I am trying to downsize the number of memorials I manage, so ask for a transfer.

NOTE; Pleaze use the Edit function on the memorial to ask questions, which identifies the person in question. I have tens of thousands of names in my records and your courtesy is much appreciated.

RE: C Basey
Hello - This is part of the family tree I've been trying to sort out this week. Hard when the surname spelling varies so much, which is why I stick to the original and make notations where it has been changed. Tombstones are the best knowledge of the people at the time, so names and dates aren't necessary accurate. I'd gladly take care of any memorials you might like to transfer. Many thanks for your work on Find A Grave! ~ Nancy (#46638792)

RE: Re Sally Brown
Thank you for the rest of the Brown transfers. They are all now in the Brown Cemetery, Westchester Co, NY, and with photos. I think that the parents of James Brown (d. 1881) are also among the burials I posted. Do you want to confirm they are the right James and Esther Brown? I can add any further info you might have for that couple, if you have any.
Thank you again!!!

RE: Re Sally Brown
Hi Jim.
Thank you for the transfer of Sally M. Brown. I moved her into the correct burial location, the Brown Cemetery in Westchester Co. that has 10 burials within it. And I added photos of her headstone and footstone, plus a transcription of her headstone. I have created place holders for the other 4 memorials I requested from you: Harriet E. Brown, James O. Brown, James Brown and Elizabeth Brown, all mistakenly assigned to Pound Ridge Cemetery. (Did those requests not arrive on your end? Shall I send them again?)
Thank you for your help and generosity.

RE: Re Norman Knepper
Hi, Jim.
That was quick! No transfer is necessary; I'm not related - I just enjoy getting the families linked back together. Thanks.
