Bio Photo "The country newspaper is truly a family record. It proclaims your marriage, it announces the birth of your children, it gives the obituary notice of a loved one of your family. It not only gives your family record, but the family record of your neighbors. Many do not realize the benefit their home paper is to them."
The Newton County News August 14, 1890

My count is unbalanced because I maintain all the memorials of my close friend and genealogy associate Bill Boggess that died on March 4, 2015. Please visit his pages and for all of his genealogy research, which is quite extensive and leave a flower. He would love that.

I also maintain numerous memorials for several contributors that are no longer on Find a Grave.

All transfers will be done on an individual basis. Please state your relationship/or reason for requesting the transfer and be sure to include your member number.


LINKS, TRANSFERS & INFORMATION LEFT ON THE BOARD are very time consuming to search for those memorials and less accurate.

To insure accuracy. . .
PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB on the upper right side of the memorials, then choose the Suggest a Correction feature for correspondence regarding a listing, transfers or to add information and links.

Hello Nancy. You said you answered my first communication regarding Joshua and Hannah. Was it to my e-mail? I don't remember receiving it. I am aware of the F.G. guidelines but as far as a possible transfer of my ancestors, you never know until you ask. I do not wish to remove Bill's research and I'm not sure how you got that idea. I do currently have much more information on the Bradfords, including their eleven children and who each married etc. Putting their memorials into a virtual cemetery would not be helpful as I can just follow my family tree up to find them. When I am managing a memorial, I do even more research, read books etc. By way of example, I'm pretty sure I'm not done yet, but the Bradford's daughter Hannah Sherwood's memorial came to me as a bare memorial and I added all the info. on it. I apologize for offending you.

James Westerfield

Thanks for contacting me. You sent me an edit indicating that the memorial I had created for James Westerfield (Find A Grave Memorial# 126437410) was a duplicate. According to a cached copy of the other memorial that was created earlier (Find A Grave Memorial# 100423776), it was shown as a "burial unknown" as of March 15, 2015.

I always check the cemetery I am documenting (by photographing in the actual cemeteries), before creating memorials. If I make a mistake and create a duplicate, I will delete mine, but there was not one in that cemetery for James Westerfield when I created mine.

I've notified FindAGrave that the other memorial was moved (even though it was created earlier) and asked for a merge.

You also wrote, "Whenever there is duplicates, it makes it confusing for everyone plus it against Find a Grave policy." I couldn't agree more! It's also against policy for folks to create "burial unknowns" for older burials and then moving them when they discover others have found the correct burial location.

Further, you wrote, "Thanks for your assistance in removing the duplicate
You could add your photo to the original page."

I hope you can understand why I won't be doing this and have instead asked FindAGrave for a merge into the memorial I created since it was created in the correct cemetery to begin with. (-:

Thank you for all you do for FindAGrave, Nancy.

Best Regards,

Bill Boggess
Shock!!! Am I to assume that Bill has died??? I just visited with him end of February at Shell Point in FL!! He is a distant cousin that I wanted to meet and talk genealogy with. Oh my gosh. I just returned home and had intended on sitting down and writing him a lengthy letter letting him know how much I appreciated our visit. Please advise. Thank you, Christine (Wood)

links on memorial pages
Even if the link is just plain text it is not allowed on Findagrave. Links change over time. Please remove any plain text or hyper-links from memorial pages.

Powder Mill(s) Carthage
Just wondering if you might have ever assembled a list of those who have been killed over the years working at the powder plants there? (Hercules, Atlas, etc.) One of my ancestors worked there around the turn of the century; WININGER, James Browder # 90907556. I relate one of his stories on his memorial and I always wondered how many died in that one particular explosion. Thanks.

Thank you so much for getting me back to Findagrave. I am really attached to the Geo. Miller record. The cemetery was hard to get into as it is fenced and locked with cattle (including a bull) roaming. I slid under a gate as did my husband, keeping an eye out for the law as we did so. My husband and I traced the Miller family from Kentucky to Oklahoma, visiting each place they lived, stopping in small towns to visit little museums and speak to elderly people who had recollections of the family. We spent several days out at the site of the 101 ranch, Cowboy Hill, and the various museums that hold the ranch memorabilia. We visited the cemetery and graves in Ponca City where Miller family members are buried. The trip from our home in North Carolia to the sad remnants of the 101 is a treasured memory. If someone has something to add I have no problem with that, but I want to retain my record. It means a lot to me.

From the former, now

I am not still actively transcribing cemeteries and changed my E-mail address a while back to get rid of the nuisance messages. I wasn't thinking about losing my place in the Findagrave records and also at Rootsweb, it didn't occur to me. I also lost all my contacts so it was a big headache.

If you were messaging for a specific reason other than the name change please respond. If you know how to get my cemeteries changed over to my new E-mail I would appreciate it.
