Bio Photo The Key To Any Puzzle Is Laying Down The First Piece...... ~Lorie

That is my philosophy when it comes to my FAG contributions.

In my travels, I have seen many different methods, processes and preferences among the FAG members and everyone is entitled to the way they do things - as long as it is historically sound. I am a 30 year data integrity nut and also a family history freak. Find a Grave is my NIRVANA!!!
Personally, I love data mining and enjoy scouring large (I mean LARGE) lists of cemetery & burial records, scouring and scrubbing, and then posting. I have a low tolerance for onesy-twosy memorial creations simply because there are so many of them out there and I ain't gettin' any younger.

Like so many other folks, I came to FAG looking for my family members and thanx to the generosity of others, I was able to locate alot of family. That is where my philosophy and my methods come from when I create memorials. If I can give someone at least a starting point on their family, then I have done good. To those folks who dig and dig to find every tidbit of information – I applaud you for it – that's just not my cup of tea.

So, remember, everyone has their own way of contributing to this great site and should never be made to feel inferior because they don't do it the same way you do. As long as it's right –

If you have a correction or find a duplicate, let me know(and please be patient for results).
If you want to "own" it, just ask (include all numbers)
And if you think that I haven't added enough information – byte me

Good Day Lorie... disregard my last message, I discovered that Etta was married to a Strumbeck and that this is a correct photo and memorial.

headstone picture

Good Day Lori,
You added a headstone picture for a Find-a-Grave memorial for Etta Edele Denny Landon Strumbeck. Etta Denny Landon is a relative and I am curious if you know how this Headstone is attributed to her. The Strumbeck name is not familiar to me. The info in the memorial appears to be correct but the headstone and Strumbeck name is a mystery.

Carolyn no longer accepts messages so I am hoping you might have some insight.
Thanks in advance… Jim Nygard

Thank you
I must say, I love your profile. So many truths and I wish other members would read it and realize Find A Grave is a hobby not a job.

Find A Grave has their own rules, as members we do not need to list them on our profiles.
Well done!
Thank you and have a great 2017

Francis J Layman
Lorie, I tried to message "Yandeau" but it seems messages have been disabled. There are only two Laymans shown on the OCFA site for Atherley Cemetery - Francis J Layman and a Margaret H. (Cramp) Layman. Since this memorial was created in Sept 2012 I'm wondering if you might have any detail on Margaret. I'm been looking for a Francis (Frank) J Layman who was born in 1875 and who I thought was buried in Kingsville, but evidently wasn't, and I'm thinking perhaps this Atherley Layman is he, having possibly remarried after his first wife died in 1941.

Error of parentage
Delia Bratcher Sullivan memorial #41458087 in Dry Creek Cemetery Lynn Arkansas was the daughter of Amos J Bratcher and Melissa J. Ratliff Bratcher. Not his second wife Temperence. I have a photograph of this whole family when Delia was a baby laying in Melissa's lap. Would appreciate this correction so it does not mislead any of our fellow genealogists. Thanks

Transcription error; FAG #99373641 & 99373642
There is a transcription error for both Memorial 99373641 - Paul Blair Skilliter and memorial 99373642 - Perry Blaine Skilliter. Both Paul and Perry are still alive (as of this date 18 Aug 2016). Paul and his twin brother Perry were born 26 Sep 1962. We believe his parents Gerald B Skilliter and Noreen Amilia Skittiter (nee Acton - b 1933 d 2014) pre-arranged for gravestones upon their birth. They are still living with their father, Gerald. I have submitted corrections to; please take corrective actions on Find A Grave. Thank you. Terry

Find A Grave Memorial# 36587291
You have a link to her husband "Jessie H Brown" Find A Grave Memorial# 36586776. Jesse was my grandfather (my mother's father) and his first name is "Jesse" and is pronounced as "Jess." I have asked the owners of his entry to correct it to the actual spelling of his name. I tried to contact the owner of Mary Elizabeth Hope Brown's entry, but they have their messages turned off. Since you created the original, I am hoping that you can update the link once the spelling is corrected.
