Bio and Links
Bio Photo Transfers under the following guideline. I've learned a long time ago you can't please everyone and I'm not going to try. For you who like to break the rules, don't waste your or mine time. If your request is outside my guidelines, I will ignore and delate your request.


Generation 1: your family -- Husband - wife - your children - son-in laws - daughter-in-laws - grandchildren.

Generation 2: your and spouse parents -- Father - Mother - aunts - uncles - 1st cousins - wives and hubands of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Generation 3: Grandparents - their siblings and their children -- huband and wife of siblings and children.

Generation 4: Great Gradparents - their siblings and their children - huband and wife of siblings and children.

NO transfers beyond the great-grandparents and NO transfers of Revolution Soliders or Civil War Soliders or Sailors.

This is a MUST!!! You have to tell me your RELATIONSHIP to the person you want transfered and PROVE if I shoud ask FOR proof. No transfer.

Don't waste my time with: I went school with...I do research for another person would you consider transfering...they were neighbors to my grandparents...I work with this person...they were my neighbors when I was a kid...just this once would consider breaking the rules...ect. ect. ect. If you are not related, forget it. My transfers go to family members who fall within the guide lines.

For you who think there should be no rules and should transfer every request that comes down the pipe, take it up with Find A Grave. They're the ones who set the rules.

CORRECTIONS: For you impatient persons who believe your request should be answered in a 24 hours period of time. Get Real! I may have 30 or 40 other requests before yours comes in. I do answered all corrections but it might take several day or weeks. I don't spent 24-7 at the computer. I know this is hard for you to believe but I do have a life outside the computer. I do have family and friends I spent time with, I have a part time job, yard ward, house keeping, grocery shopping, library research, visiting cemeteries for tombstones to photograph, searching cemeteries for requested tombstones and other chores that has to be do.

MY PERSONAL GOAL: My reason for joining Find A Grave is to presrve graves and their tombstones. That's where the bulk of my time on the computer goes, adding people and their tombstones. Corrections and tranfers are done when I can find extra time in the day. So if it takes me one or two months to answering your requests, so be it. Don't give me any guff, that if I can't keep up with the requests, I should transfer the memorials to someone who can. Get Real!! It won't happen!

Your service
Just a note to thank you for your service here Richard. I understand the tone in your bio, I've read some of the comments... 20 years in Navy Medicine, in any customer service skill set - I am well aware there's always "those guys"... I think modern retail box stores created them - the entitled, the demanding, the always right, the you will do this for me right now types... Retail telling them they are, come on in an abuse our staff, make yourself at home and let those domestic disturbance pent up emotions out, you're right, you're always right - Probably same folks called "trolls" on Facebook posts... those people that no matter what the post - they gotta comment and poo-poo it.... "those guys"... It's NOT exactly like you're making millions DOING THIS FOR THESE PEOPLE because they're too damn lazy to do it themselves.... so - THIS BUD'S FOR YOU! MR. CEMETERY GRAVE LOGGER! For all you do. Doing so much, for so little, for so long, for so many ungrateful. Thank you for logging my Grandparents. 8329396

RE: Francis Wright
FindaGrave Memorial #31946710 Francis M. Wright!

Ruth S. Gibson was the daughter of David Gibson and his first wife, Mariah Scoggin. Mariah died in Dearborn Co., IN and David Gibson died in Chenoa, IL.

Francis Marion Wright and Ruth Gibson had one son, William Wright, b. abt 1851 in Washington Twp., Tazewell Co., IL. Ruth is buried in the Old City Cemetery in Washington, IL. David is buried in the Payne Cemetery at Chenoa.

From the 1860 through 1880 census records are these children born to Francis Marion and Philura Holland.

Elizabeth Wright, b abt 1858
Almira Wright, b. abt 1859; m. Marcus L Burnett
George Wright, b. abt 1861
Perry Kize Wright, b. abt 1863
Annie Wright, b. abt 1865
John F. Wright, b. abt 1867
Harvey L. Wright, b. abt Dec 1869
Daniel W. Wright, b. abt 1870
James Allen Wright b. abt 1877

[A biographical sketch of Harvey L. Wright in a history of Bates Co., MO indicates Francis and Philura had nine children.]

In the Washington News, Washington, IL, August 3, 1893, Page 5 is this entry: "Five sons of Frank Wright, formerly of this neighborhood, now residing in Bates county, Mo., took refuge in a large cattle shed on their farm during a thunder storm last week. The building was struck with lightning killing two of the boys outright and knocking the other three down." This corresponds to the dates of death listed for John F. Wright and Daniel W. Wright--so explains their deaths!

Hope this helps!

Re: Memorial #65201828
You apparently added (2) gravestone photos to the Guy Franklin Kohler memorial, but the pictures are of his brother's gravestone instead. Could you remove the photos from here and instead post them to his brother's memorial?

Thanks -

I do have documentation
But, made an edit to change his name to Snodgrass rather than Snorgrass.
Added by dek_tx on Jan 04, 2017 10:01 AM
I have very good records for my mother's Snodgrass line. Do you have documentation for this person belonging to my line because I don't.
