Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm retired from the U.S. Air Force. I've walked a lot of cemeteries and taken many photos in Michigan, Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, Ontario, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont and Washington State. I've also transcribed cemeteries in these states and others to include California without taking any photos.


My photos are for public use and permission to use them are not needed. If anyone would like to take control of any memorial I manage, please let me know. I'll transfer immediately. I don't like to post long obituaries so if you have an obituary you want posted, let me know and I'll be glad to transfer management of that memorial to you. If you do send obituaries and they don't get posted ASAP, please take note that I will get to them when I can. They will not be my first priority unless you have cleared this with me in advance. I definitely will not post a biography so please don't ask me to.


I try to honor correction requests same day as received, however, I'm on the road about 5 months out of the year and internet connection is not always available. Please be patient and I will get to them as soon as I can.


Don't place a Correction Notice in my file and send me an email the same day reminding me that I have "pending edits in my Find A Grave account". That's the best way for you to get ignored. Also, if you send me correction edits and have your messages disabled and don't leave an email address, don't expect me to answer you or make the correction. I'm guessing that you don't want to communicate and that's fine. Once in a while I need to ask questions.


This is for Find A Grave contributor Spartan, #48880054:

I hope you are able to read this. I was going to flat out ignore you because I have questions about an edit you sent me and you have your messages disabled and didn't leave an email address. But, since you have only been a contributor for a month, I'm writing it here in hopes that you read it. Your edit states that I have Josephine Butterfield married to Carl N. Butterfield and you ask the question, "When did they marry?" I checked my memorial and found that I don't have her married to anyone! Carl N. Butterfield is her son. In the future you will be ignored. If you don't want other contributors to communicate with you, that's fine but will hard to do business with.


December 22, 2015.

I received email from Spartan, #48880054 with the following message: Frank, if you are (name), born (date) in (city, county and state)? If you are, you may contact me at (email address). Needless to say he is still being ignored. The name he mentioned is not me. He called me by my first name and then asked me if I was someone else. Strange? I have 16 edits from him and they are will be ignored until I can communicate with him.


December 30, 2015:

I received another edit today that I have questions about. The contributor, upnorth, 46868114, has messages disabled and no email address. Another one to ignore.


January 31, 2016

I just completed posting a very, very, very long obituary that I was requested to do on August 31, 2015. I've been putting it off because people don't read my profile statement that I don't like posting long obituaries. In the future, if you have a very, very, very long obituary you want posted, please consider asking for a transfer of the memorial and post it yourself.

Photo Removal
Please delete the photo you posted on Find A Grave #73086782, for Jack Rust.
There were already two headstone pictures posted.
This memorial is for a relative of mine and I am wanting to add photos of this person and need the space. Thank you for taking the photo. It is very nice but I had already added one of my own and another person added one also, which I am asking them to delete.

RE: John Conde, #114051386
Hi, Frank,

I just sent you an edit that would add a marriage date to your memorial for Sarah Conde, # 114051473. I have a marriage date on my memorial for his first wife. That should do it. The order of his wives was the only thing I saw that was incorrect, and, with the dates, they should sort properly.

If that doesn't work, if you remove your link from Sarah to John, I will link him to her, so that both of his spouses are listed on his memorial, rather than on the memorials for the ladies. That should really do the trick.

If you'd like John back, that's fine. Getting the family linked together is all that I care about.

Thank you, again.

And thank you for your work on find-a-grave. I really appreciate the time and effort you have put into this site. I know you have helped a lot of folks find their family members.

Take care.

Thank you so much, Frank, and best of luck in your travels. Stay cool this summer. The heat is horrific here in the south.

Duplicate memorial
The memory for Barney W. Davis you created, here: a duplicate. This is one of my great grandfathers, and I created his memorial a year earlier, here:

Please remove your memorial (but thank you for caring enough to create it in the first place.)

This memorial for Ethel Davis is also a duplicate:

Thank you very much.
