Bio and Links
I will transfer any non Gunn memorial, please use the 'edit' & 'suggest a correction' method.
I will trade memorials with anyone that has a Gunn memorial. One for one or if you have 50,000+ memorials you could just transfer the Gunn ones to me.

Apparently some F.A.G. members think they are more intelligent, have spent more time walking, photographing, researching and what ever else then anyone else. I send out edits because I found the correct info in my research which is real research, I look at original documents and I take a family member's word about their loved ones memorial and will fix any info even if it contradicts a bio or added story. The press gets it wrong, the stone carvers get it wrong, the funeral homes get it wrong and we all get it wrong.

ps I forward all rude, condescending,
in-appropriate, arrogant, self-serving and down right stupid emails to info@findagrave. I have actually done this a few times in the past year, what is going on with people out there?

I have had several dna tests. Some from Family Tree DNA, another test with Ancestry dna. The latest test (the Big Y, at FTDNA)put my ancestral homes proceeding backwards as; Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia, Connecticut, Massachusetts, England, Scotland, Norway, and 2300 years ago, Northern Germany.
I am an R1b1a2a1a1b, R-P312+, DF19+, DF-88+. My Ysearch id is BSTUQ, Family Tree DNA # 222038.

I am finding that my male ancestors were a fighting bunch. My direct line has participated in every war including the revolution. My 2nd great grandfather #76873051 served with the 65th Georgia Volunteer Army of Tennessee. My 4th great grandfather #24881763 was a Private in the Rev War and the War of 1812. My father #20291944 was in Korea, Vietnam, and I was in the cold war and Desert Shield/Storm. I am a retired US Navy Electronics Technician Chief Petty Officer.

Are you on
My research lead me to this grave entry. My mother was a Gunn from Anniston, Alabama.

I'd be interested to see where our trees match.

Jesse Gunn
Jesse Gunn is my third great grandfather. I recently visited the old Gunn Cemetery in Buckhead, Morgan County GA. Enjoyed meeting with Gayle and she showed me the information she had on the burial plots for Gunn's. Her records didn't include Jesse. There is an old section that is being over grown with cedars. Do you know who found the headstone that is displayed here? If we had a better idea of its location perhaps we could try and find it. Thank you for all your work!

RE: Ulysses M Gunn
Hey Bill,

I'm sorry it's taken so long for me to get back with you, it's been a while since I've been on F.A.G. I'm actually not related to Ulysses. I was a volunteer that helped clean up the cemetery that he is buried at and took an interest in him. The cemetery had been abandoned and was in disrepair until a very nice couple started taking care of it a few years ago. I'd be happy to transfer the memorial to you so a family member can have his memorial.

Thank you,

RE: Format for adding info to memorials
Hi Bill,

Greetings from a very rainy Sydney Australia.

I'm sorry if I have offended you, but your understanding of Find a Grave and mine are completely different. This is taken from the Find a Grave website-

"General Questions About Find A Grave

What is Find A Grave?
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave must fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

Find a Grave memorials may contain rich content including pictures, biographies and more specific information. Members can leave remembrances via 'virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience."

There is provision for a biography of the deceased which is often filled with details of their life, including their relations.

I have spent a long time linking all my family and searching for the deaths/burials of Alida's parents James W JOHNSTON and Annie DOUGLAS.

I believe James W died around 1872 but as I live in Australia I have not been able to find his burial record, even after checking many databases.

Annie remarried a Thomas DUVAL and "took off" so even her own children could not find her. I have searched and searched but have not been able to find her death/burial. Perhaps you have information about them that you may be able to help me with.

This is the newspaper article I found-
25 Feb 1894
Los Angeles Herald, Volume 41, Number 127

An Estate Involved In The HuntóNo News Received For Five Years. They Are Anxious to Ascertain Her Whereabouts.
San Francisco Chronicle: Eleven years ago Mrs. Ann Johnston was wedded to Thomas H. Duval, then a local musician. Mrs. Johnston had five children and the marriage proved distasteful to them. Family relations were not of the most amicable character, and four years later Mrs. Johnston-Duval decided to leave San Francisco with her husband. They went eastward and the family ties were practically sundered. For two years after her departure Mrs. Duval corresponded with a daughter, now deceased, but suddenly letters ceased to come. Five years have passed and the surviving members of the family have heard not a word either directly or indirectly from the mother who left them years ago. Inquiries have been made in many eastern cities. Friends of the family traveling toward the rising sun have searched in vain. During the exposition at Chicago, it was thought the missing relative had been located, but the hope was in vain. During the past two years the search has been especially kept up, as a matter of considerable importance to mother and children has developed. During this time the father of Mrs. Duval has passed away at Sydney, N. S. W. He was Alexander Douglas, a well-to-do resident of the antipodes. His grandchildren are anxious to learn what has become of their mother, in order that the estate may be settled and go to the proper heirs. Their stepfather has two sons now in this city who are as much in the dark regarding their father's whereabouts as his stepchildren. The sons are Fred and Herbert Duval. The latter is at present a cornet player in the band at the Pavilion skating rink. One of Mrs. Duval's daughters, Mrs. Harriett Sharp, resides at 542 Turk street. With her is living her brother, David Johnston. Another brother, James H. Johnston, resides in Los Angeles. Mrs. J. W. Gunn of 327 Twenty Fifth Street is a sister of Mrs. Sharp. When seen last evening, Mrs. Sharp said: "We have had no trace of mother for five years. Lately I heard that she was in Denver, and have asked the police of that city to search for her. I fear that she is dead, because of the long time that has elapsed since we have heard from her. Her marriage to Mr. Duval was not to our liking, and after mother learned our views she decided to go away. She is Scotch, and spunky," explained Mrs. Sharp, and the course she took was in accord with her nature. The estate of her father cannot be settled until we are assured either of her death or that she is alive to receive the bequest."

I have added all the siblings on Find a Grave but they cannot be linked together without the parents.

You might like to check the sibling of Alida-

You also say it is NOT a genealogical site-yet it is owned by to help researchers complete the history of their families. I take the view that any extra information you leave in the bio MAY HELP OTHERS.

I respect your decision not to add information but at least you may now understand why I asked.

John Waugh
John Waugh volunteer # 46969136 has made approximately 400 memorials - 200 of which are duplicates. His profile page is full of requests to delete the duplicates.

He refuses to delete duplicates.

I have reported about a dozen to Find A Grave admin. If you find any duplicates of your memorials that he has made - please report them to Admin at - give them the memorial numbers and they will merge the original & duplicates.

Thank you!
