I strive for Quality, not Quantity

Requests to other editors:

All Messages and requests to me should be civil and polite. No sarcasm please!

Please use the EDIT function on a memorial for all messages, requests, TRANSFERS, etc. concerning that memorial.

Before starting a new cemetery, be sure to check to make sure the cemetery does not already exist.

Biographical information and obituaries should not be included in a virtual flower.

If you know the places of birth and death, why don't you fill them in at the top of the memorial. It's not that hard. Go the extra mile!

Think outside the box.

Please let me know about any corrections or links. If you find any errors or incomplete birth and death dates in my postings, contact me through the EDIT-button at the right top of the memorial. I'd be happy to make the corrections, links and additions.

Please do not ask me to add unsubstantiated / unsourced claims that the person is related in some way to a famous person.

If you ask me to add info from the photo of a grave marker, especially an old one, please give me the exact dates, etc., that you want added, so that I am spared having to try to decipher the marker.

Transfer requests should be individual and specific and must be made by using the EDIT function on the memorial in question. If you are requesting a transfer based on relationship, please state that relationship. I am flexible on your connection to the person and will make transfers outside the guidelines at my discretion. I have been disappointed when I did make a transfer and the transferee did nothing to improve the memorial or even worse deletes what I have added.

In the case of competing requests for a transfer or I have have a connection to the person, I will use the guidelines.

Historian and genealogist.

I have been doing genealogy on both sides of the Atlantic for over 27 years. My work on Find A Grave is NOT a hobby, but a service to others.

I majored in history at Duke, did graduate work in history at the Univ. of South Carolina, graduated from the Univ. of Florida Law School and practiced law for 30 years, much of it in the land title industry. I have an EFM certificate from the School of Theology, University of the South.

Through my mother, I am a ninth generation member of the Weybright (sometimes spelled Waybright) Family in America, a member of the First Families of Ohio and a direct descendant of Capt. Martin Weybright III, of the Lancaster County (PA.) Militia. who is on the DAR patriots list and paradoxically was a member of the pacifist German Baptist Brethren (Church of the Brethren). His father, Martin II and grandparents, Martin I and Margaretha, had arrived in Philadelphia in 1730 from Germany aboard the ship Loyal Judith and settled in Lancaster.

My grandfather, W E Durr, M.D. practiced in Glencoe, Ohio, from after World War I until his death in 1947. In the course of his practice, he delivered many babies, including my mother and one of my brothers. I have over 1,300 of his Physician's Birth Records, but these are probably many more records that I do not have. I put these birth records into 4 spiral bound books and gave the original books to the Ohio Genealogical Society's Library in Mansfield, Ohio, gave one copy to the Genealogical Section of the Hutton Library in Barnesville, Ohio, and kept one copy for myself.

Through my great grandfather, Cornelius "Neal" Rice (1844-1933), I am a member of Civil War Families of Ohio. During Sherman's March to the Sea, he was captured at Irwin's Crossroads, Georgia, taken to the county jail in Sandersville and then to the county jail in Milledgeville, then the state capital of Georgia. He escaped from the jail and walked home to Greenville, Ohio.

Through my father, I am a first generation American and a dual citizen of the USA and the Republic of Ireland.

Names in my family tree are: Calvert, Varty, Moore, Durr. Rice, Burgan, Weybright or Waybright, Koontz, Fetter, Mehring and lots more.

Places in my tree are Stuart and Bradenton, Florida; Belmont, Darke, Miami, Montgomery, Holmes & Wayne counties, Ohio; Carroll County, Maryland; Lancaster, Somerset & Adams counties, Pennsylvania; Eastern Massachusetts; Counties Armagh, Antrim, Down, Dublin & Monaghan, Ireland; the West Riding of Yorkshire, England; Southern Germany, and more.

Denominations in my tree include Episcopal, Christian Science, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, Moravian, German Baptist Brethren (Church of the Brethren}, Roman Catholic, etc.

Places I've lived, worked or spent time in are Manatee, Alachua, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie & Indian River counties, Florida; Suffolk, Norfolk, Middlesex, Worcester & Plymouth counties, Massachusetts; Belmont, Darke, Montgomery & Erie counties, Ohio; Rutland County, Vermont; Chautauqua County, New York; Durham County, North Carolina; Richland & Sumter counties, South Carolina; Counties Armagh, Antrim, Down, Dublin & Monaghan, Ireland; London, England; etc.

Hazel Gladys [Weybright] Seaman Fuller
I was wondering if you have been able to find the gravesite of her grandfather William Lewis Seamans Sr. He was married to Martha J (Tunnel) Seamans Martin.

I have have this Williams parents listed as Thomas Seamans & Mary Ann Carder Seamans. But their memorials don't list William Lewis Seamans as a son. I have a photo of him but don't have a death location.

Mary Ann Carder Seamans is a decendent of two Mayflower passengers, so can see why I want to link William Lewis Seaman to his mother

Thanks

Your very welcome.

We also use Photo Shop to help with the very old headstones/tombs.

Have a great day

Obituary
I noticed that you added the obit for Vivian Eley to her memorial. I'd like to do the same for Earl. How do I do that?

Hi again Martin, Since Jack Scarff isn't related I was wondering if you would mind transferring this memorial to me. Thanks for your time in posting this memorial and for your consideration of transfer. Linda

Hi, I was just wondering your relationship to Jack "Joseph" Leroy Scarff. He was married to my Aunt Wilma Henderson Scarff and I never heard of his name as Joseph. Thanks Linda L.

Hills family
Last year I took a few photos for you of memorials for members of the Hills family who were buried in Newnham, Kent, UK. I was fulfilling another unrelated photo request in Doddington this morning (the next village along from Newnham - half a mile away) and found a marker for John (died 1897 aged 84) and Soloman Hills (died 1874 aged 71). I don't know how interested you are in tracing the Hills family or if indeed these two gentlemen are in fact related to the Hills family of Newnham but I did notice other names in common between the two small cemeteries. Please let me know if you would like any further information/photos etc. Best wishes, Paul

Hi! Regarding your photo request, can you please contact the cemetery and obtain the Section, Lot, and Grave Number information, and then post it to your request? Please also ask if there is a grave marker and add that information to your photo request and/or memorial. The Find A Grave FAQs state the photo requestor is responsible to provide this information.

Elmwood Cemetery: (708) 453-0273

This cemetery provides extremely limited assistance to photo volunteers with finding a grave's location. Last year I was able to fulfill almost 200 photo requests at Elmwood through this process. Because the lots in this cemetery are poorly marked, almost no one else ever photographs here. I have only had success here because I have spent literally weeks at a time to learn the intricacies of the layout of this cemetery.

Thank you for helping me to help you.
