Find A Grave Memorial# 90708852
Hi there,

When you have a chance could you please review the edits I sent you back on Feb 6th? Please let me know if you wish me to resend. If you don't mind, would you mind transferring this memorial to my management? Clare married my mother's cousin.

I was wondering if you would be willing to transfer one of the memorial pages you have to me. The number is # 88759619

Thank You!

RE # 76236036
This memorial for Christina Elizabeth Dowdy, age 4 when she died in a head on collision, shows Leonard Dale Dowdy as her father. Leonard Dale died in the crash with Christina but her death certificate indicated John Henry Dowdy Jr & Judith Handy as her parents.

I cannot find information stating Leonard Dale is her father; might you know where that information came from?

Thank you!

Fletcher G Dowdy #75856278
Good morning! I am related to the Dowdys of Cumberland Co, VA by way of marriage. My mother-in-law is Mary Helen Dowdy Chapin. Regarding your memorial for Fletcher G Dowdy (Fletcher Gormus Dowdy) ... I have the 1880 census (taken 17 June 1880) showing Fletcher Gormus age as "6/12" meaning, as you know, she would have been born 13 Dec 1879, not 1880.
The grave marker shows 13 Dec 1880... yikes! She passed in 1953 & I don't know if anyone ever knew her actual birth year but it seems it truly is 1879. I didn't know if you wanted to add anything to your memorial indicating this problem... or if you want to transfer it to me? I think I will try to find if it's possible to fix that grave marker... I have only seen one other marker with an incorrect year of birth & I have yet to attack that.. it's a CSA marker for my husband's GG(G?) Grandfather!
if you have any words of wisdom for me in this situation, I'm happy to hear them. You have done quite a bit more on Find A Grave than I! You can email me directly at if easier.

Thanks for your time!

Bernie Haynes edit
I apologize for my error on Bernie's memorial #76967309. Ruth Thompson Bell (113818826) was his mother, not his wife. I must be more careful with my future edits.

David T. Williams #72600796

My name is Michelle "Micki" Crowell, #46870074, and I'm writing to ask permission to use your Find A Grave photo of David's headstone in my family tree. David was my grandmother's cousin and they were close growing up in Lecompte, LA.

I will always honor his memory and will appreciate your response either way.
Thanks in advance,

RE: Grave Photos
Thanks so much for the information! In all honesty, I had never noticed the drop down or would have been using that all along. Do you know of any possible way to go back and change the photos that have already been added back to the proper listing?

Thank you very much! I realized that after I sent the request. If I find any that you've taken, may I use those. I have approximately 1,215 veterans from around the country that will be included.

Andrew W. Adkins

I am creating a section of a website to honor the men who fought with the 743rd Tank Battalion in WWII. I was wondering if I could use your photo of Andrew Adkins headstone for the bio page that I'm creating for him. Thanks.

Thank you, Genealogy Helper, for a job well done for his military grave marker in Virginia Veterans Cemetery at Amelia photo. I was hoping that it was not too soon after his passing, that a marker might not be available, yet. Again, Thank you.

RE: Relationship Information
That is interesting, but doesn't that open the door for multiple people to post conflicting info?

I'd be upset if someone posted something abt my close ancestors that wasn't factual. I imagine you can't delete their info. :))

Thanks for the heads up
