Charles Nelson Grainger memorial #52822449
Hello! Charles Nelson Grainger is my Great-Great-Granduncle. His first name is spelled incorrectly on his monument as Carlos. Would you be willing to transfer his memorial to me? Thank you very much! Sincerely, Patrick Flahive

Lizzie & William had 5 children in all:
Elsie Emme (oldest and listed)
Alma & Erma Emme (twins born in 1920)
Willard Emme(listed) & Wilma Emme (twins born in 1923)
I haven't been able to find the rest of the children on findagrave, but this is the information passed down from Caroline Shoemaker (deceased) who did much of the family ancestry in the 1970's.
(2nd message, thanks in advance)

Bessie Erickson-Wenz
Thank you for posting information on my grandmother's sister, Bessie Erickson, that later married Gus Wenz. I see you have provided info. at her find a grave site which is wonderful. I would like to say she was not born in Wisconsin. Bessie was born in Dakota Territory in 1883 before it became South Dakota in 1889. This was called Meade County, South Dakota.

Her father, John Erickson, had come to Dakota Territory and was on the 1880 census there. The census enumerator had him listed as single but he was not. He was a Swed from Sweden and figure he spoke very little English and so census taker more than likely had a hard time understanding him. Anyways, John Erickson had left his family in Wisconsin and came to Dakota Territory and made a Homestead claim and brought his wife and two oldest children to DT in Spring 1882. Soon, he and and his wife, Julia Thompson-Erickson, had a new baby girl named Bessie Erickson.

Hope this helps you. Thank you again, Ruthi Barth

Gilbert LeeRoy Oliver
Monkey Cat,
Your information on Gilbert Lee Oliver of Stapleton Nebraska is wrong. When he died, the rumor was he was killed by a couple of MP's for smuggling pearls. That rumor and your story of him being killed by winning in a poker game are both wrong. My father, Gilbert's brother, had my Uncle's death investigated by the Navy. My father kept the report, and I now have it as my father, Vernard Jack Oliver, has passed away. The real cause of my Uncle's death was a ruptured congenital aneurysm on his brain. I can provide the documentation for the report. I would like this corrected.

I was taking photos at the Loup Valley cemetery in Stapleton,NE and noticed quite a few duplicates. Just thought I bring it to your attention if you'd like to clean up the inventory on this cemetery. Thanks!

RE: Monkey Cat
Wow-I'd love to be invited. That is a ton of research! Amazing!
I'm not very technical--and I'm done, for the most part, with those memorials--forget about removing anything.I just get caught up in placing something of some value on memorials so they don't look so... cemetery.
Do you need a password for or something?

RE: I'd be happy to remove it
I really like Monkey Cat--at least you have a sense of humor-- unlike most of the crypt-keepers on this site! Such grave hoarders!
Go read about our ancestor Robert--11266046. It's not my memorial but I like to add stuff so people know something about who they are related to. Also Phoebe- 34167232.
I know it's tough--but try to get serious every now and then--haaaaaaaaa (but then again--maybe you shouldn't)

Thanks for returning my message.

I think your Monkey Cat is hilarious! But, do you think you could take it off of my 10th ggrandmother's memorial? I was going to add some genealogical info but I can't get past your animation.

RE: 53697037
I am glad you found my email. As you can see I waited for quite awhile for an update. I will delete mine. Please transfer the memorial to me and I will make corrections.

RE: 53697037
Sorry, but I sent you a message a couple of years ago giving you the correct information for this memorial and it was never updated. I created the a new memorial, so that people searching for Helge would find his memorial.

Helge is my Great Great Grandfather. If you would instead of transferring the memorial to me could you remove your's that does not have the correct information.

Thank you very much in advance.

RE: Corrections continued
Hello - I DID send the requests using the EDIT button, so I'm confused?? Did they not go thru "Cyber space" properly?? I didn't know I could request transfers other than by sending a message via this method. Sorry, but I'm new at this and I just want to get my deceased families linked together, so it's easier for other family members to trace their ancestors. Sorry if I upset you.
