HI ya Glenn, Most all of the folks here at Find A Grave are just great. They welcome info that is sent to them for a memorial. There are more who will never respond to an email type of suggestion. There are those who for some reason, nick and pick over everything. Now there are certain facts that need to be correct of course and we all want those edits coming to us. When you find a contributor whose comments on their profiles pages contains as many or more where people have been offended by the way the contributor wrote to them..that is a caution. I avoid those people if I can. I just want to add info to help others. I try and stay away from the self appointed gardeners. You just keep on adding what you can, because we hope that it will be a help for others seeking their families. That makes it all worth it.
Leaving flowers with a Bio Hi Glen, It is fine to leave info with the flowers you post. Problem is that if others start adding flowers then yours will roll off the screen and not be available for viewing. When someone leaves flowers and notes it is their personal business. No one can make you delete what you have entered unless it is crazy and offensive. The person who told you so has a few things in some of their listings that could be reported. If a manager of a memorial tells you to remove Flowers and notes you have left you do not have to. This is per Find A Grave administrators and I saw the post in the discussion boards. Keep up the good work!
Crawford Yes, my husband is 1st cousin 2 X removed. I have quite a bit of information on the Crawfords. My email is email@example.com. Get with me after February 10th. I have a family emergency and won't be back from Montana until then.
I visited the Jefferson-Goar cemeter and could not find the stone; however, I visited the Winterset Library and a book there said there was no stone but had the following dates for Carrie: Born 1887 and died 10-18-1880; hope this helps.
