Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've designated myself as the family genealogist and I joined FindAGrave.com after visiting my grandmother's grave in Covington, LA. Because I have access to Ancestry.com, I try to get information there to add to the pages I create.

If possible, I let other people on this website know of any additions or corrections I find to the profiles that they create. I hope I do not offend anyone (sometimes my wife says I'm too picky).

Unfortunately, I don't have as much free time as I would like to go around to the cemeteries around here; I am more than happy to avoid cemeteries others want to "claim" as theirs - there's more than enough to go around.

Any pictures and information I upload can be used by anyone on their own genealogy pages. Email me if you find any corrections on my stuff. I try to get the right information but occaisionally there are people of the same names at the same place during similar times.

If I add a memorial page and you're a relative and want to manage that page, let me know, I will be happy to transfer the management to you.

RE: Clyde Burns Campbell
Yep. That's what I did, also.

RE: Clyde Burns Campbell
One way is exactly what it is. I wanted clarification today, but I cannot ask for it.

RE: Clyde Burns Campbell
Just a note. Lin contacted me today on a totally unrelated memorial that I recently created in a different cemetery. I didn't fully understand the message, but she stated that census information doesn't belong on a findagrave memorial. Kinda interesting since census information was not on that memorial. But it does clarify her position.
I've also been digging around my family tree to see why Joe Shuler's gravestone would have been left on (or by) the English family monument (re: your photo on Joe Shuler Memorial #30035451, Campbellsville Cemetery) I don't have a clue, since Joe Shuler does not have any Englishes in his family tree. I've got to conclude that it is a coincidence. He married Janie Campbell, then some years after she died, he married her sister Blanche Campbell. I would have expected his headstone to be with theirs, perhaps somewhere near the wives' parents, Clarence and Sallie B. Campbell.

Thank you for letting me know about the duplicate photos. I removed one.

RE: Clyde Burns Campbell
Hey,Ron. I understand how you feel, with your having done research and put it so nicely on the memorial page. I have that information on my family tree at Ancestry.com. I wouldn't want to delete that, either! But I'm not tangling with Lin again on this. I have about ten edits I am hoping she will make. Her lengthy list of rules make it clear that she will not deal with bulk requests, transfers, or repeated requests. I've already violated all of these, but still have hope that the essential edits (I had to prioritize) will be accomplished eventually. I don't know about the higher ups at Findagrave, being a newbie contributor. I really don't want to go over someone's head. I have often seen duplicates (Lizzie Burns is the other one I'm aware of at Campbellsville Cemetery), and have decided it doesn't really matter. But thanks for hanging in there and explaining the options. I'm certainly learning a lot!

RE: Clyde Burns Campbell memorial
She already told me "no", so I've transferred back Clyde Burns Campbell to you to do as you see fit. No harm is done if the duplicates stand. Burns left no descendants, so it's unlikely people will be relying on the info you so faithfully researched. He was my grandmother's brother, and among the family, he is well-known and documented. Thanks for the conversation.

Clyde Burns Campbell memorial
Okay, Ron, I'm quite new to this management thing, so be patient. It turns out that Clyde Burns Campbell's memorial is a duplicate. The memorial for C. Burns Campbell at Campbellsville Cemetery is the same person and was created in 2008. I cannot delete the 2013 one created by you because it was not created by me. (I tried.) The creator of the 2008 one cannot or will not delete that one. So can you jump in here and solve the dilemma? (This is not urgent or earth-shaking; the world will not collapse if the duplicate memorials remain, but in the interest of tidy-ness, it would be better not to have duplicates.) I'm thinking I saw some other duplicates in this cemetery, but I'm not pursuing it. I'm tired of ruffling feathers! Beverly
