|Bio and Links|
|My kids think going to cemeteries is what everyone does on vacation. I am a native Pennsylvanian, but have lived in Georgia for over 25 years, minus three years overseas.|
Many of the memorials I have created are NOT my family members, but after photographing, researching, and posting, they do begin to feel like family. I have no ancestors locally. Therefore, I have had to depend upon the kindness of volunteers living elsewhere to create memorials or take photos for me. In return, I try to take as many photos as I can locally to post to non-family memorials, hoping to "pay it forward." If I have taken a photograph you would like to use for your personal, private, off-line use, let me know, and I'd be happy to send you one of a larger resolution. Please do NOT post my pictures on the Internet.
I will *consider* out of guideline transfers of your relatives (who are not also mine) if you are an established, regular contributor to Find a Grave who demonstrates an understanding of the FAQs and purpose of the site. (Don't mean for that to sound judgmental. I am just hoping to avoid potential problems.) Please use the SAC function (edit button) to request transfers, and be sure to let me know specifically how you are related. If you are brand new here, welcome! Folks come and go often, and I like to make sure you're going to stick around and contribute regularly before I transfer. You may want to read the "help with Find a Grave" section to understand the purpose of the site. In addition, folks merely interested in genealogy might well be happier having someone more active to manage the memorials,and use other more-suited sites to build trees. That "virtual cemetery" feature is also useful in sorting out the branches of your tree. In the meantime, please feel free to send me as much additional info as you wish via the edit button on the memorial.

Her father is Harwood Lockett and he is buried on the old Lockett Plantation in an unmarked grave along Aaron's Creek. I believe he died sometime in 1898 though I have not confirmed this yet. He had been living with his son Phil Lockett in Roanoke Va. He was visiting an old friend in the Mecklenburg Co/Clarksville area. A Mr. T. Poole. I found this in the papers of Myrta Lockett Avary at the Atlanta History Center.

Since I'm not related at all, and since you are an active Findagrave contributor, and more likely than me to have additional information to add as time goes on ... I now bequeath to you this memorial. :) I wish I had more of my distant relative's memorials so I could update them without having to go through edits. :)

Hi .. Thanks so much for the information. Are you related to this family? If so, I am more than willing to transfer to you.
|Kate Messer||RE: Columbus Granade|
He's my 2nd Great Grandfather, so would like to have it.

Thank you so much for creating and updating his memorial. I'm glad we could work together to make his memorial more complete. I also want to tell you what a difference your volunteer work here on findagrave.com makes. I appreciate all the time you take to follow up on requests such as mine.

|Merideth S Overton||Roelof I Etlinge wrong info about|
Birth: unknown (1737)
Death: Jul. 21, 1795
58 years, 6 months, 4 days
New York, USA
(Roelof was the son of Jan Eltinge and Jacomyntje Slecht. He married Sarah DuBois, daughter of Abraham DuBois and Margaret Deyo.) Wrong Parents and Wife
Roelof Josiah Elting C-19 was born to Captain Josia Elting and Magdalene DuBois in 1737. In 1760 he married Mary Louw in 1760 at Kingston and had eleven children. Roelof occupied the Bevier-Elting House (now owned and operated as a museum by the Huguenot Historical Society), where he kept a store that was apparently started by his father, Josiah. Roelof sided with Conferentie party during the Coetus-Conferentie controversy in the Dutch Reformed Church during the 1750's and 1760's. In 1766, Roelof, along with members of the DuBois, Low, Van Wagnenen, Van Vliet, Ean and Auchmody families, left the Dutch reformed Church at New Paltz and organized the Conferentie Church, or �Owl Church,� on Libertyville Road in New Paltz.  The church disbanded and rejoined the Reformed Church in 1774.
Roelof J. Elting was imprisoned as a suspected Tory during the American Revolution, despite the fact that he signed the Articles of Association in 1775 (Sylvester). Along with his brother Solomon and friend Cadwaller Colden, Jr., Roelof was banished to British-occupied New York.  Despite these problems, Roelof still managed to gain enough respect in the community to be elected to two municipal offices: Superintendent of Highways to the Hudson River (1772-1773) and Overseer of the Poor (1790). Roelof also served as one of the New Paltz Twelve Men for the share of Louis DuBois from 1791 to 1795. He died in 1795.

William Newton Blanton #108413884 is my great-grandfather. He is originally buried in the section of the cemetery where CSA dead were buried. His marker was lost during one of the two improvements made in the area. Some years back I was able to have a stone placed in the area below the reclining lion. I appreciate what you have posted. There were 3 children, one son and two daughters. The last child, a daughter, was born in Mississippi. The first two in SC.

Hi Linda, I think I have fixed all your requests. If you need any transferred, just let me know.
|Fawn||Middleton Cemetery of Washington County, IA|
Hello there- Just wondering what you know about Middleton Cemetery in washington County, IA? I live not too far from there and was thinking about checking out the pile of markers there, but wanted to know if the farmer or whoever owns the land is very receptive to that. There is a photography request, so by law, I could go on private land to photograph/tend to the grave, but would like to know what I can before I go :)
