Bio and Links
Bio Photo Many of my & other family members photos I uploaded to Find A Grave are cropping up in individuals family trees on Ancestry and other programs on the web. No mention of where or how they got them let alone who they belong to.

DO NOT download & re- post any of my photos anywhere. Period. If you have done this then Remove them immediately. These photos do not belong to you.

Follow Find A Grave guidelines prior to requesting memorial transfers. NO EXCEPTIONS

I had one person who in late 2014 who within a month's time send me over 650 SAC's. This wannabe FAG cop went through my entire file looking for any and every thing they THOUGHT might be wrong including names engraved on markers. They fired off SAC's as fast as they possible could with no knowledge whatsoever of these people. In the end & after several days with many research hours there were only a handful of meaningfully edits

Find A Grave offered little to no help. Still today they condone people sending these SACS. Anyone with malice could simply destroy thousands of memorials in a short period of time. Simply, if the contributor does not see the SAC or act on it quickly Find A Grave, now Ancestry, will force the edit reghardless even if wrong.

Don't come at me & start quoting the rules on how memorials are suppose to be. My work on this web site is exactly as i want it. I could care less what you think or want it to be!!

If you don't like what i have done here simply change the channel!.

On the other hand, for those decent contributors out there and yes there are still a few left, if you have info to add to the bios or family links then by all means let me know.

This project started out as a blessing for me by preserving memories of our loved ones.

Mary Elizabeth Miller Boruff Butcher Hansard

Sorry I mixed up the order of husbands, first was Hansard, second was Boruff and third was Miller. Thought right order and typed wrong order.

Marty Elizabeth Miller Boruff Butcher Hansard
Mary Elizabeth's maiden name was Butcher not Miller. Miller was one of her three husbands. Her first husband was Samson Boruff, second husband David Esau Miller and third husband Thomas Jefferson Hansard. I suggest that the order of her husbands should be changed and her maiden name listed as such.

Thank you,

Richard Lee Tharpe
Thank you Mr. Sanford for all your work. I never knew I could go to a site and see my relatives grave markers until I saw one of your pictures on the Union County Cemetery Association page. I used information you provided to trace my ancestry and found out so much.

I have one question. I see that Richard Lee Tharpe was buried in Bucher Cemetery. I know his headstone/grave marker fell down & isn't there now. But, I read in a book that a bronze plaque was ordered in 1988 to replace the headstone. I live in Omaha, but recently I came back home for a visit. I tried to find something at the cemetery with his name, but I was unsuccessful. Do you happen to know if there is such a marker? Or do you know who I would need to contact to find out the burial plot number or location within the cemetery where he is buried?

Again, thank you so much for all you have done!

Curious that you have him listed as Taylor Bass. Any reason?

RE: Turner Cemetery #2
Thank you for letting me know I will double check this and make sure these are not duplicates. The names tend to be changing over times and people do not realize if the "County" records are not changing that the names of the cemeteries are supposed to stay the same as well. I will make sure of this thank you
