I get requests to link family members, I do then I get nasty rude emails telling there wrong. So from now on the only way I will link anyone is if they are on the same headstone. I will be more than glad to transfer the memorial and you can link them. I will be glad to transfer or delete every one I have. I used to enjoy this site but lately there is so much rudeness in the e-mails. I hardly ever get on here anymore. (Jim, Debbie, I will be glad to do anything for you. It's not because of you, it's others.)
The way it used to read.
I am related to the Harts from Jackson co. Fla. the Piners from Wilmington NC. Allens and Whites from Ga. If you are related to anyone that I have posted and would like them transfered to you I will be glad to do it as long as i'm not related to them, (and most likely i'm not). Some people will only transfer up to 4 generations back, I will transfer no matter how far back it is as long as find a grave don't mind. Now if you only transfer 4 back then thats all I will do for you. What goes around comes around.I would like to have my G.G.G.Grandfathers Capt Henry William Paris and William A. Allen but the contributors have stated they won't transfer back that far. I will be glad to link everyone I can so family members can be closer together. You are welcome to use any of my photos as you like. Just dont create a duplicate memorial, use my photo, then ask me to delete mine, (someone did that). If I have posted any information that is wrong, please let me know and I will correct it. I will delete duplicates, but not if mine was there first. I try to add a flag for every military person and confederate veteran. If you don't stand behind our troops, feel free to stand in front of them. Fredom is not free. It is still being paid for. If you must burn our flag please wrap your self in it first. If you can read this thank a teacher. If You're reading it in english. thank the military. Have a great day. ^(-.-)^
Joseph Branch Tanner II Hey Barry, My name is Danny Tanner. Thanks for all your work at Find A Grave. I am going to sponsor my Great Grandfathers Memorial I just want to make sure it want mess you up. Do you know if I will be able to add a Bio. for Him?. Once again thanks for all your WORK. Danny
Della McMichael transfer I just sent you a request for a transfer...and I forget say something in my previous message. For all those difficult people out there, there have been (in my brief experience on Find A Grave) an immense amount of contributors who have gone completely out of their way to pull rabbits out of the hat for me this first year. My list of "Friends" are ones who have done family tree research on my behalf, answered (otherwise) stupid questions I've had, helped clean up mistakes I've made, and most, at some point, have bent over backwards - because they all have benefited in some way by me sweeping in and adding to their already existing 'bare-bones' memorials. It's all good Barry, just wanted to emphasize that.
Walden - Bowden Barry: I am trying to locate the parents of our John Bryant Bowden who married Mary LuVada Goss. I doubt you will remember me by name but this is my line and I think you will recognize our relationship: Our Great Great Grandparents John Bryant Bowden m Mary LuVada Goss Our Great Grandparents d. Genorah Annette Bowden m. Wesley Wade Walden From here down, burials in Fairview and Bethel UMC Cemeteries My Grandparents (this is where our line splits) d. Amanda Frances Walden m. Ewell Theron Hendon My Parents d. Antionette ("Nettie) Frances Hendon m. Joe L Duke My brother is deceased and buried next to our grandparents at Bethel: Joe Leon Duke, Jr. (deceased) m. 1 Judy Brock - divorced m. 2. Vicki Bock Kalid Me (still living, of course) Rebecca Anita Duke m. John A. Jones
I am stuck on the Bowden side of our family and also have some problems past the Walden line. Some people are trying to prove Tavner to be WW's father but no yet proven.
The main person I am tying to get are the parents of John Bryant Bowden. You know how the web is ... they have him in the home of Matthew and Evaline (nee McWhorter) Goss when he was a young boy. They were in Habersham County, GA and I have a census that listed him as their son but that is not correct. He married their daughter Mary LuVada Goss and that has never been legal. :) Do you know how he came to live with them? Oral tradition said he was living with his uncle but I find no connection between the Bowden and the Goss families that would make that so.
Is there any chance you might have any info/leads you would share with me?
Andrew J White (Pvt) Thank you for posting the handsome waving flag icon for my (our?) distant relative Andrew J White (Hollywood Cem, Richmond). I hope to visit there in the Spring. Perhaps we're related!
