Bio and Links
Bio Photo My favorite contribution to this site is adding photos to existing memorials, so if I have created a duplicate, it was definitely not intentional. Just let me know and I will correct it, offering any photos and information to the original memorial.
Please, be nice:-)
I will likely ignore bully demands and opinions.

Unfortunately, some of my aggravations are getting the best of me. I will no longer delete any of my memorials as a duplicate if I have reason the believe that my "duplicate" occurred because incorrect information on the first memorial made it impossible for me to find it. I always search very carefully before making a memorial and I do not believe that it is fair for someone who had correct information to delete their memorial over someone who did not. I have had to delete several memorials because the first one had the wrong name, incorrect spelling, incorrect cemetery, etc. Most of my memorials come from actual leg-work-I drive to a cemetery, hike around and take photos of markers, and make memorials based on those photos. I put too much work into them, so I will not delete memorials in these cases. I will not ask someone else to, either.

Unknown Cemetery...
Sorry-I do not link to relatives in "unknown" cemetery if the memorial is outside of the FAG guidelines for unknown cemeteries. I do not believe this is truly "finding a grave". However, I am happy to add names of relatives to the bio.
I also believe this causes alot of confusion when the grave of the person is found, and a memorial is created by someone else in the proper cemetery.
The person who created the original memorial in "unknown" cemetery edits the memorial to the proper cemetery,causing a duplicate, and then forces the creator of the first "legitimate" memorial to delete theirs. This is unfair.

Transferring memorials...
I am very happy to do it. It makes me happy when someone in my memorials is found by a family member. I am also happy to transfer any memorial of someone who is of special interest to you, as long as my original memorial is not deleted. That is my only condition.
I WILL NOT TRANSFER FAMILY! I do not mind at all if you ask, but please don't be angry if I decline, as I likely will. But I am open to adding any information you have. I encourage photos!! As long as they are accurate and within FAG guidelines.

**Please, when you can, take a minute to clean off grave markers covered in dirt or grass so that they are not buried forever:-)

RE: James Bonham at Forest Lawn West
Good Morning Tracy,
James is no relation to me, but you are very kind to offer his transfer. In this day and age, you are extremely fortunate to know someone who considers the needs of others. Many of the contributors here just want to hoard memorials, grill family members and play relationship games with the relatives of the deceased. Thank you for being so hospitable to me. Have a wonderful week!

You're welcome - I had a chance to revisit today and took better pictures. Have posted them, one enhanced a bit to help pull her name out.

Beasley's/Morningside Cemetery
Dear t. stephens,

Ancestry sent me to you for help. I work for an organization that provides assistance to citizens with unusual and difficult requests. We have had a number of people searching for information on their relatives buried in Morningside Cemetery. We have been unable to find anyone associated with Beasleys that will help us. Since you made entries in this listing, I'm hoping you can provide information. We have had a number of people who have death certificates listing this cemetery as the place of interment for their loved ones, but we have been unable to find verification for them. Anything you can provide will be appreciated and will give families some peace of mind. (There is no charge for our work.) Thank you in advance.

RE: Transfers
The cemetery is located on interstate 51 and Monroe rd just as so as you enter Mathews if your coming down on Monroe rd...The best why to get to the cemetery is park behind Rite Aid and walk around the fence and you are right is kind hard tell you if drive around to find it is hind by a fence and tree.the cemetery is a small one about 50 family about 300 graves your family are some what together some of your families are damage because of old age.If you let me know when your are going to be in the area i can meat you and show exactly were they are located and to get there.
