Please be very careful about the numbers, I've had many that if I had used the ones submitted the wrong families would be linked. It is also helpful if you put the name of the person, along with the number, I can do a search if I don't think the number is correct.


I will be more than happy transfer any memorial page as long as:

1. You follow the simple directions below
2. The memorial is not MY OWN family or one that I am researching.
3. ONE request at a time. (Go to each memorial page and make the request from there using the "Edit" tab at top right of the memorial page)

A) Go to the MEMORIAL PAGE you want transferred

B) Click on the "Edit" tab at the top right of the page, then click on the "Suggest a correction or provide additional information" link.

C) In the Message: area type in YOUR MEMBER NUMBER , your reason for transfer AND your relationship to the person you've requested.

Requesting a transfer this way insures that no mistakes are made because it takes me to the exact memorial you want plus it provides me with all the numbers I need to complete the transfer.
(Thanks to Nancy Hough for posting these instructions which I have shamelessly borrowed..)
If you write me about any of my listings, PLEASE tell me the cemetery and the state it is in, ALONG WITH THE NAME OF THE DECEASED. I've worked in at least three states, as well as being involved with many other databases, it becomes difficult to find one particular person!

Some of my information comes from other researchers who have given permission to use here. My thanks to all of you. A very special 'thank you' goes to my daughter, Joy Gabbert McKillip, and my friend Janelle Foster. They have both helped me in the cemeteries and I couldn't have done much without them.

Lunette Gore Partlow
I am searching for Lunettes children and grand children. My grandfather was Bridges Paris, brother to Lunette. My father, Richard Paris and I are searching for family. My dad will be 87 next week and he just wants to know some things. He was told his grandfather was William Henry Paris who died somewhere around 1920.

Thank you

Hi, Joyce, Thought you might like to know that Willie B. (Bryan) Earnest #14362582 in Portales Cemetery can be linked with his father at #17361419. The name is T. W. Earnest, on his memorial and headstone, but his full name is Thomas Walker Earnest. He's buried in Liberty Cemetery in Gould, Harmon County, Oklahoma. Thank you so much, Cathey Cline

Sara A Maynord
Hello Joyce, I have seeking and searching for years now for my ggrandparents who migrated to OK and died there, a cousin emailed me that my gggrandmother is buried in this cemetery. I cannot find her in the people on the list, therefore no grave number. Her name was Sara Adeline Maynord born Oct 10, 1844 and died in 1904. I don't know who I can call there to see if they have her listed, but my cousin says "her stone says",,,,,,,,therefore I cannot understand why her name is not listed in the list of the deceased people. Can you please help me with solve this problem, I would so appreciate it, as I have never known my paternal side of the family, and would love to solve this mystery that has been haunting me for 7 years.

Tinsley and extended families
Thank you so much for all you do thru Find A Grave. Your efforts are GREATLY appreciated. To the ones of us who are no longer able to visit cemeteries, it really means a lot to visit them thru Find A Grave. Until I got to the point I can no longer go, I used to visit the cemeteries seeking
relatives graves. Now at the age of 87 and in guarded health I am unable to get out much. I depend very much on Find A Grave for my visits to cemeteries. Thank you for helping make this possible. I hope you won't mind my using a copy of your photos for my family files on Ancestry and Family Treemaker. Please keep up your good work and thanks to your helpers also. Tell them for me.
