Bio and Links
Bio Photo "The country newspaper is truly a family record. It proclaims your marriage, it announces the birth of your children, it gives the obituary notice of a loved one of your family. It not only gives your family record, but the family record of your neighbors. Many do not realize the benefit their home paper is to them."
The Newton County News August 14, 1890

My count is unbalanced because I maintain many memorials for several contributors that are no longer on Find a Grave.

REGARDING TRANSFERS

Elaine Orr
Stemmons in Carthage
Thanks so much for the link to the Moses Hunter article. I inherited an old copy of that from Wilma (Coffield) Baker, who died in 2012. I may steal some from your nicely typed version. When I saw that article it didn't click that he was the man who married Nancy Hickman. I'm descended from her sister Artemissa. Nancy does not have a great reputation with "us" because she stole 40 acres of MO land meant for Artemissa Hickman Reynolds.

I'm historian for the Orr Reunion Association that meets in Mt. Vernon each summer. Many Carthage Campbells come. I added a bio and photo for James Stemmons. I've been adding photos and bios to ancestry.com and Find A Grave. I go in spurts. Would you mind sending me an email at elaineorr55@yahoo.com? I have some materials that may interest you.

I am not a direct descent and am happy to transfer the memorial so you can enhance it with interesting information. My connection is through his second wife (HICKMAN). And yes, I know we have connected in the past (you may have transferred management of a memorial to me or supplied me with additional information). YOUR MEMORIALS ARE WONDERFULLY WELL DONE!! Thank you for all your researching and hard work.

RE: Gerblady
I hope Findagrave Admins get her to tow the line. I have a couple more contributor names to add to that list too that need toning down. Those other people don't contribute to their memorials either - they just add to their numbers! Like I say on my page - be a contributor not just a manager. Of course, I have a lot of work to do on all my memorials especially when my cousin had over 4000, but when it comes to penny-ante stuff like periods after initials some people need to lighten up:)

Love your comment about this woman! She apparently has no life and taunts others about errors. You are so right...clean up your own backyard before you go after the neighbor's!

RE: GerbLady
Thanks. I am in Australia and over here we have a very low tolerance for people like her. Clearly fails to grasp the underlying principals of what the site is trying to achieve, especially when it comes to genealogy and preservation of historic data and memorials.
