If I have prepared a memorial for your immediate family member and you would like it transferred to you, please use the Suggest a Correction link located by clicking the Edit tab in the upper right hand corner of each memorial. In your message, please state your relationship to the deceased. I will consider distant family members, friends and totally unrelated people if you have something to contribute which I have not done already. |
Also, if you find any errors I have made, please use the Suggest a Correction link. I appreciate people helping me fix my errors. Also please send any additional information you have (including Family Links) and I will add it to the memorial. Find A Grave gives 30 days to make changes, but I try to get it done quicker than that. If you don't hear back from me within 3 weeks, please feel free to ask again.
Thanks to all who flower any of the memorials which I created, but especially my parents.
I love Find A Grave and I especially enjoy adding photos to memorials so that family members can visit their family member's graves at anytime. However, I ask that you respect my efforts. Please, do NOT copy my photos to ancestry.com without giving me credit. Simply indicate © 2006-2014 J.Sullivan on Find A Grave. I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them. If you want to use them for commercial purposes or to create your own web site, that is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends and families headstones on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. Please note that other members may have different opinions on this and you should honor their wishes. It is illegal to copy a photo without the photographer's consent.

Important admin notices posted in the forums:
Per Mark, the admin:
1. Location of body unknown should be used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. You should however make every effort to locate the final disposition and update it as soon as possible.
2. See part 1. Not everyone in my direct family has been located and thus none of them are linked. I make notes in bios of those who have known locations. Such as "Son of X and Y" or "Also father of X". What I do is look for new listings and ask for updates when a generous member has finally found a missing relative.
3. No duplicates are allowed. Period.
This is Find A Grave and long-term unknown dispositions solely for the purpose of creating family links is outside the main intent of the website.
Per AJ, the admin:
Photograph the grave/gravesite "in-situ", or as it appears in that moment in time. The purpose is to show the grave as it is, be it dirty, cluttered, broken, or pristine. It is not your job to clean it, clear it, fix it, or decorate it. The graves are not yours to do as you please. Remember, one person's "good deed" just might be another person's vandalism. Go take lots of photos...but do it like an anthropologist and do not disturb the grave site.
Note for self, this is a link I might need to know how to make one day:

|IRISANA||Your reflection (shadow?)|
I was so impressed with picture of your parents tombstone that I copied it!!! That is a great picture and a greattt idea that you posted it. WOW!!!
I have no idea or desire to use this photo in anyway.
I am just fascinated with cemeteries and tombstones as I think many of us using (and enjoying) Find A Grave are.
Your hard work and talent for writing bios/memorials is appreciated. Just keep up the good work.

I wonder if I may have your permission to use your cemetery photo on my family website. Check it out at www.freienmuth-shortridge.com/shortridge/cemeteries.html. This is how I'd be using the photos and obituaries I find on Find A Grave, with 'used with permission' in the caption.
|Barbara Mullally||RE: Kenneth Elliott memorial page|
Did you have a memorial for Rachel Mary Hamlin? I think that's who I wrote to you about. There was a request for a photo of her grave stone and I accidentally photoed the wrong picture there, however, it has been fixed.
|Barbara Mullally||Kenneth Elliott memorial page|
The picture showing the "Oak Grove Cemetery" sign should be remove as Mr. Elliott is buried at the Evergreen Cemetery in Girard township.

Thank you so much for going to the trouble to photograph my grandma's marker; it is much appreciated. Thank you again!!! Much love and God Bless You!
|Angela Miller||Thank you!|
I just wanted to say thank you for putting 1SGT William Everett Bryant on Find A Grave.
I found a picture of him in my Grandmas pictures from her Brother when they were stationed in Texas.
My Great Uncle Harley Norman Gregory went on to Germany but was killed in action. It was important to me that I found one of the men he knew. I've found 4 out of 7 he had pictures of...thank you again so very much!
|Judith Wilcox Szczesny||Sister|
I think my sister only did one memorial in 2008 and that was for our great grandmother Juliaette Skinner Wilcox - 28398214 - in Pine Grove Cemetery, Corry, PA. On that memorial it just says: Gail. She than got ill, and did not do anymore memorials as far as I know and I don't think she did any others under any other name. When I requested a transfer from Find A Grave per email I mentioned that she was deceased.
|Bud Frohn||Cloverdale Cemetery|
Thank you very much for transferring Julie Ann McKamey's memorial to me.
|Claire Ehrhart Abel||RE: Levi McClain|
Levi was married to Adeline Wilkinson b 1832 to John N Wilinson and Mary Jane Higginbottham
Levi was born 1833 to Rev Matthew McClain and Emily Swincher
One of their daughters Nettie Frances McClain b 1867 in CA Married Benn Woodruff in 1889 in Boone Co., Ind
She had 4 children - the last was born Dec 27 1895
Nettie died Mar24 1896
Levi placed the children with friends
The last child Ray Otis Woodruff was my cousin's father - he was 40 yrs old before he knew he had siblings or anything about his birth parents.
The 2 other boys Plemmy and Glenn married but died childless. The daughter LaBertha married and adopted a girl Betty Jane Wiggam - they lived in Ohio
I have been trying to connect this family for my cousin - her dad has been gone a long time now
I have Nettie being buried in Zionsville but never found Benn Woodruff
That's about all the information I have
