Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you find a post that I have made that has an error and would like me to make a change, I will be happy to do so IF:

1. it is a request......I'm too damned old to take orders.

2. it is made politely and courteously - I don't work for you!

3. there is sufficient info for me to correlate that info to the submitter

4. I'm not on findagrave every day, so don't assume that I'm ignoring your request

I've received many pieces of information from numerous people that read "1853 not 1953" or "it's Ethyl not Ethel".

The info that I post comes from people or sources that I deem reliable, however, There could be errors! If you find one, I WANT to change it, but I won't, just because YOU say so. Without substantive proof that you have info that is MORE reliable than I already have will NOT cause a change to happen.

A lot of what I have posted as come from books, and "public records", etc. Therefore, I am only the poster and the information could be wrong. If it is about your grandmother, I would assume that you would know more than some generic source.

Keep in mind....I probably don't know your relatives, so to chastise me for making an error in a posting is not only rude, but offensive.

Bottom line. Civility and courtesy will result in civility and courtesy.

Being uncivil and discourteous will probably get you a good ol' southern "cussing out" and I will ignore any further communication from you.

I'm sorry to be so forthright..............No I'm not. It is what it is!

Hi Jerry,
You are the one who helped us in our search for Laura Margaret Wortham Strain and her dad, Nathaniel Green Wortham at Odd Fellows Cemetery in McCrory, Arkansas. You tried to find her half sister, Mary Adena Wortham and hubby Emmett Smith, but could not find them. (Email Sept 2010) Anyway, they have just now been found in the Beard Cemetery where Nannie's husband, John L. Long is buried. You told me about the cemetery listings you have in an email. Could you try to find Allen Strain who died between 1900 and 1910 in Woodruff Co. He was with his daughter, Lillie McGregor and hubby Tom in 1900 in Cache. He was born in Tenn. in Dec. 1816 by my records.
Thanks again for your help. Will you add to Nannie that her parents were Allen and Mary Elizabeth Wade Strain?
Keep up the good work.

Hi Jerry, Thank you for creating the memorials for my family members. You've created several of them! I sent several suggestions for edits via findagrave but I'm wondering if you might need to look up how to approve edits when you receive them?

You've been using my corrections/additions, thank you for that! But instead of using the approve button to make the changes, you manually make the changes yourself instead of using "approve" to make the changes.

It will save you time if you simply approve the changes. And my list of edits waiting for approval won't sit there for eternity with the LARGE RED LETTERS showing you used the information but didn't approve the edit. :~) I have 5 of those.

If you need help learning how to use the approve button please let me know? Or findagrave has a tutorial you can use as well.

I hope this helps!

RE: White
Ooops..bad computer skills:( I was wondering if you could give me directions to the WHITE CHURCH CEMETERY in Monroe Ark. For some reason, I cannot find it on the internet. I am going there this weekend to get a pic of a relative of mine.

Oh, I forgot...Mr. Capshaw, Eva B. (Pruitt) McCarver was D. P. McCarver's second wife. She's buried in Woodmens Cemetery.

Thanks again.

P P. McCarver / D. P. McCarver
Hello Mr. Capshaw,

Thank you for your dedication to researching and posting cemetery sites on FindAGrave. My Aunt Dot's father was Dump Plato McCarver (I'm not making that name's unusual to say the least!) The only grave I've found that matches his birth and death dates is the subject P P. McCarver in Woodmans Cemetery, McCrory, Woodruff County, Arkansas, USA.

Could the first P be a D...perhaps the stone was difficult to read or something? I certainly would appreciate your opinion on it, if you have a little time to communicate with me.

Thank you in advance for your help.
Cordially, Gail Barnes in Georgia
