PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction link to add/correct information. I try to get to them within 24 hours of receipt. |
PLEASE use the Edit tab and Suggest a Correction to request a transfer. Please include your relationship. I will not transfer out of guidelines. Please spare me the "I am the family genealogist" and the "I have tons of information to add" stories. Use the edit system. Too many people have requested out-of-guidelines transfers and then never added so much as a comma to the memorial. Requests for bulk transfers will be summarily ignored.
I WILL NOT link to a "burial unknown". This IS a grave registration site.
If I do not maintain the memorial, but add a picture, PLEASE check the photo caption for the inscription.
My love of old cemeteries is genetic from my dad. I try to take pictures of the fallen/damaged markers first as they might end up "behind the shed" or "over the wall" by the next time I get there.
Sources for additional memorial information include:

I can't thank you enough for your very prompt correction of the gender of Zelepohad Farr!
Find a Grave website is very valuable and what a great service it is!

I tried to edit, but for some reason, the edit was not able to be sent.
Please look at enlarged photo on Find a Grave Memorial Find A Grave Memorial# 55410330 and see that etched in stone is clearly the words "Son of....", even though whoever entered this "Find a Grave" erroneously wrote that is says, Dau of…." --Not so! This is easily verifiable by looking more closely.
Please look at HIS birth, death, and Cummington MA vital records attached below to see that he was indeed Male:

Zelophehad Farr is named after a man in the Bible.
The name Zelophehad ("Zelphed") comes from the Bible, Numbers Chapter 27, wherein the daughters of Zelophehad petitioned Moses to allow them inheritance of their father's lands since Zelophehad had no sons. Moses asked the Lord, who said, "Yes."

Good evening. I see that you have the memorial for this person and was wondering if you could answer a few questions. If there is no memorial left, how did you come across this person? This is my 5th gr grandfather and was just wondering about it.
|pmm||Burnells in Center Cemetery|
May I please use your photos on my Ancestry.com tree and in my small family history blog, HeritageRamblings.net? I will be happy to attribute to you and/or Find A Grave- just let me know.
Thank you for all you have done for families through Find A Grave.
