We absolutely appreciate the hard work some people do in transcribing cemetery info, and photographing markers, and are then gracious enough to share that work with others.
We don't have a lot of entries on Find a Grave, and we are not able to walk the cemeteries anymore, but we strive to get all the information we can on each one that we enter.
Most of our memorials are to honor beloved family members and friends. And I love it when someone adds an old photo to a memorial that I/We created!!!
You may copy our photo's & info to use on other sites, but please be courteous enough to give credit to the original person that posted them!
To me, Find a Grave is "not only to let people know where their ancestors are buried". It is also a way to "honor" those gone before us!!!
If you find a mistake in our memorials, we will be glad to change it in most cases, and if they are your family member and you are a closer relation than we are, We will gladly transfer them to you if asked to do so.

May God Bless each and every one of you that are helping preserve the memories.
Thank you! Thank you so much for adding the King/William family cemetery. Since it is overgrown and on private property now, it could have easily been lost for years
My 5th great grandfather is Henry King 1792-1854. I was wondering if you are related and if you know more about his parents? On Ancestry I have his father as being Benjamin King 1768-1827, but I have no documentation to back that up.
Thank you for your time and sharing with rest us! Laci
King/Williamson Cemetery I would love to know how to get to the King/Williamson Cemetery. My 3x Great Grandparents are buried there, as is my 4x Great Grandmother. They are William and Naomi Williamson and his mother Eve. From the picture you posted it may not be around much longer and I was thinking maybe I can try to repair it a little bit.
Marguerite Layton Thank you for the edit to add Marguerite's parents to her memorial. I really appreciate it. Are you related to the Hutto family? I'm a cousin of her husband, Jim Ike Layton. Sincerely, Carolyn
Abi Eiland Hitchcock King The source of my information concerning Abi is from a family Bible that Matthew Hall Hitchcock kept. My information was transcribed from his Bible. I have been to the cemetery, however, I did not find a marker for either her or her first husband. However, it is a very old cemetery and there are a lot of unmarked graves. By the way the other side of my family has Efurds in it.
Unless "you" / "i" am related to someone, what is the point of collecting memorials? I help add cemeteries, and often get memorials from other members who have either stopped being contributors or have passed away. It isn't a number game for me - unlike others. There is no prize for having the most memorials, at least not to my knowledge!
Enjoy your 4th Great Grand - and make her memorial "come to life" with all the nuggets of info / photos etc for our heirs to find on their ancestral journey!
