Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi everyone,
What a great site Find-A-Grave is. Ive been doing Genealogy since the 60's and my travels have taken me to many places. I started trying to do my family tree by asking my father if he had information on his (Cross) family. Naturally he said no, but I eventually found a large box with 73 old pictures, some old diaries and papers with brittle paper tape on them and lots of writing.. It was wonderful and I have been filling in the blanks ever since. My grandmother had attempted Genealogy back in the 1800's and gave me many clues on those old papers..
I am a Registered Nurse and since my retirement I'm trying to put whole cemeteries on Find-A-Grave. Many of the Memorials I have submitted are not my relatives. I just thought they might help someone. I am happy to transfer or update any who are not related to me but are related to you.. However please use the Edit button on the Memorial and follow the FAG guidelines for transfers you wish to receive. Some people have not done that and leave off important data so I have not been able to transfer them.
Thanks for creating this site.
Eleanor Koepke

Coquigne's too
Hi again, I wonder if you would also transfer Sepha Coquigne Tupper to me? Anybody that you have with the surname Coquigne - basically anywhere in MI - belongs to my family! Thanks again. Mary Ann

Gillespie's in Bristol Cemetery
The message you sent today says Torrey's? I hope you don't have me mixed up with somebody else. From what I can tell there are 14 Findagrave memorials for the surname GILLESPIE in Bristol Cemetery in Flint, MI and all of them are my relations. I very much appreciate you transferring them to me so I can correct a few things and start adding more about their lives. Thank you. Mary Ann

Gillespie's in Bristol Cemetery
I wrote to you about a month ago asking if you would transfer ownership of the memorial for Howard Gillespie to me. Howard was my grandfather, and I would like to correct the incorrect birth date that is listed as well as add more info and pictures about his family. I would also like to request Eliza J. Gillespie, my grandmother, and probably any other Gillespie in Bristol Cemetery you manage is related to my family. I sure would appreciate you transferring my Gillespie family to me so we can upgrade their memorials. Many thanks!

Eleanor, In looking for my 'v' relatives I have noted many duplications from your entries January 2014. I have sent edit messages suggesting deleting but several have additional information that would be very helpful on the prior entry if you have time and inclination.

The Van Von Vonder Vander names are always difficult so when I am looking for my Dutch relatives, I look at ALLLL V's. No offense meant and it might be good to review your other entries from January. If you are using the spreadsheet I am amazed that the computer didn't catch some of these.
Again, no offense intended. I just saw it and thought you would want to know. Thanks much for all the work you do on Evergreen. I am usually at the other end of the alphabet looking in the A's!

Regards, Elaine
