I use to have a preamble in front of my bio but findagrave kept taking it off:

"Don't cha hate it when a graver stands on the rules for a transfer? Not Me! I don't care how, or if, you are related as long as you take care of it."

They frowned upon that paragraph.

RE: Joseph Swift Gill

It was my pleasure to post the photograph of Joseph Gill's marker. It's a beautifully-crafted piece of marble with gold-embossed engraving ---- much higher quality than many current-day crypt markers.

If you have additional bio material for Joseph that you'd care to share, please let me know. These memorials are at their best when they're "fleshed out" with personal details that provide a human touch to grave photos that, while interesting, add little substance to the life story of the occupant. Pictures add another terrific dimension to the memorials.

Many thanks for writing. Knowing that you appreciate my work makes it worthwhile and proves the value of Find A Grave.

RE: Smith/Sill family
Hi Jim

Good to hear from you. Haven't worked on the Sills in a long time, hit a roadblock at Samuel Sill b. ca 1791 in PA and died 1839 in Muskingham, Ohio. I probably need to look at that one again. But the Smith, yikes! I hit a brick wall with James B. Smith b. May 1798 in New Jersey, died 1881 in Iowa. Looking for Smiths is like looking for a needle in an oversized haystack.

Are you still working on the Lawrence family? I really appreciate all the information that you shared with me.

I have been very blessed to have some pictures from both sides of my family. I have tried very hard to share them through Find a Grave and Ancestry. It breaks my heart to see unidentified old pictures.

RE: William Ball
Hi James,
I enjoyed reading the bio of William Ball. Very interesting man. You can almost tell by the picture of Mary Ball that she was a fun person. Love your picture of Edward Lawrence - he was very handsome. I am no relation to the Balls' or Marlin family. I knew a Ball family from the Main Line that wintered in Ozona Florida years ago. You are doing great work on your family history.

RE: Frantz and Elisabeth Zeller

I am descended through Daniel's brother Jonathan born 1799 (then John 1828, Thomas 1872, John 1893, Helen 1930). Jonathan is my ggggrandfather.

We do not have Mary Kugler's first spouse, Henry Sweitzer in the database ( I'm happy to add his info if you would send it, DOB, DOD, burial, etc. Thanks!

Hi James,
Have you noticed that I also photographed the grave in St James, Gawsworth for John Barnshaw, son of Ralph & Martha Barnshaw.
Kind regards

RE: Joseph & Thomas Harrop
Hi James,
I'm so glad I could help. I actually went to St James, Gawsworth looking for some of my own relatives. Sadly I had no luck, so while I was there I took a few photos of other graves which I could easily read which I thought might at least help someone else. You were lucky because sadly a lot of the gravestones are not in very good condition and are difficult to read.
Kind regards

Patty Doyle Hughes
RE: Bytheway family
Hi Jim,
Thank you for transferring Benjamin's memorial to me. I have uploaded a copy of his birth certificate to his memorial. He had that large family and many ancestors take the incorrect name of "John" as father on his death certificate and link then his parents to a John Bytheway who married an Elizabeth Kendell (Kendle) in 1819 in Stoke Damerel. When I started my tree, I took this information, thinking it must be correct, if so many people had it out there. In searching deeper,and with more records now being available, I realized it was not correct and now is validated by a copy of his birth certificate, provided by Laurie Huffman (Bountiful, Texas), who is a Bytheway decendent from a different line. I see that you are connected thru the Marlin's, and live close to me. Not sure that we are blood related, but we are connected!
So Thanks Again!

I sent an e-mail about corrections to the above memorial. Benjamin is my 2nd GGF and I have very much researched the family.
Thank You,

RE: Caroline Eisenbrey Speel
Dear James:
Thank you for promptly correcting the information about Caroline Eisenbrey Speel and for adding her death certificate and obituary. Caroline is a first cousin to my husband's 4th great grandfather. Thank you for all the information you have added to findagrave! Much appreciated!

Eisenbrey - West Laurel Hill
I photographed this stone on Saturday and have added my photo for Philip, Maria, and daughter Sarah. Also listed on the stone are daughters: Anna Sophia (1840-1921) and Catherine Eisenbrey Hall (1839-1931).

Anna Sophia does not yet have a memorial - would you like to create one?

Catherine Hall does have a memorial (#91440439) - I thought you might want to link her up with her parents.

His name is noted as Carl Morgenroth.
His tombstone is mostly buried, so all you see is the last name.

I went and checked the RI transcription and that is the way they have it on the transcription, so I guess I wasn't paying attention and didn't catch their mistake. Let me know what you think, or if you want management.
