Find A Grave says: ...the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.
I've been doing genealogy since the fall of 2006. I can't recall exactly how or when I discovered Find A Grave, but it has been an amazing resource that I come back to time and time again. I try to contribute here in my own small way by adding memorials for people I discover during the course of my research and by submitting edit requests to add maiden names, parents and spouse links to existing memorials. My goal is to honor my ancestors and relatives by subscribing to Find A Grave's mission as outlined above.
In keeping with this mission, I will usually have no problem with transferring management of any of the memorials that I currently manage. To request a transfer, please put in a request using the edit tab in the upper right of the memorial, and then use the "Suggest any other correction or addition" link to let me know your Find A Grave contributor number and your relationship to the person whose memorial you are requesting transfer of.
I believe in sharing the information I've gathered (other than Social Security numbers and information on living people), as I've learned quite a bit from others sharing with me. You can usually find additional information about the people I've added, along with my source for that information, by visiting my website. Alternately, feel free to post a message here, or send an email using the link at the bottom of all the pages at my website.
Note: Feel free to make use of any of my photos (unless it's a photo that I've posted by permission of someone else as noted in the photo caption), although I would greatly appreciate a credit being given of "Photo by Dan Stone (http://www.danstone.info)". Thank you.
RE: Melbourne cemetery Hi Dan! Finally, we found the Melbourne cemetery. A friend of mine went up and took photos. We are going again in a couple of weeks, and I want to get some backup information and then try to get the cemetery cleaned and somewhat restored. I am so excited! You can email me if you want to chat more about this cemetery....
RE: Murphy, Nancy Dan, Could you please make memorial suggestions, links, dates, etc. from the memorial page? It is so much easier for me, otherwise I have to look them up and with the number of grave memorials I manage it is almost impossible to find them with just their names. Thanks so much! Lois
Queen Wright I modified Queen's memorial that I had to state: "Per the Union Township, Ross County, Ohio, cemetery records, Queen Wright was buried in Wright Cemetery and there was a headstone there or record of burial. As of 1970 there were no markers in the cemetery. Queen, along with other sibling children, is listed on her parent's marker in Brown's Chapel Cemetery. Do not know if the remains were moved to Brown's Chapel.
Link to Brown's Chapel http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=116259915 "
I also removed the link to her parents as that is on the memorial by dakholi - Find A Grave Memorial# 116259915. If dakholi inserts the paragraph above, I will delete my memorial.

Coradel Virginia (Wade) Jared Dan, Coradel Virginia Wade was married on 8-22-1922, Terre Haute, Vigo, IN, to my 3x1 cousin Raymond Robert Jared. Raymond Robert Jared (107888911) was the son of Wilson Taylor Jared (27593506) who was married 04-01-1870 to my cousin, Mary Celia McCord (27593505) who was the daughter of my cousin James McCord (47279892) and his wife Mary Jane Beall (47287401). James McCord was the son of my 2nd great-grand uncle and aunt John McCord and Selah Chism. John was a son of my 3rd great-grandparents James Thomas McCord, the immigrant, and Martha Burch, who were married 03-24-1791. My mother decends from their youngest son, Thomas McCord. I have no information at all on the Wade family, other than on the son of Raymond Robert Jared and Coradel Virginia Wade, also named Raymond Robert Jared (13978662) and his wife Janice (13978659), which I found on ancestry dot com. Should you find yourself related to the McCords, I have much information on that family, and the line can easily be traced on here.
Your George Wade Do you know where or what unit he served in. I also have someone in the cemetery Daniel Davis who served 11th Colonial Line. maybe they served together or close. They are both buried in the same cemetery. I do not see his name in the 1939 reading by the wpa but that does not mean he is not there, I have a friend in Erie PA who might be going there for me. I have asked him to take a piece of rebar to stick in the ground to [possibly find tombstones. Not sure if he will yet be able to do that yet this fall or wait to next year I am be ale to go then. If Daniel does not have a tombstone I will be contacting the Veterans association in Monongalia to see if I can get a new put there for him. If you can give me information on him that would be great. I might be able to find information on him myself but if you can help that would be great.
