RE: photos
Thanks! Hopefully I fixed it correctly. I see Cora's memorial links to Henry's (showing relationship), but Henry's doesn't link to Cora's. Is that something you can fix?

Hi Linda,
Thanks for the heads up, I've added a note to the memorial and reported the flower.
As for a stone in Maine...I've got no clue if there is a cenotaph there, or if the stone was moved along with her, so can't be much help there.

I won't say too much here. I'll just say he had 3 head injuries that also messed him up. Thank you for writing me. I appreciate it. God bless!

RE: Edit Message for James (Culpepper) Hager
Hi Linda,

I see what you mean about my father's name not showing up in a search for either Culpepper or Hager, so I deleted the "(Culpepper)" leaving only Hager. I added a notation in the bio stating he was born Culpepper. I did this for my uncle and grandfather, as well.

I appreciate the original intention of Find a Grave as being a place to record burials and gravestone photos, however, I believe it has grown to be so much more. Find a Grave is an invaluable tool for genealogy research and if rules such as not cleaning off a gravestone prior to photographing it and including only what is etched on the stone on the person's memorial page were strictly followed, so much information would be lost.

Basic etiquette rules such as respecting someone else's photo request claim, not creating duplicates, etc are very important in maintaining the quality of this site.

I have added thousands of photos to FG and the feedback I receive from family and descendents is immensely rewarding.

Regards,

Lori Hager

RE: Rachel Jackson's memorial
You went off without all the facts. I notice that you still have not addressed this.

The original Find A Grave memorial was for "Rachel Jackson." I was looking for "Rachel Donelson Jackson." Yeah, she is my distant aunt. But anybody who lives in Tennessee knows her maiden name. When I didn't find one with Donelson in it, I created it. Later I discovered what appeared to be duplicates.

I am the one who edited to original
Rachel NMU Jackson to add her maiden name. Only then did they become "duplicates."

The name "Jerubial" has two spellings. No match came up when I searched for Jerubael.

I searched for Vitruvius Jackson Kennedy, didn't find it, and created it. (no kinship) I never connected it to V. J. Kennedy. I don't consider those to be duplicates.

My personal family was less than 12 profiles. The other 210 were not.

You went off without all the facts. And your 'help' came with a resounding scolding. That is not help.

I don't plan on contributing any edits or photographs.

RE: Clingman Family's photo
You're welcome!
Yes, we did. We have some that didn't have room to post. The plot has Clingman and Humphrey (and Robinson and Edmonson) - if you read the captions on the wide photos I have the headstone placements listed. Tomorrow I'll be listing the plot location, lot # and GPS.
I had to add some names that didn't have a memorial.
I can send you the other photos, if you like.

RE: Edward Clingman
It's funny that you write today. I was just at the office at Westview and asked about him. The older man that works there doubted that he is actually buried there. He said that since thousands of men died in that battle, it is unlikely that it is known exactly where he is buried. He thought maybe over on Fulton Industrial Blvd. And since the cemetery didn't even get started until 20 years after the battle, probably what happened is the family just set up a monument to him. His marker is off to the side set apart from any section, up against the woods. So I don't know if he is actually buried there. Perhaps the History Center knows something. I do know that re-interring someone in those days 20 years after burial would be next to impossible as aside from the skull an perhaps a long bone or metal coffin handles (which he probably did not even have), there would be nothing left to move. Everything would have decayed. That's why I hate to hear about moving graves.

Edit Message for James (Culpepper) Hager
Hi Linda,

I saw your edit message for my father, James Hager (96430814). He was born James Culpepper and even though he, his brother, and their father later took back the Hager family name they should have been born as, I chose to include the surname Culpepper as part of my father's name.

I appreciate the suggestion, as I sometimes send them to others, as well.

Regards,

Lori Hager

Hi....
the other person must have
deleted the page she set up
for George. I tried the
Find A Grave # you gave me, but
couldn't bring anything up.
What cemetery did the other

Thank you

RE: Rachel Jackson's memorial
Before I created the entry for Rachel Donelson Jackson, I searched findagrave for the name and nothing came up. It was only later that a snoot-y person found the duplication. The original entry in findagrave was for Rachel MNU Jackson. I, that's right me, edited that original entry to included her maiden name and then noted the duplication. I had hoped there was a Merge function.

But having been patronized and ostracized by snoot-y people, and offered no help, I was unable to figure out how to preserve the family line. Some mavens of findagrave hide behind No Reply and Not Accepting Messages. I think that lashing out without asking questions is a poor way to achieve any goal.

There is a reason I deleted 200 of the quality pictures I had uploaded in the course of my research (which was NOT done for findagrave).

I have deleted all the edits for duplications I found (over 15 today). I have deleted the edits for spouses that were not connected unless one researched the children first, normally about 10 a day.

You ragged me for having five wrong graveyards? Those are my kinsmen. My 93 year old mother is not as sharp as she used to be. I tried to correct them but was judged and convicted first.

Besides, some of my critics were never talked about at Christmas dinner.

I have met exactly two helpful and considerate people on findagrave. I see no reason to share my own research any further.

We are not friends.

May i ask why your even messaging me about this graves when your not even the person that done them. Like you say the man the started find a grave is the boss so please let him contact me. I didn't add nothing to anyone but the people that there blood flows though my vein. I did my own flesh and blood to honor them.

I know the history of most the family's in that grave yard i have it all in books going back to 1805 when my great great great grandparents came here. My granny's use to tell me about the old days and like my great great granddaddy was blown up at the mill i know about my great great grandma murdered by a black man and they tried to hang him 3 times and he got away with it. How 2 of my Aunt's was the midwives for mossy head back in the day. The old log cabin we grew up in still stands today on W. T. Hulion rd.

RE: Hulion and Corley Family
I have asked and left messages many time do what you need to do. I already had 10 years of work stolen from me so i guess it don't matter anymore it's not that special to me like it was when i done it. I wanted to honor them because they was awesome people and a lot of the info was wrong so i tried to make it right.

Yes i know i made another for my family i had asked for pictures to be added and requested pictures of some of the graves and got no response so i drove a 1000 miles down here got all the information i needed and made the pages and linked them together. I am sorry if i upset anyone but they was my grandparents and i spent my whole life with them and wanted my kids and grandkids to be able to find them and know about them.

Hi Linda,
Looks like it's been resolved!
Had no idea there were 3. Just like you said, it's easy to spot dupes when they end up twice on the sib list.
Glad this is sorted :)
