RE: Re: Find A Grave Correction: Thomas Houston
Thanks Dave. Your memorial is a cenotaph. Thomas is actually buried in Green-Wood Cemetery.I checked with them today. Would you mind making note of that? Thanks so much! ~Anne

Good Morning,

Would you please remove the photo you put up of my grandfather's grave marker (and which includes my uncle Pete's marker). Posting it was a thoughtful gesture on your part, but I had already posted one, and it only serves to clutter my memorial to Grandpa David.

I appreciate it!

Thank you,

-Joshua Reader

Thank you Dave Francis for creating and transferring the profile for Matilda Wright to me. I have been working on my family genealogy since 1991 and have gathered quite a bit of information which I would like to add to enhance their profiles. Regards, Jo-Ann Wright
