My particular areas of interest are Berks, Montgomery, Schuylkill, Chester, Montour and Lehigh Counties in Pennsylvania. My strongest passion is to locate and honor all war veterans who sacrificed years of their youth,healthy lives and sometimes their adulthood. They must never be forgotten.
All of my entries to findagrave have been added with honor, one by one!
Hello Neil,
Thank you for contacting Find A Grave in regard to making changes and corrections.We have increased our requirements regarding documentation in order to improve the accuracy of information available on Find A Grave. They will need to send documentation for the update (i.e. link to website, official paperwork, source, documents, etc.) as to where this information was located. You, as a manager, can determine if the information is substantial.
If you need additional assistance, please feel free to reply to this message.
Sincerely, Marie Administrator
Accepting or rejecting information is up to the manager's discretion. We ask that you respect their decision and not submit the same edits multiple times. If there are any edits or corrections to cemetery locations or biographies, please send them directly to with proper documentation of the information, and we will be happy to make the necessary changes.
Sincerely, Marie Administrator
You are well within your rights to keep your memorial if it's the original memorial for that person. However, if you don't have any documents verifying this person was buried in this location, and someone else has pointed out that there are no records of him being buried in this location, you should change the memorial to be a Burial Unknown for the burial information until you find the correct burial location. You can make a note in the biography section for him indicating where you believe he may be buried, but the actual burial location section of the memorial should only include information that you are sure about.
Sincerely, Janea-Administrator
Do not be hasty to criticize what you consider to be inaccurate data. Consider that the information given in memorials is not only provided by the memorial manager but also by others through edit requests which cannot always be verified and therefore may be inaccurate. As of July 2017, I have approved 10,200 direct edit requests and countless more through other correspondence. Changes may also be added without the review of the memorial manager if not acknowledged in a given time period. This process is subject to revision as long as the memorial exists. And well beyond the term of the memorial manager. Be respectful that the burial was located. Ultimate accuracy of deceased is the responsibility of you and any others interested.

Please do not assume a middle name by suggesting a surname. I will not add without a baptism record, their personal signature or carved in full on tombstone. Middle initials on tombstones with first letter of mother's surname are seldom the actual baptized middle name which many incorrectly add as fact, a practice which only recently became more popular. Such initials are also often redundant with maiden names. I prefer to display names as they are most commonly perceived by skilled researchers and/or as they appear on the tombstone.

My thanks and devotion to you who are courteous, polite and appreciative. Those who are rude, demanding and condescending, don't call me, I'll call you.

Memorial # 51010612
Dear Mr. Scheidt,
I recently wrote to you regarding Find a Grave Memorial # 51010612 - John Troxel. I don't think I was quite clear on what I was questioning - and that is - the birth/death years of John Troxel.
According to census and other records, there is a John Troxel that was born 10 Apr 1825 and died 14 Mar 1886. His father is William Troxel, his mother is Barbara Troxel, and his wife is Mary Ann Yocum. This John Troxel is the father of Sarah Ann - married to Michael Hook. (I had written to you previously about Sarah) The other children I have found are Daniel B1850, Emma B1852, and William Henry Irwin B1865.
I think the John Troxel 1805-1880 is the wrong John Troxel. (I have not found any information on him) It appears possible that the John Troxel 1825-1886 is the Troxel that goes with this family information?
Your reply to my previous inquiry was that you unlinked him (John) as a son.
I see that all siblings are now removed from this memorial. I have not found information on siblings. It is possible that information was correct - except that there were 2 Johns listed: 1805-1880 and 1814-1874.
I'm sorry to bother you again, but I hope you can help me make sense of this, and if I am right, correct the memorial. Your help is appreciated. Sherry

Anna Kester Palmer # 167297033
Hello Neil,
I am attempting to pin down further information on Anna. Kester family genealogy has the same dates which you have for her on the memorial. Palmer family genealogy has some other dates. I read over your page, and was wondering if you could provide information about the dates on the memorial, to help point to which family genealogy is most correct.

Dear Mr. Scheidt,
Thank you for all you do on this site. I'm sure many people have gotten information they would never have found on their own.
I am the great grandaughter of Charles (Mc)Mullen and am the one who submitted the photo of the tombstone. I was wondering where you got your information on his early years with him living in Maryland and Bloomsburg. I have never been able to find anything on him before his life in the Civil War. I do have his citizenship papers listing Antrim County as his birthplace but there is little more I could find.
Thank you for your help. I would like to know more about this courageous gentleman.

John Troxel Find-a-Grave
Dear Mr. Scheidt,
This is in regard to John Troxel - Find A Grave Memorial # 51010612. The birth is listed as 1805 and death as 1880. His father, William Troxel was born in 1796 according to the site. If this was so he, William, would have been 9 years old when he became a father. The information I have collected, mostly censuses, suggest 1825 as his birth year. Would you please check this memorial and let me know the correct information? With thanks for all your work, Sherry
