Duh!!!! I've made errors before, but they're normally not quite so obvious.
I very much appreciate you taking the time to correct my mistake. If you find any other errors, please don't hesitate to let me know.
Thanks again, Steve

By John "CONNER" I'm sure you mean John "O'CONNOR." John and I uploaded approximately 25,000 memorials between 2007 and 2012. The data was from original sources: the log books of many of the cemeteries in and around Springfield, MA. They were all uploaded with spreadsheets submitted to Find-A-Grave under his account. Neither of us really cared who got the credit as our goal was to provide historical records for families and genealogists around the world. The spreadsheets only allowed for a limited amount fo information. For example, any family links had to be done after the fact. So he received thousands of emails through his account over the years to back-fill, link, correct or edit thousands of memorials. He never asked for much help with those emails.
However, now that he's in his mid-eighties and realistic regarding how long he'll be able to keep up with all this maintenance, he's been transferring entire cemeteries to my account so that I can pick up where he is being forced to step back.
I say all this to help you to understand why I have so may memorials of people who are not family members. I'm certainly not a "numbers hog," grabbing every memorial I can grab to add numbers to my profile! I'm a professional genealogist who has interest in providing good data to other researchers. Since I began receiving updates and edits, I've handled several hundred but I know there are thousands more!
I don't have any further information on these memorials, but if it's easy and I don't have to spend a great deal of research time, I might be able to answer some specific questions for you. Specific meaning questions such as "Who were their parents" or "Did they have any children."
At any rate, I've transferred both memorials to you as they are not members of my direct or collateral family.
Good luck in your research!

This is a duplicate (sort of). His name was George Nervin Myers. You can check out his memorial in the Gettysburg National Cemetery under that name.
Thanks and Best Regards,

You're welcome! Glad I could help.

I checked a few records & he is very confusing. He may still be your guy. The stone just has a year & a lot of the time, the number was rounded up or down. I've found folks in my tree with as many as 3 different birth years that I have confirmed are the same person. They don't make it easy on researchers!
Probably best to leave his memorial as is date wise for now. More documentation may become available to confirm what you already have. I'll see if I can swing by the cemetery office and ask for more information on his burial.

I found a few Otto's in Oak Grove Cemetery in Springfield, MA. I noticed you had created a memorial for John Otto there. I found a stone for a John Otto with the dates 1855-1908. Your John has a different birth year. I didn't want to assume these are the same person and add a photo without checking with you first. I also found Lizzie Otto 1863-1950 (good long life!). Is she one of your people? Please let me know how I should proceed & thanks!
All my best,

No, there were no additional gravestones. I created the memorial for Dielmann Muller and transferred it to you. I'm glad the information was helpful. Best of luck with your research!

You're very welcome. There was no gate around the plot. Most of the individual plot gates have long disappeared in most of the cemetery. The next gravestone a few feet over from Kaspar Muller was for Dielmann Muller (24 April 1845-30 October 1905). Directly next to that was a stone for Frances Brodel (died 28 October 1918, aged 46.) I have the photos if you think they are related.
