I am not using obituaries taken from funeral homes etc. I am trying to abide by FAG rules. I have been going back and deleting obituaries I have copied. Sure there r many I haven't got to but deleting as I find them unless the family wants it there. If u want to rewrite the obituary leaving out living relatives I will be glad to add and site you as the source. I am continually working on my memorials adding new information. Unlike some I do feel like find a grave is a good source for genealogical information but primary objective is to honor our deceased. Noticed on some member profiles they don't agree with this and then go on to tell the names they are researching and send me edits to connect family lol. So this is conflicting to me. I have noticed pictures posted to some of my memorials by people who don't want to share their photos. If this is the case I would prefer you not post on my memorials. Any pics or information I have added to this site is free for others to use. The way I feel about it is if you don't want others using the info you put on FAG, then don't put it on here. Like my mom use to tell me,'" If your not willing to share than don't get it out". I am not here for the numbers so if I have your relative will transfer. I don't have time to check all these edits, so if you send me an edit as to parental information I will use your name as the source of the information. Researching the Wrights, Graves, Shelton, Davis, Green, Wilson, Barkers, Gerens, Thompson, Farmers, Hoopers and Cartwrights. If I enter incorrect information please let me know. I am also researching the Still family buried at Red Hill, Elijah and Letha Ann are my 4th great grandparents. I am not willing to transfer the Still Memorials at Red Hill unless they are your grandparents etc.
Some of my favorite Epitaphs: 1. When the mists shall rise above us, as our father knows his own,Face to face with those that love us, We shall know as we are known. Lo behold the orient meadows. Floats the golden fringe of day, Heart to heart,we bide the shadows Till the mists have cleared away. Memorial# 69852171 2. We had a little treasure once. He was our joy and pride. We loved him ah perhaps too well. For soon he slept and died. All is dark within our dwelling. Lonely are our hearts today. For the one we loved so dearly has forever passed away. Memorial # 70274957 3. From obscurity he ascended to honor and great usefulness. His feet were firmly planted on Christ and the great doctrines of salvation.
