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.

Annie Joyner Tingen # 51766357
Hello Friend, Thanks for adding Annie Joyner and her husband Owen Tingen to Find A Grave. Annie is the sister to my grandfather James Monroe Joyner. (My brother who passed on 1/4/13 was named James Robert Monroe Joyner) I would like to have Annie transfered to me. If you check me out you will see that I only do family except for the old cemetery that the church has asked me to do in Halifax County, NC. I have been a member for over 13 years. I would like to connect Annie to her other brothers and sisters. I see where Helen Sharpe has that her parents had 10 children. This is untrue. They only had 9. On the census a cousin to Annie was listed as a child to John Richard and Susan Rackley Joyner. If you will please transfer Annie to me I would like for you to come back to check out the information that I will be adding. We will be having a Joyner Family Reunion 9/14/14 at White Oak Baptist Church out side of Nashville, NC. We all share what I have found during the year. Three ago we cleaned up the Old Homestead Family Cemetery and had a celebration for 7 Joyner Brother that served in the Civil War together. 2 of the brothers died. Both of them are buried in Virgina.
Thank you

Pennell family cemetery
Greetings Sir,
My question relates to the the location of the cemetery for a memorial you created for 134507962. I am looking at old WPA records. I am trying to determine if that record and this cemetery are the same. The directions given [1941] Take Highway #90 from Taylorsville go west for about 9 miles, turn right and the cemetery is about 2.5 miles on a country road north of the highway. I have a Charlie and Lester Pennell as buried here. Could this be the same cemetery?

Christine Robinson Fowler
Thanks for the updates on Christine. She and Hardy Fowler were married in Johnson Co, NC on 3 Sep 1962. Christine at the time of her death was a teacher in the city of Durham, NC.

Brothers:
1) Dennis James Robinson was born 31 Aug 1913 in Magnolia, NC. I think he was in the Army and is buried at Fort Riley, Kansas.
2) Andrew James Robinson was born 25 Mar 1925 in Mt. Olive, NC. He married Geralene Daniel in Durham on 26 July 1957. I have an obituary for Geralene who died in 1997. She was a teacher and died in New Jersey. No place of burial is mentioned.
3) Randolph Robinson was born 28 Oct 1923 in Mt. Olive, NC.

Ava & John Tenney
These 2 names were added by you to the Springfield Cemetery...both names were not in ELHA's 1977 Cemetery Records...not saying they're not there, they could be in any number of unmarked graves. The obits are proof enough. My photo of John Ovedier's headstone, Ava's 1st husband is located on the back side entrance to the cemetery, directly behind his are some unnamed brick tombs...possibility theirs?

Ada Rebecca Tenney - 53006797
Dr. John Tenney - 53002704
John Ovedier - 15079318
