Bio Photo MISSION: I believe Find A Grave's mission first and foremost is to document cemeteries; to accurately record graves, not to build one's family tree.

Find A Grave FAQs says: Find a Grave's mission is to find, record and present final disposition information from around the world as a virtual cemetery experience.

Memorial contributions to Find A Grave should fulfill that mission - registration of the final disposition. If the memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, then the memorial fulfills its purpose as part of Find A Grave's mission.

Find a Grave memorials [may] contain rich content including pictures, biographies and more specific information. Members can leave remembrances via 'virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience.

TRANSFERS (PLEASE READ): Per Find A Grave FAQs, Transferring of management should only be requested If you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management. Simply having someone in your family tree is not grounds for a management transfer request. With hundreds of thousands of contributors, we have many overlapping family trees and it would be impossible for all contributors to manage their entire tree.

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Explain your relationship in the request! Any non-direct relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) are not required to be transferred.

I will consider making out-of-guideline transfers on a case-by-case basis. Please tell me your specific relationship to the one you want transferred to you. I need specifics not vague statements such as this is my family member, my relative or they are in my family tree. IF YOU AREN'T SPECIFIC, I WILL IGNORE/DELETE YOUR REQUEST. Please be considerate when asking.

This is guidelines set forth by Find A Grave. If you don't agree with them, please take it up with Find A Grave.

I know that you are not required to transfer someone's Aunt, but I was wondering if you could consider transferring my dear Aunt Mary to me? I would appreciate it so much!

Susan B Rogers
I have my Great grandmother Susan "Susie" B. Rogers. You can view her detailed Find A Grave at memorial #175753642.
This is the problem. Susie is listed as a daughter of David and Francis Rogers which you have in one of your memorials. It list Susan as buried at Walnut Hill Cemetery in Wisconsin. I do know from my grandmother that she does have a plot there but she is not buried there. She actually died in FL and was cremated. She married George E Belcher. Sooooo....the problem is I want to merge her with your memorial but I do not want her burial as Walnut Hill.
Again, she is NOT buried there. She has a plot but she is not there.
Can you change your memorial Find A Grave for her to reflect the proper burial so I can merge them?

Mary Brick, 95, Appleton, formerly of Greenwood, died Tuesday, Dec. 23, 2003, at Rennes Health Center, Appleton. Funeral services were held at 1 p.m., Friday, Dec. 26, at Immanuel United Church of Christ, Greenwood. The Rev. Mark Schwinn officiated.

Mary Kessala-Petronovich was born on Oct. 27, 1908, in Painsdale, Mich., to Thomas and Frances (nee Gasparich) Kessala. Her father died when she was three years old, and her mother remarried and moved the family to New Mexico, where they ran a boarding house. They later moved to Greenwood, where she finished her education and worked at the drug store. She moved to Chicago when she was a young lady and worked for a company mending nylon stockings during WW II. She married Raymond Brick in June of 1930, in Chicago. She then went to work for Zenith Electronics, where she assembled electronic circuit boards until her retirement in 1973. She lived in Berwyn, Ill., from 1958 until May of 2000, at which time she moved to the Rennes Health Center, Appleton. She was a member of Oak Park United Church of Christ. Her interests included crafting of all kinds, cooking, and volunteering at her church.

Survivors include two sisters-in-law, Vera Petronovich, Spring Valley, and Genevieve Petronovich, Thorp; and nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Preceding her in death were her parents, her husband, on Oct. 18, 1984, four sisters, Helen Florence, Frances Ritholer, Jenny Vivoda, and Donna Benzhowel; and five brothers, James Petronovich, John Petronovich, William Petronovich, George Petronovich, and Michael Petronovich.

Cuddie Funeral Home, Greenwood, assisted the family with arrangements

Also Mary and Raymond were married 14 June 1930 Cook Co, Illinois

Frances Kezele parents were Anton Gasporae and Catherine Please which is shown on her marriage record.
Also Mary and Raymond Brick had no children.

Thank you for your service and dedication to Accuracy. When i first joined this site I found some Petranovich people linked to the wrong family so I understand your decision at first please connect them now, I believe the evidence is there to support me. Thank you Rebecca

Monroe W. Webster
Hope your New Year is going good so far. Mine is good.

I was wondering where you got your information that Monroe was buried in Smith Mountain. I haven't been able to find his grave and he is not listed on the online list.

I have started a list of those that I can't find and will go to the office soon to see if they have record.

Just wanted to check. Please don't call me a "jerk" like another contributor did when I told her she had duplicated one of my memorials. But I know that you wouldn't do that.

Have good week-end.
