RE: Old Town Cemetery in Waynesboro
Sorry, I live in Ohio near Michigan border. My father's family is from there so I took the pictures while visiting with them years ago. I don't know who cares for the cemetery.

RE: William Richardson
No worries, I needed a refresher on my line anyway. :)

William Richardson
Hi, Robert
I confirmed what I suspected. William Richardson does not fit in my Richardson line. If you still believe that he fits in yours, I am happy to transfer him to you.

WM Richardson
You got me to thinking about where WM fits into my line. Since I haven't worked on my family tree in several years and my memory is so horrible, I think I may have mistaken this William with all the Williams on the other side of my family. I can't find any record of him in my Ancestrydotcom info thus far. Let me hunt up my notes this weekend to refresh my memory and then I'll get back with you next week. I think he may in fact be your William. If so I will transfer him to you. I may have just taken him under my wing for pictures when I visited the L.R. National Cemetery due to the resemblance in information to my own G.G.G.Grandfather J.T Richardson that died the year previous to William. Sorry for all the confusion. I'll get back with you ASAP.

William Richardson
Hi Robert,
You stated you've had trouble tracing your Richardson line, well congratulations on your find. I am a Richardson and William Richardson is my paternal Great Grandfather. I traveled all the way to Little Rock to obtain the picture of his headstone. I will make my virtual cemeteries available for a couple days so you may view my Richardson line. I'm sure you understand that I will not transfer any of them being that they are in my line. I am adding you to my friend list so that I don't lose track of you. Their may be genealogy info that we can share that will help in our searches. Great to meet you Robert. Have a great day!

There is no reason to merge those 2 memorials. She made the memorial knowing that I had created the memorial 2 years before. Not only is the memorial dated 2009 , bt the photo is. Also she added chalked photo's which I do not want on My memorial.

Please send Me the info. You want added and or links You want to add.

This memorial does not fall into the Find A Grave Transfer guidelines

I noticed that You already have the duplicate of My memorial that Pam made. It should have been deleted instead of transferred.Now since Pam is the only one who could delete I have to request for Find A Grave to delete it. Not sure why You would need 2 memorials of the same person.


Isaac & Sarah Willingham
These are my GGG Grandparents and would like to request Transfer if you will allow. I have a lot to update and soon hope to have more pictures. Their Grandson, Dr. Henry Jones Willingham was the President of Florence State Teachers College (Now UNA) for 25 years. He is buried here in Florence AL. The memorials are:

Isaac Willingham # 44908909
Sarah Willingham # 44908906

Thank you,
Robert Richardson Tyree, Sr.
