|Bio and Links|
One of the best features of Find A Grave is that it provides a forum where years of genealogical research can be shared with others. Please let me know if you have additional biographical or statistical information for any of my memorials, as it is always welcome. The wealth of knowledge that others have sent to me through Find A Grave is astounding. |
If you are aware of links for parents and/or spouses that I have not yet added, I would appreciate it if you would use the edit tab to leave the name and memorial number of the person or people who should be linked.
Thanks to all those who have generously shared your family stories and beautiful photos with me. I sincerely appreciate being allowed to add them to the memorials for your loved ones. The pictures and studio portraits that for years have been carefully preserved in family photo albums, add such a wonderful dimension to Find A Grave. They help create a memorial tribute that is all the more special and meaningful.
Before asking for a memorial transfer, please determine whether or not this is really necessary. Transfers of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections even if you are not the memorial manager. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a transfer request. It would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire family trees.
Transfers will only be considered if they comply strictly with Find A Grave guidelines. You must state your exact relationship to the deceased. People who request transfers and then fail to improve and maintain the memorial are certainly not honoring the memory of their family member.
Bulk surname transfers will not be considered under any circumstances.
Unless otherwise noted, all bios on my memorials were researched and written by me. Post-1922 verbatim obituaries have not been included in order to avoid copyright violations.
I have put a lot of time and effort into my memorials on Find A Grave. I strive to make sure that the information on them is as accurate as possible, but I am realistic and know that mistakes do happen. Please use the edit tab to leave a message regarding any errors or omissions that need to be corrected.
By working together, we can continue to build Find A Grave into a better and better site!
Note: 30 Sep 2013 marked a very sad day for all Find A Grave contributors when the founder of this website sold us out to ancestry.com.
I will continue to add to and maintain my memorials as long as Find A Grave remains a completely free website, open to all without charge.

|Ravenwolf||RE: Ray Fisher|
Thank you so much for adding everything. I did a memorial for Harry Fisher and sent you the edit to add him as Ray's father.
|Kathy Sloan||Find A Grave Memorial# 49478857|
I believe this entry name needs to be corrected to Louise per the grave headstone NOT Louisa.
Can you tell me what records you have that indicate her name as Louisa?
|Mark Atterson||RE: Jordan Family|
No problem at all. Thank you so much for your responsiveness Lynn.
|carol jones||Cooper Bennett McClellan|
Hi Lynn, I have a question about Cooper Bennett McClellan #345681680 I am searching for both his wife and his parents. His wife and his mother's names are very similar on the memorial. Would you be related to him? Can I ask where you found this information?
Copper's great great granddaughter
|Jennifer Steckley||RE: Photo of Solomon Butcher|
Thank you for your prompt reply, Cuz! I suspect you are right; Katherine's marker is probably lost to time.
I am descended from Solomon and Katherine's daughter Nancy Jane, who married a Robertson. My father's mother was a Robertson.
Looking at the number of children these early pioneers produced, the number of people we are related to is astounding!
From which of Solomon and Katherine's children are you descended?
|Jennifer Steckley||Photo of Solomon Butcher|
Hi Lynn, I see that you are the owner of the findagrave record for Solomon Butcher, # 20924450. Solomon is my three times great grandfather. If possible, I would love to see the entire photograph with Solomon cropped for the record. Also, I assume Katherine, his wife isn't buried next to him... or at least with any kind of marker. If you can share the full photo, I would love to see it.
I agree. It keeps the brain from stagnating! Thanks again.
Thanks so much for the heads up! I've been adding names to Find A Grave for years, and never realized that. I'm seriously very pleased that you took the time to mention this!
The death date for Massey is wrong, too, but that is not your problem.
Have a great rest of your weekend!
Thanks for replying. I wasn't sure who left it, so I contacted both of you.

Thank you so much for putting up such a lovely memorial for Harold Drummond. His 1st wife, Mable, was my aunt. I appreciate the effort you put into it.
