Bio and Links
Bio Photo THIS IS A HOBBY not my LIFE!!!
I Have been researching Family lines for over 35 years.
Please BE EXTREMELY PATIENT WITH ME.. I don't have time to get to everyone's request right away. I have a very busy Life. sometimes don't check my email for days and it piles up.. I Put them in a special folder and I will do them whenever I have a minute.I haven't lost your requests I just haven't gotten to them yet.. PLEASE BE PATIENT. ESPECIALLY RIGHT NOW... I AM CARING FOR AN ELDERLY PARENT WITH DEMENTIA AND IT TAKES UP A LOT OF MY TIME.
IT will be done as I have time!! [On the same note I do not expect Instant Service from any of the volunteers on this site for anything I request either...] I'm FULLY aware that people are busy with their lives and this is a HOBBY

In the SAME light.. this is NOT a Genealogy Research project this is about the Cemeteries.
while I like to get more info and do link ups and maybe a SHORT bio page on the Person that lists an Obit and maybe little more, It is Wasteful to put clips from census and other large documents and 'family histories' into the Bio. this really is NOT the place for your Genealogy Family Research to be STORED. ~But if you cant find the spouse, or parents to link them. I'd be happy to put a list of deceased children and info on the unlinked parents and spouses in the Bio .. ~
[FAG: "the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have MEANINGFUL, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."]

Regarding Transfers: PLEASE READ FINDAGRAVE's TRANSFER REQUIREMENTS before requesting a transfer.
IF YOU ARE DIRECTLY RELATED (read FAG DEFINITION! does NOT mean Every cousin, Aunt or Uncle!) to someone that I have entered and wish to request to have them transferred to you.. please use the EDIT tab on any memorial to make request. PLEASE!~ USE THE EDIT FEATURE TO REQUEST EACH ONE ~
PLEASE: If you request a transfer I MUST HAVE YOUR MEMBER NUMBER.. I do not have time to go look it up. PLEASE us Edit request for EACH of the persons you want. Do not a list them all in one.. I do not look up links!(no time)

PLEASE!~ USE THE EDIT TAB FEATURE TO REQUEST EACH ONE ~ I do not respond to "notes" left on this page for requests NOR do I respond to direct emails. (I MUST HAVE THE LINKS)

PLEASE NOTE.. CHILDREN ARE HOOKED UP BY LINKING THE PARENTS on CHILDREN's memorial. GIVING ME A LIST OF THE CHILDREN to "link" to the parents WILL Get you NOTHING. (I may not "own" their memorials in the first place)
Please DO NOT FORWARD your "COPY" from FAG. (it may not reach me for one and it clutters my email)

Regarding Duplicates: (actually FAG policy is NO DUPLICATES) It is not my intention to create a duplicate on purpose. If you come across a duplicate I have made, please use the EDIT tab and let me know. I'll be happy to look into removing it. Please don't create a duplicate of my memorials; I would rather you ask for edits instead of creating a duplicate. Duplicates are the ones with the LATER date or number.

PLEASE DO NOT HARASS ME over Requests either (IE: multiple requests over and over and over with demanding/rude comments). it is RUDE and CHILDISH. THIS IS A HOBBY... not a REQUIREMENT for life.. I will eventually get to it.

Regarding Messages: (PREFERRED) Please contact me USING THE EDIT feature in any memorial. I don't always respond to "private" messages.

A BIG thank you to those who send SHORT personal Bio, death notices, obits and links to add to the memorials. They are wonderful additions that I love to Add.


{I reserve the RIGHT to delete ANY comment left on this page at ANY TIME!}

as of late I've been getting RUDE DEMANDS to remove my listings.. PLEASE REFER TO FAG RULES!!! if you can't be polite I won't listen to you!

BE PATIENT... I've had to let them pile up because of Classes and Family emergencies.. I WILL get to them eventually. _ I am currently trying to work on the folder I've kept this past year and get them caught up... but it is quite large so patience please.. I'll get there.

Different headstones..
Just wondering why there is a headstone on this site that has the names of John F. & Ida I. Forbus. Is there any significance ?

Minna Gathwright Trexler
Hi. I made the corrections for her. Curious how are you related to her? She was married to my great uncle, James Trexler. I have very little memory of her. I was just eight when she died.

Kelly /Gathright

Saw your work on here and greatly appreciate it. I'm a grandson of J.O. Kelly. My grandmother often took me to see Ellen Gathright, not sure how you might be related.

I'm very interested in the Kelly family line, back through Arnold and hopefully to Ireland.

Kate Simmons McRee Ratterree
Hi Carol,

Daniel Vaughn mbr #47933768 here.

You posted a family photo on the Find a Grave memorial for Kate mem #10666614. Is that her husband, John Lowry, to the right and Lula and Mary in front of her? Kate's father-in-law was Leonard Lunsford Ratterree. My wife, Carolyn Ratterree, descends from Leonard's brother Henry Maben, mem #24566825. We have been to the Troy Cemetery and photographed all the Ratterree relatives we could find.

Are you related to the Ratterree's? If so, would you have any idea where the rest of LL and Sarah Ratterree's children are burried?

Sallie (D: 20 Feb 1893), Obion Co.,TN*
Lula (1873-14 Nov 1888), Obion Co.,TN*
Leroy (1870-7 Oct 1895), Kaufman Co., TX*
Martha (B: 1868) ??
Mary (B: 1864) ??

* Per ARP Church records.

Thank you for any consideration and for your work with Find a Grave. Please let us know if we can ever assist with photos or information in the Middle Tennessee area.

Hi Carol,

You are very welcome. I am glad I could help.

Thank you for understanding. It can get pretty crazy with all the requests.
