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
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.

|Sue Hall||Sarah and Henry Hall gravesites|
My husband is a direct relative of Henry and Sarah Hall. We live out of state and are planning a trip to Illinois in a few weeks. We would like to be able to visit the gravesites of Henry and Sarah Hall. My husband is familiar with Campbell Cemetery, but would like to know how to find their gravesites. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Thanks for the photo....question, when was the headstone installed? Or when did you take the photo? Some years ago there had been none.

Hi pauline, I found a death notice for him in our local paper on April 14th, 1929 so I modified his year of death. Sue
|HCV||Asa Hammond 1786 - 1843|
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 the Ostrander transfers! I have updated and added obits to all of them. Thank you for all the work you have done on Find A Grave in my home state of Washington. I haven't lived there in almost 40 years.

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!
