NEWLY AVAILABLE ON ANCESTRY "VIRGINIA DEATH RECORDS 1912-2014" ALSO TEXAS DEATH RECORDS HAVE RECENTLY BECOME AVAILABLE ON ANCESTRY AND FAMILY SEARCH.
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.

|michael moyle||Asa Jackson Owens|
Hi My Name is Michael T Moyle and I wanted to put in a request to manage Asa Jackson Owens Memorial, at Stanly Gardens of Memory. He is my Grandfather and I really would appreciate the opportunity to maintain that. I have not been active on find a grave for long, but would like to maintain my immediate Family's Information. Thank You, Mike

Memorial #40572530 The write up on Nancy says "Stone is difficult to read,,,,,etc." Did you happen to take a photo of the tombstone? If so, could you please either post it to Find A Grave or sent it directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks so much for all you do for everyone.

|Estelle Clark||Clements family in Maplewood|
I photographed three graves in the 6 person plot in Maplewood (Sec g plot 973) and posted pics as follows: Romulus, his wife Lucy Ann, and son Ralph. Ralph's memorial lists no birth/death dates (shown as "unknown") but they are clear on the marker if you'd like to add them to the memorial. There are three others buried there, but their graves are all unmarked 8-(
|Natalie Rose||More Info?|
I've been developing a deep interest in a lot of the people buried in the Old Chapel Hill cemetery and want to know more about them. I'm not family, but I'm just curious to know more. To get photos, if available, to learn more about their cause of death, etc.
Do you know how I would go about this? A lot of these graves seem maintained (like the grave of Sarah Green Utley Burkhead that has an herb garden in front of it) and many of the figures likely belonged to prominent families, so I'm just wondering why it's so hard to find any additional details.
I've sat by the grave of Robert Finley Baird, a UNC student like me who suddenly died of an unspecified illness at 20 years old. I desperately want to put a face to the name.
I'm sorry if I sound naive and uninformed, because I really am. You may not be even the right person to ask, but I'm just not sure where to begin on my quest since I don't have a familial 'claim'--just a burning curiosity to know more about the names that surround me when I'm studying and reflecting in the cemetery.

I have resolved the discrepancies in Mabel Tucker's #23379762 memorial information because I have her death certificate and she is definitely the youngest child of Robert Lee and Minnie Strickland Tucker. She was born March 1, 1914 and died March 13, 1925. The death certificate shows her father as R. E. Tucker (R. L. Tucker is correct) and mother as Mamie Strickland (Minnie Strickland is correct). Informant on the death certificate is Mrs. R. L. Tucker.
I cannot determine why she is not showing up on the 1920 census. We feel like she probably was staying with one of her married brothers or sisters at the time the census was taken. Also, my mother reminded me that at the time the 1920 census was taken, Robert Lee Sr. was dying with tuberculosis and that may have a bearing on this.
This is the obituary for Robert Lee Tucker from the November 22, 1906 Durham Morning Herald:
"Robert Lee Tucker, 17 years of age, died at his home on Franklin St., East Durham, yesterday morning at an early hour. He had been ill for some time and typhoid fever was the cause of his death. He left father, mother and several sisters. The burial took place in Maplewood Cemetery yesterday afternoon. The funeral being conducted from the home at 3 o'clock."
|Cindy Shepherd Trinks||RE: Robert L. Tucker 63027437|
Thanks for making the updates to this memorial. I've spent a good deal of time unraveling the mystery of what actually happened to my grandmother's brother at age 17. I found his obituary in the Nov. 22, 1906 edition of the Durham Herald newspaper. He died of typhoid fever according to the obituary. My mother says my grandmother called her brother "Buddy" and grandma also said no one knew where he was buried. I found a Robert L. Tucker buried in Maplewood cemetery in Durham, NC with no marker, just that he was "age 17 years" according to the cemetery's records. Grandma always said Buddy was 17 when he died. The obituary said he was buried in Maplewood so I knew I had solved the mystery. I submitted an edit to put "Buddy" as his nickname. I thought I would explain that. Buddy would have been my great uncle.
