If the Find A Grave information is correct you should add the profile suggested by the information.
I agree that you should start with the Find-a-Grave info.  Do the places make sense to you?  So far you have no locations on your family profiles.  The more clues you can add, the more likely to find additional information.

Good luck! -NGP

Can you tell me who your grandfather is? I would need dates and places of where your grandfather has lived? I have done quite a bit of researched on other ancestors and maybe I can help you. That is if you know when your grandfather was born or where he lived.Then tell me about your Great Grandfather. Dates and places or his occupation? Thanks. Nancy
My nephew showed my a death certificate it shows his Albert Gabriel's father as Gilbert Cox Kansas City Missouri
I went to find a grave and found this:  Gilbert Cox - born Aug 15, 1853 - died Sep 6, 1893 Fountain Park Cemetery -- Randolph Co, Ind   -------Find a grave # 106215817. I believe this is him. Please let me know if you need more help.  Nancy
How can you be sure?  This guy is the missing link in my family line if it is him.  It sorta sounds correct by the way my ancestors were all coming this route.  Thanks!!!  This is really great news!  Robert Cox

This is my father.  I am Robert Floyd Cox.
Yes Robert, I know that is your father.  The reason I sent you those couple of messages is so you could have info on your grandfather and after you make profiles for him and siblings etc it will make it easier for the rest of us to search further back in time.  Also you will have some sources to enter as WikiTree wants sources shown on every profile.  I will look further for the father of Albert Gabriel Cox and family.
