ALL FLOWERS ARE DEEPLY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR VISITING MY LOVED ONES.

If I have offended anyone, please let me know and I will remove the memorial of your loved one. If you aren't a part of Find A Grave, you can still contact me through the edit tab of the memorial. I don't mean to offend anyone. All memorials are created out of respect. The purpose of me adding names is because I believe that people should never be forgotten, and also I like to help people who are searching for their ancestors. I am so thankful for Find A Grave because not only have I found many of my ancestors, I have found many related family members alive.

I will be happy to transfer memorials. You MUST state the relationship with your ID number. All RUDE requests will be ignored!

Duplicates - These are errors, and not created on purpose. I search before I create a memorial and after every time. Please bring any errors or duplicates to my attention so I can correct them. If I have created a memorial and you create a duplicate, do not send me a message that the one I created is a dupe and for me to delete. I will not delete any memorials if you created a dupe. Don't create a dupe memorial just because you're related. If you are family, kindly ask for a transfer or you can add photos and send me information to be added and I'll be glad to add it. Please read the FAQ's for this site on creating memorials.

Feel free to use my photos 📷 as long as you give me credit and do not make any money off them.

PLEASE NOTE IF YOU WOULD LIKE A TRANSFER, YOU CAN LEAVE A MESSAGE ON MY PAGE WITH YOUR RELATIONSHIP AND CONTRIBUTOR # AS I WILL GET TO IT QUICKER.

April Diane Owensby Holton
Hi Dana,
Could you please remove correct the maiden name on April. Her maiden name doesn't have an s in it. It was Owenby. I don't know if you add obituaries or not, but I have included the obituaries here if you want to add them. This is all so heartbreaking for the whole town of Eclectic. Everyone knew them and it is hard to comprehend why this had to happen to such a great couple who loved people as much as the people loved them.

Leach memorial #96745609
Hi. I can't really make out the name on your Leach memorial #96745609, but do you think it says C.L. Leach.? I ask because I think this may be Calvin Luther Leach. The date of death matches up with a death certificate I found.

Thank you so much. As I have been working on my ancestry I come to appreciate the work that others are doing on Findagrave. Yes I am related. My great grandmother was sent by the German Society to work for a rural couple in Saskatchewan, Canada in the mid 1890's and died in 1940. We had very little information about her, but since I began it has grown in to the 1,000's all over the USA. I have met so many wonderful people/family in my journey.

Once again, thank you so much

Dovie C Eason Kerlin is married to Harvey James kerlin Find A Grave Memorial# 163585627. Which is correct but there appears to be two Find A Grave's for Dovie.

Now what is rather odd is her Alabama Death date is March 19, 1960 and the headstone clearly shows March 19, 1980.

I a relative from Canada doing my ancestry that truly appreciates the work done on Find A Grave. So I am going to attach my findings to see if you can determine her actual death year.
