We would be glad to help you with adding information, but
YOU NEED TO USE THE EDIT TAB.
Due to the number of emails that we receive, we reserve the right to not respond to those who do not USE THE EDIT TAB per FAG guidelines. We do not add information from "Visitors" to FAG.
Per FAG policy, we have 30 days to make a correction/addition. Apparently the edits are not always linked with an email, but sit in the FAG edit file awaiting discovery. We try very hard to take care of these requests promptly.
We are not responsible for the 'half-sibling' notes on links or repetitious links. That is a database or submitter problem. If you do not understand why, please contact FAG.
TRANSFERS & CORRECTIONS-----Please follow the Find A Grave Guidelines for transfers and corrections and specify the relationship. "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren." Please use a Virtual Cemetery to collect your non-direct ancestors or special populations.
If you feel that you are somehow 'entitled' to our copyrighted work and pictures, do not be surprised that you will be held accountable. Each and every photo on this website is the copyrighted material of the person who took the photo (some may have been passed down or have been granted permission to post/use a photo) and usually posted it. Permission is usually granted when requested. This is not about sharing. The photos and pics are in fact, shared on this site. It is about the common courtesy to those that spend time, effort and money all at their own personal expense to help preserve American history.
We have met many wonderful people through FAG. Unfortunately, there have been a number of individuals who have been rude, who have not understood that we are volunteers, who have been otherwise abusive or who have been frankly bizarre and/or threatening. To that end, we will follow the FAG guidelines. It is about the hunt, not the numbers. But dealing with some of the FAG members and interlopers, we have learned to follow the guidelines.
Our family names/linages include:
ADAMS, BEHEN, BELL, BENNETTS, BICKERTON, BLYTHE, BULLOCK, BUTLER, CALLISON, CHAMNESS [CHAMLESS], COLEMAN, COCKRELL, CORDER, COONTZ, CROSS, DAVIS, DAY, DOUGHERTY, DUDLEY, DUNLIN, DUNN, FEASTER, FEHAN, GENTRY, GROSE, HENINGER, HUNGERFORD, JOHNSON, LAWRIE, LEMMONS, LORD, MARSHALL, MAXEY [MAXCY], MCCOWN, MONTGOMERY, MURRAY, NEEHAN, OVERTON, PRESLEY, RUTHVEN, SMOOT, SPLAWN, STANSBURY, [TATHAM, TATEM, TATUM], TAYLOR, TERRELL, THURMAN, TIPTON, WARD, WATERS, WEBSTER, WEINWRIGHT, VOTAW, WINSTON, WOOD, YOUNG AND ETC. THIS IS THE SHORT LIST.
We have been working on family genealogy for about 35 years. We have a great number of documents that were passed down the family lines. Both of us have formal training in advanced, graduate level research.

Nancy Jane Matthews # 94393885 Thank you so much for the information you posted for Nancy Jane Matthews. I have been trying to track her down and figure out why my family has called her "Grandma Warner," and your bio explained her multiple marriages well. She is my great great grandmother through the Anderson side.
I would like to post your bio, referencing either you or find a grave, on FamilySearch. I would also love to copy the photo of the grave and the family group photo so that other extended family member may view this information. If I don't have your permission, I understand and will try and find other sources.
Sophia G. Moran--Memorial# 90578805 Believed to be my 4th great-grandmother. Can you tell me what the inscription says concerning her age, as I can't make out the number of years? I have her year of birth as 1794-1795. Thanks.
Nele Rita Kepley Would you have any objection to my using your photo of Nele's headstone, #48851604, on my Ancestry.com family tree? She was a cousin of mine who lost her father, husband, and son in the military service.
RE: Christman/Chrisman burials Cathy: In regard to Memorial 66570344. I like that you added that note. Thanks for your quick response. Yes, it is interesting. I have written Lou Ann (Maintained by) to see if she can shed any light on whether there are two stones, one moved, or what. I also noted the Christman spelling. Our "original" ancestor that hit these shores in the early 1700s spelled his name with a T but was dropped mostly after that generation - then someone down the line even changed it to Crismon.... go figure.
Thanks again. I am so grateful to all that add to the Find A Grave site - it has been helpful in so many instances.
