Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an enthusiastic genealogist and got into graving when I started looking for my ancestors. I have since branched out and started doing graves of non-family members. Graving has turned into my second obsession. I am an active volunteer with the cemeteries here in El Dorado County and love every minute of it. I am the FAG County Keeper for El Dorado County, CA and am really enjoying it. Unfortunately, many of our graveyards throughout this country are suffering from disuse and neglect. I've found that Find-a-Grave is a great way to help preserve graves and cemeteries and also provides a way for people to visit their ancestors or friends even though they can't visit the graves in person.

I recently married a wonderful lady named Sherida, who, it turns out, is also great in cemeteries. We now have a partnership in Now isn't that a wonderful match?

ASH family stones - Fort Bidwell Cemetery
I cannot thank you enough for your extra time and efforts in locating, fully & clearly photographing not just the one I requested, but the other ASH family members in the plot (his 2nd wife, son & daughter-in-law) and creating their memorials as well. Very well done. Thank you.

Photo Thank You
I thank you for taking the time to not only take the photo of George Washington Reynolds (Renolds)and his wife Amelia's grave, but to post it as you did.

It is because of people like you that Find A Grave is so very successful. The photo will be placed in a family history notebook and shared for generations!

Thank you

Memorial #27257366 - Victor Richardson, Web: California, Find A Grave Index, 1775-2011 (Provo, UT, USA, Operations, Inc., 2012),, Record for Victor S. Richardson.

Hi Paul,
The text within the memorial incorrectly cites death year as 1940 in lieu of the 1945 inscribed within the headstone; it appears the death year of his wife Elizabeth (1940) had been inter-mixed. They share a common headstone.

Thank you so much for getting the photo for me. She was a great lady she and her family loved genealogy and much of their research was obtained the old fashion way...pen and paper and lots of miles. Have a wonderful week and thanks for helping family find family.
