DO NOT USE MY EMAIL IN THE BIO FOR A SOURCE WHEN ADDING MY EDIT INFORMATION. It adds an incredible amount of spam in my mail due to web robots. "Volunteer 46947920" or my name will suffice nicely.

This was a wondrous site where the upcoming generations can easily find their history and ancestors. Even after we are gone, our work will remain. Thank you, Findagrave.

My tree was done generations ago, thanks to my ancestors. Now my time is spent on documenting cemeteries, research, linking memorials, reuniting families, and connecting the dots; my virtual flowers now represent edits. Quality, not quantity.

We are all simply the guardians of those we have kindly added until their family comes along. I am eager to transfer anyone who is not family to family. BUT, request through the system, not here, not email! Demands will be ignored, "please" is simply common courtesy.

I take my heritage, 'graving' and documentation very seriously and most respectfully. Accuracy is of the most utmost importance to me, not who 'owns' a memorial. If I have made an error, please, please, let me know, politely. If you are rude, I will ignore you.

** I spend over half my time on Findagrave JUST sending edits to admin for duplicates. PLEASE double check before you add a historical person from the 1600's or back. Most likely, they have already been added.

** PLEASE read the FAQ concerning BURIALS UNKNOWN. They are to be used for RECENT deaths only, not your 176th great grandfather whose burial is 'not located yet.' I adhered to the rules, please do the same. I will not link to an unknown burial.

** If your pictures are crooked, of poor quality, out of focus, too dark to read, taken at night, shadowed, or the stone is covered in dirt or weeds, or your finger was in front of the lens, I will add my photo on the memorial. I apologize, I do not intend to offend. It is not out of disrespect for the other photographer, it is out of respect for the deceased and the family who might appreciate a good photo of the stone. Please have the gumption and consideration to post only decent, well thought out photos.

**USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION ON THE MEMORIAL you want updated for updates requests, transfer requests, or general inquiries for ANY memorial, it gives me easy access to the memorial in question, I have entered thousands. I will Ignore and delete suggestions, requests and updates and inquiries left here or in email.

You asked if I was related to her. She was my maternal grandmother. Sorry for the delay, I just now saw this message.

RE: William A Cox 139238851

No, I'm not related that I've found so far. His father was Mayor of Ottawa in 1894 and is on Find A Grave's famous list at a local cemetery.

When I go to local cemeteries to get photos for myself in addition to trying to fulfill requests I also look for famous burials that have no monument photos.

In William's father's case I added the other family members and did a bit of research to find his children and link them to their parent's memorials.

RE: Thank you!
You are welcome. And Thank you for all of your contributions. I grew up in Big Oak Flat, Groveland area and appreciate your efforts to add more information and family links to the Find A Grave memorials. I knew many of the residents & families of Big Oak Flat and Groveland area while growing up, going to school and later as Postmaster at Big Oak Flat & Groveland (1973-1983). I am compiling more information & memories on the families that lived there while I was growing up (1946-1958 & up to 1983) but it has been a slow process since I still work 7 days a week. I wish I had more time to work on this but I now live in Nevada and don't get back to California very often.
Thank you again and God Bless you,

The mewhinney family comes through my wife's father's line, Taylors out of Oklahoma/Texas. As I attach sources on FamilySearch occasionally I make updates to the findagrave entrees I find are missing information. I appreciate all your hard work and the update that I recommended. Thank you.

You have a picture of Mergie as a baby with her older brother Vernon. Vernon, however, appears to be her younger brother, born 1892. Could this be Riley David, who was born in 1882?

I am so glad that I was able to find her for her family. I love solving genealogy mysteries.

Dear Anne, I have transferred the memorials for Clinton and Mary Shurtliffe to you. You will do a better job of maintaining their information than I will. Have fun. Tom

RE: Thank you!
You are so nice. Think I have a little OCD regarding edits. :o)
