My husband and I enjoy finding monuments for other people and am extremely grateful to the volunteers who have found my own people for me. We've been working on finding the little pioneer cemeteries in the area and putting their inhabitants online. Four of our memorial pages even helped to catch a gravestone thief. Cemeteries are extremely vulnerable to vandalism, theft, and the damage of time and weather. We appreciate all of the volunteers out there who are working so hard to document them before they are lost to history. Lately we're working hard to upload GPS coordinates with the Findagrave App-- WE LOVE IT!|

Please note that I adhere to Findagrave policy, whether or not you may agree with it:
◊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.
Transfers are only made within the guidelines set up by Find A Grave. These guidelines are in place for a reason - whether one cares to accept them or not. I am not going to debate what the owner has deemed acceptable for his site with members who choose not to agree with the guidelines. "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 willing to consider transferring ownership to you if you have a close family member among my records. I rarely transfer relationships more distant than first cousin... just having someone "in my family tree" or "a relative" will not elicit a transfer.
If you want information added to a memorial, go to the memorial and use the "Edit" tab to send me the information-- including family links. I will add information to the memorial, I do not transfer just because someone wants to add links or other information. Bottom line: what are you planning on doing with the entry that I haven't already done or am unable to do?
I may not transfer to you if the number of memorials that you manage is significantly greater than the number that you have contributed. Also, I hesitate to transfer memorials to those who do sloppy work, so emails laden with misspellings or other inaccuracies generally are ignored. Bad spelling is a pet peeve of mine.
On the other hand, I will always transfer if a memorial is sponsored. And if you upload family photos or in some other way add value to the memorial, I am much more willing to transfer.
I welcome all corrections to my own work. Some records were imported using OCR so have inevitable errors, both from the original records and from machine interpretation. I am only human and make mistakes, too, but will always make it priority to correct them.

|Sue Ann Harfst||RE: Proud photos|
You are very welcome.
|Matt M.||RE: John Addison Love|
You're welcome, there was a very large "Love" headstone with multiple family members on it but none of them with the name or date requested, no initials were close, there was a "JC Love" (and it was initials) and there were several "Loves" in the area around that, but none that you requested and they had no record of it.

I claimed your photo request for Fay and found no marker at that grave location or the row above or below; it is the same location given in the Hubbard Cemetery's list of burials. I will make a note to that affect on my claim pg.
|Carol & David||Ellen Stecker Hunter # 31521791|
Thank you very much for your quick response on the transfer and for adding the information on the gentlemen from the 153rd Regiment. I appreciate it.
|Carol & David||Ellen Stecker Hunter # 31521791|
Hi Carrie, I know you are probably busy with school but I wanted to touch base on the above memorial. I sponsored Ellen's memorial about 3 or more weeks ago and was hoping when you have time you might transfer her to me. I also sent two emails one regarding Jacob Jacoby, 31521808 and the other for William Sandt, 31523636 that I was hoping might be added to their bio section as they were Civil War Veterans in the 153rd Regiment out of Northampton County. Please let me know if you need these emails sent again. Thanks, Carol

Brutal Prineville Murder
Old Man’s Spinal Column Broken at Hands of Bartender
Bend, Or., May 22 – William Pugh, 69 years of age, died at Prineville last Tuesday of injuries inflicted by John F. Dell last Friday. About 2 o’clock last Friday, Pugh, who had been drinking, entered the Opera saloon, and, stepping behind the bar, asked for a cigar. Dell threw him bodily out of the door. Pugh fell on his back. Dell followed him, caught him by the legs and dashed his head and shoulders on the sidewalk several times, finally bending his body so far that Pugh’s head was thrust against his chest.
At an autopsy it was shown that the spinal column had been wreched apart between the sixth and seventh vertebrae, so that the spinal cord was plainly visible. The verdict of the coroner’s jury was that Pugh had met his death at the hands of John T. Dell, and recommended that Dell be bound over to the grand jury without bail.
