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!

RE: Stiles
You are very welcome. Glad we were able to do that for you.
There are other Stiles that we've photographed across the street from Woodlawn - that being at Royal Palm Cemetery. They are Arnold Stiles and his wife Ramona, and G. Alvin Stiles and his wife Blanch. Don't know if they are related to Mary and Christine though.
If you would like any other photos taken at Woodlawn - we'd be more then happy to do that.

Mary E. Stiles/Woodlawn Memory Gardens
Hello. My husband and myself were doing photo requests at Woodlawn Memory Gardens in St. Petersburg this morning, and took a few extra photos. One of those photos was that of Mary E. Stiles. We have posted those photos on her memorial page. We also took photos of Christine Camille Stiles, whose grave was to the right of Mary's.

RE: Re: A .D. Robinson
Hi Susan,

I think that we have been in contact several times by email, the most recently about my family tree on Ancestry, The Descendants of James Robinson and/or Lois Bates. I saw Susan McCormick last spring.

I would like to keep the links I have to John Francis Robinson, Lois Bates Robinson Chapman and Esther Robinson Driver. I think that I can't add them to your monument for Andrew; you will have to do it.

Would you also add to your description the paragraph I have, listing the names of all of Andrew's children?

I uploaded to your monument the photo I took of Andrew's gravestone when we visited the cemetery several years ago. It is a very pretty, small cemetery. It looks out over the countryside, and there was a herd of cows grazing in the field opposite.

Let me know when you have made these additions, and I will then delete my memorial.

Andrew DeWitt Robinson

Both you and I have monuments for Andrew DeWitt Robinson. He was my 2nd great grandfather. Your monument number for him is 49849305, and mine is 63823130. I think that we should consolidate the information for him into one monument. Do you know how we can do this?

Weauneta Wood
Curious why you created this memorial for Weauneta Thomas Wood? Weauneta is my grandmother, I just recent set a new stone for her and my mother - - I am Mike Hill - wonder if maybe by chance we are related?

Dyke G. Hill
Carina Schuler, a German lady on FaceBook, has found Dyke G. Hill's military ID tag in Germany. I can get the data again and find a way to put you two together if you have any trouble locating her.
Best wishes,
