Holly Lynn Bobo. Murder Victim in West Tennessee Memorial Question

Hello A.J.;

I hope this finds you well. Thank You very much for your kindness and help on the following Memorial for 20 year old, Her name -

Holly Lynn Bobo #125936236 memorial number.

The Contributor, 'searcher', questions as many of us do, why recently Anything he puts on her Bio Page Memorial it is being REMOVED? Including one picture of the Ribbons , pink and green Ribbons represent Justice for Holly, that was removed. Why? In addition, rearranged her memorial pictures, he is confused as we all are. Now each picture I posted is removed. Since, this was noticed today, I deleted two, I had posted Find a Grave left on her Memorial.

Last night, on 20/20 Featured the abuction, rape, gunshot, dismemberment of her Precious Person, to possibly make it
Impossible to locate any of her remains. Possibly, Find a Grave considering her Case high profile, while it is, and on every Talk Show, News broadcast, GMA., Nancy Grace., etc., a Movie about Holly was done. Her Memorial isn't not listed as Famous despite the news media coverage continues.. to obtain.

Perhaps, you can assist in explaining how he is to post anything on her Memorial if anything? He is baffled. [ Non-relative now that her Memorial has been placed with #8. ].

Nothing was posted by searcher that was considered gruesome just a Wikipedia link [ now removed], her trial was being set then he added that one in her case committed suicide, two have Upcoming trial dates pending, Zach Adams was convicted Guilty on All 8 counts, Life W/out Parole. This was removed from her Memorial page and he asked me
Why? I sponsored her Memorial. I don't know Why the removal continues. Can you please help?

Thank You.

Autumn Blessings

Memorial's, Contributor's Information Protection
Hello Lynn,
Maybe you and Jim can help.
I have been on Find A Grave since 2012.
Through the family first policy , I was able to access many memorial's in 2012. I maintained
those memorial's, and created memorial's,
some in 2012, 2013.
This year, 2017. I decided to transfer some
of my memorial's to Find A Grave, whether
I maintained them or created them.
Each memorial I added the information,
added a biography for each one, then put
my name and contributor number at the bottom
of each page, giving me credit.
These memorial's are family
member's. The families are Lewing, Lewis,
Dees, Richardson.
Blewfor Lewing #29749429
Miamma Virginia Dupree Lewing #29749430
These two I maintained since 2012, this year
I transferred to Find A Grave to maintain, manage.

Martha Lewing Peters #113271850
James Monroe Lewing #113270976
Marion Lewing #1085611630
Joseph Pinkney Lewing #113272499
These four Memorial's I created in 2013,
I added information, and added a biography
for each memorial, then put my name and
contributor number at the bottom of each
page, giving me credit.
I transferred these to Find A Grave this
year, 2017, to maintain, and manage.
Here is the problem.
A contributor #47164320 Pat Berel,
somehow accessed these memorial's above,
and accessed the Dees, Lewis, Richardson
memorial's, deleted all of my work,
all my information on each memorial,
discrediting my work, erasing everything
on each memorial.

(I have always known when you transfer
a memorial to Find A Grave, then Find A Grave
maintain's the memorial, and Find A Grave
will not transfer the memorial.)
How she accessed these memorial's, I don't
I transferred all, a lot of memorial's to
Find A Grave this year.
when you go to these memorial page's,
Pat Berel #47164320 maintain's them, HOW?
When I transferred them to Find A Grave.

All of my work undone, the time and effort
All I can do is ask you or Jim to restore
my information and Find A Grave maintain those memorial's.
It is truly disheartening, disappointing,
embarrassing to see all of your work discredited, undone, erased, Gone!
It is not right.
In my book that to me is a slap in my
face, that is as low as you can go to
do that to a contributor's work, discredit
my work. Something needs to be done.

Adam Markley
What do you do to revove a grave when there is none.
A relation of mine said there was a grave for Adam
Markley in Emmitsville, Md.
I have walked the sites and there is none, I walked and talked with the Sexton and we can find no records, and the History Society.

I have tried to order a copy so I could prove there is no grave.

Hi Lynn
I am wondering if there is some way that the provinces of Canada can be added like the states so that the search is narrowed down.

Can you ask Jim why he declines to edit his famous memorials, ie one has a duplicate and another he won't link parents to. Thanks

finding a grave/cemetery
I know there is a list of people that assist in finding grave sites but Im unable to locate it. I'm hoping this is it! Trying to find info on:
Emily (Emma) Cortista (maiden)Ward (married) Setter. She was born 1848 (Feb) in Canada then traveled to Denver CO where she later passed. I find her living in Denver up until 1928. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you for your time.

Genealogist's Christmas Eve
'Twas the night before Christmas
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even my spouse.

The dining room table with clutter was spread
With pedigree charts and with letters which said...
"Too bad about the data for which you wrote;
Sank in a storm on an ill-fated boat."

Stacks of old copies of wills and such
Were proof that my work had become too much.
Our children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads.

And I at my table was ready to drop
From work on my album with photos to crop.
Christmas was here, and such was my lot
That presents and goodies and toys I'd forgot.

Had I not been busy with grandparents' wills,
I'd not have forgotten to shop for such thrills,
While others bought gifts to bring Christmas cheers,
I'd spent time researching those birth dates and years.

While I was thus musing about my sad plight,
A strange noise on the lawn gave me such a great fright.
Away to the window I flew in a flash,
Tore open the drapes and yanked up the sash.

When what with my wondering eyes should appear,
But an overstuffed sleigh and eight small reindeer.
Up to the house top the reindeer they flew,
With a sleigh full of toys and 'ole Santa Claus, too.

And then in a twinkle, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of thirty-two hoofs.
As I drew in my head, and bumped it on the sash,
Down the cold chimney fell Santa--KER-RASH!

"Dear" Santa had come from the roof in a wreck,
And tracked soot on the carpet, (I could wring his short neck!)
Spotting my face, good 'ole Santa could see
I had no Christmas spirit you'd have to agree.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
And filled all the stockings, (I felt like a jerk).
Here was Santa, who'd brought us such gladness and joy:
When I'd been too busy for even one toy.

He spied my research on the table all spread
"A genealogist!" He cried! (My face was all red!)
"Tonight I've met many like you," Santa grinned,
As he pulled from his sack a large book he had penned.

I gazed with amusement--the cover it read
Genealogy Lines for Which You Have Plead.
"I know what it's like as a genealogy bug."
He said as he gave me a great Santa hug.

"While the elves make the sleighful of toys I now carry,
I do some research in the North Pole Library!
A special treat I am thus able to bring,
To genealogy folk who can't find a thing."

"Now off you go to your bed for a rest,
I'll clean up the house from this genealogy mess."
As I climbed up the stairs full of gladness and glee,
I looked back at Santa who'd brought much to me.

While settling in bed, I heard Santa's clear whistle,
To his team, which then rose like the down of a thistle.
And I heard him exclaim as he flew out of sight,
"Family history is Fun! Merry Christmas! Goodnight!"
