Bio Photo Hello.

My darling friend and father just died. Please be patient - I will be back to make the necessary changes to my memorials.

I am in Michigan. I am not related to 99.999% of my entries, but have added them with the hope that other researchers who have come to a dead end may be helped. With respect to those entries, I have no other information available as I have tried to include as much info as I have.


Please do not be offended, but for a number of reasons, including the volume of requests, I transfer memorials in accordance with Find A Grave's published guidelines. If you request a transfer, please be sure to include your relationship to the person who is the subject of the memorial. I cannot respond to transfer requests for all memorials with the same surname in a cemetery or to requests for a large number of memorials with the same surname.

If there are entries which need to be linked, please send the info to me via the correction/EDIT option or Suggest a Change (SAC) in the upper right corner and I will add the links. Also, if you would like me to add information to a memorial, please forward the relevant info via the SAC option for the quickest response.

If there is information in a memorial concerning a living person which you would like removed, please send me a request via the SAC option.

PLEASE DO NOT send transfer requests, relationship links or additional information for memorials via the public messages option. I do not make changes sent to my profile page. PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB LOCATED IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE MEMORIAL.

OBITUARIES: Find A Grave has updated its policy concerning the use of obituaries in memorials (See: "Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?" under the Frequently Asked Questions section). If you send a request asking that an obituary be added, please be sure to confirm in your message that you have complied with the policy or I will not be able to add it.

Generally, I do not link to unknown burials.

Many thanks for the kind notes, thank yous, flowers and tokens which are left on the memorials. It is rewarding to know that my work has helped someone.

Thank you.

RE: Lovella Sue Denton Vallus
I'm sorry, Twist. You're no doubt quite correct. Each time I've mailed the one who can change it, comes up with an excuse... so I was getting desperate, which is why I contacted you. For that, please forgive me. In the meanwhile, I thank you for all you do here. :)

Hi there. Thank you for all the edits. I approved all of them except one however, I put a note in the memorial to reflect this. In the note I say this:

Note: An edit was sent to change the date of death to "July 8, 2014" but this published newspaper says the 7th of July.

I kept the date that the newspaper mentions of "July 7, 2014" (however, I know it might be incorrect) because it helps to avoid duplicates. If and when a photo is posted that reflects this date of "July 8th" then I will change the day of death.

Just wanted to let you know this. If you have a photo of the marker, your more than welcome to post it. Great work! Appreciate all your efforts! Cheers! :)

Transfer request
I do not know how to privately message you. I am kindly requesting the transfer of my grandmother's page. I am managing her mother's, father's, half sister and half brother's (will add in a bit) pages.
Shortly, I plan on making the trip out to Betty's grave site to take a photo.
If you need to, feel free to message me or email me (email should be made public on my profile)
Thanks so much!
Grand-daughter to Betty Jean Watson

Shannon family
Added photos of James and J. Elizabeth Shannon. Cemetery records indicate they also had a stillborn child in 1915. The dates seem pretty far out for Elizabeth (63 yrs in 1915). I entered the baby but did not put heritage till I hear what you think? Also, do you want the memorial transferred to you?

Hello Twist-
Just wanted to let you know that I'm sorry about the loss of your father. Also, I'm not sure who's responsible, but on the obit of Lovella Sue Denton Vallus, she was not ever married to a Donald D. Vallus. Her husband is very much alive, and his name is David Vallus. Thank you.
