About transfers— |
If you can supply a reasonable explanation as to why you would better manage a memorial, or give sufficient proof of direct line relationship to the individual, I will be obliged to transfer it.
Requests for transfers without an explanation will be archived.

|Ruth ||RE: Iva (Yarber) Church|
THANK YOU for adding Iva's maiden name so promptly. I appreciate this very much!

|Mary||RE: English Family Cem.—Avery|
I got my information - both the cemetery and the dates of birth and death - from "An Index to Avery County Cemeteries" The description stated that the English Family Cemetery is located between Ingalls and Spruce Pine on the Frank Phillips property, on left going up the river. Only 3 graves, the third a small, unmarked grave.
I don't have the date that book was published - it could have been some time ago, and the gravestones fallen or obliterated in some way by now.
If you could find the graves that would be fantastic! Good luck out there.

|Greene-Shemwell||RE: Thomas Greene|
No, please, go ahead and add it.
Thank you for all your help.
I got the message about the Trivette Cemetery.
I did make it, but I didn't add a map cause I was only told that was the name of it. I am in Idaho and doing research from here. Gaynell Nichols has been there and took the photo's for me.
|Leaton Clark||Gurney Canter|
Thanks for the info.
|Robert C. Peurifoy||Hampton|
Thanks, I made the move.
I'll contact the Fix a Cemetery forum to delete the Hampton gravesite. I have a list to sent them.
|Robert C. Peurifoy||Reed Family|
Links and changes made. Thanks for the help. I did the initial survey late in the day and my photos were somewhat difficult to read. Chet went back in and took the photos before I could get back and I just abandoned the work.
|LaDon Brennan||Gragg photos|
Thank you for the very nice photos. In addition to enhancing the memorials, I was able to complete dates and correct spelling. It was thoughtful of you to notify me of the inconsistencies.
|Ruth ||RE: Ivory Hollander Photo|
You are most welcome! I appreciate you giving me the 'heads up' on the correct location of the grave. There are so many cemeteries with like names in that area and it is very confusing. But, I thought, surely, Ivory would be buried in the same cemetery as his mother. The creator of her memorial has a photo of her headstone, so I presume that memorial is in the right place.
However, I know of one instance where a husband/wife share a headstone and their memorials are in different cemeteries (another case of like name of cemeteries). And - the same photo is posted (by the same contributor) on each of the memorials! I finally gave up trying to get this resolved and just posted a note on each of the memorials.
Thanks again - I appreciate ALL of the work you have done and continue doing to assist ALL of us.

|LaDon Brennan||Gragg cemeteries|
Thanks for sending correct cemetery, I have moved those you sent SACs for and submitted photo requests. I note there are at least 7 Gragg cemeteries listed in Avery County alone, plus several in other counties in N.C. -- I corresponded with someone a couple years ago who planned to photograph each Gragg cemetry and "clean-up" the listings, but I did not get feedback if that happened. I appreciate your efforts in this regard.
