|Kincatcher||Charles Howard headstone.|
Hello, Quentin. I am interested in the headstone of Charles Howard, buried in Marion County, MO. He is supposed to be buried in Minor-Sand---- Cem in Hannibal. This Charles Howard was buried in Greenwood Cem, Palmyra, Marion Co, MO and was born after my Charles Howard (also spelled Harward) . Do you know of any other Harward/Howard surnames in either of these cemeteries? Is there a record in Marion Co, do you know for all the burials in these two cemeteries that would include Harward or Howard? I am looking to verify my Charles, who the headstone says died 1889, but should be 1883-it is difficult to red on the stone. Can you direct me to where I might inquire about seeing a list of burials in either of those cemeteries, with an address or email address? My Charles lived in Palmyra from after 1865 to his death in 1883, and this listing at Greenwood, might be a relative of my Charles that I am unaware of. Would it be common to live in Palmyra and be buried in Hannibal as the F-A-G site gives? I'm not sure ow far apart they are. Any help for a list of burials in either of those cemeteries would be most appreciated. Thanks , Dar at email@example.com

|JohnRandolphPrinceWmVa||Sometimes the essence of this poem does get miconstruded|
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
So many years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

I see where you have taken many pictures of stones in Missouri and I wonder if you are close to Glenwood Cemetery in Schuyler County, Mo.?
If so, would you be able to get 2 pictures for me? I have asked for them the right way but no luck so far.

Hi Mr. Bremmer, In regards to the subject, Otto Elliott and his wife Bertha, the info on their pages regarding Joe Edwin Griggs is incorrect. Mr. Griggs is not their child. The person that originally posted this errant information has disabled the message option on their F/A/G page, so I don't know how to contact them to get this corrected. Mr.Griggs died on the same day, Sep 14, 2014, lived in the same town, as Donald Eugene Elliott. Their obits were published in the same newspaper and their services directed by Waters Funeral Home in Vandalia. The original "poster" of this incorrect information obviously got the details mixed up. That's why such information should be left to family members to handle. Thanks for your attention to this. I appreciate all the work you've done in documenting
Marion County information. Carol Buckwalter Small

Hi!My name is Susan and I had put a request on findagrave for Leeta Fern Elliott Walker Begley. She is buried at Grand View Burial Park.
They said they could not find the stone.
I am in contact with someone who said that would were knowledgable about the cemetery and that I should ask you if there is a stone for her. Her second marriage was to Charley Wayne Begley.I just thought I would reach out to you and see if you can help me?
Any help would be appreciated.

|Tree Leaf||Thank you|
Quentin: thank you for all of your hard work at Find A Grave website. Many of us have benefited from it. You have always been very helpful, with photos, etc.
I have to say I agree with you about people not always being as diligent in their work as possible. I share your dislike of simply posting 'raw data' since that is not the purpose of the Biography section. I also agree that people should not post documents and certs here, for various reasons. That is what Ancestry.com is for. Also, sometimes the information on those certs is personal or delicate. The Biography section should be a freshly written biography.
I also agree with you about people not copying and pasting obituaries. For similar reasons to the ones you stated (the names and information of the living can be used for ID theft), and also, most do not provide copyright required information or follow the site's rules on that. They should provide the source, credit, and also should ask the newspaper first if they really want to be proper.
A lot of people also post the photo from the obituary and the page owner cannot remove that.
By the way I have seen your photos pop up on Ancestry.com lately. I do not know if you have given permission. I noticed the same ones doing that have also copied and pasted the biographies I've written, from this site to that one (without credit, of course.) I know they didn't ask me first.
I've tried to discuss these things with people on that site and others. They get extremely angry. Apparently, credit means nothing and other people's work is always presumed to be shared.
Yes of course we post things so that others can benefit but that's different than having our work lifted, and used in any old way.
People also should be open to correction, and at least look into it themselves. Many are not. Well, I just wanted to vent alongside you in case it helped you feel better. I did and do appreciate your diligence and sense of propriety. I hope in time you will return to the site.

|ken benner||Mamie Foor Tombstone|
Hello Quentin, I would like to ask you if you know who fixed Mamie Foor' tombstone in Midway Cemetery? When I was there the stone looked like the one you have taken, today Aug. 9th 2014 I was there and seen someone had undug the grave out of the ground in which it had sunk into. Whoever done it I want to thank them for doing that as I had sometime wanted to see what I could do to make it look better as it looked like it was broken and just placed on top of the ground, but now it looks like it was just sunk way down into the ground and they dug it out and replaced it like it should. Thanks Ken Benner
