Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been able to visit my ancestor's grave that someone had posted. I probably will never get to visit in person, so I appreciate that "proxy" visit you provided.

On my memorials, I include the parents' names and place of birth if I can find them, as it certainly can help knowing which "John/Jane Doe" it is. I also like to add a title such as "Rev." or "Dr." to a memorial if appropriate, as it can save time in doing a search with 45 names all the same, in same state. I see some with titles on the tombstone, yet it is not entered with the name (perhaps the photo was added later...is a guess.)

I honor veterans (all wars) with a flag, or floral tribute, especially if they don't have one.

I welcome information or a correction to a memorial. I usually don't edit or check to be sure it is accurate, nor do I act as judge and jury over whether to add it. Check it if you doubt it. On memorials I contribute, I try to check the state and other records to assure it is accurate, but still I make mistakes. Use the white Edit tab at right top of the memorial. I will transfer a memorial if you are a relative, but I'd expect you to transfer if someone else asks you and they are closer kin.

My Family names I research: Vance/Sinclair, Yarbrough/Ellis/Young, Montgomery/Posey, Barnett/ Reynolds; Yandell/Sparks, Lee/Durham, Ward, Powell/Weaver.

THANKS:
With the "new edit" method, I don't always write a 'thank-you' nor do I expect one. We all have plenty to do to keep up. BUT, be assured that I do APPRECIATE any addition/correction, or PHOTO REQUEST you fulfill for me. Please accept this as my thanks for your efforts.

RE: Emery Mills Cem. photos
It was absolutely my pleasure. I help take care of cemeteries in Acton and Shapleigh, and this one is now on my radar. It is in desperate need of some TLC. I hope to get back and clean it up, stones and all. It looked like many stones had epitaphs and I will try to get them, and better photos, onto Find A Grave one of these days.

Thank you for the info you sent as a suggestion for his bio. I would like to clarify a couple of things.

You said his parents were in HH? Not sure what you mean? Also, I read your message as Oliver and his wife Carrie had 6 children, is that correct? Just want to be sure I have your facts listed correctly on the bio.

Thanks again for the info,
Diane

Transfer Requst 67125509 - Rev. Jacob Griffin
Hello!

First, thank you for the wonderful memorial to Rev. Jacob Griffin, my husband's fourth great grandfather. I have worked on this family since 1997 and can add a lot of detail, as well as locations of the his children's graves, to add to the site.

I was hoping you'd consider transferring his site to me so I could update the information easily.

Thank you so much for your time!

I have connected Jonathan to his mother and also suggested her birth date to the creator of her memorial. The information which I have for him comes from the book Searsport Sea Captains, pg. 161. Thanks Ken Tyler, Oostburg WI
