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.

I changed the info and then decided to transfer to you since your relation. Any more transfers let me know.

RE: Gabbert Cemetery
Thanks. If you don't still maintain the Blakemores I'll transfer ownership to you. The only way I know to add the note about this cemetery also being known as Gabbert is to go through the Find A Grave Forum process. Takes time and not always successful. Do you have a better way?

RE: Prosser Cemetery
Oops, I didn't fully answer your question about how I determined which was which. I relied on the landowner, a person of advanced age who doesn't have people buried in either cemetery, and on info from the Prosser family history. My co-worker and I were working the Prosser family when we went up there. I initially thought the Bills Cemetery was Prosser although the sign was across the road, but none of the expected Prosser burials were there. So, we checked further and arrived at the present IDs. I suspect Gabbert was the older name but many Prossers are buried there also and of about the same time periods. We often find multiple names like this in Lincoln County. Makes it difficult to find cemeteries unless there is someone who knows the history.

RE: Prosser Cemetery
The Bills Cemetery is in a pasture about 100 feet south of Cheese Road and almost directly across from the road leading back to Prosser. The Prosser sign is right by Cheese road but there was no sign for the Bills Cemetery. Both are well maintained and fenced although the Bills fence needed a little straighting. Both cemeteries apparently have descendants who are maintaining them.

Gabbert Cemetery
I believe this is same as Prosser Cemetery which I have surveyed and photographed. I wonder if you would tranfer your Blakemore entries from Gabbert to Prosser. I will then add my pictures to your posts, delete my duplicates, and note in Prosser Cemetery description that it was previously called Gabbert. The Blakemores would still belong to you.

ALso, I didn't find Joseph Blakemore's marker. What are documents showing burial there?
