Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am no longer working at the local community college in Disability Services, and I miss my job and the boss who hired me, she was wonderful. My job was eliminated, I assume because of all the cuts to education. Right now I am looking for a paying job.

I love doing ancestry research. I have been working on my family tree & visiting graveyards since the 70's. I welcome any 'cousins' who contact me, especially with family photos, I believe "a picture is worth a thousand words".

My family research is mostly centered in Spartanburg County, SC, but I have branches scattered all over the country (as most people do).

I have been working to put family pictures on FindAGrave memorials. Sometimes I write & ask to manage a relative's memorial because I know more about them than the creator does, but if a closer relative wants to take one I have over, please do not hesitate to ask.

I strive for accuracy in my memorials, but I do not guarantee it. Please feel free to correct me.

I have lately been adding memorials for my cousin J Richard Gosnell, whose research is concerned with his Gosnell family and related lines in Madison County, NC, Spartanburg, SC, Greenville, SC and connected areas. Richard lives in Spartanburg and is listed in the local phone book, he welcomes being contacted by anyone who is interested in adding details to his family tree and learning from his research.

RE: Wheeler Gosnell Cemetery
I don't know. I have run into that two or three times. I try the name of the cemetery, and then try three or four names out of the burials and if I get nothing back I enter the cemetery. If I get time some time I will try and move the photo's to the other cemetery and delete mine, or I can just delete mine now. Which ever. I am going to get off of find a grave, as far as adding or editing, soon. It has gotten to be a pain.
I have transfer memorial to people and then they move it to the wrong cemetery. Madison County Cemeteries are called by different names by different families. One family member wants one name or date and another sends in another. It is just to much to keep up with. Like I said a pain. I am wondering if the other cemetery name was changed later, because it sure was not there when I added the cemetery; or find a grave had a glitch that day. Lumptown is seven miles from Hot Springs.

I have removed the wives of Portman Gosnell and his children I listed as requested. This is the second time this has happened. Last year a gentlemen of the Gosnell line sent me a list of the wife and children, that said just the opposite of what you stated, so, I removed the children and wife and posted the ones he said were Portman's wife and children. My wife and I are both of the Gosnell line and I want to get it straight, but come on, regards.

RE: Lindsey
Sometimes people may be deceased who made the memorials or just stopped doing Find A Grave. You can use Help with Find A Grave to get those transferred but I never had any luck with getting them to help. Reading the rules and all about help with find a Grave helps sometimes on how to do thing. Maybe that will get better since is taking over I heard. God Bless

RE: Lindsey
I don't know what to tell you. Many people refuse to add or change things or transfer even when the rules tell them to transfer close family. If you read "Help with find a grave" it might help you. Its to the right on Find A Grave where it lists your log in. Parents, grandparents g grandparents gg grandparents, siblings but cousins are not on the list that have to be transferred. I asked for a gg grandparent but they refused to transfer so it happens to all of us. Good luck

Go to edit on the right side at the top of his memorial you created and follow the instructions I gave you on the last email. If all else fails delete the Memorial and put one on the correct cemetery.

RE: James William
Thank you, I am understanding now. There is a way to move a Memorial but I have to refresh my memory before telling you. LOL Senior citizen thing!! Go to Edit on his Memorial where he is the only one on Meadow Fork. click then .. click on •Edit my Virtual Cemetery settings for this memorial check the other listing of Meadow Fork Cemetery and I believe it will move to the other cemetery. Let me know if this works. Nan

RE: James William
You added Meadow Fork as a duplicate and added a Lindsey that is already added in the original cemetery Meadow Fork Cemetery. The duplicated one needs deleted. I will add the parents as a link on the correct cemetery.. I am confused. On my Memorial the parents are linked so add that his father is buried without a tombstone on the one you made of his father . James William Doggett has a tombstone.
