Bio and Links
Bio Photo I transfer memorials that are not related to me. Please follow the guidelines and state your relationship.

I prefer not to see death certificates on memorials that I manage. Do we really need to know exactly how someone died? The descriptions of injuries can be very graphic. Homicides and suicides...Do we really need to know the details? We are supposed to be honoring the deceased.

My families are Pillow, Jordan, Yates, Cash, Campbell and Mays.

Feel free to use my pictures. That's why I post them here.

I noticed today that you recently entered a memorial for Walter L. Powell. Is there a gravestone for his wife Clarissa, as well?

Thank you kindly.

Thank you Joan for adding the stone picture for Sarah. I was adding more of my grandmother's family to Find A Grave when pushed me into her direction. She married my grandmother's nephew. I also only put up her family info from her death certificate; anyone needing the rest of it(family medical history etc) can get it from Ancestry too. Thanks again, Edna King

RE: Jennie Elizabeth Ashwell
Yes, I wish that Find-a-Grave would make it a requirement for citations to prove the changes requested. When folks are maintaining 40 to 50K of memorials, like you, it makes it easier to verify/validate the changes requested.

You are appreciated. Thanks.

RE: Jennie Elizabeth Ashwell
It happens to all of us. Since I am researching this line, it jumped out at me. I only wanted to correct the links and her maiden name.
Thanks much,

RE: Virginia Hall
I understand but that was why I asked. I see that you have added the ones from Sept. Just as long as I know you add them. I had collected the Times-Virginian papers for about 2004 to 2009 and know I getting rid of them and checking out the obituaries to see if there is a memorial and send it to the contributors in hopes they will add. If no memorial I add them. Thanks again for your hard work on here. Thanks, Henry
