Thank yous:

I try very hard to thank each person that completes SAC's for me, even if they ask me for sources or leave out or miss part of it. If I've missed you, it was not intentional.

The "In it for the numbers" folks: I've heard this term used negatively, but those that transcribe massive numbers of folks for us, whatever the source are the angels of this site. Please keep it up. I have folks I need to find and I can't find them without you. So thank you for all you do!

Thank you to everyone who's transferred a family member to me, most OOG. Every transfer is a gift, but also a responsibility. I promise to be a good steward. I've made my "Biographies Finished" and Biographies Needed" virtual cemeteries visable, so those that want to see if I've done anything with what they entrusted to me can see where I'm at in that process. I originally created those just to help me track, but realized that might be useful to those who've transferred to me.

A little more:

I'm not offended when you:

Deny me a transfer (I'm ALWAYS asking for a "gift")
Ask me more about how I'm related
Ask me if I have a source for this or that
Give me suggestions, tips or point out an error

Temporary transfers:

If I have extensive changes to make, feel free to state it's a temporary transfer and let me know the deadline. Even if it's my second great grandmother that I feel emotionally tied to because of family stories and photos, I will ALWAYS honor the courtesy by transferring it back in a timely manner within your specified time limit.

Asa Hammond 1786 - 1843
Hi Pauline,
Thanks for all your work & postings to this site! I am working on Asa Hammond's timeline. Asa was my husband's 3rd great grand uncle, brother to Ebenezer Hammond 1790 - 1862, my husband's 3rd ggfather. I have 2 original letters written from Asa to Ebenezer dated 1819 & 1830. They were written from Claiborne, Ala. The 1819 letter gives a location of Dobs' Ferry, Claiborne, Alabama Territory & speaks mostly of the surrounding country, farming & prices of the day. The 1830 letter is extremely difficult to transcribe but I have been able to decipher that Asa was, at that time the Justice of the Peace. Also, he has some derogatory statements about the "negroes". He writes, "This could be an easy & delightful country to live in were the negroes all out of it." Also, "... the negroes with all the scolding & whipping ___ ____ ____ upon them will not do as much work as one good ___ white girl of the north but will steal, waste & destroy as much as would support a common family." I myself was sickened when reading these awful comments but then I was very confused about the statement on Asa's Find a Grave memorial #95966620 which reads "After losing his wife in 1835..... preferring to raise his children in a non-slave part of the country." This left me with the impression that Asa was against slavery but his letter to Ebenezer certainly didn't read that way. Would you be willing to share with me the source of the information in that paragraph? Just trying to sort out these Hammonds... :) I have lots of information on them on my private tree on Ancestry.
Thanks so much for your work & for any light you can shed on this mystery for me.

Thank you for posting this gravestone photo of a long-lost cousin! I have been searching for his final resting place for some time and was thrilled to find he is in Washington and not California, as some family history held. Keep up the excellent work!

Campbell Family photographs
Hi Pauline, You've posted some really wonderful photographs for some of the Campbell families in the Campbell Cemetery, Loami, Sangamon County, Illinois. I wonder if I could have your permission to use them on my family tree at Ancestry.com? These Campbells are all in one way or another related to John Campbell (1791-1875) who was my 4th g-grandfather's son (Jeremiah Campbell Sr. from Tennessee)--I guess that makes him my 3rd g-grand uncle. I've done extensive research on this Campbell line for years, and these are the first photos I've found of anyone in that family. I'll happily abide by your decision, whether it's yes or no. I'm very grateful to see these photos, whatever you decide. Of course if you let me use them, I will credit you with posting them here at Find-a-Grave. All the best, Becky (labwriter).

Kenneth Thornburg & Grace
He's buried at Fairmount:

Thornburg, Kenneth W., d/b 12/8/1995, 75y, bur. #19-479-12

He's buried with his Mother Grace Howard (?)

Howard, Grace, no dates given, 60y, bur. #19-479-11
Howard, Charles L., no dates given, bur. #19-479-21

The plot location 11 and 12 mean there are two people in one grave.

I found online the misinformation of burial location "Spokane Veteran's Cemetery" which does not exist.

AS to Grace 1958 death, I can't find any source to confirm yet alone a real date/location.

Martin J. DePriest
Regarding grave marker for Martin J. DePriest in Rocky Mount Cemetery, Crenshaw County, Alablama.
We think it is wonderful that you have volunteered to make this information available that is on Martin DePriest's marker. However, when we look at the picture of the marker, it appears that you have listed his date of birth as 1820 instead of 1818 as it appears on the marker. Is it possible for you to edit your information?
Thank you,
Ruth Stirling

P.S. Martin DePriest would be my huaband's great, great grandfather.
