|Conservative Patriot||Virtual Cemeteries|
Welcome to FG.
One very useful feature is the Virtual Cemetery.
No matter where people are buried.
No matter who manages the grave entry.
You can collect graves important to you
into your own one or more Virtual Cemeteries.
The Virtual Cemetery can be public and shared with others.
Or the Virtual Cemetery can be private, accessed only by you.
Go to your FG user profile page and in the lower left and find the link to TOOLS.
In the tools page you can manage your Virtual Cemeteries.
Then when you are at a grave you would like to add to your Virtual Cemetery, look down the grave page and find the Link:
Edit Virtual Cemetery Info
and check the correct Virtual Cemetery checkbox.
I use virtual cemeteries to organize fallen Civil War soldiers by their unit, one virtual cemetery for each unit.
Others use to organize twigs of their family trees
into virtual cemeteries.
Others use virtual cemeteries to track other person attributes like membership, church, occupation, etc.
You will find this capability quite useful
as you find more and more family member graves.
FG transfer policy is limited to first degree relatives. You can imagine your great great grandfather had maybe 5 to 8 children and the next generation had the same, and may be later the families where smaller, but now there are hundreds of possible persons today who might be related, who want to manage the graves.
So early on, FG adopted the policy...
first degree relatives (mother, father, siblings).
This is why they created the Virtual Cemetery functionality.

I have taken 2 pictures for your photo request of this headstone and as you thought it is Howard Hopkins. In the caption of one of the pictures I typed the complete transcription. I posted the pictures on the memorial but have not requested any edits from the contributor. I will leave that to you.
There is at least one Hopkins headstone which I found at the cemetery that does not have a memorial, maybe more. I will look thru my pictures and post those too. If you want me to transfer these new ones to you, just let me know.

Sorry to be so slow - this got lost in the Christmas rush. Done now.
|Celeste Simmons||RE: Transfer - Brown|
I have transferred the memorials to you. Always happy to transfer to a family member! Enjoy
Hello, I saw that you have Keith Hopkins Sr in your list of sites. My Aunt, Belva Taylor was married to him at one point, and I'd love to have any info you may have about her/the marriage or her children, my cousins. I saw a similar name on Ancestry.com, hope you are one and the same person.
Thank you in advance

Do you have any info on the son of the first wife?
|S. McCoskey ~ Sleuthhound||Andrew Porter - WV|
Well YES and NO.
How is that.
Andrew's first wife was Nancy Slack. Her great grandfather was Arthur Orr who was my husband's ggg-grandfather.
So the branch is way down the tree.
