Please understand that I have no control over the names, words and dates engraved on stones, written on death certificates or provided in obituaries. I didn't write them. I'm only providing those previously written words to you.

I have been a contributor on this site for over 14 years, so yes it stands to reason that I have a fair number of memorials that I have entered, added to and lovingly care take even though they may not be a branch of my own family. It's quite possible that if I had not entered the memorial to begin with, you may not have been able to find them.

Individuals using this site need to realize that we are all volunteers and do not need to deal with abusive behavior or rudeness just because we won't make a transfer to someone who has registered two days or two months ago and want every memorial on the site with the surname of Jones. Or a transfer of a memorial of someone who they think just might be a fifth cousin, four times removed of their third ex-husband.

If you are new to this site, PLEASE read the "Frequently Asked Questions" located "HERE". If you take just a moment to familiarize yourself with these guidelines, it will definitely help yours and everyone else's state of mind, blood pressure and headaches.

If you will please use the "Edit" tab located on each memorial, I will be more than happy to correct, edit or add information to a memorial that is meaningful. I will not add all of the information from the past ten census records that have been released or any distasteful or disturbing messages.

Please be kind. We all make mistakes from time to time. If I have made a mistake or created a duplicate memorial later than one you have created, please use the "Edit" tab and send me the correction or let me know of the duplication and it will be taken care of quickly.

I will make transfers using the "Guidelines" if they are not a relative of mine. I will transfer your children, siblings, parents, grandparents or great-grandparents. All other requested transfers will be considered if you use the "Edit" feature and state your relationship or intended need for the memorial.

Lastly and most importantly, there are so many absolutely wonderful people that use Find-A-Grave! I am very appreciative for all of the suggested corrections, additional information and photos that have been provided. Please don't allow the rude, abusive and sometimes rather bizarre behavior of individuals to curb your enthusiasm or your want to help others.

Warm regards,

Beta County Mapper

Hello Joan,
Thank you for establishing this memorial. Robert P. Aydelotte is my father. I would like to manage this memorial, if you agree. I have more personal family information, obituary, photos.... that I'd like to place on his memorial. Of course, I will not delete your memorial or delete your name; I just wish to be responsible for it since he is my father. Very personal, as you can imagine. Thank you.

Hi Joan; you had at one time been interested in Aug and Mary Kuehne of San Antonio. I found the correct cemetery for Aug--he's buried with his wife (duh!), and I've added a photo of him, his military marker, and his house. Best wishes--Stan

RE: James Kier Riley
Thank you for easing my mind on this. I just hate to see stones taken and tossed and uncared for.

Memorial # 79591991

A posting was made today on Facebook about a tombstone belonging to the above individual in Vicksburg, Mississippi. It was found on a farm.

I am attaching the info she gave: "Jennifer Henson Boone May 25 "My dad and mom bought a house on Eagle Lake in Vicksburg, Mississippi a few years ago. We found this tombstone there and would like to get it back to this WWI veteran's family or get it back to its proper place if possible. We don't know how long it has been there but I thought it would only b right to get it back to where it belongs.
So if u would please share or comment if u have any information on him or his family or where it might belong. Thank you to everyone that helps me in this search."

Thought I pass this along. I sent her a message via FB, with the info I found on Find A Grave, but thought I'd pass it along to you.

RE: George W. D. Priest #40756495
You are correct. I misread the Death Certificate as May 1. Thank you for catching my error.
Thank you for your many years of working on Find-A-Grave!

I am not asking to have Marvin Pool removed as her husband, she is most definitely his widow. In order to submit a request to have her parents added the edit page wouldn't accept my request with her husband listed it would come back spouse link already exists. Please do remove her husband.

Joan, it finally dawned on me the dup memorial is because he is buried at this cemetery not in Texas, guess is why the headstone is there.... would you please transfer the burial site to the below cem.? Should straighten out some of the problems, is my fault for not noticing the site difference before. Thanks

Saint Marys Cemetery
Fort Mitchell
Kenton County

RE: Charles Wagner
hmm. it was a Charles Wagner in Texas is all I recall, now. he had a wife and around 5 children, but the only name that sticks is Thekla, which is my Charles Wagner's mother's name.
thank you for checking, Joan.
