Thank you so much for your very timely response to my request --- and, of course, for creating the memorials in the first place!

Transfer memorial
Richard, I am requesting the transfer of 2 memorials. The first is my mom's paternal grandfather (my great-grandfather), Theodore Johnson #45446787, and the second is my mom's paternal grandmother (my great-grandmother) Ida Caroline Swanson Johnson #45446776, both set up by you in December 2009. I am their great-granddaughter, Diana Wright Walker, daughter of Irene Louise Johnson Wright and Wilford Robert (Bob) Wright, and am also requesting the transfer of their memorials, my maternal grandparents' memorials, and my mom's maternal grandparents' memorials from their creators to me. I grew up in Meadville and they are all a part of my very special family memories, carefully preserved by my mom and my dad (the funeral director!). Thank you for considering my request, and I look forward to hearing from you very soon.

Thank you for the unsolicited transfer of Wilhelmina May "Winnie" Gregory Mayes's Memorial# 81915089. (I try to sponsor the memorials of all of my blood relatives.)

And I thank you even more for all of your great Find A Grave work!

Best regards!

I spoke to my cousin Carla Humphreys, she said the cemetery records say the plots in Glensted are where they are buried, that you have the wrong couple,unless those engraving mistakes,and someone put the ones up in hickman as a memorial,but they are buried in Glensted.

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.
