Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've found numerous graves of my ancestors that someone had posted. I probably will never get to visit their graves, so I appreciate that "proxy" visit.
On my memorials, I'll add the parents' names if I can find where they were born, as it certainly can help with tracing them.
I especially like to find veterans (all wars) to honor them and will add a flag, or floral tribute, especially if they don't have one.

I welcome information to a memorial, or a correction. I usually don't edit or be judge and jury over whether to add it. Use the white Edit tab at right top of the memorial. I will transfer a memorial if you are a relative, but I'd expect you to transfer if someone else asks you and they are closer kin.
My Family names I research: Vance/Sinclair, Yarbrough/Ellis/Young, Montgomery/Posey, Barnett/ Reynolds; Yandell/Sparks, Lee/Durham, Ward, Powell/Weaver.

NOTE: I appreciate the person who posted that we need to look at our 'profile' page (top right) "Edits" to find requests for amendments to memorials we need to make for them.
Findagrave has made it easy to add these 'edits' by just "accept", and "process" them (bottom).

I still see people writing on a profile page asking to add links, etc. The upper right, white edit tab, will let you do that and it is an easy, accurate way to add links, titles, names, places, etc to a memorial, and the owner will probably get it done much, much, quicker.

With the "new edit" method, I don't always write a 'thank-you' nor do I expect one. We all have plenty to do to keep up. BUT, be assured that I do APPRECIATE any addition/correction, or PHOTO REQUEST you fulfill for me. Please accept this as my thanks for your efforts.

William Small
You added a bio to William Small 83078150. I am hoping you are a relative as he is a great grandfather of mine. I have been trying to break down the brick wall of his parents. I was hoping that you would also be the person who added his parents to the memorial. I was wondering how you were able to link them?

RE: Rev. Mark Atwood, d. Nov. 1898, St. Johnsboro
Hi Winnie,

I have looked all through my records of St J and can't find it.
I even scrolled through my photos to see if anything matched the description. I looked through the photos that surrounded the children's plots too.

The thing that confuses me is that there is suppose to be a church close by. I don't believe there are any cemeteries that have a church close by with the exception of St Johnsbury Center. And I don't see him there.

I saw his death notice in the St J Paper and it says the service was held in St J.
I did see one of his sons was buried in "the family plot" in Jericho.
I also thought I had connected with the "Michelle" that had written the blog about it's location. Let us just say that two of the three components in identification were correct (name and the name of the site) the third component (Michelle herself) kind of makes the hair on the back of your neck come up!!! But "she is praying for me"

I wish I could have been of more help. But I will keep an eye peeled...

Thanks for catching that. Her middle name was incorrectly shown as her maiden name.

RE: Fenton Young
Winnie, I am so glad to here from you. I don't have your email address anymore, for some reason. The last time we 'talked' you had your house for sale and that's the last I know. Did you sell it and has you moved. Write me if you want to.

Im sorry but I only took a picture of this stone and I have no idea who this person is. I at one time had a copy of the Mahon cemetery book and who is buried in it
my great grandparents and ancestors are buried there and I went there from Decatur Ill to take pictures several times.
I have no information on this person other than what the stone says.
Are you relate?
