Ancestry's acquisition of this website has greatly diluted it's integrity and my participation in documenting to this site. Please do not assume I am the source of incorrect information. I can't fact check every correction or bio I receive. Please do not send me undocumented dates. I will not add them to any memorial I manage especially if they come from census records or are estimated dates. This information will be included in the biography section. Especially in the case of infants with only one date on their headstone or in their interment record. All corrections will include a link to the original contributor of information in memorials.
Any correction that is snarky, condescending in nature or any in which one resorts to name calling will be deleted and all future correspondence unanswered. There are those I have reached out and made conciliatory efforts that were rebuffed or ignored, those contributors have already been filtered out of my email and they can send any email corrections directly to edit. I can't stress the next paragraph enough!
Find A Grave is a volunteer website with no return other than the satisfaction it brings to each contributor for their own personal reasons. I have devoted ten years of volunteer service to documenting graves in and around Montgomery. Not once have I ever claimed perfection in regards to my entries here. We all can and do make errors, I don't care who you are.
It is not necessary to add salacious, titillating content as photos. Details of death should be concise and to the point. Not all of us need to be privy to the horrors of one's death.
I am not sure where Findagrave got the idea that Oakwood was ever called Eternal Rest except that perhaps they and other contributors are confused because Eastwood Memorial Garden's, located Wares Ferry Road, was and still is an independent burial whose name was once Eternal Rest. It is discrepancies such as this that have me turning more and more towards Billion Graves where at least the location of a grave is documented via GPS.
Please do not use any of my photos without permission. Some of us have driven a long way and put many miles on both feet and vehicles to document graves. The very least any of us can do is to acknowledge that person's time and effort.
