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
RE: Mattie Slayton Thanks very much! I contacted Susan Bennett, and asked her to put the image out there, but it looks like she was beaten to the punch by Tim Slaton, who may not realize that he is not allowed to move other people's images. He is the grandson of Elmer and Mattie, and will probably be asking for a transfer of them, he had contacted a cousin Elmer about finishing Mattie's gravestone, and then the cousin died. Tim presumably knows her death date. Thanks again!
Utter confusion, my apologies The last EDIT that I sent to you re: 23312779 is correct, all previous requests to remove it are out of order. It so happens that 6199512 Mattie Sparkman has virtually the same profile, and since this family came through N AL, it looked to me as if you had created a duplicate. But as you posted it without an image, but have the image on husband Elmer H, I would suggest that you post that image at 23312779, so that this is clearer. My apologies, but if you link these two and put the image on both memorials, another researcher will not stumble over this the way I did. The person at 6199512 is a b SPARKMAN, but others have incorrectly identified her as an adopted SLATTON/SLATON. The dates and names are very close.
Clovia Gilbreath I would be happy to transfer this memorial to you for maintenance if you would like. I am not related, just take pictures to post on Find A Grave in hopes they will be useful to someone. Let me know.
