Thank you for visiting my page and for all you do here at Find A Grave. I enjoy this website and have met new friends and distant cousins as a result. Thank you to everyone who has provided photos, links, and other information.
The vast majority of my memorials are relatives. Some close, some distant, others in between.
Please be sure to use the Edit tab, then the Suggest a Correction . . . link when requesting updates, transfers, links to family members, etc. This feature is designed to eliminate frustration on all parts due to misspellings, having to search through multiple memorials, etc. Unlike some, I will not ignore/delete your public message regarding the above without first contacting you, but please, please, please, use the proper avenue.
Find a Grave guidelines stating: "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren." are, in my view, just that. If you're more closely related than I and have information to add to a memorial, I'll more than likely transfer to you. Be sure to state your exact relation when requesting a transfer (if I request a transfer and forget to state my relation, please kindly let me know and I will do so).
It would be most appreciated if you would not post obituaries or death certificates as photos on any of my memorials. I'll gladly add the verbiage from an obituary minus the names of living relatives if you send me a link to it online or send it to me via the Edit tab. Also, please note that Find A Grave guidelines state you should not post biographical information via a Virtual Flower. I think it may partly be because the creator/manager of the memorial is not notified when a Virtual Flower is left, and may not run across this vital information for days, months, or even years.

Delia Barton Have added her death certificate. Will take it out when I hear from you. Thought you could make out the father's last name and also her mother. It has where she was born in Michigan, but thought you could make it out better than I can.
Also found a death certificate for Edwin Barton says his wife is Irene.
Mary Barton I know you will probably delete all my messages after this and all that I had asked is (do not know how this is disrespectful, as family members may want to see it also. But I see that you have not added the information and as soon as you do I will delete it.) So I will be the better person, It has been deleted.
Kucera @ Bennet Cem. Anna, I stopped by the Bennet Cem. on my way to another to see if a headstone had been added yet. She is now listed with a location but there is no headstone yet. There was a cement foundation placed, so they may be getting close. May have to wait til spring. I did not 'claim' your request, so it's still active. Just thought I'd let you know the current status. Janet
