Hi! When I discovered Find-A-Grave, I thought it was fantastic! What a great way to preserve history and help other genealogists! I immediately began photographing local cemeteries as a way to give back to others who have helped me and shared information. I love doing it and feel like I am contributing to preserving some of these really old headstones before they become so weathered and decayed that they are illegible. To each their own, but I do not believe I "own" the photographs I take nor do I feel I have a copyright on them! I just don't get that philosophy, but, like I said, everyone has their own thoughts on why they contribute to FAG. I do not volunteer to do this for "credit" in any form—I am doing it to help other genealogists as they search for their ancestor's final resting places. It is always absolutely fine with me if you use any and all photos I have taken for your ancestry.com trees or personal family trees and you do not need to give any credits to me. It has always been my idea that if we, as genealogists, do not share our discoveries and work as one big family, we are just making it harder to complete our own personal history books. As far as transfers, if you are a relative of any degree or just someone "special" to the deceased, I will gladly transfer unless they are also my own relative. I love everything historical and Find-A-Grave is a wonderful gift to us wanting to preserve history. Happy hunting! --Vickie|

Thank you for letting me know!
|Don Rekus||Cuppet Brothers|
Thanks so much for the transfers Vickie.
You posted an obit on #58252924 for Oren and his wife Anna. I'm curious as to where you found it and if you knew anything more about Anna's family. Thanks!
Could you please link both Vern Leon Cuppet # 100038307, and Lyle Cuppet # 103801338 to their parents, M.W. Cuppet # 24912613 and Lettie Sower #249912612 ?
I would accept a transfer if you desire. M.W. Cuppet's father, Polk Cuppet # 53528045 is a brother to my GG Grandmother.
Polk Cuppet and his 2 brothers, George and Marcellus have a very interesting story that can be read on Polk's site which I now manage.
Thanks so much,

For Gladys #95324903, I submitted an edit to add
her father and 2 husbands. (I have also submitted an edit to link her daughter Eva and son Raymond to her.)
Her gravestone does indeed have the same name as in her memorial (Gladys Bell Clark Hasty). However, her maiden name was Stierwalt, not Clark. (Stierwalt is not on the stone.)
Personally, I would correct her maiden name and add a note in her bio to show her name as it was on the stone.
I'm writing this message instead of sending an edit, so you can fix it as you wish.

|Dave Davenport||FRED FORTNEY 93780033|
ARE YOU RELATED TO FRED? I AM LOOKING FOR THE BURIAL LOCATION OF HIS PARENTS, E.B. FORTNEY 1867-1916 AND KATE STEWART FORTNEY 1866-1930. THEY HAD A DAUGHTER MARY DILDINE FORTNEY 1890-1839

You have the wrong parents for Marion Alexander Duncan. His parents are Alexander Duncan born 29 Jan 1815 Stokes, North Carolina. Died 30 Mar 1900 buried in Columbus, Bartholomew, Indiana. His wife is Sarah F Reddick born 29 Jun 1818 in Stokes, North Carolina. Died 13 Jan 1895 Columbus, Bartholomew, Indiana. The siblings listed are not correct. They are the children of Hiram and Martha Jane Reddick. But are not the siblings of A Marion Alexander Duncan. If you need more information please contact me. Denise
