Maria Dolores Morales Rubio
The explanation of Lola's/Maria's location is in the picture's caption. To further complicate matters, I checked the U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007 & got a differnet birth month:
Maria Dolores Morales 22 AUGUST 1964 Mexicali, Mexico 31 Mar 1994

RE: Confusing Cemeteries
Thanks Lester. I've been "bugged" from the beginning with only that one inaccurate photo, especially since Fresno County #1 has been kept up. Finally decided to do something about it. : )

RE: Sarah Jane Machen (35662527)
Hey Cousin!! It is wonderful to meet a new relative. William Elijah Luker's (my 2nd great-granddaddy) family pretty much stayed here in the south Talladega County area... Sycamore, Alpine, Sylacauga, etc. It is wonderful that our family all live close and have family reunions once a year, all us cousins are close and love each other dearly. So glad my granddaddy and his brothers and sisters made sure that we all grew up together and maintained close bonds.
Funny you mention the Lukers & Machens intermarrying, my paternal grandmother Agnes Morris Luker was descended from the line of Machens as was my paternal granddaddy (her husband) William Louie Luker. So they were 3rd(?) cousins (not looking at my paperwork). "It" was something that wasn't talked about.. LOL. Hope we stay in touch. My is public, you are welcome to go look. I would be so interested in looking at your work. Thank you so much for contacting me! Love to you and my new relatives, Page

Sarah Jane Machen (35662527)
I have sent you an edit for the following:

Ophelia Luvenia Machen Luker (9297223) was the only child of Sarah Jane Machen (35662527).

Ophelia was born out-of-wedlock to Sarah Jane and her biological father remains unknown at this time.

Ophelia is my paternal great-grandmother, thus Sarah Jane my paternal great-great-grandmother.

It is amazing how much my mother looks like Ophelia.

Thank you in advance for making this edit.

RE: Ken Butterfield
Hi Lester,

There is a Kenneth Butterfield listed in the Cypress Lawn Memorial Park Where is grandmother is buried. His name is on the headstone there with a birth date of 1937 and no death date. I can send you a picture of this head stone if you are interested.

The information you have listed can be transferred to this listing.
Let me know

RE: Ken Butterfield
Hi Lester
Thanks for your response.

I have a Kenneth Kay Butterfield that was born
07 Mar 1932 in Contra Costa County, California and died 13 Dec 2005 Twain, Plumas, California. Without a copy of the death certificate I believe he is the same person that is buried in this cemetery. His father was Pursell Sherman Butterfield and his mother was Frances Eleanor Campbell.

Do you live close to this cemetery to get interment records for him. I think I sent for some sometime past. Will have to look and see and get back to you.

Do you have a death record for this person.

RE: Photo Use
Yes, I think it is redundant to ask too b/c the photo shows up on ancestry search within the find a grave info, but some folks are kind of strange about pics of my relatives headstones. Don't misunderstand I am very grateful to all you guys who take the time & energy to photograph; just agree with you. It helps me a lot if the Find A Grave bio gives blanket permission. And I do copy the pic so I can add it to my tree w the pic on the tree (versus it just being a link to a source). Anyway thank you so much for your permission & taking the time to do the upload.

May I use your photos of the Chase/Cart Headstones on my Ancestry tree? Thanks

Thank you for posting this photo. She would be my great aunt. She only lived to be 22 and I have been unable to find out a thing about why she died so young. She had many siblings that lived long lives. It made me happy to find this photo.

RE: Moises Aguirre
Yes, I saw that. Decided to take the chance that anyone else will notice that I will already have the other photos "done" when I take Moises's & leave them be. That way I can claim 2 others. Thanks for the heads up.

Wanted to let you know there is a photo of her stone only, it got bumped when I added the portrait. If you rather not have my portrait on there let me know & I'll delete it. I took photos of her husband's & son's stones if you'd like me to provide the photos for them too. Thanks!

FAG Memorial 82340969 John Alexander Patterson
Hello Lester:

Thanks for all you do for Find A Grave. Volunteers like you make such a difference.

I wanted to let you know you mistakingly placed the wrong photo of my great great grandfather, John Alexander Patterson on Find A Grave memorial #82340969.

He is buried at the Bethel Cemetery in Sanger, Fresno Co, CA.

Believe it or not, there were two John A. Patterson's in Fresno County. The first one, which you posted a picture was living in Fresno County, in the 1850s-1860s and worked with William Hazleton.

The second one, was my John A. Patterson, who didn't arrive to CA until 1904. I personally own his photograph and they are not the same people.

Would please be so kind and remove the photo you added to my gggrandfathers memorial on Find A Grave.

Thank you, kindly.

Dr June McCarroll- Memorial# 97081678
I forgot to mention, the Wikipedia article now has all three of her husbands mentioned. She was still married to Timothy P. Hill (though separated) at the time she was with James Robertson. She didn't get her divorce to Hill finalized until after Robertson's death, so likely this was common-law marriage. I lived over 20 years in the Coachella Valley, so her bio interested me.
