Find A Grave - Gardner

This fall, I saw that the findagrave.com page for a relative was wrong: not the right parents, etc. I got the information corrected by sending a note to the person who originally created in the page. This person ought to be commended for doing thousands of graves. In this case, the changes were made in short order as I had supporting material. Since then, I have several other requests pending.

Now, families need to step up and monitor the grave pages for those they know or care about. One can ask to have the findagrave record moved to one's control. Hopefully, we can collect the Gardner ones together for easy maintenance of the information.

So, let's start with Frank. A. Gardner (the Gardner author). The page is to be maintained by the Thomas Gardner Society, Inc. Notice that I have his death date which was not noted in the TEG and TGA articles on his grandparents. I found this date via Harmony Grove Cemetery records where Dr. Frank is buried in lot 384-300.

In that large lot in Harmony Grove are Dr. Frank's wife and daughter. Also, we find Ann's great-grandparents, grandparents, and several aunts, uncles, and cousins. Also, there are several in-laws.

The lot was bought by Joseph G. Dennett in 1880 when his wife died; he was buried there 1882. Ann's great-grandfather, Joseph D. Gardner, bought the lot in 1898. The latest burial was 1973; there are several open graves.

We have mentioned the cemetery several times, as Thomas Gardner, Sr. was moved there in the 1840s. Where Thomas is remains an open question.
