Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've always been into genealogy. My husband introduced me to geocaching a couple years ago (if you just said 'geo-what?' you should look it up at http://www.geocaching.com. it's pretty fun.) and it often leads us to cemeteries here and there. after finding this site i decided it was a good way to combine 2 things that i love. we could be out geocaching a couple hundred miles away home and come upon a cemetery and i will bring up the findagrave website on my phone to see if there are any requests there.

Others are free to use the pictures i post. Even though i took them, they do not belong to me, they belong to the family members of those who i take them of. Claiming ownership of a picture I take voluntarily of a headstone that does not physically belong to me just seems silly and selfish to me I guess. Feel free to drop me a line anyway if you use so I can be excited about being of help to others. I am currently working on cemeteries in the humboldt county area.

Some of the names in my family history i am working on are Heenan, Middleton, Bounds, Lamunion, Landers and Wideman.

Ulysses Wiltfong
Ulysses is my great grandfather. My mother would like me to update the information on his page and link him to her family. How do I do this, as I am fairly new to findagrave.com
Thanks!

Andrew J. Percy
Hello Celeste, could you please add in this bio from the History of Yuba and Sutter Counties for Andrew J. Percy #65355550:

A. J. PERCY. For many years, and by far the most active years of his
life, A. J. Percy was identified with farming interests in Sutter County,
where he is recalled as a man thoroughly conscientious in the discharge of
his obligations, very devoted to his home circle, and faithful to the friends
he made along the quiet and unassuming paths of his life. He was born at
Bath, Maine, March 14, 1829. At twenty years of age, he crossed the plains
to California and prospected for gold in the Yuba foothills. He also teamed
from Marysville to the mines ; and later he owned and conducted a livery
and feed stable in Marysville. Adjacent to Yuba City he purchased a fine
ranch of 126 acres, now known as the Percy tract, where the new Union
High School is located, and also 440 acres to the southwest, where he raised
the grain which he used in his business.

On August 14, 1859, in San Francisco, Mr. Percy was married to Miss
Rachel Vandelia Farrin, also born in Bath, Maine, who came to California
via Panama in 1859. Mr. Percy passed away on April 19, 1880, survived
by his wife and three children: Thomas, who is now deceased; Laura Belle,
the wife of George W. Christopherson ; and Acldie A^andelia, also now de-
ceased. Mrs. Percy passed away on the home ranch on December 25, 1908.

Thank you so much. Kayra Dillon

RE: Re: Watson (Sutter Cemetery)
Thank you - it would be very convenient to manage the Watson memorials as I've been working on the family and trying to get them all tied together. My Find A Grave # 46638792. ~Nancy
