Bio Photo Transfers under the following guideline. I've learned a long time ago you can't please everyone and I'm not going to try. For you who like to break the rules, don't waste your or mine time. If your request is outside my guidelines, I will ignore and delate your request.


Generation 1: your family -- Husband - wife - your children - son-in laws - daughter-in-laws - grandchildren.

Generation 2: your and spouse parents -- Father - Mother - aunts - uncles - 1st cousins - wives and hubands of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Generation 3: Grandparents - their siblings and their children -- huband and wife of siblings and children.

Generation 4: Great Gradparents - their siblings and their children - huband and wife of siblings and children.

NO transfers beyond the great-grandparents and NO transfers of Revolution Soliders or Civil War Soliders or Sailors.

This is a MUST!!! You have to tell me your RELATIONSHIP to the person you want transfered and PROVE if I shoud ask FOR proof. No transfer.

Don't waste my time with: I went school with...I do research for another person would you consider transfering...they were neighbors to my grandparents...I work with this person...they were my neighbors when I was a kid...just this once would consider breaking the rules...ect. ect. ect. If you are not related, forget it. My transfers go to family members who fall within the guide lines.

For you who think there should be no rules and should transfer every request that comes down the pipe, take it up with Find A Grave. They're the ones who set the rules.

CORRECTIONS: For you impatient persons who believe your request should be answered in a 24 hours period of time. Get Real! I may have 30 or 40 other requests before yours comes in. I do answered all corrections but it might take several day or weeks. I don't spent 24-7 at the computer. I know this is hard for you to believe but I do have a life outside the computer. I do have family and friends I spent time with, I have a part time job, yard ward, house keeping, grocery shopping, library research, visiting cemeteries for tombstones to photograph, searching cemeteries for requested tombstones and other chores that has to be do.

MY PERSONAL GOAL: My reason for joining Find A Grave is to presrve graves and their tombstones. That's where the bulk of my time on the computer goes, adding people and their tombstones. Corrections and tranfers are done when I can find extra time in the day. So if it takes me one or two months to answering your requests, so be it. Don't give me any guff, that if I can't keep up with the requests, I should transfer the memorials to someone who can. Get Real!! It won't happen!

RE: Southall Cemetary
I have been doing some research on the people buried in the two Southall Cemeteries. W.B. Southall who is listed on Findagrave is William Brewer Southall. His grandfather, mother and three of his siblings are buried in the cemetery across the road in the cornfield. The gravesites are dated 1850-1891, so it is older, but the two were also used at the same time. The information I have says that the cornfield cemetery was copied on Oct. 24, 1977. My mother visited in 1998 and could not find all of the headstones listed and said those remaining were laying flat on the ground. If you would like a copy of the information I have, I would be glad to send it to you.

Southall Cemetary
Mr. Parker,
My mother and I have been doing some research into the Southall Cemetery in Christian County, Kentucky. My mom visited a Southall Cemetery a number of years ago but the listings of the graves she was given at the library in Hopkinsville didn't match the listings on findagrave and the description was different although the directions were almost the same. By looking at her pictures and using Google earth I have come to the conclusion that there are actually two plots in the same area. One behind the house (that you have listed) and one across Simmons Lane to the west in an overgrown area in the middle of a corn field (that my mother visited). The first is at 3643'26.14" N 8740'02.98" W and the second at 3643'29.37" N 8740'16.70" W. Mom said that all of the headstones in the plot that she visited were laying flat on the ground. Just thought you might be interested. If you would like to have the listing that I have I can send it to you.

ps. the directions on Find-A-Grave say turn left onto Lonnie Walker Highway, but Lonnie Walker Highway only goes to the right when you are traveling south.

RE: Hill
How are you? Fine I you have any old old family pictures or stories, that I may ancestry is a free acct status..I really try to make their profiles nice,and I like to help others research.. I am on facebook, and I wonder if our DNA would match,since we are going in different direction on the branches..Elizabeth Betsey Hill, Sandy Hill's daughter,is my line,she married James Charles Suggs,her sister Jemina married his brother Andrew..I read John Calvin Hill's war story about his brother being shot and dying on their way home..the loyalty,and family love was amazing. It's a shame that many families don't have it today. I also have my dna kit on gedmatch. Have a nice day. Be safe.

I currently entering all my genealogy, photos, documents, ect into because it will always be free to use by family members.

tom waters
I found a newspaper article on Tom with his picture. Would you like me to add his picture to his memorial or do you want me to send it to you along with the article?
Thanks, Barb
