My philosophy is that since this is a grave site memorials should reflect information shown on grave marker. I will add other info in notes if sources are provided.

RE: Hester J. Hudson
And by the way, I just wanted you to know I'm not trying to be rude or unpleasant. I know it's hard to tell my intent or tone just from reading words in a message. I greatly admire your desire for accuracy. I have the same philosophy, as you will see in my bio. So please, I hope you don't take offense. Even if we disagree over whether a death certificate is a reliable source, we both have the same goal, accuracy. And that's what's important. Hester Hudson is not related to me, I just happened to stumble upon the information while researching something else and thought it might be beneficial to someone else. I like to share and help others ( as I'm sure you do as well)and if some information I find can save someone a few minutes researching it themselves, that's a bonus!

RE: Hester J. Hudson
I never said anything about Find A Grave being a "one-stop genealogy site". Find A Grave has provided options to enter this and other various information for a reason and it's a terrible disservice to everyone to blatantly ignore information from usually credible resources such as state issued death certificates. But that's just my opinion, and obviously the opinion of the majority of Find A Grave users as well as the creators. Thanks.

RE: Hester J. Hudson
What a shame! I've never encountered this situation before. Usually people want as much information as possible. It'll probably be a new one for the people at Find A Grave too. Thanks.

RE: Hester J. Hudson
All the information is in the edit request. Are you familiar with the edit function? When you create a memorial and people find additional information they submit an edit request. The edit will show what is currently on the memorial and the change that the person is suggesting. You have the option to either "Approve" "Ignore" or "Decline". If you decline, then you have to select the reason why you are declining so that if the person disagrees with the decline they can contact Find A Grave to have it overruled. Here's Find A Grave's instructions, they explain it better!

How do I process memorial edits I have received?
From your 'Profile' page, select the 'Edits' tab. The tab will display the number of edits you currently have pending. If the number is more than 25, the number will be displayed in red.

'Pending Edits I need to review' will be displayed. From here, you can review the pending edits submitted to you by other members. You will see three columns. The first will be the name of the memorial which you can click on to open the memorial in a new window. The second will show you how the memorial looks currently. And the third will show you the proposed look after the edit. All edits are by default as 'Accept'. Do not click 'Process selected edits' at the bottom of the page until you are ready to approve all the edits marked 'Accept'.

Accepting the edit will update the memorial to show what is in the 'Edit' column.

Declining the edit will not process the update for the memorial. If you decline the edit, you must select the reason from the dropdown menu as well as leave an optional short note.

Once you have selected one of the three options for each of the edits on the page, click 'Process selected edits'. The system will begin updating the memorials with the selected updates. Wait for the page to complete before going on to the next task. [Top]

RE: armwell long cemetery
Hi Marjorie, according to the caption below the picture it was Published in the Milford Chronicle Sept 2, 1927. Unfortunately I didn't write on there what page it was on, but I hope that helps.

RE: Corporal Joel Thompson Martin, Co. A,86th Illinois
Marjorie, Thanks for the message. I just thought I'd try. I'd love to add his biography to his Find A Grave site. Like I said, I've been working on the history, service records and family history on the 992 men who served in the 86th for over 30 years now and already have tons on the Martins, just thought it'd be nice to add it to his Find A Grave site so all could see it.
I continue to be amazed at the number of Find A Grave Contributors who have decided that biographies are not appropriate for Find A Grave when the Creators of Find A Grave set up the sites so that biograhies could be added. I love Find A Grave for the fact that it's free, and in one site you can see pictures of not only that individual, but pictures of his tombstone and all sorts of biographical information, plus have direct links both to his parents and the past, but links to his children and descendants. I LOVE IT!! I have heard from descendants of the 86th almost daily for over 5 years since I started adding all of the photographs and biographical information that I have on each of the 86th. Most tell me that they have never seen so much information or so many photographs of their Civil War ancestor and their mess mates in one place before. I love writing about these guys and telling the story of their service and sacrifice to this country. I just always hope to see it make their Find A Grave sites. He served his country for almost three years and was almost certainly in the ranks on that fateful, June 27, 1864, when Captain Jo Major led approximately the 45 remaining men of Co. A in the assault on Cheatham Hill during the Battle of Kennesaw Mountain, Georgia. By the time the assault faltered, through no fault of their own, the Eureka company had suffered over 50% casualties, the highest among the companies of the 86th, having 11 men killed in action, 9 men wounded and 6 others were wounded and captured. Three of the wounded and captured would not survive the war. I have sat at the breastworks on Cheatham Hill many times over the years and like to see these men remembered for what they did there.
If you ever change your mind, I'd love to see you add a biography to Joel's site, especially remembering his service to this country and his family. Thanks for all you are doing for Find A Grave. It is and always will be GREATLY APPRECIATED!! Sincerely, Baxter

Corporal Joel Thompson Martin, Co. A,86th Illinois
Dear Marjorie, My name is Baxter Fite and I have been the Historian for a Living History unit, which portray the men who served in the 86th Illinois during the Civil War, since 1985. During this time, I have put together thousands of biographical information about the unit and the men who served in it. With the help of countless numbers of people, I have located the final resting place of 907 of the 992 men who served in the 86th. If you ever want a real challenge, I need help locating the final resting place of the last 85 or so. Check out my Virtual cemetery for my missing from the 86th.
Another lady who had the set up the site for Ezra Keller Conrad, who also spent his final years in Webster County, Nebraska, transferred his site to me, allowing me the HONOR of writing his biography. I have some work to do on it yet, but, would you take a look at it?
I would love to do the same for Corporal Martin if you wouldn't mind transferring him. I would be glad to transfer him back to you after I am finished if you are related to him, but, as I would on these biographies, I try to locate descendants with an interest in managing their sites after I have done what I can do and I hope to do the same with Corporal Martin.
Well, I had better close for now. Thanks for all you have done for Find A Grave and Thanks for considering this request. I would really love to work on a nice biography for him and his family. Thanks. Sincerely, Baxter B. Fite III (Find A Grave Contributor # 47203738)
