Bio and Links
Bio Photo Happy to live in Minnesota, and Happy to be retired. I have found that participating in both Find A Grave and doing genealogy work on at the same time is very satisfying. I've met many generous, helpful, and nice people on this website. You will, too.

USE THE EDIT TAB, on the memorial you are asking about, for whatever you want me to do. PLEASE don't send me an email.

If you want me to transfer a memorial to you, just be related to that person, and DON'T FORGET TO USE THE EDIT BUTTON, that's all. If I'm related, too, I may keep them. I'm not going to get uptight about transferring. Happy Volunteering.

If you sit in a church, it doesn't mean you are a Christian, just like if you sit in a garage, it doesn't mean you are a car.


“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”

― Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967

One ship sails East,
And another West,
By the self-same winds that blow,
'Tis the set of the sails
And not the gales,
That tells the way we go.

Like the winds of the sea
Are the waves of time,
As we journey along through life,
'Tis the set of the soul,
That determines the goal,
And not the calm or the strife.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I would love to have the memorial transferred to me, Edward is my uncle. I can connect the page to all the family pages.

RE: Dr. Hooper
Thanks, Steve. I just contacted them now.
Dr. William Hooper is my great-grandfather. My mother was a Hooper before she married and grew up in Huntsville. I have visited Maple Hill Cemetery many times over the years. I have a lot of information on the Hooper family and will be happy to share it with anyone who asks me. The Hoopers are related to the Hundley family, so have some info there: wills, military papers, CSA, etc. Thanks for your help.

Stanfield Duplicate
Regarding that duplicate memorial, you might want to contact the original memorial maker and consider combing the information from both of your memorials. Just a thought.

Thank you for transferring that memorial - he was my uncle and Godfather, as well as a nice guy.

RE: shiffrar
Thanks so much. Our high school class is having their 50th reunion at end of Sept. and I am preparing a Memorial Binder (we have 83 who have passed away.).

James H. Harper Memorial# 60843088
Steve I accepted your date request and then found a problem with this memorial. According to his man's service record he was only 27 years old when he enlisted. His widow is listed as Mary Ann Harper. When I located his marriage record and his wife's grave, I then found another memorial for this man which shows him buried in Mississippi Memorial# 79819388 and died on 5 February 1863.

Could you please email me privately so we can figure which man is which. Thank you for the work you do on findagrave.

Hi a message you had sent someone else about and I are in the same boat...much easier to enter while we're hot on the trail and much more beneficial to have it than not to have it...but...the information in the obituary does belong in the "bio section" of the memorial and not a photo copy to take up room in the memorial...thanks for all your hard work in Find A Grave...Connie...just another volunteer
