First of all please tell me you have some ethics. So far I can't find anyone that does. I have tried for a week to get this resolved. I built website for Knott County Kentucky ( My entire readings and photos have been submitted to you by one person that I do know and he uses several aliases. I can't get them removed. I think this is unethical way of doing business. I and my friends have worked for at least 10 years to do all of this work. The person that submitted these is a so called president of the historical society which is not a legitimate society. The society was dissolved the very first year it started because of use misuse of funds. That can be proven by searching the businesses registered on the Attorney General's page. He has harassed and made my life miserable. He said me putting out so much information was causing the society to lose money. I would never take it down so he has done everything possible. I was so busy transcribing that I didn't know he was uploading all the cemetery readings I had. He shares nothing like this without getting payment.
How I seem to have another problem. I try to log into you site and I get a message that I am not a member. Then I get that my password is wrong. I send a request to get it and then I get in. Guess who I am when I get on that page. Duke II and this is the man that does it. This is one of his aliases I sent the message to findagrave but I doubt it will be addressed. If you go to Knott
County Kentucky you will see that I have pretty much done the entire county. I would appreciate it if you would please remove these cemeteries. I realize that you want to keep them since that would probably be one of your most complete counties. But somewhere in this world there has to be one person that is honest and wants to do the right thing. I sent a my cemetery list and he went right down the line and uploading them one by one even those I had just started with only one or two persons in them.
If you look at the comments on these pages you will also see he comments as one person and click on another link and you get his alias and I have to say he is smarter than either of us. He is well known for these kinds of antics. I hate to beg but I would love for you to do the right thing and take these down. One of my friends has already contacted you about this. She and I went to some pretty hard to get and lousy places to do this. Others have done the same thing. They wanted them on line because he would share nothing with anyone unless you pay up first. I worked really hard to do all of this. I got so disgusted I shut my site down. When I asked them to look and see how many files I had they said 135,00. They didn't want me to shut it down because they said I had worked so hard to put all that together it would be a shame not to stay on line. I still own my domain so I can upload it again if I choose to.

A. J. there has to be one of you that is honest and does the right thing. I am hoping it's you. If you need I can give you the aliases he uses. Right off the top of my head here are a few

and even Lone Ranger was kind enough to help.
I can check all the others if you need them.


Can you please tell me why when I try to log in I get a notice saying I am not a member I send a request for my password to make sure. I click on the information on the upper right hand corner and guess what!!!! I get one cemetery that I supposedly manage and my name is DUKE II This is absolutely ridiculous. What in the world is going on there? Things are really screwed up. I want an answer to this one.
