Hi everyone who is a serious family tree researcher as me. I've been researching my family tree for many many years now, been interested in my family history all my life. This site has been great to help me in my family tree research and in some ways, a nightmare. It's like many who manage memorials think these deceased belong to their family, most of the time, NOT...|
I only do memorials for my family tree, my hubby's whose tree I research for he's not into genealogy and also my x's tree for our children together, ditto for him.
I find most of the memorial pages on Find A Grave have only what people listed from a marker or an obit. I found most will update the memorials they hold for us, some won't, very sad. I can also tell you it's like pulling teeth to get some of these memorial hoarders to transfer even your close family memorials to you. My maternal gr.mother's memorial was held by a woman in Memphis and she would not transfer my gr.mother's memorial to me. I did get it in a round about way, shame on that memorial hoarder. The good thing is they will die some day and maybe you'll be lucky enough to survive them then you can update your family tree memorials thru Find A Grave. If not, God knows who your deceased family are and that's what counts...
I want everyone out there to know that if I have a photo put on any memorial whether I manage the memorial or not then it is yours to share. I will not be so very selfish that I think I own the photos from my family trees, they belong to all connected to me via my family tree...
I've found many on Find A Grave don't do family tree research, seems many are just into listing where people are buried, that person had a history. So if you aren't connected to my family tree then they don't belong to you, they belong to we who are also into researching our family trees.
I'm into the life before death and many photos were taken by the eldest children of the families. I've gone to flea mkt's and seen thousands of old photos that got lost to the later generations so if you have old photos of your family, your blessed, pass them down to someone else who will cherish them too before you die...

Hello, hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I looked at the photo and this is what is on the stone:
Francis (the Father) Margaret (the Mother)
From Newberry Co. S.C.
Death: Unknown Born: 1807 Death: Unknown
Drayton M. Wilson m. (1st wife) Frances Kinard (2nd wife) Emaline Lutrick
Jane Elizabeth Wilson m. (1st husband) L.H. Suber
(2nd husband) T.B. Hooker M.D.
Mary P. Wilson m. O.L. Baber
Margaret Ann Wilson m. (1st husband) W.E. Jeffries
(2nd husband) D. Foster
It doesn't have a spouse for Thomas or Sarah, doesn't mean they never married just that they were not married when this stone was done I guess..........Hope this helps some, pam and teresa
