I enjoy going to cemeteries near me with low gravestone photo %s or photo requests and photographing as many of the graves as I can. I just recently started doing this and have done a few cemeteries so far. A photo of a loved one's gravestone can mean so much, especially if that person is too far away to go see it themselves. I greatly appreciate all of the headstone photos and memorials that have been uploaded by others for my relatives, so to me, this is my way of giving back :)

If I manage a memorial that is a direct relative of yours and you would like to manage it, please use the 'Edit tab' then 'Suggest other' or message me and I will gladly transfer!

I enjoy learning about my family roots and use Findagrave as a research tool and a way to link my relatives and add them to my virtual cemeteries.

Alexander Holloway - Photo Request
Back in Feb you sent me word that you could not find the grave of Alexander Holloway in New Bethel, Garner NC (#143835233). I would tend to agree with you in that he is really buried in the New Bethel in Orange Co. but I haven't been able to convince the person who created his page. You mentioned that you had done a little more digging. Anything found that I could use to warrant moving him to the other cemetery? Many thanks. Deb Kueter

160496549 Audrey J. Cotton
Hi; would you mind taking another look at the memorial you created on Audrey. You created it April 2016 and attached photo. I tried to enlarge the photo but am able to see the dates even with enlarging it.

My reason is that I created a memorial for an Audrey Judd Cotton based on none being found when I searched. After I added it I did a 2nd search using the "Find All" in same cemetery and found your Audrey J. Cotton but you have a death year of 2014 (why I my search didn't come up with it). Is your 2014 a typo if so could you fix it and let me know and I will delete my memorial. Thanks

Memorial# 148085914-Elizabeth Burgess
Hi, I am the one that started the Marcum - Johnson Cemetery Memorials on Cotton Hill, Wayne Co, WV.
I have never seen this Elizabeth Burgess up there. Everyone up there is a close family relation in my family and I have no idea who this lady is.
I looked at my Delorme Map for WV and there is another Cotton Hill, WV, just above Fayetteville, and close to Rt. 80.
She is probably from and buried there.

Just wanted to let you know that I'm about 99% sure she isn't there.

Thanks, Rhoda

Alexander Holloway - Photo Request
Thank you so much for trying to find his grave in the New Bethel Cemetery in Garner. I tend to agree with you in that he is buried in the other New Bethel in Orange, but the site creator for the Garner cemetery would not agree without photo proof. I will relay your thoughts on to him/her.
Thanks again!

thank you again!
Thank you for taking care of Marshall Ayers' info and for making him a memorial on Find A Grave, too. I'd be happy to help you if you needed someone to take Marshall over, but I think you're just being generous to offer. I've never worked on Find A Grave (yet), but I very much appreciate you folks who have done so much work.

Marshall Ayers
Thank you for your work on FindAGrave. You and I have talked before about the cemetery where Rebecca Dillon Callicoat Ayers is buried. Marshall Ayers is my great great grandfather, and I want to comment on his memorial. He is not buried with his wife and other family members at the private Callicoat Dillon Ayers cemetery. According to family history, Marshall got annoyed with his family and asked the staff at the local poor house to take him there. His son, Samuel "Dyke" Ayers tried to talk him out of it, but failed. Dyke asked the poor house to please keep him informed about Marshall's condition. They did not. When Dyke checked on him, Marshall had died and was buried in an unmarked grave at the poor house.

You are correct that the 1880 census listed him as living with his daughter. It was shortly after the census that he took off and passed away at the poor house.

I saw that I was mentioned in a conversation you had with Karen Mattox Christiansen. I enjoy hearing from you and Karen, and all folks who share trees. Thank you again!
