John Calvard Harris
Thank you for making the original memorial for John Calvard Harris - Find A Grave Memorial# 65007030. If you look at his memorial, you will see that I have added when and where he was born and died. I still need to connect him to his father's, John Wesley Harris, memorial but I am waiting on a person to transfer that memorial to me. Thank you for taking the time to be courteous and transfer the memorial to me. I am direct male line Harris descendent and I promise to be a good caretaker of this memorial.

RE: Correction
Sorry for the confusion! The person buried in our cemetery is F. Boye. We have no one named F. Boyd that I am aware of.
I think they are one in the same. 👍

F. Boyd is the same as F. Boye.

F. Boyd
Hi Shirley,
I think F. Boyd is the same person as F. Boys that you added to Find A Grave. We have no records, that I have been able to find for a F. Boyd.
If you have additional info that I am missing please let me know.

Oliver Crook
Could you please change his date of birth to Aug 14, 1818. Also his wife's maiden name was Trappal.
Thank you!

Would you provide the Find A Grave number of Oliver Crook so that I can research the information? Or, you may use the edit process and submit the requested changes yourself.

Hi Shirley;

OK, thanks so much for the information & for all your postings, too.

William Odgers #28386400
Hi Shirley;

You original posted the above Memorial for one of my relatives & then transferred to me. He's at the Sonora Odd Fellows cemetery.

I was wondering if you documented all the graves & headstone in that cemetery? Another member emailed me that my memorials for William's father, Daniel #73444031 & brother Robert #73913292 are probably buried there, too, but I had information that they were probably at the Sonora City Cemetery.

Could you let me know if you did a full or partial cemetery listing? Or is there any way you can find out if Daniel & Robert are buried there, too?

Thanks, Patsy

RE: St James Cemetery
Hi, Shirley!

I'm sure that you are correct, and I THINK that we have communicated before on other Tuolumne County cemeteries before in positive ways. I AM SURE that you know who may still have the cemetery map or is in charge of the cemetery who knows Cynthia's final resting place. Would appreciate the info. I have been trying to repopulate the Chinese Camp cemetery that I believe that you also were involved in.

Best wishes,
Brad Reinhardt

Thank You for all your time. I have been able to get help by finding so many of my ancesters in getting their dates and also finding my dates are correct, and their tombstone information on "Find A Grave". Betty
