HAPPY HOLIDAYS !!
If you have any add'l info or corrections on any of the memorials I have posted please use the "EDIT" tab on the memorial to send me a "correction or suggestion." Please don't be offended if I ask for your resource(s). I'm not being critical, just thorough. My motivation is to provide historical records to others. "Pay it forward." If what I've posted helps you in your genealogy or provides you some comfort because you can visit a grave from near or far, then my mission is accomplished and I urge you to help others in some way.
Please do not ask me to link to a memorial where the final disposition is "burial unknown." Find-A-Grave's primary mission has always been to be a GRAVE depository. The "burial unknown" option was set up by FAG originally for recent burials with the provision they be removed after 30 days (see FAG Guidelines) or cremations. Over time it has transformed into a way to build a family tree. There are many other sites that do family trees really well. My commitment to this site is to finding where the individual was buried.
The image of the peacock was a logo for a talent agency business in 1969 located in
St Simons Island, Georgia. The owner, "Country Bill", aka Robert Lee Davis, born named Charles G Raymond, also had residences and/or connections in AL, FL, VA and MA. If you have any info on "Country Bill" or if you have seen this logo anywhere, please send me a message with any information you have by clicking below on "leave message." OR send a post to his Facebook page: click here.
Thanks for your help in telling the story of Country Bill's life/death.
I have a number of projects going at once and therefore some of my memorials are lacking details but are on my "to do" list...I try really hard to include a detailed biography on the memorials I create - most are not my family, I'm doing what I can to help others with clues - don't yell at me if what I have posted isn't what you think it should be - I am a VOLUNTEER and have a life full of challenges beyond FAG memorials, census records and birth/death certificates. I'm guilty of mistakes and oversights just like the recorders who wrote the info down over the centuries...
I don't mind if you use my pics for your personal use or even on your genealogy website but CREDIT FAG FOR THE PHOTO! If you save a photo to your computer from findagrave.com and then upload it to a website, reference findagrave.com and the memorial number, let others know about this website! Without the reference, I consider the image STOLEN.
May you and yours find a little quiet time for reflection and thankfulness as the holidays approach. May we all spread a little kindness and patience in all the seasons of our lives...
Upon my death I authorize any of my memorials to be transferred to any FAG contributor as they are requested.
[thanks to FAG Cathy Clark for this statement on her contributor page as this is my desire and agreement wholeheartedly - perfect and appropriate]
