Enjoy recording history,if you don't want a memorial that is on here please ask me to delete it.

How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Only request transferring of management if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Third, If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.

Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests must not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.

Fifth, The "Suggest a correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above definition. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor will make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.

Sixth, Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.

NOTE: If you are unable to edit a memorial after it has been transferred to your account, try logging out of Find A Grave then logging back in. [Top]

RE: transfer
HI DJ, sorry I didn't give the relationship. Her Grandfather and my gg grandfather were brothers. Thanks so much for the transfer; I didn't know she existed until today when I was researching the Bird Family of Newton/Walton Counties. THanks for all you do on Find A Grave and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

RE: photo
Dj, I have posted several photos recently. Which one is the one you thanked me for. I appreciate the Thank You. I love Find a grave and enjoy taking photos. I was at Big Sandy Cemetery in Buncombe Co. NC in Sept. and again last Sunday. I plan another trip in spring, if there are specific families you would like me to look for, let me know.

RE: Eastview Cemetery, Rockdale County, Georgia
Yes, I would be happy to take Bobby's page also. He died many years before I was born but my father always spoke very fondly of his younger brother.

I would be interested in any of the others in that same plot or in the plot to the right:

Ida J. Hammock - Memorial# 59137594
John Bell Hammock - # 76964344
Bessie B. Hammock - Memorial# 76964414

John Fletcher Parnell - Memorial# 76892333

Thank you.

You're welcome! It is beautiful weather in Pulaski today. Mid 60s, feels like spring. So it was a perfect day to hike around Oakwood!

You have a wonderful Thanksgiving too.

RE: send me info
This is all I have.
His full name was Henry H. Hinson (Hank)
His dad's name is the same.
Henry retired as the ranking Sgt. Major in the Army in 1968. He lived in Decatur Ga. after retiring. Then he and his first wife, Lois Hilley Hinson, moved to Peachtree City in the 1980's. Lois passed away, is buried where Ed says Henry is, but is not. He remarried, when he died, he wishes were to be buried with his parents in Chattanooga. I would say the time of his death is correct. As far as the location in Chattanooga, I remember crossing the Veteran's Bridge headed north across the river, then heading back toward 153 on the main road that takes you into Hixson. I have looked on Goggle Earth several times, cannot locate the place using it. Sorry I cannot be of anymore help. If and when I get back to the area, for my own peace of mind am going to go find it again. Right now I am nowhere near Tennessee, wish I were.
