Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please don't hesitate to suggest corrections, changes or additions! I will gladly transfer any memorials as well ..I would love to have ALL of them claimed by their families!

I believe that the marker is the final word. As an example: if Mr. Smith wanted William Smith on his marker he would have put it there. If he put Billy Smith, I prefer to not change the memorial. I would be happy to add William James Smith in the bio section if such a request is made. If I did change it to William, someone else might see the marker and enter a duplicate using Billy again.

It is much more interesting to have more than first-last-born-died on memorials. So, many, many thanks goes to 'klh' who researches and adds so much info to memorials. Kudos Karlene!

As so many others have posted, using the edit tab to request transfers and make edits is soooo much easier!

Mary Stark
Thank you for transferring Mrs. Stark's memorial to me. It means a great deal.

My husband and I just shipped off four boxes of childrens books to an after-school program in the still-recovering 9th Ward in New Orleans. I thought of her with every book.

Have a happy holiday season.

RE: James Wheeler
Thanks, I will keep checking in.Wish I was closer to Escanaba. I would love to be able to photograph markers there. No problem on the duplicate.

RE: William C Fowler
Thank you for the message! I hadn't heard about the dog tags but I looked it up online. I've sent his first cousin an email. Will let you know if they turn out to belong to him.

RE: William Rice
I appreciate what you are saying. It is never my intention to dictate to a Fine A Grave contributor what they should or shouldn't add or delete. I respect each contributor's decision as to what they add or delete. I make the edit suggestions and then leave it to the creator of the memorial to decide if they want to use it or not. I welcome any suggestions you might have for my memorials.
Thank you also for your work on Find A Grave.

You created a duplicate of a page I created in 2009. Since you have a photo, I transferred the page I created to you. In the future, when you do a search, please do a general search as stated in F.A.G. guidelines...sometimes a page exists without a Cemetery listing because it wasn't available at the time.

Here is the rule...

If you are adding a memorial for someone who has recently passed or who does not have a physical grave or memorial marker in a cemetery (perhaps their ashes were scattered), please do a general search on Find A Grave (do not enter a location) to see if a memorial has already been created for that person. If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, instead of creating a duplicate memorial use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. Never deliberately create a duplicate memorial.

RE: Estelle McNeal
Sorry not for sure since the death certificate doesn't say. If I had to guess it would be Bethel since it seems that's where her Estelle's mother is buried and Estelle's death certificate says she's buried there. Next trip up I'll have to stop by and check it out that's about the only cemetery that I haven't been to yet.

RE: Marjorie
Sadie was my aunt, the wife of my oldest uncle, Daniel Hubert. Margie, aka marjorie and Marge, was another aunt. Valerie was another aunt. I will continue to maintain their memorials.
I have researched my family since 1964 and believe I know the family history better than anyone on Find A Grave.

Some days great things happen! I think you memorialized my great-great grandfather!! It all fits! Dates are a tiny bit off but the place makes sense. I put in a request for a photo. I hope he has a stone!!!
