Please review Find A Grave's transfer policy: "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."


We live in central North Carolina. My late husband is from Barren County, KY, so a lot of the genealogy that we worked on is from that area.

Our main surnames in NC are McDade, Foreman, Weaver and Lashley. In KY Kerley, Branstetter, Jenkins, Simmons, Chism and Howard.

We have taken digital photos of tombstones in our area which are then posted on Cemetery Census.

Find A Grave Memorial # 32665702
Thank you for creating this memorial for who you have listed as "Infant Collier". This child, who was born and died on the same day, was Susan H. Collier - a daughter of Anderson Allen Collier and Mary Jane (Moore) Collier. I know her name was Susan H. Collier as it was recorded as such in the old Collier family Bible. Anderson Allen Collier was a son of my ancestors, Bartley S. Collier & Elizabeth Eaton but he was not one of my ancestors.

I have submitted three edits for her memorial which, when approved by you, will change her place of birth and death to Glasgow, Barren Co., KY. (where her parents were recorded on both the 1860 & 1870 census). The second edit was to change her name to Susan H. Collier. And the third edit submitted was to link her to both of her parents - who were both interred in the Sunset Hill Cemetery, in Warrensburg, Johnson Co., Missouri.

Thanks again for taking the time to create this memorial for you and best wishes to you - Kelly

P.S. I am not seeking a transfer.

Madison K. Amyx never married. Your note for his grave lists Elizabeth Boatwright as his wife. She was the wife of his brother: Matthew K. Amyx.

Found My sisters tombstone. Started crying so much. God I miss her. So glad I found this though. Thank you so much!

thank you for adding my cousins
wondering if you are related to Tommy Earl Cobb & his mom Annie Laura Morgan. Annie was my mom's first cousin. I posted a picture of Annie & her sister on Tommy's memorial.

Nancy A. Ragains - Kerley Cemetery

Thank you for editing Nancy's memorial; she is my great grand aunt.

We visited Kerley Cemetery June 2013 to pay our respects to Tircy Triplett (1792-1862); she is my great great grandmother. What a beautiful rural cemetery!

I have some more birth/death location edits for Nancy, as well as her first spouse. Sorry, I didn't have them at the time of the first edit I requested.

Thanks, again.

Johnson's of Barren County
I am looking for more information on these folks. Children of Tolbert Fanning Johnson (1849-1924) are of interest. I found you have a memorial for Henry E Johnson but my records show Jul 1883 as the year of birth. any information would be great.
