Bio and Links
Bio Photo I no longer make changes, additions, transfers from messages left on my contributor page. Please follow FindAGrave procedures by using the Edit tab on the memorial page to request changes, additions, request transfers, etc.

Thank you for following FindAGrave procedures.

Please ask permission before posting my personal family photographs, photographs I have taken of grave stones or biographical material I have written from my memorial pages on this site to or any other website or personal webpages.

I follow FindAGrave guidelines for transfers of memorials:

Second, Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Please see FindAGrave Frequently Asked questions for more information:

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed information and photos for my memorials.

RE: Susan Emeline Hamilton Clark 113322197
I am researching again. Doing family research for my cousin's wife. I work on Ancestry, but try not to use any info from other trees, since many copy and don't research. I can not find my notes, as to where I got the dates or for sure county of her birth. Roane may of been an error on my part, since that is where they married.

Many trees have her birth as Dec 4, 1855, but I am going by census and her death record for the year of 1858. In 1870 she is in Dyer County, Tennessee. Her parents are Jas (James?) and Callie Hamilton, she is 11 and birth is listed as about 1859. 1880 she is listed as 21 born in about 1859. Unable to locate in 1900. 1910 she is listed as 52 born about 1858, same for 1920, she is listed as 62 born about 1858, which is what her death record says. So the last 25 years of her life she got a year older.

If you prefer not to do the edit, that fine. What you have added, really helps any family members to be able to find her. Thank you for all you have done on Find A Grave.

Hope all is well your way. Last week I took a whole bunch of teenagers I teach in an early morning religion class down to cemetery. They went around and took pictures for memorials who didn't have pics. They all seemed to enjoy the project. I found more people who need memorials:

Jayne L. Elegar Oct 18, 1910-Jun 6, 1987 (wife of Augustus Elegar #132013335)

Ronan C.Grady Jr. Jul 14, 1921-Dec 30-1992 and his wife Barbara Jones Grady 1923-1991. Their plot is Section X, A-33

Ernest H.Wison March 17, 1902-March 18, 1968 and his wife Blanche L. Feb 21, 1901-March 20,1973. Their plot Section X, A, 32

Olive Emerson Payne (Dec 20, 1896-June 7, 1983) wife of Francis Wilby #41804863

Thank you! I have a few more, so I'll get them to you when I get back home.

Just personal family records. Her mother's father was brother to my 2nd great grandmother.

I would agree on this info, unfortunately it was that way when I got it and I don't have correct information to fix it. If you have any I would love to see it.

Have a great day!

Sanctimonious jerk. I told you my update might not have been sure after all, but it's a gosh darn middle name otherwise lost forever. Yes, 20 years ago I was likely to make those kinds of mistakes. As I said, this memorial has absolutely no importance to me. I was trying to be kind.

I have not used GenealogyBank, and I don't see it in Fairfax County Library resources here in Fairfax but I can ask them. I use what I can find for the older newspapers from Newer obits have not found a good source to access. Thanks for the tip and I will check, but since I don't see it listed on Library website, not hopeful. Thanks. ~ J

RE: Ethel Araminta Staveley Walsh 119452351
Thanks -great bio - amazing how a small bit of information can get you into the right obituary or newspaper article on a person. Let me know if you find out any more on her husband John. I only found him in the US Census, not an obit or any family info other than what is on the census. ~ J
