Bio and Links
Bio Photo Most of my work is from "mowing the rows" in our local cemeteries or in those that are special to me when I get a chance to visit. I try to be very thorough in what I do post to this site. My favorite part of contributing to Find A Grave is walking the cemeteries and taking photos. ACCURATE cemetery documentation is very important, and this is why I do what I do.
I love to research and link families, and add biographical information - please use the Edit tab and send me any information you would like to have added, and I will add based on the rules for bios set in the Find A Grave FAQ's.
I transfer only within the four-generation
Find-A-Grave guidelines.
PLEASE carefully check the cemetery in which you want to list a memorial (it doesn't hurt to quickly check the county too) BEFORE you list it, as one may already exist for that person. Duplicate memorials for the same person, ("Dupes"), whether accidental or intentional, are not allowed by F-A-G. Duplicates erode the quality of this site and are problematic for many reasons. I will send you a friendly SAC if I see one.
It is very sad that quite a few contributors continue to misuse this site and post entries as permanent BURIAL UNKNOWN, both recent deaths and those 100 years ago or more.
This is Find A GRAVE, not a memorial site for generations of folks who have passed on and we do not know where they are buried, or for certain what happened to their remains.
I do not add entries for those with unknown dispositions (Burial Unknown) to Find A Grave.
I also will not link my managed memorials to those without proper dispositions. Please do not link any BURIAL UNKNOWN entries to the memorials I manage; I will request the links to be removed if I become aware they have been linked.
PLEASE realize this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE, not a place for you to build your family tree :) If you do not know where the person was buried, or the final disposition of the remains, you should not be listing the person on FIND A GRAVE.
The most recent FAQ's regarding the purpose of this site:
What is Find A Grave?
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record
and present final disposition information
from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave should fulfill that mission - registration
of the final disposition.
If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the
main mission,then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

Find a Grave memorials may contain rich content including pictures, biographies and more specific information. Members can
leave remembrances via ‘virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience.

Find A Grave is a resource for anyone in finding the final disposition of family,
friends, and ‘famous' individuals.

Find A Grave is definitely a genealogical RESOURCE, but not a genealogical SITE..... There's a difference :)

Yes, that is a issue of the duplicate. He is a relative of mine and my sister created her's after him but she died 6 weeks ago and I inherited her memorials, so I have written and asked if they would give me the memorial so I can combine the information. Find A Grave will probably just delete one so better if we work together on this

It appears that the family choice to add the names to the stones after they migrated from Lawrence Co to IL.

I have not physically been to the cemetery but this was taken from a reading of the cemetery about 30 years ago.

RE: Abba
I will do whatever is needed of me, and thanks for the assistance.
There is no sign for the cemetery. The cemetery is beside the church and the sign reads Abba Baptist Church.

The memorial you sent me a dupe notice on was added by a now inactive contributor. I have no idea why he listed her there when she obviously isn't, but I will ask F.A.G. to remove it since I can't delete it. Thanks.

Thank you for letting me know about the duplicate memorial. I've deleted the memorial and sent a request for him to be linked to his parents on the current memorial.

RE: Amy R. Gow, Fayetteville National Cemetery
I know they shouldn't be moving them, Karyn. I'm just trying to honor those that we memorialize here and get the graves registered. No need to notify edit. It's really not about getting credit for me, it's about the integrity of the database. However, since this is happening more and more lately, I need to change my approach. The next time it happens, if a contributor moves their incorrectly placed memorial (or BU) and does not contact me, I'm calling them out. A little cooperation would go a long way to building a better database and happier contributors. (:

Thanks again for your help.

Thank you for your input on the "Cemetery" info for my Uncle. Since I didn't create the page for Camp Douglas Prison Camp and my page shows his Birth information and more I'll be leaving it the way it is.
