Feel free to copy information or photos found on my memorials, but please respect the work of others by properly identifying each photo and giving appropriate credit to their contributors and/or origins. Besides - it can really come in handy to have a source to refer back to if questions arise regarding authenticity and/or integrity of said information or photos. ~ Thanks :)|
My rant on the bullies out there...
Most of us are just minding our own business trying our best to pay it forward, but sometimes we run into those persnickety contributors suffering from delusions of grandeur who deem themselves the policing agents for this site. They attack without provocation, list no e-mail, and disable their profile messages in an attempt to allow their "demands" to go unchallenged before proceeding to their next unsuspecting victim. Since addressing their petty issues would prove counterproductive...they may want to consider the following:
First...lighten up and chill. We're not impressed by the "number of years" you've been contributing or the "number of memorials" you create but fail to maintain. Anyone can plug-in bare bones information and create a memorial that's of no use to anyone. We're the community's contributors working daily behind the scenes adding thousands of content edits (that aren't counted) which provide context to the sloppy memorials you rush through. Who cares that you recorded "Bob Smith" in a particular cemetery when you fail to provide pertinent details (available to you at the time) that will help "Bob's" family members find him.
Second...perhaps you should strive for quality over quantity when creating memorials and/or adding headstone photos that increase your total "numbers" but are blurry or illegible.
Third...maybe your time and energy would be better spent tending to the log in your own eye instead of the splinter in others. Critique your own memorials and make sure you're in compliance with "the rules" before you demand that others do the same.

|Bob # 46991349||RE: Archy Family|
Thanks for the confirmation. I only knew Bob from a couple of gym classes we had together. He was 2 years behind me. His brother John was a year ahead of me. I guess he was using his middle name when you knew him. Their family lived way over in the northern part of the Richmond Annex and I lived, and still do, a block south of Sunset View Cemetery. I grew up with Fogertys of CCR fame. Right now people are trying to locate 1966 & 1967 grads for their 50 year reunions. Thanks again and have a great summer.
|Bob # 46991349||Archy memorials|
You have posted two memorials:
1> John David Archy # 142911415
2> Betty Archy # 141737968
Hopefully, you have some connection to their family and can confirm that their son Robert Kent Archy (8/20/1949 - 05/2015) went to El Cerrito High School, probably graduating 1967.
Thanks for your assistance.

I don't think that is the photo I took; mine was a little closer up, so you can give Barb Kumpula credit for the photo. I think she lives in Glenrock and has taken several photos. Betty
|Betty Alberts||RE: James Quillen|
Thanks for the reply. I will delete mine. Betty

Postkrispykritters, (what a cute name),
First off I love your profile rant. I have my own person that lives in Frederick, Md. who refuses to make any changes to memorials, refuses to transfer them to family members and writes back angry threatening responses. I wrote to Find A Grave and sent them a copy of her email to me. I notice that they have taken over management of many of the memorials she had put on. I am so glad I wrote them!!!
Now on to The Edward Soper story. Isn't that really something. Through Ancestry.com, a very nice person copied all of the newspaper articles on him and mailed them to me. That just goes to show how the good people outnumber the bad. But, anyway, what a wealth of information that I wouldn't have had otherwise. On top of that, I wouldn't have known he was a serial murderer. He would have just been a birth and death date.
Thanks for completing the memorial for the child. That was very thoughtful and I didn't even think of it.
|Bob # 46991349||RE: Orvel Wayne Chapman|
I forgot to tell you that I also posted a photo to your memorial for Orvel. # 158690529.
|Bob # 46991349||RE: Floyd Shepherd|
You are very welcome.
|Bob # 46991349||RE: Thanks again !!!|
You are very welcome. At least it was inside and not out in rain. I'll also get Floyd Shepherd's new photo tomorrow as it is suppose to be dry and change it out with the old one.
|Carol Frey||Leo William Osborn|
I added the notation to the memorial you requested. Thanks for calling it to my attention.
|Charlotte Hardy||Samuel William Cooper|
Birth: Jul., 1856
Death: Nov. 17, 1931
You have a lovely photo of my great grandfather and I wondered if you are a relative.
Although I use findagrave.com in my family history research, I have just become a member. I do have another son for Samuel and his Find A Grave is Memorial# 74221243 in Yerington, Nevada.
His name is Leo William Osborn.
After Samuel and Susan separated, Leo took his mother's maiden name.
Their sister, Pearl, died young and had the following newspaper account: Pearl Cooper died June 17th after being dragged by her burro while on her way to school near Lake City. Age 13, lived with mother on ranch in Cherry Creek Basin near the gates, 13 miles down Lake Fork from Lake City. Father in Kansas. Survivors: Mother Mrs. Susie Cooper, brothers Leo, Joseph. Pearl was born Apr. 25 1887.
There was no mention of Wesley as he had stayed with his father, Samuel.
Thank you for all the amazing work you do that is such a benefit.
