Bio and Links
Bio Photo I think this "Find-a-Grave" website is wonderful, and I hope more people will add data to it. Hopefully my input will help someone out there.

I so enjoy finding & visiting the old pioneer cemeteries, where the dates go back to the 1700-1800's.

I'll be more than happy to make corrections and/or add data, make relationship links, etc, but I am curtailing (not stopping) transferring memorials due to a growing misunderstanding of what Find-a-grave is all about.

Please DO NOT not leave me a message of "any kind" without leaving a way for me to get back to you. It makes no sense to do so - it is useless and it will be ignored.

Your "e-mail" must be present in your messages to me.

DO NOT ask for transfers without return contact information either.

I only transfer memorials according to Find-a-grave guidelines so check first before asking please.

TRANSFERS: Per Findagrave regulations:

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. This DOES NOT include aunts, uncles and cousins.

Please do NOT add personal data in the "Leave Flowers & Note" section -- that is NOT what it is for...... send the data to me & I will be happy to add it in the "Bio Section" where it belongs. Thanks!

Another contributor has ask my help in managing some of the memorials he created, therefore if I can be of any help to you with of the memorials he has transferred me let me know. I will be glad to make updates/corrections or links to them.

God Bless!

Check out my memorial below for my beloved kitty "Punky" that crossed over the "Rainbow Bridge" on July 20, 2014. It was such a heartbreak..... I miss her so much.

RE: Gordon grave
Hi Ruth, I want to thank you so much for Transferring William Gordon's Memorial to me. That means so much. I am going to just put one there. I am like you why should I get in trouble when no one claims to know who is taking care of it. It was mowed when I visited last Saturday. So I know someone is responsible for it. Thanks Ruth From Carol Gordon Sellers

Do you have any information about this cemetery, including photos?
My family and I are working to repair it.
Many thanks.

Re: Thomas 'Uncle Tom' Gilman
An extremely interesting article about Gilman! Thanks for sending it. Doesn't sound like he had any family of his own.

Davis transfers
Thanks again, Mrs Wicks. FYI.. Fanie Davis was a Henderson, a direct descendent of the family which the Henderson Hall Plantation in Williamstown, WV. is named after.

Fanie's GG-Grandfather was Alexander Henderson, the father to the original builder of Henderson Hall. You have blessed my day. Thank you.
