Thank you to the SAC-senders for making our memorials more accurate and more complete. Teamwork builds better memorials.

Does your Find A Grave profile make threats like, "Do what I say, or your message will be ignored," followed by redundant exclamation points? Lighten up. Bullying went out of style in the last century.

Phony "rules." A few Gravers create faux rules, like "no death certificates on my memorials," despite the fact that the FAQs are perfectly clear: "Death certificates may be added...." Maybe these folks missed the "follow the rules" and "play nicely with others" lessons in kindergarten.

SACs are like gifts. Would you say to your family and friends, "I accept gifts only on Thursdays and only if wrapped in blue paper. All others will be deleted"?

Airing your grievances on your F.A.G. profile is like greeting people with a frown. It's not a good beginning.

Friendly Find A Gravers Shall Prevail.

Azel Shoemaker.
In 1880 in the Highland Ohio Newspapers Azel Shoemaker transfers property to Mary E. Bolin. Do you know why that was? I am trying to figure out f they were related?

I made the corrections to this memorial, but as I did not create it, I am not able to delete it, even though it is a duplicate.

James Collings update
Thank you for sending the edit for this listing. I maintain many listings in Stone Cemetery because the original contributor is now inactive and unfortunately she had many mistakes such as this. It helps when someone catches them and they can now be corrected/updated.
Best regards,

Take a look at what I've added and let me know what you think, also it seems that you are showing a lot of interest in the Kinzer's, are they a relation?
