"We want Find A Grave to remain a place of respect and remembrance, just like a real cemetery." The object of Find A Grave is to document burials, not make it a repository for details more appropriately posted on a genealogical website - or in some cases, better kept in your own private notes. |
On occasion the Declined Message feature does not function. When that occurs, if you do not have a valid e-mail address displayed or if you have messages disabled, you will not receive any additional information regarding a declined suggestion. You may contact me directly for further explanation. My e-mail address is displayed below.
Please do not send suggestions based on unsourced entries found on an Ancestry tree or other genealogical website.
Please don't ask for a town name to be added as a birth location when a birth clearly occurred in a rural location, regardless of what might have been written later, following the misleading practice of naming a nearby town. For example, I have received suggestions to add a town - before the town was even laid out. We pay the greatest respect to early residents by accurately noting where they were born, lived and died. If you want a town name as a geographical point of reference, you can keep that in your own records.
Familiarize yourself with the guidelines outlined in the "Help with Find A Grave", linked at left, particularly those under the Working With Photos heading:
--Can I add a photo that I found on a different website?
--Someone posted my copyrighted photos! How can I get them removed or get them properly credited?
--I found a photo of a relative on Find A Grave, can I use it?
The above questions and answers are in agreement with standards approved by the National Genealogical Society
Unless otherwise stated by the contributor, no tombstone photographs taken after 1989 are in public domain. If you are creating your own family tree on another website, please respect the copyright of the contributor.

THANK YOU! I had William G Sayr's name spelled wrong in my files - I had Sarah Sayr's maiden name spelled wrong! I've been to Tull Cemetery before, but looking for names spelled wrong doesn't count!
Have a wonderful Christmas! Thank You Again.

Thanks for the information on Charles Freeman. I'm going to get on the Internet tonight to write to you. I've started using GPS on my cemetery finds!

Thank you for your note regarding Catharine. I have changed the two memorials to say that she was born in 1842 or 1843.
I agree that consistency in census age reporting is something of a rarity, but I tend to weigh a report of a childhood age more heavily than later reports. A October birth, however, would support a birth year of 1843 and not 1844.
For what it is worth, the Roush genealogy says that Catharine was born October 22, 1842, but it does not say where.

Thank you for the detailed explanation of the reason why you're not able to attach his mother to his record at this time. You sound like you really value transparency & honesty.
Could you please send me your "Information" response in it's entirety to my email? I am only able to read to the part where you mention his mother's date of death as 1855, which is the date I have in my records too, I might add. Mary (Polly) Coffman Hungate is my 4th Great Grand Aunt & I would love to connect all her relatives to her.
Thank you for all your hard work on this site. It really makes a difference to have the correct information on each file and know we can trust it.
Thanks for letting me know about this error so I could make the correction, I also did some linking.
