I love this site so I can enhance my ancestors memorials. It is a tribute to those who have passed on before us, gives relatives a chance to see their family member's headstones and information gathered on the memorial, and help with family research.|
To request a memorial to be transferred to you, the only way is to go to the "Edit" tab in the upper right of the memorial, go to "Suggest Any Other Correction or Addition" - put in your relationship to the memorial, and your memorial #. It must be done through the "edit" tab only, to insure that the correct memorial is transferred to the correct contributor. I will most likely transfer if a close relative - which must be given in the "edit" tab.
PLEASE to not post birth or marriage certificates or obituaries NOR put in the flower tab any information about the deceased. Send me in the "edit" tab to put this in the "Bio" section. I do not link to parents who are in a burial that are not known.
Thank you for all that have contributed to the memorials which are in my charge. And thanks to the ones that take pictures for me.
I will not transfer if they are apart of my own family or friends. Some of the lines I am researching are Masters, Chamblee, Keith, Kay, Hoffman, Veitch, Harding, Randolph, Isham, Totherow, Whitworth, Cartright, Murray, Magnusson, Bird, Stapley, Bliss, Pomeroy, Cunningham, Roth, Harding, Quinlan, Barrows, Norris, Totten, Jordan, Stumpf and Hannum.
Because of the passing of contributor's Kathy McConnell and ancestorsatrest, I have been given a good portion of their memorials to take care of.
Elaine Berger has transferred the Mt. Pleasant City Cemetery memorials for me to take care of.

|Blaine & Elaine Berger||RE: Lillian Larsen - Ephraim Cemetery Ut|
I am not mobile but still do computer work. I don't think 2 photo's of the same marker is good since it takes up space for other photo's. Nice to hear from you - I wasn't aware of the change of name you are using. Happy holidays.
|Stephen Ray Olsen||RE: Eunice Burns|
Dear Love My Ancestors,
My grandmother's brother, Joseph Harlan Burns, Sr., was the husband of Eunice Josephine McLaugin Burns. I'll contact the youngest daughter of this couple to see if I can get enough information to correct the records.

Your photo of the marker is a duplicate and not as good of quality as the one we have placed there. We would appreciate it very much if you would remove your photo.
|Barb Richmond Martin||Cortrite/Cortright|
I was at Forest Hill cemetery yesterday and added Mary's memorial picture. She was listed at the bottom of CW Cortrite's stone. On the opposite side of this stone, I found Clarinda, wife of Wm Henry, information and at the base of this info was the name Cortright. I added her memorial to the list at Forest Hill. Strange thing is in the Sexton records, everyone is listed by the Courtright surname.
|Barb Richmond Martin||Cornelius Courtright|
While I do not have a memorial dedicated to Cornelius listed on findagrave, the sexton records indicate that Courtright, C. W., Feb 16, 1801 - Sep 5, 1881 was buried in Forest Hill. I also have a page from the History of Bureau County's Biographical Sketches that states that his daughter, Phebe Jane Courtright was married to Andrew T. Weise. According to the sexton records, C. W.'s wife, Mary Sirrine was born Aug 8, 1803 and died Feb 15, 1888. She, too, was buried in Forest Hill. On my next trip to the cemetery, I will look for their stones. Barb
|Ga Native||Masters grave markers|
Thank you for your message and I'm sorry I am getting back to you so late! Last year my sisters and I made a trip up to N.C. to visit the graves of Elizabeth Masters Goslin and children. We took a number of photos of the graveyard and the headstones (which were covered in quite a lot of soil and leaves... and snow!). Unfortunately, after our visit to the archives and several local libraries in the Salisbury area, we have come to the conclusion that these are not our ancestors. The family tree that was begun years ago linking our GGG grandmother, Jane (Goslin) Simmons to the family of Elizabeth Masters Goslin is incorrect and we are working to rectify this issue.
If descendants reading this message would like to have copies of the pictures I took, please email me at email@example.com and I will gladly share (but please do give credit to the photographer!). I am very glad someone is keeping this family in memory. If you have never been to Salisbury for a visit... how worth the trip it is!! Wish I could remember the name of the little Tavern restaurant with it's scrumptious chicken pie!
|Don Blauvelt||RE: John Hannum|
Find a grave's date entry system is based on the modern Gregorian calendar. The correct single year entry for John Hannum's death is 1713.
Genealogically, prior to 1752 England and English North America used the Julian calendar, in which Jan. 1 to Mar. 24 was the last 2+ months of the Julian year, with Mar. 25th the first day of the new year. In 1752 England and English North America adopted the modern Gregorian calendar, in which Jan. 1st is the first day of the new year. Hence, dates between Jan. 1st and Mar. 24th that occurred in the old Julian calendar prior to Jan. 1st 1752 are written historically with a double year date. For John Hannum, he died per record on Feb. 19, 1712 in the Julian calendar, but Feb. 19, 1713 in the modern calendar.
|Allen Whitworth||William Whitworth|
I made a request to have the headstone for this memorial of Whilliam Whitworth 110493231.It appears he had changed his name to William Whitter.I will be looking into finding out why.I had heard there was a Whitworth that did this didn't know it was this one.
|Dave Robison||Double Dates eg 1605/1606|
I happen to read a note you left in another post. In it you mentioned a birth year that you found as 1605/1606. Your comment was that you didn't know which was correct. I would suggest that they may both be right! If the date was between January 1 and March 24 and the event occurred before 1752, you have a double date situation. It's a bit of a lengthy explanation, but it involves the conversion from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar. Great Britain retained the Julian calendar which recognized March 25th as the first day of the new year. Thus, in some parts of the world, March 10 was after the new year (1605 became 1606 for example) but Great Briton and her colonies didn't change the year until March 25. Feel free to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and can direct you to a DropBox folder with dozens of useful genealogy documents.

Walton Administration and Guardian Bonds, Vol. A-B., 1830-1856 page 158 (Image 182/341) is the document where John C. Whitworth is applying for administration of estate of Elijah Hill 4 Sept. 1848. The securities were John R. Moon, Richard Whitworth, and George W. Drummond (likely the son of William Drummond 1764-185? -last census he was 86 yr. and Elizabeth 80, he born in SC and she born in Ireland) and brother of Nancy Drummond who was married 1833 (17 Feb) to Mirandy Clinton Malone...called M.C. or Clint Malone.
