Bio and Links
Bio Photo Due to spam issues, removed e-mail from being visible. If you need to contact me and don't have my e-mail, please post on my wall.Most memorials I add have been verified by viewing the grave, seeing a photo of the headstone (with GPS if GPS was attached to the photo) or by verifying with several independent sources to document cemetery location. Clarification. The below was added after numerous comments in various groups by people who don't understand U.S. copyright law. I am not a copyright attorney, but have consulted with copyright legal experts and the U.S. Copyright Office on copyright law on copyright issues for other purposes. The new agreement with Ancestry does not allow people to post photos from this website to Ancestry without first getting permission. Both sites make it very clear the copyright holder retains copyright and you need his/her permission to use any photo. Under U.S. copyright law, photos taken after 1977 are covered by copyright without the need to register it, use the (c), circled c, copyright, or any other notice. Using someone else's photo with citation is not a substitution for needing permission. I personally photographed over 95% of the photos I have uploaded, and have permission from the copyright holders for the remaining ones. Some of them have asked me to not to list their names after they were hassled by some people because they would not allow the photos to be used on other sites, especially paid sites like If you wish to use any of the photos on other websites (including Family Search, and any of its affiliates, etc.), contact me and I will let you know if the photo can be used. If a photo request asked for permission to be used elsewhere and I filled it, the original requester or his/her heirs has permission to use the photo(s) in line with what was listed in their photo request. I will consider OOG (out of guideline) transfers on an individual basis as long as the memorial isn't for a person related to me, but please state the nature of the relationship (family, close friend, etc.). I don't do bulk transfers. I reserve the right to not transfer OOG in certain situations. I always do a detailed multi-stage search before, and immediately after, adding a new Memorial to avoid creating a duplicate Memorial. However, on rare occasions, an existing name doesn't show up in a search. If that happens, please let me know and I will remove the duplicate Memorial I added. However, if I added the Memorial first, mine is not the duplicate. Part of this approach includes making sure they are added to the correct cemetery. This includes comparing cemetery records when available to other records, checking obits and death certificates, looking at photos that were taken with GPS-enabled devices, etc. Again, sometimes the research doesn't indicate when a person has been moved from Cemetery A to Cemetery B, or that Cemetery A was later acquired by Cemetery B. I won't add someone based solely on obit or death certificate information as the information may be incorrect. Update 2: With the new SAC/Edit system, we won't be seeing as many e-mails, but I do check e-mail because some will still come through e-mail and I check the Edits tab on a regular basis.I try to get to SAC/Edit requests as soon as I see them. If I haven't gotten to your request within a week, please feel free to post a message on my wall with the ID of the Memorial. I check my Spam folder on a regular basis, but I get enough e-mail that a request can occasionally fall through the cracks. The nature of the Edit/SAC will determine how I handle it. Looking for a variety of names spread mostly across the eastern half of the U.S.Honoring the memory of my Dad who was in the Air Force, my brother who served in the Marines and Army, and for the many relatives who have served in the military over the years.Updated 09 February 2016, still alive and kicking.

I transferred this memorial to you. I don't live in the area and would rather transfer this to you as a relative. Please let me know what else I can do to help you. Patrick Patterson

I photographed her grave and created a memorial in 2013. I received a message from her 2nd cousin that someone had created a duplicate memorial with the name of her second husband, Ellis. Your memorial was created in 2016. evidently from her obituary. Please check Memorial @108407090. I believe this is the same person as 150201946.

Joseph Hosea Kring
I think that I have found your missing Hosea Kring. I have created his memorial today, #168830988, thanks to his Indiana Death Certificate. He was once married to my great grandmother's oldest sister, Mary Emma Chance, from about 1933 to before 1940. If you have access to Ancestry, you can check out my info for him under "My Scott Family Tree". I have him listed as Joseph James Hosea Kring.

Let me know if you think that I am barking up the right tree or not. :) Susan

Lennis Jeffries
Everyone else in the cemetery spells it Jeffries, so I'll leave it for now. You can enter a Photo Request and maybe someone will get a picture that will show how it's spelled on the stone.

Rita Osborne (#47817349).
Good afternoon FortheKing,

I hope you might assist me with contacting your friend Rita Osborne (#47817349). I send her 2 requests for transfer of memorial for my husband's grandma, but I haven't heard back from her. There are total of 5 family members at Rose Hills Memorial Park and I would like to have Phyllis Anderson's memorial to join memorials of her parents, sister and husband.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

Best regards,

Thank you very much for the information. I will write to the cemetery to see what else might be on his burial record.

I appreciate you taking the time.
