Bio and Links
I photograph graves for my own genealogy and share photos of other graves. If I don't transfer a Memorial to you it is due to it being in my own line. I will gladly transfer management of any stone I have posted that IS NOT in my own genealogy.

There is no reason to be rude to someone on here. When I joined findagrave linking was not a part of the website. I struggle with adding / linking without proof of the data I am linking, nor do I want the proof as most of the headstones I have posted are not in my tree. I began posting headstones of graves in an effort to assist others in locating a stone or burial they were either unable to locate or visit on their own and of course preservation of the stone before the information is lost. I never intended to have to manage all of them.

Yes -- as soon as I sent the message to you about the memorial #, I had another message from you with the #..... sorry -- I should have looked first.

Anyway, it's all taken care of and "thanks" for sharing.

Charles Raver & Charles Leon Blew
Brenda -

As indicated on their Memorials, Charles Raver "Bark" and Sylvia Ann Luellen-Blew are the parents of Charles "LEON" Blew buried in Pleasant View Cemetery in Darlow. Mary J. Blew is/was not listed as Charles Leon' parent on the Memorial. She is in fact a half-sibling and the deceased infant daughter of Charles and his first wife Mabel Haines (Mary' Memorial has an incorrect birthdate,I have requested a correction).

William Lambert & Melisa Jane Swartzell-Blew are my Great-Grandparents, Edmund Andrew "Swag" and Ethel Jimsena Nelson-Blew are my Grandparents. The Blews are a very close family and dearly love, honor, and respect our ancestors. We have been documenting Birth and Death information for years. However, to be absolutely certain the information I have posted on Find-a-Grave is accurate, I confirmed "Charles' information this week-end at the Blew Family Reunion.

RE: Memorial Transfers - I tried for an entire year to correspond with you concerning the "Blew Memorials" at Pleasant View. I had no idea if you were related, or not, and you state in your BIO that you do not have time for proofing genealogy so, don't ask... with my documented failed attempts to connect with you, I requested that Find-a-Grave transfer the Memorials to me, I have respectfully linked the family together. The transfer happened a couple of years ago.

Hi Brenda:

I've sent through a few SACs for this cemetery before I read your bio....I am hoping you will go ahead and make the links to spouses, children, etc. Also I walked and photographed this cemetery and added quite a few photos to the memorials already there, and added a few memorials that were not established yet. Also, from the obits on the memorials were maiden names and middle names. I hope that will suffice for the proof that you require for updating. Thank you.

Brenda, I am asking permission to use any photos you have taken of headstones of my family and ancestors to use for my own tree and genealogy. Please consider my request and let me know. Thank you ahead ~ Eva

RE: Jessie M. Cecil # 52595336

The memorial was created from a book I purchased from the Franklin Twp. Historical Society.

The only information for Jessie I have on the memorial. It did NOT mention "Lancaster" as being a maiden name.

Sorry I can't be of more help.
