Requests to other editors:

Please use the EDIT function on a specific memorial for ALL messages, requests, TRANSFERS, DUPLICATES, etc. concerning that memorial. For a transfer request please use the Edit button on the memorial, then Suggest and state your relationship, etc; this is the only way I'll handle it; otherwise your requests will go unanswered. Don't use the message board below for such things pertaining to a specific memorial.

All Messages and requests to me should be civil and polite. No sarcasm please!

Before starting a new cemetery: be sure to check to make sure the cemetery does not already exist.

Biographical information and obituaries should not be included in a virtual flower.

Think outside the box.

Please do not ask me to add unsubstantiated / unsourced claims that the person is related in some way to a famous person.

If you ask me to add info from the photo of a grave marker, especially an old one, please give me the exact dates, etc., that you want added, so that I am spared having to try to decipher the marker.

Transfer requests should be individual and specific and must be made by using the EDIT function on the memorial in question. If you are requesting a transfer based on relationship, please state that relationship and your full name. I am flexible on your connection to the person and will make transfers outside the guidelines at my discretion. I have been disappointed when I did make a transfer and the transferee did nothing to improve the memorial or even worse deletes what I have added.

No triangulated transfers. A triangulated transfer is when A asks for B to be transferred to C.

Historian and genealogist.

I have been doing genealogy on both sides of the Atlantic for over 27 years. My work on Find A Grave is NOT a hobby, but a service to others.

I majored in history at Duke, did graduate work in history at the Univ. of South Carolina, graduated from the Univ. of Florida Law School and practiced law for 30 years, much of it in the land title industry. I have an EFM certificate from the School of Theology, University of the South.

Through my mother, I am a ninth generation member of the Weybright (sometimes spelled Waybright) Family in America, a member of the First Families of Ohio and a direct descendant of Capt. Martin Weybright III, of the Lancaster County (PA.) Militia. who is on the DAR patriots list and paradoxically was a member of the pacifist German Baptist Brethren (Church of the Brethren). His father, Martin II and grandparents, Martin I and Margaretha, had arrived in Philadelphia in 1730 from Germany aboard the ship Loyal Judith and settled in Lancaster.

My grandfather, W E Durr, M.D. practiced in Glencoe, Ohio, from after World War I until his death in 1947. In the course of his practice, he delivered many babies, including my mother and one of my brothers. I have over 1,300 of his Physician's Birth Records, but these are probably many more records that I do not have. I put these birth records into 4 spiral bound books and gave the original books to the Ohio Genealogical Society's Library in Mansfield, Ohio, gave one copy to the Genealogical Section of the Hutton Library in Barnesville, Ohio, and kept one copy for myself.

Through my great grandfather, Cornelius "Neal" Rice (1844-1933), I am a member of Civil War Families of Ohio. During Sherman's March to the Sea, he was captured at Irwin's Crossroads, Georgia, taken to the county jail in Sandersville and then to the county jail in Milledgeville, then the state capital of Georgia. He escaped from the jail and walked home to Greenville, Ohio.

Through my father, I am a first generation American and a dual citizen of the USA and the Republic of Ireland.

Names in my family tree are: Calvert, Varty, Moore, Durr. Rice, Burgan, Weybright or Waybright, Koontz, Fetter, Mehring and lots more.

Places in my tree are Stuart and Bradenton, Florida; Belmont, Darke, Miami, Montgomery, Holmes & Wayne counties, Ohio; Carroll County, Maryland; Lancaster, Somerset & Adams counties, Pennsylvania; Eastern Massachusetts; Counties Armagh, Antrim, Down, Dublin & Monaghan, Ireland; the West Riding of Yorkshire, England; Southern Germany, and more.

Denominations in my tree include Episcopal, Christian Science, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, Moravian, German Baptist Brethren (Church of the Brethren}, Roman Catholic, etc.

Places I've lived, worked or spent time in are Manatee, Alachua, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie & Indian River counties, Florida; Suffolk, Norfolk, Middlesex, Worcester & Plymouth counties, Massachusetts; Belmont, Darke, Montgomery & Erie counties, Ohio; Rutland County, Vermont; Chautauqua County, New York; Durham County, North Carolina; Richland & Sumter counties, South Carolina; Counties Armagh, Antrim, Down, Dublin & Monaghan, Ireland; London, England; etc.

I have made changes per your request. I have no connection to this family - would you like for me to transfer this memorial to you?

RE: Capt Raymond J Bartow
Thank you Martin, for writing the biography and making the memorials for my grandparents. I am new to Find a Grave and I am very happy to see my grandparents there. I live in CO now so I can't visit their graves like I use to. My mother passed away 2012 and we took her ashes to Oak Lawn in PA to bury next to her brother. That's when I got pictures of the families graves and just put now them on Find a Grave so they are all linked up. Anyway, it's great what you do.
Best regards,
Gail Starr
