If I have offended anyone, please let me know and I will remove the memorial of your loved one. If you aren't a part of Find A Grave, you can still contact me through the edit tab of the memorial. I don't mean to offend anyone. All memorials are created out of respect. The purpose of me adding names is because I believe that people should never be forgotten, and also I like to help people who are searching for their ancestors. I am so thankful for Find A Grave because not only have I found many of my ancestors, I have found many related family members alive.

I will be happy to transfer memorials. You MUST state the relationship with your ID number. All RUDE requests will be ignored!

Duplicates - These are errors, and not created on purpose. I search before I create a memorial and after every time. Please bring any errors or duplicates to my attention so I can correct them. If I have created a memorial and you create a duplicate, do not send me a message that the one I created is a dupe and for me to delete. I will not delete any memorials if you created a dupe. Don't create a dupe memorial just because you're related. If you are family, kindly ask for a transfer or you can add photos and send me information to be added and I'll be glad to add it. Please read the FAQ's for this site on creating memorials.

Feel free to use my photos 📷 as long as you give me credit and do not make any money off them.

RE: Memorial Transfer
Please do not jump to conclusions. Yes, I deleted my duplicate memorial, and you then transferred ownership of the memorial to me. I thank you for that.
Afterwards, I contacted Find A Grave about a memorial going up before next of kin had a reasonable time to post it themselves. Their reply was as follows:
We allow immediate family members to request removal of memorials. I can recreate this memorial for you under your membership so that the content that has been added will not be lost. I will remove the biography if you like, so that you may add a correct biography.
It was signed by Katrina, Curator.
I did not reply to the email, but they obviously removed your memorial and replaced it with the one that I had deleted. I'm sorry for the confusion.
All that should matter is that my brother George has the correct biography, not who created it.

You asked for a picture of this grave. I spoke with the management of Oak Wood Cemetery Annex, and he informed me that no headstone has been laid as of yet. Would you like a picture of the grave still? Please let me know, it is with the rest of the Stevens Family.

Please hand my brother's grave over to me
Hi Dana,

Jack Gentry Stearns at Hillview Memorial Cemetery was my brother. How about hand his site over to me. I'm doing genealogy work for his only daughter.

Hope the new medicine works well for you - Mark had asthma since he was born. I still can not believe it - his Mom paid for 2 autopsies to verify that was what caused his death. His rescue inhaler was in his pocket when he got to the hospital. It just happened so quick. But I will say a little prayer for you if you don't mind, can't hurt, lol. Thank you for visiting Marks memorial.

Thanks, again, Dana. By the way, I completely understand how contrary computers can be! Have a blessed day.

RE: Sarah J. Lamberth
I do not know where Sally is buried, but I do have that she was married twice. He was Elisha Francis Tidwell born in March 1851 in Chambers County, AL. After looking at a couple of census records, I see that she married Tidwell between 1900 and 1910 probably in either Tallapoosa or Elmore Co. They lived at New Site in 1910 but in Elmore county in 1920. Sally died Jan. 29, 1928 in Central, Elmore Co., AL.

Hope this helps. If you find where she is buried, please let me know.
