RE: Gravely line-your written bio
Rebecca, I tried to copy and paste what you posted to my profile about the Gravelys, but it kept saying that I was copying too much and it could not be pasted. Would you mind re-sending the info to my email, so I can keep a copy. Thanks so much for your trouble.

Gravely line
Heavens, don't be sorry. My husband does have a direct ancestor there in Henry Co, but it is way back. We have visited the area and even talked to Desmond, the local county historian. And I do have a bunch of Gravelys from Henry Co. in my database, but I just haven't done much primary research other than visiting the cemeteries there. I am interested in any new info, but just not making time to do it myself since it is extended family. Do let me know anything new you learn. Sally and I keep in contact as well. Diane

I don't have any data about the Captain part either. So Capt. of what is the question...military? Captain of a ship? Maybe Sally knows. I haven't done too much research on the Gravely clan as my husband's Gravely left Virginia and the spelling changed to Gravlee.

Thanks for the update. I have also updated Sally Parker, who is a Ben Franklin Gravely descendant and will want to have he & his wife & descendants transferred over to herself.

Thanks so much for the sample of how to get Find A Grave to do the transfers. Good to know.

Rebecca, you have just handed me some great news, not that hearing of someone's death should be good, but deegraver was not an accurate or pleasant Find A Grave contributor. She caused more problems that I can ever relate to you. She tended to just put people in cemetery whether she had any source for it. And I'm not the only one with this opinion. So where she got the info about George being a Captain, I do not know. He may well have been a Capt., but I don't have that info from my Gravely/Gravley/Gravlee research. I will have to look to see about some of deegraver memorials to see if there are some I can have transferred over to myself. Let me know if I can be of further help to you.

Can't tell you much about the tombstone. There was a notation on his memorial about his stone being broken. I am not sure where that info came from, but deegraver should be able to tell you that. Maybe there was a cemetery survey done?? Anyway, we visited Henry County on a trip in Oct 2014 and went to the cemetery where Capt. George Gravely is buried. We searched the entire cemetery, which isn't that big. There was no broken stone laying anywhere, so I asked deegraver to added to the bio that the broken stone was not found in October 2014. I am assuming that it was either removed or was so crumbled that it just disappeared. Don't think we will solve this mystery.

Hi Rebecca,
On a long shot I thought that I would write you in regards to my Dyer surname.
My ancestress is NANCY RECTOR DYER-She was born Nov. 3, 1793 in ? Kentucky. She married JOSHUA WASHINGTON LAW in Aug. 17, 1815 in Greene County, TN.
I have no parents for her and was wondering if you have run across any information that may have seen regarding Nancy. If perhaps you do, I can provide further information on her and her children with Joshua W. Law. Thank you for your time.

I went & looked at the original obit from the funeral home, It has her name as Cindy, not Cinda and the obit also has her brother as Joseph, so some family member of hers had to haven given it to the funeral home wrong if there is a mistake.
I added the edited obit myself before I transfered it to him. I always take out personal addresses, charities, visitation, grandchildren names, etc and all other useless info on all obits. Some of them obits goes on for ever.
Actually they are not supposed to be put on f-a-g, but I do it as many others & most of the time I put Edited if I change or take out anything.

I will have to check. I transfered it to Sam, some older family members cared for her, he may have added it. I got the obit from Scott Funeral home, Chatham, I always take out personal addresses, charities and most useless info. Some of them damn obits go on for ever.
Yes, they drive you up the wall on edits, some days I get 40 to 60, and a lot is for periods, silly stuff. One I won't do and ignore is marker inscriptions, most have them in plain site on the photos & I add lots of info in bios if I can.
