Requests to other editors:
All Messages and requests to me should be civil and polite. No sarcasm please!
Please use the EDIT function on a memorial for all messages, requests, etc. concerning that memorial.
Before starting a new cemetery, be sure to check to make sure the cemetery does not already exist.
Biographical information and obituaries should not be included in a virtual flower.
If you know the places of birth and death, why don't you fill them in at the top of the memorial. It's not that hard. Go the extra mile!
Think outside the box.
Please let me know about any corrections or links. If you find any errors or incomplete birth and death dates in my postings, contact me through the EDIT-button at the right top of the memorial. I'd be happy to make the corrections, links and additions.
Please do not ask me to add unsubstantiated / unsourced claims that the person is related in some way to a famous person.
If you ask me to add info from the photo of a grave marker, especially an old one, please give me the exact dates, etc., that you want added, so that I am spared having to try to decipher the marker.
Transfer requests should be individual and specific. If you are requesting a transfer based on relationship, please state that relationship. I am flexible on your connection to the person and will make transfers outside the guidelines at my discretion. I have been disappointed when I did make a transfer and the transferee did nothing to improve the memorial or even worse deletes what I have added.
In the case of competing requests for a transfer or I have have a connection to the person, I will use the guidelines.

Historian and genealogist.
I have been doing genealogy on both sides of the Atlantic for over 27 years. My work on Find A Grave is NOT a hobby, but a service to others.
I majored in history at Duke, did graduate work in history at the Univ. of South Carolina, graduated from the Univ. of Florida Law School and practiced law for 30 years, much of it in the land title industry. I have an EFM certificate from the School of Theology, University of the South.
Through my mother, I am a ninth generation member of the Weybright (sometimes spelled Waybright) Family in America, a member of the First Families of Ohio and a direct descendant of Capt. Martin Weybright III, of the Lancaster County (PA.) Militia. who is on the DAR patriots list and paradoxically was a member of the pacifist German Baptist Brethren (Church of the Brethren). His father, Martin II and grandparents, Martin I and Margaretha, had arrived in Philadelphia in 1730 from Germany aboard the ship Loyal Judith and settled in Lancaster.
My grandfather, W E Durr, M.D. practiced in Glencoe, Ohio, from after World War I until his death in 1947. In the course of his practice, he delivered many babies, including my mother and one of my brothers. I have over 1,300 of his Physician's Birth Records, but my records are incomplete. I put theses birth records into 4 spiral bound books and gave the original books to the Ohio Genealogical Society's Library in Mansfield, Ohio, gave one copy to the Genealogical Section of the Hutton Library in Barnesville, Ohio, and kept one copy for myself.
Through my great grandfather, Cornelius "Neal" Rice (1844-1933), I am a member of Civil War Families of Ohio. During Sherman's March to the Sea, he was captured at Irwin's Crossroads, Georgia, taken to the county jail in Sandersville and then to the county jail in Milledgeville, then the state capital of Georgias. He escaped from the jail and walked home to Greenville, Ohio.
Through my father, I am a first generation American and a dual citizen of the USA and the Republic of Ireland.
Names in my family tree are: Calvert, Varty, Moore, Durr. Rice, Burgan, Weybright or Waybright, Koontz, Fetter, Mehring and lots more.
Places in my tree are Stuart and Bradenton, Florida; Belmont, Darke, Miami, Montgomery, Holmes & Wayne counties, Ohio; Carroll County, Maryland; Lancaster, Somerset & Adams counties, Pennsylvania; Eastern Massachusetts; Counties Armagh, Antrim, Down, Dublin & Monaghan, Ireland; the West Riding of Yorkshire, England; Southern Germany, and more.
Denominations in my tree include Episcopal, Christian Science, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, Moravian, German Baptist Brethren (Church of the Brethren}, Roman Catholic, etc.
Places I've lived, worked or spent time in are Manatee, Alachua, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie & Indian River counties, Florida; Suffolk, Norfolk, Middlesex, Worcester & Plymouth counties, Massachusetts; Belmont, Darke, Montgomery & Erie counties, Ohio; Rutland County, Vermont; Chautauqua County, New York; Durham County, North Carolina; Richland & Sumter counties, South Carolina; Counties Armagh, Antrim, Down, Dublin & Monaghan, Ireland; London, England; etc.

|Barbara Ardis Post Coker||RE: McElveen graves in Sumter Cemetery|
I loved the McElveen family. Mayor Bubba used to call me "A true daughter of Sumter." What a great heart he had. We loved him dearly!
|Gary Snowberger||Ralph Parker|
I thought too he should be buried with his father and wife, but you know it did not say, anyway he is in that cemetery now.
Thank you ever so much,
|Star Kline||George Panagakos|
Thank you so much for visiting my uncle's memorial and for leaving a token. I appreciate your time and your kindness.

Hi! I posted the photos for John & Muriel Dickson.
David D. Dickson, Jan 30, 1883 - Oct 10, 1946
Elizabeth S. Dickson, May 2, 1889 - May 10, 1955
Archie Dickson, Aug 8, 1885 - May 2, 1960
Charles Finley, Jun 25, 1894 - Feb 15, 1953
Edith K. Finley, Jun 16, 1892 - Oct 6, 1987
I do not know if the Finley's were part of your research. All of these graves are close together. If you create memorials and add photo requests I will post photos for you.
We owe a HUGE thanks to Bryan Baker the Funeral Director and Manager for providing the grave locations. Please send him a thank you card at:
Chapel Hill Memorial Park & Funeral Home
112 North Galena Avenue
Dixon, Illinois 61021
You would not have any of the information here or photos posted without his help.

|Barbara Wolf||RE: Margaret Jane|
You are very welcome. She was an interesting woman. I met her at a mother-daughter luncheon. Barb
|Cheri Hudson Passey||Name Change Request|
Name on Find A Grave is correct.
|Cheri Hudson Passey||Linking to Father|
I received your message requesting a link between a father and daughter. This has not been done due to family circumstances. This is my direct family line. I feel that maybe now is the time that I can go ahead and link them. Enough time has passed. Do you have an interest in the Early or Baker family's?

|Barbara Ardis Post Coker||RE: McFaddin Moise|
As always, it is my privilege to be of service in this way.
Thanks for doing everything so quickly! I get irritated when I read on forums that volunteers with many memorials take so long to add information, the ones I've contacted do things the fastest!!
