Thank you for sponsoring Eva's memorial. If she is related to you, could you let me know so I can transfer her to you? She is not related to me, so I'd be happy to transfer her to your care.

RE: Moses Cone
Thanks for helping get the Cones recognized as famous. I live about 10 miles from the Moses Cone Estate where he is buried.
I still have hope for Claribel and Etta. Certainly their collection is one of the most famous in the world.
Ten votes are required in order to get and "official" ranking. Your vote is a big help in getting this accomplished. I'm going to get my Find A Grave friends here in the NC mountains to vote as he is a "Local" guy.
It is getting harder and harder to get someone recognized as famous. I've had seven accepted, another couple on provisional, but about 10 rejected. This web site started as a celebrity find the famous grave in southern California. Then it grew larger and larger. When I first began six years ago almost anyone could be accepted as famous, especially minor politicians. Just had the Lieutenant Governor of NC rejected. Sometimes just don't understand. Earlier had rejected the US Navy Admiral in charge of the first bombing of Hanoi. So, I just submit them and see what happens.
Thank you for helping with this.

Moses Cone
Hello James,
Thank you for sponsoring so many of the Cone family.
I have a favor to request. Last night Find A Grave accepted the Memorial for Moses Cone as famous. However, ten responses are required for this to be official.
Could I ask that you visit his memorial and mark one of his stars at the bottom of the page to rank him.
Your help is appreciated.

Cone sister
You have sponsored the Cone Sisters at Druid Hills. Would you be so kind as to return to their memorials and give them a "Fame" mark. I am trying to get them recognized as famous because of their contribution to the Art world with the Cone Collection at the Baltimore Art Museum.

p.s. 10 votes are required to completely be recognized as famous. so far they have not been rejected.
