To keep weeds out of the beautiful Find A Grave garden....

First, I don't link to Burial Unknown Site Memorials as BU shouldn't be on FAG according to the guidelines of the website. Do not request relationship edits to a BU as it will be refused. The first criteria for making a memorial on FAG is having the burial site, as this is a grave registration site. When you made a BU, you have a chance of losing the memorial to the member who "Find A Grave" in the cemetery.

Second, I may or may not transfer outside of the guidelines to an established member. It is my choice. Long-time hard working-members, who are busy in surveying cemeteries and taking grave photos impress me more than someone who is collecting others' memorials for their personal goal or waiting for someone to find the burial sites for their numerous memorials made with an "unknown burial site".

Lastly, there are no duplicated memorials on FAG. If I find a duplicated memorial while researching this site, there is 99% chance that it will be deleted or merged eventually.

You may disagree with the guidelines but remember the guy who started Find A Grave wrote them. He is the boss.

Many of the memorials transferred to me were done without my request for them. These memorials have found a home and will be nurtured.

Also, thank you for all the flowers and tokens left on my family's memorial. They are all sincerely appreciated by me and my family.

Duplicate Memorials
I set them up in the correct Cemetery. I took the pictures of the whole Cemetery.

RE: Marker transcriptions
Sorry, one more message (I hate Findagrave's message system, I can't see your message while I answer). I just received a response on the problem with photos uploading wrong and it is a software problem on their end.

RE: Marker transcriptions
Oh and yes I did take an overview photo of the cemetery, although it was difficult to get a picture of it with all the headstones because they are scattered out in the woods. I am waiting for the acceptance of the photo and the info I submitted about the clean up and the general condition of the cemetery as well as the information that the property is on private land and not accessible from public property or roads. I can't remember what I submitted with that photo this morning and I can't re-read it until findagrave approves it.

RE: Marker transcriptions
Thank you for the edit information, I will check into that and get those entered correctly. I also contacted and asked them to fix the rotation on these earlier as well. Thankfully this is a small cemetery, and this is the only one I worked on today so they shouldnt have a problem finding them and getting them taken care of.

RE: Zinc Cemetery
Thanks for all you do. The markers can not be seen from the road. the small cemetery is way back into the property and only accessible by hiking. I'm not sure about Arkansas law and accessing family burial places. I hope we have that right. This cemetery does not at this point that I am aware, have any of my family. So at this point I am just glad to get the information I was able to get so that they can be found online. Maybe someone who does have family will want to see if they can work with the landowner or go through any legal measures, thankfully I don't have any family burial plots that I can't access yet.

RE: Zinc Cemetery
Linda, I just spoke to my husband and the landowner told him he will not allow access to the cemetery. He said he used to keep the cemetery cleaned and he allowed access to it and he said people would come to his house all hours of the day and then people started expecting wheelchair access and complaining that there was no trail to it, so after all that he refuses access...I don't blame him but it is sad that a few ruined it for the rest of us.

RE: Zinc Cemetery
Also, we really didn't get to "clean" the cemetery much. My husband stumbled across it when pushing a tree down which nearly uprooted a headstone-which is when he stopped and left the tree as to not disturb the stone further. We searched and I photographed every stone that we could find. My husband while still harvesting timber nearby was going to try to spend a little time clearing the cemetery area of some of the trees and possibly mark the corners of it but I am not sure if he was able to get that done. If you want, I can ask my husband to ask Bob if we can work on the cemetery some more, even after the timber harvest is complete. And if he will let us, I would be happy to introduce you to Bob and show you the cemetery. I hate to see the cemetery become lost to us, but access may be denied or limited.

RE: Zinc Cemetery
It is located within private property (about a 10-15 minute hike from the road), but there is no road to it. You can enter the following gps into the google search and the map will show you where it is and the closest roads. GPS 36.279239,-92.906204
Because the cemetery is so isolated in this little community, I could not get my internet to connect to give exact gps at the cemetery, but the gps given above will take you close enough that you will see the headstones. They are in an area that is overgrown with trees and deep layers of leaves. I only had brief access to it while my husband harvested the timber for the owner. The property owner is an older-grey bearded man named Bob (I will have to ask my husband when he gets home what his last name is) and he lives at the very end of Broadway street and his house is next to the small lake on the map. He is very nice, but may be hesitant to allow people on his property to access the cemetery. I would suggest getting to know him a little before asking to go in there.

RE: Thanks for the photo
Your welcome! I have more to add to the cemetery, so there may be more that you needed that I have yet to add
