Bio and Links
Bio Photo Family history has long tugged at my heartstrings. It has also been a vehicle for meeting "cousins" and new friends as we assist and exchange data. Inevitably, errors occur so, please inform me of any you may discover on the info I have added (and I'm happy to place additional facts...THANK YOU IN ADVANCE! If I have inadvertently overlooked anyone, please know that I am sincerely appreciative of your input.) to this fantastic site directly from that memorial.

Will consider transfer of family members to "per Find A Grave guidelines "(Please contact the Find A Grave member who created the memorial via the "Suggest a Correction" link under the "edit" tab on the memorial in question with your request to have the memorial transferred to you. Please, DO NOT post requests on my Bio page as it is very time consuming to search for those memorials and less accurate. Also include in your request your unique Contributor ID # which is displayed to the right of your member name on your profile page. Transfers: Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. 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, and Great-grandparents. EXPLAIN your Relationship in the request. Any non-direct relatives (Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, etc.) are Not required to be transferred. Keep in mind that the original contributor may also be related to the memorial and may not want to make the transfer. BULK surname requests should not be made. Be advised that memorials listed as famous or maintained by Find A Grave will not be transferred.Please use the original memorial page to make updates and add information.). I will ONLY TRANSFER management of memorials to immediate relatives as defined in the Find A Grave rules...this is their policy. Other requests WILL be ignored. AGAIN, PLEASE USE the "EDIT" and "SUGGEST A CORRECTION". Additional data should not be placed in the flower/token area of the memorial page. I also need an email address, or way to contact you when you send me requests and questions. Many Newbies are not making themselves familiar with site guidelines and sadly, some simply do not care. I'm also very capable of adding data so, please do not ask me to transfer and you'll transfer the memorial pg back to me after you've added more data. The guidelines also state to allow 30 days for updates. Patience is necessary as I have a life beyond this site. In the event of the same memorial listed twice on the same day, please refer to the MEMORIAL number. The lowest MEMORIAL # was the one added first, with the highest MEMORIAL # being the duplicate.

If you find a memorial has been added but has incomplete or incorrect information, INSTEAD OF CREATING A DUPLICATE MEMORIAL use the tools provided to submit corrections, additions or a transfer request via the "Suggest A Correction" link under the 'Edit' tab on the upper right of the memorial. NEVER Deliberately create a duplicate memorial.

Virtual cemeteries are the way to "gather" your ancestors together. I respect all contributors of FAG and do expect the same from them. Also, please keep in mind we are contributing this very important data for future generations so they might continue the wonderful work that we are currently peforming. The focus is assisting others and remembering those who passed before us.

I'm honored to add those who have passed into their eternal life as they should never be forgotten. ALL of these wonderful memorials are NOT related to me as I have added others I "met" while doing research at cemeteries, libraries, or seeking data on the Internet. Feel free to visit and leave floral/tokens/messages. Heartfelt thanks also to my fab ancestors!

Here is a list of our (deceased) Fallen Gravers @ Memorial #33083506 & #33083506. If you have a name to add to the list, please email Cemeterywlker,(#46796033) with a link to the memorial and contributor page.
you may wish to visit and leave a token for.

Thank you
I am afraid I made a mistake. I saw the email you had transferred the grave and when I got on my desktop to respond it was gone. So sorry. Can you try again. I really appreciate you doing this for me. Clarissa

Just back from my MIL's funeral and would like to make a memorial for her. I see you must know the family too. Would you consider allowing me to be in charge of it? Clarissa Stegeman Thank you.

Unmarked graves at Oak Hill-Clear Lake
Would you put me in contact with the person who has the written records of those buried at Clear Lake, Springfield, IL.

I have an ancestor's obit from The Illinois State Journal of 1902 saying he was laid to rest at Oak Hill. His wife is there (Rosella Avery Ketcham) and has a marker, but he - John H. Ketcham - does not.

Whom should I contact that would have the paper records for this cemetery?

Don't transfer the page to me. I want it completely removed you will not get any credit for stealing my father his dignity. I was waiting certain things to occur before I created his page for, I'm my families' genealogist and deeply disappointed you people should wait at least a year or so before posting things as such!

Please remove my father's find a grave page. You have no business in placing his page on this site! You didn't even give the family enough time to grieve! I find this disgusting that all you have to do is wait until someone dies. Just because an obit is in the paper, that doesn't mean you have any right to create such a thing. I will make and manage my father's own Find A Grave page. I just can't believe that people sit around waiting for someone to pass! We deserve more than that! No please remove it! You have no business in entering our families personnel business!
