Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I have prepared a memorial for your immediate family member and you would like it transferred to you, please use the Suggest a Correction link located by clicking the Edit tab in the upper right hand corner of each memorial. In your message, please state your relationship to the deceased. I will consider distant family members, friends and totally unrelated people if you have something to contribute which I have not done already.

Also, if you find any errors I have made, please use the Suggest a Correction links. I appreciate people helping me fix my errors.

Thanks to all who flower any of the memorials which I created.

I love Find A Grave and I especially enjoy adding photos to memorials so that family members can visit their family member's graves at anytime. However, I ask that you respect my efforts. Please do not copy them to paid sites except Ancestry. Please, do NOT copy my photos to anywhere without giving me credit. Simply indicate "Photo by J.Sullivan from Find A Grave". I'd appreciate a note letting me know you have copied them. However, do NOT post them to other Find A Grave memorials. Just let me know and I will upload them myself. If you want to use them for commercial purposes or to create your own web site, that is not allowed under any circumstances. However, it is okay with me for you to post my photos of your friends and families headstones on Facebook as long as you link it back to the Find A Grave memorial. Please note that other members may have different opinions on this and you should honor their wishes.

Important admin notices posted in the forums:

Per Mark, the admin:

1. Location of body unknown should be used for recent deaths where the disposition is not currently known. You should however make every effort to locate the final disposition and update it as soon as possible.

2. See part 1. Not everyone in my direct family has been located and thus none of them are linked. I make notes in bios of those who have known locations. Such as "Son of X and Y" or "Also father of X". What I do is look for new listings and ask for updates when a generous member has finally found a missing relative.

3. No duplicates are allowed. Period.

This is Find A Grave and long-term unknown dispositions solely for the purpose of creating family links is outside the main intent of the website.

Per AJ, the admin:

Photograph the grave/gravesite "in-situ", or as it appears in that moment in time. The purpose is to show the grave as it is, be it dirty, cluttered, broken, or pristine. It is not your job to clean it, clear it, fix it, or decorate it. The graves are not yours to do as you please. Remember, one person's "good deed" just might be another person's vandalism. Go take lots of photos...but do it like an anthropologist and do not disturb the grave site.

RE: Out-of-guidelines transfer request
I have always found people to be very helpful on this site...until today. I'm disappointed in your willingness to help me. I will be contacting the Admin.

I'm afraid I'm not keen enough to figure out your e-mail address.

Fallen Graver
I came across your profile and see that you have done some work/research regarding fallen gravers. I came across a headstone for a fallen graver today; this lady did some very loving work adding family memorials. I added a memorial for her and connected her to family, but I am not sure how I report her as a fallen graver. Her name: Alma Ann (Crosson) Renner at East Lawn Memorial Park in Sacramento. Her Find A Grave #46841656 and her memorial number 183333823. Any guidance you can give me would be appreciated.

Hello J,

Nice photos of the stones in that section of the cemetery. Thanks for posting them. I posted an abstract of his obituary, if he is related to you. Just a FYI for your records.

Thanks, Bev W.

Elizabeth Malin, Augusta Cemetery, 41808566
Could you please add in her notes, that she was also married to a Mr Malin on May 12 1860. I have attached her to her first husband. Benjamin Cole.
PS So far I have been unable to locate Mr Malin's plot and the info I have for his name states his first name is Malin also, I have a hard time posting this until I find more info.

The date of death agrees with the early cemetery readings that are found at the Newport library. As you can see the photo of the tombstone is very hard to read. You have control of the entry, so you can make any changes that you want. When I abstracted all the obituaries from the Newport Hoosier State, I sent you the obit. It is correct. The date of the obituary is 1872 not 1873. I just double checked.

Edit for Carl Sanders #42984550
I submitted an edit for the memorial for my grandfather, Carl Edwin Sanders #42984550, and accidentally hit the ok button before adding a message. The SSDI info listed is incorrect, his death date was actually 29 October 1998, as stated on the stone. If further information is needed, please let me know and I can email you a copy of his death certificate, as I feel its rather tacky to post such photos on the memorial page.
Thank you.
