Leland S Greene
You took a photo of Leland S Greene's gravestone. I wonder if I could bother you for another take, as the stone is partially covered by flowers. Its okay to move them, so that we can see the complete stone. Leland's father would be my Great Great grandfather, so Leland is my Great Uncle. Would like management of his memorial unless you're a relative. Thank you for your time and volunteer efforts. It is truly appreciated!

Find A Grave Changes
A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page. Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

RE: James Earl Allen Drayton
But there was nearly $1.2 million to benefit the families of the fallen firefighters. Plus $100,000 from Leary Firefighters Foundation. And The store owner set up an Education Scholarship for the 7 Firefighters children.

Why didn't Charleston pay for all nine headstones? OR the State?
The headstone that looks homemade is so sad. Also the lack of maintenance on one grave is horrific.

James Earl Allen Drayton
You commented on James Drayton’s headstone:
“You would think this individual would have received a better headstone, what a shame"

Check out these other Fire Officers that died in the same Furniture Store Fire:

Rodney Bradford “Brad” Baity Find A Grave Memorial # 19977196

Mark Wesley Kelsey Find A Grave Memorial # 19977182

Why do some of the 9 Firefighters have elaborate headstones and other have nothing or basic?

Gerald J Maguire in New Cathedral
HI Mike,
I just discovered a Vietnam KIA who is buried in New Cathedral Cem. I see that you have taken photos there. If it is convienent, next time you are there could you please help me out. His # is 146558212, and I called and got his burial location. Your findagrave contributions are so wonderful. My need for Gerald's stone, helps me complete a memorial book for the men who survived in his Company during the Vietnam Era. Gerald has another memorial which has not been updated to include the cemetery, but I plan to ask for a merge after I get the stone photo. If he is buried ext to parents or other Maguires, please advise.

Thanks so much for any help you can give.

Captain John Martin 1730-1790
Mr. Bell I am requesting a transfer of the memorial for Captain John Martin in Camden, South Carolina. He is my maternal 8th great grandfather and I have a lot of information I could add to his memorial. Thank you.
