Memorial transfer request
Hi Gerri,
I was wondering if you would be willing to kindly transfer management for the memorial you created for Robert J. Lytle (Find A Grave Memorial #108732264) to me. Robert is my Uncle Bob, this man became a second father to me after my father past away. I am thankful that people like yourself take the time to make sure our ancestors are not forgotten.

Dear Gerri, Thank you again for another transfer. I started working on my Aunt Mary's bio yesterday. Boy does it pull a lot of memories back for me as I sit down and write. You've really been a tremendous help in my goal of preserving my ancestors information. To me it's more then names and dates. It's their stories that I want to pass on to the future generations. That way people that visit the memorials can get a flavor of who these people were. As I visit these different memorials I am amazed at the amount of work you have done. Couldn't do this without you. Thanks, Barb

Hi Gerri,

I am a member of the Spigelmyer Family and am a descendent of Hans Martin Spigelmyer. Do you still have copies of your book "The Spigelmyers of Snyder, Mifflin and Juniata County"? I would really love to get a copy or copies for my family.

Also, I would love to talk with you on some of the research I have found concerning our family. I also have some questions for you. If you are interested, please contact me my e-mail account: I always enjoy meeting other family members of our large family.

Thank you.

John Henderson Bell (#66512985)
Dear Ms. Atkins,
Thank you for creating the memorial for my great-great-great grandfather John Henderson Bell. As you may know, there are duplicate listings for him in findagrave. Yours is more accurate than the other (23700932), which incorrectly lists his burial site as the Vira Methodist cemetery. John's parents were William Bell (1763-1827) and Margaret McCartney. William's father was George Bell, and his paternal grandfather was William Bell, who emigrated from Scotland or Northern Ireland and settled in what is now Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania before 1738. The 12 children of John Henderson Bell and Mary Sigler Bell were George Bell (1812-1814), William Sigler Bell (1813-1893), Matilda Elizabeth Bell (1815-1884), Thompson George Bell (1817-1889), James Foster Bell (1818-1821), Sibella Margaret Bell (1820-1858), Sarah Bell (1823-1910), Mary Jane Bell (1825-1891), John McCartney Bell (1826-1887), Anna Eliza Bell (1829-1844), Amanda Ellen Bell (1831-1852), and Adeline Bell (1833-1906). This information is from "The Descendants of John Henderson Bell (1791-1838) and Mary Sigler Bell (1792-1857) of Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, Revised and Updated Through June 1994," by Raymond Martin Bell, John Bell Hatfield, Floy Wilson Drake, James Martin Duffin, Hal Baldwin Lloyd, and Mark Frazier Lloyd; Philadelphia, 1994.
Thank you,

RE: Mary Ella Benfer
Thanks, Gerri. That answered the question thoroughly. LOL. So, I'm still looking for a different Ella Benfer, born in the 1870s.
