|Bio and Links|
I will no longer make family links to memorials that are "burial unknown", especially if there is no birth or death dates. This is "Find A Grave", not "Free Family Tree Game". You did not find a grave, you typed a name in with no idea where the final resting place is for that person. I consider such memorials invalid and contrary to the purpose of Find A Grave, so I will not link to them.|
When I started on FindaGrave, I wanted to help provide original information on burials that was difficult to find elsewhere. I reasoned that an accurate account of headstone, cemetery records, and information related to the burials would enhance people's genealogical research, helping to add new information or confirm that which they had already gleaned elsewhere.
However, a great number of people have decided it is a resource better suited to making a free family tree where they can replace what can be found at the gravesite with information from other sources (with any mistakes that it may contain). If some family tree hints they are buried in some cemetery, why bother checking? Just plop the memorial there. Don't know the cemetery at all? Just plop them in one you think is close by or leave it as "burial unknown", maybe somebody will go through the trouble of contacting you after they put in the hard work to actually find the grave in another cemetery. Either way, you still get to claim the find as yours because you "found" it first.
Because of these things, I am much less active on FindaGrave. The effort and expense to physically locate and accurately record graves just isn't worth it if the reality of the website being more like "Their-Grave-Could-Be-There.com" is good enough for most members.

Thank you very much for the photo. I appreciate your time in helping; I do the same for others. That's what makes Find A Gravers so special.

Thank You for adding Jacob's memorial.
I have sent links for his father & mother via the edit tab.
Your time is greatly appreciated!
Thank you so much for the tombstone photos for Milliard and Harriette (Snell) Watters.
|Lyn McDaniel||RE: Barger & activity|
I didn’t know you were related, too, so no need to transfer her. Doesn’t matter to me who “owns” the memorials as long as they’re right and connected to their family. I have corresponded with Carolyn Bremmer in years past, and probably sent her the Barger info that you posted. Contact me off-board and I can eMail you a couple of pictures you would want of Henry Potterfield and of the Wadsworth family. My yahoo address is LLMCD2005.
I had the Wadsworth family Bible until it was stolen around 1971. I grew up in Hannibal. Have you been to the “Forman Burying Ground?” Some of our people are supposed to be there.
|Lyn McDaniel||Please transfer Susannah Barger|
I’m sorry you’ve had such a bad time that you’re backing off. I get tired of leeches, too. If you’re still checking this site at all, I’d appreciate it if you’d transfer Susannah Barger 80916261 my great-grandmother to me. I posted her son years ago. My ID is 47472091. Thanks.

Would you happen to remember where you were able to get this information? We have been to the cemetery and were unable to find a grave marker. After speaking with Jerre at the cemetery, he said there was probably not a headstone if a picture was not available. Any information would be wonderful.
Appreciate all your hard work.
|Bridget Fox||Bridget O'Neil Collins died 1888|
We are doing some geneology and see that a Bridget O'Neil Collins is buried in St Joseph Cemetary in Palmyra. We thing this may be my dad's great grandmother. What information do you have on this person? We went to the cemetary and could not find a grave and to the library and looked for the obituary on microfiche but could not find anything. We did not go to the church to look at their records. We will try that next visit. Thanks for your help.

I am requesting a transfer of memorial # 102159614. His name is actually James Jackson Norton and he is my 3rd great uncle. I would appreciate the transfer and I will take good care of it. Thank you.
