|Bio and Links|
|I was born in Los Angeles but lived most of my life in San Francisco. I will always remember those who influenced my life... but especially my dear friends who live on in my spirit. I want to make sure they will never be forgotten or their lives taken for granted.|
I am a proud direct descendant of William Sprague who came to America in 1629 aboard the ship "Lyon's Whelp". Three of my ancestors were Revolutionary War heroes and one was a close friend of President George Washington. Another direct ancestor fought in the Civil War and was wounded in the battle at Stone's River in Tennessee. Further back I am directly descended from King Louis VII, Henry I, II and III and Saint Margaret among others. These people led extraordinary lives and inspire me.
I am honored to have written the biographies for the following famous people here on findagrave... Tyrone Power, Irene Dunne, Janet Gaynor, Erich Von Stroheim, Helmut Newton, David Brian, Charles Ives, Ernest Tidyman, Eugen Sandow, Martinus Sieveking, Samuel H. Kress, Bronislaw Kaper, Albert Frey, Fontella Bass, Clifton A. Sprague, Governor of Virginia Frederick W. M. Holliday.

An absolutely lovely tribute to someone who must have been so dear to you - I have no doubt she would have been so pleased by your words!

Thank you for such a lovely bio for Casey. He was my hero when we were in fourth grade. he was a dedicated pen pal to me as well. We lost touch when I married and I have been searching for him. My heart sunk when I found him here. Thank you again for being so thoughtful and the kind words for the boy who taught me to swim.
It's great to meet another ancestor of Grandfather William Sprague. Have a great day!

Thank you for letting me know that you added Mr. Raymond's photo to his memorial page. While I wasn't the contributor who added him to findagrave, I did write the bio that his currently on his memorial and I agree with you that he should be listed as famous. Unfortunately when I submited the bio to administration, they decided that he was not.
I'm glad that you enjoyed the virtual cemetery I put together of San Francisco mayors. With all the confusion surrounding the history of cemeteries in the city, it has been one of my main goals to locate the final resting places of all of the city's mayors. I still have a few that are unaccounted for but with any luck, I hope that I can evenutally track them all down.

"feeling silly in Arizona" ... Hi Christian, thanks for the info on your beautiful photo. My mother and son are at this Cemetery. You are right, it is a beautiful spot. Much of my growing up years were spent within walking distance of Pacific Crest. As nutty as it sounds; mother, sister and I walked there and had a little picnic on the lawn. We were small children but still the memory makes us laugh. Thank you for being so gracious about my error. Loved reading your bio...what an interesting person and life. Many blessings upon you, Marsha

Wow. Vesta has taken a love of the color pink to a whole higher level, probably wearing pink in Heaven. Thanks for your letter. Again, your Memorial is quite memorable.

Thank you for remembering Alice Nunn on her memorial page. It is sad that there is not more information listed on the Internet about this iconic character actress. I have created a Facebook page in her honor with lots of photos and other facts: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Alice-Nunn/264857670207325?sk=wall#!/pages/Alice-Nunn/264857670207325?sk=wall
