Sarah Locker death date
I checked my source and the date is January 4, 1865, according to the January 10, 1865, issue of the Daily Alta Californian, page 5, column 2.

"At Woodside, San Mateo County, Jan 4th, of consumption, Mrs. Sarah Locker, aged 71 years and 11 months."

A number of graves are accidentally noted with incorrect dates either by the informant or the engraver. My grandmother Died in December 28, 1958 but her gravestone reads December 28, 1959 because she was laid to rest in 1959.

Thanks for all your work in posting memorials.

Hi! Eric,
You posted a photo on 13 July 2014. Do you recall when you actually took this picture? The marker is very pronounced easy to read. The other photo posted in 2010 shows a very worn inscription. It appears that you may have taken this photo before 2010. I'd like to know if my observation is correct or if I'm way off. Thank you for your time & assistance. Have a nice Easter.

RE: Hanna Ginings
Just curious, I have Mary dying on 30 Sep 1807 in Braintree, Vermont but I haven't yet found a primary source to verify it. Do you know if that's correct, or do you have a marriage date for her and Nathaniel Flint? (I don't gather detail on non-direct-ancestor siblings but I do their birth, marriage and death dates.) If you don't have the information at hand, don't worry about it though.

RE: Hanna Ginings
Thanks! (Actually, I was kind of disappointed, since I thought I finally actually had a photo of Susannah's grave -- but oh well.)

I know, this is one of those names where the spelling is all over the map -- in my database, I generally use as their primary spelling whatever was on their gravestone (if there is one) or any other official documents -- but this is one where I have noted at least half a dozen other possible versions.

Which child of theirs do you descend from? I actually have two lines from them -- son Joseph and daughter Abigail.

Eric, I wanted to thank you for posting the photo of the stone of Capt. John Carter that you took this summer. It is so clear, and the details stand out so well. Capt. John is my 8th great-grandfather. I would like to ask if it's OK to copy the photo.

RE: John Bates # 80088620
Thanks so much, Erich, for making the correction on the year of death of John Bates. These old headstones can be really difficult to read, both from age and from the way they constructed their letters and numbers way back then.
Thanks again,

Charles Hightree Memorial
Dear Eric:

Thanks so much for the edits to the Charles Hightree memorial. Very much appreciated.

Just went onto your profile and see you live in beautiful Sonoma County. I was Santa Rosa born and bred and know just about every nook and cranny of the county ... but find myself living in Manhattan, Kansas, for the past 37 years where my wife and I are retired from Kansas State University. Manhattan is much the way Santa Rosa was when I was growing up - and now much changed, of course.

Best, Barry Michie
