63956066
Thanks for your help, Judy!
I did the edit button for a couple of edits on my grandparent's memorials - but when it came to Harold's, I was just stumped.

I'm not sure what all the symbols on his headstone are, but that one diamond-shaped one with the green, on the upper right of his side of the headstone, is the patch for the 4th Infantry Division (I know this because it was also my unit when I was in the Army). You can see an oval-shaped heart in the middle of the symbols used to have his photo in it, but it was vandalized about a decade ago. The symbol on the bottom left is the Army's Combat Infantryman Badge. The one over that looks like a plow handle?? But he grew up in town, so I can't imagine that it's a farm thing. The one I really cannot identify is the bottom right - it looks to me like someone wearing a tank top, eating movie theater candy - and I know it's not!

Thanks again!

RE: Rose Family
Hi Judy,

I can't edit John's listing to remove his wife. The originator has to click on the relationships page for him and delete the spouse entry.

I think everything else looks good.

Judy, sorry it has take me so long in getting back to you. I have been under the weather just now getting back into things. I wanted to link Helen to her son Thomas W. Day 86810484 which you declined. I was wondering why. Since I have done research and talked with Thomas son and he has confirmed that helen is Thomas dad.

Amen Sister! This is my Mantra, too! :)

I'm always happy to transfer to any family member. I'll never understand the reluctance of some contributors to let go of the memorials of strangers simply because they've created them. That's why we do it isn't it? For their family to find them. That's why I do it.

It's funny, recently I requested a transfer and on the manager's profile bio it simply said, "PAY IT FORWARD".

Then, she proceeded to NOT transfer to me, never replied to my request, deleted my message on her board (so she obviously read it), and then transferred it to some stranger with no ties to the person, and that new manager refuses to relinquish the memorial.

Unfortunately, my relationship is not by blood, so I cannot appeal to Find A Grave administrators.

So sad that people deny transfers when the person asking is able to adequately explain/define the relationship and upload photos that only someone close would have, and add family links and personal bios.

So sad. So much for "Pay it forward". Ha.

RE: JoAnna Bond # 154153359
They certainly are greener than my dead yard. I don't know what they are doing, but at another nearby cemetery, the flat marker was obscured by a thick layer of packed dirt. I had to stand on the marker and grind my heel into the dirt for some time to get it so I could brush it away. (I don't like to be disrespectful in this way but it seemed impossible to brush or wash the dirt away so the stone could be read.) I would not have said that marker had been moistened in quite some time to have the dirt so completely dry -- like cement -- all the way through, but the grass around it was green...
