Bio Photo Just a friend!

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 14 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. Just a hint, most people will not respond to your liking when bullying tactics are used.

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

RE: Kittabel M. McMinn Farrington Wade
Hi Joan....what a Wonderful surprise Thank You! I do have an earlier picture of Fannie & my grandmother when she was a small child, not real clear ones, but still so nice to have. If it's OK, don't know how many pictures are allowed, will post them. Also have one with J. F. McMinn & Fannie, maybe will post under his site.

Martha Fahl
The information I have re: Martha is what is noted on her memorial. She was transferred from Pilgrims Rest Cemetery to Good Hope. Information is the same in records at both cemeteries. I looked on family search, I do see that a Martha was listed in the census records in 1930 with a husband named August. I just wonder how records at both cemeteries can be wrong. If you have a proper year of death that can be verified, I will definitely update her memorial. I will keep searching as well to see what I can find. Thank you for your efforts.

Kind regards,

RE: Kittabel M. McMinn Farrington Wade
Hi Joan...thanks so much for offering to help. Bruce McMinn also offed help as you did. I'm brand new to Find a Grave & didn't realize that the person has to have a burial site to be on the family list.
And my grandmother doesn't have one, as it was her wish to be cremated. You all are very kind, so thank you again.
