|I'm a preservationist and historian descended from many generations in Texas.|
I was so happy to find some "lost" ancestors through Find A Grave. I joined the Find A Grave community as a volunteer, to help other people find where their ancestors and loved ones are buried, and to see photographs of markers in cemeteries they will never be able to visit personally. So many wonderful, dedicated people have volunteered time and money to make this website a success. I am disappointed it is now owned by a for-profit company, using the time and efforts of numerous volunteers.
Please give credit to the volunteers who have created memorials, and ask permission to use photographs. I will be happy to add information to memorials, with proper documentation, and to transfer memorials, following the guidelines of Find A Grave.
Regrettably, due to recent hateful messages, I have changed my contributor name to an anonymous pseudonym. As a serious researcher, I thank all of you who are kind, generous, and working relentlessly to make Find A Grave an incredible resource.

|Anna Jaech||Rev. Nathan Hall|
The revised article has been updated. There are two outstanding requests for links. If you would like changes, please let me know.
|Anna Jaech||Nathan Hall|
I, too have left biographical sketches on flowers when unable to get the information posted in any other way. I'm sorry; but I think I didn't receive it. Both of my gg Williams grandparents knew father and son in KY and the (Nathan) Halls and Williams settled Boone county in the Smithton Company group.
Nathan Hall was the first minister of the Presbyterian Church of Columbia. Thee, he married John Brent Williams & Eleanora Keene. They named their 3rd child Nathan H. It took me **many** years to figure out who this Nathan might be. Then I bought a copy of The History of the Baptists in KY and saw it all! I saw the light!.
I would have jumped at what you sent. It was at this time I had a big security problem with my computer & had to switch from a Microsoft product to an Apple. I had a terrible time. I do appreciate your persistence.
Now. It's your call. I will copy it into the article, or we can let it stand as a flower so that get more a more visible notice. It's up to you.
I failed to tell you that John Brent Williams was the editor & publisher of the Missouri Telegraph of Fulton, MO (25 miles east of Columbia) from 1853 to until his death in 1882. I have those papers at home, on microfilm; and I have a reader. He wrote of Boone and Callaway counties. For a time, he had the 3rd largest circulation of any small town newspaper. If you had others you are interested in, please let me know.
I await your response to my question about the flower with info.

Could you please check your records for Frances Huntington Dering wife of Nicoll Havens Dering. Frances is listed twice as his wife with two separate Find A Grave numbers.
I found the grave stones for Nicoll in Forest Hill Cemetery Utica, NY. I added his other wife, Sarah.

Sorry. It doesn't matter who did what first, the other guy (micosay) is a descendant to the memorial in question. I am more a distant relative too. It would be nice of you to offer your info or transfer to him your findings and then delete this duplicate memorial. This should not be a "me first" competition. Thank you.

May I use your photos for family tree? I found some of my husband's ancestors whose stones you photographed. I appreciate your work as I love to do it, too. Photo courtesy given. Thank you.

|Bonnie Dorman||Frances "Fannie" Fleming, Memorial #28124177|
The Find A Grave memorial for my 3x great grandmother Frances "Fannie" R. Fleming lists her husband as Parks Fleming, memorial #29091555. Is there any proof that this is her husband? This is my brick wall. I don't know her maiden name.
She lived for many years in Troy, Pike County, Alabama. Three consecutive census records show her as married but a husband is never listed. She is buried in Shelby County, Texas, at Strong Cemetery with her sons John Edward Fleming and James "Jim" Monroe Fleming.
