Bio and Links
Bio Photo I no longer make changes, additions, transfers from messages left on my contributor page. Please follow FindAGrave procedures by using the Edit tab on the memorial page to request changes, additions, request transfers, etc.

Thank you for following FindAGrave procedures.

Contributor Connie posted this. I thought it was such a great idea I posted it to my page! Thanks, Connie!

Find a Grave has implemented a new way to submit Edits! Unfortunately, there are far too many members for Find a Grave to notify everyone via email, so it's up to us to get the word out. If every member posts this message (or similar) in their profile, hopefully we can help spread the word.

To suggest a correction (SAC) click on the edit tab of the memorial that needs to be corrected. Then click on the link which best describes where your edit should occur. Enter your correction, when you're done, click submit edit. Your request will be sent to the manager of the memorial and will appear in the managers' profile under the Edits tab.

Managers will no longer receive emails. They must go directly to their profile page and click on the Edits tab. Managers can approve, deny or ignore, suggested corrections. It's quick and easy!

The exception:
Requesting a transfer other corrections are still handled the same way. Click on "suggest any other correction or addition," type your message and press "send this message." The manager of the memorial will receive an email.


Please ask permission before posting my personal family photographs, photographs I have taken of grave stones or biographical material I have written from my memorial pages on this site to or any other website or personal webpages.

Please see FindAGrave Frequently Asked questions for more information:

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed information and photos for my memorials. I usually link to the individual contributor using HTML code. If this is unacceptable to you just let me know you prefer to remain anonymous.

RE: Fannie Ross Mendenhall
If you list with both nickname and given name, an individual is more likely to show up in searches. Most records will be listed under Frances. So when looking for Frances, it will show as no result. I understand your desire to respect the familial name, I just believe that providing the fullest names possible makes finding connections easier. If you were looking for a Maud, would you automatically think of looking for Matilda or Juergen for George? Or is it better to show one as the given name and other as a nickname?

Just my opinion, though I respect yours also.

RE: Betty Elaine Emmer Derby
Thank you for clarifying. In the bio on her memorial #59225335, was the marriage to Harold Emmer dated August 25, 1972 and the marriage to Harold James Emmer dated July 20, 1979 to the same person?

RE: James H. Norton
Thank you for taking the extra step in proving his birth place. I find that provides more information than Ancestry. Yes, I did check his WWI Draft Card, which confirmed his birth date. However, he did not list his place of birth. Yes, I know about Washington State's Digital Archives, and I like that site. I posted his mother's burial place on your site. I found her death record, which I posted on an edit tab for the find a grave contributor. This particular family, Irish immigrants, is but one of the very few in which I have actually found births of children. Again, thank you for the extra step. Another interesting aspect of your find a grave Norton is the fact that his children continually changed their birth names. Marie Ann Norton, who first married a Sheridan, used her correct birth name on her marriage record in Seattle, King County, W A. Shortly after their marriage, he died. After that, she used the name M. Marion, and after that, she used the name Marion. Her second marriage was to Harry Daniel Sloan, Sr. You will find her find a grave record in the same cemetery as her parents. Whoever reported her death, used an incorrect middle initial. Another Norton sister, Marie Florence married Frank Edward Gregory. On the marriage record, she uses her correct birth name, Marie Florence Norton. After that, she uses the name Florence Norton Gregory. Thus, the difficulties in these relationships. You will find her cemetery record in find a grave, in Sunset Hills Memorial Park, Bellevue, King County, WA, along with her husband, Frank Gregory, and a son, Norton.

Again, thanks for the extra steps taken.

My VC edits
You caught me! I usually run all the names in my Unknown VC once a month to see if any duplicate memorials have been established, but just didn't get it done and some changes were made. Again, I am grateful for all your efforts. It is appreciated.

This memorial isn't mine. The manager has been notified that the cemetery has no record of his burial.

RE: Thomas Randolph Bourne
I located his birth date in two sources. 1) World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-18; and 2) His original death certificate from the District of Columbia's Public Archives. I visited the Archives in 2004 and copied all the death certificates.

RE: James H. Norton
Source: "Massachusetts Births, 1841-1915, database with images. FamilySearch.
Reference ID 153
GS Film Number 1428076
Digital Folder Number 4212534
Image Number 552.

I used The information that I provided to you on his birth, and the names of his Irish parents were obtained from this record. I was unable to list the names of his parents, as the EDIT tab wants a find a grave memorial No. His parents were listed as Thomas J. Norton, occupation tanner, born County Mayo, Ireland. His mother's name was liste as Catharine Mccarty, born County Cork, Ireland. I will check to see if there is a find a grave memorial for his parents. I will also check to see if there is a WWI Draft Card for him, as he moved his family to Seattle, King Co., WA in 1910.
