Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have recorded the birth date, death date, and last address of your family members. Now it is your turn to edit and enhance their memorials, for the enjoyment of future generations.

Thank you so much to the people who generously donate their time and money to provide information, photographs, and floral contributions to people who may never be able to thank them. I especially appreciate those who remember this is much bigger than ourselves and consistently maintain their memorials in a professional manner, treating others volunteers in the respectful way in which they like to be treated.
******************************
The "Relationship Link" feature is an amazing way to link family members and build your family tree. You can link each memorial to his/her parent(s) and spouse(s). To use this feature:
1) Select "Edit" next to "Family Links" or
"Link Family Members" for first link
2) Type in (or copy and paste) the memorial number of the parent(s) or spouse(s) in the appropriate box.
3) Select "Save Changes"

Steward for these memorials when I pass
on is "RTerry" #46537864 .

FINDAGRAVE MEMORIAL TRANSFER POLICY

First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Third, If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.

Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.

Fifth, The "Suggest a correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above defintion. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor should make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.

Sixth, Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

I HAVE HAD AN OVERABUNDANT AMOUNT OF BAD EXPERIENCES TRANSFERRING MEMORIALS TO MEMBERS WHO QUICKLY LOSE INTEREST AND ABANDON THE MEMORIALS I CREATED. WHEN I LOOK AT YOUR PROFILE AND I SEE YOU HAVE HAD HUNDREDS, OR THOUSANDS, OF MEMORIALS TRANSFERRED TO YOU, I WONDER ABOUT THE NECESSITY SINCE YOU ARE ONLY DIRECTLY DESCENDED FROM 30 PEOPLE ACCORDING TO FINDAGRAVE GUIDELINES. ONE TRANSFER REQUEST CAME WITH A NOTE ABOUT ALL OF THE BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SHE HAD TO POST WHICH CONSISTED OF "THIS WAS MY FIFTH GREAT GRANDPAPPY WHO I LOVED VERY MUCH". THAT, SOMEWHAT SUSPECT, BIOGRAPHY COULD HAVE BEEN POSTED ON A FLOWER TRIBUTE. I RESEARCH ALL CORRECTIONS SUBMITTED TO ME FOR ACCURACY BECAUSE THERE IS A LOT OF MISINFORMATION AND FAMILY TREES WHICH ARE ALL MESSED UP ON RESEARCH SITES. ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS I HAVE BUILT TWO SEPARATE FAMILIES IN FINDAGRAVE SO THAT THEY WILL BACKFEED CORRECTLY INTO ANCESTRY. I AM TICKLED TO RECEIVE NEW EDITS AND LINKS, AND AM EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA EXCITED ABOUT PICTURES AND STORIES TO PERSONALIZE THE MEMORIALS. AND I AM EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA UNHAPPY WHEN PEOPLE TRY TO GET ME TO REMOVE INFORMATION IN ORDER TO REWRITE THEIR HISTORY TO PLEASE THEM.
I AM AN UNBIASED CARETAKER WILLING TO POST ALL THE DOCUMENTED INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE AND HAVE WORKED VERY CLOSELY WITH OTHER FINDAGRAVE MEMBERS FOR YEARS EXCHANGING INFORMATION TO HELP BUILD YOUR FAMILY HISTORY. MOST OF MY DIRECT ANCESTORS WERE BUILT BY AN EARLY PIONEER TO FINDAGRAVE WHO POSTED ALL OF THE INFORMATION I REQUESTED AND TAUGHT ME HOW TO DO IMBEDDED LINKS BEFORE THE RELATIONSHIP LINK FEATURE WAS ADDED. OVER TIME I HAVE TALKED HIM OUT OF A FEW OF THEM, BUT NOW SEEMS TO HAVE MOVED TO FLORIDA AND FOUND SOMETHING BETTER TO DO WITH HIS TIME. [I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU BERN] PUH-LEEZE DON'T OBSESS ABOUT OWNING THE MEMORIALS OF EXTENDED FAMILY.

Edith Winston
I am interested in updating information on my fourth great grandparents:
John and Edith Winston buried in the Winston Cemetery in Youngsville, NC on the Long Bay Elementary property.
It is my understanding that the graves are in poor condition but through my six years of research, I have their birth and death dates.
I would like to be able to add information to their find a grave pages and that can be done if you transfer my family pages to me. I've been a member of Find A Grave for six years and have 78 accounts.
You can reach me at:
twoshadesofblue2004@yahoo.com
Please subject it: Find A Grave John and Edith Winston.
Thank you so much for your help.
I read your lengthy information and say thank you. I am willing to forward the information I would like to add to their pages, if you want to maintain their pages. I would like to link them to my family for others in my family.
Thanks so much,
Peggy Kelley Mack

RE: Hall Otis Seals #46649774
Thanks...I found several headstones in that area that were moved from East Durham; none of them had dates on the stones. I found a reference in a 1937 list of cemeteries to East Durham cemetery (Col) "near East Durham airport", but haven't found anything else about it. Perhaps it was on land that became RDU. Just guessing.

Thank you so much for the names of his parents. I know it takes time to make edits, but I appreciate them so much! Future generations will thank us all for the extra work we do to make accurate, informative memorials. Again, thank you for taking the time to send me the new info.

Thank you for posting the information on YFE Harris (1815-1870), my wife's 3rd great grandfather.. I need proof that he is the son of William Harris (1792-1845) to complete my son's SAR application. If you have documented proof of that relationship I would be most grateful to receive it and pay any expenses. Again, many thanks for your assistance.

Cornelia Adaline "Nellie" Ward Murray- 123395519
I just fulfilled a photo request for the person referenced and her stone shows her name as PERMELIA A. WARD MURRAY as does her death certificate (I assume the "A" is Adaline) Your memorial for her shows her first name a CORNELIA, so please make that change. She was married to Lewis C Murray, but he does not appear to be buried at Maplewood even though there is an empty spot in their family plot. I could not find a NC death certificate for him to check where he is buried. I created memorials for their son William Guthrie Murray, his wife Lila Elizabeth Workman Murray, his two children Bertha and Bryant Murray. I already made the links on the memorials. THANKS!

James A. Pippin
I came across the find a grave page for James A. Pippin as I was researching my grandfather, Douglas Deland Seymour. My father is Glenn Douglas Seymour, son of Douglas. Douglas' mother was Edna Seymour Jones but the family has never known who his father was and their has always been speculation that James Pippin could have been. That's why your page intrigues me! Because we know we are ancestors of Charles Edgar Seymour - who was married to Anna Laura Creekmore - and had 5 kids (although I noticed a census last night list they had 6 kids) but Charles Edgar died of pneumonia in the early 1900's (1904?) at a pretty young age - Anna Laura put the kids in an orphanage and went to live with her parents.

At some point she met James Albert Pippin and the two of them went and got the kids out of the orphanage but one of the kids wanted to stay and finish high school, so he did (that was Robert). The kids and Anna Laura live with James Albert Pippin in the 1920 census and it looks like Anna has remarried and taken the Pippin last name. My grandfather was born in 1922 and his mother is Mary Edna Seymour (daughter of Charles Edgar and Anna Laura)who would have been around 16 when he was born.

Let me know if any of that is confusing but my question is where did the information come from that Seymour Douglas Pippin was Anna and James son? This might be the clue I am looking for! Thank you so much!
