Bio and Links
Bio Photo It doesn't really matter what one puts in the bio section because 99% of the time, no one bothers to read it anyhow!! :D

But for the record,

I am pretty liberal with my transfers,

The majority of my memorials are made with 2nd hand information so please feel free to send me corrections (as long as they make sense that is),

Cite the source and I will add obituaries (but I will edit out living relatives if it is a recent death),

Any and all typos are the mistake of my keyboard...not the user!! :D


I don't mind checking to see if there is more information on said person at the local library (depends on where the funeral took place)...within reason...I have my own family to chase down (living and otherwise!).

Gaffney and Wylie
Well, if you come across anything on John Gaffney (1849-1919) I am most interested in his mystery parents/siblings. He's well documented after his marriage to Eliza in 1875 in Garrard County Kentucky, where all the Gaffneys came from. All 3 of Eliza's sisters married a Gaffney brother (so weird!), but I don't believe John was a brother, probably a cousin, but cannot determine his parents. Nobody on Ancestry appears to be researching the Villa Grove Gaffneys at all, either. But any Gaffney or Wylie you come across is likely to be an ancestor of mine from KY. Multiple families moved here in 1904. Hope that helps!

RE: Declined Links?
That's very nice of you to offer. Only if you happen to already be there. Otherwise, my mom and I were planning on making a day of it in the spring. She used to visit her cousins there when she was little, but has never been back as an adult. We're only an hour or so north.

RE: Declined Links?
I re-submitted Campbell Shiplett's info. I am planning a day trip to Villa Grove/Douglas County in the spring to do some research on my Gaffney and Wylie ancestors, so we'll see what else I can find. John Gaffney's parents are still a mystery, so I'm hoping to dig up something there. Thanks for the edits.

Declined Links?
I'm rather new as a Find A Grave Contributor, so please pardon me if this is a dumb question...but I requested a link from my gg grandmother Eliza (Shiplett) Gaffney (#86029121) to her parents, Campbell Shiplett (#100802390) and Sarah "Sally" Poynter Shiplett (#100802744), as well as her marriage year to my gg grandfather, and the whole thing was declined, with only the notation added that said an unknown burial for Sally Shiplett was against policy. Granted, I don't own any of the memorials, but I couldn't find where it was against policy to have a memorial with an (currently) unknown burial. Regardless, if I re-submit the remaining info, can I get the links added? One of Eliza's sisters already has a link on the parents' pages if it matters. Thanks for your time.

RE: Nelle B Roberts
Thank you for the transfer on Nelle and John Albert Roberts. You also transfered William G Roberts #128999651, but the William I requested was William Albert Roberts #128999518. Could you do him instead?
Thank you.
