PLEASE: If you're going to copy my family photos and add them to your website or Ancestry tree, credit me as the person who shared the photo. I have been deterred from sharing photos on Find A Grave the past couple of years because of regularly finding my contributions added to Ancestry and private websites without any credit to me. The same goes for headstone photos. I try to only add memorials to Find A Grave if I have a reliable source (cemetery index, obituary, funeral record) that states a person is buried there, with occasional exceptions. I will always try to provide a source when requested.|
I will transfer memorials to people I am not closely biologically related to if requested through the Suggest Another Correction tab as long as you are more closely related to that person than I am, with the possible exception of a direct ancestor (if they are my 5th great grandfather, and your 3rd great grandfather, I will likely want to hold onto the memorial to contribute my own research, but I will gladly add your information if you wish).
I am always eager to exchange information and especially PICTURES of my ancestors, primarily those in my direct line or biological aunts and uncles. Feel free to contact me about that.
Surnames in my direct lines include Marks (Loudoun, VA, Dallas, TX), Vaughan (Pope, AR, Pittsburg, OK), Martin (Baxter, AR), Moose, Barnett (Breathitt, KY), Clements (Washington, KY), Auston/Austin, Jay, Baker (Grayson, VA), Eversole, Rorie, Cowan, Waller, Binkley, Sain, May, Downing, Patton, Bennett, Hash, Mooney, Fancher, Hamilton, Riley, Taylor (Daviess, KY), and more. Lots of Eastern Kentucky families (aforementioned Barnett and Eversole, but also Radford, Haddix, Hays, Napier, Campbell, Bowling, Pennington, etc.). Lots of North Carolina German families (aforementioned Moose family, Holt, Ribelin, Wilhoite, Eagle, Peck, Bushart, Haldeman, and more). I will address any suggested edits or corrections as quickly as I can.

|B. Marsh||RE: Corrections to Marsh & Howard Families|
You may transfer the Marshes to me, and I will make the changes. However, with the Howard family, you may make the changes and keep those memorials.
Thanks for responding so quickly!

|B. Marsh||Corrections to Marsh & Howard Families|
I recently found that a number of my husband's Marsh relatives & Howard relatives are listed at the incorrect cemetery in Marlette, MI. I do find that it is difficult to find where the boundaries are for these two cemeteries since they appear as one cemetery. The two cemeteries are the Marlette City Cemetery and Saint Elizabeth Catholic Cemetery. Without a map of the two cemeteries one would be confused as to which cemetery certain burials are in.
Regarding the Marsh Families: They are all buried in the same section of Marlette City Cemetery. My husband is a nephew to many of them. However, the following are listed at Saint Elizabeth Cath. Cemetery and should be placed in Marlette City Cemetery: Harry B Marsh (#165912113); Helen Marsh Brons (#165893667); William Brons (#165893693).
In regards to the Howards, the following memorials are listed at Saint Elizabeth Catholic Cemetery but should be listed at Marlette City Cemetery: Clawson Howard (165900730); Nora Balch Howard (#165900773); David N Howard (#165900748); Donna R Howard (#165900758); Renald Floyd Howard (#165900784); and Kimberly Lou Howard (#165900767). My husband is cousin to the Howards.
If you do not wish to make these corrections, I would be all right with a transfer of the above mentioned memorials. My Find A Grave number is -- #48791973.

|Joy Russell||RE: Reeves Cemetery|
I sent you an e-mail to your gmail address with maps from Google Earth showing where Reeves Cemetery is located. I also sent you the GPS Coordinates.
|MJH||RE: William Eversole|
Thanks. I had found all the census records, but not the WWI draft registration card. I take census records with a grain of salt because I have researched many people both in my personal tree and on Findagrave who are very hard to find in census records. And him missing in the 1900 census made me question the parentage. But, I am satisfied enough now with the draft registration naming the suggested father as his nearest relative. I also know that many draft registration cards birth years are off by a year (and sometimes more), but it is interesting that he apparently continued to use that birth year since that is the year on the SSDI. (I also take published books on family genealogy and county histories with a grain of salt as they can be filled with errors depending on where the information came from and the person editing it. I have a couple of family genealogy and county history books that are filled with errors including wrong information about my immediate family that I know isn't what my parents or grandmother submitted.)

Thanks for your edit requests. I am having trouble verifying his parents because the birth date I have for him is 1899 and he is not in the 1900 census with the parents you have suggested. If you have birth or death certificates or an obituary that lists them as his parents that would help.

Thank you so much for your generous offer and if I find any of them to be related, I may take you up on your kind offer. It appears that John's young wife had a child by him after he died and left soon afterwards with her young family to return to their old home in Canada. I have located three of them up there so they must have remained in Ontario. all the best.

Thank you so very much for your quick response. It is much appreciated and I will take good care of the memorial. Thank you for all your hard work on findagrave.

I recently sent you a request for your kindness if you could transfer my ancestor, John Cody to me. I have considerable information on him which I would like to add. I have just discovered some of my e-mails have not gone through the last few days so thought I would try it again this way in case you didn't receive my request in the usual way.It would mean a lot to me. Thank you.
