My count is unbalanced because I maintain all the memorials of my close friend and genealogy associate Bill Boggess that died on March 4, 2015. Please visit his pages and for all of his genealogy research, which is quite extensive and leave a flower. He would love that.
I also maintain numerous memorials for several contributors that are no longer on Find a Grave.
All transfers will be done on an individual basis. Please state your relationship/or reason for requesting the transfer and be sure to include your member number.
PLEASE USE THE VIRTUAL CEMETERY FEATURE TO GROUP YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS TOGETHER. NOT ALL CAN BE TRANSFERRED CONSIDERING THERE IS A POSSIBILITY SO MANY PEOPLE CAN BE RELATED IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER.
LINKS, TRANSFERS & INFORMATION LEFT ON THE BOARD are very time consuming to search for those memorials and less accurate.
To insure accuracy. . .
PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB on the upper right side of the memorials, then choose the Suggest a Correction feature for correspondence regarding a listing, transfers or to add information and links.

|Barbara Darst||RE: Juanita Sloan Lowrance|
I am sorry, but I am not in charge of my sister's memorials that she added to Find A Grave.
|Cynthia Hart||RE: Caswell McClurg Death Date|
Thanks, I feel relieved. I didn't know for sure which was correct and hated to call the VA back and ask them to change it.
I'll update the blog post on Caswell McClurg to include the information from the newspaper articles.
Possibly Mose McClurg's birthdate is 1862? The 1870 Census of Camden County listed him as being 8 years old.
It is curious that Caswell's wife, Mary Ann Jones McClurg Vernon is buried elsewhere in the cemetery. One possibility is those who saw to her burial didn't know of the connection. Zoe Moore was listed as the person giving information on the death certificate and she wasn't able to provide much background, other than the connection to Andy Vernon.
Something drew Caswell's wife back to Carthage after their son died in 1915.
Your help has been very valuable!
Glad to transfer to keep family together. Thank you for all you contribute to Find A Grave. take care, Betty

|Cynthia Hart||Caswell McClurg Death Date|
Thank you for your help in updating the information on this site. I spoke with the VA Friday. They had a conflict in death date between the Widow's Pension application and the information from Park Cemetery. Based on the newspaper article quoted on Findagrave, they plan to use September 21, 1880, on his marker. I wanted to be sure this was correct since his death date is noted as 1879 on Findagrave. Thank you again for your help.

Hi Nancy, thank you for your kindness in copying and sending Sarah Alumbaugh's obituary. I do this for others also so was nice to be surprised with one. Donna
|Christine Parsons (Wood)||Bill Boggess|
Shock!!! Am I to assume that Bill has died??? I just visited with him end of February at Shell Point in FL!! He is a distant cousin that I wanted to meet and talk genealogy with. Oh my gosh. I just returned home and had intended on sitting down and writing him a lengthy letter letting him know how much I appreciated our visit. Please advise. Thank you, Christine (Wood)

Even if the link is just plain text it is not allowed on Findagrave. Links change over time. Please remove any plain text or hyper-links from memorial pages.

|Wes T.||Powder Mill(s) Carthage|
Just wondering if you might have ever assembled a list of those who have been killed over the years working at the powder plants there? (Hercules, Atlas, etc.) One of my ancestors worked there around the turn of the century; WININGER, James Browder # 90907556. I relate one of his stories on his memorial and I always wondered how many died in that one particular explosion. Thanks.

Thank you so much for getting me back to Findagrave. I am really attached to the Geo. Miller record. The cemetery was hard to get into as it is fenced and locked with cattle (including a bull) roaming. I slid under a gate as did my husband, keeping an eye out for the law as we did so. My husband and I traced the Miller family from Kentucky to Oklahoma, visiting each place they lived, stopping in small towns to visit little museums and speak to elderly people who had recollections of the family. We spent several days out at the site of the 101 ranch, Cowboy Hill, and the various museums that hold the ranch memorabilia. We visited the cemetery and graves in Ponca City where Miller family members are buried. The trip from our home in North Carolia to the sad remnants of the 101 is a treasured memory. If someone has something to add I have no problem with that, but I want to retain my record. It means a lot to me.
