RE: Duplicate Memorial and using my picture You said "It might be a duplicate, but mine has all the family information on it for anyone researching him, and yours has basically nothing. He's my great grandfather and I've worked on my family and him for over 35 years."
Proper Find A Grave etiquette is to request a transfer of the earlier memorial to you. You would not delete the original memorial ... which you would then modify as you desire.
"Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information."
Alice Johnson Rinard Sherry, Do you have any additional information on Alice's parents, Samuel Johnson and Rhoda Moore (birth/death/burial location, etc)? I am a Moore family researcher and curious to know what happened to Rhoda who apparently died around the time son John Johnson was born (ca 1854/1855). Am also curious if you would care to share your family line of Elizabeth Johnson and Oliver Harris (married 31 Mar 1906 in Henry County, IN)? I have had little success tracing this family - Elizabeth apparently went by the name Lizzie but that was no help either. Thank you, and the memorial has been transferred to you. Ted Crayne.
