Orren Lee Shelby in IOOF Cemetery
My first "Find a Grave" adventure. I didn't find a stone for Orren Shelby but did find a number of other Shelby's. There are no memorials yet and I'm not sure if I should start them or send the photos straight to you. Please advise.

Rutherford in Escambia County, FL
I am looking for more information on your memorial #89629510 for G.W. Rutherford. Many of my Rutherford ancestors lived and died in Escambia County, FL and I was wondering if you had anymore information on the people that were buried next to this person? He looks to be in the same age grouping as my grandpa, so maybe a cousin? Also has the same name... well initials anyhow, of my gr gr grandfather.

RE: edwin otto davis & marg
Yes, a cousin just confirmed that it is correct. Two other cousins had said "no". But I have now confirmed it. Thanks so much.

Shirley, the memorial you posted for Edwin Otto Davis is not the correct one. Could you remove it, please? I cannot delete it.

Could I ask you a favor when you build a new memorial? Could you leave the maiden name blank if you do not know it? There are those of us who search for truly unknowns to leave flowers at their page. It is confusing when all the memorials who do have names appear. Thanks so much. And thanks for the hard work.

RE: Annie Mae Lee
Next time you send info on someone use their page. Hit EDIT, then click on Suggest a correction or provide additional info. Type in the info and it will go to the person who owns that page. When they get the info, it will open on that person's page. This keeps the owner from having to look up that person. I own pages on about 30 cemeteries, so it take time to figure out which one.
Thanks for the info.

Double Thanks!
Wow! You also posted my Uncle Aaron Johnson's headstone. You are awesome!

George W. Shelby
I just now added the gravestone photo for this memorial. I just want you to know that the name and dates are discolored and almost faded away. I did enlarge it and zoom in as much as I could, to examine it. It really does say George W. Shelby with the dates on each side of 1859 and 1928. I'm sorry this is the best I could do. Maybe some family member will see this and try to get the info reprinted on the stone. The stone, itself, still seems to be in fairly good shape.

RE: L. D. Adams Jr
The memorial reads Michael Ray Adams?
The other reads L.D. Adams.
Do you have wrong memorial?

RE: obituaries
Still, we don't accept scanned copies of obituaries. We only want photos of the deceased and of their memorial marker in the photo area. Thanks,

find a grave rules
This is the find a grave rules for more than one memorial:

Why are there multiple memorials for the same individual? How does Find A Grave handle duplicate memorials?
Because so many people add data to Find A Grave, there are often duplicate cemeteries and duplicate memorials added. This is a very common situation and is quite difficult to resolve in a way that keeps everyone happy. Before adding a memorial, you should search the cemetery to see if a record with that name has already been added. If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should 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. You should never deliberately create a duplicate memorial.

Lois Robertson Marlar
I can understand if she were a close kin to you and if any of my Marlars are close kin to you I would be glad to transfer them to you, what I don't understand is why you would add one when there was already one on the site and only added Lois who only married a Marlar and didn't add her husband who is a Marlar. Have a great day!

Lois Robertson Marlar
Please delete your memorial for Lois Robertson Marlar in Pleasant Grove Cemetery. This is my husband's aunt and I had already put one on with her obit on the day she died. Thank you
