IMPORTANT NOTES AND SUGGESTIONS FOR NEWBIES:|
I am not sure if you are aware, however, please check the edit tab (TOP RIGHT) on your profile page. As that is where any new SAC (Suggest A Correction) are going to appear.
I love to see the memorials come alive with biographies and family history....and photos of our loved ones. I just LOVE it when I can help someone!!!
I have been researching some of my families since about 1978.
From one of the stones: "As you are now, so once was I, As I am now you soon shall be"
"A person's life was more than the dash between years...." That dash represents your entire life and we need to live it wisely.
From my mother: "Bad deeds and words will follow you all your life and come back to haunt you."
My grandmother went to cemeteries with me, and once said she would like the following to be on her stone: "WE LIVED TOGETHER, WE LOVED TOGETHER AND NOW WE REST TOGETHER". I will be fulfilling that request soon.
KEEP IN MIND THAT WE ARE ALL VOLUNTEERS HERE AT FINDAGRAVE AND WE SPEND OUR OWN TIME AND MONEY TO TRY TO HELP AND PLEASE SOMEONE. IN A WAY WE ARE LEAVING OUR OWN LEGACY FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. IT IS TRULY A LABOR OF LOVE.
PLEASE KEEP REQUESTS, REPLIES AND COMMENTS CIVIL AND NICE…KINDNESS GOES A LONG WAY!!!!!!
WHEN IN DOUBT GO TO YOUR CONTRIBUTOR PAGE OR MEMORIAL AND CLICK ON "HELP WITH FINDAGRAVE"
A HELPFUL REMINDER: DO A SEARCH TO SEE IF THERE IS A DUPLICATE. SOMETIMES ANY MIS-SPELLING OF A NAME/SURNAME WILL SHOW NO RESULTS, WHICH WILL THEN RESULT IN A DUPLICATION. An example would be "BILBERRY" vs "BILBREY". Search both spellings. Some of these are the same family, but some of them changed their names from one spelling to the other. Use what the headstone says if you have a photo, then you can make a note in the bio to explain.
Requesting a transfer through the Edit feature insures that no mistakes are made because it takes me to the EXACT memorial you want plus it provides me with all the numbers I need to complete the transfer or add information. I manage too many memorials to research each one. If I find out later that an edit sent to me is not accurate, I may change it.
PLEASE DO SEND A MESSAGE TO ME IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR SOMETHING NICE TO SAY!
I will be more than happy transfer any memorial page as long as:
The memorial is not MY OWN family or one that I am researching.
AND the reason you are requesting a transfer is NOT to delete it and repost it.
Please do tell me your relationship to the memorial.
ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS:
I try very hard to make additions/corrections in a timely manner to my entries when the information is sent to me. I also try to give SOURCES of information when I can.
USE OF PHOTOS
I allow use of MY OWN photos for your personal use. IT WOULD BE NICE if you give me credit for them.
Photos posted on my memorials by someone else is not included in that statement. Click on the person's name under the photo and you can ask that person for permission to use it.
RESEARCH is not a requirement for entries at findagrave. I do occasionally try to look up information for my entries. I do want them to be accurate. Find A Grave is a great research tool, but it is NOT the goal for findagrave.
THIS IS NOT A PHOTO CONTEST. (I have seen people complain about the photos on some memorials or profiles.)
I try hard to take acceptable photos, but sometimes it just doesn't work out due to the construction or color of the stones. Some stones just will not photograph well due to the type of stone or lighting. If I get a NICE request to re-do a photo I will do so when time permits.
I recorded and submitted the ORIANA CEMETERY, near Peacock, Stonewall Co., Texas in about 1986, which can be found on the internet by doing a search. (It was possibly submitted to interment.net)
The Oriana Cemetery at findagrave is here.
ANYTHING I HAVE LEFT ON FLOWERS HAS BEEN TO ADD INFORMATION AND TO HELP THOSE WHO ARE RESEARCHING, AS WELL AS TO "REMEMBER" THE PERSON LISTED. WHEN I FIND THE INFO WAS ADDED, I TRY TO DELETE WHAT I WROTE. MANY PEOPLE WHO ENTER MEMORIALS REFUSE TO ADD BIOS OR OTHER INFORMATION...FOR VARIOUS REASONS.

|Lynn||John and Ida McCabe|
No, they are not my family. I lived in Wimberley, Texas, for 14 years and started doing genealogy on the first three mill owners (one was Pleasant Wimberley) for the local historical society. I continue to do research for the historical society even though I have moved to Houston. Ida Wilson McCabe was the daughter of Quinna Wimberley, a sister of Pleasant Wimberley. When Pleasant and Quinna's mother died, Pleasant and eight of his brothers and sisters moved to Texas about 1840. They really disliked their step-mother! The story goes that the group convinced Pleasant to go back home to "rescue" baby sister Quinna, even though they were several states away. After her "rescue," Quinna lived with her brothers and sisters until her marriage to James Wilson.

Nancy, thank you so very much for the fantastic photos of the graves of John Thomas McCabe and his wife Ida Clementine Wilson McCabe. I had almost given up! I appreciate all that you do for findagrave.

|Bob Carter||RE: Caledonia|
I'm not a member of Ancestry so can't see the trees. Am too cheap. :-)
If you want what I have on the descendants of Caledonia, just let me know.
|Bob Carter||RE: Caledonia Cooper|
I haven't done much investigating into my Aunt Libby's ancestral lines other than they were in Arkansas and Caledonia "Donia" Alice Cooper (nee Fort) was buried in NM for some reason.
Memorial 51448362 Leo was a clerk in Lordsburg not a doctor. His step son Raymon was my uncle.

|Cass||RE: Murel Cardell|
Thank you, Nancy. You should find an email from me.
Added by Cass on Aug 07, 2014 4:27 PM
We may be related! Murel Eugene "Buck" Cardell was my great-grandfather's little brother. I think it would be very interesting to talk to you about this potentially shared genealogy. Please send a reply if you would like to do so.

Thanks for the info on Gary's. I've updated memorials. Thanks for all the good work you do to preserve the local history in this area.
|Joyce Edgar Phipps||Danny Phipps|
Don't feel bad about bringing this to my attention. I am glad you did. Danny was my husband's 1st cousin. His death really tore up this family for many years, long before I came into the Phipps family. I had the wrong town, Boonsville, so I changed it. I have ask the gentleman that created the first page to please delete his page since I have all the links and information and he has none. Whether he will do this or not, well, we will see. I sure hope so.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
Thank you for answering. I think I figured out Martelia Bilberry. Looked at all the trees and census. She married T.A. Lige Henderson 1891 had two kids, Nettie 1893 & Dexter Henderson 1894. Lige was killed 1896, 1897 she married John C. Ables. They were in Tyler TX 1900, then moved to El Pasco and stayed there. So glad you posted the Bilberry information, so hard to figure it all out.
