Bio and Links

on the edit tab, you'll see this menu, click on the link, and fill in the blank. This submits the information so I can do a one click approval of your request. This is a new feature, and with volumes of requests, I find myself needing you to do this part of the work.

Birth and death dates and locations
Burial information
Burial plot
Marker transcription
Interment note
Relationship information

Corrections and bio information will be added if you send it to me. Generally I do the edits the same day you send them to me. I get so many that I generally don't reply, but rest easy - I will do them.
I'll absolutely transfer memorials to relatives - I firmly believe that relatives should control their family's memorials. I generally extend the transfers to the slightest family relationship, going way past Find A Grave's rules.
I generally don't honor non-family requests. If you want to customize a friend's memorial, please do so - you don't need to control the memorial to add pictures and information. If its something that I have to add, edit or link, I'm absolutely cooperative for these things.
To the "memorial collector" types - if you are a solid contributor who volunteers your time taking photos and adding records, you would get special consideration on non-family requests.
Thank-you to those of you who have gone the extra mile for me. I respect and admire you for taking the time to do a favor for my family and I.

Clay Roberts
Dear Dirk, Thanks so much for your hard work. I made a mistake submitting an edit...sorry! I mistakenly added Clay Roberts to himself as spouse instead of to Annie Crenshaw Roberts. Again, apologies, Marian Crenshaw Austin

Cedar Hill Cemetery
I noticed that you had taken the photo of the cemetery that is shown for it and was wondering if you still lived in the Ozona area. There are many photo requests for memorials there where my dear friend, Tessie Broadfoot is buried along with her husband. I was just trying to think of a solution. Thank you.

M Qualline
Mr. Bailey,

re: Mary B Qualline

I was in the Oklahoma Cemetery in Montgomery county, Texas today. I have a picture of the headstone, the same headstone that you supplied a picture of. However, I could see the dates today and it shows that Mary B Qualline was born in 1877, not 1907. Do you think that this may not be the M Qualline that the searcher was hunting for? They supplied a 1907 date.

I hesitate to edit anything because of the confusion.

If you can give me your email address I would be glad to send you the picture.

Hi Rick, Regarding your email suggestion. I don't have a wife listed for him, but seems likely. I will do some searching. Barb

New Bayview Cemetery/Yocum
Hi Dirk, I would greatly appreciate it if you would transfer your Find A Grave record of John William Yocum. # 40464547, to me. His mother, Viola Lanier, was my great aunt. I live in California, but was able to travel to Corpus Christi and visit this cemetery. Many thanks to you for providing the memorial information that made my visit so successful. Best regards, Ruby #47138188

RE: George F Lemmerman - Crown Hill
I looked back through my photos and I do not have one for Marian. I checked at the office to see if she might be in an unmarked grave but the only record for Lemmerman is George.

Sorry I could not help to find her.

Frank Orr
Frank was my grandfather. I am named after him. He was born 17 April 1877 Louisa County, IA. His parents were William Walker Orr (B: 17 Apr 1826 McMinn Co., TN & D: 8 Aug 1913 Louisa Co., IA). W.W. married Sarah Jane "Janie" McCarney 31 August 1869 Louisa Co., IA. They had 10 children, with Frank being their 5th. Sarah Jane was born 1847 in Louisa Co., IA. She died 12 March 1900 in Columbus City, Louisa Co., IA. WW & Janie are buried Columbus City Cemetery, Louisa Co., IA.

WW was the son of William (B: 20 Dec 1784 Washington Co., TN - D: 1831 McMinn Co., TN) and Mary "Polly" (Walker) Orr (B: 17 Dec 1789 Cumberland, PA - D: 2 February 1873 Louisa Co., IA). They married 11 Dec 1806 Blount Co., TN.

Polly's parents were John & Mary (Rowen) Walker. John Walker born 1747 Ireland & died 6 Aug 1837 Blount Co., TN. Mary born 1756 & died 12 Nov 1845. Both buried Big Spring Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Friendsville, Blount Co., TN

Janie was the daughter of John and Sarah McCarney both of whom were born in Ireland.
