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.

Zephaniah Preston
Received your request to add a transcription for Zephaniah i.e.: 1 year 10 mos. 4 days. Presently there is no photo of his headstone, I understand that some stones in this family plot are face down. Recently got photos of his parents and uncles stones. I only add transcriptions if there is photo of the stone or the cemetery record. Holding request pending. Bill Preston for the family.

Child of Mary Francis Hext Davis
Just wanted to let you know that William Hartley Davis is a child of Mary Elizabeth Hext Davis and not Mary Francis Hext Davis. W. H. Davis is my grandfather. Also, she may be a child of Peyton Davis but not with Sarah. Mary Francis is not listed in the 1860 census with Peyton and Sarah. You can check the San Saba census under Heck. Thank you for your work.

Wow! That was fast. Thank you so much for adding the info. to Effie. I was just about to send the edit to link her with her parents and you have that done also. You must have been working in findagrave at the time I sent it.
You are AWESOME.

Do you have any information that would help further identify this person. Is she a Bilbo? She is my brother-in-law's grandmother. One site lists her death in 1918, another is 1927. Brother-in-law says she was a Bilbo, but I cannot say for certain that this is the right person. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Donna, Thanks for letting me know. I sent the info on the two memorials to find-a-grave so they can merge them. Then no info will be lost. Happy Labor Day. Mary

Ephraim Cemetery
Thank you for pointing out all of the duplicate memorials. However, I did not delete all of them. After looking at all of the memorials - in most of the cases I have all of the links and there are none on the original. If the original had links, then I deleted - if there is nothing on that site, I am not going to unlink dozens of people. In a few cases, nothing was provided by the Angie (contributor) - not even a birth nor a death date even though the headstone information is right there - which I have found in alot of her entries. And in 2 cases I go by the headstone spelling of the last name - not by the way that it sounds to spell. Not unless I see a death certificate, then I will change it and I will delete if it has been proved. Thanks.

Donna Barns,
HI! Thank you very much for allowing me to have our beloved Jean's Memorial Page. I appreciate the time and effort you have put in to creating these memorial pages for my family as well as for other families too. I am grateful for your generosity and feel honored to have Jean's memorial page transferred to me.
Kindest Regards,
