Bio and Links
Bio Photo Many of my & other family members photos I uploaded to Find A Grave are cropping up in individuals family trees on Ancestry and other programs on the web. No mention of where or how they got them let alone who they belong to.

DO NOT download & re- post any of my photos anywhere. Period. If you have done this then Remove them immediately. These photos do not belong to you.

Follow Find A Grave guidelines prior to requesting memorial transfers. NO EXCEPTIONS

I had one person who in late 2014 who within a month's time send me over 650 SAC's. This wannabe FAG cop went through my entire file looking for any and every thing they THOUGHT might be wrong including names engraved on markers. They fired off SAC's as fast as they possible could with no knowledge whatsoever of these people. In the end & after several days with many research hours there were only a handful of meaningfully edits

Find A Grave offered little to no help. Still today they condone people sending these SACS. Anyone with malice could simply destroy thousands of memorials in a short period of time. Simply, if the contributor does not see the SAC or act on it quickly Find A Grave, now Ancestry, will force the edit reghardless even if wrong.

Don't come at me & start quoting the rules on how memorials are suppose to be. My work on this web site is exactly as i want it. I could care less what you think or want it to be!!

If you don't like what i have done here simply change the channel!.

On the other hand, for those decent contributors out there and yes there are still a few left, if you have info to add to the bios or family links then by all means let me know.

This project started out as a blessing for me by preserving memories of our loved ones.

George Snodderly FAG # 97621505
I believe the links to George's parents are incorrect. I've uploaded his death certificate to his memorial providing you with source information supporting the names of his parents as John and Nancy (Butcher) Snodderly. I've sent you a Find A Grave edit with the links to John and Nancy's memorials as his parents.

Found old book
Hello! I was going through the contents of an old book. It belonged to Shirley Green Miller that you have listed in Zion Chapel Cemetery, Blount Co., TN. I see that she has several children listed & I would like to give this book to one of them. Do you know this family?

Walter Carter
I searched through the Gardens of Faith Cemetery this summer to fulfill photo requests, but missed seeing Walter Carter. If you wish to call the cemetery office for the location of his marker, I would be glad to go back to that section of the cemetery to try to locate and photograph it for you. LShue

Memorial# 34193492 John Foland
Hi Don
I noticed the dates on John Foland's headstone were wrong. Birth would be 1806 Death May 18 1856.
If you enlarge the photo you can see the date.

Edit request for Evelyn Brown at Forest Hill
Your two edit requests for Evelyn are currently on hold. There is a grave marker for her, but no information that she is deceased. Consequently, no additional identification information will be added to her memorial page; it's a safety thing. Your requests will be deleted in a week or so.

Fletcher family links
Thanks for making the links. Appreciated!

I found a cemetery in Missouri that is in dire need of fixup by the Union County crew. If only. I'm
going see if I can find a like organization in Missouri and ask that they put that cemetery on their list. I'll send a photo to you then you can tell me if, in your photographing of grave stones, you have seen any worse. I think it is among the top of disaster cemeteries. It is so sad.

Thanks again. Janet

Hey Don, On your memorial #32865509 for James Matther (Matt) Honeycutt. It should be James Madison "Matt" Honeycutt. On his daughter Maggie Hudson death certificate it give father as James Madison. Also he is the son of Elizabeth Honeycutt still do not know who his father was. I really appreciated all the good work that you are doing.
