A big "Thank You" goes out to everyone who sends any info and links for the memorials I've added. I regret that I cannot thank each of you individually, although with the new Edit system you now get computer-generated acknowledgements that your suggested changes and/or additions have been accepted.
I got interested in Family History in 2007, and in 2008 and 2009 visited hundreds of my "dead relatives", as my wife so descriptively put it. (I did meet many live ones, too.) Most of the graves I visited were close relatives of my great-grandparents and a great-great-grandmother: their siblings, aunts and grand-aunts, uncles and grand-uncles, and first and second cousins. Most of them were in Western Pennsylvania and Central Ohio, with a few scattered across Iowa and Nebraska.
Feel free to use any of my grave marker photos any way that you want to, as few (if any) of them have any artistic and/or commercial value which might be covered by the intent of the Copyright clause in the Constitution. (Please note, however, that this only applies to photos with my name under them. For any others, you will need to contact the person who added them for their permission to copy and use elsewhere.)
I would appreciate assistance in trying to have them remove memorial # 150820287 (who listed my Grandmother under the last name "Keeler".) She was never married legally to Keeler as she was still married to my grandfather, Raymond Maxwell legally. Herbert buried her under his last name. This is important to our family that this history is known.
The other outstanding memorial #95013604 was put in place before mine however, the owner wouldn't respond to my requests to transfer ownership so I had no choice but to make my own.
Again, I have contacted each owner this morning again asking them to kindly remove their memorials to avoid these cross-over confusions.
RE: Lovena Butterfield Hamilton family I believe Carol T contacted me because she did not realize that in Find A Grave a child is connected to his parents and not the parents to the child. Why she has in interest in this family I do not know. However, she seems to have done solid research and in the interest of accuracy, I passed her message on to you. Carol
