Find A Grave is a grave registry, not a genealogy site for recording your personal family history. I am willing to transfer memorials--but not those that I am related to, kin through marriage, or are friends of mine or their relatives. If you would like to have a memorial that I have entered transferred to you, Please Read the Find a Grave Guidelines, first to determine if the memorial is within the guidelines. If the memorial is within the Find a Grave guidelines, please state the exact relationship to the deceased when making a transfer request. I do not make bulk surname transfers. For those who wish to "collect" all of a certain surname, please consider creating a virtual cemetery.

I do make mistakes and I would appreciate being informed so that they can be corrected. If you have additional information that you would like added to a memorials, send it and I will consider it.

Nathaniel Haggard Find A Grave Memorial# 85127540
Nathaniel Haggard Jr married Elizabeth Hayes. His parents are NOT Nathaniel Haggard and Elizabeth Gentry.

Nathaniel Haggard Jr's married Elizabeth Hayes parents ARE Nathaniel Sheepskin Haggard and Elizabeth "Betsy" Gentry.

You have Nathaniel Haggard attached to his grandparents can you please fix this.

Thank you.

Would you please add a link to John Allen Wilson # 75792199 & Rebecca Trout Wilson # 75792291 of their son Harry Davis Wilson # 154059724.

Harry's gravestone is managed by Ron Cooper so I am also posting a request to him.

Thank you,

Nancy J. Faulk
Sorry I am late getting back to you regarding Nancy J. Faulk Bowden. I do not know where she is buried but as far as I know she is not buried in the Bowden Family Cemetery aka Moses Bennett Bowden Cemetery. I visited there a few weeks ago and checked again. I have a contact who knows all about that cemetery so I will double check. My great grandparents and great great grandparents are buried there. I do suspect Abel Bowden, the 3rd great grandparent is buried there too, but have no verification. Someone else added him. I am trying to get the name of the cemetery changed.

Thanks for all you do. Happy Spring!

Jesse Dillon
You added a memorial for him at the Dillon Cemetery in Tremont.

The death date in your memorial, and, in many family trees shows the date of death as Sep 4, 1848.

A picture was added by another individual, and, while the stone is not that readable, it appears to show a death date (month not readleable) 27, 1851.

Is it possible for you to verify this info on his grave stone?

DOB Dec 4, 1786

Thank You,

Don Fisher

Benjamin Payne
I am trying to find information on a Benjamin Payne that bought some land in Howard Co. Missouri in 1843. How do I tell if it is Benjamin Johnson Payne or another Benjamin Payne. I am new to this type of research. Thanks

Bowden Family Cemetery
The Bowden Family Cemetery I created in 2010 suddenly shows three Bowden's listed that are not buried there. Charlie Jeffries Bowden is buried in what is listed at the RD Bowden Cemetery and Willoughby Green Bowden is buried at Duke Memorial Church Cemetery. Their daughter Myrtle Perry's records indicate she is buried in the Perry family cemetery. This could be a glitch of some type since I never saw them there before. Any suggestions? I had hoped to change the cemetery name to clarify better as there are several Bowden cemeteries around that area. Regards.

RE: Bowdoin vs Bowden
Dear Collector -
Thank you for your note and the information - I have been tryiong to tease out the confusion in this line of late and will use your information to separate the John Bowden facts that have been misapplied to John Bowdoin.
As for the memorial, I will strip it of the facts that belong to your John Bowden and continue the hunt for the facts for "my " John Bowdoin.
Can you point me to a tree for John Bowden I may use for the broader picture? For example, Peggy Webb is who I have for John Bowdoin, but perhaps John Bowden's wife is another Peggy, not Webb, etc.?
