Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy research since March 2011 when I took it over for my aunt Joan (who is still living). I am retired and have a very lengthy research background which has been extremely helpful in my genealogy research. My research includes Kelly/Eller/Sherrill/
Cathey in Mecklenburg County and Caldwell County and Iredell County. So far, I am only adding FAG pages for my descendants and their families.

You may use any photos I have posted IF you give me proper credit (i.e., "used by permission of Rhea Kelly at FAG."). Thanks.

RE: Tobe E. Eller Jr.
Don't worry. I did not just recently go out to Triplett. I'm not sure why I took the Eller photos that I do have. Usually, I take photos of all the same-family grave sites that I see even if they are not a request. Since your current requests are in the same location as the other Ellers, I'm surprised I did not get photos if grave sites are marked.

Someone else may pick them up, but no one usually takes photos out there. Because it's a bit of a trip for me, I usually let requests "collect." They can be there for weeks. If they are still there when the weather gets a bit nicer, I will claim and fill the request.

RE: Tobe E. Eller Jr.
Hello Rhea. I do remember meeting you at the Rowan Library and enjoyed our time together very much. You are welcome for the photos. I had taken these a while ago when out at Triplett for other requests. I do not have the other you wanted. When the weather gets a little better, I'll go out there.

Glad you're back into genealogy. A break does help sometimes, though. Hope you're having a good year.

RE: Marshall Nay Eller
That would be fine. Use my photos as needed as long as you specify where you got them. Thanks for asking.

Amanda Hood
If you read the memorial, I have quoted an article from the Carroll paper dated August 10, 1936. It says "Mrs. Hood died Dec. 18, 1918, at the home of their daughter, Mrs. Lenore Miller, in Wilmette, Illinois."

Kathryn Sweat Request
There is no grave in the Sweat Family plot for Walter Sylvester Hilderbrand, We'll be glad to continue to look for the grave in Blackshear City Cemetery if you'd like though. Forrest Sweat lies next to Kathryn, and he's on Findagrave at If the link doesn't work, his is memorial # 16917059. You can send an edit request (top right tab of memorial which will link him to her page)

Let me know if you need any more information.

RE: John Hammond Altee
You are very welcome! I live in the Columbia/Lexington area, so if you need photos in this part of the state, feel free to ask. It's not a problem. I am from the Upstate, though, and frequently go visit family, so if you need photos from the Saluda/Greenwood/Ninety Six areas, & maybe Abbeville, I can do those as well. It may take me longer to get those than ones around Lexington/Columbia, but I'm usually in the Upstate every couple of weeks. Just a thought! :)

Inactive Members
I found this in the Find A Grave Faqs. You'll end up having to go thru Find A Grave to get it transferred if the member is truly inactive. Hope this helps!

What if I suggest a correction and the contributor doesn't respond?

Have patience. Many contributors receive hundreds of corrections every month and it may take a while for your correction to be processed. Also, not every Find A Grave contributor is active on a daily basis on the site. If you have suggested a correction and waited longer than thirty days for it to be processed or if you have found a contributor who you believe to be permanently inactive, please send the correction to edit@findagrave.comalong with source and documentation, and we will edit the memorial on their behalf. 

 As a contributor, do I have to make corrections or additions to the memorials I manage?

Find A Grave memorials are to be viewed as works in progress. There is always the potential for someone to send you a correction or additional information. As the manager of the memorial, we hope that you will be excited to receive and post new information as it is presented to you. If you neglect to update memorials when valid corrections are sent to you, we may determine that you have become an inactive member. If that happens, we may make corrections on your behalf or transfer management of the memorial to an active contributor. If you have added memorials that you do not want to manage, please let Find A Grave know, and we will assume management.

Photos of Stones/Graves in SC
I stumbled on your profile & happened to notice you'd asked someone about taking pics/going to a cemetery in SC, & he told you that he no longer lives in SC. I will be more than happy
to help you with pics/etc if at all possible. Let me know where the cemetery(s) are & I'll see if it's near me.
