Cemetery did not move
To: Find A
Yesterday, I went to look up and add family on Find A Grave, in Little Grove Cemetery in Walnut Hill, Jefferson County, Illinois. On find a grave, this cemetery has some how been newly removed, from Walnut Hill, Jefferson County, Illinois to Jefferson City, Jefferson County, Illinois. I have a lot of family buried in this cemetery and as of yesterday, it is still located where it has always been, in Walnut Hill, Jefferson County, Illinois.
I have been on Find A Grave for over 10 years, and this is ridiculous that this has happened. When I discovered this error, I checked with others that have family buried there and they checked it out also and everyone feels that there must be someone there changing things at the site itself for this to have happened.
Please check on this and get it straightened out. The changes that are going on at Find A Grave are not helping people, just confusing them.

Andrew J. Holloway

He has had a child added to his page that can't be his child because the child was born after the said father. Please delete that connection to Andrew. Thanks much
