POSTED ON FIND A GRAVE WITHOUT MY PERMISSIONS. IF PERMISSION IS GIVEN, PLEASE GIVE ME CREDIT FOR MY WORK. Using, taking, copying, retouching and/or enhancing any photograph that you yourself did not take, constitutes violation of Find a Grave Copyright Rules.


Please DO NOT post death certificates on any of my memorials. I feel a memorial should be to honor a person's life. If the date, parents are incorrect on the death certificate than what is listed in birth records are other sources, people begin contacting me to change the info listed on the memorial to match what is on the DC. As we all should know DC, tombstone have mistakes.

If requesting a transfer, PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAP, and tell me how you are related. Transfer requests should be for direct relatives only within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Non-direct relatives such as aunts, uncles, cousins and more are not required transfers.

I do not link memorials to unknown burials.

Here is Kendel's record for Cora. This is from you click to go to it than Eileen's memorial pops up. When you put in Kendel's number in the search bar on Find A Grave you will get the message about it being merged.

RE: Cora E Banks memorial
I DID NOT DELETE MY FIRST MEMORIAL-I don't know why you insist that I did. Why would I delete it when I was working on it and trying to make out the stone. Yes, I was so mad that I did set up another memorial for her but have not done anything else to it-like link it to her Father, etc. Did you search the memorial number like I told you to?

And I have no idea how it works when Find A Grave merges memorials-they can not show two people setting it up so it would only show Eileen if it was merged with her memorial. I am sure when Find A Grave merges two as one than one memorial is deleted. That would make sense and that is what happened to mine and to Kendel's. I only found out about Kendels when I was on Ancestry and I clicked the Find A Grave link that they showed and it stated that it had been merged and if you click on this spot it takes you to the one it was merged to.

Death is certain but unfortunate for all. It's nothing to be mad over. Have a great day.

I think Arnold went by Johnie listed with step-father surname. I followed Harlan and it looks like he was her neighbor in 1910, single, living with his mother.

You said you were related to Banks. I worked for about 4-5 years building a Banks tree on Ancestry for a friend. Put in many an hour at the courthouse in Wolfe County checking out deeds, etc. That is what got me into doing Find A Grave as I found relatives that the person had no idea he had family buried there and that was when I photographed all the various Banks Cemeteries in the Calaboose. Just thought I would share this info with you. I am sure some of your family is on the tree that I did.

RE: Cora E Tester Banks
PS: Yes, it is the same person as is buried in Evans. It is the same person that Kendel recorded when he walked that cemetery many years ago. His memorial was also deleted (#142643516) and merged with Eileen's memorial.
As I said I was still working on the memorial when it up and vanished and when I checked my memorial # I got the notice about it being merged with Eileen's. As far as I know Find A Grave is the only ones that can do that.

RE: Cora E Tester Banks
You put this memorial #165908167 in the Find A Grave search box and see what pops up. I have no reason to lie about it and Find A Grave is the only one that could merge that memorial with Eileen's. As I said I was working on the memorial when it vanished. You explain that.

RE: Cora E Tester Banks
Kendel did originally list her and the memorial was deleted and merged just like mine was. I was working on my memorial yesterday when BAM-it was gone. As far as not having birth dates on my memorial, I was still working with all the photos I had trying to figure out exactly what it said. I don't just take one photo of old stones-I take several so I have a better chance of making out all the writing. Had finally figured out the Dec. As far as someone contacting you about why Cora was listed in two cemeteries, all you had to do was explain to her that she had a stone in two different cemeteries. I still feel that the cemetery recording is for the stones in the cemetery as much as it is for the people buried there. All that had to have been done was put a note on the memorials stating that she also had a stone in blah blah cemetery which is what I had suggested to Eileen about the time my memorial disappeared.

Notate her memorial as a cenotaph in the note section. Thanks.
