Bio Photo Dear Fellow Find a Graver's:

Currently I am very busy with work and family and not working on my FAG memorials on a regular basis. If you send a request I will eventually get to it.

I put a ton of hours working on this years ago and I do not appreciate the nasty emails that end up in my box. It doesn't help your cause it only makes me not want to do the corrections or transfers that you are requesting.

Life goes on and hobbies change....

Mary Briggs
Find A Grave Memorial# 41668437
Hi Busy Girl, This is a small request but when you find time will you do something for me? On the above mentioned memorial, in the military line, make it U.S. and spell out Mexican. Mary

Anna Chase
I have Anna Chase as Anna Belle Hatfield who married Charles Sebert Chase. Can you tell me if there is a different couple with the same name and dates. I am really confused.

Hi there

Just wondering if you were related to the Powells in Maple Grove Cemetery?
For instance

Birth date
I am sorry the death place is incorrect, however, the birth date was given to me by Anita's sister Elsie.

Jolly Family Management Transfer
Hello, let me start off by thanking you for creating and managing the memorials for my family.

William Jolly (Find A Grave Memorial# 26440039) is my second great-grandfather and I would greatly appreciate it if you could be so kind as to transfer management for his memorial to me along with the memorials for my aunt and uncle; Floy M Jolly Bachi (Memorial# 26438252) and Sam Ford Jolly (Memorial# 26440038).

Thank you!

If no one else with family ties has contacted you regarding the management of F.A.G. #26956477, I would like to manage it as a part of my family tree. A transfer would be appreciated greatly, if at all possible.

Thanks for creating the memorial, and including a full obituary.

Harvey Amerson #26438130 et al

I've gotten hooked on the Amerson/Dougherty/Pittman/Rumney families and have happily been working away at connections etc. (My husband is distantly related via the Book family from Ontario, Canada.)

I've put in a couple of edits for Harvey Amerson but thought you might be interested in the information on him at this website:

Although I have found several family memorials on Find A Grave I have not been able to to find Louise Dougherty Amerson's memorial anywhere.

Thank you.

Mary Sophia Burgess # 26438652
Mary was the sister of my GG Grandmother, Eleanor Beaubier Visger.
I am hoping you can tell me where you got the information for her death. I can find no death records of any kind for her. Maybe if you have some information, it will help me find some kind of death record for her.
Her name was Mary Sophrona Beaubier, and Louis Burgess was one of her husbands. She and Louis had several children, one of them, Eva Cowper Strong is buried there in the same plot with Mary and Louis.

Thank You!

HER BIRTHDATE DOESN'T MATCH MATILDA WHO MARRIED LAWRENCE JAMES NEWSON IN 1877, BUT MARRIAGE DATE MATCHES. THE CENSUS I HAVE FOR HER INDICATE A 1847 BIRTHDATE AND SHE HAS A SISTER NAMED JOSEPHINE. HER DEATH DATE DOESN'T MATCH EITHER--I TEND TO BELIEVE THAT MATILDA DID MARRY CHARLES SMITH FIRST, BUT THEN SHE MARRIED LAWRENCE JAMES NEWSON IN 1877 AFTER CHARLES DIED IN 1879--FROM ANY RECORDS I CAN FIND, THE GAY THAT MARRIED NEIL MORRISON WENT BY THE NAME JOSEPHINE - NOT MATILDA]

I know you say you are very busy now and not working on these records, so I am leaving this public message for anyone interested to see. I can be contacted at
