Helen, we have some duplicate memorials. We seem to have a data to combine and coordinate. Can we work together on this?

Richard Bolander
John Knox memorial
Memorials 85263962 and 61314697 are for the same person. Can they be combined?

RE: Caleb Townsend
The edit is fine; I don't need the transfer unless you just wish to transfer.

There are complete instructions at the bottom of my last message to you.

RE: Caleb Townsend
I'm so sorry for your loss.

From the Find A Grave FAQS page:

How do I transfer a memorial that I manage to another contributor or to Find A Grave to manage and update?
You must be logged in, and you must manage the memorial you are going to transfer. You will also need the other contributor's Contributor ID #. It is next to their name on their contributor page if they did not provide it. If you are transferring the memorial to Find A Grave to manage, the contributor ID # is 8. (If you would like to transfer all of the memorials you have added to a particular cemetery to Find A Grave to manage, please send us an email with your contributor ID # and a link to the cemetery involved, and we can transfer your memorials to Find A Grave for you all at once.)
After you log in, go to the memorial page you are going to transfer. There will be a link on the right side of the memorial page, under the person's name, that says Transfer Management. Click on the link. Add the other contributor's ID # in the box on the Transfer Management of Memorial page that comes up, and click on the transfer this memorial button. NOTE: Once you have transferred the memorial, you will no longer be able to edit or update it.

If you just wish to transfer Caleb's memorial to me, go to and search for Memorial # 60324383 (Caleb Townsend).

At the top right of the memorial, click on Transfer management, and enter my contributor # 47329791.

If you don't know your wife's login, I imagine Find a Grave could help you with that.

Please remove or update the Robbins Memorial that you have ownership to.

There are no Sources and Records that THESE folks ever lived and died.

This is so unfair to New Robbin Researchers looking for their Robbin Ancestors

Charles H Hollcraft / 123823380
Jim & Helen:

I thought you might care to know that I recently created memorials for the Charles H Hollcraft family. As you manage the memorial for Charles' Greatgrandfather Jeremiah Kimbrough and mention on your page that you research the Hollcraft family, I would like to offer to transfer these memorials to you. Just click on the edit tabs for Charles / 123823380, Mary / 123823382 & May / 123823377 and ask.

RE: Ruby Alexine Pitts
Errors are made, no need to apologize. You corrected it immediately & that is wonderful. I'm not related to the Pitts, I'm just a photo volunteer.
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I pray the love of God enfolds you during your journey through grief. May all your memories bring you comfort now & the days ahead.

God Bless,
S. Stanfield

RE: Richard Robbins of Rowan NC
I'm sorry to hear of the death.
I was just wondering how there can be graves for these folks and from my research they appear to be made up and never lived and died.

Ian and Mary McGray

Isaac and Ann Bryan

Richard, Elisha Isaac Jacob William in Rowan Co.
But no records when and where they came to America. It appears that Richard was in Frederick, Va. and then in Rowan by 1754 when he buys land. Elisha had the land survived first and than Richard buys the land in 1754.

Are these just Memorial to the Robbins and no graves have been found. It seem so many people claims these folks as their Ancestors but how can that be without some type of Sources.

There must be a 100 family tree on Rootsweb and basic all the same. No Source!

I'm lost for words to understand what this is all about on these Robbins and appears to be so unkind
for new Robbins researchers, looking for their Robbin line.

Would you be so kind to share your SOURCES for the proven children of Richard Robbins and wife
of Rowan Co NC

Also the marriages of Richard Robbins when he married and what County in North Carolina.

Thanks for your help.

Are you kidding me ??
I just looked at the Isaac Robbins memorial on your page - - those are MY PHOTOS !! How dare you take my photos without asking me ?!!!!

You have until tomorrow morning to remove, or Find A Grave is getting an email from me.

You are STEALING - - copyright infringements, surely you have heard of this, correct ?

Geeez - - - now I have to go through all my other lines that have sprung from this line to see if you have did this with any of my other ancestors, too !
