Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have put a great deal of time into creating many of these memorials. I am continually researching the memorials that I've created and often find more things to add. If you have some information you'd like added, let me know.

Please read the Find a Grave policy to see whether your request qualifies a transfer. If it falls within the guidelines, then, please use the EDIT button on the top right of the person's memorial page when you want to request a transfer since it provides me with the link to that memorial.

Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) will not be transferred. The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

I am more than happy to have anyone add their personal photos of people on a memorial. However, I discourage adding death certificates and genealogy material in printed form out of a book.

RE: Alvin Thomas Oquin
Hi Donna,

Thanks for your message. I've spent a fair amount of time studying O'Quinns around the country. The only ones I have found that dropped the apostrophe are some African Americans in Mississippi and Louisiana, so I'm very interested in this. The obituary is not good evidence-many many O'Quinn/O'Quin obits are misspelled-that is, the apostrophe was dropped mistakenly by the obit writer or the newspaper. Can you please tell me how you know the stone is wrong and that he spelled his name without the apostrophe?I really would appreciate it if you will point me to the source-

Thanks
Anna

I got the message that you accepted the edit to O'Quin from Oquin but when I checked, which I always do, the name is still Oquin. Is this a glitch in the Find A Grave system that I need to report?

Donna, I am so sorry to have to bother you again. I am working on my grandmother's Irene Ramsey Trulls family...she had 13 siblings and a grandson with half a brain...a few nights ago I submitted info on this acct with the edit tab for Walter Ramsey and was evidently confused at the time. I listed Walter's grandparents as his parents. His correct father is Jim Ramsey 66737478 and his mother is Alma Katherine Behrens Ramsey 66737490. Obviously, he did not marry his mother so that spouse should be deleted.
I really appreciate the help if you could make the corrections when you get time. If you had rather transfer the acct to me I will be glad to update the acct....either way...thanks a million, Ronnie Mc
