Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy for more years than I care to remember and all of my family knows that it has become an obsession. I love doing the research and finding new relatives. But I am not just a name collector I like to know if the person is related even if it is only distantly. My niece Jan Bean is helping me to add family members to this website. I really appreciate all of her help and support. I have added memorials that are not related and I am happy to do transfers of memorials that are not part of my family. PLEASE DO NOT ADD EXTRA HEADSTONE PHOTOS OR PHOTOS OF CERTIFICATES to my memorials, this leaves room for photos of the deceased within the five-photo limit on unsponsored memorials. DON'T JUST TAKE MY PERSONAL PICTURES OF PEOPLE, PLEASE ASK PERMISSION.

RE: Photo
You are very welcome. I really enjoy taking pictures for family members to help them have a little more information of their loved ones passed.

You are welcome
You are welcome. I am so grateful for all the times that people have taken photos of my loved ones head stones. So happy to "pay it forward" to you and others who have helped me out.

Would have been faster but I accidently sent it to my friend Beth and had to get her to send it back, my brain for some reason did that!

RE: Chester A. Davis
Yeah, it is very frustrating that the comments don't come through to the other person.

I discovered that a while ago, and it is very frustrating because I am very willing to provide supporting data if needed, but always have to start a back and forth conversation about why was it declined so I can provide the requested data that the person wants.

Why Find A Grave bothers to give us a field to list our decline reason, misleading us to think we are entering data that will be sent to the other person, then not even have the reason be sent to the other person is very odd. It makes us waste our time. We all do this on a volunteer basis, and time is not something any of us have to waste, even if it is just 15 minutes here and there.

But, thank you for your help Sharon. I appreciate it very much. And, thank you for the transfer.

John :)

RE: Chester A. Davis
Good evening Sharon,

I wasn't offended at all. I just saw that you declined my edit request and it didn't give any explanation why it was declined. SO, I thought I would contact you about it.

All that I got from you was this automated email message:

"This is an automated email letting you know that your recent edit for the Chester A. Davis (1920 - 2007) Find A Grave memorial has been declined.
General reason: Not accurate - Their data conflicts with my data."

There was no specific reason given, and no request for source information. So, I decided to contact you about it, that is all. No offense taken, just wanted to know what source you had that was different than mine.

Yes, please transfer him to me, that would be nice.

Thank you for your help.

John :)
