Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have put a great deal of time into creating many of these memorials. I am continually researching the memorials that I've created and often find more things to add. If you have some information you'd like added, let me know.

Please read the Find a Grave policy to see whether your request qualifies a transfer. If it falls within the guidelines, then, please use the EDIT button on the top right of the person's memorial page when you want to request a transfer since it provides me with the link to that memorial.

Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.) will not be transferred. The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

I am more than happy to have anyone add their personal photos of people on a memorial. However, I discourage adding death certificates and genealogy material in printed form out of a book.

Addition Information Add Request
Hi, I am relative of the baby named Sharla Diane Howell. I am not requesting ownership of it since I am only a cousin, but I wondered if you would please link her family to her memorial page. I feel as though she was left out and since she was a baby is probably unknown to many researchers without the link. This is a direct link to her father Jimmie Howell,her mother Edna Howell, 2 of the brother who have also passed named Robert & Michael.

James Garrett Sadler
Are you a great grandchild of James Garrett Sadler and Rebecca Rumble Sadler? Are you following the guidelines of FindaGrave? Really disappointed that you "opt" not to transfer to the actual gr-granddaughter. Cindy Bowers Boyer

Mary Berdell Spencer
Mary A. Helmick is the daughter of Michael Finley Helmick & Mary E. Fairchild Helmick. She married Everett Arthur Berdell in 1899 and later married a Mr. Spencer. I think it is John T. Spencer but don't have any proof. I don't know where Everett Berdell is buried.

Thank you for your entries on Find A Grave, truly appreciated.

Hi - a group of Find A Grave members is working through a list of memorials which contain invalid characters in the name fields. We have found 65 of your memorials using dashes (-----) to represent an unknown name. The FAQ specifies that an unknown or unreadable name should be represented by the word "Unknown" (without quote marks).

We can send edits for all 65 memorials for you to accept and process. If you would rather work through your list manually, you can do that by using the search box on your profile page and entering a single dash in the last name field.

Please let us know how to proceed by replying to this public message. Thanks!

Mattie Coan McCreary
Hello! I was just adding photos to La Rosa Cemetery in Woodsboro, TX, and I added one for Mrs. McCreary. I didn't realize you had a photo request for it. I want to apologize for the blurry photo. It was cold and rainy last weekend when I snapped the picture, so I was a bit rushed. I get down to Woodsboro about once a month, so I'll make sure to take a nicer photo and update Mrs. McCreary's GPS coordinates on her memorial during my next visit.

Best wishes,
