I'm in the process of researching my memorials. I try to get documentation for all the information I place on each memorial.
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for misinformation placed on the memorials I manage via "edits". I've tried to keep up and cannot. It's too time consuming trying to verify each edit.

Do not use my pictures without my permission. I will not give permission for them to be used on Ancestry dot com. You may not agree with this policy but it is mine to make.

Many thanks to all who have helped me with my memorials. A very big thank you to Find A Grave for this outstanding web site.

RE: Velton Haskins

I would need your email address to be able to send the .pdf file, as I can't attach such a file in this reply, so instead, I have saved it as a .jpeg file (picture) and added it to Mr. Haskin's memorial as a photo. Just drop me a line if/when you want me to delete the photo from the memorial and I'll gladly remove it.

Thanks for making the requested edits!

Best regards,

I am so amazed at the memorial you have set up for Mr. Adams. I have just started researching the Adams name for a friend of mine and was shocked to find such a detailed memorial. Bless you for doing this. Are you related to the Adams line in some way? Just curious. Thanks so much!!!

RE: Robert Daniel Love
Here's some of the story from what I can gather from relatives. Uncle Bert died all alone, no family or friends. Some people near him thought he had no relatives and tried to claim his home and possessions. Somehow, someway the authorities found a letter in his home from his sister, Nancy (Love) Pearson. They notified her. Nancy and other members of the family rushed down to Springfield from Greene Co., IN. In the house they found the place turned upside down, apparently some things were stolen and they found blood stains on furniture. They had the theory that Uncle Bert was murdered. However the perpetrators were never charged. From what I can gather Walter V. Love did not go there. Walter was living in Washington DC at the time.
My theory is, the perpetrators had one of them claim to be Walter V. Love and fudge the DC.That would show a bogus link to next of kin. Whatever happened their plot did not pan out. I say the DC here is purely bogus. If someone wanted to do some work I bet they could find a copy of a newspaper clipping on the story in the library.

Thank you very much for the photos of my great-grandparent's headstones. I'm working on my Mayflower Society application and among many sources I have to provide are gravestone photos. Orlando, by the way, was a Rough Rider with Teddy Roosevelt. Thank you for being a volunteer with findagrave - what a wonderful thing to do.

Masters family
i just wanted to thank you for all the work you have put into Find A Grave and for all of the family members of mine that you have found and created. Isiah Masters was my great grandfather and I used to hear stories galore about him. I knew he was the one that had lost his arm in the Civil grandmother said it was at Gettysburg....was never certain, but was very happy to see you have it on his memorial. Plus all of the others....thank you so very much!
