Bio and Links
Bio Photo My biggest complaint on here is people who will not correct duplicate memorials or mistakes Or people who search for errors and act as if they are the Find A Grave Police. Really we are all human. Lets dont be so rude and maybe you might get the response you wanted along with the correction. And if I have family on here dont ask me for there memorial and when I dont turn it over they are my family too.Do not tell me what Find A Grave policy is I know it. You do not know my connection to the memorial so if I say it is family than so be it. If I took the picture created the memorial then I am keeping it. DO NOT SEND ME EMAILS DEMANDING TRANSFER
I do not do Find a Grave for a numbers count. Do not imply that is what I do on my message wall ( and if the shoe fits wear it) I work very hard spend countless hours in hot humid cemeteries taking pictures to add on here so do not send me messages saying that is what I do. You have no idea what I do you are not me especially when you been a member for only a few weeks I have been on here 7 plus years and I take this very serious. I do not like this type of attitude and if you are going to be that way then maybe this is not a website for you. I try to ensure each person has a photo of their marker if there is one I will photograph it and add it to the site. I enjoy this very much however when people join and appointment themselves FAG police it upsets me very much. So unless you are on FAG payroll please find someone else to criticize.

RE: Transfers
In requesting for transfers it was my understanding that the memorial would go to the grand children and great grand children if requested. Just because someone takes a picture with Find a Grave does not automatically make it their property. It was my understanding that everyone done this because it helped with locating ancestors, not so they could see how many they could accumulate. I was not being ugly I thought I asked in a manner appropriate and you responded with an UGLY message. I am also a Cooley Descent. Annie Prudence Cooley was my dad's grandmother and she raised him. I am doing the Chapman/Cooley for him not my self. There are also others like Kenneth Darby that is a descent of the Chapman's and Cooley's.

Hi. My daughter Kimberly is friends with your daughter. Kimberly said you wanted to add me. I added you as a friend. I haven't added much but if you have any questions please let me know.

White Plains Church
My husband is buried at White Plains Church but he is not showen on the list of persons buried there.
The name on the tombstone is Harvey "Mike" and he passed away April 5, 2007. All the persons around him are listed. Why is he left off the list?

Please disregard previous message about L.B. Mattison Memorial

I found a high-res version on and it clearly shows the birth year as 1878 so no need to check.

L.B. Mattison Memorial Pic in Broadmouth Church Cemetery, Anderson SC
Hi Kristen,

Thanks for taking photos for all these memorials. It is much appreciated, and you can not be thanked enough!

I have a question about the memorial pic you posted for L.B. Mattison (I think the L on the memorial was incorrectly listed as your photo shows "H").

To make matters more confusing, I believe the real first initial for this gentleman was "I" for Ithama so throw that into the mix.

In looking at this gentleman's death certificate, it is very hard for me to read the birth year on it so I was hoping you could check your original photo for the year of birth. In your photo it looks like "1878", but on his death certificate it could be "1878" or "1876" and his age on the certificate is listed as 54 (which would make his birth year 1876)

This one is confusing indeed. Thanks in advance any further clarify you might be able to shed on this from your original picture.

Pelzer Community Cemetery
I just came across your photo for Laura Golden (36543668), thank you for posting. I wanted to ask a favor...I don't know how often you go back to this cemetery or how far it is from you, but I am looking for Laura's father, John B. Golden 1863-1921. I do not know if he has a headstone, but according to his death certificate he is buried in Pelzer Cemetery. I assume it is this one since his daughter is buried here. If you did find it, I will create a memorial so you could add the photo.
Thank you very much, Vicki

RE: Photos
Yay! My fingers are crossed that something can be done to restore what you took a ton of time (and resources) to do. Let me know what ends up happening.

I just wanted to give you a heads up that at least one member who'd added a lot of memorials in the area has deleted the majority - right along with the pictures added by others. I don't know if you delete the photos you've taken after you post them, but if you do, I'd highly recommend not doing it.

Since I don't keep track of my numbers, I have no clue when this started, so it may be old news, but since you've taken so many photos, it would be absolutely horrible even a small number were lost forever. So many of those markers aren't getting any easier to read with time.

Thanks for making the changes, Kristen. Much appreciated.

RE: East View Honea Path
Just to let you know, a local boy scout is going to "map" Eastview Cemetery as his Eagle project and some unmarked graves will soon be marked. There are unmarked graves in all sections of the cemetery and who is buried in some of them might never be known, but having an index of graves at Eastview is long overdue.
