In case you would care: Acquires Find A Grave September 30, 2013. And the most important statement, that of Jim Tipton, founder and owner of FAG Note from Jim Tipton

Honoring those in Boston
Bruins-Sabres National Anthem
Angie Miller AMERICAN IDOL -I'll Stand By You-

Hi, I'm Gina, born 1955 to George and Margaret Maddix Townley. I've always lived on the TX/LA state line at the coast. All my relatives are in Alabama and Georgia as my father saw fit to move to see "the cowboys" after his service in the Air Force in WWII.
I've been a FAG member over 10 years! If you think there is anything I could help you with or help contribute to your search, all you need to do is ask.
I have been willingly helped at every task, and I am more than willing to re-pay and pay that forward.

   The family memorials are created by myself and my husband under my name and are already set up to pass to my designated child when both of us are unwilling or unable to continue. By combining our efforts our children's ancestors will all be managed by the same person.
Please, think ahead! Designate someone to continue or maintain your work!

Transfer guidelines are posted in FAG's FAQ. ALL transfer request should come through the edit tab. Be respectful of creators. REMEMBER to be willing to give MORE than you RECEIVE.
***************INFO & PHOTOS***************
Any information on my pages credited to myself, is freely available for ANYONE'S use. Please feel free to incorporate anything that belongs to me into anything you wish. You do NOT have to link my page or credit me. My only request is that you use the information correctly and respectfully. UPDATE 12/2/2012 Because of some ill intentioned people I have decided to make things even easier. Every one of my photos will now have the COPYRIGHT and the RELEASE on the photo itself. You will never be asked to account for it's origin or your permission as it's already there! Hope this helps.
FAG allows only very small photos.
Photos uploaded to FAG are required to be reduced 'til they aren't good for much else. I save ALL my photos. If you want a better copy I'll be more than happy to email you any size you want. Just ask.

@@@ The most simplisticly honest approach to dealing with gravestone images use came to me from a FAG newbie. Shouldn't we all take this sentiment to heart? All I'm asking is that you think about it.@@@@

   ***** "I don't ask a deceased individual's family member if I can photograph their loved one's grave so I don't expect them to ask my permission to use the photo on another website."-Sonia Sanchez*****
The idea is to get as much information available to the general public as possible thereby creating more interest in preserving our ancestry. Information posted by me showing source documents is being used under Section 107, fair use, of the Copyright Act of 1976 generalized for "information, teaching and genealogy". If an ANY TIME you feel as there has been a copyright infringement, contact me for immediate removal, until a decision can be made.
Please feel free to share with me anything you wish, ask anything you like. My opinions are my own and I will honor yours as well.
I respond to all e-mail and all messages (although I'm sometimes slow and don't mind being reminded).


While I respect FAG's mission of grave registration, MY mission is to provide genealogical information for those registrations. The two do not need to be mutually exclusive. I am truly thankful for those who have the time and energy to register multitudes of grave for the rest of us to find.


I hope your ancestral journey proves as entertaining and worthwhile as mine has proved to be.

My favorite quote, paraphrased, from Maya Angelou:
"People will forget what you did, forget what you said, but they will never forget the way you made them feel."

No truer words were ever spoken. My own personal quote is,
"Nothing happens in this life that cannot be fixed, forgiven or forgotten."

Be kind. Be Gentle. Make it a way of life to commit a random act of kindness as often as possible. Smile. Be happy. Life is short. Enjoy it.

*and remember, at the end of the day, it's about what we leave behind*

RE: Mattie Aldridge
Thank YOU! I know it is easy to accidentally create multiple memorials and sometimes they don't show up right away. I always try to notify the memorial manager when I run across them. Have a great day!

RE: John R. Townley
Hi Gina, I have been looking for John R. Townley's grave for several years. He was married to Scenia F. Morris. She is buried in Lawrenceville, GA. Records indicate that John was born in 1806 in SC. But lived primarily in GA.
He provided supplies to the Confederacy. I have read that he died in Forsyth Co., GA ca.1866. Otherwise, he seems to have vanished. Do you know anything about him? My mother was a Townley, the daughter of Thomas Pink Townley and Brilla Carter. John R. Was his great-grandfather. That would make John R. and Scenia my g-g-g-grandparents.

How are you related to the Townleys?

Do you have any idea where John R. Townley b. 1806 in SC and died ca. 1877 possibly in Cumming, GA is buried? He was Scenia F. Morris's husband

OK - I changed my profile page and the link for Leave a Public message is gone. And I've not been getting all of my messages.

R J (Richard Jordan) Allen (#126831321) & Marietta Virginia Hunt (#126831676) are my wife's Great-Great-Grandparents.

Would you please change the "R J" to Richard Jordan?

I know that you have connected Richard and Marietta in text, but would you please connect them thru Find-a-Grave?

Thanks for you help!

RE: Sophia & Webster Stanley
Well, glad you appreciated it! I can't tell you how many times I've been read the riot act by findagrave Nazis for posting things like this. No joke.
