Thank you for the Clayton Collins transfer, The bio info and links have been added. I appreciate your help and consideration. :)
It's 11421483, and unfortunately is not as complete as yours. I did send her an edit with the cemetery and DOB, but she hasn't done it yet. Perhaps you could get the Admins to merge the 2 memorials, as yours is better.
Someone else left her a message on her profile page asking if she was still active because their edits have not been taken care of.
I'd say contact the admins & see if they even know if she's still around. If not, they'll merge the two and give them to you.

|Clinton Slayton||RE: A pattern of abuse (not by you)|
I would urge you NOT to xfer to either of these people.
I will happily accept a xfer since I have been studying these families for over 20 years and have an online database of my research that is open to the public on RootsWeb, but I am a One-Name Study person; the REYNOLDS are not related to me, but to a line that I have been studying since 1988 and continue to study after DNA shows that there are separate DNA strains among these surnames.
This abuser, Amanda Stauffer-Bragg has been reading a book about this family and allied families since SEPT 2013, much of which is boilerplate genealogy from a man who wanted to SELL BOOKS. Another family member copied-and-pasted his stuff into what is otherwise a collection of family anecdotes with little genealogical information (I own the same book).
This is not the first image that she has appropriated from other's work. She has taken down her PUBLIC message board on F A G because of this. She states that because she has a book about HER FAMILY she has rights to anything that she deems helpful, but will create a duplicate mem or UNKNOWN burial mem ON PURPOSE because she wants to LINK them.
I certainly have images created by others on some of my mems but they were explicitly permitted or in the public domain.
hi, lesa, me again. i found today that you have my g-g-g grandmother ernestine emmaline wallace williams page. might you please transfer her to me? thank you, again, for all your help.
|Clinton Slayton||A pattern of abuse (not by you)|
I would advise you to be wary of transferring images related to the SLAYDEN or REYNOLDS family, only because these are being reposted in the WRONG cemeteries, or are being duplicated with YOUR images.
This was done at memorial 37166900 and 37166665. I requested that the poster of this delete the duplicate memorials, they contained images that had been taken from your memorials with your name on them. At the time of this writing, the image from one has been removed, but the memorials are still there. They DO have date precedence over yours, they were posted in May 2009, but your postings from Aug 2009 are in the correct cemetery and I assume that you took the images yourself. F A G guidelines specifically prohibit them from creating UNKNOWN burials for the sole purpose of LINKing memorials.
Please correct me if I am wrong as to the source of your images.
There is a pattern of stealing images and creating unnecessary duplications for the sole purpose of LINKing individuals on Find A Grave, and leaving sentimental messages, with no interest in accuracy, by folks who are taking the names from a book and not consulting F A G guidelines or checking for duplications before creating these.
Do you know where the Wofford Cemetery in Stewart County is located? I'll be in Tennessee soon and would like to stop by there. I can't find it on a map!
