Bio and Links
I am currently in the process of putting together what appears will be a 3500-page genealogy of the descendants of Benjamin Smith and Sarah Paul of Dighton, Massachusetts and Westminster, Vermont. As a side to this, I'm trying to link as much of this family as possible via Find-a-Grave.

Other interests are the descendants of John Kuhn of Livonia Township, Michigan, who came here from Prussia circa 1852; the descendants of James Cloyes and Penelope Nichols; and a few other scattered families in New England and the South.

If I have some of your family, and they are not connected to a project I am currently working on, I'm open to transferring them to folks who are serious Findagrave contributors.

While the new editing features can be useful, I have had to do some re-edits because I was not aware that the changes made by others are automatic if not acted upon by the manager of the memorial. While I genuinely appreciate additions and corrections, please make sure they are accurate before you edit.

Charles F Horner
Hello, I'm wondering about the bio and dates added to Charles F Horner's page. His headstone says his birth year is 1871, the bio says 1870 and the date at the top says 1876. He is my 2nd great grandfather and the date discrepancies is making my research a bit harder. I wasn't sure if you had any clarification on the dates. Thank you for all you do!

Eva is not listed.
Eva is twin sister of Veva Carpenter. She is missing from a lot of lists.
Is it too late to simply send you Carpenter photos? I know....

Harry Henry Hornstein
I was intrigued by your comment that you're compiling a book. I was interested to know more about your project.

How are you related to Harry Hornstein?

RE: Harry Henry Hornstein
I appreciate you getting back with me on this. His wife May Belle Harris and I are 2nd cousins 3x removed, so I am not a blood relative of Harry's, but of his wife.

I asked this question of you because I am corresponding with someone who I believe is my 5th cousin, a direct descendant of Harry Hornstein, and she is interested to know where you found the middle name "Henry" as she has never found any information that shows what his middle name was.

If you happen to come across a source for it, I would love to know what that is so I can let her know.

Thanks again,

Harry Henry Hornstein
I just visited your memorial for Harry Henry Hornstein, Find A Grave Memorial# 147865620, and I was wondering if you have any sources for Harry's middle name Henry? I have not been able to find anything that confirms that. If you can point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.
Best Regards,

Thanks for sending the links to Charles parents. Found Charles living with his mother and sister in the 1920 US Census. I always feel very happy when I can link someone to to their family.
