PLEASE IF YOU HAVE ANY INFO ON ANYONE I OWN, PLEASE TELL ME! I don't care if it's a silly little story about what you remember of them! Anything to give that memorial a voice, I will add. WE are the voices for these people. Let's give them all a story. I try to find any info I can, but sometimes you fall short. So any and all are welcome.|
For the first 6 years my husband and I were members of Find a Grave we never put any effort into helping others. We only used this site as a tool in finding his family. I have been lucky that my family has kept records. He has no clue about where he came from. That is why Scott and I became members of this website. Now that we have learned about his history, we decided that it's time to pay back people that helped us. I know what we are doing won't change history, nor will we get a prize for the work we do. But at least we can shut our eyes at night knowing maybe, just maybe we made someone's day for the efforts we have done. This is not a charity to us, but a way to give to others. I had a little old man tell me years ago " Talk to a new person everyday and you will grow as a person". He was right.... I have never been a shy person, which is odd that I married someone that is. But he makes me grow... Don't be hateful; it only brings pain. Be grateful; it only brings joy. Words to live by... Please don't hesitate to send me info, corrections, or even complaints. We have been photographing headstones for less than a year (8/2013) and love every second. The history I have learned and the history my husband has helped me with has been mind blowing. I always hated history. To bad they didn't teach us this kind of history in school. Please everyone: THIS IS MY ACCOUNT AND MY HUSBANDS!!!! WE ARE LINKED; SCOTT & KRISTY!!!!! I hate people that assume I'm the requester just because that is the account name. I could change it to Bologna Sandwiches and you wouldn't think twice about the name. So quit thinking I'm the requester, just because it's my name! WE ARE THE ACCOUNT HOLDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you and sorry on a rant...
Kristy & Scott Rice

I have transferred Bethany Rogers to you. She was your friend and you should manage her memorial.

|Anonymous||RE: Wayne Slocum|
I am not related. No need to transfer. I came across Wayne's father's obit in a huge stack I have and so I made the links. The fathers obit was sent to the contributor of that memorial.
|Ginny||RE: Israel Jones|
Thanks for the info. Here is a link to his listing with the National Park Service: http://www.nps.gov/civilwar/search-soldiers-detail.htm?soldierId=DE0895BB-DC7A-DF11-BF36-B8AC6F5D926A

Thank you so much for the information I will add it as soon as I get a chance. I had seen on the pension form that it looked like his middle name was Mitchell but did not want to add it until I was sure. How amazing and sad to know who 'owned' him prior to the war. And thank you for the offer in the MO counties. After I saw your post on FB I intended to send a friend request and offer the same. I live in Olathe now but lived in Kansas City North/Kansas City MO for years. I found 'Find A Grave' several years ago working on my family genealogy and although I do not get a lot of time to work on memorials I do what I can when I get the chance. It is always fun finding others who are interested in this as well. And it is awesome to help other families find their history. I added you to my friends list here as well. So glad to make your acquaintance.

|Heartsong||RE: Walter Browne|
Hi again, Kristy! Glad my post helped provide a lead for you. :-) Hope all is well with you and yours.
|Leslie Harrison Wyman||RE: Tavia Tomlinson McAdams|
Good morning! Tavia is Octavia May "Tavia" Tomlinson, daughter of William Ambrose and Jennie (Houchin) Tomlinson. I'm descended from a different branch of Tomlinson's, which is where I've been concentrating my research lately, but the ones in Crowley are related through marriage (and I feel sure, through blood, once I can ever make the connection).
Thanks for contacting me - your interest has ME interested in updating this branch further, so I'll be adding more information as I get it!!
|MissKitty||Minnie Mae (Longstreth) Peters gravestone photo|
May I have your permission to download the photos of the gravestone of Minnie Mae (Longstreth) Peters (Memorial# 18218414)?
I would like to upload them into my Ancestry family tree.
Thank you for your consideration.
|Hunts Forebears||RE: Lawrence Gilbert McCullough|
I too only have knowledge of him through research of his aunt (his mothers sister) that married my dads cousin. I am not directly related therefore, no need to transfer. I will forward any new info. as available.
