I am a genealogist at heart and try very hard to find information and links for the memorials I create (and am aware that I am human and do make mistakes) so I am happy to add information and make corrections.
I am also happy to do transfers but please don't send me a transfer request just stating "transfer it to me so I can update it" or ask me to link to "burial unknowns." Every edit or transfer request I receive gets researched and checked against the people buried near them to see if I can find a connection. So please if you have the information, use the edit tab to send the suggestion and THEN ask for the transfer.
Also I create memorials for families so please do not ask for a transfer because you are collecting Civil War soldiers, Pioneers, or whole cemeteries etc. These were real people, not something to be collected and I refuse to treat them as such.
Thank you to all the volunteers that have added photos, send corrections or shared stories or obituaries with me about the memorials in my care. And to those who kindly accept the many edit/link requests that I send out.
*********************************** A note about photos: I have been using the beta photo up-loader and one of its quirks is that it doesn't show you if there is already a photo on a memorial. I have tried to delete any duplicate photos I have accidentally added but if you find I have missed one please feel free to let me know.
Transfers please. I deleted my memorials for Volkert D. Gordon and Ila Virginia (Elsea) Gordon and am hoping you might consider transfering your memorials for them to me if you are not related. I would love to add bio. info./obits. to their memorials so others will know more about them. Thanks for updating your memorials. Look forward to working with you. Farm Girl from MO.

RE: Section 7 Lot 130 questions Hi Mary, Thank you for your reply. I thought I had messaged you in the past, but couldn't find it when I looked back through all my messages. Did I really tell you Manhattan? I was hoping that maybe you found it in the cemetery records or something, and got excited that I might have found a new piece of information. My grandfather was adopted and I have no birth records for him, so I am eager to learn all I can about his origins. Although he lived with my family for the last 8 years of his life, he never spoke of his early life, not even to my father.
I live in California and haven't been able to make a trip to that cemetery. This is why I am SO grateful for all you have done. I wasn't requesting (or necessarily interested in) taking over these memorials from you, as I have no physical access to that place. But it is fine.
I don't know why my family never had markers made for my grandparents graves. Probably a financial decision. But I hope to someday have them made. An unmarked grave is a sad thing for me, especially because my grandparents were loved.
Section 7 Lot 130 questions Thank you for creating memorials for my family members, specifically my grandparents William Orvis Scott (Find A Grave Memorial# 128236268) and my grandmother Orril Mae Sutton (Find A Grave Memorial# 128235822). Everyone else in Section 7, Lot 130 are also my relatives.
I know that my grandparents plots do not have markers. I am curious to know if any of the plots in that lot have markers. Do you know? Also, in my grandfather's memorial info, you have his birth place listed as Manhattan. This is something I didn't know before. Can you tell me where you found this information?
Thank you again for all of the work you are doing for my and all the other families.
George and Louise Stange Obituaries Hello, I have the obituaries for George Stange # 108045080 and his wife Louise Stange # 108045163. Could you please input the information into their bios? Would like to send to your email or however best to send. Please let me know. Thank-you. LaVon Yuill
Orin F. Kelly Memorial #141442462 I think I inadvertently listed Orin F. Kelly's memorial number in the place for father! And now I cannot go back and find out if I did or not. If I did, could you correct it for me by putting in his father Ephraim Kelley's memorial number (#141442462)? Ephraim Kelley was buried in Stephenson County, Illinois, at the Lena Burial Park. Thank you!
