Since the Fall of 2012 I've been getting quite an education concerning the excuses people make for entering Burial Unknowns where disposition of the remains is unknown and unlikely to ever be known. THEY DO NOT BELONG HERE ON FIND A GRAVE. PERIOD! EXCLAMATION POINT! It's called Find A Grave for a reason. Since then I no longer make transfers to people with lots of BUs, because of the problems that would result when known burials are linked with the Unknowns, and the Unknowns eventually get deleted. In April 2013 I came up with a new term to describe the worst offenders: LURKERS! They add hundreds of memorials from obituaries, and leave them lurking as BUs. Then, when someone finds and legitimately makes a memorial IN THE CORRECT CEMETERY, the Lurkers "move" theirs (by editing the burial info) and then ask/tell the other person to delete their duplicate.|
But the vast majority--probably over 95%--of Find A Grave Contributors are helpful folks who woudn't even think of bending any of the rules, much less breaking them. Sadly, the extremely small minority who insist on doing whatever they feel like doing are no doubt causing most of the problems for the Admins to have to work out.
A big "Thank You" goes out to everyone who sends any info and links for the memorials I've added. I regret that I cannot thank each of you individually.
I got interested in Family History in 2007, and in 2008 and 2009 visited hundreds of my "dead relatives", as my wife so descriptively put it. (I did meet many live ones, too.) Most of the graves I visited were close relatives of my great-grandparents and one great-great-grandmother: their siblings, aunts and grand-aunts, uncles and grand-uncles, and first and second cousins.
My grandparents are:
Harold James Minteer
Ethel Lorene (Wright) Minteer
James Francis Renshaw
Mildred Joan (Woods) Renshaw
My e-mail address:
(That's RNRMinteer, which won't matter if you Copy and Paste...)
Feel free to use any of my grave marker photos any way that you want to, as few (if any) of them have any artistic value which might be covered by the intent of the Copyright clause in the Constitution.

|Bernadette||Re: David W Ackerson in Kenyonville Cemetery|
The memorial that was moved into this cemetery is the dupe. The fact that the listing was created earlier is irrelevant since it had been placed in the wrong cemetery.
|Sarah Ashley||RE: Sward photos|
|Sarah Ashley||Hulda, Art, Emil and Minnie Sward - Mt. View Cem|
Thank you for placing Hulda Sward's photo on Findagrave! I wanted to let you know that Hulda's three children are also buried in the same cemetery. I'm not sure how to link them to her profile but if you are capable of doing so, it would be wonderful!
Hulda Sward's children are Minnie Sward (she never married), Arthur Sward (buried next to his wife Alice), and Emil Sward.
Her grandson Warren Sward (son of Arthur Sward) is buried in Stricklin Cemetery.
|Margaret||Transfer of Pefley entries|
Thanks for the transfer of Daniel, Donna and Jennie Pefley on the Mountview Cemetery site. I have added additional information and appreciate your original entries. Is it proper to delete the one for Daniel and Jennie that you entered as they are duplicates since I have added those. Will look for a photo for Donna Pefley and believe someone has claimed the request, so will add her information to your entry. Thanks again.

My info is a bit thin going this far back but I don't think there is a 30 yr age difference. At this point I'd say wait until I can get a bit more info on them before you go ahead and link them
Thank you! The summary you gave me makes sense to me and will help me begin my adventure/contributions here.
Yes, please transfer him! If I find out that this is the wrong uncle, I'll find out how to correct it. But I'm 99.9% sure it is him.
I really appreciate you help.

Hi, I sent you a message on that entry, not about the memorial but about something else, just wanted to direct your attention to it there.
|Ankhes||RE: Harry W Martin|
You are so kind and I really appreciate the offer! However, I show as a member here for about 5 months, but am just now really being able to compile some info about my ancestors.
I don't know yet how to navigate this site and what "transferring" means here. I mean, I know what the word means, but as to how to utilise it here so I can add some info - I don't know how just yet.
If you are open to it, can I ask you later when I know what I'm doing? *embarrassed* :) Or, if you are also open, but please don't feel pressured at all, can you add me as a friend? If not, that's okay, really. :)
I am almost 100% positive that Harry W Martin is the correct Harry W Martin in my family. But his grave inscription as "Son" is puzzling, as well as the lack of his wife or daughter/s being near him. But all other info I have leads me to believe that he is the right man.
I'll get on the task of learning how to navigate around here and how transferring works.
I really appreciate your kind offer and your response to this FindAGrave newbie.

I have moved all the Ackersons to Kenyonville Cemetery. Did you want all of my entries moved from AKA Kenyonville to Kenyonville. If you have already entered the rest it would be easier to delete my entries. They are not relatives of mine.
|ptruzzi||RE: your family's memorials|
You can transfer any or all of them. I'm related to them in one way or the other.
