Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have spent many years researching my ancestors. Surnames connected to my father's line: Halterman,Myers,Shanks,Barnes,Baker,Petticord,Floyd,Cox,Robinson, Barnett,Glass,Evans and Huff from OH, PA, MD

Surnames connected to my mother's line are: Greene,Green,Watson,Sherrill,Carlton,Livingston, Marley,Ferguson,Wallace,White,Triplett,Laws, McKee,Allison,Durham,Bailey,Lowrance,Bray, Hodges,and Hamby from North Carolina. My third great grandmother in NC is believed to be a full blood Cherokee. Perhaps DNA will prove it.

I only enter and manage memorials that are of my family & ancestors. Please respect my request to manage Find A Grave memorials of my ancestors entered by someone with no family connection. I have met some very nice people who will transfer a cousin or ancestor that does not meet the FAG guide lines, and some members who are in no way connected but will not part with the management of a memorial that they made. If you do not want to transfer a memorial when asked, do not send me mail about the FAG guidelines. I have read them and I think the relationship does not go far enough. If it is a cousin that you can add information about it will be helpful to anyone working on genealogy. If you know nothing about the person please transfer as requested.

The Schupp's from Germany adopted my Baker grandmother and therefore I entered memorials for all the Schupp's connected to her adopted family.

Many NC families migrated to Coshocton County, Ohio starting in 1920 and continued through the 1930's. Most (if not all), are connected to my NC ancestors. I will make memorials for those who lived, had children, and died here. I have known many of these people since I was a child.

WHEN I ADD A FAMILY PICTURE TO THE MEMORIALS, DO NOT COPY THEM WITHOUT MY APPROVAL. IN NO WAY ARE THEY TO BE COPIED AND USED ON ANY INTERNET GENEALOGY SITE. I have found copies of my pictures on and GENI genealogy sites that were taken without my permission. Any member of Find A Grave that does not honor this restriction will be tracked down and reported.

I recently found some of my entire Find A Grave memorials copied and put on GENI and Rootsweb. The FAG memorials are managed only by me and when copied and added to other websites, I cannot change or delete them. This must be stopped.

Do you know that Find A Grave genealogy and pictures are now part of If you did not want your information spread around everywhere it is too late. This included copyrighted family pictures. You have to pay for information including what was yours.

I also follow the Federal Law at 17 U.S.C 107 about copying information and pictures and using them for other than personal use.

It is OK to copy pictures of grave stones. Thanks

Don Roy Laws, Memorial #76980623
I've sent you a message regarding a possible change that would make your memorial for Mr. Laws (#151544852) acceptable as a cenotaph, rather than a duplicate. If you choose to accept my proposal, let me know when you've added the additional information so that I can reference yours (embedded link). You can reference mine, also, if you want.

I have deleted my memorial, however I am always happy to transfer any memorial to a family member. The next time just request the transfer, because I will not be deleting any others.

RE: Durham-Sherrill Cemetery found
That is fantastic news! Did she record the coordinates and physical address? That information can uploaded to Find A Grave so that others can find it in the future.

Well Said
Thank you for your comments on your bio page. There is so much poaching going on with lifting of complete narratives, photos, etc. that the jails could not hold all the miscreants. Ancestry and others have fostered a nest of vipers and thieves. I, too, have found almost everything I have done to be copied over, modified erroneously, onto these alien sites...without my permission. If only they would not change the data thru typos, etc. I can never get in to correct it back to the way it should be. It's somewhat of a "wild west" out there of entitlement of information, regardless of the effort needed to generate the photo or data in the first place. You have correctly described the issues and Find A Grave will do little about it (since they are owned by the crowd). Sigh!

RE: Bethel Church Picture
You are very welcome. It's actually a small booklet that includes names of current and past members (from back then!) I got when a cousin of my grandmother died in 1986. I'm glad you appreciate it.

RE: Silentangel
No I haven't contacted Find A Grave about her yet. I need to get together the memorial information for my family and contact Find A Grave and ask them to transfer them. I believe there are around 31 in the same cemetery. I'm guessing maybe she passed away, too bad I don't know her real name, she probably lives local to me and I could try contacting her. Let me know what response you get from Find A Grave.

RE: Edward Bray 55998977
Thank you so much for responding. I'm helping to work on an application for the DAR. My Edward Bray (1760 - 1840)was born in Orange Co NC; married a Nancy Dowdy (1760 - 1830); and was living in Monroe Co KY on the 1840 census.
I have a Quaker record that shows an Edward Bray Admitted on 6 Apr 1799 with father, Henry Bray, in Surry NC. Obviously different Edwards. Do any of these names and places fit into your Bray family notes?
