FindAGrave, as I understand it, is a graves registration database. That means that memorials listed as 'Burial Unknown' should not be on the site longer than 30 days past D.O.D. The site isn't called 'Find the Name of a Deceased Person.' It seems that some are confused about these things. If you are one of those, see the FAQ's. |
If I have made a demonstrable error of fact on any of my postings, please let me know in order that I may correct it. As many of the stones are old, worn, and weathered, I have done my best to interpret the information thereon. If I'm not reasonably sure of the information, I won't post it.
With very few exceptions, all my interment data comes from photographs of the individual's gravestone done by me in the field.
If you see an image you would like a copy of, let me know and I'll be happy to provide one. There is but one proviso however. Any image provided must be for your personal use only and is not to be uploaded to another web site.
On the subject of 'Relationship Links' and 'S.A.C.'s', please read the following carefully. And use the correct procedure!!! I will be happy to make links and corrections.
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY:
Please double check your suggestions for accuracy before submitting them. Hopefully you will have a reasonably reliable source for the information, AND HAVE PROVIDED IT!!! BTW, most web sites are not sources. For the most part, they contain information somebody uploaded. The source is where the information came from. For example, if someone on a web site claims to quote from the New York Times, the NYT is the source (along with date of publication, edition, page number, etc.), NOT THE WEB PAGE. If it helps, try thinking of this as if you were writing a term paper. (Does either 'MLA' or 'CMS' sound familiar???)
I have been deluged recently with suggestions and requests to make relationship links which simply cannot be possible. When you ask me to link a child to parents who would have been 3 years old at the time of the child's birth, something's very wrong somewhere. Of course, if you wish, I can easily post anything you submit and attach your name to the erroneous information. There is enough bad data on the internet as it is and I really don't want to be adding to the problem. But if you insist... Please keep in mind, just because it's on the internet doesn't make it true. Since FindAGrave rules prohibit the use of external links (they can go dead or change over time), I won't create them.
Please do not ask for transfers solely for the purpose of adding biographies and making links. If you submit information from a reliable source, a source you have provided, I will add it. Keep in mind you can always create a virtual cemetery.

|Robert Champlin||RE: Walter Champlin|
The reason I asked to know what you were talking about has to do with the way messages come from Find-A-Grave. Unlike responding to a regular email where you can see an entire series of back and forth emails, all I received from you was a question with no specific subject or reference to anything that I'd said previously - so I really had absolutely no idea what you were talking about.
So now I know that it has to do with the duplicate memorials for Walter Champlin.
My intention was only to be helpful and to point out a possible duplication. I wasn't in the cemetery myself so I cannot say with absolute certainty that there was a duplicate on line memorial, or if there were in fact two almost identical stones for different Walter Champlin's. I've done enough Champlin genealogy to know that the latter is certainly possible.
|Robert Champlin||RE: Walter Champlin|
In the same spirit, please be more specific about your request for corrections. What are you talking about?

Hi, Curious as to why you have one of my Randolph family markers pictured on the above memorial of mine. No relationship to each other to my knowledge. Kindly remove the picture from the above memorial.
|Rebecca Herman||RE: David Hafer|
David Hafer, my 3x great-grandfather is buried in the Lutheran church cemetery in St. Thomas PA. Not in the town cemetery, as you have it. I was there in person, saw the stone, photographed it, etc.
I would like to have management of this memorial. Thank you for your consideration.
|Robert Champlin||Walter Champlin|
You have created two memorials for Walter Champlin who is buried in the Brook Avenue Presbyterian Church Cemetery at Plainfield, New Jersey - one for a Walter K. Champlin and the other for a Walter N. Champlin.
These two gravestones belong to the same person. The original stone calls him Walter N. Champlin and the more recent stone, which also contains the names of his wife, a daughter, a son and a daughter-in-law, calls him Walter K. Champlin
His real name was Walter King Champlin, son of Nathan Champlin and Lydia Woodward. He was born at Norwich, Connecticut on March 29, 1813 so the inscription on the older grave that says Walter N. died in his 43rd year is correct, as to his age.
Interestingly, Walter's name appears on a third gravestone in the Oak Street Cemetery in Norwich which I found on May 6, 1998.
I have a bio I was going to post and link him too his family

Howard Hoagland and Catherine Y. Hixon Hoagland.
First, Thank you for all the great work you have done for this sight. I am a Hixson -Hixon family researcher. Just a note to let anyone know that the persons noted in these two memorials are featured in a Dajuerreotype photo and case on ebay at this moment. (99.00). I am on a fixed income and cannot afford such a cost, but someone out there researching this family probably can.
(item listed under 'Hixson'). Once again, Thank you for your work.
