Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family history has long tugged at my heartstrings. It has also been a vehicle for meeting "cousins" and new friends as we assist and exchange data. Inevitably, errors occur so, please inform me of any you may discover on the info I have added (and I'm happy to place additional facts...THANK YOU IN ADVANCE! If I have inadvertently overlooked anyone, please know that I am sincerely appreciative of your input.) to this fantastic site directly from that memorial.

Will consider transfer of family members to "per Find A Grave guidelines "(Please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial transferred to you. Please, DO NOT post requests on my Bio page as it is very time consuming to search for those memorials and less accurate. Also include in your request your unique Contributor ID # which is displayed to the right of your member name on your profile page. Transfers: Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree."Transfer requests should be for direct relatives WITHIN FOUR GENERATIONS, this would be your Siblings, Parents, Grandparents, and Great-grandparents. EXPLAIN your Relationship in the request. Any non-direct relatives (Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, etc.) are Not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. BULK surname requests should not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.). I will ONLY TRANSFER management of memorials to immediate relatives as defined in the Find A Grave rules...this is their policy. Other requests WILL be ignored. AGAIN, PLEASE USE the "EDIT" and "SUGGEST A CORRECTION". Additional data should not be placed in the flower/token area of the memorial page. I also need an email address, or way to contact you when you send me requests and questions. Many Newbies are not making themselves familiar with site guidelines and sadly, some simply do not care. I'm also very capable of adding data so, please do not ask me to transfer and you'll transfer the memorial pg back to me after you've added more data. The guidelines also state to allow 30 days for updates. Patience is necessary as I have a life beyond this site. In the event of the same memorial listed twice on the same day, please refer to the MEMORIAL number. The lowest MEMORIAL # was the one added first, with the highest MEMORIAL # being the duplicate.

If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, INSTEAD OF CREATING A DUPLICATE MEMORIAL use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. NEVER Deliberately create a duplicate memorial.

Virtual cemeteries are the way to "gather" your ancestors together. I respect all contributors of FAG and do expect the same from them. Also, please keep in mind we are contributing this very important data for future generations so they might continue the wonderful work that we are currently peforming. The focus is assisting others and remembering those who passed before us.

I'm honored to add those who have passed into their eternal life as they should never be forgotten. ALL of these wonderful memorials are NOT related to me as I have added others I "met" while doing research at cemeteries, libraries, or seeking data on the Internet. Feel free to visit and leave floral/tokens/messages. Heartfelt thanks also to my fab ancestors!

Here is a list of our (deceased) Fallen Gravers @ Memorial #33083506 & #33083506. If you have a name to add to the list, please email Cemeterywlkr,(#46796033) with a link to the memorial and contributor page.
You may wish to visit and leave a token for them.

I think this is the same person at the cemetery of the above memorial.

Article found in the Abilene Daily Reflector, Abilene, Kansas, 9 November 1888 reads...


Milan, Missouri, November 9 - Late Wednesday night in this city a fatal shooting took place. Mr. Roy Payne, a young man about twenty-four years of age, shot Mr. Hardin Guinn twice. There seems to have been no provocation for the act, and some claim accidnetal shooting, as the circumstances are so destitute of the elements of crime. The physicians attending Mr. Guinn say it is impossible for him to live. Mr. Gunn is a young man of thirty, and both are connected with the most prominent and wealthy families of the town and county,both having lived here for yeas. Mr. Payne was incarcerated in the jail and is prostrated with grief.

Duplicate Memorial
Hello! I have found you created a memorial for Shirley C. Spink Wolcott #174630764
This is a duplicate of memorial #24579767
I submitted changes last month to the original memorial to correct last name, date of death, etc.
Her original memorial is linked to her first husband, hence the name on the memorial.
Please delete your duplicate memorial.
Many thanks for your help in this matter.

Iriss, we talked back in 2016 about her and her husbands gravesite. You were given the information on the site with no marker. I have information that he is also buried there (Frank D. Madden) and may also be unmarked as she was. His memorial # 173330540 you can check out here. I created it. If you ever see that that has changed I would still like a picture posted. Thanks for you past and present efforts in this. Angela in AL

Thanks for your nice work you've done! I've built memorials for my 4ggp, William W. and Allison (Evans) Wigginton. They are the parents of Peter Wigginton #94082832. I descend from their son, Roger. I've sent edit requests to add them to Peter's memorial. I am a Wigginton researcher and am trying to get all the scattered memorials linked as appropriate. Let me know if you have questions.

Kindest regards,
