Thank you Find A Grave Member, Frank L Courter

Recently I had confirmed on Find A Grave, the burirals of my Great Great Grand Father's brother and his second wife, William Tennyson Fitzgerald and Isabella Kase Fitzgerald, in Union Cemetery in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania.  Now, I find that the burials are unmarked, however, at least I have confirmed they are there, along with their daughter Sallie, aka Sarah.  I also now know their causes of death.  These are small pieces of information, but we all know how wonderful it is to add even these little facts into our databases.  I wouldn't have found this information if it wasn't for Frank L Courter who is another Find A Grave contributor.  Frank was able to confirm William, then sent me info on Isabella, and when I asked if he knew of additional Fitzgeralds he also gave me information on Sallie.  Frank gave me his time freely and supplied me with this information.  I am so appreciative to his generosity.  I even took the time and wrote the following email to Find A Grave as a special thank you to Frank:

Dear Find A Grave Staff,
Thank you for such a wonderful website.  I wanted to share with you over the past week I've been corresponding with another contributor, Frank L Courter.  Frank has helped me add many pieces to my brickwall family that were missing in my research.  The brickwall has yet to come down, but the information he has provided has also helped confirm some information that I was seeking.  He has been very generous adding additional information for me as well and help me with additional information that I asked him if he would be able to help me with.  So many contributors, such as Frank, make this such a wonderful website to be a part of.  He has given me his time generously to give me this additional information and I can't thank him enough!  This is one of the best ways I could think of to recognize Frank!
Thanks again for such a wonderful site!

So this is another way I can give Frank a special thank you for all his help.  Thanks again Frank!
