DO NOT USE MY EMAIL IN THE BIO FOR A SOURCE WHEN ADDING MY EDIT INFORMATION. It adds an incredible amount of spam in my mail due to web robots. "Volunteer 46947920" or my name will suffice nicely.

This was a wondrous site where the upcoming generations can easily find their history and ancestors. Even after we are gone, our work will remain. Thank you, Findagrave.

My tree was done generations ago, thanks to my ancestors. Now my time is spent on documenting cemeteries, research, linking memorials, reuniting families, and connecting the dots; my virtual flowers now represent edits. Quality, not quantity.

We are all simply the guardians of those we have kindly added until their family comes along. I am eager to transfer anyone who is not family to family. BUT, request through the system, not here, not email! Demands will be ignored, "please" is simply common courtesy.

I take my heritage, 'graving' and documentation very seriously and most respectfully. Accuracy is of the most utmost importance to me, not who 'owns' a memorial. If I have made an error, please, please, let me know, politely. If you are rude, I will ignore you.

** I spend over half my time on Findagrave JUST sending edits to admin for duplicates. PLEASE double check before you add a historical person from the 1600's or back. Most likely, they have already been added.

** PLEASE read the FAQ concerning BURIALS UNKNOWN. They are to be used for RECENT deaths only, not your 176th great grandfather whose burial is 'not located yet.' I adhered to the rules, please do the same. I will not link to an unknown burial.

** If your pictures are crooked, of poor quality, out of focus, too dark to read, taken at night, shadowed, or the stone is covered in dirt or weeds, or your finger was in front of the lens, I will add my photo on the memorial. I apologize, I do not intend to offend. It is not out of disrespect for the other photographer, it is out of respect for the deceased and the family who might appreciate a good photo of the stone. Please have the gumption and consideration to post only decent, well thought out photos.

**USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION ON THE MEMORIAL you want updated for updates requests, transfer requests, or general inquiries for ANY memorial, it gives me easy access to the memorial in question, I have entered thousands. I will Ignore and delete suggestions, requests and updates and inquiries left here or in email.

Conflicts for Seth Lincoln
Hi I am attempting to resolve conflicts I see between
# 175609672 (mine) and # 73003306 (yours)

I did check before I added # 175609672, but as the info varies of course it did not show up.

Fine. Please transfer the memorial to me then. Thank you for all your work and effort.

Thanks for checking on that. I would prefer that you just delete the memorial since it is still speculative and I would prefer to create my own based on my own research and photos. Thanks again.

RE: J[essie] Fouts
I had no idea the reasons for declining weren't shared with the person who made the suggestion. Thanks so much for letting me know! I will be sure to follow-up with a message any time I decline a suggestion (I rarely do, but when I do it's for a reason I'm happy to share.)

Thanks again,

I own that photo. It is from my great grandmother's album in my possession. Apparently someone has copied it from FamilySearch or the Findagrave memorial for his wife and posted it on Ancestry.

No, I am not local. But I went through Snelling and Merced several years ago looking for his grave and that was when I found the Pythian cemetery section in Merced and a reference to the Pythian lodge also in Merced. That is why I did not post a grave location for him.

I appreciate your effort and thoroughness. You are correct that there is no headstone for him in Snelling. I too have walked the cemetery. But I was under the impression that Yosemite Lodge was in Merced. And I know there is a Knights of Pythian section in the Merced cemetery; hence my reluctance. How did you/can I verify that Lodge #30 was in Snelling? Thanks again.

You are so welcome, Anne, and yes I will, contact you when/if someone will post the photo.
Thank you

Thank you Anne, I have requested a photo of the stone. I appreciate what you have done and doing for so many others.

What source do you have that Frank Larkin is actually buried in the Snelling Cemetery? Thanks
