Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have put a great deal of time into creating many of these memorials. I am continually researching the memorials that I've created and often find more things to add. If you have some information you'd like added, let me know.

Please read the Find a Grave policy to see whether your request qualifies a transfer. If it falls within the guidelines, then, please use the EDIT button on the top right of the person's memorial page when you want to request a transfer since it provides me with the link to that memorial.

Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) will not be transferred. The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

I am more than happy to have anyone add their personal photos of people on a memorial. However, I discourage adding death certificates and genealogy material in printed form out of a book.

RE: Photo request
Thank you so much. My husband is getting ready to question his cousin as to why nothing has been done after all of this time ... he is not a happy camper!!
I can't express my gratitude enough for your returning and checking for me.

Noel Bixler
I have a picture of a little boy on a pony. On the back it says, "Noel Bixler, son of Alice and Earl."
The picture was handed down to my husband by his grandmother and her parents. They lived in Oklahoma. Their name was Coultrup. I believe the Bixlers and Coultrups were friends or neighbors. This was in the early 1900s.
Are you related to the Bixlers?

memorial #148753236
Thank you for the request to add the inscription for this memorial. I respectfully decline at this time. When a picture of the memorial is posted then I will most certainly add the inscription. I will add the note in the bio part of the memorial instead.

Donna, thanks for all your great work with this cemetery. It is about 40 minutes from me and I will go within the next week or so and photograph as much as possible, possibly on a comprehensive level. Are you local? Jim

Zephaniah Preston
Received your request to add a transcription for Zephaniah i.e.: 1 year 10 mos. 4 days. Presently there is no photo of his headstone, I understand that some stones in this family plot are face down. Recently got photos of his parents and uncles stones. I only add transcriptions if there is photo of the stone or the cemetery record. Holding request pending. Bill Preston for the family.
