I am interested in locating stories, biographical information, photos and family links for all family memorials. Especially with people with common names, if you wish me to link to relatives, please provide what evidence you have; a false link may prevent connection with true relatives.
If you would like to manage one of the sites, please explain your family connection or other interest. Follow the procedure in Findagrave FAQ:
"contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page."
"the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs."
— George Eliot (Middlemarch)

First I want to apologize to you. You sent me some corrections in October, and I just now did them.
Not sure what happen, but the e-mail got buried with others in my to do list.
Sorry it took me so long.

|Ian Macaulay||hello Sir|
I have two items.
1) You have entered and recently updated memorial
116115686 Mccauley. I would love to add it to add it to my family of memorials. As Far as I can tell so far there is no Relationship to my family but this person is in my area of study.
2) I noticed that you may be studying or reseaching wagon trains and or their occupants. I am very interested in the origins, employees of and management of the Smith Wagon works. I am lead to beleive that the famoos depictions of the 20 mule team, wagons were constructed at these works and that the founders were well associated with Macaulays, If you have any information to bolster or dispute these suggestions I would be very interested. My direct email is on Find A Grave if you have an interest.

|Julie C||Wagon Trains|
Dear Mr. Ridgeway,
This is a general question because I notice you have experience researching wagon trains coming to Oregon Territory. Were names of people traveling with wagon trains very well documented? (I'm thinking of the equivalent of ship's rosters from which a lot of genealogical information can be obtained.) Or did most of them set off with no listing of the participants? The reason I'm asking is that my great-great grandmother, when she was only 19 or 20, made it from Ohio to The Dalles, apparently on her own. At least we know that none of her immediate family came out west, nor can we find any of her extended family that seems to have left Ohio. We can't imagine how a young woman that age with probably little or no money could have made this journey. The only thing we can think of is that maybe she hired on with a family as a mother's helper (she had 9 siblings, so plenty of experience). If quite a few of the wagon trains did have lists of members, how does one find those listings? We have a range of about 4-5 years between when she was known to be in Ohio and when she was know to be living in the vicinity of The Dalles, Oregon. It was in the early 1860s. Thank you very much for your help. Julie

|Charlie Clark||Zeffie Perry memorial transfer|
I respectfully request you transfer Zeffie Perry's Find-A-Grave memorial to me. Find A Grave Memorial# 63385351
Zeffie's maiden name was McCash. She was born in 1882 in Ocoee, Tennessee. Her father was Reuben VanZandt McCash, mother Sarah White McCash.
In March 1904 Zeffie married Charles F. Clark. 12 months later they had a child and named him Charles F. Clark, Jr. 48 years later Charles F. Clark III was born, that would be me.
I would be much appreciate it if you would transfer control of her memorial to me. I've sent a couple of emails with this request so please reply to one of those emails for my member number.
|Lorie||RE: Stephen Platt|
Transferring it would be nice, if you have no connection with the Platt's. There was a lot of work done on his background on your part and I don't want to take that away from you, that is also the reason I contacted you as to your relationship to Stephen.
