SPECIAL NOTE: Due to the high volume of transfers I will only transfer via the Find A Grave guidelines. When requesting transfers please indicate relationship.

I recently was slammed by a lady why I haven't made her requests. To everyone out there; I am not attached to my computer. When time allows I will honor all requests.

Thank you for stopping by.

Dear Shirley,
You have a lovely memorial for Judge Bumgarner, but you have him in the wrong cemetery. He is buried in the Hoyle Cemetery, which is located adjacent to the Friends Cemetery. Could you please relocate him?

Shirley, As a volunteer I know you're extremely busy. Thank you for your time.

This gentleman is attached to my family tree, I was wondering if you would input the additional info I have. I'm not a family member so I don't necessarily want this transferred to me. However this is what I have: James Albert McCombs B) 8 Dec 1901 Nelsonville, Athens, Ohio D) 24 July 1985 Vero Beach, Florida. Father: John William McCombs #128003754 Mother: Pearl Edith Delong McCombs #128004466.

Again thank you,
Joy Kettell Clarridge

Shirley Bybee,

Thank you for transferring to me the Find A Grave memorial for my great-aunt Elsa Florence ‘Elsie’ Sowers (maiden name West) (Memorial # 27827359). I will begin adding to it so that her descendants and relatives can know about her and her resting place. Keep up the excellent work!

Hi Shirley,
I am also a direct descendent of John Bybee (6th great granddaughter), so I'm sorry but I will not be transferring his memorial to you.

Hi Shirley. I was reading the bio of Memorial # 15920813, Deputies "Matt" Williams & his partner K-9 German Shepherd "Diogi" that they were a team since the year "2000". Diogi's photo of his headstone reads that he was born Nov. 22, "2002". I thought U may want to know this & correct the error of the year times.

Also, to let U know that you're very much appreciated for the dedication & long hours you've put in the memorials on this "Find A Grave" site. Thank U Shirley. You've been a blessing to many. GOD Bless U & your loved ones always. :-) ~ #237/1 Friday 10:23 PM EST.
