125668066 Galatin Hamilton
Hi Mr. Burke:
I am interested in the documentation for Galatin Hamilton.
In some research I have found that he is son to James Hamilton, 1st Duke of Hamilton, 1st Duke of Hamilton (b. 1606) and Mary Margaret Hamilton (born Fielding 1613).
However, in a wiki article for James, and for Lady Mary, there is no mention of Galatin.

mentions no Gallatin.
Thank you.

William Hoover RIle
Hi Robert!

Your work has been immensely helpful as I am also digging into the Rile family line. Your photos of grave markers has been wonderful as travel to NE from OH isn't easy! Wondered if you could have another look at the gravestone for William Hoover Rile (Find A Grave Memorial# 25395694) as the picture appears to show a birthdate of April 26, 1811 whereas the Find A Grave listing shows April 11, 1811. Thanks very much! Let me know if I can help with any Riles in OH. My best, Amy

Hello Robert,

I am very interested in the documentation that supports the above referenced record. Can you tell me how you were able to document the birth of Robert Swete in 1278, England.

Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.

duplicate memorials
Hi Robert,

It's me again, showing up like a bad penny.
This memorial #127365520 for Rebecca Rusco/e [my 8th gr-grandmother] appears to be a duplicate of #36802031.
I do want to thank you for all the dedicated work you do for Find A Grave. You do so many memorials it would probably be a miracle if there were not some duplicates. Because you have done many for my family members I want you to know I really appreciate your dedication to the memorials.

Thanks again,
Marilynne Roscoe

duplicate memorials
Hi Robert,

I believe this [Find A Grave Memorial# 127360662] is a duplicate of Find A Grave Memorial# 25911259. Would you mind removing yours please?

Thank you for your time & efforts.
