When suggesting an addition or correction to a memorial, go to the edit button on the memorial you want updated. This sends a link so all I have to do it click and go straight to the memorial. When sending it other ways I have to click on several links to get to where you want me to go for the correction/update. This is getting really bothersome when I have so many to do a day. This is not the place for corrections/updates. |
I also do not transfer to someone so they can update then they say they will transfer back to me. If you want to type it up I can always copy and paste it in myself. Thanks for the offer but I am a big girl and I know how.
I live in Cedar Co. MO and I am here to find information on my family (Keith, Draelants, Ellerman, Eslinger, Reynolds, Hochstedler) . I will also help people find information they are looking for. Right now I am working on listing all cemeteries in Cedar Co Missouri. Feel free to email me if you have information to give or if you would like for me to find information for you, and if you see I have made an error please let me know so it can be corrected. I am working from a Cedar Co. Cemetery Directory but still there might be mistakes or typing errors.
I do transfer memorials if your related. I think it is really sad that people are here just for numbers, what does that accomplish. I do not really care how your related as long as the memorial goes to a family member. I do not transfer memorials just because you like to collect them because they are ministers, railroader, or anyother people you like to collect, that is not fair to the family members if they want the memorials. And I do not like, when I do transfer a memorial to you that you will delete it and create a new one, HOW RUDE of you. If I feel that is what you will do I will not transfer the memorial. Please let me know how your related, and do not just put that they are in your family tree. I also do not transfer memorials for you to add information then say you will transfer back I am fulley capable of updating memorials myself.
Something I got in an email I thought was funny.
As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a grave side service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's cemetery in the Kentucky back-country.
As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost; and being me, I didn't stop for directions. I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight.
There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch. I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.
The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I've never played before for this homeless man.
And as I played 'Amazing Grace,' the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. Though my head hung low my heart was full.
As I was opening the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I never seen nothin' like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks
for twenty years."
Why can't people just ask for directions?

Sorry I could not help more.

It happens. I have accidentally made mistakes like that.

Thank you for the picture of Luke Wiley's grave marker, that old dilapidated photo must have been all we had.
I really appreciate your efforts and hope that you find all that you seek in your research.

One of Luke's great great grand children.
|Sherry Leverett||RE: Collins and Hall|
Thanks for the kind words. I find it amazing all the hard work you do on Find A Grave; posting the cemetery directories, totally dedicated to getting the photos no matter where they are,and researching all the background work, answering people's requests, etc.
You're the kind of volunteer I'd definitely want on my team! Just let me know if I can help with any other photos in this area, I'm glad to help.
Thank you so very much for the information. I do not have access to Missouri Death certificates so you info was a big help.
Thank you for adding the Rust family grave photos from Wiley Cemetery. I really appreciate your doing so!
