Bio and Links
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: Thomas Jefferson Suggs & his wife Martha
It's me again, I checked the Missouri archives, the death certificate for Martha is very wrong,a lot of mistakes, and they don't have Thomas'..I have he died in 1966, the archives only go to the date on his stone is wrong. The stones on Steve's are much newer made,so I would think yours are the correct ones,just they etched the wrong yr on his death.. According to my uncle his grandfather had a Native American Funeral rites on a local reservation..Thomas was also Military, he was enlisted for WWI & II..Martha's middle name is Caroline,her father was Capt Hiram Fewell and Effa Polson, name of husband is wrong, it says Thomas J Fewell,the informant Charles Suggs,was the son..her birth is wrong.. but for the cemetery it says Glensted..I will ask cousin Carla,and do a bit more research..maybe one set was done cause the other couldn't be found or something.. nvr got email,I will get back at you,might take a few days

William Moore
You have a memorial for this man in Moore's cemetery. I don't know if this would interest you or not, but I'm going to add a link on here that has a notation where the cemetery is. The map is from 1853-89. It was odd, but from the old map and knowledge of the area, I found the area the cemetery would be in, and then came here to look and see if it was listed and found this in the exact place i had it narrowed down to.

Moore cemetery is just to the left of the chronology list.

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Georgia Hallford in Taberville Cemetery (Memorial# 34952090).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the non-profit Alford American Family Association's collection of Missouri Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Richard Parker

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

In general
As a person who is getting started on Find A Grave (I've contributed a little so far), I can say with certainty that I will NEVER have your attitude. Rude, condescending and belittling.
When all is said and done, this is a website not the Magna Carta. Chill out and learn some respect.

RE: James Henry and Mary Maxine Suggs
Thanks a lot for letting me know about the other memorials for James and Mary. They actually were added 2 days prior to mine. I usually check pretty good; but, guess these slipped up on me. Mine have many links, so, I'll be looking into it. Thanks again.

Ok, thanks for the clarification. Perhaps people would not jump to the wrong conclusion it some of your messages were not so negative. And you sir, have a lot of nerve calling anyone "narrow minded". Have a nice day and life!
