RE: Thomas Jefferson Suggs & his wife Martha
It's me again, I checked the Missouri archives, the death certificate for Martha is very wrong,a lot of mistakes, and they don't have Thomas'..I have he died in 1966, the archives only go to the date on his stone is wrong. The stones on Steve's are much newer made,so I would think yours are the correct ones,just they etched the wrong yr on his death.. According to my uncle his grandfather had a Native American Funeral rites on a local reservation..Thomas was also Military, he was enlisted for WWI & II..Martha's middle name is Caroline,her father was Capt Hiram Fewell and Effa Polson, name of husband is wrong, it says Thomas J Fewell,the informant Charles Suggs,was the son..her birth is wrong.. but for the cemetery it says Glensted..I will ask cousin Carla,and do a bit more research..maybe one set was done cause the other couldn't be found or something.. nvr got email,I will get back at you,might take a few days

William Moore
You have a memorial for this man in Moore's cemetery. I don't know if this would interest you or not, but I'm going to add a link on here that has a notation where the cemetery is. The map is from 1853-89. It was odd, but from the old map and knowledge of the area, I found the area the cemetery would be in, and then came here to look and see if it was listed and found this in the exact place i had it narrowed down to.

Moore cemetery is just to the left of the chronology list.

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Georgia Hallford in Taberville Cemetery (Memorial# 34952090).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the non-profit Alford American Family Association's collection of Missouri Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Richard Parker

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,

In general
As a person who is getting started on Find A Grave (I've contributed a little so far), I can say with certainty that I will NEVER have your attitude. Rude, condescending and belittling.
When all is said and done, this is a website not the Magna Carta. Chill out and learn some respect.

RE: James Henry and Mary Maxine Suggs
Thanks a lot for letting me know about the other memorials for James and Mary. They actually were added 2 days prior to mine. I usually check pretty good; but, guess these slipped up on me. Mine have many links, so, I'll be looking into it. Thanks again.

Ok, thanks for the clarification. Perhaps people would not jump to the wrong conclusion it some of your messages were not so negative. And you sir, have a lot of nerve calling anyone "narrow minded". Have a nice day and life!

I notice that you have listed only one person in this cemetery. Do you plan to complete the entries? I have the names and dates and links for most of the people in this cemetery and pictures of all the gravestones. However I am reluctant to add any info for this cemetery because I am unsure of how you handle this since I assume you are the one that added the cemetery to findagrave and seem to enforce "I added the cemetery to findagrave ergo I control all info that is added and will not allow anyone else to make entries". If this is the case then the cemetery can stay as it is. However, I am willing to update this cemetery with all people who are buried there without any interference from you and also add gravestone pics for all of them. However, I will not send my info to you so that you can add it; that is to much extra work. I am also willing to transfer all these memorials to you after I have completed the work as I don't really care who manages the memorials. I would prefer however to transfer management to the proper family members. I have done the work on and my info is reliable. If you can't live with these conditions then we have nothing else to discuss. By the way you have no description of the cemetery given and your gps info is wrong. That puts the cemetery in the middle of a field and there is nothing there and it is not even close to the location.
The ball is in your court. How do you want to proceed? No response will give me the answer that you can't live with these conditions and I will take no further action nor will I contact you again.

O.H.P. Rippeto
Just because something is published in a book, does not make it correct. In the book "Wells" by Alice Katherine Wells his name is Oliver Henry Perry Rippeto and nowhere has it ever been HOWARD. So here is a deal. If you will just use the initials H. P. for his 2 middle names and link him to his parents Thomas B. Rippeto # 162391490 and Ann McWilliams Nelson # 162391564, I will remove my duplicate memorial.

New Memorial for O.H.P. Rippeto
I made a new correct memorial to replace the ones I asked you to delete and you refused. Rippeto (no first name) and O.H.R. Rippeto both are yours and both are wrong and so now there are 4 for him. Mine is the only one that is correct. That is the connection.

His stone and memorial has been put onto Find A Grave, 3 times none are absolutely correct. Since I will be buried next to him I would like to have his memorial deleted so I can put in the correct and more information.

James Bass
Isaac Bass born 1854 died 1917
I am trying to locate the grave of Isaac Bass, my great grandfather.
The directions on Find A Grave say that the Bass Cemetery is on highway 301 near Elm City, NC.
We drove all around and asked several people, but could not find it.
Do you have any more detailed directions you could share with us.
I would like to stand near his grave and reflect on his life as I have come to know him through my research.
Thank you very much.

Although his MODC does say he was buried in the City Cemetery in Osceola.
I was wrong about the last burials in the Cemetery...found 1 in 1959, and I'm not too proud to admit when I am wrong! :-)

His Missouri Death Certificate clearly states he was buried in Osceola Cemetery, Osceola, St Clair County Missouri. The old "Kate "Warren" Cemetery", I believe the last burials were in the 1920's. just FYI...

Crown Hill Cemetery- Elmer A Knatcal
Many thanks for getting Elmer's headstone onto Find A Grave. It's a great picture and it sure helps in verifying family info.

I wonder if you'd allow me to use the pic in the family research, with credit of course?

The memorial you have for this woman is incorrect. Please remove from the Freeman Cemetery. This is my great grandmother and the picture you have used is the picture I took of the headstone in the Rosebank Cemetery in Mulberry, KS. She and her husband are buried in the same cemetery as many of their children. Please make the corrections..
