RE: We are very related
Thank you so much Michelle! Glad I found you. I would love to see your family tree when you get it back up and send me an invite. I sent Claudia a friend request. I accepted yours of course. My husband has a cousin in Payson Arizona. We keep talking about going to visit him. Say hello to your dad and hopefully we can meet up when you come to California! I don't have any of my Dads info in a family tree. Only my moms. But after I take a look at what you have, I will see if I have any additional information that I can share with you. So glad I accidently discovered you today! Was looking for my Dad's grave and that is how I found it.

RE: We are very related
I had a feeling you might be Launies daughter. We may have met. I was at Mardells funeral with my Dad. We live in Sutter Creek and I knew that Launie lived in or near Pine Grove. Are you in this area? I too have some information on the Brown/Mitchell/Wilson family. Someone did a ton of research prior to the internet and has all the info in the Morman Church in Salt Lake City. Did you know that Evelyn Mitchell Brown traces back all the way to the Crusades. The name was Irish and came from DeIreys. I have a CD that I bought from them with all the research. Do you have a way to share the family tree with me? How can we go about getting me the information? By the way, my father Edwin's wife Sadie died about a month ago. We are taking her ashes to Fresno the end of the month for a private family gathering. I don't know if your Dad knows or not. He visited her a year or so ago. My e-mail address is: So Hello Cousin!!!

Your very welcome! I have covered Evergreen for many years and remembered seeing the surname throughout the cemetery. If you need anything else from Evergreen, please do not hesitate to ask!

Fingers crossed for you that the other volunteer will be able to find Graces headstone this weekend!

Hi Michelle,

I'm sorry I couldn't find Grace's headstone, its possible that she does indeed have one, however, the section that she is buried in has yet to undergo restoration. Evergreen Memorial has been undergoing restoration for about the last 9 years or so, and her section, which is Upper Section 5, has yet to be touched. It is a disjointed, unorganized series of blocks and plots, for instance, they have block 235 right smack in the middle of block 105, etc. Also, the block map that I obtained years ago is incorrect, at times. Graves that are listed on the website as being on the East end, are in fact, located on the far West end, (sometimes, but not always.) So, when I get a request for this section, I always walk the entire section, East to West. It could be simply that I missed it, or perhaps, it is unmarked. Regardless, another photographer will be combing the area this weekend for it. Perhaps he will have better luck in finding it.

Did you know that there are 5 people buried here by the surname of Porteous? Perhaps they are your family?

Take care and good luck in your research!

I'm related to Catharine Hisem McVey. She had a daughter named Diana Who had a son named William Leonard Dickerson who had a son named William Arthur Dickerson my grandfather. My father was a Sullivan who was raised in Bakersfield, MO. My dad's family was from the Ozarks. I would love to know if you had anymore information on Catharine's family or pictures. Ahh we all love pictures and stories! Michelle do you mind if I asked you who you descend through? I've been connecting to cousins I didn't know I had through comments left on Find A Grave. I hope to hear from you if you have time! Janet Oles

Horton / Redman
I just double checked and they are decedents from William Horton and Mary Adeline REDMAN my grandfathers AUNT. Plus there are Horton's in Delta County because the cemetery most of my Nelson's family is buried in is called Horton and its in the community of Horton.

Hi Michelle,

I am wondering where the photo of Ron Horton came from? Memorial #24351507. Is he a part of your genealogy? I'm looking for a photo of him to use in a documentary that includes him, and am hoping to find someone to provide one.
Thank you!!

Carrie Crum
I attempted to fulfill your request for Carrie today. Although the Cemetery does have her listed as being intered there, they have no record of her location there. When this happens, along with the person not showing up on the cemetery's website, it usually means it is an unmarked grave.

I am sorry for this, but the cemetery's caretaker and records kepper is a Doug Basolo, and can be reached at (805) 524-3877, if you would like to seek further info. Let me know if you want me to report this as a problem, or if you want to delete your request.

I didn't add any of the info you sent me; I thought you would probably wish to do it.
Have fun.

Before I add the information you have sent me, would you prefer that I transfer her memorial to you? I would be more than happy to do that; then you can add and change information as you wish.
Let me know.
God bless....

RE: Brown (Samuel, Mary & James) Canyon Hill Cem
You are most welcome. We just add photos and obits, if we have them, in order to try to help others find family relatives. I have transferred Samuel, Mary, and James Brown to you. If any of the other Browns are related, just let me know and I will transfer them to you also. My husband and I enjoy taking cemetery photos and hope someone will find valuable family history that way.

RE: Hortons at Santa Ana Cem
Hi Michelle: Unfortunately, the records at this cemetery are extremely limited. It is a very old cemetery (I think 1880 something is the earliest grave). Over half the graves are not even in the records. There were no other dates available on these Hortons. I was so disappointed when I got to the spot and found only Martha having a headstone. As to who is in graves 2 and 3, they are Inf M. Horton in grave 2 and Floide in grave 3. I posted the same photo for them, so others would not look for a headstone that doesn't exist. Sorry that wasn't more information. Chris

Hortons at Santa Ana Cem
Hi Michelle: I went to the cemetery yesterday to look for your Horton requests. I obtained their locations, but when I got to the plot, the only grave marked was Martha Horton. She is buried in grave 4, Marshall is buried in grave 5 and should have been next to her. Elmer is buried in grave 1, and should have been 6 feet above her. I took photos of the grass area where the graves should be and have posted them. If you do not wish those photos to be posted on the memorial, let me know and I will remove them. So sorry to have to give you such bad news. Chris
