Epperson Graves
My name is David Epperson and I stumbled upon looking for some other relatives. I see you are the owner of several of my immediate relatives and I have submitted more information for their display on July 25, 2016. How long does this take to get updated? I would like to be the owner of my immediate relatives, Epperson and others; how do I go about this?

Hi, Celeste -- On Feb. 22 and on March 22, I sent you SAC Edit email messages re: Irene, since I have her obituary, along with several edits to make to her memorial. Maybe these messages didn't arrive in your email. I submitted edits to you on Irene's children, which you accepted. Please consider transferring Irene to me to maintain. If you prefer not to transfer her memorial to me, please reply letting me know, and I'll send her obit and other edits to you. Thanks for your consideration.

Mina Lucas

I saw you are the administrator for the memorial of Mina Lucas as well as researching the Lucas surname and I was just curious how you were related to her. She was my Great Great Aunt, the older sister of my Great Grandmother, Nettie Curtis Harbaugh.
Also, I was going through some old photos from my Grandpa's side of the family on Christmas Day and I found a photo of Mina taken on her 99th Birthday. I made sure to scan and add that to her memorial.

I wanted to thank you for granting me permission to use your photos in my family tree. I haven't been on here a lot this summer, thus, I am slow to reply but thank you very much for your work and generosity! Eva

Celeste, I am writing to ask permission to use any photos of my family and ancestors as I work on my own family tree and genealogy. Would you please consider my request and let me know? And thank you! Eva
