Bio and Links
Bio Photo Transfers under the following guideline. I've learned a long time ago you can't please everyone and I'm not going to try. For you who like to break the rules, don't waste your or mine time. If your request is outside my guidelines, I will ignore and delate your request.


Generation 1: your family -- Husband - wife - your children - son-in laws - daughter-in-laws - grandchildren.

Generation 2: your and spouse parents -- Father - Mother - aunts - uncles - 1st cousins - wives and hubands of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Generation 3: Grandparents - their siblings and their children -- huband and wife of siblings and children.

Generation 4: Great Gradparents - their siblings and their children - huband and wife of siblings and children.

NO transfers beyond the great-grandparents and NO transfers of Revolution Soliders or Civil War Soliders or Sailors.

This is a MUST!!! You have to tell me your RELATIONSHIP to the person you want transfered and PROVE if I shoud ask FOR proof. No transfer.

Don't waste my time with: I went school with...I do research for another person would you consider transfering...they were neighbors to my grandparents...I work with this person...they were my neighbors when I was a kid...just this once would consider breaking the rules...ect. ect. ect. If you are not related, forget it. My transfers go to family members who fall within the guide lines.

For you who think there should be no rules and should transfer every request that comes down the pipe, take it up with Find A Grave. They're the ones who set the rules.

CORRECTIONS: For you impatient persons who believe your request should be answered in a 24 hours period of time. Get Real! I may have 30 or 40 other requests before yours comes in. I do answered all corrections but it might take several day or weeks. I don't spent 24-7 at the computer. I know this is hard for you to believe but I do have a life outside the computer. I do have family and friends I spent time with, I have a part time job, yard ward, house keeping, grocery shopping, library research, visiting cemeteries for tombstones to photograph, searching cemeteries for requested tombstones and other chores that has to be do.

MY PERSONAL GOAL: My reason for joining Find A Grave is to presrve graves and their tombstones. That's where the bulk of my time on the computer goes, adding people and their tombstones. Corrections and tranfers are done when I can find extra time in the day. So if it takes me one or two months to answering your requests, so be it. Don't give me any guff, that if I can't keep up with the requests, I should transfer the memorials to someone who can. Get Real!! It won't happen!

REQUEST for memorial transfer
Dear Mr Parker,
I would like to request the transfer of 2 memorial that you have in the Benjamin Radford Cemetery, Hopkinsville, KY. Information detail as follows:

1. Isaac Palmer, Find A Grave memorial #34222174.
This person is my wife's (Susanne) 3rd great grandfather. Her 2nd ggf is Louis D Palmer son of Isaac. Her ggf is Elihu Palmer son of Louis D Palmer. Her grandfather is Noel Byron Palmer I son of Elihu Palmer. Her father is Noel Byron Palmer II son of Noel Byron Palmer I.

2. Ann Palmer. Find A Grave Memorial #34222134, Isaac's wife.

This is all the information I feel comfortable leaving on a public message board. If you need additional info, please instruct as to how to submit.

My wife and I have been looking for this Cemetery and the graves of her ancestor for a number of years. We have finally located the cemetery and the graves. The cemetery is located on private property and in very bad condition. It is our future hope to recondition the cemetery and the stones that can be salvaged.
Please reply when convenient.

Good grief -- it is Frank Pierce, not Frank Elliott (who is related). I've got to stop watching the all-night "murder she wrote" reruns!!

Hi Richard: There is a marked difference in clarity of Frank's monument between when I took photo in 2007 and when you did in 2013 -- it looks like it has been refaced, but I didn't know you could do that. Did you use a method to bring out the lettering? Do you recall anything about the stone? Great photo, I will remove mine as soon as you've had a chance to look at it.
