I will be happy to try and obtain a photo from Hillside Cemetery in Roslyn PA, BUT you must call or write the cemetery first and obtain their plot information. Hillside is very large and contains well over 25 thousand burials.
IVY HILL CEMETERY:
Ivy Hill has informed me they will no longer provide locations of photo requests. YOU MUST be a family member. So please obtain plot information FIRST before requesting photos.
ALSO PLEASE READ:
I am more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links to the memorials. I will continue to transfer memorials within the Find A Grave guidelines and for those that have been sponsored.
UPDATE SEP 2010: If you are considering asking for a transfer outside of the Find A Grave guidelines, please note from the FAQs:
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.
Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Third, If you have extensive additions/changes to make to a memorial, please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "Edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial management transferred to you. This will send an email request to the contributor, even if there is not an email address listed on their contributor page.
Fourth, Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not make the transfer. Bulk surname requests should not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.
Fifth, The "Suggest a correction" feature may also be used to submit corrections, an original biography, and family links to memorials that do not fall under the above definition. (Be sure to include the memorial ID#s for the family links and how they are related, father, mother or spouse. The original contributor should make any corrections and add any additional information you have for that memorial, such as links to parents and spouses, provided the information is accurate.
Sixth, Please note that it is not appropriate to request a transfer and then, after receiving the transfer, delete that page and substitute it with a new memorial that you have created. This practice denies credit to the original contributor. Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.
NOTE: If you are unable to edit a memorial after it has been transferred to your account, try logging out of Find A Grave then logging back in. [Top]
What if a member will not transfer my relative to me?
If the memorial in question is a direct relative within four generations (siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents) to you and the original submitter is not direct family, then your wishes supersede theirs under our "Family First" policy. If they refuse to transfer your relative to you, contact the administration and we will work on it for you.
Please remember that there are thousands of contributors to Find A Grave, and it is highly likely that some of those contributors will actually be part of your family tree and share some of your ancestors.
Also, the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.
To make changes or edits:
Thanks for being part of find a grave! I do have a favor to ask, instead of posting to the contributors personal page when you would like to add information or dates to memorials that have been entered by others Find A Grave asks that you submit the proper way:
1. Click edit on the upper right hand corner of the memorial you would like to add information for
2. Choose one of the following:
Suggest a correction or provide additional information
Add a photo
Add flowers and a note
Sponsor this memorial / Remove advertisements
Edit my Virtual Cemetery settings for this memorial
Share this memorial on Facebook
Thanks again and hope you enjoy Find A Grave!

Sharon, edit for middle initial for memorial should read M(ilton) per the 1870 census
Please forgive the extra work. I made the mistake of assuming that because these children were buried near James and Jane Henderson they must be their children. However, the dates made me look more closely and realize they were actually their grandchildren from Joseph and Eliza Henderson
|Leona Henderson||Henderson, Fred D, John M. and Ida|
Sharon, I have submitted an edit for Fred D. Henderson based on my knowledge of this family and the 1870 Census for Joseph Henderson. Fred D. is Alfred D. Henderson born 1851 to Joseph and Eliza Henderson whose residence was Derry, Westmoreland, PA at the time. You will also see John M. on this census. Ida died so young she would not have appeared on any census.
This family was living in Armstrong, Indiana County, PA in 1860 and does not show Ida on that census either. Therefore, I believe she died sometime after 1860 and before 1870. Alfred and (John)Milton do appear on the 1860 census.
Does this give enough support to make the family connections on Find A Grave?

Thank you for the link!
|John Sloan||Find A Grave 26095161~ Lovina H. Dimmig Kelly|
Sharon, I am researching the Dimmick family lines. My reason for contacting you is that I have a Lavinia H DIMMICK b 20 Jul 1873...One variant spelling of the surname is Dimming and the first name is similar in spelling, the birth date is exactly 1 year apart. The geographical location are almost identical...as the 1880 Census has the family listed as residing in Lower Saucon, Northampton, Pennsylvania. Do you have any additional information on Lovina/Lavina or can you suggest any research routes. Thank you for you help and for doing a remarkable job on Find A Grave.

|Jennifer White||Merle and Isey Houser|
Thank you so much for the prompt updates to their memorials! I appreciate the time you must take to manage the memorials you have created.
Incidentally, I've since learned that Isey's middle name was Olga. Not a pressing detail, but thought I'd pass it along.
Again, greatly appreciated! Thank you!
