Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family history has long tugged at my heartstrings. It has also been a vehicle for meeting "cousins" and new friends as we assist and exchange data. Inevitably, errors occur so, please inform me of any you may discover on the info I have added (and I'm happy to place additional facts...THANK YOU IN ADVANCE! If I have inadvertently overlooked anyone, please know that I am sincerely appreciative of your input.) to this fantastic site directly from that memorial.

Will consider transfer of family members to "per Find A Grave guidelines "(Please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial transferred to you. Please, DO NOT post requests on my Bio page as it is very time consuming to search for those memorials and less accurate. Also include in your request your unique Contributor ID # which is displayed to the right of your member name on your profile page. Transfers: Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree."Transfer requests should be for direct relatives WITHIN FOUR GENERATIONS, this would be your Siblings, Parents, Grandparents, and Great-grandparents. EXPLAIN your Relationship in the request. Any non-direct relatives (Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, etc.) are Not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. BULK surname requests should not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.). I will ONLY TRANSFER management of memorials to immediate relatives as defined in the Find A Grave rules...this is their policy. Other requests WILL be ignored. AGAIN, PLEASE USE the "EDIT" and "SUGGEST A CORRECTION". Additional data should not be placed in the flower/token area of the memorial page. I also need an email address, or way to contact you when you send me requests and questions. Many Newbies are not making themselves familiar with site guidelines and sadly, some simply do not care. I'm also very capable of adding data so, please do not ask me to transfer and you'll transfer the memorial pg back to me after you've added more data. The guidelines also state to allow 30 days for updates. Patience is necessary as I have a life beyond this site. In the event of the same memorial listed twice on the same day, please refer to the MEMORIAL number. The lowest MEMORIAL # was the one added first, with the highest MEMORIAL # being the duplicate.

Virtual cemeteries are the way to "gather" your ancestors together. I respect all contributors of FAG and do expect the same from them. Also, please keep in mind we are contributing this very important data for future generations so they might continue the wonderful work that we are currently peforming. The focus is assisting others and remembering those who passed before us.

I'm honored to add those who have passed into their eternal life as they should never be forgotten. ALL of these wonderful memorials are NOT related to me as I have added others I "met" while doing research at cemeteries, libraries, or seeking data on the Internet. Feel free to visit and leave floral/tokens/messages. Heartfelt thanks also to my fab ancestors!

Here is a list of our (deceased) Fallen Gravers @ Memorial #33083506
you may wish to visit and leave a token for.

Ms. Davis,
Do you have access to the plot/lot info of those interred at Clear Lake? My 2xs Gr-Grandmother, Rosella Avery Ketchum is buried there. The death certificate for her husband, John H. Ketchum, states he is there also.
Can you help me confer this?
Please advise,
Dee Dee (Ketchum) Walsh (a.k.ak born2research)

RE: Marilyn Annis
Thank you for your response. I thought you might be a relative that might know, because the bio that was written seemed to have more feeling to it.

RE: Libia T.
I've trimmed Libia's photo as you suggested. Thanks for pointing out the policy. I'm not sure why I didn't see that. It seems odd that the manager of a memorial can accept or decline changes to data, but just anyone can add photos.
Is it appropriate to link Libia's memorial to her adoptive parents, or are only biological relationships linked?
Thanks for your help.

Marilyn J "Margo" Annis
I am researching my families genealogy and working on a distant cousin- William George Annis and found his Find a Grave memorial with the link to his wife: Marilyn J "Margo" Annis- memorial #130338045. I have been unable to locate their marriage date without her maiden name and wondered if you might have that information? The name "Margo" sounds more like a nickname,or am I wrong? I hate to leave them unmarried in my Family Tree. Can you help?
