Grace Head Jordan's memorial page...

I am not sure if I am writing to the correct person .... If not , please forgive me & maybe could you direct me to the right person, please?

First of all , I LOVE this site & would like to thank everyone who has made "Find A Grave " !! I am not a volunteer because it is not my cup of tea to go out to cemeteries BUT would love to thank all the volunteers who do love this sort of thing !!

Anyway... Here's what I need to know please : The contributor L. Jordan (number 47280412 ) that has ownership of Grace Head Jordan born Oct. 5, 1907 & death April 7, 1989 buried at Hillsborough Town Cemetery in Orange County, North Carolina , I have found out has passed away. Bruce Tripp , contributor number 48288108 would like like to know if there is a way he can take ownership of Grace Jordan's memorial page. Grace Jordan was his Aunt .
Than you & have a blessed day,

Brinda (in Amelia County, Virginia)

I am a big fan of this website.

I see that you are part of the Find a Grave Team. This may have been suggested before, but if not, I will ask.

How to I make a request to have for the Cemetery description the following:

Oldest year for Date of Birth
Oldest year for Date of Death

Recent year for Date of Birth
Recent year for Date of Death

Having this information would help a lot when researching.

Warm Regards,
Bill B.

And when I said "French House of Representatives" I meant French Parliament, just an American slang way of saying it.
