If you find a relative among those I have listed and would like editorial control over their memorial page, I will gladly submit a transfer request.|
I do not delete my memorials in favor of newer created memorials so please don't ask. The deleting of memorials causes issues for those who have linked to them.
Feel free to use any of my photographs for your personal use however you choose, no need to ask or give credit.

Thanks so much for the transfer. I have a lot to enter on it.
|Susie ||Re: John Collins, Jr.|
Thank you so much!!!!! for transferring our John Collins, Jr. to me. I've already typed in a write up I have of him, that was in one of his father's home town newspapers. You may enjoy reading it. Do you know of anyone in the area that researches archive records from that area? I'd like to retrieve his death certificate and newspaper articles that pertain to them and/or the mining going on there.

You requested a tombstone image of this burial:
Since I can't get that, I sent the following to the owner of the entry for inclusion.
Please cut and paste this obit to the bio page. I question the maiden name "Ruth" based on the obit and the Death Certificate. I think it should be Hause. I just noticed someone was asking for a tombstone photo and thought I'd offer this. I'm not family.
Oh, it also confirms the burial date as Oct 7 supporting your comments.

Kahpo, thank you very much for adding gravestone photo-I am fine tuning some of my memorials and saw the photo.
He died a very tragic death.
Thanks for all your contributions to Find A Grave.
Sorry to keep bugging you but I keep discovering that you manage pages of my relatives. I'm new to Find a Grave so I'm not sure if there'a an easier way to request memorial transfer than leaving a message for you. Please let me know if there is.
Otherwise, can you transfer 137199610 to me? :)
