Bio and Links
I appreciate those who have contributed memorials, even when the memorials they've added aren't relatives....or even acquaintances. I've certainly benefited from many of these submissions. These submissions have also played a part in genealogy research I've done for friends.

At this point, most of the memorials I've added have been because of a personal (and emotional) connection (family, friends or on behalf of friends).
Update, OCT. 2014: I have recently added some memorials for individuals I don't know and am not related to. In general, when searching Find a Grave for my friends or family members occasionally my attention may have been drawn to something: it might have been an unidentified baby, family members not linked, and/or missing dates for birth or death (there are so many of them!) Fortunately, many of these problems were resolved often after doing some research and then sending edits (or bios). In some instances I did create some memorials for individuals that are are not known to me - either as family member or friend. I'll be glad to consider transfers (outside FaG guidelines) - just ask!
March 2015 - still here. Not adding much these days - I think I've lost yet another memorial (that I had included obit and supplemental info with) - likely to a merge. There are FAG'ers that focus on being 'the first' to create a memorial, and that's it. No links, no obits, no details. Yes, I know I can send edits, but then I have to monitor if they accept or reject the edits, etc. They will click 'accept' and yet not enter the info. Or reject for whatever reason. Or - just not do anything. I was hoping when ancestry took over FAG that since ancestry's purpose is genealogy, that they would encourage more than basic stats in memorials. In cases where I've added memorials or info to memorials of those I don't know it's been with an eye to genealogy - to provide info to researchers ... just hasn't worked out real well.
I DO have to comment I have had contact with some like-minded, really pleasant, helpful contributors and I really, really appreciate you and your efforts.

Some corrections : Dr. martin's wife was Dora Elizabeth Field. His daughter's name was Zuelmma Gemmell Martin or Mrs. Frank Gunter.

William Thiemeyer.
If there is a duplicate memorial for Mr. Thiemeyer than please contact me through my e-mail address at and let me view it before I delete the one I have for him. I'm sorry to post this in your public message area but I found no other way to contact you.
Thank you for giving to Find A Grave.

Thank you so much for the transfers!!! I swear I am not a hoarder and know how frustrating it can be to do the research, submit suggestions/corrections to people who either don't care or who are no longer active. I've had a few run-ins with these types myself and it is a pain. Adding the obits was super helpful and I'll keep an eye out to find the cemeteries someday, and appreciate you giving these to me to maintain. :)

Samuel is my great-great uncle and Ella is a cousin and have to admit that I am not in the guidelines for a transfer. I really appreciate you offering though, and all your hard work, including adding bios and linking, has not gone unnoticed by me!

I just wanted to thank you for making these memorials. It is very useful to be able to link family together and cemeteries can always be added later on. I have committed the 'sin' of creating a few of these myself. :) I look at them as a work in progress, and also as a reminder to keep searching. I am aware that people don't always like it and the findagrave police are always quite happy to make themselves known.

RE: Memorial - Birth Year
There was absolutey no sarcasm in the message I sent. It was merely to point out the reason that I suggested you should correct the birth date. And I do not "monitor this cemetery just looking for problems ....." I was adding memorials, and found that you had already added one for this person. Talk about sarcasm ..... !!

McKinnies, Hunter

Wow what fact-filled bio! I've transferred management of these two to you so you can add the bio and any future details you may have. They are not related to me, and you clearly know them. I'm sure you understand that I am not comfortable adding information that I do not know personally.
Cheers, Audrey

The Wells family is not my family. I only have information that was found on the stone or in OBIT's that I may have read. So I am no help in untangling the mystery.
