Bio Photo Thank you Zinger for sponsoring Lieut Charles A. Hammond. Remember those who served and died for their country.

Find a grave is a DATABASE which offers the unique ability to add further information and photos.
Excluding cenotaphs, there is one deceased name listed and the final dispostion of the remains. Once a name is listed on this database, why come along and deliberately
add the same name as a 2nd or 3rd listing.
If 100 people had a sense of entitlement to list the same deceased person's name because they are related in some way, can you imagine how messed up this database would be.

Ancestry is a wonderful site for building family trees. Hundreds of people can list the same person. No problem.
If a family member is already listed on find a grave, be happy and please don't mess up the database by re-adding what is already there. If the listing is out of guidelines, put it in a virtual cemetery and use edit to add data.
Please show respect for the work of others and delete a duplicate name when requested to do so. Admin and others have enough to do. Thank you
Many are entered under BOTH maiden and married names. Dupes standing out in a cemetery are being dealt with. When I am finished each cemetery, admin will run the deduper.
Some memorials I manage are listed under either just a married or maiden names. Check both.


It has a name .... "VANDALISM" and it is a crime of which you can be charged.

So someone comes to your house and chalks the numbers so they can better read them
Someone chalks your vehicles licence plates because they are old and barely readable.
Someone thinks it's great to chalk your neighbours house with grafitti
Well you get the picture.

Elmer Hillier
Elmer Hillier 1903, St. David's Anglican Cemetery is the husband of Ruby (Ellen Knister) Hillier 1907, and the father of Norman (Harry) Hillier, both buried in St. David's.

I believe Elmer's death date is 1980, not 1904 as shown in Find-a-Grave.

I noted all you did was "transfer" the info that I had on my grandparent into your notes. These are my grandparents and I would appreciate having them transferred to me. I am there ONLY grandchild still living. Their names are CAROLINE EMILY TAYLOR and WILLIAM DUCKETT. I feel you really didn't have any right to remove my posting.

Thank you for your quick reply to my message.

I failed to adequately make my point which is, one of the main tenants for the existence of Find_A_Grave is to help people find their ancestors. It relies on members helping members and I would like to believe that if you found a memorial to one of your ancestors posted by someone else, you would want to manage it yourself. I am sure if you requested it be transferred to you, the person who originally posted it, wouldn't think twice to make the transfer.

In this case there are only two memorials. There is no reason that I am aware of why you wouldn't transfer them. And you are correct, I have no direct involvement but am just trying to be helpful.

I agree with you that the administration of Find_A_Grave should decide on the final outcome and that is the route Suzanne Whyte is going to follow.

Regardless, if there are any memorials for Lambton County that I have posted that you would like transferred, please let me know which ones they are. That does not include my immediate family, however.

Take care, stay safe, keep dry and stay warm.

RE: Willy/Willey
He was one of my Great Grandfather's older brothers. I am still trying to research on Barney to make sure he is buried at Holy Family and will let you know what I find out. I got his death certificate in the same place as you and it doesn't state where he is buried.

RE: Barney
Let me see if I can clear up some on the cemetery names: St. Joseph in Klacking Creek was changed to Holy Family several years ago. St. Joseph in West Branch has always been St. Joseph. West Branch Township has also been known as Campbell Corners (because that is where it is and it is also located in Klacking Township)and as Campbell Hills.I live in Ogemaw County and I know how confusing it can be. How are you related to the Willey/Willy clan?
