Bio and Links
I have been researching my family tree for 35 years. I know how difficult it is to find info on one line of my family. Hopefully, I can help others find their loved ones easier. I still cannot find anything on my Great Grandfather Simon Henry Myers b. PA 1817 or his family. Supposedly he moved to Ohio, Indiana and then Illinois where he died. He sometimes spelled his name Myres on Fed Census. If anyone has information on the Myers family, please share with me.

PLEASE use the memorial Suggestion method from the EDIT tab. I receive a lot of email updates a day. Without this information your update will be delayed or ignored.

I would be delighted to transfer any memorial to a relative. Just write and ask. My goal is to document as many cemeteries as possible for genealogy research.

Would you consider transferring her memorial to me? She is my great grandmother's sister and the previous information I gave you wasn't totally correct so the bio isn't written well. Thank you in advance

Medora Wood FAG #33243986
Hello, I contacted you via your email address requesting that the picture you posted of Medora's headstone be removed. I have an old photo of her I'd like to post to the site but Find A Grave is telling me there is no room to upload it. Thank you for considering my request, I appreciate it. TADDY

RE: Bessie
You are doing some good work here. I hope you find the letter. I'll look forward to it. Say, I posted some more photos on Bessie. Wished I would have met her...never did. Ruthi

Bessie Erickson
Thank you for posting all those photos of my Great Aunt Bessie Erickson that later married Wenz.
You have Bessie born in Wisconsin....actually she was a PIONEER of Dakota Territory. She was born
12 March 1883 on Morris Creek, Lawrence Co., Dakota Territory (later Meade Co., South Dakota).
Her mother, Julia Thompson-Erickson, finally was able to join her husband in 1882 on their homestead.
Julia came with her father, Nels Thompson, and believe a brother, John (Jonas) Thompson...and came from Wisconsin to Dakota Territory. Wow, those must have been the days! Bessie was born about 9-10 months later.

Glenn Richard Davy
Dear Monkey Cat,

I am researching my paternal grandfather's WWI army unit, Company B, 355th Infantry, 89th Division. According to the History and Roster of the 355th Infantry, Glenn Richard Davy was a member of this unit. This is confirmed by his gravestone.

I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with my project, but I want to eventually publish something. So, with your permission, I would like to use your photograph of the grave of Glenn Richard Davy (Find A Grave Memorial# 51631782). Please let me know if this would be acceptable.

Thank you, I appreciate your time.

With warm regards,

Bryan Anderson

Charles Nelson Grainger memorial #52822449
Hello! Charles Nelson Grainger is my Great-Great-Granduncle. His first name is spelled incorrectly on his monument as Carlos. Would you be willing to transfer his memorial to me? Thank you very much! Sincerely, Patrick Flahive
