Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been a member for nearly 6 years. Below happened about 5 years ago & is the reason I'm not fully active with FAG. I do try to help with requests as I believe family history is important. Too many markers are already gone, undecipherable or nearly unreadable. It's a shame some businesses have to abuse a site like this.

I no longer take pictures of entire cemeteries & post the pictures.

The reason for my change is when I asked for a transfer of a relative to me, copied directly from the email I received; "...but an employee for the cemeteries. We use the site to send family members to for research so we want to make sure the records (Findagrave's) correspond with ours." Not only did many of the "cemetery maintained pages" have errors in their postings, they are using for business purposes. They did not care if they had the right information or not, just as long as "their" information matched what they posted on Findagrave.

They told me to post a flower to their pages with the different info & my email address for relatives to contact me. They also explained how I could connect relatives to theirs, as if I didn't already know how. So nice of them! They did not want the correct information, only what matched paperwork or grave marker they had.

I could not find a way to contact FAG. After several attempts to do so with no avail, I deleted 100's of records many of which also had other information.

So, now I just do specific requests.

My family lines include: Marchand, Moran, Clark, Dougall, Beier, Hansen, Mickelson, Heinrich, Featherstone, Treblecock, and many more.

Recent Ryan Transfers
Thank you so much for the recent transfers. It really means a lot that I can piece together family information for future generations and it means a lot that there are people like you who are willing to share the memorials you created.

Thank you!
I was looking at my Dad's site (James Reed Jr.) on Find A Grave and saw the picture of "Cedar Hill Cemetery". Thank you so much for sharing that. You are most appreciated! C Yates

6610405.....this headstone and many others have been destroyed or removed by vandals, thank goodness you have the pictures you took. If you have any that have not been added to find a grave I know the families would appreciate seeing them.

Thank You

Esopania Powell Trent -Grandview Cemetery
thank you so much for this picture, she was my ggg grandfather's wife, last one of three....I have not found where he is buried but I am still searching and when I find him I can now link them which is one of my favorite task. Almost all of my family is buried in Breckinridge County somewhere....

Ivy Hill Cemetery and Old Ivy Hill Cemetery one has added photo of cemetery by you, do you know if both exist or just one I am noticing duplicate memorials in both and was wondering if the cemeteries needed to be merged.

James Martin Wales
First of all, thanks for all the work and time that you have spent. James Martin Wales is one of my ancestors and I was wondering if you would allow me to add the picture that you took of his headstone to my ancestry page. I would be glad to give you credit for the photo. Thanks Debbie

I was wondering if you have a clearer photo. I can not read the birth date. The reason I am asking is that I have seen the record that says she was married in 1878. Thank you for your help. You can email me at
