Bio and Links
Bio Photo Additional information and corrections are very welcome. Feel free to use my headstone photos too. Photo credit would be nice.

If anyone wants to take over the management of their family's memorial from me, just ask. As long as you're related to the deceased, that's good enough for me. Please remember to include your Find A Grave ID number when requesting the transfer.

Please do not post complete obituaries on my memorials (too many problems with people's privacy and copyright infringement). Paraphrasing the main points from an obituary is great, and I'm happy to add that if you forward it to me using the Edit tab.

And finally...

From the Amador Ledger (Calif.), November 2, 1900:
THE TRANSLATION. On the gate of the cemetery in Rio de Janeiro is a notice in Spanish, French, and English that no dogs are admitted unless led by the owner. This is how the announcement is made in English: "Noble mesdames and gentlemen who may desire a dog to follow in this tombsyard will be permission unless him drawn by a cable round him throttle."

Change Request for Memorial 130609830
Kathie: This memorial for Patricia Ann Ebersole Brown is my husband's (Denzil Lloyd Brown) first wife, the mother of 7 of his children. He is not internet savvy and requests I do all internet changes and emails for him. Please transfer this memorial to me (#47377777 - Ginny Brown) so we can add photos and correct name, birth and death info. Or you can do it: There is no "e" on Ann. Birth was Rohnerville, Humboldt, California, USA. Death was Carmichael, Sacramento, California, USA. Thanks for all your dedication to this important work. We work mostly in, but use Find A Grave extensively to help link families. I am also an indexer at and love the work!

RE: Charlotte Holmes #144688525
Kathie, I'm so sorry, I did not put two and two together, very good to hear from you. Regarding your memorial, I would not delete it. Sometimes there are instances where a person is named in two locations, one is perhaps a memorial. I will reach out to Roosevelt in next few days to try and find out what they know about her having a marker there. I will leave mine up and have placed a hyperlink in mine to lead anyone seeking her to yours. Have a wonderful day. Jerry

Thanks for the heads up about the two memorials. I deleted the one that had no burial location. The memorial at East Lawn, Sacramento remains.
