Photo requests -can you cancel?
Hi, I was looking at local photo requests and two are open for Samuel & Abigail Cande in West Haven Green Cemetery from 2007 but pictures were placed in March 2011 and should have cleared the request. Someone even looked for them and listed a problem May 30 2011. Weird that they are open. Are you able to cancel your own request on your end?

Frances Dodson Turner New
I saw your request for Frances New's headstone. The Turner Cemetery is on private property. In 1999, the owners allowed my parents, and grandparents on the property. They snapped some photos of the headstones. Again, it was in 1999, and the photos aren't the best quality. I wanted to let you know, since you had specifically requested a photo of her stone. Thank you.

Ada Taylor
Hi! Thank you for your hard work on this site. My grandmother's middle name is misspelled and I would like to correct it. Her name is Ada Hesentine Chamblee Taylor. Somehow the Hesentine was misspelled and since it is a family name I would really like to correct it. Thanks.

Alice Hockel - message 2
Can you tell me who requested this? I actually met Alice's partner's sister while taking this photo, and she would be interested in hearing from her family.

You requested a photo of the grave of Alice Rita Werner Hockel on November 12th. I was out of town and unable to get the photo until today. It is now in FindAGrave.

Could you please correct the spelling of Edna's name? It should be Matthews.

Hearns near Watertown, TN
Have now set up Ebenezer Hearn cemetery in Wilson Co., TN, to receive your following memorials:
Ebenezer Hearn #20431316
Wm F Hearn (and Sarah) #20431272
Rufrus Hearn #20431292

Currently their memorials are listed in Hearn Hill cemetery, which is 8-10 miles away from the "correct" location. Not surprising, since the county has at least 6 Hearn cemeteries, of which 4 are now listed.

Since the new cemetery includes GPS coordinates and access information, it should be much easier for someone to get these photos for you.

Hearns near Watertown, TN
I hope to confirm the markers of your Wilson Co Hearns when weather and landowners allow.

William, Rufus and Ebenezer are all buried on the north end of Linwood Road, according to available tombstone transcriptions. Current and previous topos show the cemetery on the Grandstaff farm. This cemetery is NOT one of the 2 Hearn cemeteries currently listed on Find A Grave, but, in fact, a 3rd. Lots of Hearns.

Since I removed the photo requests, thought I should pass along the reason. Please let me know if any difficulties.

RE: Savage graves
I transferred them to you over 2 years ago (which is also when the message was left). Kind of a time warp. It took me awhile to figure that out since I knew I hadn't photographed any Savages lately.

Grave for Leonard Fite... I would like to update him as well as all of his children I have found. Would you transfer him to me and if you want him transferred back, I would be glad to. Thanks.

Also family members, Jacob Fite, 21468222 and Peggy Fite 21468242.
