RE: Martin Surname
No. Sure am not. The Martin name was the 13th most popular name in the 1990's Census. There's a bunch of us around. LOL

So sorry Dave. The correct Find A Grave #4970054. PS thank you for photographing the gravesite. I made the mistake of using a Polaroid in the 1990's to ensure going home with a good shot. Big mistake. They are darkening and facing at the same time. Thanks again, Jo-Ann

Mr Dave Francis, I have a little bit more information to add to Anne Dean's profile. Would you prefer to enter it or would you like to transfer her to me? Jo-Ann Wright

RE: Photo of Lucy Johnson's resting place

"Interesting, the headstone photo, in my genealogy program, says that I got the photo from FindAGrave."


Just because find a grave HAS a photograph does not mean it is YOURS or that you can use it without obligation to the original contributor. I have worked with F.A.G. for decades and the copyright laws are strictly enforced.

It is simple. All one has to do is acknowledge the fact that the photograph was provided by...

It is common politeness. Very few, unfortunately, acknowledge this fact.

No, it is not uncommon for people to post photographs they rip of other sites. I just wanted to let YOU know where it came from.

I work countless hours tending to our ancestors grave sites just to see others "claim" the honor without even a mention of who really does the work.

You may keep the photo as is. It would be nice if you attributed the photograph to the one who actually took it and cares for that cemetery.

Photo of Lucy Johnson's resting place
The Photograph of the Gravestone for Lucy wood was lifted from My media for her tree. Find A Grave Memorial# 33610219

We've cared for her grave site for many years and the daffodils planted on each side of her stone were planted by myself. This is not even the oldest picture of that stone we included, but the time stamp along the right side is from my camera. We visit her grave often and I can add a NEW picture to that site to confirm this. Just so you know.

Memorial #25192584 Mary Benton
Hi Dave,

This tombstone has Mary Benton on one side, and then on what looks like the opposite side in another memorial is her husband Alpha P Benton. Can you tell me what the other names are on the tombstone. Mary was my 2x great aunt. Thank you, Debbie

Hi Dave, Thank you SO much for processing the edits so quickly (William Fitch). His family was a tough one to unravel. You make things so easy for me by processing the edits so quickly and I appreciate that very much. I will be finding his father soon, and will send you another edit as soon as I do. Thank you again! Deb
