Find A Grave Instructions:
How do I get a relative's memorial transferred to me?
First, Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Transferring of management should only be requested if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Annie C. C. Smith Alston
Hello Susan,
Many thanks for posting the grave listing, with obituary, for Annie C. C. Smith Alston. In 1869, in New York City, "Annie Smith" wrote a letter, in the Deseret Alphabet, to Orson Pratt's daughter Larinda Marissa Ross Pratt in Salt Lake City. It survives in the LDS Church History Library, CR 244 415 (Box 5, Folder 10). In the letter, she writes about being born in India, and being in service (working as some kind of maid) before being called by Orson Pratt to transcribe the New Testament into the Deseret Alphabet. Until I found your listing, I despaired of ever finding any more information about this "Annie Smith." The Deseret Alphabet manuscript of the New Testament, never printed, also survives in the Church History Library.

If you, or anyone else, has more information about Annie C. C. Smith Alston, I would be most interested. Perhaps letters, a journal, anything written in the Deseret Alphabet?

All best wishes,
Ken Beesley

RE: Girard Cemetery
I don't have a number for Girard Cemetery. You may call the city of Girard and they might have records for the cemetery of give you a number to contact. The number for city hall is 620-724-8918.

Paul McCulley Rayburn (#125949917) was born to William & Rocia Della Rayburn. He was married to Mary D. Rayburn, and they share a marker. The information on his memorial page is everything I have about him.

Hi: I'm not sure about the message to me, since I am not a researcher. However, I might refer you to my Personal Find A Grave Bio., particularly paragraphs 4-7, which clarifies my scope of updates requested by fellow Contributors. I will gladly transfer this memorial upon your request so you can pursue the subject in question. Have a good day.

I have added your note that Elsie and Clyde Orlando Benedict were married on November 17, 1908, in Haysville, Sedgwick, Kansas, to their memorials (52355657 and 58802097). Thanks for the clarification.

Elsie Bessie Belle Sherman Brosius
Hi Susan,

I got your message:

"Thank you for including Elsie on f.a.g. Please link to her parents and include their marriage date of: November 17, 1908, Hayesville, Sedgwick Co., Kansas
"With my appreciation, Susan"

I have linked Elsie's memorial to those of her parents, Frederick Samuel Sherman and Mary Isabelle (Rogers) Sherman, who were married in about 1876, according to the 1900 federal census.

Best Regards,
Vincent Prichard

This is James W Ruble's resting place. The following web link is to his 1920 census interview:

His wife is buried in the same cemetery.

I believe his birthday was May 18, 1882 but he misrepresented it to the Army when he enlisted to fight in the Spanish-American War. Since it is an Army headstone, it used the year he gave them: 1879.

RE: Pearl C. Ruble, Jacques
Excellent. She had two other brothers:Louie M and James W. Wouldn't it be great if we could link them all.
