Please check the cemetery before you make an entry to avoid duplications. I welcome any corrections to information I have entered. Please use the suggest a correction tab on the individual memorial. It's easier for me that way.

Regarding transfers, please remember...just because you are related to someone doesn't mean someone else isn't. Please see F-A-G guidelines regarding transfers. *"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."

Here's what the Find-A-Grave rules state about entering memorials for people still living: Please try to avoid it. In general, we do not encourage adding memorials for individuals who are still living. We do realize, however, that when transcribing a cemetery, it is not always possible to determine if the person is living or not. Please do not add pre-need memorials from (1931-present) to Find A Grave. Memorials for individuals who are alive will be removed when requested (the exception being for 'famous' individuals who already have a burial location in place). You are always welcome to create a 'pre-need' memorial for yourself, if you would like, provided that you have a pre-need headstone already in place in a cemetery.

RE: Rose Hill / Simmons
Michael,

The photos or Earl and Ada's stone are outstanding. On behalf of my entire family a heartfelt thank you!

The extra generosity you've extended by helping search their obits is both wonderful and so greatly appreciated. Tennessee Williams once said I have always depended on the kindness of strangers... It warms the spirit to run into such kind people as yourself. Thank you sir.

If there is ever anything you need from South Florida please do not hesitate to contact me.

All the best...

Clint

I greatly appreciate your kindness and the generosity of your time in visiting the cemetery, locating their plots, photographing their markers and sharing your nice photos on their memorials. You're a kind soul. You were given photo credits in my genealogy program.
Best Regards,

This will give you some additional info. I've used it myself. On fragile stones, I simply spray it on without any scrubbing. It may turn limestone orange, but it soon fades.

Before and after photos at Find A Grave# 38144063.


I usually buy it from Limeworks, but it's more expensive this year. Sometimes they have a seasonal promotion, with a cheaper price.

http://store.limeworks.us/D_2_Biological_Solution_p/d2.htm

Stones in good condition, but with heavy biological growth can be well sprayed with water and gently scrubbed with a plastic brush. A brush that would be safe to use on your car finish. After a light scrubbing, spray on the D2 and let it rest. You should see good results in 30 days. Some stones may require a second treatment.

I use it for the stones of family members and military veterans. Unfortunately, I haven't done much this summer.

Thanks
You have taken some great photos foe the Milliken and Barnes family. I have a couple of suggestions. Continue taking photos as you presently do, but then spray water on the older, hard to read stones, and take an additional photo. Sometimes the water makes the stone slightly reflective and easier to read. Especially if the sun is shining on it.

If you might be interested in cleaning some of these older stones, use D2. You just spay it on and wait, 30-60 days. D2 removes old biological growth. It's approved by the Veteran's Admin. and is used in our National Cemeteries.

Thanks for all your hard work.
