There is illness in my family right now. So give me a week at least to try and catch up. It is still fine to go ahead & ask for transfers & updates through the individual memorial edit button. Just know I do not have much free time just now.

If you are a closer relative than I am & would like a transfer, don't be afraid to ask.
I do NOT strictly adhere to the Find A Grave guidelines regarding transfers.

I want to make this more of a family record, than just a cemetery record. On newer records I've tried to keep it more to a minimum. I believe these are for the closer family to decide.

For the generations that came before us & those that will come after us.

A work this large could not be done without the help of others.

I would especially like to thank Karen K.
The cemeteries around Stumptown in Union Township would not be the same without her.

PLEASE if putting flowers on the memorial of the plain people...PLAIN flowers. They led the simple life for A reason.
A few of the young men were drafted & served in the medical corp during the Civil War..again PLEASE simple flowers
ALSO they do NOT celebrate birthdates or death dates of the dec'd
NOR do they celebrate Halloween
ALSO they do NOT have "pictures" of Jesus or angels in their Bibles or in their homes

I do NOT put a military prefix on the name, unless close family wishes that.

Do keep in mind, that the last name of a married woman etched on a stone, may not be the last name that she had when she died.

If you ask for a middle name to be added to a stone & it is not on the memorial stone or on an obituary that you have sent to me to read...
I am NOT going to change it. That is for closer family to decide. That is what they choose for the memorial & that is how it stays.

The same is true for a memorial name. If the stone says William & you want me to change it to John William Doe. Please read the above paragraph.

There are exceptions to the rule on individual basis.

Also note that I have chosen to not put a period after the K on Linda K, the same is true on the memorials. Unless close family would decide to have the change.

Again there are exceptions on an individual basis.

All mistakes are mine & mine alone.

Jeff Gonyea had on his profile the following:

"We don't "own" the memorials we manage - they are not ours. We may create them, we may update them, we may transfer them to others - we are but stewards. They are Find A Grave memorials of human beings, departed.

They are not "friends" on a social media network website to be collected like baseball trading cards. And there's no prize for the one who dies with the most.

The reward (for me) comes from maintaining the most accurate and dignified memorials I can. What we record becomes history, and a record in someone else's family tree. We have a responsibility to do a good job of it. It's a privilege and honor."

Thank you for taking the time to read this

Timothy O. Stein
Hello. On memorial 84353569, there is text indicating that Timothy O. Stein was an infant son who lived only in 1949. However, the photo I took and just placed on the memorial indicates that he lived 1949-2003? Wondering if you have some different information? Thanks!

Hi Linda - Thanks for the transfers : ) I did transfer Gotfried to a family member of his and I just updated Nicholas' memorial with what I could find. I'll take good care of these until a family member requests a transfer of them : )

There are actually a couple memorials I would like to manage, if possible. They are family members of mine. Milton Hemminger - 65768817 and Emma Hemminger - 65768931. If you could transfer those 2 to me that would be great. My number is 47061806. Thank you!!

George Mock
Hi Linda,

Thanks for taking the time to get back to me. The graves being at that location are verified by the Old Greenfield Historical Society. However, I am not particularly comfortable with the "Eva Amelia" part. The publication refers to her as Eva in all other references, and according to German custom, if her name was indeed Eva Amelia, then she should be called Amelia, not Eva. I see you have her as Maria Eva, which feels a lot more 'right' to me. For now I have simply changed her to "Eva Mock". The publication had six children listed for George, but the last three, according to the dates, were obviously grandchildren, not children - in fact, one was Michael, whom you have as the son of George Jr. So I think the person who put together the publication probably had the correct info, but their eyes strayed on the page to the incorrect George. If you don't feel comfortable linking to Eva I do understand. Since the cemetery is now technically 'lost' I just wanted to get the info on the site here so that descendants could locate them.

Also, I fixed the flower for David Yoder. I was trying for something 'farmy' and didn't even think about the tractor. I have a pretty good collection of farm-type flowers in my scrapbook, so I have changed it.

Thanks!

Hi Linda,

Just curious as to why you did not want to link George to his parents?

Clayton J Walters
Hi Linda, I am helping a cousin research her family tree, and found two memorials for Clayton J Walters, the one (96648989) you set up in 2012 with an unknown burial location and a detailed bio, and a previous memorial with only dates, from his actual burial site in Kelso, WA. This memorial is #37128823.
I suggest for clarity these be combined, and believe the first memorial takes priority? So it would be great if you could contact the keeper of the first memorial and give them the helpful bio info and links. If you are family, I am sure it could be transferred. Either way, it is good to know where his final resting place is.
Thank you,
Kathy Hilliard
