Bio and Links
Bio Photo First, thanks to Frank & Charlene for their temporary management of our account while we considered our desire to continue our relationship with Find-a-Grave.

After years of active involvement, with many go-arounds with certain members who, to put it frankly, are rude and dishonest and like to play games, we have agreed that the benefits outweigh the idiocy. It seems while guidelines are set forth, some members either don't read and comprehend them, or perhaps think they don't apply to them.

Our years of setting up memorials and adding photos seem to now be seen as us "being in it only for the numbers." Be advised, if we wanted to be "in" something for the numbers, it certainly wouldn't be Find-a-Grave.

Please submit edits and transfer requests through the edit function. These are typically processed within 24 hours. Any requests left as messages will be ignored. Bio requests that come in via email will take longer. Lengthy emails where we are left to figure out what it is you are expecting us to do will be deleted.

Photos we have uploaded to memorials are 100% photos we have taken. You may use those for your own personal genealogical endeavors. Credit is appreciated if you do use those (common courtesy is all we ask).

To end, we would like to thank the many friends we have encountered over the years. There are some that we have connected with many times in many cemeteries and it has been fun getting out and locating your relatives' gravestones.

Alvin Reed
Thank you Dale & Patti for taking the time to figure that there was a problem with my photo request for Alvin Reed. Without your photo of this Alvin Reed's mother, step father and brother and stepbrother's grave, I would have been following the wrong Alvin Reed.
The Alvin L Reed (3nd Gr Gr uncle of my daughter) I have been researching is the son of John (born 1807) and Eleanor Powers (born 1806) Reed who was born 1839 in Maine and enlisted Oct 22, 1861 Dead River, Franklin, Maine age 22, Co L , Cav 1st Farmer, Single, Dark Complexion, Hazel Eyes, Brown Hair, 5 ft, 9.75 inches; 3 years mustered Augusta Nov 1, 1861 but was discharged for disability on May 12, 1862 in Washington, DC.
For some reason the paper trail lead me to have my Alvin Reed enlist again Oct 13, 1863 in New Portland, Somerset Maine as a substitute Co D, Cav DC, fair complexion, hazel eyes, farmer, brown hair, 5 ft 10 in; deserting April 22 1864---------
In my tree my Alvin Reed was married to Belle Esterbrooks but it has now been deleted as the mother of the Alvin that married Bella Esterbrooks was Lucy Ann who had been married to Harvey Reed as per her headstone in your picture --wrong Alvin Reed---------Huge Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now to figure out what happened to the Alvin L Reed in the family tree I am researching.............never-ending----Thank you! Kim Lovell rkclove
