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 HE 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.

|Steve||Robert Dickins #35952748|
The family bible contains a pencil annotation that he died in 1808. However, his descendants filed a petition in Person County court in the June session of 1804 requesting his lands be divided. The petition states that he died sometime in 1803. Here is a link to the petition images:

|Steve||RE: Jesse/Jessie Dickins/Dickens #35953104|
If you are interested I can send you the link to the will of Jesse's son Stephen Moore - who also used the spelling Dickins. I have not found his grave but his will is dated 1850 and matches his enumeration in the 1850 census. Regards, Steve.

As you requested I have posted a photo of Jesse's signature to his memorial. It clearly shows the spelling of his name in 1831. Additionally, Katherine Kerr Kendall's transcriptions of documents witnessed by Jesse consistently show this spelling throughout his term in office. If this answers your question, let me know and I will remove the photo from the memorial. This document is actually posted on ancestry.com. If you would like the link I'd be happy to provide it. Regards, Steve

|Jerry and Roger||RE: Bonnie Allen McLawhorn #141212664|
Thanks very much for the information. I will wait to hear back from you, Have a wonderful day, Jerry
I have information of where the cemetery is located where Barnett Howard(1857-1912) and others are buried.
Please contact me.
|Southwood||RE: Weller Family|
You can have all the Weller information.
I'd rather see someone find a grave for the
mother, Rachel Southwood. She is more likely
to be the daughter of Katherines brother, John
Southwood (1839-1862), but I cannot find
any records to prove who the parent was.
Might be graves of all of them in Chinn
and Sunset Hill Cemetery.
|Lloyd Castner||RE: Nellie Ransom Dayton #163048995|
My source was the Historical Outline of the Ransom Family of America written by Wyllis Ransom in 1903 page352. It states the Ellen Ransom and 4 other children were children of Ezra Ransom. Ellen was born Sep 17 1866 in Flint Michigan. No middle names was used.
I can send you a copy of that page if you wish to send me your mailing address. The book is also on line Ezra is my fourth cousin once removed. Very distant. I was on Ezra's memorial recently as I was given a photograph of him by my cousin. It is now on his memorial in Find a Grave
|Jason & Mitzie||RE: Pine Hill Cemetery, Alamance|
That's a real good question. I BELIEVE Pine Hill was integrated. There is a "Freeground" section that I assumed was the "Colored" section but there aren't too many folks buried there. I know the Northlawn Cemetery is in the more predominantly black neighborhood and I'm pretty sure it has been around for at least 50 years. If you don't find who you're looking for in Pine Hill I would try Northlawn second.
|Mickey Crimm||Mary Rogers Johnston|
After further reading Larkin Chew Johnston's quote"...was bur. by her brother John." I think this means that she was buried adjacent to him and not that he was the one that buried him.
BTW, John Rogers (1717-1797) was the oldest child of John Rogers (1680-1762) and Rachel Eastham (1685-1765) of King & Queen County, VA.
John Rogers (1717-1797)and Mary Rogers Johnston (1725-1800) had a couple of famous nephews. Their sister Ann Rogers (1728-1798) married John Clark and was the mother of Gen. George Rogers Clark "The Conqueror of the Northwest" and William Clark of the Lewis & Clark expedition.
|Mickey Crimm||Mary Rogers Johnston|
Hi. I have reason to believe my 7X great-grandmother, Mary Rogers Johnston (1725-1800) may be buried in the Rogers-Robertson Family Cemetery. Mary was the sister of John Rogers (1717-1797). Mary married Larkin Chew Johnston. Here is a quote from the Larkin Chew Johnston Bible, still in existence today:
"My wife Mary Johnston departed this life 10/25/1800...was bur. by her brother John at his place on Hico on Tues. after she died being kept out of the ground for four days according to her request. We lived together upward of 55 years in which time she brought me ten children eight of which is alive now - 1802."
This bit of information conflicts with John Rogers dying in 1797. But I presume that Larkin was referring to his brother-in-law's place being on the Hyco River.
Does Larkin's description of John Rogers place "being on Hico" fit the Rogers-Roberston Family Cemetery? Thanks for any information.
Great Falls, Montana
