Please review Find A Grave's transfer policy: "Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Second, Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren."


We live in central North Carolina. My late husband is from Barren County, KY, so a lot of the genealogy that we worked on is from that area.

Our main surnames in NC are McDade, Foreman, Weaver and Lashley. In KY Kerley, Branstetter, Jenkins, Simmons, Chism and Howard.

We have taken digital photos of tombstones in our area which are then posted on Cemetery Census.

NB Scott Photo by Sandra
I am writing to inform you this photo by Sandra does not belong on this grave #32666101.

I uploaded it to my great grand dad's grave, and it belongs there ONLY. #18755098

PLEASE, Do not mix these people up. Thank You!

Find A Grave Memorial# 32666101 Napolean B Scott
Would you mind helping me with some information on the Scott Family?. My great grandmother was Matilda Frances Scott Arnold. She is the sister of N B Scott. Is His DOB in 1858 or in 1869. Kentucky Birth records show 10 jul 1858. Kentucky Death records show DOD as 1934 and being 75 which would make his DOB about 1859 His grave marker shows 1869. There is another Find A Grave Memorial # 18755098 with te same picture but different DOD's and different cemetery's. Please dont be upset with me for asking. I just want to know which one is which. Thanks so much for your help. You are now in our prayers for a speedy recovery.

Irby Rhew
Hi Ellen,

You created a memorial for Irby Rhew back in 2009 and wrote the following:

Note: This Is The Grave of Irby Rhew Bound Out In 1819 by His Mother Polly Rhew To John Redmond, Sr., To Learn 'The Art and Mystery of A Hatter' Married Artelia Browning In 1831. He Is Said To Have Chosen A Rough Stone From The Eno River As His Tombstone

Do you know where this came from?

Mary Eva England #15656483
Mary Eva England is actually Mary Eva Williams she was married to my husbands second great grandfather Albert. The parents attached to her are not her parents. Her parents were Isaac Norman Williams and Elizabeth Estes (per her KY Death Certificate).I have not found her parents listed in find a grave as of yet so I have no numbers to change them to.

Sandra W Terry
Paul Hager?
Requesting any additional information you might have. I have found the accident in the Herald paper for August 25, 1949, and his obit on August 26, 1949 by Clyde Kelly funeral home. He is my Mom's father, she never knew him, but has become more inquisitive in her later years. They state in paper that he is interned in a Veterans plot at Maplewood. Does that mean no family came forward. We are just beginning our search, and are learning as we go. I have contacted the NC Highway patrol about the accident report, but have not heard back yet. Thank you
