Bio and Links
Bio Photo I will be away from Find a Grave from May 3 until May 10. I will do updates asap.

Please read the Find a Grave Rules

Submitting Information / Creating Memorials

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
Please do NOT add newspaper article or obituary scans. The photo section is reserved for headstone/grave photos and possibly a portrait photo of the person, if that photo is owned by you. Do not copy and post photographs from obituary or funeral home websites (unless you personally are the photographer), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave as the newspaper company owns that copyright. Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed. [Top]

This is what Find a Grave says about adding obits and pictures not me.

Just because you tell where you got the obituary and funeral picture does not keep you from being sued for breaking the copyright law. You have to have the permission of everyone listed in the obituary and the one that took the picture. Accounts are closed for doing this. Go back and read the rules, it is on the contributor page under the frequently asked questions.

I walk the Cemeteries and take the photographs of the memorials I put on Find a Grave. I do not set at the computer and put memorials on in another state that I have no intention of putting a photograph on with it. I do not do this for the numbers, I do it to help others.

I will not link to a unknown burial or a unknown cemetery. Go to the Q and A and read for yourself.

I have spent months deleting obituaries and pictures from my memorials. If you find one please let me know about it so I can delete the obit or picture. FAG does not want Obits or pictures due to the Copyright law. I do not want my account closed from breaking their rules. You can read that for yourself in the Q and A on your contributors page.


I believe in God, Family and Country. If this offends you, I am sorry. This is a short bio of me.

God Bless you and
God Bless the United States of America

Robert Riley
Anita: IT's me again. I have been working on Robert since in Arra Helen Riley Suitherland Findagrave #13610299 it says she has a brother Robert Riley, Washington, D.C. (It was not Wasshington D.C. it was Washington state). I am pretty sure he didn't die in 1887. I found him in 1900 in Washington Lewis County age 476 born April 1853 in KY with wife Lillian and four children. Then I found him in 1910 In Washington Pierce County age 56 with wife Alice and two children. then in 1920 in Washington Pierce county age 66 with wife Laura and three children. In 1930 in Fresno County Calif age 77 living with his son Robert M. Riley. In findagrave I have found William Pierce Riley #147538062 the son in 1900 census. I found wife Lillian Mason in findagrave #20863730 in Lewis County Washington
State, his first wife. I have also found his death date as Feb. 13, 1839 in Fresno California. I have written to the California State Library for either a death certificate or obituary that will tell where he is buried. Will let you know what I find.

Anita: I have been working this morning and had more luck. I was looking for Marie E. {Lizzie} Riley found her ion 1870 and 1880 in Ohio with parents. Then in 1900 in Bosque Co TX with Husband John this census gives her birth and March 1860. If you look at Heritage Quest for the 1900 she is listed as Lizzie Benton but below that it says Mariah Eliza "Lizzie" Riley Benton, I don't now where they got that. She was married ca 1882 but I never did locate that.I found her as Lizzie Benton buried in Hamilton County TX findagrave # 36252703. I have asked Ken Jones to add her correct name and link her with her husband. then I found Fannie Brown Mary F. Riley born 1868 in the 1900 Daviess County Census Albert Brown, she is listed there as Fannie, then I found Albert in 1910 Clay Co AR with wife listed ad Mary F. 43 born in KY, then I found them in 1930 Craighead Ark she is listed as Fannie again. Finally I found their marriage in Overton County Tennessee Albert Brown to M Lewis on July 10, 1888. I never did locate Fannie in findagrave, she probably is buried in Craighead Arkansas. I don't think I told you before I looked at the census for Benjamin and Maria Riley and from all of the census I have 13 children for them.

Arra Helen Riley Sutherland
Anita:I have been working on your Riley family for my cousin. I found Arrh, born 1857 in Ohio County, the daughter of Benjamin findagrave #13610299. In her biography it listed her children and sisters. The ones that I had not located were Fanny Brown Jonesboro, Ark and Lizzie Benton, Texas.I found the fannie Brown in the 1940 census of Jonesboro Craighead County Ark, she was a widow and I have not been able to find her husband. I did find her again in the 1930 Daviess county Census but still a widow. I thought she might be the sister that I had listed as Mary F. Riley born 1868. I found a Lizzie Benton in Hamilton County Texas fiandagraave # 36252703, but I am not sure if this might be the sister that I have listed as Maria E. Riley born 1860? In the biography for Arra it also listed her brother Robert Riley in Washington D.C. and I have her brother Robert as having died in 1887. I thought this might help you with your research.

Is there any way you can double check the dates for this memorial #141910996 at Mount Vernon in McLean Co., KY. You have built this memorial with dates 1840-1913. I had also built a memorial at Mount Vernon in Butler Co., KY but mine is obviously at the wrong cemetery because my James' wife was Holland. The thing is, I have a KY death certificate for a James EVANS born 1843 died 19 Sep 1914 in McLean Co., KY. No wife listed. Trying to confirm that your memorial is the right one and my death certificate is the wrong one. Did the cemetery book only give years? Is his wife Holland buried there too? Any information would be a huge help. Thanks for your time.

Hold off on the transfers for now. I think you do have a few that I may want but can't recall right now of who it is, i'll have to look again. It's no big deal, I don't really need any other ones to replace the ones that I transferred but if I find some I'll let you know.

There are two Harralson's that I have that I will need to transfer to someone else that is also related to this family, however I will transfer these two to the one that is the closest related and they are Jesse A. Harralson and his wife Mercenia Travis Harralson.

I sent the ones that you asked for, will be glad to send others. I will try to go through the Reynolds in Redhill Cemetery in the next few days and transfer those. I'm pretty busy right now so don't get on here daily. Looks like I may be having back surgery before long so may have more computer time then. I hate the fact that I'm not as able to get to the cemeteries to take pictures as that is something I enjoy doing. My email address doesn't work because I changed it when Bob Alvey left because he had my email and password while he was working on my findagrave (forgot my password) I had a breakdown and he took over for me until I was able to take my findagrave back.

So did you send the request for the transfers? I can not receive emails from the listed email address so the requests will need to be posted like this.
