Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've found numerous graves of my ancestors that someone had posted. I probably will never get to visit their graves, so I appreciate that "proxy" visit.
On my memorials, I'll add the parents' names if I can find where they were born, as it certainly can help with tracing them.
I especially like to find veterans (all wars) to honor them and will add a flag, or floral tribute, especially if they don't have one.

I welcome information to a memorial, or a correction. I usually don't edit or be judge and jury over whether to add it. Use the white Edit tab at right top of the memorial. I will transfer a memorial if you are a relative, but I'd expect you to transfer if someone else asks you and they are closer kin.
My Family names I research: Vance/Sinclair, Yarbrough/Ellis/Young, Montgomery/Posey, Barnett/ Reynolds; Yandell/Sparks, Lee/Durham, Ward, Powell/Weaver.

NOTE: I appreciate the person who posted that we need to look at our 'profile' page (top right) "Edits" to find requests for amendments to memorials we need to make for them.
Findagrave has made it easy to add these 'edits' by just "accept", and "process" them (bottom).

I still see people writing on a profile page asking to add links, etc. The upper right, white edit tab, will let you do that and it is an easy, accurate way to add links, titles, names, places, etc to a memorial, and the owner will probably get it done much, much, quicker.

With the "new edit" method, I don't always write a 'thank-you' nor do I expect one. We all have plenty to do to keep up. BUT, be assured that I do APPRECIATE any addition/correction, or PHOTO REQUEST you fulfill for me. Please accept this as my thanks for your efforts.

RE: Orrin Patch, info
I am definitely a Copp. John Scott Copp was the son of John B Copp and I have a John BROWN Copp in my family tree. I'll have to check on him. I come from the family of Moses Copp (1706), his son Joshua Copp (1741), and then Moses Copp (1763) and Anna Mills (1761 - 1845) - the names sound familiar, don't they? They are buried at Bullock Cemetery in Georgeville, Quebec. The names Hubert and Ernest are very common in our family - there are plenty of Hubert Copp's and Ernest Copp's.

I was lucky enough to visit Georgeville during its 200th anniversary and have the book published for the anniversary. I found out so much about the Copps, Browns, and Mills during that visit. Thank you again for your help - I certainly appreciate it. Ruth

RE: Rev. Orrin Patch - add'l info
You're very welcome. I found his birthdate on ancestry - I think I had the date he became a minister (1861) in there as his birthdate. Thank you so much for the biography. Ruth

I got the biography - thank you so much. I'm catching up from eye surgery - I knew someone would be interested in this grave. I just didn't know who.

Hi wvy,

You requested a change of spelling of the surname on my Find A Grave Memorial# 81469572 for Ebenezer Seelye to Seeley the more common spelling of today. I keep the old spelling but am not sure when it changed. I looked at Joyce Tice Cemetery records to see how that transcript was spelled and found it to be Seely.

I will request a headstone picture. I like to have the name the same as the headstone or the Sexton's records when possible.

Let me know what you think.

Rev George Madison Isham
His parents are listed as James and Elizabeth Isham. They are my gggrandparents. According to family members, George Madison Isham is not their son. Can you tell me where you found his parents listed?
