I am glad to share any information about the memorials that I manage. I have personal knowledge about many of them and welcome questions and correspondence.

My intent is to share family history (not just mine) so that it's not forgotten. Often I will ask for a transfer, add information and links and then transfer it back. I love it when bio's and obit's are included and families are linked!

I LOVE my old photos of relatives. I share them freely to help keep their memory alive for future generations. If you use any of my family photos, acknowledging the source isn't necessary, but it would be appreciated and keeps us all in touch.

I love the Find-A-Grave community! Thank you to the folks out there who are responsible managers and take good care of their memorials with pleasure. A big thank you to the folks who accidentally make a duplicate and correct it when brought to their attention.

Here's an email excerpt from fellow graver, Alicia Roundy Houston. I love this! She nailed a trait that so many of us share:

...after a couple of attempts (and subsequent diversions that kept me sidetracked for hours and hours)

Re: Padilla
Oh, and the younger Padilla. Think the other ones were already created but no photo, will check again.

RE: Padilla
Transferred the one I created. The ones I added pictures for, you can send them a msg asking. I always am willing to transfer, likely the ones who created the other ones, where I just got the picture would be too if you asked. Rose is now yours. :)

am going to add
There was a request for Marguerite Downing Padilla. I also got her brother and his wife. Next to her was another Perry Padilla, younger. You seem to know and be a part of the family so perhaps you can link up how he is related? Am happy to transfer them to you, just let me know. Bonnie

Thank you
Mr. Posey is now in your care. I am thankful that you are researching his family. I am not related to the families you mentioned but I have very dear friends in the Davis family. Thanks again for your help. God bless you.

RE: contact
As far as I know, Sophie was married 3 times. Jake Darna, Frank Toledo, and Jose Rodriguez.

You may be able to link to my tree on - Diana Harrison Martinez Family Tree.

You are correct that Aunt Dolly's name was Elfreida.

RE: contact
Hi Jen,

Anna Jean Padilla May was my mother's first cousin through the Gomes side. So I'd be second cousin to your husband. :)

My information about the Padilla cemetery comes from my mother Ruby Coleman Harrison who grew up on Cayo Costa. She lives with me now and is a great resource for family information. The Padilla family graves weren't moved, just the markers.

Mom says there are other cemeteries on the island but most of them are probably unmarked as well.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Jen

Thank you for the information. I added it to Juanita's bio but omitted any living family members names for privacy reasons. Take care - Cindy
