Bio and Links
Bio Photo My totem, Percival Fugi, who left us much too soon. His heart was true and strong and he held us in the "palm of his paws".

If I have created a memorial and I am not directly related to that person, I will gladly transfer it to a family member within the fourth generation FAG recommendation. While it gives me great pleasure to place a memorial into the hands of their family, I do reserve the right to not transfer individuals connected to my family.

Please include a separate edit link for each memorial you are requesting transferred, as well as your Find A Grave ID number, it is such a help to not have to search for each individual and it ensures each transfer is correct...assuming the memorial you requested is correct.

Plus, I am having health issues at the moment and my time on the computer is somewhat limited, so please bear that in mind.

Like many of you, I've added quite a bit of data to my family tree through the generosity of Find A Grave contributors and I firmly believe in Paying It Forward.

Sadly, some older cemeteries have been lost and with that loss has come graves that can no longer be identified. Many other gravestones are eroded by the passage of time and are no longer legible. Other cemeteries have been vandalized and severe storms and tornados have done their damage. These are just a few of the problems that beset our cemeteries, so thanks to all you Find A Gravers who are helping with their preservation.

We can add or correct a number of these omissions by simply logging on to Find A Grave and, as has been so aptly said by others, Paying It Forward.

Regarding transfers, Find A Grave recommends the following:

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

Transfers will be made within these FAG policy guidelines.

Hi Maryanne

I am Bessie Hagan Garner's granddaughter. I have often thought of visiting the family cementry.

My sister and I lived with our grandparents (
Gray Garner) in Oklahoma for several years.

I would love to hear from you if you have time.

I am Shirley Grant Farrell, I am working on the Tidwell family history. I am working on Darling Manuel and Roxanna William McCracken Tidwell. I have a couple of questions, I hope you can help me with:
1. Roxanna's memorial # 16625137 states that they had 18 children, and I am only able to find the name of 14, wondered if you can help me with the children's name?
2. I found Darling's middle name as Manuel and his memorial # 16807463 has his middle name as Moses, I am trying to confirm which is correct.
If you prefer you can email me at or if you are on Facebook you can look me up, username Shirley Grant Farrell. We have a Tidwell group, we share photos, questions and help each other.
Thanks for all you have done on Darling and Roxanne.

Hello! After I notified you about the duplicate memorials, the manager of the other memorial transferred management of his one, 32169480, to me. It has the lower number, and more info. I would like to keep this memorial but include the obituary, data, and photo you provided, and give you credit for it. Ben is a distant relation of mine, but I am willing to compromise if you feel strongly about it. Thanks!

Hello! These two memorials, 32169480 and 44287570, appear to be duplicates. Would you please get in touch with the manager of the other memorial and work out how to merge them? I would like to submit corrections and family links, but do not want to cause extra work. Thanks very much!

She & Buford are buried in John Lay cemetery and Ron Miller put their picture on Find A Grave.
Walked Ethridge Cemetery trying to find them and then went to John Lay and there they were.
Should not be listed at Ethridge Cemetery.

RE: Can you link siblings?
Yes Maryanne, thankyou so much, I wasn't sure how to do it. I have one more to find. But I think she was in Indiana, Mamie Clark Judd. It's wonderful what you have done, we get to see where our folks are. I didn't know where Petty was buried. Thankyou

Can you link siblings?
Hello I was wondering how can I link my aunt with her siblings. I'm guessing only you can do it since you manage her memorial. Her name is petty gay Richardson. Clark is her maiden name. Her parents are Thomas pleasant Clark and Mary Clark. Here's their numbers, Thomas 15707782 and Mary 15791515. She is the only one not listed with her siblings. Much thanks if you can help. Thank-you for posting these.
