Bio and Links
Being part of the Smithville Mo Historical Society has caused me to visit various locations of interest and that includes cemeteries. Always carrying a camera made me join the volunteer FAG status. I gladly cover the area around my hometown Smithville, which includes Clay/Platte
counties and sometimes I venture out into Clinton county.

RE: martin brooks 15191943
I changed his name to Martin M Van Buren Brooks.

That way it includes both the information on his tombstone and on his birth certificate.

You have a lovely memorial for this interesting woman. Today, I found a duplicate, #135625802. It's been made on the family farm. I was reading some land records and realized right away she would be buried in Plattsburg. She was easy to find, and I'm so pleased I was able to see her gorgeous stone.
I shall write to the person who made the duplicate and tell her it confused me, then ask her to delete. I'll leave it to you if you wish to contact Find A Grave. These things are so troublesome!

RE: Charles Shinn
I'm not certain why you need to "manage" a memorial to add info to it when there is a edit button provided for that?
I will give you credit for adding the bio.


Determine if you really need the memorial transferred to you for management. Only request transferring of management if you have extensive changes to make to a memorial. You can add photos and suggest corrections without having to request management.
Transfer requests will be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Any non-direct relatives are not required to be transferred.
The "Suggest a correction" feature may be used to submit corrections, such as an original biography.
The goal is not to "own" every memorial, the ultimate goal is to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.

If you have any further questions you can contact Findagrave at

Hi, I appreciate your willingness to complete this memorial, however, I adhere to the guidelines of Findagrave and only transfer to family members.
I am willing to do a very nice job of adding the information you provide.
Thank you for your input!

RE: Charles L Shinn, 61182459
Hi, in response to your questions regarding this memorial I can only attempt to recollect as it was created 7 years ago;
Upon viewing the memorials of him, his wife, and son; I see I had connected man and wife from son's obituary and wife's info was from MO death certificate. Since she died 30 years before him, perhaps he had a second wife of which I have no info. As was/is common practice, mates are usually buried with their first husband/wife.
If you have a bio you would like for me to add, please send along and I will add it.
I have family living in the Smithville area and have gone to the graveyard there in the past and photographed headstones which I later added here for documentation so others could find them.
Thank you for your input,

Malinda was my 2X great grandmother. She was an extraordinary woman about whom I have much more information for her memorial. Would you please transfer her memorial to me?

Thank you.
