Dan Hooper
Richard Hooper d, 1887
I am a direct descendent of Richard Hooper, who was born in Cornwall, England in 1825. I notice that you list only his oldest son William James (by his first wife Nancy Jane Cummons), but not his five other children (by his second wife Margaret Jane Cox).

Is it possible for me to edit this memorial and add those relationships? It might help other people trying to trace their roots.

You may contact me at

Thanks, Dan Hooper

Hi Annette, I NEED YOUR HELP! Please let me explain. I asked for a volunteer to take the photo of my childrens Grandmothers headstone, Plot section III-A , Block 46, Lot c10. But he couldn't find it. I know she is buried next to her husband Lloyd LeEarl Adams, the family attended the burial, and I telephoned the Cemetery for her location. I have already made listings for both her and her husband on Find a Grave in THE KERN RIVER VALLEY CEMETERY 8441 Burlando Rd, Wofford Heights, CA.. Found out why he couldn't find them, he went to the wrong Cemetery based on your mistake. You have mistakenly listed The OLD KERN RIVER HISTORIC CEMETERY on Wofford Road and LISTED it INCORRECTLY AS the KERN RIVER VALLEY CEMETERY on 8441 Burlando Road , Wofford Heights, Ca. ( just across the street).I listed both grandparents in what I believed to be the correct Cemetery (The name being correct all else is not. How do we get this corrected ? Do I need to make a new listing for the newer Cemetery ? Do you correct the location of the Cemetery and correct the photo's and eliminate the "history" of the OLD cemetery. Do I have to delete both Grandparents because of you have the Cemetery name incorrect ? Help me please ! If you didn't do this , who ? We need to fix it. Thank You !

Hi Annette!

I wanted to let you know how moving the memorial you posted for Debra Kay Winslet is.

The poem: "Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep" by Mary Elizabeth Frye is especially touching. I don't know if Mary Elizabeth is a professional writer/poet, or if she knew Debra.

But if you know her personally, kindly relate my message to her about how her poem speaks to the heart. Anyone who has wept, feeling emptiness in the belief that her loved one is lost, will be heartened and hopeful by reading the poem.

Convey my thanks to Ms. Frye, if you have a means to do so.

You took a great picture of Sarah Bergen Watters Hunsaker and her husband Jefferson; may I use the picture on my tree and give you the credit for taking the pictures?

RE: All Souls
I guess some Find A Grave'ers actually were arguing LOUDLY about who would get to take the photo, so they stopped allowing "us". They told me to have the families call and they will personally send them the photo, weird, eh? I guess there was even a funeral going on, some can be so DUMB. I just want to help, someone else does it, GREAT:) I am glad you go there. Its a tad far for me (disabled) and not many will go there!

Hi Annette,
It's probably been 25 years, but I'm sure you remember me like I remember you. It's Dennise your half sister. My mom was helping me look up my dad's side of the family tree and stumbled across you...I was so happy that I just had to say hello. I would love it if we catch up some day.

Diane Cain
Heinbuch family
Hello Annette,

I just started to search for information for my nephews paternal line. His Grandfather was John Russell Brokaw who married Theresa Heinbuch. I believe they were married in Los Angeles County, California. They had fraternal twins, a boy & girl in 1949.

I see that you have a Frank Aloysius Heinbuch in Find a Grave. You also mention that he is a twin. I believe that there is a connection with my nephews grandmother Theesa Heinbuch.

I'm afraid we no little about Theresa Heinbuch, except that she divorced John Russell Brokaw and married again and I believe had twins by her 2nd husband (unsure of his name) as well.

I'm wondering if you may possibly know more about her.

Jerry Coffman
My Aunt
I have found my aunt interred 6/24/87 space Kb, Lot 270 Delphimium Section. In Forest Lawn Memorial-Park, Long Beach, Ca.
Her name is Loretta I. Lowery Born May 14, 1915 and died June 1987.
Also, I found my uncle is there also but I do not have the same type of info on him that I do on my aunt. His name is Clarence S. Coffman born 1905 and died in 1975.
I would appreciate it if you could get pictures of both headstones and post them on find a grave so others looking will be able to find them better than I did.
Thank you

Hi Annette, I was wondering if you knew Tracy Stack? She passed away March 9, 2011 and lived in Kernville. She was a good friend of mine when she lived in South Dakota. I would like to know where she is buried or if they scattered her ashes. I would like to enter her in Find A Grave and link her to her son and parents back here. Thanks for any help you can give.
