Being a Find A Grave photo contributor is the most rewarding & constructive hobby I've ever taken up.. You have my consent to use any of the headstone or plot photos that I've loaded to memorials.. If I've created a memorial for a family member or friend of yours, I'm more than willing to transfer them to you.. I'm not looking to own high numbers of memorials, my intentions as a contributor are.. first.. to help document the cemeteries.. and secondly.. to help family members find their ancestors more easily.. So even if you don't necessarily fit the Find A Grave 'guidelines' for requesting a transfer, don't let that deter you from asking.. My feelings are that if you've taken the time to contact me with a correction or addition to a memorial, then you qualify...|
I also want to give special mention to my Find A Grave friend, Kris Daugherty/OSU1988. Kris has been a tremendous help to me by providing me with cemetery records for Williams County. These records have enabled me to add my photos to memorials with confidence. As many of you know, sometimes we encounter stones that have been so worn down by time and weather that they are unreadable. Her records allow me the ability to cross check the photos with placement of the graves and to identify those unreadable stones. THANK YOU KRIS!!!
Also, I came across this poem on another contributor's profile and it perfectly conveys my thoughts and feelings as I walk the cemeteries.. so with his permission I've borrowed it from his page and here it is..
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

I was just wondering if maybe dates are messed up. The birth date of mother is 1795 and daughter Catherine as 1805. That would make mother 10yrs. trying to follow this line and want to make sure I find the correct people before adding them to my tree. thanks for your time.

Mr Roundtee was listed in Jenkins. Did Carol have him changed?
|Memory Keeper||RE: I sponsored your cousin|
Yes, I see Bud and he attends faithfully at church where we attend. I will tell him Sandi!
|Memory Keeper||I sponsored your cousin|
Cousins can be as close as close can be! I am so happy to transfer Carol's memorial to you. I loved Carol. She is/was my sister in Christ. An amazing lady! I "sponsored" her memorial so you can put as many photos of her as you want. And NO AD's on the page.
Happy Family Historian Work to you,
Deborah (aka Memory Keeper)

You are most welcome. Thanks for linking her parents to her.
Sandi, thanks so much. I've updated Jacob's memorial, as you suggested.
