I have been adding some cemetery records/photos. If anyone requests management over a memorial or has corrections, please use the edit on the memorials. I have taken photos of several cemeteries and it makes granting your request so much easier if you USE THE EDIT TAB.
The Edit tab is located on the top right on the memorial.

On some of the memorials, extra information has been added. Most of this information comes from FHL, Ancestry, Rootsweb, and sometimes FAG members. Mistakes can be made in spellings, tombstone readings,and in the transcription of documents on websites, etc. It is best to order or view the original records to verify all information. Never take anything as fact until it is verified with the original documents.

I feel the NAME PORTION on the memorials should read like the tombstone. This keeps the cemetery tombstone readings as they are in the cemetery. It also keeps the burials in the cemetery accurate.

Please remember the tombstone INSCRIPTIONS WERE CHOSEN by your ancestors.....if they wanted John Joseph Albert Smith on the tombstone they would have put it there...instead of John J. Smith. So....Please don't ask me to change a middle initial to a name on the name section, or ask me to switch a first name with a middle name. If you want to submit additional name suggestions/changes, I will be happy to add it to the biographical section for others to consider. I have taken this approach, because I have run into problems with contributors, for example: saying the middle initial of "R" stands for Richard and then someone else saying..."No, It is Robert" and then someone else saying it is "Reid" after his mother's maiden name. I feel it is safer to leave it as "R". The name portion on the memorials will remain reading like the tombstone.
I will add maiden names with a source to the name portion. Please provide a source.

Please state your relationship when requesting transfers. I follow FAG Guidelines on Transfers. I won't do mass transfers on a surname to researchers on surname project.

Barlow Chowning Wilborn
Barlow Chowning Wilborn was my maternal grandfather, he was a brother to Beverly Carr Wilborn, or Uncle Bev as my mother called him.
They were the children of William H. Wilborn and Mary Heard Wilborn, his second wife, the first being her sister Margaret Heard. Barlow married Mary Jane "Molly J" Holman and they had a large family. Barlow died in 1935 in Clay County, Tennessee, before they created the Dale Hollow Resivoir. If you wish extended information, please contact me at my e-mail address. I have quite a bit of information on the Heard/Holman/Wilborn families. Best regards, I guess this makes us some sort of cousin. charles patrick Keefe.

Thank you for the info.

I thought there might be a chance of that so that's one reason I type things as they were printed. I only correct obvious typos, maybe add a comma for clarity, since in those days, they put out so many editions, things were often rushed.

But things like that? I leave as is.

There is a Dallas IL and I think a Paris IL so, it makes sense.

RE: Maiden name request for memorial 95374845 Abigail Ayers
The only info I have on Abigail Ayers was taken from the gravestone. She is not part of my genealogy.

Sorry about that,

Earl Munday

Thank you for the picture. He is my great great grandfather as well. His daughter Edna Mason Oddy was my great grandmother with whom I was very close. Seeing the picture was an unexpected delight!
