Alter Ego
I just read the postings below this. I am not an alter ego. There are some strange folks on here. I would quit now but there does not seem to be a way to do that. Leave me out of the drama.

RE: limit photo requests
May I ask who you are?

I am not sure what this woman is up to. I have been creating hundreds of memorials each week based on photos I took. I have two friends who check my postings. When I neglect to post the picture they request a photo to remind me to add it because they know I only post memorials where I have photos. They also request edits when I omit a date or make a mistake. I am not sure what policy this violates or how it affects people like Natasha. I was not aware that there was any big competition to build up numbers because it is after all all volunteer work. From reading the posting here on your page it sounds like some people think they have done some really deep detective work. I can assure you that there are no fictitious people building up my numbers. As a matter of fact I think my days on Find a Grave are pretty much done. I would appreciate it if you would delete all postings from your page which contain accusations using my name. Thank you.

I believe this is just an alter-ego for Bill Hilton (#47729177). It appears what he has been doing is creating a bunch of new IDs, using those to "request" photos at this particular cemetery so he can drive up his volunteer photo numbers.
If you pay attention to what has been happening, Bill Hilton created all these memorials. He then uses a different account to request the photos. The photos are then all claimed and fulfilled within just a few minutes of the photo request. I have been keeping a list of all these (probably bogus) accounts.

Thank you for the additional picture of Gashes Creek Baptist Church sign and adding it to Sandy Taylor's site. I did enjoy reading it.
