Great research on memorials
Thanks for the diligent work adding information from death certificates and newspaper clippings.

I have a first cousin, once removed, whom I've tried to find information on for years, and years. Today I figured out a husband's name and found he was buried here. He was Wilfred Lodge, and seems to have been a member of a family that had a lot of tragedy. Should you come up with any information on how he died, I'd love to know about it. He was only 38 years old.

Thank you very much for taking a photo and for writing the information down. I have been looking for her for some time now and had thought she was buried in Ohio, The date are exactly like mine so I know she is correct. I do not want her transferred as she is a cousin 2x removed.

You emailed me an offer to send me an obit on Knute Steenerson for 2/12/1921 from the San Diego Union...saying he is buried in Greenwood Cemetery San Diego. I will certainly look for him there. Could I please have a copy of that would mean a lot to me. Thanks

Newspaper marriage record

I was browsing through the "Chariton Courier" newspaper on the Internet looking for a different Williams family member and I found a mention of the wedding of George Goll and Ida M. Williams in the Friday, February 24, 1893 edition of the Chariton Courier newspaper, page 8 of the newspaper.

The mention of the marriage of George Goll and Ida M. Williams is at the bottom of page 8, near the middle of the page.

Here's a link to that newspaper page:

I also looked on the Family Search website for Ida M. Goll and found a 1900 census record for George Goll and his wife Ida M. Goll, showing the month and year that they were born along with their children.

Here's a link to that 1900 census record:

I thought you might like to include this information in the bio section of the Find-A-Grave website page for Ida May Goll.

I recently discovered where he was buried. The manager of the original memorial refused to link him to his parents because their burials have not been located. His parents memorials were created in 2011 by another volunteer. I have requested Find A Grave merge the two memorials so that the links and other info will not be lost.

Thank you for your message regarding noticing duplicate memorials for Francis Teeney.

My memorial # 72149936 was created in Green Hills Memorial Park in June 2011.

Memorial # 65453037 was created as Burial Unknown in Feb 2011. It was changed just about a week ago to Green Hills Memorial Park, thus creating a duplicate. Its creator has graciously communicated an intention to delete. So all should be well soon.

With appreciation,

Thank you so very much for finding his burial location. I entered the memorial based on the obit I was posting and I am never quite sure if the newspaper got the cemetery name or location correct. I like it to be verified!
Hope someone comes forward that is related.
Thank you , again,

Hello Savannah Memorial Park,

I am trying to find information on some Penfolds. You have Stephen Penfold, memorial #26185955, in your cemetery.

I am looking for his father and brothers: John Penfold Sr. (1797-1884), John Jr. (1820-1874?), and Peter (1830-?).

If you have any information I would appreciate hearing from you....

Thank you, Shauna Johnson

RE: Jennie Edwards
Hello Heather,

thank you for the transfer of Jennie Curden Clinton Edwards. I don't want to give too much information here, but I am living out of the country and can't call this Bobbie Taylor. Furthermore, it would be better if she spoke with my mother, as mom met Jennie when she was a little girl. My mom being the granddaughter of Jennie's husband James Edwards. If you give Bobbie my email address, listed on my profile page, I'll be happy to reply and give her my mom's number in the US.

RE: Find A Grave Correction: Jennie Edwards
Hello Heather,

regarding Jennie Edwards at Savannah, yes, there is a more immediate family member out there. I believe a man named Roger is helping her great grand childen find more information on her life. If he or they want to manage her memorial, I'm all good with that, I wasn't sure they had accounts on here.

And yes, James married two Jennie's. The love of his life was the other Jennie, as they were together a good 40 years, up until her death. He was married to Jennie at Savannah for about 9 years, up until her death as well.

I'll be happy to wait.

And thank you,

Several years ago, I put all the records they had in the Book of the Dead at the Mission. The records came from their books. The books ran from 1910- The older records had already gone to the Diocese.
Hope this helps. Jim

RE: Frank Milor @ Savannah
Thank you for your information. I do have Frank Milor's death certificate. The informant was Los Angeles County General Hospital where he was a patient for 27 days before dying from tuberculosis.

They list his usual address as 403 5th St-LA. This was also was his address according to the 1940 census. This was a residential hotel on LA's skidrow to my understanding. There is no mention on his death certificate of living in La Crescentia. In 1935 he was living in Sacramento CA doing various jobs as a laborer.

If he died at LA County General Hospital, is it unreasonable that he would be buried at your cemetery unless the person who paid for it lived near El Monte Cemetery?

Was the plot purchased before his death date of March 2, 1942 or at that time?

Was it usual to buy two plots next to each other, pay for embalming and not place a gravestone? SVH77 kindly took photos for me and the surrounding graves had flat gravemarkers but apparently his did not.

If 2 plots are purchased, is it generally a husba nd/wife purchase?

Mater & Simone 2814 Broadway is listed on the death certificate but I couldn't find any old information on them. Would they have been chosen by the person who purchased the plots or did they routinely embalm patients from LA County General Hospital?

I have been trying to find out what brought him to Southern California. From all my research, he seems to be someone alone without much resources. But if someone purchased the gravesite with the same name, maybe he did have a family that cared.

Thank you for any further information you can give me.

Hezekiah's death record does state he was born in Hartford,CT, this is what is on the death record it is his birth & not the surname.

Re: Ida C Campbell
Look at the new LDS Church site. Charles Marion Campbell & Ida Christina Kilby marriage record in Richland Co. WI is there, her parents are listed as Hezikiah & Louisa Kilby, one Of Ida's siblings on marriage record had Hezikiah Kilby & Louisa Townsend. One of Charles & Ida's son, Charles Lorenzo died in Missouri in 1920 & the Missouri digital death certificate from the Missouri State Archives which is also online & free states has parents as Charles Campbell & Ida Kilby, he is buried in Dayton Corner Cemetery in Richland Co. with his grandparents Charles Gould 93347880 & Matilda (Woodman) Campbell 93347837(Charles Marion Campbell's parents). Ida's parents Hezekiah 55240990 & Louisa (Townsend) Kilby 55240927 are buried in Bovee Cemetery,Orion Twsp,Richland,WI. As far as the father's surname it may have been transcribed wrong & could possible be her father's 1st name Hezekiah or it could have been her father's place of birth which censuses state born in Connecticut & I know there is a town called Hartford,CT.
