"This is the heritage of our country," "These stones -- they're not high-ranking officials or generals -- these are the enlisted men who fought the battles. These guys didn't write history, they made it, and we're trying to tell their story. –Sam Ricks|
Like a lot of members I started with FindaGrave looking for my ancestors to preserve memories for future generations. I cannot begin to tell you how Thankful I am for all the wonderful people that went out of their way to help me in fulfilling my quest. So I wanted to pay it forward and I found the best way I could do that is to work with veterans and their families. They have sacrificed so much to preserve our freedom and as a spouse of a NAVY veteran this is the least I could do. Since then I have been working with a wonderful group of volunteers adding and editing veteran memorials to the National Cemeteries.
Currently I am working on Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery checking and cross checking every name for errors and or duplicates and sending requests for corrections when needed.
Find a Grave guidelines clearly states a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location and the final disposition should be determined and updated within 30 days. Based on these guidelines please do not put your unknown burial into a cemetery where a known burial has already been placed and state that, that contributor needs to delete their memorial because they made the duplicate. Sorry yours is the duplicate and needs to be deleted.
I have had many contributors asking to have the same memorial transferred to them. We cannot please everyone so I am only adhering to the four generation rule (siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren). As the guidelines state the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it. A wonderful way to gather all your ancestors together and achieve that goal is by setting up a virtual cemetery.
I would like to give a SINCERE "Thank You" to all the contributors and photographers for all that you have done for me and for FindaGrave. It really means a lot.

Thanks for adding the info, Cindy.
I have known Ms Dodd's daughter for many years and attended Ms. Dodd's funeral. I ran across her funeral program and thought to share, so you can be assured the details are correct.
Have a great day!

This site: Elizabeth H. Jeffries came up as the wife of Mosby Childers, VA,OH,IN. Is there any proof? I have Elizabeth Jeffries born circa 1756 died circa 1821 being carried by her son in a wagon from Ohio to Alderson, Virginia. Please let me know how this site is associated. Thanks, Barb Couts Evans
|Sharon Withrow||Maysel Narine Kendall Jarvis|
Maysel #103071781 was my great aunt and I was wondering if you could link her to her parents Francis Lee Kendall #41376892 and Bertha Olive Kendall #89088362. Her 14 other brothers and sisters are already on there. Her twin sister was Macie Kendall the last one to pass on just recently. If you could get a photo of her stone, that would be great too. Thank you.
