Bio and Links
Bio Photo We live in Southern Indiana where we raised our 5 sons.

Please feel free to use any of my memorial stone photos. I seldom post private photos but when I do, please ask first before using them.

#1. I regret that I will no longer just hand over the work I have done.
Naturally, I will transfer within guidelines and will transfer outside guidelines in case by case situations. Tell me WHY you want my hard work given to you. And I am perfectly capable of making "extensive" additions or changes.

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.
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
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.

Memorial# 45710664
Richard Wright - believed born 1798 in Powell's County, VA. died 1833. This is the 'rest of the story'. Thought it might be of interest:

"The Cholera Scourge [page 200] – “The dreadful epidemic that prevailed in Salem in 1833 almost depopulated the town for a while. …”.

Fatalities Not Confined to Town. “ Those who died in the County of the dread disease [cholera] were Mary Albertson, John Lockland, James Craig, Peter Vancleave, Mrs. Keller, Mr. Sapp and wife, Joseph Trowbridge, Misses Elizabeth and Eleanor Allen, ELI WRIGHT, Mr. Tigner and wife, Mrs. C Prow, Mrs. kindle, Mrs. bunch, Mrs. Hole, Mrs. Scott, Mrs. Zink and two sons; RICHARD WRIGHT and George Killion…..The disease disappeared almost as suddenly as it came, there being no cases after the 7th of July [1833]”.

Joseph F. Evans Memorial# 82892820
Hi, I have a question about Joseph Evans' middle name. On his baptism papers and on his WWI Draft card it states his middle name as Frederick/Fred. Did he later use the middle name of Ford?

I put in a correction for Rosetta Leffler 84586096. I took a picture of her stone and the correction reflects the information on the stone. Thanks so much for all of your hard work.

Samson Emery
Your posted record of Samson Emery, at Big Spring Church of Christ Cemetery says that he died in 1864, but he could not have died in 1864 since his daughter, Alberta, who is my Great Grandmother wasn't born until 1869 and he can still be found in the 1870 census. Could you please recheck your information and correct it? Thank you.

Ernest Earl Etzler
Re: date of birth for E E Etzler, his military registration cards both show 17 April 1884 but his Find A Grave entry shows 13 April 1884. There is no picture of a headstone so it is not possible to verify from that source. Do you have another source that shows 13 April as the correct date? Thanks, Steve Hall

Zink not Link
Please look at your # 42658730, James Link in Crown Hill Cemetery, Salem, IN. The gravestone shows "Zink". Thank you. Linda Standish

RE: John Voyles
Well, it was in fact a "homocide." What you might do is just refer the interested to the other listing. I think Voyles researchers would be interested. Lots of references around to the fact without details.

Sarah Mitchell Combs
My roots are in Southern Indiana and I have appreciated your many contributions to Find A Grave. I realize you have a lot of memorials to manage. Just one that I came across that could use some tweaking -- Sarah Mitchell Combs in Mill Creek Cemetery - note should read daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth (Harmon) Mitchell.
Thanks for all your time and effort -- Happy hunting!!

RE: # 48426812 Frank Watson
Probably... my mother is a Watson. Thanks for clearing that up. I had Lizzie Conway but did know the rest.
