Bio and Links
Bio Photo I think this "Find-a-Grave" website is wonderful, and I hope more people will add data to it. Hopefully my input will help someone out there.

I so enjoy finding & visiting the old pioneer cemeteries, where the dates go back to the 1700-1800's.

I'll be more than happy to make corrections and/or add data, make relationship links, etc, but I am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to a growing misunderstanding of what Find-a-grave is all about.

Please DO NOT not leave me a message of "any kind" without leaving a way for me to get back to you. It makes no sense to do so - it is useless and it will be ignored.

DO NOT ask for transfers without return contact information either.

God Bless!

RE: Great Job
I don't think you did, I was just hoping you had some general knowledge. I work the Pennell side of the family having over 3000 pages. Just started the Morris side in January and already have over 250 pages. Looking for anything I can find dealing with the Morris Clan of Wetzel County.

Great Job
Ruth, I have question, I am the Grandson of DELLSLOW ALBERT MORRIS (1900-1957)of Wetzel & MADELINE GEAR (1910-1979)of Randolph, and all my notes say they all lived in same place, but with conflicts in info I get confused, Are there different factions of Morris Families or all the same? The Gear family is of Scotish Decent, y idea where the Morris family came from?

Thank you in advance

RE: Amanda Strong Baker
Thank you so very much. You gave me the transfer a lot faster than I expected, and knowing that I was not within the Find a Grave guidelines. Appreciate all that you do for people to help find their loved ones.

I can't begin to thank you enough. I feel sooo honored to be able to Manage Amanda's Memorial. You answered nearly as soon as I requested the transfer. Some people I have to wait a couple of months. I have My mother that I have asked to manage since early Dec of last year. I also noticed you have a lot to manage and to get back with me this soon?? F A G needs people like you. Again many thanks.

Thank you so much for creating these memorials & updating so fast. I am working on uncovering the family of my Aunt S. Virginia Queen. Your memorials have provided me with a giant leap in my research. I now know the state where she came from.

Thank you so much for your work in McNutt Cem. There are some areas there (though it is well-kept) where it's hard to get under trees, etc. so it's unlikely I could ever thoroughly photo all of it. Very helpful to have entries from the list to work toward. Happy graving! Again thanks, Sandi

You're welcome. You have done a great job with their bios. I didn't have that much information about them. Norma
