Cemetery surveyed: Ashley Family Cemetery (June 2007) This is on private grounds with permission only to enter, no other burial are permitted. These interments are of Florida's infamous and notorious Ashley Gang.

I will post obits on memorials with proper citation. I know some people feel that this info is "private" or "personal" but.... it was PUBLISHED IN THE PAPER FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE. 99% of the time this info is invaluable to genealogists. I have had cemeteries tell me they are private property and those interred there want privacy. If someone truly wants privacy, get cremated and scattered over the ocean, don't put up a huge headstone with your name & dates in flashing lights...... It is like having a huge billboard up on a highway and you are asked not to look at it or read it........SILLY. Taken from Rita Botkin Bomher (#47319873)

SPECIAL NOTE: Due to the high volume of trnsfers I will only transfer via the Find A Grave guidelines. Sorry if I have offended anyone. I do accept information to better enhance bios and links for memorials.

Please contact me on the 'Edit' tab found on top of a memoiral in question.

I recently was slammed by a lady why I haven't made her requests. To everyone out there; I am not attached to my computer. When time allows I do honor all requests.

Thank you for stopping by.

RE: Pletcher
Oh, sorry. I wasn't very clear. Not sure where your information came from about Armstrong county, but I do have access to They did live in Clarion county as per the WWI draft card, 1920 and 1930 census records. By 1935 they had moved to Columbiana county, Ohio as indicated by the 1940 census.

I can't exclude that they may have lived in Armstrong county at some point, but I suspect that someone was confused with Armstrong and Clarion counties.

Hi Shirley,
I am also a direct descendent of John Bybee (6th great granddaughter), so I'm sorry but I will not be transferring his memorial to you.

Hi Shirley. I was reading the bio of Memorial # 15920813, Deputies "Matt" Williams & his partner K-9 German Shepherd "Diogi" that they were a team since the year "2000". Diogi's photo of his headstone reads that he was born Nov. 22, "2002". I thought U may want to know this & correct the error of the year times.

Also, to let U know that you're very much appreciated for the dedication & long hours you've put in the memorials on this "Find A Grave" site. Thank U Shirley. You've been a blessing to many. GOD Bless U & your loved ones always. :-) ~ #237/1 Friday 10:23 PM EST.
