Bio Photo Transfers under the following guideline. I've learned a long time ago you can't please everyone and I'm not going to try. For you who like to break the rules, don't waste your or mine time. If your request is outside my guidelines, I will ignore and delate your request.


Generation 1: your family -- Husband - wife - your children - son-in laws - daughter-in-laws - grandchildren.

Generation 2: your and spouse parents -- Father - Mother - aunts - uncles - 1st cousins - wives and hubands of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Generation 3: Grandparents - their siblings and their children -- huband and wife of siblings and children.

Generation 4: Great Gradparents - their siblings and their children - huband and wife of siblings and children.

NO transfers beyond the great-grandparents and NO transfers of Revolution Soliders or Civil War Soliders or Sailors.

This is a MUST!!! You have to tell me your RELATIONSHIP to the person you want transfered and PROVE if I shoud ask FOR proof. No transfer.

Don't waste my time with: I went school with...I do research for another person would you consider transfering...they were neighbors to my grandparents...I work with this person...they were my neighbors when I was a kid...just this once would consider breaking the rules...ect. ect. ect. If you are not related, forget it. My transfers go to family members who fall within the guide lines.

For you who think there should be no rules and should transfer every request that comes down the pipe, take it up with Find A Grave. They're the ones who set the rules. How many of you knows that a contributor does not have to do corrections or transfers. How many of you knows that Find A Grave have a Right to Privacy Act?

All a contributor has to do is to invoke this privacy act and the contributor will no longer receive any corrections or transfers e-mails. Find A Grave DOSE NOT demand corrections or tranfers be done. They ask contributors to consider doing them to improve memorials and provided more information for researchers.

CORRECTIONS: For you impatient persons who believe your request should be answered in a 24 hours period of time. Get Real! I may have 30 or 40 other requests before yours comes in. I do answered all corrections but it might take several day or weeks. I don't spent 24-7 at the computer. I know this is hard for you to believe but I do have a life outside the computer. I do have family and friends I spent time with, I have a part time job, yard ward, house keeping, grocery shopping, library research, visiting cemeteries for tombstones to photograph, searching cemeteries for requested tombstones and other chores that has to be do.

MY PERSONAL GOAL: My reason for joining Find A Grave is to presrve graves and their tombstones. That's where the bulk of my time on the computer goes, adding people and their tombstones. Corrections and tranfers are done when I can find extra time in the day. So if it takes me one or two months to answering your requests, so be it. Don't give me any guff, that if I can't keep up with the requests, I should transfer the memorials to someone who can. Get Real!! It won't happen!

This a long obituary he is a relative of mine by marriage.

Obituary North Vernon Sun

Rev. William H. Lawrence was born near New Washington, Clark County, Ind., May 17, 1821 and answered the summons of death at 10:30, Jan. 25th 1897, being 75 years, 8 months and 8 days of age. His father John Lawrence, was born in the state of South Carolina in 1795, and after his marriage, located in Clark County, Ind., where his son William H. Lawrence, or Henry, as he was called, was born. In 1822 his father, located on a farm about one and one-half miles south-east of Lovett station. Henry was the second child, Jesse being the older, he had one younger brother, Benjamin and eight sisters, who were all born after he located near what is now Lovett station. In the winter of 1839 he was chosen to teach school in a small log school house, which was located on the farm now owned by Z. T. Denslow, J. P., who was one of his pupils. At the age of 19 he joined the Mount Mariah, Baptist Church, Elder Thomas Hill being pastor at that time. Elders Stott and Cox also had charge of this church for a number of years as did also Elder Swincher, all of whom have long since answered the same summons that called from earth to heaven them and him, who like they conscientiously and zealously did all he could to call men to repentance and to point out to men and women the narrow and straight path that leads to everlasting life. His brother Jesse was living near Freedom Church, south of Vernon, during the Cholera scourge in 1849 and they administered to the wants of many colored victims of that dreaded disease, laying their bodies to rest with tears and prayers when others refused to perform so hazardous a risk. For a number of years he was the regular pastor of a number of churches in this and adjoining counties. In 1850 he was married to Luvina Lewis, daughter of Daniel Lewis and to them were born six children, two boys and four girls, five of whom survive to mourn the loss of a loving kind and indulgent father and who, except one were present to drop a tear of sorrow over the grave of one who had done so much in their behalf. His wife Luvina, dropped dead on the 4th of August 1879, under the same roof where he received his last summons. In 1880 he married Mrs. Mary J. Corya, widow of John W. Corya, having two children, George and William, at the time of her marriage to Mr. Lawrence. He gave to her children the same fatherly care as he did to his own. They as long as life lasts will keep green his memory and many kind acts toward them. No person was ever turned away without food or shelter who called upon him. In 1866 he became the owner of what was called the Jas. Harmon farm, about one mile east of the present station of Commiskey, where he has ever since resided. In 1877 through his personal means and efforts he witnessed the completion of the Commiskey Baptist Church. After his marriage with Mrs. Corya, they united with this church, where he remained a faithful member to the time of his death. For twenty-five years he has been a patient sufferer with asthma or hay-fever. While in the midst of pain he would say if it is the Lord's will I am prepared to meet my God. His last moments in life were calm and peaceful, dying without a struggle. After death his countenance shined forth as in life, the general expression that he is resting as though in sleep. In the death of Mr. Lawrence the county has lost one of her best citizens; his neighbors and acquaintances and honored, faithful and consistent friend, his children a indulgent, loving and Christian father, his wife a dutiful, affectionate and kind husband, and the church a zealous advocate of the cause which has been the hope of millions who have, like he, passed over the river of life and will continue to be the steadfast hope and anchor of millions of men and women yet unborn. His life has been one that will live after him, and thousands of men and women now living, who knew him will drop a silent tear and offer up a silent prayer that their ending may be founded upon the same safe and sure foundation that was his aim and hope in life, anchor and solace when his spirit was taking its flight from the tenement of clay to take on life everlasting. Rest in peace.

Inscription on tombstone;

"Born in Clark County, Indiana. He has preached the word of God to sinful men many years, near where his mortal remains now rest. Father, it is the prayer of your children who mark your resting place that their lives be as pure and there deeds as good as yours"

This person's age does not add up to the parents; unless he is a grandchild; Elizabeth would of been near 70 at his birth.

I have a son Michael s/o Francis & Elizabeth born 28 Jul 1786 - 23 Oct 1851

This Michael could be a son of Edward & Ruth Morris Pace

Which would make him a grandson of Francis & Elizabeth Robinson Pace
