Bio and Links
Bio Photo I recently read on another bio, "our ancestors can't tell us where they are buried, we have to find them." So true. I'm so thankful to all the volunteers that have registered the graves in their areas. My personal goal is to help register graves in my area that will hopefully help others locate the final resting places of their loved ones.

Please remember that while FindAGrave is a great tool to use in genealogy research, the clear mission of FindAGrave is to register the graves. If you are new to FindAGrave, please click on the "Help with FindAGrave" menu selection and read the FAQ before starting.

Yellow daffodils I've placed on a memorial usually signifies a connection to me in some way.

I'm happy to transfer memorials within the FindAGrave guidelines found in the FAQ (and I'm somewhat flexible on that). To request a transfer, click the "Edit" tab on the top right of the memorial and then "Suggest a Correction" tab to send me a note requesting the transfer, indicate HOW you are related, and don't forget to provide your Member ID. I'll consider all requests, but you might want to consider building a Virtual Cemetery (see FAQ).

I'm also more than happy to provide links where the final disposition is known or add additional information. Again, click the "Edit" tab and "suggest a correction" to send this information.

A word about photos I've placed on memorials. I'll gladly give you permission to use my photos if you ask me, indicate that I have granted you permission, and provide a link to their FindAGrave memorial. I have found several of my photos posted in family trees on the web without my permission and without a source to FindAGrave. This is a copyright violation and poor research sourcing. Again, please just do the right thing and ask if you'd like to use anything I have posted on any of the FindAGrave memorials.

To all the volunteers that walk through long forgotten, overgrown, tick and snake infested cemeteries, taking photos of all gravestones (even broken or half buried ones), and create memorials, thank you. Those gravestones may disappear or become completely unreadable in the future. For your efforts in registering the graves, thank you for all you do.

Happy hunting!

RE: James Edgar
Thank you for the photo of the grave. Now I have it to keep for my kids if they should ever want to keep a family history.

James Edgar "Tuffy" Stephenson
When James passed away I was told that he was cremated. Now I see a tombstone, Is that where his ashes were spread or was his body buried? Just curious.
I was once married to him and am the mother of his two sons. So I naturally have an interest.
Thanks for the picture.

Thanks, I didn't know there was a memorial for Rachel before I made mine. I appreciate you letting me know.

Thank you for posting the picture of the headstone for my relative. Also for letting me know that there is another memorial. I will look into it.

Thanks for the transfer! I certainly didn't expect that, but I don't mind, either. And it certainly is very nice of you.

RE: Arthur Boyle
Thank you for the reply. I find in my research this kind of error often. Surviving family may be separated by so many years that memory fails them. When a grandchild, niece or nephew gives the info, it is not always correct. Word of mouth does not establish creditable data. - dennis
