Please understand that I have no control over the names, words and dates engraved on stones, written on death certificates or provided in obituaries. I didn't write them. I'm only providing those previously written words to you.

I have been a contributor on this site for over 13 years, so yes it stands to reason that I have a fair number of memorials that I have entered, added to and lovingly care take even though they may not be a branch of my own family. It's quite possible that if I had not entered the memorial to begin with, you may not have been able to find them.

Individuals using this site need to realize that we are all volunteers and do not need to deal with abusive behavior or rudeness just because we won't make a transfer to someone who has registered two days or two months ago and want every memorial on the site with the surname of Jones. Or a transfer of a memorial of someone who they think just might be a fifth cousin, four times removed of their third ex-husband.

If you are new to this site, PLEASE read the "Frequently Asked Questions" located "HERE". If you take just a moment to familiarize yourself with these guidelines, it will definitely help yours and everyone else's state of mind, blood pressure and headaches.

If you will please use the "Edit" tab located on each memorial, I will be more than happy to correct, edit or add information to a memorial that is meaningful. I will not add all of the information from the past ten census records that have been released or any distasteful or disturbing messages.

Please be kind. We all make mistakes from time to time. If I have made a mistake or created a duplicate memorial later than one you have created, please use the "Edit" tab and send me the correction or let me know of the duplication and it will be taken care of quickly.

I will make transfers using the "Guidelines" if they are not a relative of mine. I will transfer your children, siblings, parents, grandparents or great-grandparents. All other requested transfers will be considered if you use the "Edit" feature and state your relationship or intended need for the memorial.

Lastly and most importantly, there are so many absolutely wonderful people that use Find-A-Grave! I am very appreciative for all of the suggested corrections, additional information and photos that have been provided. Please don't allow the rude, abusive and sometimes rather bizarre behavior of individuals to curb your enthusiasm or your want to help others.

Warm regards,

Beta County Mapper

Duke & Kathy. Yes, Gloria Ardrey is my cousin and we are working on this family history together.
Again, thank you for your help. Ann

Marker Information
Please look into edits I have made for the gravesites of Mary Louisa Blocker Ellis in the Blocker Ellis Cemetery, Garland County, Arkansas, USA. The information in the listing does not match the marker. Also, this Mary Louisa is the daughter of John Blocker, not his wife.
Also, the listing for Mary Louisa Cox Ellis is incorrect. It should read Mary Louisa Cox Blocker as she was the wife of John Blocker. Both these listings go to the same marker.

Thank you in advance for any help provided with this information. I am a family member and would like to see this corrected. I think it could all be confirmed by someone going to the markers.

Bagaley/Bagalay memorials
The name changes I submitted were based on the information in an obituary for John E. Bagaley/Bagalay in which the second spelling was used. That is also how it is reported on his death certificate.

This has been a puzzle as the death dates are nine days apart and some differences that made us wonder if there was two different men so I left both memorials up.
Thanks for reminding me to keep looking
