Bio and Links
Bio Photo Before posting a message on my page of your outrage because I may disagree with your edit/suggest a correction, please take a moment to reacquaint yourself with what Find A Grave is about. Here's the excerpt from FAG found in the Help section:

What is Find A Grave?

Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave must fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

Find a Grave memorials may contain rich content including pictures, biographies and more specific information. Members can leave remembrances via 'virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience.

Find A Grave is a resource for anyone in finding the final disposition of family, friends, and 'famous' individuals.


Please know that I will not respond and will immediately delete inappropriate messages.

All photos added under my name on Find A Grave are protected by copyright. Therefore I do not authorize the use of any of my photos.

We have a wonderful 'Edit' tab on each memorial for any edits, links and/or information you would like added to a memorial. Only requests received in this manner will be reviewed and considered. Please note that I may include your name and contact information in the bio section so that others may contact you if they have questions.

Transfer Requests

Before requesting a transfer, review Find A Grave guidelines. If you qualify under these guidelines only, send your request using the 'edit' tab and include your exact relationship with the lineage to you. Please keep in mind that many memorials I've entered are relatives and, therefore, not subject to transfer.

RE: Wike vs. Wyke
Thank you for your help!! With the addition of your note, people will at least be aware of the two spellings and know to check both. I did find one other record where her father's name was spelled Wyke - Hexie's info in the U. S. Social Security Applicaations & Claims Index, 1936-2007. That doesn't necessarily mean it is right, but that source is more "official" than some of the others.

RE: Generic Marker Photo
Thanks Diane...looking forward to seeing your updates....I haven't worked my Gadd ancestors for some time, but I know there are some gaps and maybe you will be able to fill them in for me. Take care and I've added you to my Find A Grave friends and to my Gadd resources.

RE: Generic Marker Photo
Hi Diane...Gadd Family is also part of my family related through my Salmans somewhere along the line we are also related! Steve McManaway, also from Cambridge and also a Salmans cousin, walked the cemetery back in 2011 when we didn't get any responses for a after we did not get a response to add the notation to the memorial that no gravestone or marker existed, we added the No Marker with a caption that also gave more bio information, without thinking about the Find A Grave rule/restriction. Sorry about that...but just so you know, we did also write to Find A Grave requesting that possibly they could come up with "something" that would help those of us that keep requesting photo's when no markers exist.

Anyway...thank you for sending me a note...and as you have requested, I have removed the "unmarked grave Marker" from Mary Mercer Gadd 58236008 and John Gadd 58235937 from the Center Baptist Cemetery in Cambridge, OH. I have added the caption with family history that was attached to those markers with a Flower and a note so that the captioned information is not lost.

I didn't find any others in this cemetery...however, if you find any more, please feel free to let me know...again, appreciate your hard work and look forward to seeing any updates that you post for our Gadd Family.

RE: James T. McNeeley
Hi Diane:
Thank you for your response to my post. James A. Walker Sr. was my father and Grandfather McNealey lived the last three years of his life with my parents after he broke his hip. My mother was Reva McNealey Walker. I wonder when some of that family changed the spelling of their name from McNealey to McNeeley. My Grandmother McNealey is Catherine who is buried in Mt. Jackson Cemetery with her parents Christian and Mary Long. My Mother wanted her father William McNealey to be buried there, but there was no lot available close to her Mother and the only lots available were close the creek and she didn't want him buried in one of those that were subject to flooding. Are you related to James McNeeley? If so, we might be distant cousins.
Take care,
John Walker

James T. McNeeley
Hi Diane:
My name is John Walker and I am the grandson of William M. McNealey buried at Floral Park Cemetery and I noticed that it shows a link to him on the post of the picture of James T. McNeeley. My oldest brother always said that Grandpa had a brother buried at Mt. Jackson Cemetery, but I could never find a McNealey there except our Grandmother Catherine. I would appreciate very much any information that you can supply about this side of my family.

RE: Marker Photo @ Custer Nat'l - Cecil Martin
Hello Diane,

I have removed the two photos of The Custer National Cemetery that I added the Sgt's memorial. One was at the entrance to the cemetery explaining that soles from the Indian Wars thru Vietnam were all placed here together. The other was taken near the base of the of the American flag that is shown flying over the Sgt's grave marker depicting the view of his grave. Those photos will be added to The Custer National Cemetery site.

This is truly a special resting place and magical place.

Please help me out if you have time
Hello there! My name is Shayna, you uploaded my great grandfather Cecil Thomas Martin(137661742). Quite thankful for that because I am on a dead end search. My grandpa is Dade William Martin (I have it pending that Cecil is his father, because he is) he has brothers that are not on the site (died in wyoming) Trying to shorten this up. My grandpa did not know anything about his grandma or grandpa. If you could find anything out about Cecil(parents) and add it to here, that would be amazing!! I don't have a first or last name for either (my grandpa thought Cecil mom name could be CORA) other then Missouri that is all the information I have.. You had the county where he was born(I did not) and You just seem to know what you are doing, I could really use some help. Pretty please!

John Gadd
I'm doing research for my two nieces. They are descendants of William Thomas Gadd and his father John Gadd. I had seen a posting from you online on Find a Grave that you were looking for the death and burial information on John Gadd whom you indicated died in Kansas probably between 1875 - 1878. I was wondering if in the meantime you have learned anything more about John Gadd, and if so, if you would mind sharing? I'm working to give my nieces the most accurate information I can find. Thank you.

Mrs. Thomas and Mary Thompson
Thank you so much for pointing out that Mrs. Thomas and Mary Thompson were the same person. I had gotten the information from the Galena newspaper and the newspapers didn't always have the names correct. I have deleted the memorial for Mrs. Thomas. Ella
