RE: Carter lines in Charlton Co, GA
Thanks for the information and responding about Davis. Your research is quite thorough. I was wondering if you have a public family tree at on Malachi's family. I feel confident that your data would be useful in searching for JS family since the ydna indicates a relationship. Nieca

RE: Names on the title of the memorial
Linda, do not worry about my requests for now. My daughter had a horrible auto accident and is in ICU. I will make request again later, when I can. Thanks so much for your help and email.

Davis E. Thompson
I appreciate all the effort and information you have contributed to this site. You have been a tremendous help to me in tracing Thompson families in Ga and Fl.

I am a descendent of Jonathan Seth and Narcissus Thompson of Clinch Co., GA. I noticed you had placed a flower on the memorial of Davis E. Thompson 54675172. I was hoping you could share some insight into his family line. He is linked at Find A Grave and in many ancestry trees to the above family. There were at least two Davis Thompson males born in GA around 1861/62. One the son of JS and the other the son of Guy Thompson and wife, Zerua (many spellings in census records).
I have no source information to solidly link Davis E. to either family. My only hint is that he lists his father's birthplace as Connecticut. The Guy Thompson family originated in Connecticut. Any info you would be willing to share would be much appreciated.

We recently received the YDNA results of a male descendent of JS from FamilyTree. Based on your information at the Malachi memorial, we are in the same subset and distantly related.

Best wishes, Nieca Sharrard 48038284

Passing Through...
Thank you
Linda David... I appreciate all the work you have done on Find A Grave and the loving care you put into the memorials you have created. I mainly involve myself with my own ancestors and descendants, my relatives... and a few friends I wanted to honor when it seemed no one else would do that. That's all. I just wanted to say thank you. You are a breath of fresh air on Find A Grave. (smile)

RE: Thurman Gordon's info
Linda....I have sent your reply to earlier e-mail to the family member who was giving me the information. I feel that she knows far more about this family than you or I since she is a family member.

Also, I would appreciate it if you didn't lecture me on Find A Grave rules and regulations. I don't need that -- in fact I would appreciate it if you just left me alone.

A family member gave me the birth/death dates. They also tell me they want to keep his wife's memorial on Find A Grave.

RE: Obits and photos
Let's see if this goes through
Seems like IPad and here are fighting

Agree on obits in token..should be deleted
Having other tokens removed if not offensive is WRONG
Animation yes.. Not allowed ...Flags and Angels for vets and Babies. Are great and not MESSY

BU.. If recording from web site of funeral homes
They are starting no info on interment and putting PVT
I called one and asked .. Said they suggest it to the family
So that is the new thing in the NE.. Burial Unknown

PERIOD after a letter ....I got over a 100 edits for that on MR and middle.. That person has NO LIFE.. Their way only admin had to tell her to stay away from me.. GERBER?
No word since last summer..
Unles you have RED or GREEN on your name then we answer to U.. Not the So call Police here.. Refuse to get the B/P up over all this stuff.. Agree Topic is Closed

Obits and photos
There is a very fine grey line here. Not black or white..
Rules where put up by Jim founder, now ancestry..
Lots of obits here.. Give credit where you got info, it was ok then, just remove last names of family.members
Photos.... Now this will go on for yrs.. On famous they take them from where every
They could never take those photo .. They are excuse for famous
Newspaper / Net ones ...give credit where they came from, if it doesn't say copyright.. U are ok.. Another fine line or grey...

Also, what gets me is.. Obits people.. Some just adding dates, great but the person is not even viewed or buried yet.. They are linked to funeral homes an local newspapers with emails..
They are in it for the numbers

Some people get upset saying they had a life.. Add a little bio about them for the future, take last names off.. Get no reply back they add it into the tokens ...people who make the memorial is just set in their own ways period
This will go on and on..
Find a Grave is for graves not a genealogy site , but then again, ancestry would not had bought it from Jim, if not genealogy.... Good luck.. Give credit , and enjoy recording here..BAP on the forum

RE: We are crossing messages.
Thanks for getting the name and links straightened out. I noticed all but about a dozen of the duplicates at Camp Ground have been removed or the ones at Sanctified. Can't remember the count to know which ones were removed from which cemetery. Anyway the ones remaining are because they have differents birth/death years, but they are still the same persons. Thanks for your help and try to stay warm, the freeze is coming!

RE: obit left with flower
I'm looking thru the FAQ's for Find A Grave for what is and is not allowed.

I don't think that is the reason that some don't get posted via the bio because I have found some that are posted and they are using what is actually in the obit itself including the living person's name.

Glad you brought this to my attention. The pictures I know your not suppose to post unless they are actually your own picture and I see alot of folks posting pictures that have appeared in the newspaper.

I don't want to cause any problems or issues.

Thanks again for the heads up.

RE: obit left with flower
Wow, I didn't realize that they delete the obits in the flowers section. Alot of times when you send the obits to the contributor they do not bother to post them in the bio. Alot of the contributors do but not all.

I will have to look into this issue. Thanks for the heads up. I had been posting them in the flowers for research material for others.

Thanks and have a good day!

RE: Thanks for the photo
You are more than welcome for the photographs, I can not be certain what folks are buried there. I did notice a lot of graves have folks listed as died in other states. I have heard they duplicate some markers for the this location which would make sense versus transporting remains which can be quite costly. That would actually make them cenotaphs. Basically another marker to honor someone buried elsewhere. I have an great uncle buried in Flanders Field and has a stone with his family in Scotland. I would be unsure how to determine where they are actually buried. Good luck with your research.
