Bio and Links
Bio Photo One of my main goals for 2017 will be to complete the 700+ entries added via spreadsheet for Rest Haven Cemetery. You are welcome to send edits but I will be completing these as I locate records to fill in the missing information, link families, and correct the dates of death which are currently listed from the cemetery records as dates of burial. Thank you for your patience.

PLEASE do not take my photos (family pictures or grave photos) and use elsewhere, especially Ancestry, without my permission. There's personal family photos I've never even uploaded to Ancestry but have ONLY placed on Find A Grave that have been taken and put on other's Ancestry trees, and they aren't even related to us!! Really??????

Much of my work is from "mowing the rows" in our local cemeteries or in those that are special to me when I get a chance to visit. I try to be very thorough in what I do post to this site. My favorite part of contributing to Find A Grave is walking the cemeteries and taking photos. I also utilize available records for my entries and hope to either photograph later myself or have other contributors photograph these graves, as I have photographed theirs. ACCURATE cemetery documentation is very important, and this is why I do what I do.
I love to research and link families, and add biographical information - please use the Edit tab and send me any information you would like to have added, and I will add based on the rules for bios set in the Find A Grave FAQ's, which includes rewriting obituary information facts so as not to violate copyright (pre-1923 obits excluded).
I transfer only within the four-generation
Find-A-Grave guidelines.
PLEASE carefully check the cemetery in which you want to list a memorial (it doesn't hurt to quickly check the county too) BEFORE you list it, as one may already exist for that person. Duplicate memorials for the same person, ("Dupes"), whether accidental or intentional, are not allowed by F-A-G. Duplicates erode the quality of this site and are problematic for many reasons. I will send you a friendly SAC if I see one.
It is very sad that quite a few contributors continue to misuse this site and post entries as permanent BURIAL UNKNOWN, both recent deaths and those 100 years ago or more.
This is Find A GRAVE, not a memorial site for generations of folks who have passed on and we do not know where they are buried, or for certain what happened to their remains.
I do not add entries for those with unknown dispositions (Burial Unknown) to Find A Grave. I also will not link my managed memorials to those without proper dispositions. Please do not link any BURIAL UNKNOWN entries to the memorials I manage; I will request the links to be removed if I become aware they have been linked.
PLEASE realize this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE, not a place for you to build your family tree :) If you do not know where the person was buried, or the final disposition of the remains, you should not be listing the person on FIND A GRAVE.
The most recent FAQ's regarding the purpose of this site:
What is Find A Grave?
Find a Grave's mission is to find, record
and present final disposition information
from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave should fulfill that mission - registration
of the final disposition.
If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the
main mission,then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

Find a Grave memorials may contain rich content including pictures, biographies and more specific information. Members can
leave remembrances via ‘virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience.

Find A Grave is a resource for anyone in finding the final disposition of family,
friends, and ‘famous' individuals.

Find A Grave is definitely a genealogical RESOURCE, but not a genealogical SITE..... There's a difference :)

Thank you so much for your email. I deleted mine even though mine was first, just a mistake in cemetery location. I read your bio and looked at a lot of memorials you made. Great work! Robin

Once the correct cemetery is identified, a merger, in my opinion, would be more appropriate than a deletion.
Gentle comments are always welcome.

I just want you to be aware that Ancestry bought the Find A Grave website several years ago. Just want you to be aware of this. Cheers A

RE: Jessie and Frank Osborne.

Thank you for doing your wide search. I have contacted the 'other members' and asked they relocate their entries and once that has happened I will ask the incorrect cemetery be deleted.

RE: Jessie and Frank Osborne.
Oh my goodness I just looked in the 1 cemetery

I will delete all the incorrect entries and get others to relocate their entries

THANK YOU for your patience

Jessie and Frank Osborne.

If you look carefully at the photo you will see both names on it, This is probably why you think there are 2 for the same person.

Charles E Pauley 1933-2012
Hi Karyn, I received your link to the duplicate Charles Edward Pauley 1933-2012. I photographed his marker in 2013 in what was the Pauley Cemetery in South Charleston. At that time the only marker was what I posted. Pauley Cemetery is located behind and adjacent but not part of Graceland Cemetery. May well be the same plot. If they are one and the same, Doris Aliff will need to delete her duplicate following Find a Grave Guidelines that she adheres. Thank you so much for your attention to the duplicate entry.

Thanks agin, Nina

Memorials 22286563 & 136086609

There is ONE cemetery, far from any town, at GPS 38.275568, -82.225698.

I contacted the other party about consolidating the two Find A Grave memorials. He has not responded to messages from other Find A Grave contributors so I don't know what will happen.

How are you connected to my mother's paternal grandfather, George Washington Adkins?
