RE: Floyd Francis
Awesome!!! Thank you! Thank you!!! I passed this information along to my grandpa and grandma. This fits hand-in-hand with the story that he was mining for gold in Northern California under the name Floyd Francis.

There's also a story that John Franklin Flood's (Floyd Francis) father used the same assumed name to fight in the Civil War. He was allegedly from Canada. Both father and son were lumberjacks in Michigan and Minnesota.

RE: Alice & Robert Norton
Thanks so much for all the names! Now I have a lot more people to research. I knew the names of Alice & Robert's children, but I haven't yet had a chance to look for spouse info. Thanks for all the clues! Frank was my grandfather. His ashes were placed in Denver, CO. I just put a photo request for Ernest too.

You mentioned that you knew some of the family. It seems that you knew them pretty well.

Thank you again!

LOL! Don't you just love it when computers hiccup. Thank you again for all the photos. I'm just starting the genealogy on this branch of my family, so I would absolutely love to know who is buried in the family lot, if it's not too much trouble.

THANKS!

Thank you!
Thank you for taking the photo of the grave of who we believe to be my Great-Great Grandfather, John Franklin (Francis) Flood. I passed this along to my grandpa, and he was very pleased.

Back in the 1920s and 1930s, he left Michigan and went to California and would travel under the name "Floyd Francis." We're not sure what he was avoiding. Rumor has it he did time in the state jail and was running.

Many of his children tried to find his grave because they heard it was in Eureka; however, they were looking in the wrong place. It was Yreka.

Floyd Francis' last son died a few months back, but we were able to let him know about where his dad is buried before he died.

I'm going to try to pull up the Floyd Francis death certificate to see what he died from. He really wasn't that old. (Apparently he would write to my great-grandma in Michigan and ask for money.)

Thank you again. We really appreciate it.

RE: Thanks for the photo/Johnson
I hate to say that the residents of Amelia Island, FL had a similar experience about 5 years ago. So sad as they both were so young,but they were both American Warriors.

Mr. Johnson had 2 or 3 memorials on Find A Grave and I requested them to be merged. Then thought a grave marker photo was needed to finish his memorial.
Thanks again.

Thanks for the photo
Thank you for posting Stephen Johnson's grave marker photo on his Find A Grave memorial. As you can see he was a special person. Your kindness is most appreciated.

You sound a lot like me! I've made many friends here on this site, too.

You take care and have a Happy Thanksgiving. I hope the whether is nice up in Siskiyou. It is such a beautiful county. I don't get up that way very often, but I sure do like it.

Best regards,

RE: O.B. Barkley
You're welcome!

One of the things I like to do, is that when the groundskeepers remove fake flowers from graves and put them in the bin, I take them and keep them in my car. When I feel the spirit move me, I put the flowers in mausoleums, for people with no flowers. You would not believe some of the items I have found in or near the trash bins. Artificial flowers with the price tags still on, glass vases, etc. The groundskeepers will mow around them sometimes, but after a few weeks they gather them up and put them in the trash! There are so many crypts in the mausoleums with no flowers, it is such as shame to see these items getting tossed, so I put them to good use.

If you need anything else, just let me know.

Best regards,
B.J.

Hello! I am about to fulfill your photo request but unfortunately, it is a photo of the area, only. His grave does not have a marker. I know that I'm in the right place because there are plenty of number plugs for navigation. I placed some yellow artificial flowers to mark the place.

I am sorry this was not a more positive outcome. I am always disappointed when there is no marker.

Best regards,
B.J.

RE: Abigail Tyler
hi there,
Well, Houston, we have a problem then with our Abigails!! The headstone I photoed clearly states that Abigail is the daughter of Nathan and Mary and is situated in the same row as Daniel's (as well as Mary's) grave.
Also the grave yard isn't that big and I didn't see any other graves for Tylers.
Could the Find A Grave info have been wrong?

RE: Abigail Tyler
You are right about the sun! Great to be in the sun, but it's not good for pictures! I think I might go back again on an overcast day. I really want to get a good picture for you of Abigail and Daniel's parents, Mary and Nathan.

You will love the inscription on Mary's. Something about being a kind person devoted to the poor!

Take care. Wish I could have done better with Daniel's photo but the inscription is almost impossible to read.

I Googled "how to clean gravestones", so for lichen, I am only using the soft brush.

RE: Abigail Tyler
rory, it looks like there are two memorials for your Abigail Tyler. Can you combine them?
I had inadvertently left one picture on each one. I removed the picture from one to lessen confusion.

RE: Abigail Tyler
my pleasure! I also love to find these old gravestones, especially on a beautiful fall day like yesterday.
In regard to the inscription, I hope it showed up; I had put it in the photo description. I will double check.
AND! I am going back today to take some more of your Tyler family. I just needed to bring a scrub brush because the lichen is very heavy in this old cemetery.
Stay tuned!

Yes she ws a character but much loved. At the bottom of her tombstone (look close) it says" Loved by All" and she was.

RE: Winters
I sent the picture to your email address. Also reread a paper that was sent to me on the Whittle tree. that said Luther was buried in Round Mountain. I only know of the Holcomb cemetery there and I never saw his name on a headstone there. I can send you the paper also, although some of the information is wrong.

RE: Mary Elizabeth Walker
I have a picture that is said to be Maria, Josephine and Luther Whittle. It would have been taken around 1850 or 1851.

I have a question for you. Peter Winters d 1899 in Oak Run, Shasta Co., but was buried in Chico Ca a distance of 87 miles. He is buried in the Civil War Veteran's section of the cemetery there, but do have any idea why the family (left destitute)would take him so far to be buried?
