Bio and Links
Bio Photo One of my main goals for 2017 will be to complete the 700+ entries added via spreadsheet for Rest Haven Cemetery. You are welcome to send edits but I will be completing these as I locate records to fill in the missing information, link families, and correct the dates of death which are currently listed from the cemetery records as dates of burial. Thank you for your patience.

PLEASE do not take my photos (family pictures or grave photos) and use elsewhere, especially Ancestry, without my permission. There's personal family photos I've never even uploaded to Ancestry but have ONLY placed on Find A Grave that have been taken and put on other's Ancestry trees, and they aren't even related to us!! Really??????

Much of my work is from "mowing the rows" in our local cemeteries or in those that are special to me when I get a chance to visit. I try to be very thorough in what I do post to this site. My favorite part of contributing to Find A Grave is walking the cemeteries and taking photos. I also utilize available records for my entries and hope to either photograph later myself or have other contributors photograph these graves, as I have photographed theirs. ACCURATE cemetery documentation is very important, and this is why I do what I do.
I love to research and link families, and add biographical information - please use the Edit tab and send me any information you would like to have added, and I will add based on the rules for bios set in the Find A Grave FAQ's, which includes rewriting obituary information facts so as not to violate copyright (pre-1923 obits excluded).
I transfer only within the four-generation
Find-A-Grave guidelines.
PLEASE carefully check the cemetery in which you want to list a memorial (it doesn't hurt to quickly check the county too) BEFORE you list it, as one may already exist for that person. Duplicate memorials for the same person, ("Dupes"), whether accidental or intentional, are not allowed by F-A-G. Duplicates erode the quality of this site and are problematic for many reasons. I will send you a friendly SAC if I see one.
It is very sad that quite a few contributors continue to misuse this site and post entries as permanent BURIAL UNKNOWN, both recent deaths and those 100 years ago or more.
This is Find A GRAVE, not a memorial site for generations of folks who have passed on and we do not know where they are buried, or for certain what happened to their remains.
I do not add entries for those with unknown dispositions (Burial Unknown) to Find A Grave. I also will not link my managed memorials to those without proper dispositions. Please do not link any BURIAL UNKNOWN entries to the memorials I manage; I will request the links to be removed if I become aware they have been linked.
PLEASE realize this is a GRAVES REGISTRATION SITE, not a place for you to build your family tree :) If you do not know where the person was buried, or the final disposition of the remains, you should not be listing the person on FIND A GRAVE.
The most recent FAQ's regarding the purpose of this site:
What is Find A Grave?
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.

Find A Grave is a resource for anyone in finding the final disposition of family,
friends, and ‘famous' individuals.

Find A Grave is definitely a genealogical RESOURCE, but not a genealogical SITE..... There's a difference :)

A C Hartgrove
There are two listings for A C Hartgrove in the Bethel Cemetery book. One lists him as A C Hartgrove, with only a death date and then years and months for age. The other lists him as Augustus Hartgrove with a birth and death date. It appears to be the same person. I did the math and both would have been born in 1812. That is strange, but guess it's not unheard of.

Definitely two different markers. I'll look for my listing of Bethel burials and see if there is something to explain it.

RE: Gloria Winona L. Raines - Corinth #1
Thank you Karyn! I've added the photos to the newer one since it had all the links and obit.

Winona Raines Black
I forgot to mention that she was indeed buried with her first husband, W. Henry Raines. Her death date was added to their marker.
Old memorial - 40971607
New memorial - 105424012

RE: Ida Haug
The only thing I can tell you is I took the pic in the cemetery where I listed it. I will see what I can do.

I am not sure what you are wanting me to do with my memorial? Yes mine is the first memorial but I will take it down and add the pic to the newer memorial if the owner of that one (Loye Hammers) is a family member.
Please let me know what you would like.

Unity Baptist Church Cemetery
I did try to add this phrase to the Church's entry.

"Cenotaphs remain in the cemetery in which the marker is found; by changing it to a Non-Cemetery burial, no one can find it except by making a site-wide search. Someone else may come along and make a duplicate entry if they don't find it in Unity."

Find-a-grave has it blocked for editing. I did add it to Anna Edwards memorial. That's the only place that it can be added.
