Bio and Links
Bio Photo Transfers under the following guideline. I've learned a long time ago you can't please everyone and I'm not going to try. For you who like to break the rules, don't waste your or mine time. If your request is outside my guidelines, I will ignore and delate your request.


Generation 1: your family -- Husband - wife - your children - son-in laws - daughter-in-laws - grandchildren.

Generation 2: your and spouse parents -- Father - Mother - aunts - uncles - 1st cousins - wives and hubands of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Generation 3: Grandparents - their siblings and their children -- huband and wife of siblings and children.

Generation 4: Great Gradparents - their siblings and their children - huband and wife of siblings and children.

NO transfers beyond the great-grandparents and NO transfers of Revolution Soliders or Civil War Soliders or Sailors.

This is a MUST!!! You have to tell me your RELATIONSHIP to the person you want transfered and PROVE if I shoud ask FOR proof. No transfer.

Don't waste my time with: I went school with...I do research for another person would you consider transfering...they were neighbors to my grandparents...I work with this person...they were my neighbors when I was a kid...just this once would consider breaking the rules...ect. ect. ect. If you are not related, forget it. My transfers go to family members who fall within the guide lines.

For you who think there should be no rules and should transfer every request that comes down the pipe, take it up with Find A Grave. They're the ones who set the rules.

CORRECTIONS: For you impatient persons who believe your request should be answered in a 24 hours period of time. Get Real! I may have 30 or 40 other requests before yours comes in. I do answered all corrections but it might take several day or weeks. I don't spent 24-7 at the computer. I know this is hard for you to believe but I do have a life outside the computer. I do have family and friends I spent time with, I have a part time job, yard ward, house keeping, grocery shopping, library research, visiting cemeteries for tombstones to photograph, searching cemeteries for requested tombstones and other chores that has to be do.

MY PERSONAL GOAL: My reason for joining Find A Grave is to presrve graves and their tombstones. That's where the bulk of my time on the computer goes, adding people and their tombstones. Corrections and tranfers are done when I can find extra time in the day. So if it takes me one or two months to answering your requests, so be it. Don't give me any guff, that if I can't keep up with the requests, I should transfer the memorials to someone who can. Get Real!! It won't happen!

James Bass
Isaac Bass born 1854 died 1917
I am trying to locate the grave of Isaac Bass, my great grandfather.
The directions on Find A Grave say that the Bass Cemetery is on highway 301 near Elm City, NC.
We drove all around and asked several people, but could not find it.
Do you have any more detailed directions you could share with us.
I would like to stand near his grave and reflect on his life as I have come to know him through my research.
Thank you very much.

Kate Warren Cemetery
Although his MODC does say he was buried in the City Cemetery in Osceola.
I was wrong about the last burials in the Cemetery...found 1 in 1959, and I'm not too proud to admit when I am wrong! :-)

His Missouri Death Certificate clearly states he was buried in Osceola Cemetery, Osceola, St Clair County Missouri. The old "Kate "Warren" Cemetery", I believe the last burials were in the 1920's. just FYI...

John Samples, Nancy Trimble Samples

My name is Chad Samples, and I am fairly certain that John and Nancy Trimble were my great-great-great-grandparents via their son Amos (Upsher County, WV). I wanted to thank you for maintaining their memorials, and would appreciate any help you can give in connecting me to some of their other defendants. My E-mail address is

Thank you again!

The Irish Lady
Crown Hill Cemetery- Elmer A Knatcal
Many thanks for getting Elmer's headstone onto Find A Grave. It's a great picture and it sure helps in verifying family info.

I wonder if you'd allow me to use the pic in the family research, with credit of course?

Mary Elizabeth Mishler
The memorial you have for this woman is incorrect. Please remove from the Freeman Cemetery. This is my great grandmother and the picture you have used is the picture I took of the headstone in the Rosebank Cemetery in Mulberry, KS. She and her husband are buried in the same cemetery as many of their children. Please make the corrections..

Frances "Fannie" Harrell # 38025432
I am trying to track down the first wife of George T Eldridge (1859-1931) from Henry, KY. A Fannie Harrell was the mother of a son Simon Aldridge (1883-1964) and twins who died in childbirth. I'm hoping you may have more information on this memorial; I can certainly provide more information.

Isaac Spencer Ellis, Sr.
I believe the name of the memorial you have created for Isaac Spencer Ellis, Sr. (married to Elizabeth McCord Spencer) is incorrectly named. I believe this should be a memorial to Isaac Ellis, (no middle name), son of Benjamin Ellis.
Isaac Spencer Ellis, Sr., I believe would be their son (married to Martha Shipley) and having his mother's maiden name as his middle name.
In addition, I also have a land grant deeded to Isaac Spencer Ellis, SR (and James Ellis)dated December 15, 1854, well after the death of Isaac Ellis (NMN).
Isaac Spencer Ellis, Jr. was married to Susan Howard.
Isaac Spencer Ellis, III, was married to Nancy Diana DeWitt
Thomas Spencer Ellis, married to Mattie Ellen Smith was my grandfather.
I know it is very confusing when names continued through multiple generations. Thank you for considering making this correction.

John E. Romine
I was wondering if you could link John E. Romine with Mary E. Romine. They were husband and wife and were my great grandparents. Paul Edgar Weldin is their grandson. Also my grandmother Esther Francis Weldin is buried I believe in this cemetery and is the mother of Paul Edgar Weldin.

Thanks for you help in this. You are doing a awesome job!
