Hi, I have many old unidentified family photos of my same Burge/Kelley/Harrell line (17303322 m 17303324). I see someone also has photos of the same time period for that line. Would you be able to put me in contact with this individual-the descendant of Nettie? Perhaps we could id some.

I do not wish to post any pictures of Robert but like you I have great memories of him and his family. I was stationed with him two places ~ Charleston AFB,SC and Andrews. Great friend! Best wishes...

RE: Daisy Dell Oxford
Good, I'm glad that cleared that up. And you are very welcome. And Helt's Prairie was known as Salem Cemetery, and another name, but I can't remember that one right off hand. I don't remember how I found that out, but it may have been one of the Vermillion County books in the Vigo County library. I hope all is well!

Anna May Oxford, Hitesville, Butler Co., IA
Hi, saw your message to my friend Howard, who has helped my mother and I with many Hitesville photos. He sent a new photo and an edit. I am still not sure of the transcription of the stone, but we have done more research and added to Anna's biography. I think W.H. (William Harrison) is the son of Elias. Also saw other Oxford memorials you've added, including a Polk! I'm a Polk also. Please let us know if there's anything to add to Anna's memorial.

Hi David,

I received your suggested edits (middle name, dates and places of birth and death, links to parents) for the memorial above. Would you please provide the source(s) of your information?

Thank you for keeping Find A Grave an accurate and valuable genealogical tool!


PS: If you are related to Daniel, please let me know how. I would be happy to transfer his memorial to a family member.

RE: re: Martha Kent
Thanks for the reply. I am not personally related, but my son is married to the daughter of Charles L. Kent, and I am researching the family tree for them. Thank you for the information you have provided and the memorials you have created!

Have a great day!

Madison Kent
David, I assume that you are related to the Kents? My assumption is based on the fact that you have added Madison (50351210) and his wife to the Duncan Cemetery in Brown County Indiana, however, according to their Death Certificates, they are not there. Madison is buried in Deckard Cemtery, and Martha Parsley Kent is buried in Crouch Cemetery, both in Brown County. I have added Martha to Crouch as she was not up (179769341) but, you already have a nice memorial for her with links, so if you would change her burial location to the correct cemetery, I will delete mine.

Rachel Judd
I just hunted up your Rachel Judd on The Iowa death records shows her actual death certificate with names, dates, etc. It has her death as Aug 28, 1927. I'll try to see if I can email it to you from ancestry. Please don't mind that I butted in with this info. I just joined ancestry and am addicted to genealogy now. lol

RE: re: Dittemore
David, I just looked at your profile and you really had a nice looking wife. You also had courage to marry more than once. lol I have been divorced for 37 years and it has been, well trying at times. I too have 2 great kids and I was an Air Force bride. He went but I kept his mother and sisters.

RE: re: Dittemore
I have to say, I do not have you listed and I thought until recently I had done a pretty good job. Can you tell me your line please. I am going to have to really work hard at this for a while. I just found a whole line for John Hartmans daughter, Margaret. She spelled her name funny and I did have he married to a Nehs but did not realize that she was ours. So I am not nearly as smart as I thought I was. Actually I already knew I was not the sharpest pencil in the box. lol

RE: re Edwin Dittemore
David, I have been working on this family for at least 25 or more years so I do have a lot. I have no idea what y0u have but, if you have back to John Hartman Dittemore & Catherine Hertzel, I come from both families. I also come down their daughter Lydia who married John Cotter. And her brother Adam married my g----grandmother, Mary Berger, widow of Samuel Yeakley. All the kid just started out marrying into each of their families and my Yeakley GGrandmother married her first hisbands cousin, a Dittemore too. lol

If you think I have something you want, just speak up. By the first of the year I am going to put up the final tree on rootsweb and put it all away. I think I need a new hobby, lol.

RE: Re:Harte Eloise Winfree Lawson Harrelson Photo
Regarding your message (below):

I am sorry that I misunderstood your permissions statement. The photo has been removed from Richard Harrelson's Memorial.

Previous message from David Oxford:
Hi – In response to your April 24th msg, the Harrelson plaque photo and close-up of Mrs. Harrelson’s inset was taken in 2008 and well before Mr. Harrelson’s death. Because he was alive, his inset was incomplete and no photo was taken. Regarding the free use of my photos, my profile bio clearly states, “Photographs I have taken at burial locations may be used by others for any legitimate purpose (excluding reposting on other Find A Grave memorials).” May I request that my photo on Mr. Harrelson’s memorial be removed. I suggest that you place a request, via his memorial, for a current photo. There are many volunteers in this area. Thank you.

RE: USSAH National Cemetery Photographs
Those were extra photos I took while fulfilling a request at a nearby grave; I added them because the images were roughly 18X higher resolution than the existing photos added ten years ago. I've found that photos on this site degrade over time and thought the backups might be appreciated. I am aware of the photo limit, which didn't seem to be an issue for memorials with one marker image and no flowers. And of course, as in this case, I'm happy to remove any unwanted photos -- they're gone.

RE: re: James A Phillips
You are quite welcome. Fortunately, his wife's side is still pretty legible compared to his side.
that's about the only way I was able to find him. Even then his inscription barely shows in the photograph.
