Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started doing this research on the cemeteries from the area where I was raised, but once addicted, I go on and on. The memories of those from home are wonderful. I've even been able to go back in my photo albums and find photos to add to many memorials. I have no specific family I'm looking for, I just want to keep those memories alive.

Most of the contributors on Find A Grave have been wonderful to work with. Only a few haven't been willing to make additions, links or add bio's. I try really hard to include a bio with as many memorials as possible. Many old obits, I pull out of my scrap books. I feel the obits/bio's gives life to the person that we've lost, as well as gives us names to search for links. Sometimes I make mistakes so please do let me know so I can correct them.

Remember, "No one is truly gone, until they are forgotten".

Per Find A Graves website.

If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. Never deliberately create a duplicate memorial. In regard to duplicates, a memorial with a correct known burial location will always be preferred over an unknown burial location.

You are right. I made a mistake, but you compounded it! Delete yours.

Could you please transfer Glenn's memorial to me. I am related to him through his mother. She was the sister to my Great Grandfather. Thank you in advance for your help. My Find A Grave# 47064599

RE: Stegner #112413776
Afraid you've got me stumped. When I check Find A Grave's Grandview Cemetery records, my entry for Elizabeth Bowman Stegner is the only one that appears, thus it stands.

RE: 5767478 Rasor/Rasar

I have corrected the name on the memorial. This memorial was transferred to me during a bulk transfer. Find A Grave member Dale Morton created the memorial. Her memorials were transferred to me, I have been making the corrections and updates as people suggest.

I do not know the Rasar family. If you would like the memorial transferred to you let me know. I do not have a problem with transferring memorials.. Please let me know and if there are any others I can transfer them as well.

My apologies. I misunderstood naming rules on Find A Grave. I was going by Ransome Jacob Barker being her last husband. Janet

Vance Utley
I see you are maintaining the memorial for Floyd Utley. Are you related to his family? I went to SMHS class of 1967 with his brother Vance who is also buried at SM Cemetery. I'm looking for a photo of Vance and/or a copy of his obituary. I understand that he was killed in an accident when he was ejected from the big rig which he was driving after it jack-knifed. Thank you for all you do for Find a Grave.

Nada Mae Harvey Brackett
I was doing some genealogy and I came across the burial info on Nada.

It shows her being buried in the Peel Cemetery, Dove Creek, Dolores, Colorado.

I searched on and she does not have a memorial. How do I go about contacting someone to see if she is actually buried in Peel Cemetery.

I have no idea how to even start to contact a caretaker for the cemetery.

I do not add published obituaries to memorials due to copyright laws.
