Josephine Winter # 29249802
You state in her bio that she is the mother of Monsignor Joseph B Winter. She was actually his step mother. His mother, Anna (Haunert) died between the 1920 and 1930 US Census. William Joseph Winter married Josephine between the 1930 and 1940 Census.

RE: John B Benham Memorial# 179520729
You are most welcome. I added your content to the memorial.

I know how frustrating it is when a person can't be found.

John B Benham Memorial# 179520729
Please see the Masonic Cemetery of Farmington (South) for John and Julia Benham stone. The memorial for Julia is incorrectly created in the North Masonic cemetery. I have contacted the creator of that memorial for correction.

correcting a memorial
It is not correct to say that you could not use the Edit tab to give information such as the census information. You can't use the first five options, but you write the information under the sixth option - any other information.

I cannot correct a memorial if I don't have the correct information to enter. If you do not know when your relative died, what chance to I have? I am just mowing the rows (taking photos of gravestones).

FindAGrave is set up specifically so that no information can be entered unless it is a known fact. You shouldn't enter anything like -well I know she was alive in 1860 so I'll guess that she died about 1865. Facts must be verified through some primary documentation. I probably allowed someone to persuade me to enter a memorial without any primary documentation.

You MUST send corrections through the Edit tab on the memorial - do NOT send anything related to a memorial as a Public Message on anyone's page.

RE: Ste. Genevieve cemetery
People have been sending me edits on my memorials in Ste. G. - "correcting" the information. The dod on that memorial may have come from one of those people. So I have deleted the memorial since I don't know where the information came from. Most of my memorials are made from photos and I can look at the photo and see what it says.

Henry Odin Adams
Mr. Scott Reed.

Hello I come from Norway, and in connection with the family tree to a friend who I help with genealogy, the name Henry Odin Adams comes up. But I can not see any connection to the Scandinavian families. Apart from Henry's, in-law, Elvira Constance Melquist Adams (1897-1997). Melquist is a swedish family name so possibly it has something to do with her.

Wondered if you know anything more about this family, and their origin?

Thank you very much for your time and attention.

With best regards
R.Flemming Landsjø

Hi Scott - I went through my notes, and I don't see anything more about him. It would seem he would be buried at the Masonic Cemetery - but he should have a headstone. I'm sorry I'm not more help!! Janet

Your "Unknown" Surname Memorials
Hi, Scott,

Sorry about the empty note!

I hope you are doing well.

I noticed that you have several memorials with "Unknown" in the surname field. I was wondering if that was your choice, or if another find-a-grave member sent you edits to change blank surname fields to "Unknown."

Austin Okenfuss
Hi Scott, looks like there is a typo on the Austin Okenfuss findagrave link. His DOD according to the Ste. Gen church records is 1 Feb 1973. So there is either a typo or the stone is wrong.

This is him, my third-great uncle. There is nothing on his grave signifying his service. I don’t know if the SCV does anything for that. The place is quite overgrown in the Summer.

I read on one of your posts that you were looking for St. Gen Co. CSA veterans. I have an ancestor buried there, but he was originally from Virginia. Let me know if you are interested.

RE: Lucinda Phillips Reed #94896588
Thanks for the information. I left the note because I was not sure where the information came from. I have no source for that particular information myself.

I am constantly running across your name on various genealogy sites and have come to consider you a reliable source. Keep up the good work.

Hi Scott,
Just happened to notice the message on your flower, and something stood out--it should read: "we mourn your loss..."

RE: William Nanney #80231308
Hi Scott,
As you well know Missouri had militia units. I found two records for a William Nanny on the Fold3 website. There are no identifying details to be absolutely positive that this is the same William Nanny from Ste. Genevieve. But for arguments sake, let's say it is him.

Missouri Digital Heritage shows 3 men called William Nanny:

1. W. Nanny, Private, Co. D, 78th Enrolled Mo. Militia.

2. William J. Nanny, Co. B, 12th Regt., Mo. State Militia Cavalry.

3. William J. Nanny, Co. L, 3rd Regt., Mo. State Militia Cavalry.

William Nanny was certainly of the right age to have been in the military, but whether these three entries indicate the same man, I cannot be sure. Unfortunately, none of the records I have located show his name as William "J." Nanny.
