Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love genealogy my only wish is that my husband of 40+ years had the same interest so that we could do this together. Second to that my daughter, Jana has picked up the interest and whenever possible she and I both work together, which is very rewarding. The old saying "two heads are better than one" is definately true. In Feb.2012 my husband had a stroke and with the care for him my time is limited for genealogy and entering memorials on findagrave. I still love finding time here and there to play around on the site. It is so rewarding to find a memorial of an ancestor, still finding new ones often, last one was as recent as 10/15/2013. As more members join and more memorials are entered I'm sure the rewards will continue...thanks to those who submit and manage memorials w/o you this site wouldn't grow.
This is a wonderful site for honoring passed loved ones. Hats off to the one who thought of this idea. Thank you for your hard work as well.

ANY MEMORIALS I HAVE CONTRIBUTED MAY BE COPIED AND USED FOR GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH OR PERSONAL USE ON FAMILY TREES, ANCESTRY.COM ACCOUNTS AND OR FAMILY NEWSLETTERS, ETC. WITHOUT SHARING WHERE WOULD GENEALOGY RESEARCH BE? IF THERE IS A MEMORIAL THAT I HAVE SUBMITTED THAT IS A LOVED ONE OF YOURS, ASK AND IF THEY ARE NOT CLOSELY RELATED TO ME I WILL BE GLAD TO TRANSFER. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT IT MAY BE WRITTEN IN STONE BUT STILL BE WRONG AND SHOULD BE USED ONLY AS A GUIDE FOR YOUR RESEARCH. IF YOU USE MY NOTES, PLEASE GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE, I DO.
Happy hunting,
Diana 46807288

Minnie Hambrick
I will gladly transfer her memorial to you. Maple Hill has online records with two databases. One is transcribed from the cemetery records and the other (the burial marker database) was created by volunteers who walked the older parts of the cemetery several years ago to try to capture some of the many people who are not listed in the records. Since both databases are incomplete, I use both to capture as many people as possible. Minnie appeared in both databases which means she does have a marker. You can submit a photo request to have someone take a picture for you. There are several people photographing Maple Hill.

Take care,
Heather

RE: jlong
Okay, Diane,
It looks like you will have to contact them; When I clicked on the "info@findagrave.com", my computer could not connect, because "My default mail client is not properly installed"--seems I have another problem to fix. Sorry!!

I believe you were the one I communicated with concerning Mary Jane Moyer Carr on Ancestry awhile back. Am I right?

Congratulations on the new grandbaby--they're such
precious bundles of joy. No rush on this other thing; loved ones are always more important than records by far.

RE: jlong
Diane, I looked over his memorials, and they are all for Pleasant Ridge Cemetery, where I have been working for the past month or so.

I believe he may have had one of the cemetery directories that was created by the Cosbys a few years ago for Pleasant Ridge Church, and was just copying obituaries to create the memorials. I didn't find any photos he added. Anyway, he was a long way from finished, so I finished them up, and have photographed a large portion of the cemetery--still lack about 40 more photos. I wanted to link the family members together, but I can't get any response from him on the ones he added.

I'm still relatively new as a contributor, so I have never contacted findagrave about anyone. I'll see if I can figure it out--will let you know if I can't.

RE: The Collier updates
Many thanks for your changing to the much earlier and more complete Collier mother's memorial.

Sorry if I seemed to rush too much.

Multiple Requests for Changes
Diana,

I have sent multiple requests for you to revise the linkage to the mother's memorial for the following children's memorials:

Sarah Lou Collier (1882 - 1971)
Find A Grave Memorial# 44504988

Van Stewart Collier (1888 - 1907)
Find A Grave Memorial# 26896252

Frances Ethelyn Collier (1894 - 1969)
Find A Grave Memorial# 17247909


Their mother's correct memorial# 32540855
Sarah Frances "Fannie" Stewart Collier

The present memorial that your three memorials are connected to is a much later duplicate which will be deleted in the next several days. At that time if you have not corrected the linkage to their mother in your three memorials, the present linkages will no longer work.

PLEASE MAKE THESE CORRECTIONS ASAP.

Hey Diane,

Have you ever received a reply from contributor, jlong, regarding Pleasant Ridge Cemetery? I haven't received any replies or updates to additional info that I have sent him regarding interments in that cemetery. I am wondering if he is inactive? Please let me know if you have
had a reply. Thanks.
