Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thanks to all the people that have transferred memorials of my family members to me. I want to wish everyone a very healthy and prosperous 2014

I thought I might borrow what Jeff Gonyea on his Find a Grave profile:

"We don't "own" the memorials we manage - they are not ours. We may create them, we may update them, we may transfer them to others - we are but stewards. They are Find A Grave memorials of human beings, departed. They are not "friends" on a social media network website to be collected like baseball trading cards. And there's no prize for the one who dies with the most.

The reward (for me) comes from maintaining the most accurate and dignified memorials I can. What we record becomes history, and a record in someone else's family tree. We have a responsibility to do a good job of it. It's a privilege and honor."

Well put Jeff

Walter Nixon Reed
Joseph, are you related to Walter Nixon Reed. He is my Great Uncle. Uncle Walter was a younger brother to my grandmother, Katie Reed Hankins. Katie was the oldest child of Taylor and Nancy Reed. My husband and I are working on Ancestry and Find A Grave all the time. If you are a relative, please send me the name of a memorial you maintain so I can send you an "edit" message with my email. I would like to share what family information I have. Thanks.

Are you related? If so I transfer, but don't just transfer for the sake of transfer. Let me know!

Kudos for borrowing "Jeff's" words
Read your "borrowed" statement and loved it! Wish "all" of us on Findagrave realized this! It would be an even "better" than site than it is! Thanks for sharing!

Ina Killough photo request
Good Morning Joseph,
Just wanted to let you know I have claimed your photo request and will try to get out to Lakeland Hills in the next few days. Have a great day!
Sincerely, Brenda Gumbert

I put those on to help a person that was researching those names. It would be better if you took over the management of these memorials as you are suppling the data.
Best regards, Bud

Either my crooked fingers or written that way in the Houston Cemetery book. I changed it.
If this memorial is family/friend and you would like to manage it I will be happy to transfer him over to your care.
Best regards to you and all yours, Bud
