REQUESTS FOR corrections, additional information, or transfers: PLEASE do so with the Suggest A Correction (SAC) link on the memorial for that person. (Memorials will have an 'Edit' tab on the upper right side of the memorial. Click on the 'Edit' tab, then click on a 'Suggest a correction' link on the Edit page.)

Memorial #44714078
I had requested a photo of Martha's tombstone, but the person who responded (Agent 99 (#47200437) said they searched the cemetery and could not locate her grave. I am wondering if you have any way of getting a photo posted to her memorial? Thank you.

I would like to have my grandfather's FindAGrave transferred to me. Please let me know what needs to be done to accommodate this. Is there an email address that I can contact you with?

RE: Mattie Pauline Stricklan Chastain
Hey Donna,
Again, thanks for responding.
Yes, I have a huge version of my father's HAMMONDs and STRICKLANDs. And then I also have my mother's MONEYs and JOHNSONs etc, etc. all in Do you have access to it? It is a great place to search and store and create versions of research.
Of course, each family tree is only as good, or I should say, as correct, as the records, and the verification of accuracy. But is a great starting place, and a good place to store possibilities. And it's easy to correct or remove people and records, if you discover an error.
If you don't mind, would you respond to me with my email:
I can write and do better in that format, and not in this messaging on FindAGrave.

Mattie Pauline Stricklan Chastain
Thanks for responding. Hope I didn't offend with my questions/concerns. I agree that all duplicates in FindAGrave need to be resolved. And indeed, it seems someone has acted accordingly. I now see that only #60197654 is posted for "Mattie Pauline", and now do not find duplicates for parents C.E. and Leola.
As I mentioned previously, we are related. You are I are 3rd cousins. It seems our Grt Grandfathers (mine- Elijah Phillip Strickland, yours - John W. Strickland) were brothers and sons of Andrew Jackson Strickland (181-1880). I notice that your Grt Grandfather John W., and our Grt Grt Grandfather Andrew J., both died in 1880, a few months apart. I grew up in Chattooga CO. GA. and live very near where Andrew J. and son Elijah Phillip and other Stricklands are buried. Been to those cemeteries many times searching for others. In fact there are several Strickland relatives who disagree about Andrew J's father. Some believe him to be Sion, and I currently have Reuben. SO the search is still in progress.

RE: Ernest Edwards Find A Grave Memorial# 17850003
Thank you or your assistant today. Yesterday Lois was being listed as both a child and sibling and I could not correct it. I just enter my mother and father into the inventory and started to make the connections of my mother and father families yesterday. Thank you greatly or the assistance. I will be requesting corrections a few at a time. I am new to this process so please feel free to question any possible mistakes.

Pearl Mae Cundiff Bowman
I just requested an edit for Pearl Mae Cundiff. Her mother was Mary Anis Rogers Cundiff, who married Taylor Cundiff on 13 Jan 1887 (source: Illinois Marriages, 1851-1900). Pearl was born the following August (but who's counting?). Mary Anis died 3 Mar 1890, and Taylor married Cora Bell Dunbar on 15 Apr 1891 (same source). Cora Bell was her step-mother, not her mother. Much appreciated.
