Bio and Links
Bio Photo


Since 2009 I have been working on preserving the Greenwood Cemetery. I started out taking care of a few family members there and then found more and more. I am related somehow to almost 1/2 of the cemetery.

I have been going through the cemetery stone by stone trying to physically place all the graves. I'm also trying to add names to the stones that are unreadable, which is very very hard! Sometimes I find a stone which just says mother or father even

I have been going through obituaries, church records, cemetery books, county birth records, funeral home records, and death records just trying to make sure every one is found and taken care of.

If you are within the FAG guidelines I will GLADLY transfer too.

The Greenwood cemetery is done. There maybe the occasional found ancestor in the obits or death certs, but all the photos (Except for recent burials like 2013 to 1016) have been taken of every stone I could find.

FAG Rules Regarding Submitting Information / Creating Memorials

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?

Please do NOT add photographs from obituary notices (unless you, personally took the photo), as they are protected by copyright law. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices and photographs from memorial records. Similarly, you may NOT scan an obituary and add it as a photograph to a memorial record.

FAG Rules regarding duplicates:

** If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial you should use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. YOU SHOULD NEVER DELIBERATELY CREATE A DUPLICATE MEMORIAL.

FAG guidelines regarding photos:

** Not obtaining permission before using others photos is a violation of copyright law and is against Find A Grave policy.

I found a photo of a relative on Find A Grave, can I use it?

Photos posted to memorials on Find A Grave are copyrighted by the member who submitted the photos. Lifting the photo to use elsewhere would be a violation of copyright. You must obtain written permission from the member to use any photo for your own use. In general if you did not take the photo yourself, you do not hold the copyright to the photo.


"I don't want to submit my information and then see it for sale here or on another site. Will Find A Grave always remain a free site?

Find A Grave has been around for over ten years. Our stated goal has always been to remain a free site for everyone. We have no plans on changing that. Additionally, we claim no copyright or 'ownership' of any photos that are posted to Find A Grave. THEY REMAIN YOUR PROPERTY. If we were to turn evil and start charging people to view YOUR photos against your wishes, you would have every LEGAL RIGHT to demand that we remove them. But we're not planning on turning evil, so it shouldn't be an issue."


Please Do not copy, or post to any website, any of the pictures that I've added to Find-a-Grave Memorials without getting my permission first thank you.

Thank you.

RE: William Boling
Would you give me William Boling's memorial number. For some reason the Find A Grave message didn't provide that. Todd

RE: Sorry but..
If one Find a grave message is flagged as junk by your email ALL Find A Grave messages will be seen as junk that is how it works!

"On my bio I only listed what Find A Grave says about not adding scanned obituary pictures on to a memorial"

No, you title the text as "Find A Grave Rules Regarding Submitting Information / Creating Memorials"
Then you pose the question "Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?"and then provide an answer - but you don't answer the question!

If someone sends me an obituary I can add it to the memorial. <<< THEN PLEASE SAY THAT on your profile under the question you pose "Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?" This whole thing would have been avoided and I would have resent the request!

Again, I'm happy to remove the flower when the obit I sent AGAIN has been added. I have linked all 15 of his children connected his wife and reported the duplicate that was posted. I'm done populating your memorial, can you please do a cut and paste of the obit?

Sorry but..
When people researching family go to the trouble to submit obits, add birth and death dates or link all the family members to a memorial then never see the obit get added or the data sometimes gets stripped out or just disregarded, it gets pretty frustrating. Find A Grave guidelines don't address historical graves so even though someone is my GGGG grand whatever there memorial can be hijacked by someone else who may not even be related doesn't care to add details or link family members and just wants to collect as many headstones as possible. It gets really old....

I'm NOT saying that is reflective of you I am making a generalized statement. There seem to be an abundance of people doing this and it just makes me want to quit Find A Grave. To me a memorial holder should be willing to research the person or should freely pass it on to someone that will not necessarily "within the Find A Grave guidelines"

Your profile includes this entry:

>> Quickly skimming over it NOT jumps out... You don't answer the question. Apparently after waiting for the bio I submitted to be added from last year (I go back and check) I figured it didn't meet your approval or you were to busy to add it. In cases like this rather than waste my research time (again) I add the data to flowers so I don't loose it and people looking up that person can at least see some of it. Sometimes I even get a response from the memorial holder once the data is visible like it did with you. I don't feel my comments are inappropriate BTW, I have linked all the family members for this person which took much longer than entering the one memorial. I should not then have to make multiple submissions to get an edit added. If Find A Grave allowed it I'd just request transfers for every memorial I research it would save me a lot of time. I'll resubmit the obit and once you post it I'll remove my flower. You might try updating your profile to include a better answer for that question right?

RE: Benjamin Browand
Memorial 145655687 (yours) has the correct burial location, but both memorials have unique, important data about this soldier (thank you). I sent the same information to the administrator of the other memorial that I did to you. The few times I've faced this situation (accidental duplicate memorials, each with vital information about the soldier), I've worked with the other administrator and we've consolidated all the data into one memorial to honor the soldier and deleted one. Maybe you could reach out to the other admin and see if he'll work with you to do that.
