Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in the Indianapolis, Indiana area. I am a sixty-seven year old, retired school teacher who now spends a lot of his free time researching genealogy. The main lines of my adopted family are Walraven, Dennis, Chester, Wilmot, Sharp, Keller, Frakes, Gibbons, Ellis and Squire. The main lines of my biological family are Franklin, Evans, Welty, Dilley, Adams, Edwards, and Ayers.
I like to add grave stone photos to the genealogical records of my family because it puts an image with the name. I like to take a small cemetery and post it on findagrave along with photos.

Memorial #174136194
Please turn over Memorial #174136194 for Naomi Ruth Smith to me. This is my grandmother. While some might appreciate the fact of someone adding this information, we need time to grieve. I already manage her late husband's memorial on this site.

I just submitted an edit for his spouse & put the wrong memorial # in. I entered his Mother's #

sorry for this error

Please turn over findagrave memorial #174213703. As a longtime member of Findagrave myself (10 years+) I do not go around putting up nor placing memorials up on people who have just died or just about to be buried.

Please understand your thoughtfulness is lost on some grieving family members. This particular family member of #174213703 was a cousin that I knew from babyhood.

How about giving family members a chance to put their "original' find a grave memorial online. Cant you wait a few days before you CLAIM the decedent as your own like it is some competition for the sheer numbers posted?

Thanks "Frank" for your posting of my love one. LaTasha Homegoing was yesterday which was Monday, December 12, 2016. I would like for you to turn over the management to me if you do not mine and delete yours. {Smile] and I would keep it up for the family. Thank You! God Bless!

Mr. Walraven, please remove your listing for my father, #161365142. You posted before he was even buried, which seems disrespectful to me. I made a proper posting two days after his burial. We do not want a duplicate posting on Find-a-Grave, so we would appreciate your prompt attention to this matter.

Thank you for updating this cousin's memorial. We will try to get a photo of the gravestone in the spring.
