Please take a moment and visit my family. Thank you so much.

If I have offended anyone, please let me know and I will remove the memorial of your loved one. If you aren't a part of Find A Grave, you can still contact me through the edit tab of the memorial. I don't mean to offend anyone. All memorials are created out of respect. The purpose of me adding names is because I believe that people should never be forgotten, and also I like to help people who are searching for their ancestors. I am so thankful for Find A Grave because not only have I found many of my ancestors, I have found many related family members alive.

I will be happy to transfer memorials. You MUST state the relationship with your ID number. All RUDE requests will be ignored!

Duplicates - These are errors, and not created on purpose. I search before I create a memorial and after every time. Please bring any errors or duplicates to my attention so I can correct them. If I have created a memorial and you create a duplicate, do not send me a message that the one I created is a dupe and for me to delete. I will not delete any memorials if you created a dupe. Don't create a dupe memorial just because you're related. If you are family, kindly ask for a transfer or you can add photos and send me information to be added and I'll be glad to add it. Please read the FAQ's for this site on creating memorials.

Feel free to use my photos 📷 as long as you give me credit and do not make any money off them.

Find A Grave Memorial# 95293536
Dovie C Eason Kerlin is married to Harvey James kerlin Find A Grave Memorial# 163585627. Which is correct but there appears to be two Find A Grave's for Dovie.

Now what is rather odd is her Alabama Death date is March 19, 1960 and the headstone clearly shows March 19, 1980.

I a relative from Canada doing my ancestry that truly appreciates the work done on Find A Grave. So I am going to attach my findings to see if you can determine her actual death year.

I've transferred the memorial to you. I am related by marriage only. Do you know where his sister, Permelia Mahan Black is buried?

RE: Clifford Goggins & Arnita Goggins Kelley
When I enter the memorial number, Arnita Goggans Kelley's memorial shows up. But when I search through the cemetery, all I see is the duplicate. Do you have any idea why this is happening? I haven't seen it before.
