Bio and Links
Bio Photo MISSION: I believe Find A Grave's mission first and foremost is to document cemeteries; to accurately record graves, not to build one's family tree.

Find A Grave FAQs says: Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave should fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

Find a Grave memorials [may] contain rich content including pictures, biographies and more specific information. Members can leave remembrances via 'virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience.

TRANSFERS (PLEASE READ): Per Find A Grave FAQs, Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred.

I will consider making out-of-guideline transfers on a case-by-case basis. Please tell me your specific relationship to the one you want transferred to you. I need specifics not vague statements such as this is my family member, my relative or they are in my family tree. IF YOU AREN'T SPECIFIC, I WILL IGNORE/DELETE YOUR REQUEST. Please be considerate when asking.

This is guidelines set forth by Find A Grave. If you don't agree with them, please take it up with Find A Grave.

RE: Christopher & Fannie Gipson

You are welcome and thank you for denying an incorrect edit, as well as bringing them to my attention so that I can get my facts right. I know I am newer at this journey, but I am intent on having factual information in my family history. My brother, David, was the real enthusiast and introduced me to his research about 2 years ago, when I moved back home due to my own illness. However, I really came back to care for him. Therefore, upon his death in December 2015, I inherited all of his files and documents (30 years of research) my passion. I can't believe how many hours a day I spend on this these days. I am planning to travel to cemeteries to obtain photo's of headstones that I do not have on file very soon.

I would be honored to maintain any and all of the Gibson/Gipson accounts that you feel comfortable letting me. I assure you that I do not take such an honor lightly. I say Gibson/Gipson because due to some family issues there are 2 spellings of our family began as Gibson.

RE: Christopher & Fannie Gipson
Christopher Columbus Gibson, my great uncle:

Birth: Per his WWI and WWII draft registration cards, he was born in Moro, Lee, Arkansas, USA. Per our family records he was born at home.

Death: To my knowledge there is no certificate of death that I can locate. However, Per the California Death Index (1940-1997), it does show that he died in Fresno County, California, USA. The US Death Index showed that his last address was Orange Cove, Fresno, California, USA but showed no location of death and as that is the document that I updated ancestry with - it is also what I used in my request. The City shouldn't be updated, but the County should.

Francis "Fannie" Leatta Berry-Gipson, my great grandmother:

Birth: Per all census records from (when she was
1 month and 6 days old) July 12, 1870 (Water Valley, Township 11, Yalobusha, Mississippi, USA) until April 6-9, 1940 show she was born in Mississippi. Per our family record, she was born at home in Water Valley.

Death: As with Christopher (her son), I used the US Death Index info that showed the same information.

I have corrected the death locations for each of them in my records. Thank you so much for your help.

Please kindly consider this request: I would like to manage my Uncle Fran's memorial. This is my father's favorite brother-in-law. Although Uncle Fran is not an immediate or direct blood family member of mine, he is of my father's and I would like to honor him.

Thank you in advance for your transfer consideration
