****************************
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.
******************************
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.

Memorial #106427650
You have Floyd Dewitt Kennett listed as a Child in this memorial. The following is information on Floyd Dewitt Kennett. Birth 12-16-1901, Death 10-14-1959. Place of death Richmond, VA.

I have been looking for place of burial with no success. Floyd was the stepfather to my wife who is also deceased. Floyd and Lula had 4 children which 3 are deceased.

E.A.E. Scott
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1951-26684-16530-46?cc=1911121&wc=93GG-RMT:183209001,183204002,193103201 shows loose estate record of all her heirs. I can not be sure but I believe since her estate and all(?) her family where in NC the E.A.E. Scott of Arkansas should not be linked to North Carolina Scotts.

Transfer of Memorials
Good evening I was wondering if you could transfer the following memorials to me as they are those of my great grandparents.

#72700805 Ottie Cotten
#72701394 Zora J Stephens Cotten.

Ottie was my great grandfather, his son James Carlton was my grandfather and his son Ronald was my father.

Thanks

Charles Scott
I have deleted E. A. E. Scott 68967036 (1829 - 1884) of Arkansas as his wife I have found in loose estate records that E. A. E. Scott died in 1885, Burke county, NC.

Charles L.H. S. Scott
Greetings, This is a tangled knot of families. You sent me edits for 112577271, Charles Scott. There are a couple of online family trees that list Charles L.H.S. Scott as having been born in Sand Hill, Auvergne, Jackson County, Arkansas. However the memorial I have, you want edits for parents that died in NC. He died in NC. His wife that I have linked him to, died in Sand Hill, Auvergne, Jackson County, Arkansas. 2 daughters currently linked to him have census records that say Charles was born in NC. I am at a loss. Can you provide proofs that the E. A. E. Scott 68967036 is this Charles' wife? She appears to have been still in NC on the 1880 census. Can you provide proofs that Thomas Scott 38564610 was this Charles' Father?
