|Bio and Links|
I'm a fairly recent enthusiast of cemetery photography. I suspect becoming a site contributor and photo volunteer was inevitable.|
I live in the Cumberland Mountains of Tennessee. My involvement in the Society for Creative Anachronism (the "SCA") means that I travel to other states - notably Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
When possible, I now "fit in" cemetery photography sessions while away from home.
Most of the memorials I have made are for people I am not related to. They've come about from picture-taking adventures and subsequently learning that no memorial existed. When appropriate, I add photographs to existing memorials.
A good number of the memorials I manage but did not make are my family. Some were created before I came along and were kindly transferred to me by other contributors who are not related to them. Others originated from the U.S. Veterans Affairs Office and were transferred to me by Find A Grave Administration.
A couple of memorials I now manage are of non-relatives for whom I suggested rather extensive editing based on information I had gathered ... and the non-relative originator chose to transfer management to me.
If you find that one of your relatives has a memorial made by me, I'll be happy to transfer management - WITHIN the 4-generation direct relationship guidelines as given in the Find A Grave FAQ. --->> Please do specify your exact relationship in the SAC! <<---
FAQ #162 states that the 4-generation direct relationships are as follow: "This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren."
Kindly DO NOT copy my photographs for use on other websites. Yes, I ***REALLY*** DO mean: DON'T post photographs that I have taken to Ancestry.com or to any other site.
Copyright for images posted to Find A Grave remains with the photographer, who in this case reserves the right to not permit further sharing on the Internet.

Tangent- I have politely requested that you stop nit-picking through my memorials.
I am asking you once again- find some other findagraver to pick on, I do not need emails flooding my inbox from someone I can not even reply to directly.
I do not expect to see any more "corrections" from you in the future.
|CoastGuardMedic||can you contact me?|
You still have my e-mail? I tried contacting you through your site but was unsuccessful...wanted to ask if you are still in Macon....and willing to visit a grave....thanks.

Thanks so much for the grave photos of Edwin A. & Ida May Jackson DuBose. I set up the two memorial pages but was not able to get to the cemetery to get the photos. I appreciate your efforts.

I just read your bio, and your comments about not using your photos on Ancestry or elswhere truly concern me. The whole reason a lot of us use findagrave, or contribute to findagrave (photos) is so that those living far away are actually ABLE to find photos of their loved ones or ancestors that have passed before them. Sharing is a huge part of genealogy. Why on earth would you not want others to use your pictures posted on a public website?
I'm confused and concerned about this trend that seems to be starting on findagrave. I mean, we're not all professional photographers, and the people that want to use those pictures aren't using them to make money off of, so.....
Sorry. Just had to put my two cents in on that. It really saddens me that others do not want to share things such as this

Also, when emailing a person from this site, it would be very helpful if you would include a return address to reply to, as when you do not, the person you emailed has to resort to using this method to contact you concerning your emails.

I have a question about this memorial.
The bio mentions his beating but not a death. Do you have other information that states he died later on?
If not, then this is actually a memorial for a living individual that needs to be deleted in accordance with the site rules.
If so, I would suggest editing your memorial so as not to be asked this same question again in the future.
In response to your email, please reference the following article:
1/3 A 28-year-old Duluth man was charged Monday in St. Louis County District Court with killing his infant son and 3-year-old daughter last week.
Ojulu Agwa Omot, an African immigrant who told relatives he had mounting financial problems and had recently attempted suicide, faces two counts of second-degree murder in connection with the stabbing of Muy Agwa, 3, and the beating of 8-month-old Jwoknut Agwa.
Authorities responding to a 911 call from Omot found the children dead or near death Friday in a Duluth apartment where they lived with their father, mother and father's brother.
Omot told police that after planning for about a week to kill the …
Hence, this is not a memorial for a living person.
I prefer not to edit the memorials, as they have enough graphic material as it is, and I'm not a news reporter, I am a normal, everyday, real life ordinary person who tries to help others and considers all children that have passed before us to be angels.
Also, in the future, to save other contributors some time and frustration, perhaps it would be advisable if you google the person's name, such as: "Jwoknut Agwa" (using quotes) and do a bit of research yourself.
Mind you, I'm not complaining about your email, however, I have been going through a very hard time healthwise in our family for the last 2 1/2 months. My husband just got home from bypass surgery and spending 79 days in the hospital.
I have contributed these memorials to FindaGrave out of the goodness of my heart, and it really upsets me when people send me emails via this site, and complain about a memorial.
Please, in the future, since one never knows what another contributors personal situation is, it might be advisable if you not do that anymore.
Thank you, and have a blessed life
