Bio and Links
I have researched family genealogy for more than 40 years.

I think that findagrave is a wonderful resource, and most of its contributors are considerate of each other.

Thank you Tony, reference the information that you recovered. The suggestions that you have made, not only this one, but in the past, have always been very educational and helpful.
Thank you again Tony! lpb,II

RE: James Oliver Brockman, Jr
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information. There are guidelines regarding entering memorials with alternative dispositions to traditional burial. This includes cremation, lost or buried at sea, and donated to medical science. And there are guidelines for entering a memorial where the cemetery is not known for a recent burial but Location of body unknown should be used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. Final disposition should be determined and updated within 30 days.

Any contributor who is working in a particular cemetery may discover James Sr and will search the Find A Grave cemetery, find no record and enter a memorial for him. Now the burial unknown is the duplicate. And - they're not required to do a global search. In fact, the burial unknown won't show if you enter a state in your search.

The examples you gave were alternative dispositions. The memorial you want linked is Burial unknown which should have been updated with final disposition.

I do realize folks would like to use this site for more than what it was designed for and it is impossible to make everyone happy. Just my thoughts.

RE: Eddy & Beulah Durham
I just added another photo to Ed Durham's memorial. This shows close up of the dates. You saw the first one before I got finished with today's postings. LOL

Regarding "I've resent parent links for this memorial. You declined the first set saying the memorial is up to date. It is not. Please accept these updates."

As I stated - I do not link to burial unknowns

Forgive me if I am at a loss, if we had this conversation before, not knowing you were related to the Brannon family and your connections.

I appreciate the transfers you have so graciously and promptly surrendered, and I will take care of them to the best of my ability and provide new information as I can.

Do not feel that you have transfer, if you are inclined to maintain any these Brannon sites, I have no intent to deprive anyone of their extensive and diligent work as a genealogist.

But, Thank You as your work and transfers have helped inspire me to continue to build my site with The Brannons with their ancestors as well as descendents.

John Hill
Buel Hill at Magness Cemetery
Hi Tony,

I got an email from a Glynda regarding the duplication of memorials for a Buel Hill. Apparently, yours has him at the correct cemetery, but the other one, listed as being at Wilburn Cemetery (which doesn't exist), has an extra bit of information listed on it.

I was wondering if you could add the following bio to your version of Buel's memorial:

Son of Emmit Hill Sr. and Lethel Hill, Husband of Margaret Hill, Sisters: Martha Hill Pearrow, Geneva Hill Reed, Ruby Hill Bell, Wencie Hill Smith, Lavada Hill Clairday, Sarah Hill Herriott, Tapsy Hill Cox. Brothers: Charles Hill, Emmit Hill Jr., Buel Hill.
-Roger Herriott

William T. Hightower
Find A Grave Memorial# 31356972-died 1845

I have a question. There are two Findagrave memorials for William T. Hightower-one listing burial in Hightower Cemetery, Montgomery County, Mississippi and the other listing burial in Hightower Cemetery, Webster County, Mississippi. I suspect this is the same cemetery. It appears that Webster County may have been part of Montgomery County at some time. I'm wondering how to record that in my Ancestry tree. Perhaps you might have an answer for me. William Thomas Hightower's wife, Royzamond Anderson Lloyd was my ggg grandfather's first cousin.
