Incorrect religious name

Sister Millard's religious name is Bernardine (after Saint Bernard of Clairvaux) not Bernadine.

RE: Sr. Mary Eugenia Millard question
Hi Pat,
I photographed all the Visitation nuns' names on markers at that plot in New Cathedral because there was one photo request there. I turned all those photos over to Stephen Keller who has been researching those nuns and he kindly entered all of them into findagrave (a big task!).

I didn't come across the Ann Millard that you mentioned--sorry.

It looks like there is a duplicate entry for a Sr. Mary Paulina Millard--you might want to check into that.

It also looks like there might be a duplicate for a Sr. Bernadine also.

I'll back away from updates as it looks like Stephen has pics loaded for all the names we found, and I don't manage any of the pages.

You might want to look through all the Millards at New Cathedral and see if the correct photos are with the correct person (I can't tell). Please contact Stephen Keller (or the appropriate page manager) if you would like to help fix any of the duplicates.

Thanks, and good luck!

Sr. Mary Eugenia Millard question
Hello, you have a Sr. Mary Eugenia Millard at New Cathedral Cemetery in Baltimore--Memorial# 133718528.
I photographed the names of all the Visitation nuns there, and I found a Sr. M. Bernardine Millard's name on a bronze plaque as one of those that were transferred from Mt de Sales cemetery. All the names on the plaque appear to have their religious names on it, not their given names. Could your Mary Eugenia Millard be Sister Mary Bernardine Millard"? If so, I could load a picture of her name.
The only other Millard in that section died in 1891 and was Sr. M. Paulina Millard and is on the granite monument.
Let me know,
Dan Phelan

Richard Alan Furchtenicht

After trying to delete Joseph M. Evans as the mother of Richard Alan Furchtenicht and having no success, I deleted the original memorial and created a new one with the right parents and spouse linked (I also transferred the memorial to you).

Yours Truly,
LeRoy A.

Patrick Smith Memorial
I havent closed out my account, but youre littering a memorial with needless jargon and leaving irrelevant information about the deceased when you leave information like that. It's about the person who died, not a rant on why you cannot make links. I made the edits you suggested.

Jesse Wadlington Sparks
This is a cousin of mine. He died in Murphysboro, Tennessee, after serving as consul in Piedras Negras and rescuing a smallpox-ridden colony of Georga and Alabama blacks from Mexico.

Can anyone send me a clear copy of the photo of Cousin Jesse? I have one other photograph from CONFEDERATE VETERAN.

Thanks for your note. I made the correction on William Sparks' memorial, #45747368. Let me know if you'd like me transfer this memorial to you. I'm not researching the family other than a few Sparks who married into my MAY family. Doug

Of course. The link has been added. The Scruggs, Finch, Davis, and March families are all interrelated, back in Bedford County, TN. My great grandfather's first wife was Susan Catherine "Kittie" Scruggs, a daughter of John Elam Scruggs and his second wife. Two of his brothers also married women with Finch and Scruggs and March connections.
