|Bio and Links|
Since I retired, I've found a bit of time to get back into genealogy. I think I've become addicted to FindaGrave. What a fabulous site! I enjoy setting up and maintaining memorials for my loved ones, as well as others. I also enjoy being a volunteer and taking pictures of headstones to upload! My husband has even joined in the fun!!
My photo shows what I love most -- visiting those little old almost forgotten cemeteries.
My family trees include: Sells, Winningham, Hill, Wright, Ledbetter, McDonald, Cook, Hymers, Morton, Douglas, Murphy, Clayton, Flowers, Galloway
Please remember to use the EDIT button on memorial pages to offer suggestions, corrections, and even questions regarding specific memorials. Also please remember that no one is perfect -- we all make mistakes.
Obituaries and Other Documents
I will not include cut/paste from books, obituaries, or other documents in the bio. I will be glad to include a summary of the obituary, but names of the living will not be included. From other documents, I would consider including only pertinent information that is not covered in other fields on the memorial.
Please do not add scanned items, including death certificates, in the photo area of memorials I manage. If there is information in the item you would like added, please submit it in a SAC and I will consider adding the info in the bio. Otherwise, please only upload grave/headstone photos and/or personal photos of the deceased.
Regarding Burials Unknown
According to Find a Grave guidelines (FAQs), creating a memorial as a Burial Unknown is to be used only for new burials, with the memorial to be edited/updated with the final disposition within 30 days.
Listing a memorial as Body Lost or Destroyed just because the burial place is not known is not accurate, just as Non-Cemetery Burial is also not accurate if it's a case of simply not knowing where the deceased is buried.
Please do not request that I link to a Burial Unknown.
Please feel free to use (for your personal non-commercial use) any headstone photos that I take and upload to FindaGrave memorials.

Your welcome! Sorry about all the grass but we are not supposed to touch the headstones!
|Billie (Morris) Barushak||RE: James Riley, again|
Hello! Wow. Thanks for the quick reply. There is already a memorial in Parris-Riley Cemetery for their son, James (1837-1911). I sent an edit request to the memorial owner to link him to Joseph & Caroline. Unless there was a 2nd son named James? I'm just getting into this line so I am still uncovering information. Here is the link to the other memorial if you are curious:

It was my pleasure. ~Jan
We see that you mention McDonalds and Hills, also ancestors of my wife. Her mother was a Reynolds. We visit Wirmingham Cem. annually for Decoration Day. Wife Judy has ancestors in three or four cemeteries in Overton Co. Nice day to you.
|Joe Roberson||RE: Transfer request|
Yes, by all means. You kindness is appreciated.

You're lucky - ours are about 100 miles (better than the 600 miles when we were in TN)but we still don't see them often enough - maybe 3-4 times a year (sigh). Everybody's just so darn busy, and of course we're old & crappy & have no life :)

His second wife is buried in the same cemetery where he is, as far as I can tell. He died in 1918 and she died in 1940.

Thank you for the information. A family member misguided me on his location. I will be in contact with the creator of the original memorial. Thanks again!
Thank you for advice about uploading photos under type. I'm afraid I got a bit overzealous. Lol! I will be correcting them, thankfully, I haven't done too many!
|Pat from Sacramento||RE: McGill, Ward, Huckins|
I apologize for taking so long to reply. Adeline Ward McGill is my 4th great aunt. Not a really close relationship, but if you are not related I will be happy to take the transfer and manage her memorial. Thank you for the offer
Regards, Pat #46605720
