Due to misuse I am disabling public messaging except when I am on line.

If you need to contact me privately please use my dear friends Memorial. REMEMBER BE POLITE.

If you have a issue with a contributors memorial kindly let them know before going to F.A.G. administrators its just mean spirited to report something then attack them publicly before giving them a chance to correct your complaint.

Really really sick of people stealing my family photos and posting them as there own on Ancestry.
I plan to take any action that is available under the law to stop it.

Messages left below were never meant for edits or suggestions,for that use the edit tab on memorials
Please understand Find A Grave memorials are works in progress. And there is no excuse for being rude and abusive.

My photographic works and photos I have posted are protected by in bedded copyright. You Must ask permission before reproducing in any form.

Quote From Jim Tipton founder of F.A.G. on updated rules after being acquired by Ancestry. com found in help with find a grave.

"It will still be wrong for someone to 'steal' a photo from Find A Grave and post it on other websites as if it were their own".

If your reporting a duplicate please add the duplicates F.A.G. number.

Please remember that F.A.G. has threads running that will eventfully merge dups. into the first created . Don't go postal over a dup.
Please do not move a burial unknown memorial into a cemetery where I already placed a memorial and tell me I have to remove my "duplicate" memorial ,this is profusely widespread now.

Please do not ask me to post a obituary that does not have a source ,it is not allowed,and could lead to a breach of public domain.

If requesting a transfer first read that section in help with find a grave and in My bio. Other wise it will not be considered . Do not leave request on this page,must be done the proper way to be considered.

Please do not request transfers in less You fully intend to add links and or further improve the information. If you are just collecting memorials use your virtual cemetery function. No request will be considered with out relationship being stated. I have ancestry and will check so be truthful.

Transfers should be requested by using the edit feature on memorial and leaving as a suggestion or (sac) please do not leave request on My public messaging they will not be considered. Your relationship must be stated also. No exceptions.

Despite what many claim.
Find a grave is first and foremost a grave registration site,as stated by its founder.

I happily add links and other appropriate information if sent by the edit function on memorial.

Corrections /request should not be left as public message as there are plenty of other means now to do them. Public message's WERE NEVER MEANT FOR CORRECTIONS,SO I will not make corrections this way anymore as it is just to difficult.

Find a Grave seems to bring out the worst or the best in folks there seems to be no middle ground. For that reason it seems we all need to make a special effort to show as much respect for the living as we do for the one's who have passed on.

If it is your intent to be anything but cordial and respectful, I strongly recommend you read further in this bio. before doing so.

I hope F.A.G.soon works on punishing those who are stealing our work and photos as promised ,we work hard ,it is not fair that others get credit for our efforts. I have seen hundred if not thousands of my photos on and I am thinking of taking legal action.

I never profit from My photos even though I spend a great deal of time and money taking photos. And I really do not wont any person or web site to profit from them. And I do not wont My ancestors photos stolen and posted by others as though they belong to them. If I see My photo's on another Web site and My list shows no permission was obtained. I will ask them to be removed and if they are not ,I will contact the web site to have them removed .

I'm getting a lot of good feed back on My stance of not putting up with harassment, a lot of contributors are also fed up .Some are saying they are thinking of giving up, I think things will get better now that Ancestry. COM has acquired this site.

In till the last couple of Years ago the following statement was not necessary but unfortunately it is now.

To a select but growing few } Please be aware as a contributor on find a grave does not mean You have given up free will, no contributor is obligated to do anything. If You are making a suggestion do not turn it into a demand or try to manipulate or bully a contributor into making Your suggestion . I can't speak for others but as for Me any attempt at demanding or manipulation automatically rejects Your suggestion and further Hate mail internet bullying,stalking, intimidation are crimes and will be reported and prosecuted if necessary. Further more after becoming aware of theses crimes the web site is obligated to take action against perpetrators of these crimes or it is also at risk of prosecution.

A person goes out and spends money on a camera flash cards ,batteries. Gasoline,wear an tear on there vehicle not mention time, fights off snakes , mosquitoes,ticks,high grass and weeds, walks in the heat and cold,mud and people cant even send them a thank You ,something is seriously wrong with that,but that's what happening,out of my last 50 or so photo request I fulfilled I got about 3 thank You notes,and about 8 or 10 for the last 50 transfers,and the fact that F.A.G. sends out a reminder email to suggest You say thank Yo, makes it even hurt more. Come on folks that is all we ask in return for transfers and photo request. I think this says a lot about what is wrong with society to day.

We all live in the shade of trees planted by those who came before us.

I am a taphophile and Genealogy Hound.

I am a taphophile because I like photographing gravestones.

I have been into cemetery Photography & Rubbings Collecting obituaries for 40 years .My experience in and love of investigation work has helped Me a great deal in My genealogical pursuits.

Rude or demanding behavior will result in Your request being rejected Automatically. Expect 30 days for Your request to be considered.

Any disrespectful activities or communications will not be tolerated and will be addressed as the situation dictates.

I found this text from a book that Google ( has scanned: "Arcana Lodge, No. 31, at Doniphan"
I'll keep it as Arcana.

I have changed the death date to your suggestion.

RE: Anton Braun
I found a list of Doniphan Cemeteries at
When you go to that link, click on the bar at the top of the page that says home, about us, calendar, "services", click on SERVICES, then in that drop down menu, click on "Local History and Genealogy". Then next page that opens, about mid-page click on "Doniphan Cemeteries". That link opens to an alphabetically menu based on letters in the last name of who you are looking for. It will list the name, dates of birth and death if they're available, the cemetery and some do list the section in the cemetery. It has really been helpful in my genealogy research. If you are in need, the Kansas Room online has all the Atchison County cemeteries listed in a similar set-up. Thanks again for your help--mona cote findagrave member #46945161

RE: Anton Braun
Thank you so much for trying to photo these stones in Doniphan. I have a child Anton Braun born about March 1878 and died about Aug 1879. I got these dates from an uncle who visited the cemetery sometime around 1970. Maybe they were as unreadable back then. I appreciate what you can do as I probably won't get up there for another year or two as I now live in Tennessee. Thanks - mona cote 46945161
