Her middle name is Sue and the year of her birth is 1943 not 1913. I know this because she is my sister. Thank you from Elizabeth

Linda Johnson
Mary Susan Bond Mote FindAGrave Date
Mary Susan Bond Mote is listed in Find A Grave as 1882-1975; however, her tombstone says 1882-1973. She is listed incorrectly on several siblings, etc.

Robert Johnston
Hey Richard!

First of all, I salute you for all of the work you have done. It's a blessing to so many. And I appreciate it.

I'm writing to suggest that the information for Robert Johnston, in the Johnston Cemetery, might need to be altered. In my family records he is the first born son of Joseph Johnston (who is also in that cemetery). Joseph is my 3x great-grandfather.

Robert's death was on 27 Feb, 1849, and he was born 19 Sep 1807.

BTW, I have added photos of the headstones to the Johnston Cemetery. A distant family member took them and gave them to my elderly mother some years ago. I don't know if the headstones are even still there now. I would love to visit it sometime though, but now as Mom's caregiver (and I live in Dallas, TX) a trip like that might not be possible for some time.

Thank you again, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to touch base with me on them!

Ken Johnston

Lesli Anglin Lewis
Christopher Collier Brown
Hello, I have a question requesting Christopher Collier Brown # 30604789. I see he married two Anglin sisters, Eliza b.1831 and Serena b.1854 , is this correct? The sisters' father Jonathan Monroe Anglin is my ancestor. My 5th great grandfather John Anglin is Jonathan's grandfather. The two sisters had a brother named William Cornelius who died in the battle of Shiloh in the Civil War. Tracing the name Cornelius back to John's brother who was killed in the Revolutionary War, son of William and Ann Caswell County North Carolina. I was curious as to the connection between the Brown and Anglin family. Do you know if they moved around together? Did they live close to one another? I am particularly interested in any Texas connections. Thank you for any information you can provide and I hope that I gave you something interesting as well!

George and Maria
Do you find a linbk between George Hinkel (1755-1816) and son Jacob who was married to Elizabeth Schaeffer. I also cannot find any info on his marriage to Maria Margaret Kershner or any other info on her. Do have any such information.

RE: Jesse Hill Cemetery
Thank you for the response. Where did the information for Jesse Hill that you added July 29, 2011 come from?

and his wife Mary "Polly" Bray Hill:

Jesse Hill Cemetery

Have no knowledge of a Jesse Hill Cemetery.

I think there is a Jesse Hill buried in the Sappington Community Chapel Cemetery south of California, Missouri.

I do know where Sandy Hill Cemetery is.

Thank you,

RE: Maria Ison
Hello again,When you click on the edit tab you use the other suggestion option I think it is the 6th or toward the bottom,click on that and it will send what ever message you type in to the contributor with a link to the memorial. This keeps every thing private. Thanks Jarrott

RE: Maria Isom
I am now finding out that this duplicate was created only yesterday by Mr. Herrell sending me a name change for this memorial and in one day it seems to have created havoc.

Please send a edit threw the memorial and note the other memorial number and we will take care of it. Thanks Jarrott

RE: oak hill marker
Well, I appreciate your getting back to me. Some people list them and others don't. I have listed mine from the beginning before adding to Find A Grave, so that's why I enquired.
I've heard 2 different stories on those flat cement stones - one that the sextons placed them in the 1920s & 1930s on graves where people couldn't afford stones, the second story that they weren't placed until 1940s and 1950s. There are a lot of them in the Original Cemetery, and then quite a few in Section 14, just a few in Sections 12, 13, & 8.
I dug up 3 more in Section 14 this week - Dora Kessler and 2 Unknowns. I've gotten the cemetery caretakers to spray weed/grass killer around those flat stones every year so that they don't get re-buried.
I'll probably wait until the growing season is over and re-probe the cemetery. I understand the age problem!
Thanks for all you do for Find A Grave and for those Vets.

Memorial 31541346, Catharine Muthart Hoch
In reference to memorial 31541346, Catharine Muthart Hoch. You mention specific things about the headstone, etc. However, when I requested a photo recently and the volunteer went to the office, they were told that the cemetery had no record of this person! Also, I'm curious as to where her husband is buried and/or if he has a recorded death on Find A Grave. There are no details on his dates of death, for example. Any additional info you might have would be appreciated! I can find not much information about him at all, and I believe while she is a direct ancestor he may be as well as I have many in the Hoch line in my tree.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Homer M. Austin
Memorial# 49848361
You have his parents as Clarence Earl Austin and Lillie M McFarland Beck. Clarence is my great uncle and I have the Austin/Breshears family bible. Homer is not listed. However, US Fed Census 1920 and 1930 has Homer M Austin with parents Herbert C Austin and Adda Austin. What are your sources for his parents?

Thanks so much for transferring Mary to my care!
I really appreciate people like yourself who devote so much time and attention to creating memorials for strangers! It is a true gift to families, especially those who have moved to other states and don't have easy physical access to their relatives grave sites.

May I please ask why she is listed with Catherine as a middle name but her stone reads

If you or anyone has found a document showing Catherine, please share.

Thanks for your hard work, and helping others find info they need to fill in gaps.

Good morning Richard,

Thank you SO very much for taking the time to research George and Mary A Moore Kelly and entering the info! And thank you for reconsidering transferring management to me. I agree, the photo of the headstone should remain as it is probably his. Would love to know how the inscription is so "off" but it does happen as I have found major errors on death certs.

I would love to manage the family if you don’t mind transferring them to me:
Mary Ann Moore Kelly Find A Grave Memorial# 69225493
Strauther S Kelly Find A Grave Memorial# 69225632 If you prefer to not transfer, would you mind adding Strauther's birthdate – 1858, source: 1860 Salem, NE census.

I would like to add that George, Mary, and Strauther passed away within 11 months of each other and the remaining children went to live with Mary’s parents. There’s another daughter (Annette) but I haven’t found where she’s buried.

Thanks again for your time, effort, and the consideration you have given to me with this and your invaluable work over the years!

Richard ~ thanks so much for your prompt reply to my message yesterday! Sorry to belabor the point and take up more of your time; however, according to old family records and the 1860 Salem, NE census, my husband’s great grandfather (George Kelly), wife Mary A Moore, children Orpheus, Strauther, Emma Amanda (Walter) was born about 1827, not 1840 as indicated on tombstone. I guess it will remain a mystery concerning our George and the tombstone you so diligently transcribed and entered. I certainly understand your unwillingness to delete the tombstone photo and transfer management as I requested. Thank you for doing the Baldwin Cemetery – I so appreciate knowing where they are buried and having photos of headstones. You are a blessing to all researching their roots!

Hi Richard,
First of all, thanks so much for all of your transcription work! What an invaluable service! You transcribed the headstone for George Kelly correctly; however,the George Kelly that is my husband's great grandfather and connected to the family listed with this entry doesn't match. Our George was born in 1827 not 1840 and died Dec 14, 1865 not Dec 24, 1861 as on headstone. The headstone for this George Kelly must belong to a different family.
I'd like to correct the dates and delete the headstone photo to remove confusion. Would you mind transferring management to me?
Thanks so very much, Maxine Kelly
