I have loaded all of the stones at several cemeteries in Crawford County, Illinois, as of December 2013 they are: Ball, Beckwith, Davis-Brown, Lionberger, Prairie, Persinger, Prier, Randolph, and the Watts Cemeteries. I am working on loading all of Oblong and the Mound in Jasper County, Illinois.|
I think it is really inconsiderate of someone to duplicate a memorial when they know the other memorial was loaded first. Just because you are related or know a little more about this person. Remember someone took out time to put the memorial on here so be respectful of others. You know yours is a duplicate when you leave flowers on the others. Also if you see one of mine a duplicate on an earlier one, please do not hesitate to tell me so.
About four years ago I started doing my family tree, and I came across the Find A Grave site. Since I have been using it quite abit, I might as well contribute. I live in Robinson, Illinois so I can find just about any grave in Crawford County, if you know they are buried in this county I would be happy to take a shot for ya. If you want a transfer of any memorials I have loaded feel free to request, I will transfer for anyone.
Also the memorials I load I try and add as much information that I can find on that person. I am going back to some of the first ones I put on here and adding information. Some of my memorials there is nothing about the person I can find, so I load what I have. I do not put memorials on here to prevent family members from them. I usually load the ones I have no information on in hopes that some family member will find them. So anyone may request any of my memorials except my family, I will transfer for anyone. If you happen to see one of my memorials that I doubled on someone please let me know and I will delete it if I loaded mine after the other one. I just do this in my spare time because it helps others learn their family history.

Felicia, I really am not a crazy as this must seem. As I said the proper steps in Find A Grave and not real clear to me. I don't go there a lot any more.
I thought it was for people to post their families and help others. So in doing so at one point, I was what I took as being told off. So I just stopped going there. Well I thought I would try again. That is when I ask about Milton Walters.
When you answered, and I feel an apology is in order from me, as I did read it. And I do greatly appreciate the response. But for some reason I clicked on your name. I read you Bio. And I guess I had a flash back to the other person that didn't like me posting info on my family. I for some reason took your second par. as being meant to me as the other person said to me, don't post anything if someone has already posted on them. I don't get it, if I have info that would help others if they were looking for my family, why not share what I have? It's not saying the person that posted some was wrong, just adding to that info. So once again I apologize for jumping the gun. And not reading and letting it soak in more before responding. I don't in any way being told I did something wrong if it is said in a helpful manner. I don't feel the other person meant it in that way. Will be more careful in the future. Again thank you for the information.

Okay, I hope this comes off the way I mean it to. I am really fairly new to this. I am not sure of how Find A Grave fully works. So I only post things that I know for sure about my family. I have no intention of stepping on any ones toes. I will NOT post on anyone but MY OWN family.
So now my question is...was paragraph 2 meant for me? I don't recall posting anything on one of your posts. I have friends that have left Find A Grave because they said people get mad so easy. Gosh, I am just trying to learn how this works. And I would hope that people would be willing to teach/help each other rather than getting upset before understanding what the other person was trying to do.
I would think that sharing more information would be appreciated.
Any time someones helps me with someone/something I am looking for I am very grateful, and I hope I can return the favor. Even though I am not real good yet.

I am looking for my great grandmothers parents. Her name was Josephine Walters. Her dad was Milton Walters and her mother was Martha Shaw Walters. Can you tell me if this is maybe her brother? As she was born in 1857. they were from Robinson, Crawford County, Ill.

Hello Felicia, thank you for your inquiry. You certainly have my permission to use the photo of Mary's memorial stone at VanFossen Cemetery in Bennington Twp., Licking Co., Ohio. I took those photos almost 14 years ago. I have the entire cemetery transcribed and photographed, if you would like to see it, here's the url:
If this url wraps to second line, be sure to copy all of it, kinda long. I maintain the state of Ohio for the GenWeb Ohio Tombstone Photo project.
Kindest regards. Robert Sizelove
