Bio and Links
Bio Photo In February 2008, my son invited me to join his Geni Family Tree which sparked my interest in the family histories for myself and that of my wife. Since then, I have researched birth, death, and census records (Winning, Hudelson, Wilbur, Howell, Jolly, Dye, Oates, Hibbert, Poage, Clark and Krigbaum families) which have given me a wealth of information. I have walked cemeteries in and around California and Nevada as well as visited local museums which gave me some interesting family history. In May 2009, my wife and I took a road trip through several midwest states to walk some cemeteries as well as visit some family. While I am new to being a genealogy sleuth, it has become quite a hobby and I find it's like putting pieces of a puzzle together and oh so fun!

What an amazing photo you have posted on her memorial. Do you have a background story by any chance? Thanks for posting the photo.

RE: The Borlands
You're welcomed, John. Was surprised that Hazel Borland did not already have a memorial so was glad to be able to visit the family and get them connected.

RE: Wilbur Photo
John: You are right - there was only one grave in section 15 lot 204 for Merrit Wilbur. Arkie Wilbur was listed as section 15 lot 204 also but there was an empty space. I'm very sorry, I thought I sent you a message about that but guess my mind is slipping. Taking pictures at Cape County Memorial Park Cemetery is very challenging. Do you run into places like that? The secretary at the office out there has told me twice she cannot look up burials for anyone except a relative. One person told me she offered to do it for $5.00 a person. And there is no way I'm going to pay that as a volunteer. So there were over 150 requests that had "backed up" over the winter and I made a trip over to Jackson to the Historical Archives and spent a couple of hours writing down locations. But once you find the section, it is still a matter of walking row by row to find the grave. Does it sound like I'm complaining? I don't mean to do that, I love helping people out and others have blessed me with pictures. Ruth

Photo Fulfillment
Thanks for posting the headstone photo for Richard Adams in the Fairview Cemetery. Was in hopes that his date of death had been added by this time. He died in 2011.

Thanks again,

RE: Ward Gaasch
Confusion on my part, apparently--the accident happened at some point late Friday night into early Saturday morning. He wasn't found for a short time, and some accounts have him dying Saturday morning. Most say Friday night, though, and I'll change that.

Thank you!

Posted a grave marker of Will. Will reshoot it later when the sun is in a better position.
