|I have been a genealogist for the great majority of my life, and am amazed by the power and richness of Findagrave. It is an honor to contribute.|
All of my memorials are for blood relatives or their spouses. Some remarkable volunteers created a number of these and have graciously transferred them to my care.
Please visit my virtual cemetery of direct ancestors before requesting a transfer. If you are more closely related to one of my ancestral aunts, uncles or cousins and your request is within Findagrave guidelines, I will be glad to transfer the memorial to you if you will explain your connection.
If you are more closely related to the person in the memorial than I am, but your request is outside Findagrave guidelines (i.e., the person is not your near direct ancestor), I will be glad to consider transferring it to you if you will explain your connection in detail and let me know how you will build out the memorial.
Linking children or getting children linked to your relative, and sponsoring the memorial, are good indicators that you are committed to improving the data.
Also, if you are a direct descendant of anyone for whom I have created or maintain a memorial, I will gladly add a link to your profile from that memorial noting that you are a descendant. Just ask.
I welcome contact about any of my ancestral families, and hope the information I have posted is of help to you. If you want to contact me, please leave a public message or join Findagrave and send a message through the edit function at one of my memorials. I am always glad to meet new cousins, or reconnect with old ones.
We are put on this planet to give of ourselves as we can to the people around us and the strangers we meet. In the interest of accuracy and fostering appreciation of our ancestors, we should try to share information with our kin and the public as much as we possibly can. If our ultimate purpose is not to disseminate what we have learned, then we are just navel-gazing.
Acts of genealogical kindness always come back in kind one way or another. It might not be direct or immediate; but I have found this "pay it forward" principle to be true time and again as a genealogist.
Finally, I believe graves and the memory of our ancestors are sacred things, and foremost the responsibility of family. We are commanded to honor our mothers and fathers. And it is a blessing for ourselves as well when we help others to do this.
Special thanks to the following contributors for their volunteer work and their many kindnesses: Wayne Irons, Scott Balyer, Carol Foss, Judy Ryan, Donna Jones, Leigh Miller, Jessi-Schnittchen, T.V.F.T.H., Albuquerque Firefly, Sharri Bodnar, Steve Grove, Hamilton Square Presbyterian Church (Jean Woodman), Mary Ann Missimer-Moore, Bill McCrea, Rob Minteer and Debbie Davis. I am simply in awe of all of them.
What a wonderful resource Findagrave is.

He has been transferred.
|Judy Ryan||Mounts in Greenwood|
The Mounts are part of my extended family. My computer is down but when fixed, I will add more info. If you have links I will gladly add them. Happy Holidays to you too.

|Bill McCrea||Cherryville Cemetery|
I transferred the memorials to you. There are also other family members buried within the same plot.
Grave 35 Hannah Johnson b.1786, d.1860
36 Elijah Warford b.1813, d.1862
37 Amanda A. Warford b.1817. d.1891
My guess is Elijah and Amanda are Harrie's parents.
I have not confirmed this.
I've been the caretaker here in Cherryville for thirty years and find-a-grave has been an excellent way to connect families doing their ancestry. I am honored to be able to transfer these memorials to a family member. Enjoy them and let me know if you want the others transferred to you as well. Or if you find any info on these others let me know so I can add it to our official records.

His signature looks a little like mine.

transferred this memorial over to you :). Im not related. I just add inscriptions for this cemetery as a labor of love . Groveville is where I grew up.
|Sandra Black Duffy||Johnson Family Cemetery|
Today I located the Johnson Family Cemetery in Princeton NJ (it's horribly overgrown) and photographed all the grave markers that I could. Since you have the majority of names in there, I wanted to let you know. I added a few names that I found which weren't on your list and I would be happy to transfer ownership to you. I also have an article about the cemetery from when it was re-discovered in 1958 if you would like to have it.
|Jane ofarc||Carolyn B. Justesen|
Thanks for the links I have completed them. Send me any info on Carolyn and I will add it to the bio.
