RE: Telfer
No merge. You remove your links and delete your memorial.You had him in the wrong cemetery. I did not make a dupe.

Thank you.

James Lamb
Hi Debbie, my name is Josh Lamb, and I'm trying to find more information on James Lamb. He's as far back as I've been able to trace my direct line. Do you have anymore info, or do you know anything about this Belle Miller he was married to? Trying to find out who Hezekiah Lamb's mother was.

Names on the title of the memorial
Find A Grave has guidelines on making the title of a memorial. There should be no punctuation except what in actually in the name...meaning no "?". "/". "-" or "," between names. If a woman has been married several times, you shouldn't make a list of all her surnames but only use the one on the marker or her death certificate....the rest go in the bio section of the memorial. Not following these guidelines cause duplicated memorial as the first surname on her memorial isn't the last one she had when she died, in her obit, on her marker or DC.

The guidelines:

Memorial Naming Conventions
If a hyphen or an apostrophe is part of the name, use the punctuation.
A period should be used after names where only an initial is known. If the full name is known, use the full name and not the initial.
No other punctuation should be used within any Name Field. (that included "/", "?", "-", or "," between a list of surnames)
Full capitalization (ALL-CAPS) of names should not be used in any Name Field.
Suffixes and Prefixes do not belong in any Name Field.

First Name
First name of the deceased. Put the entire first name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial. Do not include titles or other prefixes in the First Name field.

Middle Name
Middle name of deceased. Put the entire middle name (if known), even if the grave marker is only an initial.

Nickname of deceased, if known; the nickname is automatically placed in quotes.

Maiden Name
Maiden name of a married individual, if known (otherwise leave blank); the maiden name is automatically italicized and should only be used if the individual was married and took the spouse's last name as their new last name. If the deceased was never married, then the last name should be placed in the "Last Name" field, NOT in the "Maiden Name" field.

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

RE: Rufus Thrift marker.
I'm sorry that you miss read what I said."I said I Wonder what would be safe to clean so of the mold off? If bleach would take it off safely?

I am not recommending using anything on a marker that doesn't belong to you. Here is what the guidelines of this website say about cleaning markers.

How do I clean a headstone or grave marker?
Unless you are related to the interred on the headstone in question, DO NOT do anything to the headstone.

Gravestones should never be cleaned with anything but water and a soft brush. Slate gravestones from the Revolutionary era and Pre-revolutionary era are best left alone due to their delicate nature and tendency to erode.

Never apply bleach, ammonia, shaving cream, chalk, flour, baking soda, cornstarch, firm pressure or use anything abrasive. Do not post photos of recently chalked or shaving-creamed headstones.

Consult a professional before any attempt to clean a headstone is made.

Reporting chalking: Existing chalked headstone photos can remain UNLESS there is an already existing non-chalked photo OR until a new non-chalked photo is posted.

Also, if the chalked photos appear on memorials that YOU have created and maintain, then you can ask to have them removed if you object to them, at which time they will be deleted. In such a case, report the photos to Use the same email address to report members who are continually posting chalked headstones photos

Rufus Thrift marker.
I saw one of the photographer's profile page that you suggested cleaning Rufus Thrift's marker with bleach.

Please don't use bleach or anything on a marker as the Find A Grave guidelines state that especially if the marker isn't yours or your family. Also, don't chalk a marker as that may damage it too.
