There is illness in my family right now. So give me a week at least to try and catch up. It is still fine to go ahead & ask for transfers & updates through the individual memorial edit button. Just know I do not have much free time just now.

If you are a closer relative than I am & would like a transfer, don't be afraid to ask.
I do NOT strictly adhere to the Find A Grave guidelines regarding transfers.

I want to make this more of a family record, than just a cemetery record. On newer records I've tried to keep it more to a minimum. I believe these are for the closer family to decide.

For the generations that came before us & those that will come after us.

A work this large could not be done without the help of others.

I would especially like to thank Karen K.
The cemeteries around Stumptown in Union Township would not be the same without her.

PLEASE if putting flowers on the memorial of the plain people...PLAIN flowers. They led the simple life for A reason.
A few of the young men were drafted & served in the medical corp during the Civil War..again PLEASE simple flowers
ALSO they do NOT celebrate birthdates or death dates of the dec'd
NOR do they celebrate Halloween
ALSO they do NOT have "pictures" of Jesus or angels in their Bibles or in their homes

I do NOT put a military prefix on the name, unless close family wishes that.

Do keep in mind, that the last name of a married woman etched on a stone, may not be the last name that she had when she died.

If you ask for a middle name to be added to a stone & it is not on the memorial stone or on an obituary that you have sent to me to read...
I am NOT going to change it. That is for closer family to decide. That is what they choose for the memorial & that is how it stays.

The same is true for a memorial name. If the stone says William & you want me to change it to John William Doe. Please read the above paragraph.

There are exceptions to the rule on individual basis.

Also note that I have chosen to not put a period after the K on Linda K, the same is true on the memorials. Unless close family would decide to have the change.

Again there are exceptions on an individual basis.

All mistakes are mine & mine alone.

Jeff Gonyea had on his profile the following:

"We don't "own" the memorials we manage - they are not ours. We may create them, we may update them, we may transfer them to others - we are but stewards. They are Find A Grave memorials of human beings, departed.

They are not "friends" on a social media network website to be collected like baseball trading cards. And there's no prize for the one who dies with the most.

The reward (for me) comes from maintaining the most accurate and dignified memorials I can. What we record becomes history, and a record in someone else's family tree. We have a responsibility to do a good job of it. It's a privilege and honor."

Thank you for taking the time to read this

Thank you for the transfer! That was nice!
If any of his family contacts me, I will of course transfer it to them. None of this would have been possible without your work. A sad ending for the gentleman, as evidence from the news article you so graciously sent.
With Great Appreciation,

Casper Stump's parents
Hi Linda ... I received a correction from you for Casper Stump (1786-1837), FAGMemorial # 54598957, in Moultrie Chapel Cemetery, Moultrie, Columbiana County, Ohio, that his parents are:

Adam Stump (1759-1835) & Catherine Deiss Stump (1754-1816)

I am wondering what your proof of these parents are ????

My email address is

Thank You, Jan Sanford
