"I am more than happy to make corrections and add relationship links but am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to growing misunderstanding of what Find A Grave is about by those discovering the site for the first time.
The time members have put into their efforts working together and sharing information is not up for grabs based on same-name surname or lineage and I will not do any of these type of transfers."
The most abused feature in Find A Grave
If you are asking me,or someone else, to link, transfer or add to memorials, please GO TO THE PERSON'S MEMORIAL PAGE AND CLICK ON EDIT.
Please do not ask me to look up memorials from this page.
Sending numbers does not help me...
It makes it easier and quicker for the person who is linking the memorials.

Thank you for adding the requested link to her father!
I love your sense of humor! Like I could tell how I'm related to everyone by writing it on my bio page! That really made me smile...I'm not closely related to James, it is a connection I have just started to explore. I will withdraw my request for a transfer. Thanks for all you do for Find A Grave!

Don't hate to ask: I'm still learning how to do all this stuff. I just "shared" my first memorial last week. The more I just do, the more I learn. Who says you can't teach an old dog! I'm getting pretty old, but I learn every day, if I make any effort at all. I'll send it to your email. Thanks again for your interest. We may just get to the bottom of this yet.

Don't see the Link button. Do I need to sponsor the Grave?

I don't know how to link or add graves. Edward had a son, Raymond Earl Easterday buried in Cedar Hill Cemetery Greencastle PA, Born Jun 23, 1907, Died Mar 26 1975.
Someone please explain how to link these entries, especially if there is a missing entry..?

|Rags||RE: Marie Gaddy.|
I guess I'm not doing a very good job of 'slpainin'. We know where HE was buried: and he WAS buried with Melba, in NC. We believe he had a double stone made when Marie died, but we can't ask him NOW, can we?!? He was grieving, she died too young, he would love her forever, and then he would be buried with her at the double stoone. But things changed. He had a partnership with Melba's husband, whom no one could find a record of, because one of the Kansas papers spelled his name "Hotzhuter," and there is no such name. I found an obit in another paper which spelled his name correctly, and then I found HIS obit, which lists her as a survivor ( which is where I learned her middlename), and then I found THEIR SON'S obit, which lists both of them as his parents. The name is correctly spelled "HoLzhuter" and they each have linked memorials on findaGrave, but if you try googling, you'll find that there are living Holzhuters both in Germany and in America, which is not true of Hotzhuter, an accidentally invented name. The SSDI agrees with what I am telling you also.
After Holzhuter the elder's death, Melba took over his half of the partnership. She was quite capable by all accounts. Eventually I suppose romance ensued. (I only met Melba once, but she was very gracious and it is thanks to Melba that I got to know Dad as well as I did: at that point I hadn't seen him since I was a child.) They married and got a big contract which moved them to North Carolina, and our belief is that Marie Gaddy was left behind, and that no one is buried next to her, but the stone was carved with his name in anticipation of his demise. If there is a record of his interrment, or an obituary, or if his dates are carved into the stone, then I will believe she was buried next to, and married to, a DIFFERENTJames Gaddy. Absent any of that, I believe I have it right, as Gaddy is not a common name, and we know too much which agrees. Pardon me for over-explaining. That's what I do. In any event, the second wife would not be blood kin, so findagrave rules and recommendations don't say for you to transfer her. I just thought I'd ask. Some people don't mind transferring. It doesn't really affect your numbers. Your name stays on the memorial as "originally posted by." It seems unlikely that I will learn much more about her in the way of bio, but if I do, I hope you will post it. You have been quick to respond, which I appreciate. Maybe another pic of the stone, with attention to dates would solve the mystery. But you've been doing this longer than myself, so I assume that if those dates were in evidence, you would have already created a memorial to her husband.
