Bio and Links
Bio Photo I would love to build the biographies (original stories) of any of the memorials I manage. So please feel free to send me what you would like me to add. Do not forget to write if and how you would like to be noted as a credit for the information... Name, partial name, handle, etc.

I am happy to cut and paste anything exactly as you send it to me so long as NO LIVING person is mentioned in the update. If it is not my Direct line, I am happy to Transfer once I have tried to get any valuable clues about my direct line. Please do not post obituaries on my memorials.

I am so thankful for the rewarding contacts I have made through Find A Grave. Several are family I never new I had. And they are wonderful.

I am glad for all those that I have been able to work with so far and for all those who I will be able to work with in the future. If I have not done something to your liking then please contact me as I wish to be respectful to all who work so hard to make Find A Grave what it is.
I promise I work with anyone who contacts me appropriately.

Best Wishes to all and God Bless.

Richard Anderson
Hubbs Name
I have a great grandfather named Bain Hubbs who died crossing the plains and was from the Kentucky/Tennessee area. I would love to hear from anyone who might have information about him. His name can't be a coincidence here.

RE: John Wesley Davis #57907370
I am related to John Wesley Davis and Margaret (Smith) Davis. They are my paternal great great GrandParents. Their daughter Sudie Davis, married John Richard Rapier. John and Sudie's son Robert Wesley Rapier married Myrtle Pittman and they had my daddy in 1948. Daddy was in the middle of the pack, lol. There were a total of seven children born to Myrtle and Robert.

No, I haven't done any research on Burrell Smith at this time. Ironically I have Smith's on my mom's side that are from Clay County. Smith's are a challenging surname to research.

Are you on Ancestry? Have you done DNA testing?

Find A Grave Memorial# 117384021 Flara Garland
April, I'm not sure if I still have your e-mail address or not. I just started back work on my tree again and found this memorial. Is this Flara or Flora? If you have my e-mail address still, hit me up there.

Requesting Permission to use Tombstone photos you've posted on Find A Grave
Hi April,

I would like to use the tombstone/Family photos you've posted on Find A Grave; that pertain to my families.

I'm working on my grandson's Stovall/Harrison/Brate families at this time.

I found the tombstone for John Lewis Sears, he is my grandson's 6th great uncle.

Thank you for sharing your hard work,

Sheryl Frazier Long

thanks april but really no bad news since i already knew about it. the other memorial is in the wrong cemetery and until mr west is put in the correct cemetery i plan on leaving mine. he has him in the hampton cemetery when he is really in the hamilton cemetery not even close to each other. i have sent the creator of the other memorial a message about this. thanks for the heads up... gabby.

Linda Blakley
Hi Cousin April, yes you are distant relative of my wife Linda Blakley Siliven, Her Grandparents death record says buried at Ages,Linda's is Elizabeth Perkins Blakley Powers , she was married to Hardin Perry Blakley and when he died in civil war, Elizabeth married Amos Powers. In the 1870 census they called the Blakley kids , Powers. Uriah Blakely is Lindas Great Grandfather, Hardins and Elizabeth son, Linda's Grandparents John Riley and Margaret Blakley are supposed to be buried there, others say the stone only says Blak. I am getting stones for them and will bring them down when weather permits. The topo map shows another Cemetery just up the road ,do you know the name of that one. Dan
