The only accuracy that I can be sure of is that the headstone photo's I have put on Find A Grave are in the right Cemetery. Other memorial I have posted came from obituary information which stated burial. Thank you to all members who post headstones to these memorials. Your hard work and dedication to this project is very much appreciated.
If you would like to request a transfer of a memorial that falls within the guidelines, please use the SAC (Suggest a Correction process)and include your relationship to the person you're requesting, and your F.A.G. number.

I was wondering if you would't mind transferring the memorial me, as I am Loren Mellott's daughter.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.

|Sly||RE: Find A Grave double posting requirements|
Since you are more than willing to transfer Herbert Spurrier's & Dora Hornbeek's memorials to me, that would be great. He is my father & she is my grandmother, so I am a direct relative. I'm not angry at all & I have followed the rules & requirements. As for your gravestone picture, if someone had to walk that cemetery to find that gravestone, using nothing but your photo, they probably wouldn't find it because they would be looking for a blue stone,& it's black. The mission of Findagrave is to find, record & present final disposition information. If the information we're presenting is inaccurate, or, as in the case of Herbert Spurrier, the information doesn't come up when doing a name search, then we're not helping anyone & that just makes Findagrave look bad. There is already an accurate photo on Tyrie's page & I feel the inaccurate one should be removed because it serves no purpose whatsoever.

Please remove your blue photo of his black gravestone.

It's not an issue of wanting to add more pics than is allowed,I still have room. I just wanted to add a photo of the gravestone, that I took myself, to my baby's memorial page. But that's allright

Could you please remove your link to my grandfathers memorial? Bessie Nichols is my aunt. That does not qualify under the "family first" rule established by find a grave. However, my aunt in Lincoln is her only surviving sister, and Bessie does have two children: one in Wichita, and one in Fall City. If you do not remove your link on my grandfathers memorial: I will have her children open up an account, and ask find a grave to give them management.
I realize you already had a memorial before me: however, why would anyone deny family members the right to maintain their relatives memorial? I wrote to you once before: but since I didn't meet their criteria: you ignored my message.
I don't feel I should have to send you pictures. Once I get finished with Roy and Sis's memorial: I plan on transferring it to their grandchildren in Texas (who are very busy raising their children).
I realize you want credit for taking the pictures and placing a memorial on this website. However, you are not related, and did not even know my aunt. That is just the chance you take when you go through cemeteries taking photos of graves of people you don't even know, or aren't related to.

|BetsPix||Benjamin Lillard Hargis|
thank you so much for adding the grave of my kinsman, Benjamin Lillard Hargis, who was buried in Forest Hill Cemetery in Kansas City; you also had added the graves of his parents in Belton, so i am especially grateful to you (please see below the memorial numbers, which could be used in relationship links)
i have some information about him that you might want to add to his bio
He was the son of Benjamin Finley Hargis and his first wife, Pet Lillard Hargis of Kentucky, but was raised primarily by his stepmother, Henrietta Lillard Hargis, who was also the sister of his mother. He was elected in 1921 to the position of president of the Kansas City Board Trade, a position his father had also held.

|Dr. J.||RE: Gillispie|
I know of three James Gillispie's and probably none of them are the one you are looking for. G.W. and Mary E. had a son James G. (1868-1905) who is buried with his wife Belle in the Virgil Cemetery. Belle died and James remarried and had another child with a woman named Elida. When James died, Elida took off with her daughter and left four orphaned step-children to be raised by their aunt. Another James R. Gillispie (1840- ) was a brother of G.W. and I.T. and eventually died and is buried in Decatur County, KS. James R. had a son named James W. (1887- ) and I don't know much about the latter James. I have not run across a Ralph Gillispie, but he may be a descendant of I.T. I don't know of a Ralph with G.W. and Mary E.
