I will transfer graves if you specificaly tell me how your related, dont ask if you are only going to say he/she is related to me.

Really... don't expect me to transfer graves to you if you are NOT willing to transfer to others.

A portion of the of the memorials listed here are from records which I ran across in research of my own family, and wanted to give them a spot to be remembered as well. Others were given to my by FAG to help maintain after the passing of a dear archivist. I appreciate your help in correcting and improving any memorials I have listed.
If you find mistakes or want me to make additions, please use the edit tab on the memorial to let me know. I will gladly make corrections/additions. Please send memorial numbers when requesting links.

Please observe the livings right to privacy. When posting obituaries with memorials I ask that you not publish the survivors listed unless of course you can verify that all survivors have passed as well.

Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?
You should not copy obituary notices from newspapers to an individual's memorial record unless you have permission from the newspaper to do so or you are the author of the obituary. If the obituary is added to the memorial record, it should list the newspaper and date the obit was printed for example "Published in the Hattiesburg American, Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Internet Edition, April 11, 2007". Please do not include the names of living or surviving relatives in the biography, unless you have their permission. If you do not have permission to copy an obituary to a memorial, you may put a note stating the name of the newspaper and the date the obituary was published.

RE: Van Auken photo
Thank you, I really appreciate it. Didn't want to delete Alberta's memorial although that would have been the easiest thing to do.

Charles F. Van Auten photo
Dear Connie,
Thank you so much for posting the picture of his stone on my memorial, #120526262. Is it possible for you to repost it to memorial #9335811. If not, I can copy it and post it myself and give you credit in the description of the photo. But it will look like I took the photo. You see, I goofed and created a second memorial for Charles F. Van Auken last year, not sure how that happened. I have already transferred the family links to the original memorial and would like to have your photo there as well.

So very sorry for the extra work this is causing.

RE: M. E. Riley gravestone photo
Thanks again for everything! Your map shows that her grave is in the section where we were searching. Now that I know exactly what type of stone to look for, I should be able to find it. I could have sworn we read the inscription on every stone in that section, but still missed it.

The time and effort you've put in are very much appreciated! If I can ever repay the favor, please let me know!

M. E. Riley gravestone photo
Thank you so much for the photo of Margaret E. Riley's gravestone! I was back home in Iowa last week, and spent the day on Tuesday visiting the courthouse, contacting cemetery trustees and clerk (whom I'm related to), and then talking to the person with the records, who generously spent quite a while searching for information. When I learned what section her grave was located in, my husband and I searched, checking every gravestone twice, and still didn't find it. Disappointed, I finally had to give up.

When I received the message from Find A Grave that my photo request had been completed, and could actually see the photo, I was thrilled! Could you tell me where it's located, please? I'd really like visit her grave personally and document how to locate it in my genealogy database.

Thank you so much again!

Ustick memorials
I see you made additions to the Van Deman memorials that I set up. Thought you might be intesterd in the fact that there were several Ustick names on one side of that monument. I am just now starting to make up the memorials for them. Have no idea of the relationship. Ran out of steam last night after doing the Van Deman memorials so continuing on today.

M. E. Manley Beauchamp Riley #7361243
Would you consider transferring #7361243 M. E. Manley Beauchamp Riley to me? My name is Karen Bree and my membership number is 47686245. Margaret E. Manley Beauchamp Riley is my gr-gr-grandmother. I previously had some mis-information and have just recently learned that she is buried in Columbus City. I was born in Washington, and I'm currently back home in Iowa visiting my parents. I plan to spend tomorrow trying to locate and photograph her grave. My mom has given me a large portrait of her, and I would love to be able to add/update information as I learn more about her.

Thank you,
Karen Bree
