RE: Bob Watson #170808227
Thanks Michael, didn't mean any hard feelings, just that I have all the information, photos, etc., I try to concentrate on my family, most of whom I knew, back to my great grandfather, in the case of Bob I am in touch with his sister, his mother Reba is still living, age 93, the story is still unraveling, thanks again.

RE: Bob Watson #170808227
Don't know how you do your math but most of the ones I manage are either my family or my wife's, unfortunately both of our families are either deceased or nobody has an interest or the information we have to memorialize them, in the case of Bob Watson, he was actually an Eads and it is too bad that the proper information can't be liked to him and his father, siblings and other family members.

Thanks, Michael!

I've spent a little time clicking around on here today. I think many of my family's grave sites are on here already. I have a wonderful second cousin who is way ahead of me.

Hey, Michael!

Thank you for your offer to transfer my Mom's memorial. I will take you up on it eventually, I'm so new to Find A Grave, that I think I should get more familiar, lest I mess it up!

Hahaha, I couldn't figure out how to respond to you other than the public message. Haven't had much time to get familiar with it all, but hope to soon!

Thank you again and always!

RE: Willis Ray Hornbostel
Hi. He was my step dad and is buried in St Paul's. It is ironicand disrespectful to my mom, his wife over 30 years. His kids probably meant well by inscribing the tombstone with death date...BUT...

Happy holidays to you and thank you for your support and assistance!

Oak Grove Cemetery
Since Oak Grove has worked so hard to clean up the cemetery and trimming around all stones and flats. This is a perfect time to snap photos before the leaves go crazy. Next Saturday the 22nd is good to try and snap as much as possible. Around 10 am. Not much is photographed there.

RE: Patricia A Davanzo updates
I have seen that also. If you submit a change, I assume that you have already done the research and all I have to do is make the change. If I think something is wrong, I do the easy think and transfer the management to the person requesting the change, then they can answer the questions. The vast majority of ones that I have entered are not my family, so I would rather transfer them to the actual family. I was going to send you an email today since I noticed that you took a lot of pictures of headstones at Jefferson Barracks. I started a personal project a year ago where I photographed the entire cemetery and now I am uploading them to Find a Grave. I use the Transcription program to upload these photos and the only problem is that it does not tell you if a headstone photo already exists, it just adds it. So you may see on some of your photos there is a duplicate of mine. If you want me to delete mine, just let me know which one

Transfer Memorial
I was wondering if you could transfer my grandma's memorial to me. Her name is Glenda Evelyn Pretto. Also, you could transfer all the Prettos in Immaculate Conception cemetery to me if you'd like. I am related to them all on my grandfather's side. Thanks!

RE: Sr Emerita Mary McManus
Thank you for your kind words! I taught at St. Mary's for one year before the school closed, so the Sisters have a special place in my heart. I add memorials for them whenever I can. Anytime you have information to add, please forward it. And of course, the offer stands. Anytime you see a memorial you'd like transferred, just let me know. I always transfer to friends and family unless the memorial is part of my tree!

Duncan Stewart Fults Correction
Thank you Michael for all the work you have done. Like you, I have got the genealogy bug...bad lately. I wanted to point out an error on the entry for my great grandfather, Duncan Stewart Fults. His father's information is correct, but the mother you have listed is actually his grandmother. It can be confusing with the Fults name because there were so many Jacob Fults. Duncan's mother was actually Caroline Kline-Fults. She lived from 1840-1929, but I cannot find anything on her on

RE: Pat Whalen
Hello Michael, Its great to hear from you. Hope you and your family had a good Christmas and New Year.

I'm hoping to find some photos of the Whalen Family and the pool hall-saloon that was in Hoxie. I have an old postcard of the Hoxie Business that were on Texas Street ( main street in Hoxie ) from the early 1900's, but the quality of the photo is not good. I have seen Pat Whalen Bottles, but I don't have one. They are very rare and expense to buy.

Email me and I will send some scans of bottle and the old postcard.

Pat Whalen
Hello Michael, I notice that Pat Whalen was your GGF. I'm in the process of doing a history of Hoxie, Arkansas and trying to find some information on him. He had a pool hall-saloon and a bottling company in Hoxie.
