Family & Friends,

I will be glad to make corrections, additions and add links.

I am not collecting grave-sites, so if I've posted a memorial for someone who belongs to you, then I would be happy to make a transfer.

Please note that copying any of my information and photographs, then posting it on other websites (i.e.- makes me quite unhappy. It also violates the stated rules of all respectable websites. And irregardless, it is a violation of copyright laws... hence, illegal.

I am finding so much of my own material stolen and re-posted on other websites with the violator taking credit for my research. I have even had one 'advanced' reseacher tell me she regards all material free for the taking, "no matter the source". That has been dealt with.

I am actively working to have these violations remedied. Most of these are occurring on, which is no surprise.

If anyone sees a photograph I took, and wishes to add it to their family tree on or add it to their private family tree, just ask me. It is the right thing to do. And it makes things so much nicer.

Please help Mr. Terry from being unhappy. Thank you. #:^)

Much success to all.

Best Wishes,

RE: Dumer Family - edits received
Hi, Terry.
I am not related to this family - Find A Grave is a hobby of mine. I especially enjoy "linking" the families back together.

I forgot to mention that my ancestors, the Wardens once owned a lot of the property where Skelton is now.

Hi Terry,

Hope you are having a nice weekend! Thank you so much for transferring that memorial to me, I wouldn't change a thing on it though, you do nice work. I have now learned from your example, how to post links, and I'm loving it! I wish I could get people to accept my edits for it though. I have a lot of extra work to do now to the memorials that I maintain!

Unfortunately, I miss the seasons, because I'm in sw Florida. We had a cold front come through early this morning from that line of storms that just crossed the country and our high today is only going to be 84...ugh. Down from 90's though. I'm not a hot weather person, and really do miss the seasons, but we are kind of rooted here now. I grew up in Beckley and have tons of family there, so I'm sure we will be crossing paths again.

Thanks so much for your assistance!

RE: Nancy Adline Sowder Hall
Love the updates! The page is very attractive, especially with the links to the death certicate and register, instead of pictures, which do not enlarge enough to read. I need to learn how to do those links, and work on my own memorials.

Thank you for the information. I'm always looking for extra tidbits for my family tree.

Many thanks for your kind (and your funny) words. I do like to add genealogical info to memorials. I didn't use to and hated cluttered memorials but then realized I was fortunate enough to afford Ancestry when others couldn't. So I clutter mine now with whatever I can find to help researchers! I would love to go cemetery hunting. I am pretty free except for volunteering to work at public library book sale first 2 weeks of Oct. I can work around those dates too- or you could come move loads of books too! Anxious to here which cemeteries you want to do.

Terry, you have posted several memorials to this cemetery in Wayne County. If you have been there personally, can you give directions on how to find it? Thanks, Judi Wilson

RE: Madge Click Prince -photo request
And again, you are most welcome, Terry. Make sure you check out Alethia Minerva Prince (died 1886) we added a photo of her stone as well.
