I live in Arizona and have been interested in genealogy and family history for many years. I have been using Find A Grave for quite while and found it especially helpful on a research trip I took to Michigan in April 2008. That trip really got me thinking - and knowing that all my tombstone pictures will get tossed after I die - I decided to start participating!
I am contributing in hopes of helping others who may be searching for names in their family tree. If you have additional information or corrections - please contact me. If I have made a memorial for your direct relative and you'd like it transfered to you, just ask.
RE: Willis Charles Wilcox date error Sadawga Thank you Denise. Wow, you are really fast! I am new to Find a Grave, but I have some information to contribute re: Wilcox/Cotter and may want to take over the Memorial when I get up to speed. Willis Wilcox built log cabins on Lake Memphremagog, Canada for prominent American social reformers and I wanted to fix the date and birthplace ASAP for future researchers. Thanks again. John Atkin

Thanks I just signed up for "Find A Grave" and see you added info on my father, Robert A Franz, buried at Woodlawn in Deshler, OH. Thanks so much. I hope to add info. on other family/friends once I get use to this site. Thanks again.
Hattie M. Curtis Arnold hello, I sent you a edit for Hattie's name. Her father's first name was Curtis and last name Graves. The death certificates only lists his first name, but it should be Graves. Thanks!

Transfer of the Gildersleeves Hi Denise, I am the great great granddaughter of Emma Gildersleeve and her husband Lee. I was hoping to get their memorials transferred to me. I am currently working on our family history and have been gathering information. I have also submitted DNA and talked my father and his brother into doing so as well and we are connecting to relatives all over! This is all so new and exciting for me!! I have been making progress for the last two years and hope to continue until I no longer am able to!! I truly do thank you for the work you have done for my family and for others as well!! Thank You, Hydee
Lorenzo Wickliffe Smith site I really appreciate people like you who have seized the opportunity to do good. I would like to manage this site as I am one of their children.
