Hi,Pam...Margretta Pierce was not mentioned on the plaque we filled the request for her husband with so we went back to search and found add'l plaque in another location. Hope it's ok. Keep up the good work on the memorials...Roberta

RE: Hannibal Pierce
We do know about the 'hidden' door and so we asked our daughter, a local attorney, to speak with Norton Management. Apparently there exists only the remains of one entire family beneath the building and no individual markers. Pierce was not the family so there must have been a problem that prevented transfer of the 40 to Woodlawn with the others and a plaque on Norton grounds had to be erected for them. Life and death can be a mystery. We also checked the record book at Woodlawn and went to the mentioned Flamingo Park location just to assure ourselves we had searched all avenues.Don't like to leave a family wondering if we can help it and Hannibal Pierce was an important man in his time.

Hannibal D Pierce
Hello, Pamela...In searching to fill your request for Hannibal D Pierce, we came across a picture of his little daughter Lillie. I will be happy to post this picture and fill in a bit of his biography on your site that we uncovered during our search. Please let me know if you are related to him. Best Wishes. PS. this proved to be one of the most interest quests we have given ourselves over to.

RE: Unresponsive Gravers
Hi again,

Just to give you some more answers; if you believe the member is deceased or truly no longer active on this site, you would send an e-mail to the Find A Grave "info" address, at this link in the FAQ's -

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?searchArg=fallen&page=listFaqs#158

Make sure you include the member's number and/or a link to their member page.

Once the admins determine that member is no longer active, they would take over maintaining the memorials.

This is also the same e-mail address you would request "Stewardship" (management) if you'd like to manage ALL of a member's memorials.

There have been a lot, and I mean many, many - updates and changes to the FAQ's in recent months - mostly due to Find A Grave's partnership with Ancestry and the new system for sending "Edits", but I invite you to re-read them. Mostly they make sense. :) And if they don't, feel free to leave me a message or to post your questions in the "General - Help" thread in the Forums. Members can answer you in the help thread but they cannot respond to anything in the Ask An Admin thread. (You'll get an answer much sooner in the Help thread.)

I hope this too helps.

Emily

Help with your Request for Transfer of another memorial
Hi there. I saw your post in the forums about requesting a transfer and getting no response and I thought I could help.

As per the Find A Grave rules (FAQ's), required transfers are for those relationships that are "direct, in-line, within 4 generations". That means, Siblings, Parents, Grandparents, Great-grandparents. And going the other direction - Your kids, Grandkids and Great-grandkids.

Your Aunt would not qualify as a "required" transfer.

Just FYI - All transfers are allowed but those that are not "direct, in-line, within the 4 gen rule" are not "required" but at the discretion of the memorial manager.

To request your transfer, you must use the Edit tab on the memorial (not leave a message on their message page) then click on the "Suggest Any Other..." option. Check the little box to send yourself a copy of this request. State that you'd like a transfer and you need to state your EXACT relationship (just stating that this is a family member is not what's required). Then click submit.

It's always a good idea to include whatever info you'd like to add to the memorial in case your request is not granted. At least the manager can then add the info to the memorial.

Once you send this, the manager has 30 days to respond (again, as per Find A Grave rules). If they don't respond after this 30 day period, you would forward your copy of the request to the Find A Grave e-mail address found in the FAQ's (it's Edit (a-t) Find A Grave dot com). (If the manager declines to transfer before the 30 day period is up, you do not have to wait to forward your request to the Edit e-mail address.)

Once you forward to Edit, you have to wait for the admins to make the decision. It can take days, weeks or even months; although, they do seem to be getting to their e-mails a little more quickly than in the past.

Put the memorial in a VC. The manager (or the admins) may not respond to you but may just make the additions/updates. Saving it in a VC makes the memorial easier to find and check on.

I hope this helps.

Regards,
Emily

Re: Abraham Leasure, Sr.
Pam, I sent you an article from another contributor via separate e-mail. It is the first time I've tried this so please let me know if you received it or not. It is from gnar73 and his research efforts of the Anston-Reese Family Tree and the Merriman-Leasure line. Hope this helps. Best, Brent

RE: Kenneth E Kazda
It is not a family member. I've been going through the applications for headstones for veterans in Ancestry.com and adding records or supplementing existing ones with basic info that I can find.
