RE: Duplicated grave memorials
Good Morning Linda,
Thank you for being so annoying to people. These are MY FAMILY. You did not send me the first memorial # that you speak of. I'd like to know which memorials that you say was transferred to me that I made a duplicate memorial for. Please explain to me which memorials that you through your venom toward.

I do believe you are right. As I have the links to his parents and additional information, I am afraid to delete mine, as will lose the links. Judy

RE: King John post script
That's a great one, Linda! Most of the stone errors I've seen (so far) are for very old people whose friends or family apparently just didn't know when they were born. But, isn't this fun?!

RE: King John post script
Linda, I was just talking about one of the apparent causes of duplicates. These seen to occur when the name is presented in a different way than found on the stone, again resulting in more than one memorial for the same person. When there is no grave photo (more than half of the memorials I've reviewed), I wish the source of the burial info was at least included. I'd have more confidence that the memorial was at least a little better than one of the "burial unknowns". :-)

Thanks, Linda!

Although a new member to Find A Grave, I have followed it since its inception (and have been separately working on our family tree for several decades). I joined after F.A.G. evolved to a genealogy resource instead of just a grave registry. I've read the guidelines (and your profile). In the short time here, I have discovered many duplicates which have since been deleted or merged. Administration is very helpful there. I agree that "unknown burial" memorials are the most frequent source of that problem, but not the only. I think Excel loads without stone photos are also major contributor.

RE: Thomas H. Brents Memorial
Good news! This morning I pulled up the memorial to get the number to send the email and found that they have already fixed it! I had noted the correct grave location in the photo captions, so I guess someone noticed and fixed it when they were approving the photos.

By the time I made it to the right cemetery, the light was going and a couple of the photos of other Brents did not turn out well, so I will return in a couple days to finish photographing the plot. But I got some good photos of several Stirlings which appear to be related (because they use Brents as a first or middle name on several family members and are buried right next to the Brents). They currently have no memorials, so I will establish some later today.

Thomas H. Brents Memorial
Hello! I have claimed your photo request for the grave of Thomas Hurley Brents in Walla Walla, WA. I will shortly upload photos to the memorial, however, since you have an interest in Mr. Brents, I wanted you to be aware that his memorial is in the wrong cemetery! I first went out to the Fort Walla Walla cemetery where his memorial has him located. It is a very small and well-maintained cemetery that is easy to walk through, and I did not find him there. On a hunch, I checked the records for the main cemetery in town, Mountain View Cemetery. Mountain View has all their burial records accessible online by going to this link: If you search his name at that link, you will see that the plot number listed on the memorial matches and all the other info matches, but this search page is ONLY for Mountain View Cemetery. So, I went out to Mountain View and found his grave there and got the photos you requested. Unfortunately, this is not an easy thing to fix, because the memorial is maintained by Findagrave instead of by a private party. There is no link to suggest an edit of this type (changing the cemetery). I will attempt to email Findagrave about this error, but I understand that they are not very quick to respond to emails. Perhaps you will want to contact them as well, or perhaps (since you are a much more experienced member than I!) you will know a better way to fix this. If a new memorial needs to be created, you have my permission to transfer my photos of the grave. There is a large family plot for the Brents at Mountain View, and most of the graves are not photographed, so I took additional photos which I will upload to the memorials as I have time. Thanks!

RE: Welcome to Find A Grave
Just saw your sweet note and so sorry that I did things wrong. I see by your kind note that it has been about 4 months since you wrote this, I had a major surgery and now just getting back to feeling good Sorry it took so long to respond. I hope everyone that I added pictures took my pictures down by now, and I never added a grave that I didn't search for it first. My mistake and you don't have to police me anymore for I will never add anything again.

Thank you,
Janice Poolson

You have a photo request for Emma Thompson at Green Hill Church in Screven County Ga. I think I have what you are looking for but am not sure. I would rather email you the pictures and you make the determination.

RE: No grave marker found....
As there was not plot information for Cassie listed in the request, I searched the database for any relatives that might also be buried at Arbutus Memorial Park and found Andrew's memorial. However, I was not sure that this was the correct Andrew Johnson, spouse of Cassie, as the obituary information claims she was survived in death by him. Since it is noted that she died in 1974, the Andrew Johnson under Memorial #134231375 did not fit as it shows he passed away in 1972 - two years before her. I inquired at the office for her location and was advised that their online database was down. The gentlemen I spoke to originally did a search for Cassie Johnson to no avail. Once I advised him that her husband's name was Andrew he did a second search and came up with the two plots located in Section O. If you feel strongly that the Andrew Johnson under Memorial #134231375 is the correct Andrew, I will return to the cemetery and take a look at the mausoleum spaces as that is where his FindAGrave picture was taken. Please let me know if you would like me to take a second look for Cassie.

RE: Owners of Higginbotham Family Cemetery, Owens Farm Road, Yulee
Thanks, Linda. I will get a hold of Dot and Grumpy. What a great idea on the marker on Atlantic Ave, especially with the 250th anniversary of Florida's British Period. Who are the other RW Vets beside Burris?

Owners of Higginbotham Family Cemetery, Owens Farm Road, Yulee
Hey Linda;
I hope all is well. The West Nassau Historical Society and others are doing research on the British period in Florida. Do you know and/or have the contact info on the owners of the Higginbotham Family Cemetery on Owens Farm Road, Yulee? We are interested in Burris Higginbotham, Revolutionary War vet. The Historical Society is also placing a official historical marker in Kings Ferry next year. We will keep you posted on this.

RE: Leaving Bio information left with flowers
Linda - thanks for contacting me. I will do things differently as I didn't realize they deleted the notes. I will add the info as a note and at the same time request a change or addition to the bio. As you know, some people will never change or add info. Thanks for your work on Find A Grave. I love adding info because it helps tie up loose ends.
