Bio and Links
Please be aware that Find-a-Grave is not my full-time occupation. I am not retired but am a working professional whose work and other obligations can demand a great deal of time. I work with F-A-G whenever I have time available to do so. What this means is that sometimes many weeks or months can go by before I can make updates or transfers for individuals. If you leave me updates or transfer requests, please be patient. They will not be discarded or ignored but will remain in my inbox, and they will be processed as I have a chance and from oldest to newest.

RE: Lafayette Thomas actual burial
I am so sorry. His F-A-G # is 46287785. You are correct that he is not buried with his 1st wife. He was born in W. Va. 28 Jun 1872 and died in Belmont County, Ohio on 8 Oct. 1947. His 2nd wife was Mary "Alice" Renner (my great Aunt). They were married 13 Sept 1908. Her F-A-G # is 46287667. His 3rd wife was Lacy as you have noted. I am unsure of her burial (I have not investigated her). On Lafayette Thomas's Death Certificate it states he is buried in Union Cemetery in St. Clairsville, Ohio. Near as I can gather, there are 4 cemeteries with the name of Union Cemetery in that town so it is hard to say which of these he is buried in. But at least we have the town and state. Perhaps this is clearer. I have also sent some edits to F-a-G about Alice and her dates and parents. I appreciate all you do for F-A-G. I live in NC so am unable to travel to these cemeteries to take pics etc. It is a blessing as every piece of info is priceless. If you need any other info, please msg me. Thanks

Lafayette Thomas actual burial
I have info from his death certificate as to the location of his actual burial. Perhaps you could update the info. Per his D.C. He died on Oct 8, 1947 in St. Clairsville, Belmont Co., Ohio and was buried in Union Cemetery in the same on Oct 10, 1947. Unfortunately there are supposedly 4 Union Cemeteries in that town and there is no photo of the grave that I am aware of. Perhaps you can update his info on the site as you are correct that he was never buried with his 1st wife in Monongalia Co., WV.. His D.C. can be found on the Family Search website. It is most easily found by his parents names, Josiah Thomas and Mollie Vanhorn. Thank you for your consideration in this matter. Best regards, Paula

Corbly/Carl Spragg, Oakmont Cemetery
My bad. I set this up under the name of Corbly, but the obit is for Carl. Since there is no Carl Corbly on the headstone it would be easier, I think, to remove the photo until I can find Corbly's obit and make a new memorial for him.

FAG 32547790 in Whiteley Chapel Cemetery
Can you please locate your photo of the stone in Find A Grave memorial 32547790 (James Kirby) and transcribe the inscription into his Find A Grave memorial. I cannot enlarge it enough to read on my computer or I would do it. I have also sent an SAC with this request to the memorial manager. There is important information on the stone which is in danger of being lost to weathering, as has already happened with other stones in this cemetery. I am a distant relative in the Kirby line who lives about 185 miles away from this grave. Thank you very much for your help.

Mary Reagan, #72167382
Thank you very much for the Jensen family transfers.
I am transferring back Mary Reagan as per your request.
I am just getting started on Findagrave and there will be more requests for transfers or edits in the future. As you may know the Estle (Estel) family is my main family interest and the Blaker family and the Hathaway families and others are families that I have been working on. I want to connect as many families as I can and provide obituaries for them also or any information that can be helpful to others in their ancestry search.

Infant Cook @ 155797943
Would you please load the memorial marker photograph located at 67361015 Minnie Florence (nee: Cook) Scott to the unnamed infant's memorial at 155797943 Infant Cook. Thank you for your time and all you do at Find A Grave. Your work has helped me many times as I continue my genealogical research.
Cordially,
Pam

John Morgan Harris, Greene County Memorial Park
First, thanks for posting the photo of John'n marker. I'm grateful, always, for your help.

Second I am blocked from adding a bio paragraph and when I try to use the edit function to do so I get a message about completing the "Captcha."

I can find no such page or item, and my requests for the right way to complete the Captcha have gone unanswered, so I may be being punished for adding obits to findagrave memorials. Don't know, but wonder if you have had a similar experience?

Mabel and Carlos Jones
Thank you so much for finding my great aunt Mabel and her husband Carlos Jones grave markers! I have been waiting in hopes that they could be found one day. Can you possibly tell me the area in which these two graves are located?

I am working on my genealogy and membership to the DAR. My last link is my 4th great grandfather Ambrose Emery. Could you please tell me where you obtained the information for this article. I am trying to prove that Jesse Emery is Ambrose Emery's son.
Thanks

David C. Whipkey
Hello, Thank you for your posting of the Whipkey memorials on FindaGrave. Can you tell me the name and location of the beautiful country church on the David C. Whipkey memorial?

My G.G.Grandfather was David Martin Whipkey. I believe he was born in Greene County. I believe both his father and grandfather were also named David. There seem to be several David Whipkeys in that area and I am having difficulty sorting them out. Any information you could give me would be appreciated.
