Bio and Links
Bio Photo I believe that Find A Grave is helpful in discovering one's ancestors as well as helping others to find their Ancestors. It also is a great way to honor those who have gone before us.

The names I am researching are Wilson, Conaway, Baker and Mason in West Virginia. The families of Dew and Smallwood in Virginia & Maryland. In Pennsylvania are the Neusbaum, Evert, Witherow, Rosenberry, Kuhn, Crider and Over Families.

Duplicate memorial
Hi, I believe you have created a duplicate memorial. Your memorial #136691995 Karen America is a duplicate for memorial #36398432 Karen Dillsworth. They have the same first and middle names and birth and death dates. Would you mind deleting yours since the other one was created first? Your help is much appreciated.

Memorial 89038696
Good Morning -

I was writing to see if you had anymore information on Memorial # 89038696 (James E Mason). I see two entries for the same person/grave site which is a relative of mine. i wanted to confirm that the details on both are accurate as it relates to the relatives & children; so i wanted to see how you obtained the family information. Not a criticism at all, i just want to be sure that i tag my other relatives that are related to the right memorial or see if they can be merged.

The other memorial number is 170274668

Thank you much

ES Hays
ES Hays is actually Edward Sylvester Hays (1853-1890), my great uncle. Would you please link him to his parents: John West Hays 86005545 and Elizabeth Westenhaver Hays 86005288?

If you would be agreeable I would not mind having you transfer him to me.

Charles Dew
Dear MDG,
I am writing to thank you for adding the memorial for Charles Dew, (Find A Grave Memorial# 136315716) and respectfully ask if you would be willing to share your sources with me. I had been struggling for years to prove beyond all reasonable doubt that Charles was in fact buried in the Dew Cemetery on Potts Creek, but without success. There are lots of online references to this, but I was unable to trace any back to a reputable source. Sounds like you finally broke the code though, and I would be honored if you would share how you did it.

#46903191 Johannes Flickinger
The parent on this memorial is in error.
Per Pa Archives 6, VI, 219 - Rev John Waldschmidt officiated at the wedding of John Flickinger and Anna Handschly on Mar 30, 1784, and gives John's parent as Joseph (and Ehster) Flickinger. Anna's father is given as Henry Handschly. There is not currently a memorial for these Flickingers, yet,
but they are buried in the Old Flickinger Cemetery in Cocalico, Lancaster Co, PA, where John was born. I'll try to get one put up as soon as I can. Thanks.

I appreciate you posting this memorial

Memorial Transfer
You created a memorial for my maternal grandparents. I respectfully ask that you transfer them to me. You have them listed as Hazel A. Ensinger 110338305 and Frank W. Ensinger 110338212. The spelling of the last name is actually Ensminger as noted on their grave marker.
Thanks for your consideration,
