|Bio and Links|
The following was borrowed from contributor Juanda Owens B's profile page with which I strongly agree:|
"I think it is a real shame what findagrave has evolved into. What started as a noble way to link people with graves of loved ones they could never hope to see, and with the generations that had preceded them, has turned into a game for some. Memorials have turned into a kind of "trading card", a competition of who can own the most memorials and post the highest numbers. What has been forgotten by many is that these were people, loved in life and death, not a commodity to be traded or owned.
With my apologies to those that have pure motives. I hope there are more of us than there are of them".

Can you please explain why you can not edit this request or what specifically you are not willing to edit and why. I am not sure why you sited her child's death certificate.

Uncle Harry's grave was moved from Big Horse Creek Cemetery about 25 years ago to Millen City Cemetery. I was at Millen Cemetery today and took a picture and added it to the photos of his and wife, Gladys Wells Johnson Dickey profiles.
His full name is Harold George Dickey, nickname was Harry.

Thanks for your time.
|Deirdre||Salem Cemetery, Liberty County GA|
Thank you so much for all the work you have done on this site! In searching for gravesites of relatives, I came across the following cemetery.
Actually there were two listings for the same cemetery - one placed the cemetery in Liberty County and one placed it in Bryan County. The cemetery is actually in Liberty County, as you are aware.
I contacted Find A Grave and requested a merge of the two cemeteries and asked them to make sure the location data kept was correct. They have done this.
There are now about 10 duplicate memorials in Salem Cemetery from the merge, most were created by Find A Grave Nancy Ford #48188404 when she created the second listing for the cemetery. When Find A Grave merges cemeteries, they do not merge memorials.
I contacted Nancy Ford about this when I discovered the problem (you can see my communication with her on her message page) and asked her to see what she could do to eliminate the duplicates. I also asked her to request that Find A Grave merge the cemeteries. She did reply and indicated that she recognized the problem and was willing to do this, but stated that she was unable to figure out how to do it.
And so I am contacting you! Perhaps you could come up with a way of using the edit function to get the best info out there on the duplicate memorials condensed into one each? I believe most of the duplicate memorials that she created are duplicates of memorials you also created.
At least I have made you aware of the problem :-) Thank you for your time and let me know if I can help in any way.

Sorry it took so long to reply, but I was planning on going to Hogarth Cem. and taking pictures. Last Friday I searched for the cemetery and had no luck finding it. Would you by any chance know how to get to it? It's probably growed up with weeds by now.
I figured we were dealing with the same person and your memorial had a wrong death date on it. I'm not giving up yet on locating the cemetery. It's a long drive, but I'm gonna search again in a couple of weeks. I'll be in touch with update. Wimsang
