Jeremiah Nathan Jaquish
Hi Martha, Thank you for the information on Jeremiah Jaquish. His father was a brother to a 3rd great-gandfather. I had never been able to to find a death record. But now, California death records from 1905-1939 and that is how I found your entry on Find A Grave.

RE: Dinkel/McBride again
Yes, the Dinkel & McBride graves are next to each other in Block 2, Section 13. The Huntley family are neighbors.

Dennis & Edmonds
I fulfilled the photo requests for these families.... Mary Dennis and Fred Dennis already have memorials with photos attached. The Dennis family is a large family plot, there were 2 other people buried there that you did not request... BELOUD, ALICE G.(WIFE OF FRED DENNIS)she died very young and DENNIS ADELAIDE D., there are memorials already added. The Edmonds family has a large plot not so close to the Dennis's and some right next to the Dennis's I cant help but wonder if there somehow related? There are a lot of Edmonds in this cemetery several generations it looks like. The cemetery is only 10 miles from my house so its really no trouble to drive there let me know if you want anyone else.

Fanny Prang memorial
Hi Martha,
Thanks for contacting me re. Fanny's maiden name. She married my great grandfather, Geo Lewis Shields. I remember her well (her accent always reminded me of my maternal, Swedish great grandmother!) but I never knew her birth family name. Do you have documentation re. her maiden name & more info re. her birth family? Would love to add more including pictures!
Kindest thanks,

RE: Jewell Ellen Manning Memorial

I am actually related to Ralph Manning, Jewell's second husband. Ralph's brother, Robert was my great-grandfather. Both Ralph and Jewell were married before. According to the 1920 census, there were two boys named Cameron and Needhall who were living with them. I have not been able to find any information stating that the two boys were Ralph's through his first marriage, only that he had a daughter that died at age 5. So, it would appear that the two boys were Jewell's, but would still like to know more.

Queen of Heaven-Naughton
Hi Martha-me again...while wandering to another site I saw a Naughton headstone which is very close to the Francis and Gloria Naughton site I posted earlier. The headstone is for 'beloved son' Mark S Naughton (1955-1977) and 'beloved son' John F Naughton (1956-1981). They are in the block just next to Francis and Gloria. If you are interested in them and create memorial pages just let me know and I will post the picture. These are in addition to the Thomas Naughton and Janice Goodwin (Naughton) stone which is next to Francis and Gloria.

Queen of Heaven-D'Agostino
Hi Martha-I posted pictures for Joseph and Rose D'Agostino as requested. They have individual ground markers but there is also a stand-up monument on that block. It is a D'Agostino monument with space for six names. Currently there are two people on the stone "Papa" Sam Joseph D'Agostino (1943-2010) and Mildred Miller D'Agostino (1922-1990). Sam is also called husband on the stone and Mildred is called mother. I did take pictures of this monument. If you create memorial pages for them, let me know and I'll post the pictures

Colusa Cemetery
I fulfilled some of your requests from Colusa Cemetery. I did not find all of them, but in all honesty i was not able to thoroughly scour the entire cemetery. I just wanted to let you know of the additional photographs I took nearby and on the same family stone. I have added a Baby Duncan, Rosa Lynn Reed & L.J. Duncan (which does not seem to be the same person as the Logan Duncan you requested, as the dates are different). Thank you for allowing me to help! :)

Mt Carmel-Torronio
Hi Martha-
I loaded the picture for Raffaele and saw there was a page for Concetta so I loaded the pictures to her page too. I'm not sure if the Maria on the monument is a Guido or a Torronio. If you know and want to make a page for her, let me know and I'll put the pictures there too.

Green/Clay line
Martha, I just happened to see your comment on the Green line. That is mine. What can I answer for you? You may email me

I believe I have absolutely everything there is to gather on that line. All the way to MS.

The sister of my Thomas Green married the Clay.

Queen of Heaven-Naughton Marker
Hi Martha-
I posted the picture of the marker for Francis and Gloria Naughton. Next to them is another Naughton marker. It says:
Beloved Son, Thomas J 1957-1981
and also has:
Janice M Goodwin 1961-2010
I took a picture of this marker also. Let me know if you make pages for them.

RE: Glenn
You are very welcome. I am sorry the picture didn't turn out that clear, it was a cloudy and rainy day. Just driving by the old cemeteries on Memorial Day and noticed the gates open. I will try to get back there to take a better picture. Again you are very welcome!

Thank you for your SAC. I'll wait for further developments, before making changes. I'm not related, just at the cemetery for my relatives and added new names.
I also noted that somebody posted a headstone picture on Robert's memorial that appears to be unrelated.
Let me know the outcome, Larry

RE: Clark/Tuzzolino
Hi Martha,
You are very welcome. I photographed the cemetery last year and just haven't finished getting them all up yet. Glad I had it and could get it to you so quickly. I'll go back and double-check this week to see if the dates have been added to the stone. If they have, I'll take an additional picture for you.

Johnsons in Kearney
There were a bunch of Johnsons around the plots you requested (Ira) and I took photos of them all, and I will be entering them soon. Also, if you need the link for Kearney Cemetery interment records, it is:

Hope that will help.

RE: Salmon
You are most welcome. Please look at the Sammon's also. I wonder if some of them changed the spelling of their last name and that they are descendants of Thomas Salmon.
I will get them all up this morning.

Dorri's memorials
In the last 48 hours all 6,643 of Dorri's Sonoma County memorials have been transfered to volunteers who are looking for family or friends, to transfer. Check 'em out and start requesting. We are just getting started updating and linking. But Thank God in Heaven the log jam is over.

You sent me a SAC for Aaron OSBORNE's father. Could you check the father's # for me please? It didn't work. Thank you for the input and the sharp eye. I could use your help if you are up to it.

Your friend, Samantha

RE: Wortham's
Great. I had been stuck on Amelia's parentage for some time, there was a fairly large and well documented clan of Lawsons about twelve miles from White Mills in East View, but I couldn't ever place Amelia in it. They're unrelated I think, or at least not closely related. John Lawson is the only Lawson I can find in the White Mills area in the 1840 census, there's 8 people in the household in the age brackets below. I don't have certainty that this is our John, but I'm superimposing known individuals onto the age brackets. Thomas Francis married in 1837 so I suppose was elsewhere. Lucinda, if part of the family wasn't in the household in 1840 because she died in 1838.

Males 5 thru 9 1
Males 10 thru 14 1
Males 50 thru 59 1 John
Females 10 thru 14 1
Females 15 thru 19 2 Amelia and Sarah
Females 20 thru 29 1 Amanda
Females 40 thry 49 1 Ella

There's two brothers to Amelia's husband David Terry buried at the White Mills cemetery, that her brother Thomas Francis married Worthams I think is further evidence that this Lawson family was in the area in this time frame. Sarah married Johnson Franklin Duncan who I haven't been able to find the parentage for, but there were Duncans in the area in that time frame, some are in the cemetery. It isn't a large cemetery and its old, there's only been a couple of new burials there since 1975. New burials in old cemeteries like this with so many unmarked graves are really problematic.

So potentially unaccounted for members in this Lawson family are two boys one born 1831-1835 and one born 1826-1830, and a girl born 1826-1830.

RE: Wortham's
Unrelated to the Wortham's as far as I know but bump into the line on occasion. My gg-grandmother Amelia D Lawson Terry was Thomas Francis Lawson's sister. I just learned who her father was last week (John Lawson) and then saw a find-a-grave memorial for him. After finding that Thomas Francis Lawson married two of the Wortham sisters I remembered a very old headstone at White Mills that had Lawson on it, the only Lawson in the whole cemetery. I thought it may have been Lucretia so I went there to clean it up and see what I could read off it and the name was instead Lucinda Lawson who died in 1838 at age 15. I think the most likely explanation is that she is a child of John Lawson. I put in a memorial and went ahead and linked it to John, with an explanation of why I think she is part of that Lawson family.

What give it away that I found my gg-grandmother Amelia's people was the nephews named Fonrose, Benton or Logan.

I put a different picture on each of the memorial pages. It's such a beautiful place. It probably sounds kind of cryptic but I love just walking around there. It's really huge and there are a zillion different gardens and chapels.

Hi. I put Kenyan's on there too. You know, the Chapel of Chimes is absolutely beautiful. If you'd like me to take a few pics of the fountains or rooms, I'd love to. Just let me know.
