Bio Photo **Do to sickness in our family and the hours we work we are not on find a grave every day. Please be patient and we will get to corrections and requests as soon as we can. Thank you for your understanding.**

**Transfer request. Please do not request transfers with a public message on our profile. Please use the edit button on each memorial to request a transfer and please be sure to include how you are related to the person. We will make transfers as set forth in the find a grave rules for transfers. **

In 2006 Mark found the Find A Grave web site when he was searching for some Civil War history in our area. We love helping people find their loved ones and try to add as much information as we can find. We have went searching in the rain, snow, heat, and wind (we like it the least).

After many hours of research we determined that the only way to get good quality, readable photos that would verify the information people wanted and not harm the stones in any way was to use plan water and a very soft brush or to do rubbings of the stones. We have now started retaking some of our first photos that we do not feel were as good as they could be when we get to those cemeteries. We find it very disturbing when we see other volunteers that have put powder, shaving cream and chalk on the older stones and they are deteriorating as it has a chemical reaction with the acid in our rain.

We have met many people we will cherish forever, saw places we would have never seen and experienced adventures we will never forget. We hope to continue for many years and have many more adventures. This past year has been different since I started back to work after being off for 2 years. The summer was so hot and Mark fights skin cancer so we have not gotten to take as many photos as we would like. I've been adding memorials for people in Christian County as that is my home and I have many records for them.

If a family member of any memorial that we have entered would like to take over the ownership of that memorial page please contact us and we discuss transfer of ownership. Do to several requests from people that are not actually related and collecting "surnames" if you are not within 5 generations we may not transfer. We will add "documented" information only to a memorial. Just because you say they need to be linked is not documentation. Please provide obit, death or birth certificates when requesting information be added. If we have entered any information that is incorrect please contact us for a correction. We are here to help people and keep the information as accurate as possible.

RE: John Franklin Davis Jr.
I understand now what kind of people you are and I hope many people see your reply to my message. My husband would not want to be associated with you or yours in any way.

You posted biological information in a flower tribute on Mary Ann Wall's memorial. It is against Findagrave Rules to put in biograhical or genological information on a flower.

Would you kindly remove the info posted in your flower on Mary Ann's memorial no. 75741200

Thank you.

Why is my husband listed as someone else's spouse?
My name is Dixie Davis and my husbend John Franklin Davis Jr. Is listed as being married to his ex-wife at the time of his death. This is incorrect. He is my husband at the time of his death and years before that. I am his only widow as he was not a bigamist. I am the only person with the privilidge of burial with him in the national cemetery in Springfield, Mo. This is a hurtful error as our family have seen the "find a grave" entry for John and found him listed as his ex-wife's husband and myself as a second wife in the third paragraph down the page. He is also listed as being married to his ex-wife's obituary. Do you not care that your records are accurate? I assure my husband John would care if he could speak for himself. I have our marriage license as proof of what I say. I suggest you ask whomever provided this missinformation for proof. You should know better than to indulge someone's personal issues. My stepson should have gotten over his parents devorce years ago!

Have you done research for this family? I am related farther back in time. Wilmer was the husband of my 2nd cousin.
