Bio and Links
Bio Photo Transfers under the following guideline. I've learned a long time ago you can't please everyone and I'm not going to try. For you who like to break the rules, don't waste your or mine time. If your request is outside my guidelines, I will ignore and delate your request.


Generation 1: your family -- Husband - wife - your children - son-in laws - daughter-in-laws - grandchildren.

Generation 2: your and spouse parents -- Father - Mother - aunts - uncles - 1st cousins - wives and hubands of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Generation 3: Grandparents - their siblings and their children -- huband and wife of siblings and children.

Generation 4: Great Gradparents - their siblings and their children - huband and wife of siblings and children.

NO transfers beyond the great-grandparents and NO transfers of Revolution Soliders or Civil War Soliders or Sailors.

This is a MUST!!! You have to tell me your RELATIONSHIP to the person you want transfered and PROVE if I shoud ask FOR proof. No transfer.

Don't waste my time with: I went school with...I do research for another person would you consider transfering...they were neighbors to my grandparents...I work with this person...they were my neighbors when I was a kid...just this once would consider breaking the rules...ect. ect. ect. If you are not related, forget it. My transfers go to family members who fall within the guide lines.

For you who think there should be no rules and should transfer every request that comes down the pipe, take it up with Find A Grave. They're the ones who set the rules.

CORRECTIONS: For you impatient persons who believe your request should be answered in a 24 hours period of time. Get Real! I may have 30 or 40 other requests before yours comes in. I do answered all corrections but it might take several day or weeks. I don't spent 24-7 at the computer. I know this is hard for you to believe but I do have a life outside the computer. I do have family and friends I spent time with, I have a part time job, yard ward, house keeping, grocery shopping, library research, visiting cemeteries for tombstones to photograph, searching cemeteries for requested tombstones and other chores that has to be do.

MY PERSONAL GOAL: My reason for joining Find A Grave is to presrve graves and their tombstones. That's where the bulk of my time on the computer goes, adding people and their tombstones. Corrections and tranfers are done when I can find extra time in the day. So if it takes me one or two months to answering your requests, so be it. Don't give me any guff, that if I can't keep up with the requests, I should transfer the memorials to someone who can. Get Real!! It won't happen!

Mary Susan Bond Mote FindAGrave Date
Mary Susan Bond Mote is listed in Find A Grave as 1882-1975; however, her tombstone says 1882-1973. She is listed incorrectly on several siblings, etc.

Robert Johnston
Hey Richard!

First of all, I salute you for all of the work you have done. It's a blessing to so many. And I appreciate it.

I'm writing to suggest that the information for Robert Johnston, in the Johnston Cemetery, might need to be altered. In my family records he is the first born son of Joseph Johnston (who is also in that cemetery). Joseph is my 3x great-grandfather.

Robert's death was on 27 Feb, 1849, and he was born 19 Sep 1807.

BTW, I have added photos of the headstones to the Johnston Cemetery. A distant family member took them and gave them to my elderly mother some years ago. I don't know if the headstones are even still there now. I would love to visit it sometime though, but now as Mom's caregiver (and I live in Dallas, TX) a trip like that might not be possible for some time.

Thank you again, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to touch base with me on them!

Christopher Collier Brown
Hello, I have a question requesting Christopher Collier Brown # 30604789. I see he married two Anglin sisters, Eliza b.1831 and Serena b.1854 , is this correct? The sisters' father Jonathan Monroe Anglin is my ancestor. My 5th great grandfather John Anglin is Jonathan's grandfather. The two sisters had a brother named William Cornelius who died in the battle of Shiloh in the Civil War. Tracing the name Cornelius back to John's brother who was killed in the Revolutionary War, son of William and Ann Caswell County North Carolina. I was curious as to the connection between the Brown and Anglin family. Do you know if they moved around together? Did they live close to one another? I am particularly interested in any Texas connections. Thank you for any information you can provide and I hope that I gave you something interesting as well!

RE: Jesse Hill Cemetery
Thank you for the response. Where did the information for Jesse Hill that you added July 29, 2011 come from?

and his wife Mary "Polly" Bray Hill:

Jesse Hill Cemetery

Have no knowledge of a Jesse Hill Cemetery.

I think there is a Jesse Hill buried in the Sappington Community Chapel Cemetery south of California, Missouri.

I do know where Sandy Hill Cemetery is.
