Earle Bishop
Hi Barbara,

When I 'googled' Earle Bishop, I saw your flowers on his memorial. Mr. Bishop married my 1st cousin 2x removed, Edna May Smart.

Edna's parents were Joseph & Ellen (O'Reilly) Smart. Joseph's sister was my great-grandmother, Edith Emily Smart. Their parents were Joseph & Emily (Ford) Smart.

I wonder if you have any information on the Smart family? And if so, could we collaborate on "Smart" information? If you don't, would you be able to steer me in the right direction? This side of my mother's family is a mystery to me and have been finding it difficult to find anyone who still has information on the family.

Thanks for your time ... Claudia

Moses A. Wells
Hi Barbara,
I'm a direct descendant of Moses and Lucy Cross Wells through their third child, Oscar. I also have visited Pidgeon Hill and have pictures of family graves there.
I am still trying to find Moses' origins. Anyone have any ideas?

Poole Lineage
I am researching my girlfriend's lineage (nee Crooker) and it runs into the Poole line.

Jonathan Poole (1667 - 1723) is her 7th Great Grand Uncle.

I am copying some of the grave photos and information into my Family Tree File. With over 1600 entries so far it is a large task.

My own tree is over 5,000 but includes many from my mother's first marriage to a Tuttle of New Haven, CT and that runs very deep.

Keep photographing.

Thank you for adding the relationship. This makes it so much easier to go from one member of the family to another.

Transfer Requests
When the original contributor is deceased, email with your request.

1. A link to the memorial for which you wish a transfer. A number isn't enough. They need to link to be able to handle it without searching.

2. A link to your profile page on Find A Grave.

3. A link to the original contributor's profile page. Indicate that he/she is deceased.

4. Indicate your relationship to the person for whom the memorial was made.

Make the subject something like:

Transfer Request - Deceased Contributor

If you don't get it answered within 30 days, ask again (as long as the person is within 4 generations; if not I'd consider it a no).

Make sure you have added what you can to the memorial - a photo of the person; a photo of the stone; a flower in memory of the person.

Hope that helps.

Goodsell transfer
Dear "Cousin Barbara",
I would be happy to link any children that you have showing your connection to John or Epaphras but they are my 6th and 7th grandfathers as well so I decline your request for transfer.
I would love to share info with you though.
Do you know for sure where Mary Lewis Goodsell rests?
Your "Cousin Chris"

Hi, Barbara,

Mr. Poole is all yours. I wish I had noticed your flower, but I haven't visited his memorial in a while.
