Go to your Contributor Home Page and you will see an Edit Tab on the right hand side at the top. You will now need to approve or decline those edits submitted by users.

I am helping my mother with her genealogy research by locating our ancestors' graves. Then, I got involved with several friends, helping them create their trees and memorials. You can see the names we are following in my virtual cemeteries.

Along the way, I have found others' ancestors and created their pages. Now I am hot on the trail to document our ancestry to Col. Daniel Boone. And, to find the "Women of the American Revolution." If I have entered any information that is incorrect, please contact me for a correction. I want to keep the information as accurate as possible.

I'm happy to transfer management to family members, just ask! Please use the "Edit" tab and "Suggest a Correction" when doing so and remember to give your member# along with your relationship or reason for the transfer.

I believe that memorials should belong to family members whenever possible, as family have a personal interest in honoring their relatives and are better able to complete, maintain and improve memorials with additional details and research. I am more than willing to have family members "adopt" them.

Please feel free to use any photos I have posted in your research work. Photo courtesy of Find-a-grave member #47361005

Note that, once I have dealt with a message, I will delete it, so if you don't see yours there, that's what happened.

RE: Sarah Merryman
I got to thinking...I noticed on the memorial that it said "(St. Paul's)" in connection with Sarah's death. So I did a search and found a memorial for her at St. Paul's Cemetery in Baltimore (see This is a much older cemetery and more likely to be the right one than Loudon. There are no other Loudon (or Louden) cemeteries in Maryland aside from Loudon Park National Cemetery, which is a military cemetery that covers the Civil War and following. I'm curious as to what the reference to Loudon Park Cemetery means, but I'm pretty sure St. Paul's is correct.

Nonetheless, there are a couple of Merryman plots at Loudon Park that I will check, just in case she was moved there after Loudon Park opened.

Memorial edits
Tim Hess is not the most cooperative or speediest about edits or anything else. If you could ever get him to transfer the memorial to you, it would be great. He is well known for making mistakes - he often posts a dates that are different from headstone photos.

You had written to me asking about Isaac Ferrell, # 120463934, I used Internment Books directly from the cemetery and it shows Isaac as being buried Jan 12, 1888 in what is known as Free Ground in Old Part of Cemetery, If dates don't jive then maybe not correct one. There is also 2 unknown Ferrell graves in Old Hill Section. Section A, Block No 1, Fifth row, graves 56 and 57, nothing more is known, They are in the very old book starting 1837, but no dates were entered for them only the name Ferrell., Very few if any tombstones remain in that area if there ever was one.

Frieda Erickson
Why don't you ask Tim Hess to put complete information on his memorial for Frieda Erickson? We feel it is more important to include as much information as is available and then we will remove ours.

James Tomer
I saw your request for James Tomer's picture in Twin Valley Memorial Park. I have taken a lot of pictures but have not indexed them yet. Can you call and find out what section the person is in? Then I can search for them.

RE: Boone
I agree - but when Ancestry bought Rootsweb and geocities they took the information we all had worked so hard collecting and then want to charge us for it - they didn't even ask if they could use it - that's why I don't like them -

RE: Boone
I have taken all my things off line - I had it on rootsweb and I was getting so many requests to search for people that I took everything down
I am wondering what is going to happen to Find A Grave now that Ancestry has bought it
I get emails that they refuse to put up any changes on some that I know I have given the right information and there is nobody to respond to???
I am just going to gather as much as I can on Find A Grave and put it in my database.
I am a DAR also - Jeremiah Boone - my great aunt and mother also had John Neville and Isaac Cox - but nowdays they want so much documentation and to re-do everything -- I don't go to meetings anymore so why bother LOL

I have some orginal documents and pics from the early 1900s that my great aunt "Billie" McGee and Dr Mayfield did - but that is mostly on Jeremiah's line - he was Daniel's cousin - his brother by that name died young.
