Bio and Links
Please do not add death certificate and military record files to memorials I create. I will be glad to add the information in the bio section of the memorial, but no need in "uglying up" the memorial with files from

Please check the cemetery before you make an entry to avoid duplications. I welcome any corrections to information I have entered. Please use the suggest a correction tab on the individual memorial. It's easier for me that way.

Regarding transfers, please remember...just because you are related to someone doesn't mean someone else isn't. Please see F-A-G guidelines regarding transfers. *"The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

Here's what the Find-A-Grave rules state about entering memorials for people still living: Please try to avoid it. In general, we do not encourage adding memorials for individuals who are still living. We do realize, however, that when transcribing a cemetery, it is not always possible to determine if the person is living or not. Please do not add pre-need memorials from (1931-present) to Find A Grave. Memorials for individuals who are alive will be removed when requested (the exception being for 'famous' individuals who already have a burial location in place). You are always welcome to create a 'pre-need' memorial for yourself, if you would like, provided that you have a pre-need headstone already in place in a cemetery.

RE: 147754453 - Calvin Merritt
I just saw it as it came through the edit process. It looks a lot better with more information. This will help everyone to be able to make links and understand the family better. You did great! I find these obits when I search for others, and hate not to check and see what can be added or corrected on them. Keep up the good work! Daphene

Jack Mitchell
Thanks, Mike, for adding the info to Jack Mitchell's memorial to show who his biological father was. I really do appreciate your efforts. I was contacted a few years ago by one of Jack's nieces who saw this on my page and she was shocked to find this out. No one in her family knew it and, now, other that myself and her, no one knows this. The older generation that knew Jack Tosh Mitchell and his dad have all been dead for years.

As a funny side note, this niece sent me a photo of herself when she was young and she could have been a twin to my own father's niece.

Thank you again for helping preserve this bit of
family history.

Jack Mitchell
The memorial for Jack Mitchell (#144222089) needs to be updated to reflect the following information.

Jack Mitchell is really not Jack Mitchell. He was born as Jack Tosh, the son of John Martin "Lar" Tosh and Beatrice Hardiman. He was named after John Martin Tosh's father Andrew Jackson "Jack" Tosh. John married Beatrice Hardiman on 25 Jul 1914 in Lincoln County. Jack was born in 1916 as shown on his FindAGrave memorial. John Martin Tosh and Beatrice divorced shortly after he was born. (Ref. 1920 census where Jack Tosh is living with Beatrice Hardiman's mother and is listed as a grandson, age 4.) Then Beatrice Hardiman married Calvin Mitchell on 4 Apr 1922 in Giles County. Next, on the 1930 census, Jack Mitchell appears for the first time as Jack Tosh. This was also verified by my father who knew both John Martin Tosh and Jack Tosh Mitchell.

I also believe that "Jack's" name was actually Andrew Jackson Tosh as was his grandfather's.

Duplicate Memorial - #s 118570219 and 125551693
Hi Michael,

I wanted to bring this to your attention.

Memorials 118570219 (Record added: October 12, 2013) and 125551693 (Record added: February 23, 2014) are both for Christine Verner - Baites.

She was born about 1913 in Decatur, Morgan, Alabama, USA to Daughter of Joseph Daniel "JD" Verner and Birdie Edna Caine.

She married James Crawley Baites on October 28, 1940 in Madison County, Alabama, USA

She died on April 4, 1963 in Hartselle, Morgan, Alabama, USA

#118570219 has her obituary in the bio and has the correct DOD, but no family links and her last name is spelled Vener instead of Verner.

#125551693 does have her linked to her husband and 1913 as her DOB, but has 1962 as her DOD and no Obit in the bio.

Could you let me know when they have been combined, changed, or one has been deleted so I can update the information in my family tree and update my files on this end.

Thank you so much for your help!!

RE: William Charles
Nancy Caroline Pitcock was my 3rd great-grandmother. My mother's grand parents were James Ellis McElroy and Julia Ann Williams (daughter of William M "Bill" Williams). My mother was born Jerry McElroy (father William Arthur McElroy) She and her sister Jimmie were adopted by Aubrey Holt when their mother remarried (1942) after being widowed. I have not completely researched the Pitcock line yet. Who are you related through? I assume Nancy Pitcock was a great aunt to you. I've always wondered because I noticed that you have done a lot of memorials for my ancestors.
