We love genealogy and recognize the importance of it. We treasure the little bits and pieces that we are able to glean from the smallest specs of information. We do our best to help others as others have helped us... however...
Although it is our normal policy to attach memorials to those to whom know them best, we will no longer just randomly transfer memorials simply because they are in your genealogical tree. Findagrave is not a "collection" site. It is a Memorial site designed to honor those who've gone before us. We do not treat them as "property" to be traded or collected to increase your numbers and notoriety. If you have more data or biographical information, we will gladly verify and add it to the repective memorials and do any necessary linking to parents & spouses.
You can do this quite easily by clicking on the "Edit" tab at the upper right corner of the memorial. Once opened, you will see a "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" link. If you click on that link, a message box will appear that will allow you to send a message directly to the memorial creator who can then add the information as needed. You can easily check the box that will allow you to send a copy of each transmission to your own e-mail for your records as well.
If we have ownership of a memorial that you are related to, ask and we will either transfer ownership or may share accumulated information if you are closely related and can verify your relationship. If you'd like to use a photo for genealogical purposes that we have added... please just give credit where credit is due by referencing our ownership of the photo and where you located it. ~"Happy Hunting"
Your tombstone stands among the rest; neglected and alone The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone It reaches out to all who care It is too late to mourn You did not know that I'd exist You died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone. Our blood contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled one hundred years ago Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so. I wonder if you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot, and come to visit you. -Author Unknown
Margaret Wiley Thank you for letting me know about the duplicate memorial. Since mine was the original but I only had her listed as Mrs Jake Wiley, I think best that I will delete my memorial for her. Thanks for letting me know. Jackie Dare
Memorial# 22881746 You have Nancy Ham Born 1821 died 1952. That would make her 130+ years old when she died. Do you have a photo of the grave or source for these dates by chance? I believe this is the 1st wife of Malcolm Hamm buried in the same cemetery. Her name was Nancy Conrad who died in 1858 when her last child was born. Regards, Michelle
I noticed that a couple years back you requested a photo of your great grand uncle, and although a volunteer wasn't able to find his grave, today I posted a copy of his death certificate on his memorial. I hope this little bit of information might help you.
RE: Fowlers Grove United Methodist Church Cemetery Photos I'm glad that those will work for you. I wish I had a chance to go back and get Minnie's marker for you as well. I am from St Louis, and am only here for one day looking for loved ones of my own who came from this area and wanted to do what I could for the members of this site who have helped me on my genealogy work. I'm so sorry. I hope another member will be able to get that photograph for you soon! God bless, Melanie
William Torgerson Hi there- am posting a few pics of the marker for William. I actually set this up a few years ago, and his marker is hard to photograph with the sun and the black marker, but think I have a fairly good picture for you to see what his marker looks like. His marker is in a very old, section of the cemetery which is very hilly and on the north end of the cemetery. This area used to see many teens and young kids frequenting the huge Rucker Tomb above his marker, and vandalizing markers on the way down the hill and out of the cemetery. The cemetery is great now with security and vandalism has gone way down. I have a friend who helps out with photographs in this area, so we are partners in numbers to be safe!
i am very thankful the marker for William is there and am posting a few pics, and would love to send them to you. Please let me know if okay to send!
RE: Albert Stutzke - 135426376 Because it is a recent burial, the office thought a marker might be forth coming. I'll keep an eye out. Just a note, we are in our "rainy" season. Might take a while for all involved.
