Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a firm believer that every person, notable or not, should be remembered. I also hope that by posting the auction photographs, a family member may be able to retrieve their ancestors image. If I actually own the individual photograph, please contact me if you are a family member.

If there is a photo attached to a memorial that I placed there, please read the photo description BEFORE contacting me for more information. If you open the photo completely, you will see in the description everything that I know about the photograph and where I found it. I rarely manipulate the portraits. What you see is the same exact thing I found, but sometimes in order to see the face, an image needs to be lightened or darkened.

I don't upload found photographs to make people angry. If YOU have a problem with a photograph posted, and I do make mistakes, simply message me that you would like the photograph removed.

I search various auction sites for identified period photographs and frequently, I purchase many. I also spend a lot of time researching identified photographs in order to place them. I have little patience for Find A Grave collectors. Those members who simply want the most memorials. Particularly those who can't spend the time connecting family links of their own memorials. I have run into a few of those when asking for a transfer and I have been declined. To those people, NO you cannot use any of my photographs.

I have been given permission to post auction photographs from Ebay by a few sellers.

If I currently manage a memorial that belongs in your family, please ask for a transfer. Please include the memorial number and your Find A Grave member number before you send a message. I will transfer memorials, however, if the memorial is a family member of mine, I will have to decline. If you have information to add to a memorial, please use the EDIT tab and do not post a personal message.

I typically manipulate the gravestone photos, that I take. I do this so that the inscription is the best it can be.

River at Empire
Thanks for looking. this was a child-maybe no marker? Unfortunately, all that is on the death certificate is "Empire" for burial.

Norman I will transfer the memorial to you since it isn't a relative of mine. Then you can have the individual photos of the stones also. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Stay warm.

Earle E Andrews (sr)
Norman, after carefully searching every record, I believe that the photo is not my grandfather. The first half of the description is correct, but the second part is not. It is my belief that the photo is of the other Earle. Would you please remove it from my memorial. Thank you, Don

If you Facebook, you're welcome to check out my page: Rescued Family Treasures (the one with 189 Likes. If you find photos that you can attach to graves that you find, you're welcome to do so. You're very helpful by posting the information on how families can locate the originals. That's my hobby & I too have been doing such things since 2002. Thank you should you wish to do this.

Floyd Warner Photograph
Thank you for posting the photo of Floyd on this Find A Grave page. I now have the photo and have posted this on Rootsweb. My goal is to place it back in the hands of family and only ask to be reimbursed my expenses. If you wouldn't mind editing the description with the photo, directing people to me, Rootsweb or my facebook page: Rescued Family Treasures, I'd appreciate it. Kathy L. Barnes, Find A Grave#47040479

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 86869640
The SUVCW custom token that we place on memorials has two purposes: First, it honors the veteran's service to our country and, second, it tells us in the SUVCW that there is a corresponding entry on our database. Unfortunately, until Private Gleason is confirmed by a unit roster or some other document as having been buried in a particular cemetery, which can include burial in that cemetery as an "unknown", he cannot be listed in the SUVCW database because even the general location of his grave is not known. The purpose of the database is to list grave locations of Union veterans, not just their service.
However, if you can provide documentation of the general location of his grave, such as in Annapolis National Cemetery, we will happily list him on the database and post a custom token on his Find A Grave memorial page.
Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
Best regards,
Dave T.

Yesterday, you declined my corrections for AnnA Elizabeth DAGGS Shaw. Anna WAS
my 3rd great grand mother and the correct last name was Daggs, regardless of
what your information is. The surname came from my grandfather, who's mother
was Emma Jane Shaw. Thank you.

The maiden name has been corrected. I do decline corrections if I have different info unless others can show mine incorrect.

I have had requests for changes that, after I have given them the source[s] of my information, were for the wrong person. And the persons requesting the change agreed.

The site should be as correct as possible.

In fellowship,
