Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a great-grandmother who started family research about 1990. I have pretty much completed the family histories of myself and my husband, but once in awhile a new relative shows up, and that is always exciting.

Find A Grave has been a valuable resource for me, and I like to contribute whenever I can, hopefully to provide information for other researchers.

I am not in a race to compile a large number of memorials. I try to find and add information that makes the memorials more meaningful, and I am always grateful for further information from contributors.

I may or may not adhere to the Find A Grave guidelines for transfers, depending on the individual circumstances. I do not understand the mind-set of those contributors who insist on following the Find A Grave "rules". If your person does not appear as a leaf on my family tree, there is a good chance that I will transfer, so ask .... However, you need to know that if you request a transfer, I will take a look at your contributor history, and if it appears all you are doing is collecting the work of other contributors, I will probably decline your request.

RE: Helen Fykerude
A few years ago a couple of photographed all the markers at Fern hill and the other cemetery along HWY 4. It is possible we missed a few but I have no way of checking. I do not live near there and I am yet to ever get hold of anyone at the cemetery.

I'm glad I posted the info, also. This cemetery is one I recently started to photograph. I live about 90 minutes away. I'll try to find his marker if there is one.
Best wishes,
Alice

RE: Hibbs Cemetery
There are actually two cemeteries with the same name in Fountain County.

Hi Darlene.

I did NOT create the cemetery.

There is already a pending edit on this.

The sarcasm/dictionary lesson I will leave alone.

Charles H Caverly
I found a listing of the burials at old Grassy Creek Cemetery that had both listings. I now oticed that the listing was a composite of three individual listings of headstones made in the "1960s, 1970s and 1984". The Charles H Caverly had a page reference while the Harvey Caverly did not. I have removed the unreferenced "Harvey Caverly".

Now comes the big question. Is Charles H Caverly really buried in Fairview Cemetery OR Old Grassy Creek where he was living (and died) and a member of the Presbyterian Church associated with OGC cemetery??

RE: James Cowley duplicate
"However, your second message "but this is still a duplicate. Please delete." is condescending & demanding."

How else should it be worded? You created a duplicate memorial (obviously without checking first as the name & death date are identical on both memorials). You should have deleted your duplicate and submitted an edit request to add other information to the original memorial. Instead, you chose to request a merge, causing unnecessary work for staff, and causing me to still be involved in what should have been a quick and uneventful resolution.

And I'm the one with an attitude.

RE: James Cowley duplicate
The first time I wrote to you this memorial listed the place of burial as "Kansas City Western Dental College - See Western". It is now listed as Unknown, thus the reason for my second message to you. If you had COMMUNICATED with me the first time you wouldn't still be hearing from me. I made no "demands" ... that's apparently your attitude playing tricks on you.

RE: Various edits
Having worked for the TNT for years, I can tell you why. It's about money. Newspaper obits cost the moon. The funeral home allows tons of verbiage as it is included in the 'package.' However, if you go to various sites, like New Tacoma Cemetery, you, the guest of the deceased, are encouraged to light a candle ($$), order flowers, and visit the online funeral store. At least findagrave is free - unless you buy a $5 sponsorship, which is a deal in my book.
