Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi Everybody!!

My name is Lanette Estill-Cooper & I live in central California. Most of my contributions have been in Howard County, Missouri & San Luis Obispo County, California. Death & birth certificates often have misspellings and incorrect information. If you are related to these interees & have any corrections I will gladly change them. Please don't get mad at me like the crazy lady from Hawaii.

If you have information that you would like added I'll be happy to do that also. I am more than happy to make transfers for friends & family. You are welcome to use any of the pictures that I have posted on findagrave.

Half of my entries are in the Santa Margarita Cemetery in Santa Margarita, California. I was helping the local historical society with this cemetery but I am not related to anyone in it. There are about 100 names I haven't listed yet. There are about 100 unmarked graves as well, for which I have some names. If you don't see your relative on findagrave, e-mail me & I will look on the roster I have. If you have any info on these people or any interesting stories about them, the Santa Margarita Historical Society would love to hear from you. They have their own website.

I am always interested in exchanging information with distant cousins. All my people come from Howard County, Missouri or Chaffee County, Colorado. Some of the surnames in my family are Estill, Fisher, Bertschy, O'Malley, Crowley, Lynch, Cowan and Loughney.

I am trying to find proof of Martha's parents. Can you please share where you got the name Sara Elizabeth Scott for her mother? i found Wm Wills listed on her death certificate as father but mother was listed unknown.
Thanks So much,

Owen E O'Malley #30624892
Hi Lanette,

I see you are a relative of Owen. May I get information on him that you would not mind sharing with others?

I ask because I have been documenting all of the folks who are buried in Block 12 at Riverside Cemetery for over 6 years and hope to learn much about them.

My goal is to bring a little life to these folks, to tell their story. Would you mind sharing? May I also post the picture you have of him into my documents and then later with the information you provide?

It is so nice to see what you have already posted on Owen, his family and all. Super.

Feel free to visit my web-site and the story of the month portion too. You'll see a lot here.

Also, I have a William O'Malley interred: 23 Apr 1934 and two Baby O'Malleys interred: 5 Jul 1930 & 4 Jun 1931....any relation?

Thank you in advance.

Vickie Smejkal

P.S. Owen is in Block 12, Lot 35, Section 278. There is no headstone (most of the folks in this Block do not have stones).

A friend told me about this change a couple days after this was deployed. I have sent an edit/s to you so I thought maybe you didn't know about it. You might want to pass it on to your friends. thanks!!! ~Peggy

New "Automated" system for "Suggest a Correction/Submit an Edit"

******Please Note******
New System for Memorial Edits deployed by FindAGrave on 12/5/2013

Go to your Contributor/Profile page.
Look in the upper right corner. You should now see a tab called "Edits" - check there to see if any have been submitted to you. Then just review and accept.

Way easier for doing updates to names/dates/places/plot numbers/links. If you don't approve within 21 days it will automatically accept it.

You still will get e-mails to add info to bio section.

Any info that you have you can email to me and I will add it to her memorial. This is my relative and I don't care to transfer it to a non-relative.

Ruby Cemetery Arizona

I saw your photos of Ruby Cemetery. Do you know what happened to it? It looks like its been buried in a mine tailing in the one photo. I haven't been out there in years so that is why I am asking.

Thank you

RE: Oops!!
That's the year I have, and since her family was living in San Jose, SLO County from 1880 to 1900, I'm guessing that's where the wedding took place. At the family ranch. Unless they went into the big city of Santa Margarita to the Catholic church.

RE: Sarah Cravens Kivett Carson
I just looked again and some people have his death in 1880 (he was still alive in the 1880 census). I looked in the Missouri death records online and found nothing for him. He must be somewhere in Howard County, as he was there throughout his latter years. Sorry.

RE: Claudina Roza
Claudina Doris "Dina" (Villa) Roza's parents are Lazaro Torres Villa #52917505 and Amelia Bridget (Garcia) Villa #52984759. I sent this edit through the Find A Grave auto-edit process this morning and it should appear some day. Maybe I'll poke around and see if I can find the parents of Ronald "Boss" Villa, Amelia's grandson.
I've finally found where most of my Villa "Cousins" grew up and are buried and am filling in the family tree for Stanley Villa, my 2nd cousin.
