I'm in the process of researching my memorials. I try to get documentation for all the information I place on each memorial.
Disclaimer: I am not responsible for misinformation placed on the memorials I manage via "edits". I've tried to keep up and cannot. It's too time consuming trying to verify each edit.

Do not use my pictures without my permission. I will not give permission for them to be used on Ancestry dot com. You may not agree with this policy but it is mine to make.

Many thanks to all who have helped me with my memorials. A very big thank you to Find A Grave for this outstanding web site.

If you have additions or corrections for a memorial, please use the suggest a correction "edit tab', upper right on each memorial. I will not make additions I can not verify. Please do not leave "edits" below. Thank you.

From Find A Grave Q & A:
May I add a death certificate to a person's memorial page?
Death certificates may be added via the "Add a photo" button on the memorial page. Please select the option for "Other" in the "Type of photo:" to be added, as it is not a Grave, Person or Family photograph. NOTE: Death certificates do not necessarily contain completely accurate information about the deceased. There are often errors regarding the final burial location (as well as other data).

I have asked you nicely, I have asked you repeatedly to NOT post copies of the Death Certificates on my memorials, What is your unmannerly problem? Do you know what manners are? Do you have some sort of mental problem, that keeps you from the simple understanding of other peoples wishes and human decency? I know you can post copies of death certificates all over findagrave if you so choose, anyone can, as you know very well, that is not the point. How can I help you with your issues? I have a degree and I am always willing to help those in need...

Franklin and Lorina
Glad you wrote cause I spent all day researching the related families and found lots of amazing records. I began getting snags from ancestry so better give them a rest and continue another day.
I did find Elizabeth Worley married to Elihu Embree which I never knew.

Still need to look for marriage for Franklin and Lorina...and records where they lived early on. Research is never ending.

RE: Velton Haskins

I would need your email address to be able to send the .pdf file, as I can't attach such a file in this reply, so instead, I have saved it as a .jpeg file (picture) and added it to Mr. Haskin's memorial as a photo. Just drop me a line if/when you want me to delete the photo from the memorial and I'll gladly remove it.

Thanks for making the requested edits!

Best regards,

RE: Robert Daniel Love
Here's some of the story from what I can gather from relatives. Uncle Bert died all alone, no family or friends. Some people near him thought he had no relatives and tried to claim his home and possessions. Somehow, someway the authorities found a letter in his home from his sister, Nancy (Love) Pearson. They notified her. Nancy and other members of the family rushed down to Springfield from Greene Co., IN. In the house they found the place turned upside down, apparently some things were stolen and they found blood stains on furniture. They had the theory that Uncle Bert was murdered. However the perpetrators were never charged. From what I can gather Walter V. Love did not go there. Walter was living in Washington DC at the time.
My theory is, the perpetrators had one of them claim to be Walter V. Love and fudge the DC.That would show a bogus link to next of kin. Whatever happened their plot did not pan out. I say the DC here is purely bogus. If someone wanted to do some work I bet they could find a copy of a newspaper clipping on the story in the library.

Masters family
i just wanted to thank you for all the work you have put into Find A Grave and for all of the family members of mine that you have found and created. Isiah Masters was my great grandfather and I used to hear stories galore about him. I knew he was the one that had lost his arm in the Civil grandmother said it was at Gettysburg....was never certain, but was very happy to see you have it on his memorial. Plus all of the others....thank you so very much!

Hi, I just returned from Kansas City where I attended my Aunt Janie's (Mary Jane) funeral. Going thru all of her old photos etc. got me going on my family tree again. I was happy to find this web site and more then that, that you had already posted this most beautiful tribute to her. Thank you for taking the time to do the work you do, I turly appreciate it. Once I get a little better at this, I'll be able to add some photos too.
