■ Use the "Suggest a Correction" feature on the appropriate memorial to submit information or any requests. I follow the Find-A-Grave guidelines regarding the transfer of memorials. Any transfer requests should only be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. |
■ If you send me a request for transfer of a memorial, please explain exactly how you are related to the person. Thanks.
■ Find A Grave's primary purpose is a graves registration website.
■ Find A Grave's secondary purpose is a memorialization/remembrance site.
■ Find A Grave's tertiary purpose is a genealogical resource. If a listing or contribution corresponds with only the primary purpose, it has fulfilled its part of Find A Grave's mission and is not required to correspond with the secondary and tertiary purposes. Fulfilling the other two is welcomed, encouraged and deeply appreciated, but as far as Find A Grave's purpose goes, a memorial page isn't lacking if it does not.
I live in Cheyenne, WY. Love the hunt for interesting history in my area.
My goal in Find-A-Grave is to compose the best memorials I can for the people I am honoring. I add as many people as I possibly can to Find-A-Grave and then, as time permits, I do what I can to link them with their relatives and I also add an obituary or write as much of a biography as I can based on available records and information.
I welcome your reviews of the memorials I have posted, and I welcome any information you might provide to help compose the best memorials we can.

Thanks for the heads up on my memorial for Eustage DeLario being a duplicate. I've deleted mine and moved the picture of his footstone to your memorial #76936476 with the headstone.

The following is from a file off of Ancestry.com that should clear up the death and burial date for Mr. Foote:
The Carbon County Journal; no 41; March 31, 1900, page 3
TAPS HAVE SOUNDED
John F Foote Has Joined the "Silent Army of the Dead"
Death has again laid his hands on the little band of patriots which compose the G.A.R. of this city. Another veteran of the Civil War has passed into the great beyond and his body now lies "where glory guards with solemn round the bivouac of the dead."
John F. foote, after a long illness, on Tuesday evening gave up the struggle just at a time when his friends believed that his health was much inproved and that he would probably live for many months yet.
Death came suddenly. On Tuesday afternoon he was feeling ususually well and walked about quite a little, enjoying the warm sunshine. In the evening he took a sudden turn for the worse, and although Dr. Maghee was soon at his side, nothing could be done to stay the band of the destroyer.
Deceased was one of the earliest settlers in Rawlins and was father of the first white child born in this city. Mr Foote was born in Indiana in 1840, and when a child, moved to Wisconsin with his parents, where he resided until the breaking out of the Civil War, when he enlisted and went to the front with the first regiment of Wisconsin artillery and participated in the disastrous battle of Bull Run.
In 1864 he was married in Janesville, Wis., and four years later came to Rawlins, where he has since resided, having engaged in various business enterprises during his lengthy residence in this city. he leaves to mourn for him a wife and a married daughter, Miss May Baldwin of Denver.
The funeral took place Thursday afternoon from the residence, under the auspices of the G.A.R. and W.R.C., and was largely attended, Rev. E.J. Statom delivering an eloquent sermon.
The casket was draped in the national colors and was covered with the floral offerings of friends and comrades.
The pallbearers were I.C. Miller, R.A. Smiley, W.R. Brown, Wm Jungquist, Robert Wilson and Wm Daley, while the members of the G.A.R. marched behind the hearse as a guard of honor.
Card of Thanks- For the many courtesies extended by the good people of Rawlins during the long illness and recent death of our husband and father, we desire to tender our heartfelt thanks and express the wish that you, one and all, if the time ever comes when you need assistance of friends, may meet with as generous and large hearted people as we have met.
We especially wish to thank the members of the G.A.R. and W.R.C.
Mrs Olive Foote
Mrs May Baldwin

Thank you for linking him to his father!
|Nancy Berntson||Anice and Elery Bird|
Are you related to Elery #113651830 and Anice #113651823. They are my Grand Aunt and Uncle. I was wondering if you would transfer them to my care if you are not related. Thank you
|G M Rice||RE: Eva Bryant Photo|
Thank you so much for the transfer. I will take your advice and make a new request. The stone must have been wet or damp and the mold on the stone just makes it impossible to read. At least we know that there is a stone!?

I've been researching the Buckwalter family for over 15 years, and... I must say, memorial 20116261 is by far the most unique I've ever seen!
I love this!

But 29174606 doesn't have anything correct about the person other than the first name. The day of death is wrong, there's no year, the last name is spelled wrong, there's no information and no picture of the marker. 29174606 looks like an incorrect entry.
|Rosa Olveda||Memorial Transfer Request|
