DO NOT copy MY memorials and post anywhere else on the internet without my permission.

Please do not add bio. information in the comments of the flower section of the memorials, when you leave a flower on someones memorial it is to honor that person, not to give information to other viewers of the memorial. Out of respect for the families, please DO NOT post images of death certificates in the photo sections of the memorials that I manage. Those that are uploaded will be requested to be removed.

If you have additional information or corrections for any of the memorials please use the SAC tab on that memorial.

I will not respond to nasty, abusive messages, and will report this behavior to Admins.

I do not contribute to FindaGrave to rack up my memorial numbers to the site. I am a genealogist and I use this for MY genealogical research. I will not post source information on this site. On the subject of transfers, the so many generation relation to the persons memorial is just a FAG "guideline", That means the creator of the memorial can transfer it outside of this "guideline" if he/she WISHES to.
I will not post obituries from suggest a corrections that appear to be copied from newspapers, funeral homes or that contain living persons.

about dups
Please read the FAQs under Actions : Help with Findagrave, about duplicates. If I bring it to your attention that you have made a duplicate memorial, don't get angry with me. If you do I'll just send that info to the admins. and you'll have to deal with them.

About memorial transfers for "maintenance";
If I should ask you for a memorial that you "Own" for maintenance, and you wish to keep the memorial yourself, simple, all you have to do is tell me to return the memorial to you after the edits, links, ect.(maintenance) is done with the memorial. I prefer to add the genelogical information about the person myself, I have had some bad information posted when I rely on others to do it correctly.

RE: Atkins,
I have found some in the Oak Grove book and only found the one in Woodlawn. I will try to help you out, it may take a little time since I'm going to concentrate on Oak Grove's requests for the Find A grave Community Day. I'll keep in touch.

RE: Atkins burials in Oak Grove Cemetery
Hi Don, Unfortunately we no longer live in Kansas and can not help to obtain more photos from Oak Grove. We've uploaded all the photos from our collections, taken in Oak Grove Cemetery. This Cemetery is very old and probably half or less of the grave markers are visible and/or readable. Sadly, this old and historic cemetery is now located in an isolated and unfriendly part of KCK, so it is not the best conditions for going there to look for graves. All these problems combine to making grave marker photo collecting a slow process.

John Atkins - 1859 - 1901
Hi Don,

My name is Liz Christensen. I'm going to be taking part in the Find A Grave Community Day. In getting ready, I spent time last Thursday and Friday going through the cemetery books at the Wyandotte County Museum. Your request for a picture of John Atkins headstone was one that I looked up. I did not find him in Oak Grove Cemetery in KC, KS, but did find him in the Woodlawn Cemetery book. They also list his birth year as 1861. He is in Sec 422 S 1. I will try to go by and get this while we are working on Oak Grove, but wanted to touch base with you with the discrepancy. I also could not find Anna Atkins - born 1861 - in either book.

Wagner gravestone in wrong cemetery
I left the flower note in Bethel to remind you those gravestone pictures were taken at Cedar-Bethel Cemetery NOT Bethel

Ina Wagner #9342196
Jeremiah Wagner #9342202
Lillie J. McNamer Wagner #9342223

I hope this helps. I did not know of any other way to still show you it was the wrong cemetery with the gravestone pictures on their memorials.
Again thank you,
L Forbes
