I have sent several emails concerning this memorial being placed in the wrong cemetery. There are two Salisbury National Cemeteries. The older, "Civil War Prison" cemetery has been filled and all new burials are placed in the Salisbury National Cemetery Annex.
I notice you are not around here and would not know the difference.
I have sent a notice to the administrators of Find A Grave to have the memorial moved. I first contacted you back in September with several follow up emails. No response.

Avoiding Duplicates
Unlike genealogical sites, where everyone is invited to built and maintain their own familytree, this is a grave registration site primarily and (as a side effect) aids in people's genealogy.
Read through the site's rules: One memorial per person. This is a community effort site, meaning one person could add a memorial, another one comes along and maybe adds a photo or has some additional information to add to a memorial. This cooperation helps to enhance the content of a memorial, so that we can honor those who walked before us.

Before we add a memorial to the site, we MUST check whether it does not already exists. If it does, we can add to it or make correction suggestions using the EDIT function. Or even add photos (per site's guidelines). There are also rules in place who can or should maintain a memorial. We all agree to transfer family members who are closely related to the requester: Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

If you add a memorial that doesn't exist yet and were wondering about a photo, you can click on the "request a photo" on the right side of the memorial, and one of the volunteers might be able to get it for you. You should research where the location of the grave is, lit section and plot numbers, you can not expect a volunteer to walk a cemetery for weeks trying to find one single grave somewhere.

See here for the site's rules:

RE: Archambeau & Solitto Lines

My grandmother was an Archambeau, married to a Solitto. You may add photos to their memorials. Than you.

RE: Vandewalker family.
You are most welcome. I don't live in New York. I will contact a friend and see if I can get the stone photographed for you. If I ever come across the wife's obit I will post it. Good luck to you in your research. - Robi

RE: Saint Marys Cem. Bvill,N.Y.
I have already photographed that headstone and uploaded it to the memorial, so Im not sure what you are requesting. If you can let me know what you are looking for, I can go back and photograph it again.

RE: The Piston line
I'm aware of the Piston connection because I have spoken with one of them who has since passed away. Thank you for the offer but I am not interested in the court records.

photos need to be croped
just noticed. When you add photos to the memorials, could you please crop them to size before you add them? Thanks
