|Bio and Links|
|I enjoy History and became interested in genealogy in 2001 when helping my mother search for her family. I try my hardest to post only facts on these memorials, if you do find a mistake please contact me and I'll fix it.|
Your welcome to use the information and cemetery photos I have added on here (just indicate who provided the photo and information and that it is being used with permission.) I have seen many people on ancestry.com take my photos and misuse them and also place them with the wrong people.
I would like to bring to the ATTENTION of fellow researchers on here who work very hard walking the cemeteries taking photos and posting memorials for everyone's benefit on here, I know it takes a lot of time and energy and gas and giving of one's self, I am thankful for all those who summit memorials on here BUT I have in the last 3 years found that many of my close relatives that have past away already have a memorial made for them by someone else who is not related to them. I am finding memorials for my family members made the day of their burial or the day after by others on here who are not related to them.(Do you scour the Obits in the paper and run to make the memorials before our loved ones are even buried?) When you lose a family member you are grieving and are not thinking of making memorials the day of their burial or the day after. It would be polite and respectful if you would wait a month before you place your memorials on here to GIVE the grieving family member time to place their own memorial for their loved one on here. I know there are FAG guidelines but many memorial posters on here don't follow the guidelines and refuse transfers. I have been ignored many times when asking for a transfer for sibling, parents and grandparents by people who are not even related. It seems some people are just out for the numbers, how many memorials they can contribute. Lets all remember what FAG is here for and be respectful of others, and PLEASE don't make duplicates of memorials when you are transcribing the cemeteries. PLEASE check to see if there is one already made for that person. I am coming across too too many duplicates on here and many that are not willing to delete their duplicate contributions.

|Sandy||Find A GRAVE!!|
I have been reading your BIO. I must admit I agree with YOU WHOLE- HEARTEDLY.. This site is SUPPOSED to be Find-A GRAVE but has turned into Find-an OBITUARY. SOME PEOPLE have NO LIFE apparently. My husb. recently passed. You Guessed, before the week was out, there it was, photo and all names of ALL the LIVING relatives. I wish SOMETHING could be done about this. SORRY, but this touched a nerve, just had to get this OUT. Sandy

|Lynn Settle||Hattie Blake|
You took a picture of the grave of Hattie Blake Find a Grave # 85181438. Can you tell me what it says on the tombstone, is it just the dates and her name?
|Wanda Taylor||Robert Dorris son of William the Patriot|
I am trying to help a friend prove her lineage to William Dorris, who I believe you are also descended from. On your memorial for Robert Dorris, married to Jenny Rippy, you indicate that Robert is William's son - and we believe that to be true as well. However, we need to prove that link - because William had a brother Robert (wife Mary) who had a son also named Robert.
What evidence do you have that the Robert in your memorial is the son of William Dorris and Eleanor Brown. I have her pension file naming their children - but the birth year is a year off from the tombstone pictured. Can you help me?
Thanks for all your hard work and attention to detail.

|rose courbois||Thomas Newington Wills|
I am researching the same Thomas N. Wills born 1822.
I believe he was married a 3rd time in Indiana to a Almira Gannon (Cavan) in 1857. Add to the list of children are Annie,Jenie,Amanda,Ida,all born in the 1860s. His last 2 children are Clarence,and Edith F. born 1879 and 1881.
I have Thomas born in Kentucky, his father Eija born in North Carolina.
The family moved to Antioch, Caifornia
I am trying to find Elija's father and if the family immigrated from Scotland at some point.
If you have any other information on Thomas and his side of the family would love to hear it.
Thank you, Rose
