Bio and Links
Bio Photo My added vs. managed memorials difference is quite large because I manage many memorials transferred to me from an inactive member.

Please do NOT post scanned obituaries and news articles as photos to my memorials as they are not allowed per Findagrave rules. I will ask that they be removed if I find them. Send me the typed information (including source) via the edit tab and I will add it in the bio field where the information belongs.

Hello - thank you for contributing the nice photo of John's gravestone. He was a cousin. If you allow, I'd like to use your photo on my Ancestry tree. I always give credit to the photographer for any photo I use. Thanks so much for considering my request, and especially for taking the time to photograph and share your work. Kind Regards, Donna McCready

RE: Hmmmm....Creighton
Hi BjJ, I now have both her obit and funeral notice. Good question, where is she buried. I will check into this issue as she is my 1st cousin. So all of the Oak Ridge burials have been added to Find A Grave? I have been looking for my 3rd great-grandfather John Wood(s) who died before 1880 and was thought to be buried in Oak Ridge. I will send my email address via Charlotte's memorial so we can use email from now on. Thanks for the info and have a great day, Walt

Got the obit you submitted added to her memorial. Thank you. Hope this finds you doing well. Got lots of genealogy stuff done with all this rain we had I couldn't be outdoors that much. Hope this finds you doing well.

Wow! Thank you for all your work. Thank you so much for the information. I was unaware of her first husband and her child. It has filled many holes in the information that I had. The wedding photo I have for her must be with her first husband. My I add Jacob Scherer photo to my private tree on Ancestry (It is shard with others that are not). I always credit the photographer and source of the picture. So if it is shared the credits also share.
Your hard work on my behalf is really appreciated.

Thank you so much for accepting the edits for Sevilla Belle Harrison Spencer. I'm delighted to have her connected to the rest of her family. The headstone photos are great.
Best wishes, Pat

Ephraim Dye Grave
Thanks for looking into the burial site for Ephraim Dye. He was living in Michigan around that time and was married, so it's a mystery as to what he was doing in Springfield. There are some things we will just never know.

RE: Middendorf-Wenneborg
Thank you so much.I appreciate all the hard work involved, that the people on Find a Grave site do, being 85 and not able to drive puts the dampers on
this kind of research.
Thank you again,

Thanks for the tip - however the name has been corrected so since this memorial was entered earlier, I have deleted the memorial that I added. I did add my photo to the above memorial. I think you are right to delete living persons from obituaries.
