|Bio and Links|
|I add to Find a Grave for the purpose of genealogy - my own or, hopefully, to help someone else find a relative they are looking for - or find one they didn't know existed. |
Definition of "ANCESTOR" - One from whom a person is descended and who is usually more remote in the line of descent than a grandparent. As an example, my 3rd cousin 1x removed does not qualify as my ancestor. Family, yes - ancestor, no.
I've been researching my family off and on since 1980. So....not new at this.
Transfers - Most of the time (but not all of the time), I will transfer family outside the "guidelines" as long as they are not in my family lines or connected to my family. Just ask and tell me your relationship. Please be honest about it and, if possible, don't just say "he's my family" or "he's my ancestor". I'm nosey - I'll probably make an attempt to determine your connection - especially if you're vague.
I might not transfer if it looks like someone is a surname collector or a cemetery collector. I would rather real family have the pages if they ever want them. I will not do out-of-guidelines transfers to those contributors who will not do out-of-guidelines transfers.
When I first started adding memorials I added only relatives and a few others with a close association. In March 2009, I started adding non-family to the site. Please look at my virtual cemeteries to determine who is my family and who is not.
Let me know if you find any mistakes no matter how small they seem - but - please check and make sure you're right before asking me to make corrections.
I have found several of my headstone photos on other websites with no mention of the source or who the photographer was (me). While I don't get too bent out of shape over it, it has the potential of causing problems. So...With the exception of re-using or duplicating my photos on Find a Grave, you have my permission to copy any photos I have added (both headstone and family photos) for personal use or non-profit use on another website. I do ask and expect that you credit where you got them from: CB - Find a Grave Contributor (something to that effect). Hopefully, that will avoid any question as to who the original photographer was - or who copied from who.
If you do copy my photos to another website without giving credit, don't be surprised if you find yourself reported.
Almost all the headstone photos found on the memorials I have added were photographed by me. Several were added through photo request and several I used with permission from the photographers. These are not included in the above permission to use my photos. Please read the captions or who the contributor was before using photos from my pages.
Please check my photos for additional information in the captions - especially if the photo was added to a memorial I did not create.
Please be aware that the family links added to my non-family pages were determined by the limited resources on the internet (family trees, census records, marriage records, etc.) and sometimes nothing more than what seems to be the most likely relationships based on the names and ages of people interred together. I have done little (not zero) extensive research on families that weren't my own.
The quality of my headstone photos can be somewhat disappointing. I need a new camera. Too many of the monuments and stones appear to be either leaning, bowed or pinched on one side when they aren't really like that. Some of the lettering doesn't look as good as it does in real life. Haven't figured out my problem with that. You can read most of the markers in my photos by clicking on the photo to see the larger version.
If you copy information to your family tree as I have added it here, you might want to check back from time to time to see if I have made any corrections or added additional information.

|GreKat||RE: Photos You Added!!!!!!!!|
You are Welcome. Glad that they were helpful. As you can tell I'm new to this site (3 days old)and just learning my way around especially with posting. The Hightower stones were pushed to the side in a pile mixed with those without writing. I'm not a photographer so I really appreciate your comments regarding the tombstone clarity. Most of the time it's just pure luck if the sun will stay where it needs to be til you get the photos all taken. Thanks again.

|Joseph Mann||RE: Hayes photos - Thank You|
I tried to get a shot of the marker behind Joel's, but Joel's is permanently mounted, so it was not possible to move it. I do believe it said Duncan Hayes, as best I could make out.
Joel's was so close to the second marker that I was unable to read the letters. Whoever originally mounted the marker should have taken the ability to read the other marker into account.
|Joseph Mann||RE: Hayes photos - Thank You|
You're very welcome. I am always glad to help.
The grave on the right is white-washed, while the Hayes site has not been painted. The grave on the left has a marble base. The graves behind the Hayes grave have white stones on top of the seal, giving it a snow appearance.
It was overcast when I took the photos, but I can assure you we did not have snow.
I also included photos on the memorials of Cora Hayes and Zephire Goss, who are also listed as interred at that site. Only Joel Hayes has a name marker.
|Kathleen Hill||RE: Cemetery Entries|
Sorry, don't know how long ago you posted this comment. I didn't receive an email about it. I am not offended at all. Problem is that I only learned last week that I had been assigned as being the responsible contact. I now need to learn how to make corrections and changes. Thank you for taking the time and effort to let me know
|Sandi Costa||RE: Joshua hadley|
Found some Hadley info while doing some research for another family. Reference Joshua Hadley. William T. Floyd married Joyce vickers , they had 2 boys, james and david b. . William died and she married Joshua Hadley they had one child who they named Joshua Hadley. He was a deaf mute. When Joshua died she married Hugh mcGuffin.
|GMT||Fountain Pitts McWhirter|
Hello there, and Happy New Year. Fountain Pitts McWhirter is one of my ancestors and I am working on his family. I wonder if you might be so kind as to transfer him over to me so I can add what I have.
Is he related to you? Many thanks for all you do with Find A Grave. His Memorial# 65749908 and my number is 46962786
Many thanks for your time and trouble.

Sorry, I was just wandering and didn't notice what section. The next time I'm out there I'll try to find the section marker.

|Jay||Regarding Lucy George|
Lucy's given name was Margaret Louise George. She was married to Henry G. Zimmerlee. I am not sure if this Mary Ann George is Lucy's mother, Margaret Louise my G Grandmother, was from england. Could you forward to me a copy of the immigration record that you have referenced? Could you also send a copy of the delay birth for John William as well? Yes this is most confusing, we have also hit kind of a brick wall on this. Charles Phillip Zimmerlee was in fact their son, he is my Grandfather. You can also check my ancestry.com tree. My tree is listed as the Zimmerlee, and the Mabry Zimmerlee tree.

|Jesse R. Mitchell||Mannie Lindsay Howell|
I would leave it as Mannie as the memorial and headstone says. A lot of times these newspaper articles misspell names. It's not unusual. If I were you I would make a note it above the OBIT in her memorial that the correct name is Mannie not Minnie as shown in the newspaper article.
|Sandi Costa||RE: Denny P. Hadley|
great if you find the Denny Hadley the bio fits let me know! I am trying to find out where the name Porterfield came in and the two Dennys.
