Find A Grave is now owned by Ancestry.com and it is now considered a genealogy source.
If you find memorial errors or photos added to the wrong memorials, please help solve these problems by sending edits.
I have done family history research (both ancestors and descendants) on my own family of Sutherland, Davidson, Corbett, and Fox. My research also takes me into that of my in-laws families including Drummond, McNulty, Tipping, Kehoe, and others. I take grave photos as a hobby.
Regarding gravestone photos, please remember that some of the older gravestones have mineral deposits or vegetation on them, and Find-a-grave volunteers are generally not in a position to clean the stones before photographing them. Cemeteries usually claim responsibility for ground maintenance, but consider gravestones to be family property, and therefore do not maintain the stones.
Older stones with mineral deposits, wear evidence, or grass or lichen growth will sometimes result in photographs in which details of the gravestones are difficult to read. If you have some specific instructions for me regarding your family's gravestone, pass the instructions along when you request the photo. I usually try to clean up minor contamination on a gravestone before taking a photograph.
If you have corrections for a memorial that I have authored, or you wish to be assigned as maintenance for the memorial, simply go to the memorial, click on the edit tab, then select "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" and ask for a transfer or enter information for a correction.
This process makes transfers and updates much easier to implement, and provides an audit history of changes. If you want a transfer, please tell me your relationship (if any) with the person whose maintenance you would like transferred. It is always helpful if you include your FAG member number.
For the record, I consider the FAG guidelines as reasonable, but not mandatory.
For copyright purposes, I grant free non-commercial use of photos I take for Find-a-Grave subscribers.
Regarding the Sutherland Families Hi John, I am just wondering if you are related in anyway to Pearl Drummond Sutherland of Arkansas. She is my great aunt. I have been searching for her for some time. You can reach me at email@example.com. Thanks Annette
RE: Re: Ingrid Mary Nelson Photos Sorry you have been ill. Glad I was able to get the photo's for you. I will try to get the photo turned upright. I do not have the photo saved in my computer any more. I did try and having some problems with getting the photo turned right around. But I will keep trying.
Herma Fox 59559781 John, thank you for adding his Civil War records. I am a member of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, the PH Sheridan camp#2. We are in the beginning stages of reviewing this cemetery, for Civil War veterans. There are (12) Civil War Veterans including one Confederate. We are in the process of securing (3) new Government markers for solders who never had one. In the spring we should set these markers, and using Boy Scouts (Eagle Award), we will clean and straighten the existing markers. I have set up a Virtual Cemetery for Fullersburg which will show all of the C/W Vets.

RE: Re: John, Eliz LUKE Yes Please do let me know if any new clues come up as to where the stones might be located. I was told that a few years back a big storm came through that area and destroyed many old trees along with quiet a few tombstones which were never replaced. Good luck!
Twombley-Fogg Hey John, We could have used machetes and a wilderness guide to go into this cemetery. I photographed all visible stones, examined the whole plot and found 1 broken, illegible stone with a footer marked "PT". Possibly Phebe Fogg Twombly. The homeowner, Nancy was extremely nice and brought myself and my friend on a tour of her property. Twas very interesting! Sincerely, Anne Blake
