Requests to other editors:

Please use the EDIT function on a specific memorial for ALL messages, requests, TRANSFERS, DUPLICATES, etc. concerning that memorial. Please don't use the message board below for such things pertaining to a specific memorial. Such messages take longer to process and may be overlooked.

All Messages and requests to me should be civil and polite. No sarcasm please!

Before starting a new cemetery: be sure to check to make sure the cemetery does not already exist.

Biographical information and obituaries should not be included in a virtual flower.


Think outside the box.

Please do not ask me to add unsubstantiated / unsourced claims that the person is related in some way to a famous person.

If you ask me to add info from the photo of a grave marker, especially an old one, please give me the exact dates, etc., that you want added, so that I am spared having to try to decipher the marker.

Transfer requests should be individual and specific and must be made by using the EDIT function on the memorial in question. If you are requesting a transfer based on relationship, please state that relationship. I am flexible on your connection to the person and will make transfers outside the guidelines at my discretion. I have been disappointed when I did make a transfer and the transferee did nothing to improve the memorial or even worse deletes what I have added.

Historian and genealogist.

I have been doing genealogy on both sides of the Atlantic for over 27 years. My work on Find A Grave is NOT a hobby, but a service to others.

I majored in history at Duke, did graduate work in history at the Univ. of South Carolina, graduated from the Univ. of Florida Law School and practiced law for 30 years, much of it in the land title industry. I have an EFM certificate from the School of Theology, University of the South.

Through my mother, I am a ninth generation member of the Weybright (sometimes spelled Waybright) Family in America, a member of the First Families of Ohio and a direct descendant of Capt. Martin Weybright III, of the Lancaster County (PA.) Militia. who is on the DAR patriots list and paradoxically was a member of the pacifist German Baptist Brethren (Church of the Brethren). His father, Martin II and grandparents, Martin I and Margaretha, had arrived in Philadelphia in 1730 from Germany aboard the ship Loyal Judith and settled in Lancaster.

My grandfather, W E Durr, M.D. practiced in Glencoe, Ohio, from after World War I until his death in 1947. In the course of his practice, he delivered many babies, including my mother and one of my brothers. I have over 1,300 of his Physician's Birth Records, but these are probably many more records that I do not have. I put these birth records into 4 spiral bound books and gave the original books to the Ohio Genealogical Society's Library in Mansfield, Ohio, gave one copy to the Genealogical Section of the Hutton Library in Barnesville, Ohio, and kept one copy for myself.

Through my great grandfather, Cornelius "Neal" Rice (1844-1933), I am a member of Civil War Families of Ohio. During Sherman's March to the Sea, he was captured at Irwin's Crossroads, Georgia, taken to the county jail in Sandersville and then to the county jail in Milledgeville, then the state capital of Georgia. He escaped from the jail and walked home to Greenville, Ohio.

Through my father, I am a first generation American and a dual citizen of the USA and the Republic of Ireland.

Names in my family tree are: Calvert, Varty, Moore, Durr. Rice, Burgan, Weybright or Waybright, Koontz, Fetter, Mehring and lots more.

Places in my tree are Stuart and Bradenton, Florida; Belmont, Darke, Miami, Montgomery, Holmes & Wayne counties, Ohio; Carroll County, Maryland; Lancaster, Somerset & Adams counties, Pennsylvania; Eastern Massachusetts; Counties Armagh, Antrim, Down, Dublin & Monaghan, Ireland; the West Riding of Yorkshire, England; Southern Germany, and more.

Denominations in my tree include Episcopal, Christian Science, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, Moravian, German Baptist Brethren (Church of the Brethren}, Roman Catholic, etc.

Places I've lived, worked or spent time in are Manatee, Alachua, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie & Indian River counties, Florida; Suffolk, Norfolk, Middlesex, Worcester & Plymouth counties, Massachusetts; Belmont, Darke, Montgomery & Erie counties, Ohio; Rutland County, Vermont; Chautauqua County, New York; Durham County, North Carolina; Richland & Sumter counties, South Carolina; Counties Armagh, Antrim, Down, Dublin & Monaghan, Ireland; London, England; etc.

Waybright / Weybright Family
I am Eugene David Waybright that started Genealogy several years ago that needs to contact Martin Weybright directly. My Digital Genealogy Records were destroyed by a Direct Lightning Strike that burned the Hardware and records. I was hoping that you might help me with a digital file to help me restart my records with FTM.

RE: Pitsenbarger family in Greenlawn, Darke County, OH
You're more than welcome! I've had the pictures for about 2 years & finally got them on my computer & into F.A.G. Planning on a trip to Versailles in Nov., I hope, to find some more ancestors' graves. Are you a descendent of the Pitsenbarger's or one of wife's? Terry

Upstairs Lounge fire
I saw your many memorials for the victims of this tragic fire. I don't know if you have been in contact with Dr. James Downs who co-authored an article in TIME last year about this tragedy.
Only recently have I learned how to ask for a memorial to be designated a cenotaph.
Have you considered creating the Upstairs Lounge Fire Memorial as a "new cemetery" on Find A Grave [FG] in New Orleans? I created a similar one for the site of a state historical marker in Texas for a 19th century shooting. Each memorial there has been designated as a cenotaph by FG. It did not affect the memorials for these two men at their respective cemeteries. I submitted a photo of the state marker as the "cemetery photo."
I think it would be great to have a cenotaph/memorial at the site of this fire so all their names are listed together. Does anyone have a good digital photo of this plaque?
Happy to answer any questions...

Hazel Gladys [Weybright] Seaman Fuller
Didn't know if you knew this, but Hazel's mother, Venona Ardel Strong Seaman's 6th great grandparents and Franklin D Roosevelt's 6th great grandparents are the same, Elder John Strong(1609-1699) & Abigail Ford Strong! These are also Princess Diana Spencer's 9th great grandparents. If you would like more information I would be glad to share it with you.

My memorial was created in 2005. There were several duplicates which I created in 2005 and which I have deleted because they were duplicated in 2007, but I do not think I want to delete this one. Thank you.
