Please feel free to request transfers. My only interest in being a member of Finding A Grave is to help others locate the final resting places of their loved ones. Many people have helped me in such a way and I appreciated all the work they have done. This is my way of passing their efforts forward.

I do reserve the right to maintain my own family and relatives, but I have transferred to those who are closer related. So request away. We may find we are related.

I do place death certificates on my memorials but am willing to remove them if space for pictures is needed. Please just ask for their removal if you need to.

Also, people have asked many times if they can use the pictures that I have placed on memorials. Yes, anyone may use the pictures for their own personal use. I do not feel ownership for them they are there for family members to enjoy.

illegible grave
I see a grave listed in here for Imlay Cemetery in Lapeer, MI for a Fred Z and the record hint says his last name is Graham. I believe Zenas and Leonora Graham were really his grandparents but that Dennis Odell and Omenda Odell are his parents. I also believe that Leonora Odell Freeman was his sister.
All of these graves are in this cemetery but i cannot read birth and death dates in the images. Can anyone take some new images to confirm so I can begin searching for obituaries and other vital statistics?

Calvin Cookson
You say that it is fine to use the pictures you have posted for personal use; however, a descendant of Calvin Cookson would like us to publish the photo in our magazine with a story about him. This would be for the Genealogical Forum of Oregon's quarterly, the Bulletin. Would you please let me know if this use is okay with you?

Record of Civil War Veterans
Hi Sandy,
I would appreciate it if you would send me a copy of the "Tuscola County record of Civil War Veterans buried in Tuscola County". It certainly would save me a hassle if you could do that. My mail address is .

The Riverside Cemetery records can be found here:

Thank you in advance and keep up the great work!

RE: Kathryn Tackebury Stafford
Kate's mother, Mary Vinette, is sister to George Vinette, my husband's great grandfather. So their parents, Jean Baptiste and Mary, are 2 g grandparents to both of you, making you (I think) 3rd cousins.

William Seabury memorial transfer
I wanted to apologize for not thanking you earlier for the transfer of the memorial for William Seabury, a soldier in the Fourth Michigan Infantry, to me. Somehow I overlooked it and wanted you to know that I really appreciated your cooperation. I have just updated his memorial (#70521390) to indicate his military service.

Thanks again,

RE: Merrow picture
Yes, feel free to copy and use the picture. Frank and Sarah were my husbands gg grandparents. Their daughter Emma married his great grandfather Joseph Oren Pittenger in 1889, divorced before 1900. They had two children Mary Frances 1891-1891 (died at 6 months of pneumonia) and Walter 1893-1966. A niece of Joseph Oren's, Harriet Pittenger married Sarah's brother Isaac Oscar in 1888, and they too were divorced around 1900.
