|Bio and Links|
I am now a ninety one year old mother, grandmother, gr-grandmother, and recently a gr-gr-grandmother. On my 80th birthday my grandkids were ask to share what they remember about grandma. Because I realized they didn't know much about their ancestors, I decided to write down what I remembered of the stories that were told to me as I was growing up. That lead me to contact the Sequoia Genealogical Society. |
Volunteers taught me how to find more than 100 years of local family history from the Tulare City Libraries Genealogical Collection.
One volunteer, a retired school teacher taught me, fourth grade style, how to search the Internet on the computer. That year my daughter and grand children gave me a computer for Christmas, and I was off and flying and now I added Find a Grave to my activities.
Seen on another contributor's profile. I couldn't agree more.
We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.
When you visit one of my memorials please leave a flower. I appreciate it when you say what relation, if any, to a person.
Because of my age I would like to transfer some of my memorials. For many of them, I am not a direct descendant, and I prefer to transfer to direct descendants. There are a few occasions where I will make an exception. I will not make any transfers unless you leave a flower and a note.

Since I manage both, I will look into it.

Thank you so much!

Stopped in yesterday expecting a quick photo for you of Rita & Robert Graham, was I wrong. This cemetery is huge and even with locations I still need a map to locate exact locations.
Office says they will provide one some time next week.
Links made to the memorials for his parents. Thanks so much for sending the information. I do appreciate it!
Just wanted to wish you a Happy Mother's Day! Thank you for all you do in Find-A-Grave and in keeping our loved ones remembered. :) <3.
It seems, my friend, that you have as much family in the Bayard Cemetery as I do. I hope my sister and I are helping you in your search. We found John, Sara, Allen, William, James, Raymond, Eva, Kyle, and Joseph Chambers. Good luck!
|Mike Foos||Henry Aye's tombstone|
Your photograph of the tombstone of Henry Aye (1794-1870) [Find A Grave Memorial# 46219711] is listed on Find A Grave. The profile lists the burial cemetery as unknown. Do you recall where you took the photograph? I would like to know in what cemetery that tombstone is found. Thank you very much.
|Christy Child||Photo Request again|
I am slowly working through my nearly 600 photos of the Bayard Cemetery and I noticed you requested Agnes McCracken. Other McCrackens of that name we found were Baby, Robert, May, James, William, Donna, Bridget, Edward, Frank, Charles, and Elsie. Good luck in your search!
Greenwood Cemetery records show no marker, but a broken base is next to the marker of infant Johnny Limpus.
