I have been fascinated with cemeteries as long as I can remember.
I try to put in the information as it is on the headstone, but that is not always correct/complete, so I am always happy to make corrections and add links when asked. Accuracy is important when using Find-A-Grave as a genealogy tool.
You have my permission to use my pictures for your genealogy research, but please reference the Find-A-Grave Memorial number.
If I have put in a memorial of one of your family members and you would like to take over the maintenance of it, please use the "Suggest a Correction" link and put your Find-A-Grave Member number in the request.
Also please specify your relationship when requesting transfers. I am no longer transfering outside the Find-A-Grave guidelines. If the relationship is not specified, the request will probably be ignored.
Find-A-Grave Policy on Transfers
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer.
I've been waiting just as long to have Albert R. Marley connected to his parents. Father Jessie Simeon Marley Find A Grave# 40682764 and Lida (Jacobs) Marley Find A Grave# 21240846. What is the problem?
What do I need to do to have this problem remedied?
George Richard Gandy Hi Lance, there are two pages for George Richard Gandy #140970947 & #26059633. Would you combine your photos and info into the one #140970947? It would be so helpful to us searchers.
24722109 I am trying to read the headstone of Lillie M and Ellis J Ratliff. I have included the Find-A-Grave locator for Lillie in the title.
I am trying to link family together in your project and have located the headstone of the father 'John Wesley Ratliff (13470169)' in the Fairmount Cemetery in Denver.
John Wesley Ratliff is the son of Thomas Boswell and Sarah A Henderson Ratliff and after getting married in 1855 moved his growing family to Colorado while the remainder of his siblings moved to Missouri.
If possible, can you email me a high resolution images of the headstones you have uploaded for my records.
I sent some information to you in February 1914 regarding Deacon Leonard Merchant. Since that time, I have learned a bit more about the family.
Leonard,a farmer, and his wife, Priscilla, along with their two children, Joseph and Julia, left Vermont to settle in Kansas in 1854 or 1855. According to a 4 June 1855 newspaper, Joseph died, at age 9, aboard the riverboat, Sultan, near Kansas City. According to the 1857 Kansas Territorial census, the family lived in Lecompton, Douglas County.
Leonard's mother, Prudence, apparently moved from Vermont to Lecompton after the death of her husband, Joseph, in 1856. She died in Lecompton Township on 29 August 1859.
I plan to to take a day trip to Lecompton --about an hour drive from my home in Overland Park -- sometime later this week. I will be visiting a couple of museums and cemeteries in an attempt to discover more about the family.
Please pass this along to Dr. Leonard Merchant in California if you are able.

Would you like a few more memorials transferred TO YOU. I have finished updating a lot of Colorado memorials - (Please read my profile page). I can transfer several hundred of these to you because your images are on most of them. I am considering transferring ALMOST all the RAMAH Cemetery memorials to you. I will be retaining management of my maternal grandmother and perhaps one or two more RAMAH cemetery memorials while I have no interest in the remainder of the memorials now that I have finished updating them. Please advise. All the best to you and yours.
