I enjoy helping others out. As well as working on my family history. If I can help in my area let me know. I will try to help get your photo and or obituary, if possible.|
However, after going out of my way to get pictures and the such, I would appreciate it if Marcia would stop trolling the findagrave site and nit picking at my and "other" contributors work, effort and help. We are all adults, or so should be.
I am human and do make mistakes, just like the rest of us. (Whether some want to admit it or not is still out for debate. LOL)
If you find a problem, please be kind when asking for corrections to be made. Don't ASSUME that all the information on the memorial was made by me. You know the saying "Don't assume- it'll make an ass out of you!" Most would agree that a polite contact is the best kind of contact.
In the event you find memorials that need to be linked. Please provide proof that it is husband and wife buried together. I've gotten wrong information. What a headache that was. So please provide proof. Thanks!!
Currently I am inputting information from cemetery books. I am not trying to have a bunch of memorials under my number WHO CARES???
What I care for is to list the forgotten, that's didn't have a headstone or the headstone is missing for whatever reason. For those that are searching for loved ones. Not knowing where in the "county" they are resting. Since inputting the cemetery book info. I have had several people contact me because I had solved mysteries where their relatives are buried at. That has been rewarding. It trumps the "negative" ones.
Found this wonderful writing by: Thelma Greene Reagan.
THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY LEAF
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

|Bobbi Harrison||John Harrison spouse & 1 daughter removal|
Hi labs2006, I did send messages explaining the incorrect addition of Emily Spangler Betts (1829 - 1914)* and her daughter Rosa Bell Harrison Whiteley (1863 - 1954)* that someone incorrectly added to the Find A Grave memorial of my husband's g-g-grandfather John Harrison. But I can't find any way to remove them from John's Find A Grave, nor from the sibling section of his real children. There doesn't seem to be a removal option for correctly, only adding. I don't know where in Hancock County, IL his true wife, Jane Ann "Jensie" (Cunningham) Harrison is buried, nor her exact death year. So I haven't created a Find A Grave memorial for her yet. Plus, if I did add her as his spouse to his page, that still would not get rid of Emily and Rosa's names from the Find A Grave memorials that I do have maintain control over. So how do I go about doing that?
|Bobbi Harrison||John Harrison|
John Harrison Find A Grave #122498241 was my husband's great-great-grandfather and I am requesting his memorial page to be transferred to me please. But there are 2 errors on his current memorial that need to be fixed:
Rosa Bell Harrison Whiteley (#35007061) was NOT a daughter of my husband's great-great-grandfather, John Harrison (1805-1861) Find A Grave #122498241. Nor was he ever married to Emily Spangler Betts (#105081611) So she was not a sibling to James Harrison, Mary Harrison Holtsclaw, George Washington Harrison or my husband's great-grandfather, Edward Paxton Harrison. Someone has added these two females to our line incorrectly.
There were 3 distinctly, unrelated Harrison family lines in Hancock County in the same time period and someone has gotten confused and incorrectly added Rosa and her mother Emily to my husband's family line. So how do we get them removed from our family member memorials?
|Bobbi Harrison||T. T. Tarr|
T. T. Tarr (Find A Grave Memorial# 122851132 was Troy Tracy Tarr and he was the 1st husband of Jeannette Elizabeth "Jennie" Curry. I would greatly appreciate having this Find A Grave memorial transferred to me, as Jeannette's mother, Lucy Thomas (Damron) Currey was my husband's great grandaunt and I have been researching and documenting all of the Damron siblings and their descendants for many years. It's taken me the longest to locate what happened to Troy Tracy Tarr. His full name was given on his son Roscoe Robert Tarr's death certificate, which I have. I'm now in the process of getting all the family Find A Grave memorials linked that I can. My Find A Grave contributor number is #15879681.
Thank you in advance
Thank you for the information.

A photo volunteer stated she searched the graveyard and could not find his grave there. Any ideas?
