Bio and Links
Bio Photo I developed taphophilia in Nov 2007. I'm adding what I can, photos and accurate transcriptions, because stones deteriorate and there's no better time than now.

On a philosophical note: I believe that an unmarried woman's surname should never be listed in the "maiden name" field, and a divorced woman who returned to her maiden name should also have that name as her surname.

"Whacker" and "Pug"
Chris West, "Whacker" and "Pug"
are/were the nick-names the
Funderburk boys went buy in Life.
So the 'names' were added to the
mix to note everything I could on
My late Brother-In-Law(Tommy)
and his brother.

Edit Help
Keep them coming. I acquired a lot of my cache from the admins. I try to accept the edits the same day. Some of the data entry was not so great. Excelsior!

Hi Chris
Thank you for the edits you sent. I made some of the changes myself and others were made by acceptng your edits. Many of those maiden names were entered with parenthesis during my first couple of years on Find A Grave. I didn't know any better or the maiden name space was not there at the time. Not sure which.

I don't know if this is of any help or not. Find a Grave sometimes combine two cemeteries that really are the same one but with different names or variations in spelling.

When they do this BOTH photographs from each memorial show up on the final memorial. I have had me can chewed for adding MY photo to a memorial that already had one.

There are other problems that can show up when this combining happens.

No quotes and no maiden names

I did not add quotes nor did I give men relatives maiden nicknames.

By the volume of remarks shown here regarding the above it would appear there is a findagrave technical glitch. It might serve you and contributors well if the problem were corrected at the source.

Hi Chris,

I did not have any of these nicknames in the maiden name, I don't know how they got there. I think they are all ok now. Thank for your concern and pointing this out to me. I think I'll have to check my memorials and see how often that happened.

Thanks again

RE: Nicknames
I posted that almost 6 years ago - It all ends up in the same spot on the memorial. I knew "Joey" all the time I was in Prospect. He was a wonderful person and brought joy to many people. a
