Bio and Links
I enjoy Find A Grave, a place where I may pay a virtual visit to the graves of my loved ones, and friends, many graves I have never seen. I am pleased to be a contributor so I can create memorials for my family as well as for other families. I am always happy to make changes to existing memorials. The reason I have so many more memorials managed than has been added is a cemetery has been transferred to my care. If you are related to any person whose memorial I manage and wish a transfer, in most cases it will be honored, if not my family. Please use the correct edit for suggested changes.

PLEASE NOTE: Grave markers that I have posted have been added through the courtesy of others. Before copying for any reason, please obtain permission from those who so kindly let me post them. Thanks.

NOTE: FLOWERS AND TOKENS ARE TO SHOW LOVING RESPECT FOR THE DECEASED. DO NOT USE THIS AREA TO POST ANY GENEALOGICAL DATA WHATSOEVER. THERE ARE EDITS ON EACH MEMORIAL FOR THIS PURPOSE. BE REVERENT.

I try my best not to knowingly create a duplicate memorial, but once in a while it does happen. If I have made a duplicate, please use the edit to let me know for removal.

TRANSFER REQUESTS NOT MADE THROUGH THE PROPER EDIT WITH YOUR ID NUMBER WILL BE IGNORED.

Prefer not to make transfers to contributors who will not transfer or who strictly uphold the relative guidelines. Who better to love and care for a memorial than a family member?

Also, I will not transfer to those who create memorials with only a name (little or no other data at all, no married name for females, and burial unknown), just to be "1st" or just to "add numbers." This is not fair to those who spend hours and hours of precious time doing research in order to create a meaningful memorial. In addition, I will not transfer to anyone who knowingly creates duplicates.

When I add an obituary it is typed as is. If a word or name is misspelled it will be typed as such. If I add a word or two of clarification it will appear in brackets. Otherwise, any additional information will be noted separate from the obituary, as should be

PLEASE-You are welcome to use a part of or all of a bio I place on a memorial. If you do tho, PLEASE give me credit with reference to Find A Grave. THANK YOU.

I HAVE NOTICED ON SEVERAL WEBSITES WHERE FAMILY TREES ARE CREATED USING INFORMATION FROM MY BIOS IN FIND A GRAVE OR REFERENCING THE MEMORIAL ADDRESS, WITHOUT ANY NOTE ACKNOWLEDGING CREDIT. Please PLEASE, CREDIT YOUR SOURCE! I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO REMOVE THESE BIOS, BUT WILL IF THIS CONTINUES. Be fair to all and do the right thing. AFTER ALL, COPYING FROM OTHERS WITHOUT CREDIT IS SAME AS STEALING.

CREDIT ALL SOURCES IN YOUR FAMILY TREES AND INDIVIDUAL PAGES---THIS IS ONLY PROPER---THANK YOU. (lt)

Thanks.

RE: John and Mary Vojie
You are very welcome. I love taking the photos and helping people in their searches. If ever there is anyway I can help you please don't hesitate to ask. This is such a fun thing to do and I learn so much from doing it also.

RE: Adam Miller
Thank you for this info. I will delete the memorial, because you are right. It is possible he would have been buried in Daviess County. I appreciate your time. I certainly don't want to record him there if there is reason not to be somewhat certain.

Adam Miller, Pleasant Ridge Cem., Harrison Co., MO
Hello,
I traveled to this cemetery this past week--something I've wanted to do for 15 years. I am related to the Miller, Gillespie, and Ballard families here. I was surprised not to find a grave for Adam Miller (although I know that is common), but finding the stone without a top among other family members made we wonder if it was his. So, I created a memorial for him, noting that. It is #162188369. You can now connect him with his daughter, Elizabeth Miller Miller, wife of Jacob Miller. Thank you.

RE: J. B. Throckmorton
it was a march email and had member ID and request for transfer. email came from 'no reply..findagrave' which is how requests from edit button come in. very strange.

RE: J. B. Throckmorton
it is no problem. I think you can go thru findagrave administrators and request the deleted memorial be reinstated, and delete the second one. maybe it is the first by date, but it didn't have anything on it. I reloaded my PC and was unsuccessful merging email with new PC email since I didn't name them the same. just got it figured out this weekend and was going thru the old email requests to see if any had not been completed and ran across a transfer request from you. I just received an email from someone that two memorials had been merged and I should change the photo order. not sure, but some maintenance on duplicate memorials may be underway. however, a deleted db record is not purged and should be recoverable. I do understand when someone has done updated links and bio info on one memorial and a 2nd one is found. earlier or not, I'd prefer my initial memorial that has no info be deleted. apparently that isn't the way the process works. I think I know the name of the bourbon county contact who is searching out duplicates and will contact them about the memorial to see if yours is retrievable.

RE: J. B. Throckmorton
am confused? found an email requesting transfer so I did it. I did not delete any memorial and cannot delete another's memorial. perhaps findagrave administrators did so, not me.
