"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." |

My count is unbalanced because I maintain all the memorials of my close friend and genealogy associate Bill Boggess that died on March 4, 2015. Please visit his pages and for all of his genealogy research, which is quite extensive and leave a flower. He would love that.
I also maintain numerous memorials for several contributors that are no longer on Find a Grave.
All transfers will be done on an individual basis. Please state your relationship/or reason for requesting the transfer and be sure to include your member number.
PLEASE USE THE VIRTUAL CEMETERY FEATURE TO GROUP YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS TOGETHER. NOT ALL CAN BE TRANSFERRED CONSIDERING THERE IS A POSSIBILITY SO MANY PEOPLE CAN BE RELATED IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.
LINKS, TRANSFERS & INFORMATION LEFT ON THE BOARD are very time consuming to search for those memorials and less accurate.
To insure accuracy. . .
PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB on the upper right side of the memorials, then choose the Suggest a Correction feature for correspondence regarding a listing, transfers or to add information and links.

|Jerald||Jessie Pritchett Gravesite|
Thank you so much for including a photograph of one of my father's cousins, Jessie Pritchett, at the Carthage, Jasper County, Missouri cemetery. He holds a special place in my heart.
I was searching for my father's people a few years ago - they lived in the Carthage, Missouri area but my Dad was born and raised out west so he didn't know much about the folks back there. I wrote a letter to one of the newspapers back there asking for information about the Pritchett family.
A couple of weeks later a lady called me, said she saw my letter in the paper, then got an urge to go up to her attic and look around - didn't know what she was looking for. She found an old photo album her father bought at a yard sale before he died - he just thought the album lokked nice so he bought it for a couple of dollars.
She found about 50 photos in the album - didn't know a single person in the bunch - some had pencilled-in names on the back of the photos but none that she recognized.
One had an obituary with it - she asked me if I knew anything about a young boy who died of a gunshot wound. I told her that my Dad once mentioned something like that, and he gave me the name of the child: Jessie Pritchett
The lady on the phone said "Well, that is the name of this child." She sent me all of the photos - they ALL were my Dad's family!

Find A Grave Memorial# 64950167
I entered a correction for his birth place-he was born in Burnet County, Texas-probably in Lake Victor-a township in Burnet County, Texas. His grandmother Ardelia Woods Glimp-was my great grandmother's sister. Interestingly-his great grandfather-Norman Woods-was born in Woods Fort, present day Troy, Lincoln County, Missouri-in 1804. The family left Missouri shortly after 1820 and went to Texas.
My apologies for not making this correction sooner. I found a yearbook photo, and it's the same young woman I previously posted (I posted the yearbook photo on the page I have for her). I looked into Ancestry.com, and Nira M. Knell who married Charles Fleming Stone in 1945 was a daughter of Fred and Nellie Knell according to all records I could find.

Nancy-Thank you again for all your help at the cemetery. My search was very successful at the library and the Jasper County Annex! Thank you for suggesting them. After I returned home, I noticed in my records I do not have a date of birth for Thomas Francis Flannery-just a year and for Samuel James Flannery I just have a month and year. Is there of record of these dates in the files at the cemetery? Once again-THANK YOU-Marsha Adkison
|Christine Parsons (Wood)||Bill Boggess|
Shock!!! Am I to assume that Bill has died??? I just visited with him end of February at Shell Point in FL!! He is a distant cousin that I wanted to meet and talk genealogy with. Oh my gosh. I just returned home and had intended on sitting down and writing him a lengthy letter letting him know how much I appreciated our visit. Please advise. Thank you, Christine (Wood)

Even if the link is just plain text it is not allowed on Findagrave. Links change over time. Please remove any plain text or hyper-links from memorial pages.

|Wes T.||Powder Mill(s) Carthage|
Just wondering if you might have ever assembled a list of those who have been killed over the years working at the powder plants there? (Hercules, Atlas, etc.) One of my ancestors worked there around the turn of the century; WININGER, James Browder # 90907556. I relate one of his stories on his memorial and I always wondered how many died in that one particular explosion. Thanks.

Thank you so much for getting me back to Findagrave. I am really attached to the Geo. Miller record. The cemetery was hard to get into as it is fenced and locked with cattle (including a bull) roaming. I slid under a gate as did my husband, keeping an eye out for the law as we did so. My husband and I traced the Miller family from Kentucky to Oklahoma, visiting each place they lived, stopping in small towns to visit little museums and speak to elderly people who had recollections of the family. We spent several days out at the site of the 101 ranch, Cowboy Hill, and the various museums that hold the ranch memorabilia. We visited the cemetery and graves in Ponca City where Miller family members are buried. The trip from our home in North Carolia to the sad remnants of the 101 is a treasured memory. If someone has something to add I have no problem with that, but I want to retain my record. It means a lot to me.

From the former email@example.com, now firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am not still actively transcribing cemeteries and changed my E-mail address a while back to get rid of the nuisance messages. I wasn't thinking about losing my place in the Findagrave records and also at Rootsweb, it didn't occur to me. I also lost all my contacts so it was a big headache.
If you were messaging for a specific reason other than the name change please respond. If you know how to get my cemeteries changed over to my new E-mail I would appreciate it.
