Well, hopefully Marjorie's shoulder troubles will keep improving.... physical discomfort/pain makes one lose sleep....and then when a body is weakened, it becomes harder to heal. ach.

Good on the watching the on their performing poorly!

Good to hear from you!

Hi John,

I am related through his wife Mary Jane (Krigbaum) Clarke. I had requested a photo of her gravestone several years ago and was looking at it again today after a volunteer gave me the Yubacounty web site and I found that you had previously entered them and also their children including some nice photos for Eliza Jane and Byron Bradley Taylor; all I had for her was her name and no spouse. I wanted to thank you for your hard work and know that I sure appreciate it, bob

Hi, thank you for the update for Lillian's burial. Lillian was married to my cousin Walter Fred Evanikoff.

Are you related? Perhaps we are also cousins.

I notice that you have a picture posted on the Find A Grave site #71303657 for George Calvin Jackson. Are you a Jackson family researcher?? I am a von Breyman family researcher and his mother's maiden name was von Breyman. She was a sister to my grandmother. If you are a researcher, I'd love to touch bases with you! Thanks so much!

James, Ida, Edward and Violet Timmons
Hi John, I finally got into the little locked house of James and Ida today and there on the east wall were also Edward and Violet, sharing their niche with two other copper-colored book volumes of ashes (not with the surname of Timmons). Am editing all photogaphs over the next few days, so please check back. I will email you all once completed. Kind regards, Bridey Light

Jim's family group!
Ahoy John! I brought the new documents you emailed to me to Jim's house, along with the photographs of you and Joy at your birthday party. Showed all to Jim and Carrie. Jim said, "It's good that Rick is back in the family, thank John for me!" So now they have your faces to go along with your names. Your work is appreciated very much by Jim and his family! Kind regards, Bridey Light

Leo L. Boutin and Donald William Boutin photo requests are in, too!
Dear John, Thanks to your research in finding the cemetery of Edward Boutin, I have located his two sons (who were two of the brothers of Clifford Charles Boutin), Leo L. Boutin ( and Donald William Boutin (, also interred in Calvary Cemetery in Bayfield, WI. I have put in their photo requests with interesting notes in their bubbles. Nice photos you have already posted for Edward Senior and Junior! How did you DO that?! Kind regards, BL

What an amazing photo you have posted on her memorial. Do you have a background story by any chance? Thanks for posting the photo.

RE: The Borlands
You're welcomed, John. Was surprised that Hazel Borland did not already have a memorial so was glad to be able to visit the family and get them connected.

RE: Wilbur Photo
John: You are right - there was only one grave in section 15 lot 204 for Merrit Wilbur. Arkie Wilbur was listed as section 15 lot 204 also but there was an empty space. I'm very sorry, I thought I sent you a message about that but guess my mind is slipping. Taking pictures at Cape County Memorial Park Cemetery is very challenging. Do you run into places like that? The secretary at the office out there has told me twice she cannot look up burials for anyone except a relative. One person told me she offered to do it for $5.00 a person. And there is no way I'm going to pay that as a volunteer. So there were over 150 requests that had "backed up" over the winter and I made a trip over to Jackson to the Historical Archives and spent a couple of hours writing down locations. But once you find the section, it is still a matter of walking row by row to find the grave. Does it sound like I'm complaining? I don't mean to do that, I love helping people out and others have blessed me with pictures. Ruth

Photo Fulfillment
Thanks for posting the headstone photo for Richard Adams in the Fairview Cemetery. Was in hopes that his date of death had been added by this time. He died in 2011.

Thanks again,

RE: Ward Gaasch
Confusion on my part, apparently--the accident happened at some point late Friday night into early Saturday morning. He wasn't found for a short time, and some accounts have him dying Saturday morning. Most say Friday night, though, and I'll change that.

Thank you!
