Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you so very much to any contributor that adds information, corrections, etc to any of the memorials we manage or create.

PLEASE make ALL corrections and transfer requests via the edit tab on the memorial.

Please understand that we will NOT link to a Burial Unknown. We gladly will link when the actual grave site is located.

Per the Find A Grave guidelines 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.

Location of body unknown should only be used for recent deaths where the disposition is not yet known. Final disposition should be determined and updated within 30 days. Using "Non-Cemetery Burial" for those that died during a battle/war is the same as a Burial Unknown unless you have information on the final actual disposition of the body and include that information on the memorial.

Per Find A Grave guidelines memorials should never be made until you know where an individual is buried or what the actual disposition of the body was. Find A Grave isn't a genealogy site for linking all known members of a family together. It's a place where people can come to FIND a GRAVE. So creating memorials that don't accomplish that goal really kind of defeats the purpose of the site.

We are photo volunteers. When we take a photo of a final resting place we do so out of a sense of caring and gratitude to those who have gone before us. When we create a memorial for an individual it is to pay homage to the life of that person. There is no disrespect intended.
We have a difficult time getting to those cemeteries where our loved ones are buried. We find great comfort in at least being able to visit those we love and cherish even if it is virtual on the internet. We hope to be able to provide the same to others.
If any of our memorials offend or simply cause you discomfort or disquiet (everyone grieves and believes differently), please contact us.
~~~~ ~~~~ ~~~~ ~~~~ ~~~~~

We have a fairly liberal transfer policy. We just ask that if you can no longer maintain the memorial that you send it back or transfer to someone who has the time.

We work hard to be as accurate as possible, but we are only human. If you see and error, a duplicate, etc. please send us a friendly note and we will get it taken care of as quickly as possible. Please keep in mind that life can get in the way sometimes and it may take a while to take care of an issue. Feel free to message us again if you think we may have missed it or it was lost.

If you would like originals of any of the photos we have posted here at Find A Grave please email us and let us know. If we have them and can find them we would be happy to share.

RE: Rufus Barbee
John Nash (#46939656) would be a better custodian.

We may have a mixup on two Rufus Barbees that are 3rd cousins to each other.
When I saw the military record on your memorial, I noticed it matched one for William O'Quinn's 3rd great granduncle and the Davis Drive burial matched, but the parents of the two men do not match.

When I checked Fold3, I found a Rufus H. Barbee:
Rufus Haywood Barbee (s/o William Barbee/Eliza Howard Find A Grave Memorial# 39529683 Find A Grave Memorial# 39528553) married Bethany Burgess
25 Nov 1841 - 8 Jan 1921
Private in Company C, 6th Infantry Regiment, North Carolina State Troops 7 Jul 1862–1 Nov 1862; received a disability discharge.

Rufus Barbee (s/o William Barbee/Frances McGhee)
Find A Grave Memorial# 97613484
married Adna Hudson
Birth: 1842
Death: 1925

- Sergeant
Company I (North Carolina Grays/Cedar Fork Rifles), 6th North Carolina State Troops
Relationship - 3rd Great Granduncle
Born - 11/25/1841
Died - 1/8/1921

Service Summary - Enlisted in Wake County at age 19, May 28,1861 for the war. Mustered in as Private. Wounded at Seven Pines, Virginia, May 31,1862.

Asa "Acy" Otto Hullinger
Viola Clester would be a cousin to my husband. I don't have much info on Acy except what I've come across researching thru Ancestry and on-line records, but if you would like to know more about the Clester line I can share what I have. I have been working on Viola's memorial today if you would like to take a look and see what I have updated and / or added to the children info. Nice to meet another cousin!

Fonnie Farmer
I looked and looked for Fonnie's tombstone and could not find it or anyone named Farmer. It was very cold and windy today, so I will go back again sometime and look again. I know someone I can ask, but if you have any idea of where in the cemetery this grave is located, I will go back soon. thanks and sorry!!!

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Robert Wilfrid Alford and his first wife Ramona in Montlawn Memorial Park (Memorial# 98117338).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of North Carolina Obituaries, where their obituaries are(or will be) included. You can see the current collection at (Robert is Member #1180 of AAFA.)

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, R & R [or your name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)
Obituaries Project Manager, Alford American Family Association
