I am working on finding the graves of the descendants of Anthony Yerkes which are listed in the "Chronicles of the Yerkes Family With Notes On The Leech And Rutter Families" by Josiah Granville Leach published in 1904, and on finding the graves of those people mentioned in "Sketches of William Hicks, Abner Hicks, Jasper Hicks, George Harris, James Crews, John Earl and something of their Descendants With Comparisons of Present Conditions of Living With Those of Sixty Years Ago" by Titus Thurston Hicks, printed in 1926 and reprinted in 1954. I have virtual cemeteries for those that I have found.

Posting photos on FindAGrave does not automatically put them in the public domain. Please ask if you want to use any photos of mine and tell me what you want them for. My email is rafbeas at aol. If I find my photos used without my permission, I will take all necessary steps to redress the situation.

Do not email transfer requests. Use the Edit tab on the memorial. Transfers outside Find A Grave guidelines will be assessed on a case by case basis. Please tell me your specific relationship to the deceased and explain what you have to contribute to the memorial that I can't add. I am glad to add any links (except to memorials with no burial location) or bio information that you send. I do not add links to memorials where the final disposition has not been determined. Do not put obituaries or other information on the deceased in a flower.

Brinsmead, Brinsmade, Brinsmaid
Check out # 20998829 if you will. I was looking through this list for the mother of an ancestor whose name was spelled variously "Brinsmade, Brinsmead, Brainsmaid, and Brunsmade in different places.

I noticed that this Mercy Brinsmade (who was born around the time I'm looking at) —on her stone, her and her husband's name is spelled "Brinsmaid" I THINK.

This is an example of how you should always use the name the way it is spelled on the stone. This name was spelled a variety of ways, and none of them is a mistake. (I wrote them and pointed this out just now.)

Spelling the name "Malleville" "Mallewille" is not an example of this, because the name "Malleville" was NEVER spelled "Mallewille" anywhere, except on that gravestone. So to put the Memorial under that name would be wrong to do, because descendants would never look under that name.

Whereas the descendants of Brinsmades WOULD look under its various spellings, because it is well-known that it WAS spelled in a variety of ways.

I wanted to point that out to you because I think that THIS is the kind of case where one should insist that the name be spelled as it is on the stone.

One's thinking needs to be flexible as well as observant, I think. One does not want to cause harm by one's decision, as the decision to spell Malleville "Mallewille" would. I HOPE you see what I'm talking about now!

RE: THomas
Ah, I see you are still angry. I think you should run this case past whatever "authorities" you have there and see if they agree that the name should have been left "Mallewille" as the name you search for it under. The only thing the "authority" wrote me was that it is up to the person whose memorial it is to make decisions about it. They were supporting you, not because there is that rule about the name on the stone, but because of THAT rule about who makes the decisions.

That is not to say that there is not an important rule about the name on the stone being the name you use, but what about exceptions? I wish you would check into it.

I did not ask for you to transfer him to me, so you don't have a right to ask me to do or not do something. I will do as I see fit, as a rational and moral person. I don't even know what it is you are telling me I have to do — but you didn't even apologize to me for all the trouble and insults you gave me, so I don't feel like being lovey dovey and cooperative as a general attitude towards you.

I think you owe me an apology which would consist of more than removing those passages and naming them accurately as to their emotional tone.

Then we can be back on a friendly basis, which is what I would like.

RE: Viewed stone
Sorry, The stone of Charles Garrett, Find A Grave Memorial# 128650552, I thought I was attaching a note to his memorial.
Charles Garrett's info and that of Rosanah Kuykendall are on the same stone, lying flat among the weeds, Per the stone, after his name are the
words, "departed this life A.D. 1847 aged 51 years".
As far as can be told, it is only stone there.

Death Year
I viewed this stone yesterday. The death year is given as 1847. Given the age of 51 years (also on the stone) this would make birth about 1796.

Hi RosalieAnn,
I tried to send you a private message in the Forums and it wouldn't let me. Is your mail box full or do you just have it turned off?

Cheers, Rich

RE: Obituaries
That's what's nice about being and American, everybody has a right to their opinion. The rub is when one person attempts to force their opinion upon others.
