|Bio and Links|
|I appreciate those who have contributed memorials, even when the memorials they've added aren't relatives....or even acquaintances. I've certainly benefited from many of these submissions. These submissions have also played a part in genealogy research I've done for friends.|
At this point, most of the memorials I've added have been because of a personal (and emotional) connection (family, friends or on behalf of friends).
Update, OCT. 2014: I have recently added some memorials for individuals I don't know and am not related to. In general, when searching Find a Grave for my friends or family members occasionally my attention may have been drawn to something: it might have been an unidentified baby, family members not linked, and/or missing dates for birth or death (there are so many of them!) Fortunately, many of these problems were resolved often after doing some research and then sending edits (or bios). In some instances I did create some memorials for individuals that are are not known to me - either as family member or friend. I'll be glad to consider transfers (outside FaG guidelines) - just ask!
March 2015 - still here. Not adding much these days - I think I've lost yet another memorial (that I had included obit and supplemental info with) - likely to a merge. There are FAG'ers that focus on being 'the first' to create a memorial, and that's it. No links, no obits, no details. Yes, I know I can send edits, but then I have to monitor if they accept or reject the edits, etc. They will click 'accept' and yet not enter the info. Or reject for whatever reason. Or - just not do anything. I was hoping when ancestry took over FAG that since ancestry's purpose is genealogy, that they would encourage more than basic stats in memorials. In cases where I've added memorials or info to memorials of those I don't know it's been with an eye to genealogy - to provide info to researchers ... just hasn't worked out real well.
I DO have to add that I've 'met' some like-minded, really pleasant, helpful contributors and I really, really appreciate you and your efforts.
--PLEASE I appreciate and enjoy comments from other contributors. But if your comment/s are such that I should reply - PLEASE don't leave them if you can't be contacted. while my email isn't displayed I have enabled leave message feature, but there are some contributors who are free with their comments but offer no way to reply. TY!

|K S||RE: Martha Mattie Weddington Hatfield|
This is the post I came across. I was under the impession their memorials had been deleted because of the mix up with the photo:
The photo posted "of [this] Ephriam is same photo posted for Ephraim (1765-1847.) Links to parents Valentine HATFIELD and Martha WEDDINGTON - memorials have been removed.

I'm so sorry ... I guess I thought you would automatically be able to see whose grave information I was referring to. The Memorial # is 137626064. Within Orria Mount Ray Baker's information, the following people are listed: Nellie B. (JAN 1881, TX); Lemmie (JUL 1993 TX). I think Lemmie should be July 1893 maybe, instead of July 1993. Just wanted to bring your attention to it. :-)
Thank you ....

You mentioned the 2 children of James J. Ray and wife Mary. Lemmie has July 1993 TX next to her name and I'm assuming it should be July 1893 TX.
I am transferring Mr. Gingles to you, tho my eyes are better, my main computer still has a ptoblem so I need to use the I-Pad. Thanks
|Michael Hague||RE: James Walter HAGUE# 151995657|
I have no known relation with James. Source for memorial was from FamilySearch.org . I have transferred James to your care seeing you are related. Thanks... Michael
|Ruth Smith||Paul Keller|
Hello- thought I would let you know my husband and I were out at Zion Lutheran Church Cemetery near Gordonville, Mo. today and took a picture of the grave of Paul Keller. Your memorial page is very nice - now your picture is not at the top so I wondered if that is o.k. with you or maybe you can download it and submit it again so it will be at the top. This cemetery is one of the nicest ones I've been to for pictures. We still are not finished and I took over 100 pictures today. Have a good day. Ruth Smith
|K S||Martha Mattie Weddington Hatfield|
I noticed you mentioned the memorials for Valentine Hatfield (1789 - 1872) & Martha Weddington Hatfield (1789 - 1867) have been removed. Do you know why that is? Martha Mattie Weddington Hatfield was a sister a x great grandfather. Valentine..the son of Ephraim 1764. I'm wondering if the link was wrong somehow.

Your Welcome.. I like doing it
|Lovely Bonz||RE: Russell Clarence Horn|
Thanks for the reply... I feel better now :)
I remember now that I look at this memorial, I just wanted to walk around this pretty cemetery, and I was hoping that he had family. I am so happy that his cousin is looking after him. This is a beautiful cemetery, and it was just a lark that I stopped there that day and photographed a few graves.

I've transferred management of this memorial to you. I'm so sorry I didn't know about the edits you'd suggested! They didn't send an email that there were edits pending... the first email I had was of your transfer request. I don't have many memorials, so I don't actually visit the site every day, just when I get an email.
Have a good day.
