Just a friend!|
Please understand that I have no control over the names, words and dates engraved on stones, written on death certificates or provided in obituaries. I didn't write them. I'm only providing those previously written words to you.
I have been an active contributor on this site for over 14 years, so yes it stands to reason that I have a fair number of memorials that I have entered, added to and lovingly care take even though they may not be a branch of my own family. It's quite possible that if I had not entered the memorial to begin with, you may not have been able to find them.
Individuals using this site need to realize that we are all volunteers and do not need to deal with abusive behavior or rudeness just because we won't make a transfer to someone who has registered two days or two months ago and want every memorial on the site with the surname of Jones. Or a transfer of a memorial of someone who they think just might be a fifth cousin, four times removed of their third ex-husband.
If you are new to this site, PLEASE read the "Frequently Asked Questions" located "HERE". If you take just a moment to familiarize yourself with these guidelines, it will definitely help yours and everyone else's state of mind, blood pressure and headaches. Just a hint, most people will not respond to your liking when bullying tactics are used.
If you will please use the "Edit" tab located on each memorial, I will be more than happy to correct, edit or add information to a memorial that is meaningful. I will not add all of the information from the past ten census records that have been released or any distasteful or disturbing messages.
Please be kind. We all make mistakes from time to time. If I have made a mistake or created a duplicate memorial later than one you have created, please use the "Edit" tab and send me the correction or let me know of the duplication and it will be taken care of quickly.
I will make transfers using the "Guidelines" if they are not a relative of mine. I will transfer your children, siblings, parents, grandparents or great-grandparents. All other requested transfers will be considered if you use the "Edit" feature and state your relationship or intended need for the memorial.
Lastly and most importantly, there are so many absolutely wonderful people that use Find-A-Grave! I am very appreciative for all of the suggested corrections, additional information and photos that have been provided. Please don't allow the rude, abusive and sometimes rather bizarre behavior of individuals to curb your enthusiasm or your want to help others.

I added his three wives to the memorial page, though none of them appear to be in the Find A Grave database.
James Coleman Watkins and Mary Ann Calvert Watkins are my gg-grandparents. I have searched for her grave in Seguin, TX where she died and her father is buried, and San Marcos, where he is buried, with no success

Joan, Please send correction again. Somehow I lost it. It may have been Augusta Borgfeld or Rittimann. I just got a glance of it. Thanks, Beverly

|Judith Lee Howard Shea||RE: Miss Hopkins|
Well, this relation thanks you very much! I'm wiggy to find out what my ancestors looked like, and there aren't enough photos!! or paintings! I wonder if there is a way to just search through people's files for their passports. Of course there is! BTW saw a passport for a previously unknown relative today and you know how they ask for a description of the features? left over from pre-camera days I suppose. It said "Mouth - Ordinary." Now there's a guy that they should replace!! That passport had no photo.
|JudiT||RE: Katherine Cropper Picture|
Thanks! And for the link! I saw others there and also a picture of her sister. I've yet to figure out what became of her remains but I know what she looked like. Also came across a pic of their father today. Pretty good day overall on this fam!! All the best! J
