I authorize anyone to use my Find a Grave images in Wikipedia or their own family research, under the creative commons attribution license cc-by-2.5, where the attribution is 'R.E.H.'."

Going forward, unless there is a compelling reason, I will only transfer listings of people someone knew closely, i.e. parent, child or close friend. I'm sorry, but someone who died 200 years ago could be related to thousands of people. I prefer you add one of my listings under your umbrella using the virtual cemetery feature at Find A Grave. If you have additional information, I will happily add it and list you as the contributor.

Also, please do not ask me add an obituary to a person's memorial. see Find A Grave policy below:

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
It is best to not copy obituary notices from newspapers to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so. In general, obituaries in newspapers are submitted by the family. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed. Find A Grave reserves the right to remove obituary notices from memorial records.
Obituaries for "famous" individuals are usually written by newspaper staff and can not be posted to Find A Grave.
Please do not include website addresses that may be listed in the obituary as they usually expire within a year after the obituary is printed.

Nov 6 seminar
Hi,

My husband, Bob, and I recently gave a presentation at the Hunterdon County Library about the cemeteries of the county for the Tricentennial. Included in this event is a county-wide “scavenger hunt” where participants will return on Nov 6 and collect prizes for their participation at the Main Branch Library. We wanted to make that return lecture an informal meet and greet where anyone interested in getting involved, whether it be in cemetery restoration, work at the Historical Society with cemetery records, working in support of specific cemeteries, or with findagrave. Whatever it may be, and offering a way for like minded cemetery folks to network, share resources, advice, and the like. I am extending an invitation, hoping you are available and would like to come out and share you own expertise with the group. It’s, November 6, 7-9 PM at the Hunterdon County Main Branch Library. If you can make it let me know, thanks.

James J Floyd - findagrave
Hi,

Any way of finding out if this James J Floyd was ever married first to Lillian? (And has a daughter by the name of Violet). The dates on this headstone tie in well for my James John Floyd who died in Morris County, New Jersey.

If it helps, my James John Floyd was born in England.

Or, would you happen to have a phone number or address to this cemetery?

Thank you much,

Vickie Smejkal

William Ackhart
Rich,
You took a photo of William Ackhart's (died 1845) gravestone in the Ramapo Reformed Church Cemetery in Mahwah (#6027514). Thank you! I can't read most of the inscription though. Would it be possible to take another photo or transcribe the inscription? I'm new to find a grave so don't know if this is the best way to make the request. Sorry if it's not.
Thank you, Susan Harris

RE: Peter V. Farley
Gosh! You're fast! I had looked at his memorial after you added the article I sent and then wrote my reply/thank you note. I then went back to my typing (typing a full description of his monument/statue) and glanced back up at his memorial page & did a double-take... the page had changed between glances. You had added the second news article. wow. Memorials are managed in "real-time", no refreshing the page needed. Sneaky!

I wasn't expecting it to be posted too, had only just thought to share it with you, since I had just found it. But, thank you for doing so. ^_^

RE: Peter V. Farley
You are welcome and thank you in return. His memorial looks good with it all together like that.

*Note: I just did some more looking and found the following:

"Evening Tribune" (San Diego, CA), Wed., October 30, 1918, pg 4
Casualty List
The following casualties are reported by the commanding general of the American expeditionary forces:
Killed in action, 4; died of wounds, 11; died from accident and other causes, 6; died of disease, 22; wounded severly, 27; wounded (degree undetermined), 67; missing in action, 9. Total, 146.
Killed in Action
Privates
Peter Victor Farley, Whitehouse Station, N.J.

*Same article was in "Twin Falls News" (Twin Falls, ID); "Fort Worth Star-Telegram" (Fort Worth, TX) & "San Jose Mercury News" (San Jose, CA).



Thus, his name & sacrifice was reported from New Jersey to California, from Idaho to Texas. In 11 years of researching, I've not seen anyone else reference any of these articles on him, yet he was recorded in so many newspapers. Amazing.

Thanks again,
Val

Changes in Memorial pages
Richard:
I am appalled at what is happening to FindAGrave memorial pages. Refer to #6078043 for Martha D C Bennett and #119023408 for Frank Ernest Bennett, her husband, my uncle. Your photo of their gravestone is replaced with unreadable material from Ancestry.com and only appears on another page - if you happen to see at the bottom of the page which follows with the notation that I sponsored it. Something is wrong that allows these changes to happen. Is it part of Ancestry ownership? (I pay for an Ancestry World membership but I don't abuse it and republish copy from it.) What can we do about getting back to seeing gravestones instead of scanned records cluttering up the sites. Just had to blow off awhile -- it is an indecent change and I really resent it! Most sincerely, Ida Bennett Watson
