In re Ottie N Lorentz
Request for permission to use photo from

I am wondering if I may have your permission to use the photograph of Ottie's gravestone that is on at
on his profile at Wikitree, which you can find at I have already added the photograph so that you can see what it will look like, but it's simple enough to remove (or to change the credits).
Thank you,
Patricia Prickett Hickin

Toothman Family Cemetery
My ancestors were named Toothman and it appears that several of my direct ancestors are buried in the Toothman family cemetery in Fairview, WVa.
We were in Fairview this past weekend (8/18/17 to 8/20/17) and tried to locate it. We Google mapped it, but that led us to one called The Myers cemetery.
I see you have photos of some of my ancestors headstones that you say are located in the Toothman Cemetery and hoped you could give me directions to the cemetery.
Many thanks
Jim Yeager

Christie & Bill
Hello Memory!

How are you? My name is Christi (catholicmom) on here ... I was wondering if you maintain any Lilley graves in Marshall County WV and if you do - I would like to know if you would transfer them to me because I am a direct line and all the Lilleys in Marshall County are my family.

Well, darn - I'd like to send the edit request through the memorial, but this matter is about one that is not your memorial! You did upload a photo to the above memorial, but the stone photo actually belongs to another (that actually already has a photo): 181389256

I hope this makes sense. Both memorials belong to men with the same name!! To correct the confusion, would you be able to remove the photo from the memorial # in the subject line?

Thank you so much for taking a photo of the gravestone of my 2nd great-grandfather at East Oak Grove Cem. What is your policy regarding the use of your photos on a personal website? With your permission, I would like to include this one on my site at Actually there are other photos you have taken that I would also like to include if you approve. An example of the credit I would give you can be seen at

Thank you for posting my aunt's gravestone. Ruth M. Hyre & spouse Ralph. Our 91 year old aunt wants to pay her respects, but no longer remembers where the grave is located. This is a long drive for her, so we are trying to find the location of the grave in the cemetery before we go. Do you know who we can contact for this information? We have tried contacting the funeral director and have never gottena reply. Thanks for any help!

RE: Maple Grove cemetery
I deleted all of the pictures I took and most of the ones I had posted. Very rude but there doesn't seem to be a governing body that actually cares how people treat others.
I still transfer all of my new memorials to findagrave unless they are family. Let them send their nasty messages to findagrave not me. I love this site and that is what frustrates me the most!!

On a personal note; I can't wait until you're either on a stable network or back in WV.

Thank you
Thank you for your prompt response to my questions regarding Abner and my grandfather Jesse Lawrence Minor. Is there anone locally that you can think of that I could be in touch with? I have learned that Jesse is buried in an unmarked grave in the Curry plot. Jesse's sister Mary was married to Lemon Curry and he was placed there. If there is only one unmarked grave in this plot then I have found him...

I'm hoping to get a photo of my great great grandfather's headstone. He was Abner Minor 1831 -1907 and buried in the Harmony Cemetery. I think you live in or near the Marshall area of West Va.? I also have another question regarding my grandfather Jesse Lawrence Minor and was hoping for some advice. Thank you.

RE: re: again
I thought you'd get a kick out of it. That and the back and forth about you. Especially since his comments were the reason you transferred everything to findagrave.

Thanks so much for all you did get. It is a shame that cemeteries aren't kept up better than they are!!

I'm thinking about doing the #8 thing with my memorials too, do you have any tips on an easy way to get that done?

RE: re: again
I have a folder in my email for those, I went through and there are 17 from the same one. :( Sad that it seems to be necessary for some to act like that.

Rude People
Well, I now know what you have been going thru....I am starting to get rude comments from a findagrave member.....
how crappy do people have to be? Oh well, I will just smile and go on doing my thing!!!

RE: re: again
from the first one, yes, a couple times. Pretty much the same.

Added by Human on Mar 03, 2015 9:25 PM

Honestly, I see nothing snide about letting some one know they should check a date and the way you worded it was NOT snide at all! I would simply ignore it. :) But, you can leave this message as retaliation if you need to feel better, it's not his fault that he doesn't know you.

RE: re: Martha Moore
No reason for the snide comment. Her obituary lists her name as Mary Moore that is the reason the edit was submitted.
