I will no longer transfer memorials to people who have not been a member of FAG for at least SIX months; there are too many people signing on wanting memorials and never bother to care for them. It took me almost a year to get my father's memorial transferred due to a peson not signing in and checking his memorials.
This does not apply to direct geneations.

I grew up with Decoration Day (2nd Sunday in May) going to all the cemeteries were the family members were and the last one would be Dad's grave in Oneonta, Alabama. Visiting the family plots and placing roses on all the graves. Mom would work on the flowers for days. Afterwards, we would go to "Little Joe's" restaurant and have dinner, they served "Family Style". For those in other areas of the country this is like sitting down at grandma's house with bowls of food set on the table and everyone shares. Some of my most wonderful memories are setting around talking to the family, where they lived, what was their name, and stories. I miss Decoration Day, but FAG helps to fill that place in my heart.

My love is Genealogy and that is why I do FAG.
FAG Guidelines for Transfers are: Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Please if you are related email me, and explain connections.

FAG Guidelines: Bulk surname requests should not be made and will not be honored.

I will NOT transfer all members of a family; requesting to send all aunts, uncles, cousin, etc.... I will transfer based on your relationship.

Virtual Cemeteries

A Find A Grave Virtual Cemetery is essentially a collection of names from the Find A Grave database. As a Find A Grave contributor, you can build Virtual Cemeteries to group listings in whatever way you would like. For example, you might make a 'Smith Family Virtual Cemetery' where you would place all of the members of your Smith family tree. Other examples: 'My Favorite Actors' or 'Memorials I Visit Often'. A VIRTUAL CEMETERY HAS NO RELATION TO A REAL CEMETERY! People listed in your VIRTUAL cemeteries can be buried in many different REAL cemeteries. You can add any name in the Find A Grave database to the Virtual Cemeteries you create and you can choose to make your Virtual Cemeteries visible to the visitors of your Find A Grave Contributor Profile page.
If you have something that needs attention in a timely manner please email me.

RE: Weaver Family
I found Alice. She married a Cagle which was also Primitive Bap. and is buried at Boiling Springs in Alpharetta.

I am sure Bernice is buried at Cherokee Memorial, I do not know her married name. Sometimes I have found someone thru a 1st name. There are hundreds of burials at Cherokee that are not listed. I have referred to "Billion Graves" site and found or verified some.

I knew Brady very well. He lived on Scott Rd. and belonged to Philadelphia (across from Ponders). I also knew Bertha, both had sons that were preachers. I knew Gladys the best since 1963. She lived in Marietta close to Sprayberry.

I think Bertha and Dora must have married brothers.

I am not a Weaver I just knew a lot of them, especially Francis M. Weaver's family.

When I come across family links I like to share and if I am in error that's ok too, it happens.

There is some info. on Weavers in Cherokee History Book from 1997, due in part to Gladys Weaver's family connection and Ponder Cemetery.

I have come across some not so nice people too, but that's ok that is just how some are.

Hi Amby, just a random comment after looking over some family memorials. I find it interesting that Louisa was buried under the name Westbrook vs her husband at her death--Clark. After all, she was married to Robert Clark for 20 years and had 2 children by him. I had a 4 g.grandmother on the Stovall tree who was buried under her 2nd husband's name and would not have found her grave except that her son had put "mother of Elijah G. Stovall" on her TS. Later, Cuz

RE: Jone Gun Shot
Thank you for that info. Did the survey specifically connect Herbert O Jones with the gun shot accident as the son of Sim and Fanny Jones? Any help would be greatly appreciated. My friend, daughter of Hurbert Jones, is at such frail age and is so wanting to have some answers. The census using Herbert O. Jones just doesn't add up. But the hunting accident fits.

Recently I received the AR death record for Herbert Jones d. 1929, ref. the AR death index.
The death record was for a negro baby age 10 mons. 22 day. cause of death bronchial pneumonia. Numerous people have used this death date in their family trees. I'm in the process of notify them that their Herbert Jones does not fit with the 1929 death record. Have a great day. Vickie Henwood
