Bio and Links
Bio Photo Howdy neighbors, my name is "J.R." Richardson. In my younger years I was always too busy having fun and working to pay attention to, or ask questions about my ancestors. Now in my older years, after it's too late to ask those questions, I find myself desperately wanting to know more about my past ancestry. And also to pass on this information to my Kids,GrandKids and Great GrandKids,so they will not have to wonder who their ancestors were,how they lived and where they came from .

I live in the "Entertainment Capitol" : LAS VEGAS,Nevada. I enjoy Genealogy which is what led me to this site. Actually,one day while doing some research on my Uncle Marvin (My Father's Oldest Brother)on an ancestry site,there was his name,as a link,at the bottom of the page,so I clicked on it,it went to Google and his name was there as one of the listings that said,"Find A" with it,so I clicked on it and the rest is history. I think this is a great place to honor and remember our loved ones. And to share geneaology information.

I wish to express my gratitude to all those very kind and genealogy conscious people who add the links and make the changes I have suggested.

Maiden names for the women is especially important and will aid all future researchers. Family names for the women often get lost when they marry. Listing 1st and 2nd husbands also is very important.

My goal is to link all family members together: parents, spouses and children. This will enable any and all researchers to find family members and complete their research for all generations. Future generations will then be able to connect with their past.


Due to many conflicts of interest from family members, we will no longer accept information from a F.A.G. VISITOR.


You're free to download my photos for personal use, but if you publish them in a book or use them online, please credit me ("J.R." Richardson,Find A Grave #47748796) and let me know so I can maintain braggin' rights. Thanks

FYI - I do have headstone photos for most of my listings. I am behind in adding them to the memorials. If I do not have a photo posted yet or a correction needs to be made, please go to the Memorial page and Click on the Edit Button at the top of the page and then click on the Suggest A Correction leave me a message. Thanks,J R


A funny thing happened on the way to the Forum. I stopped at a cemetery and my life has never been the same. Someone, long ago, predicted my fascination about burial plots. It seems on the day I was born, my parents looked gravely at me. The doctor picked me up by the heels and slapped my mother and made her cry. Life started out not quite right! Thus I went to cemeteries and became a grave whisperer.


I volunteer for Find A Grave to honor our past and to breathe life into the memories of our ancestors. I volunteer to ensure that your relatives and mine are not forgotten.


"Find A Grave's mission is to transcribe cemetery information from around the world and to present this information as a virtual cemetery experience.
Memorial contributions to Find A Grave should at the least fulfill the mission *** registration of the final resting place. If a memorial contribution corresponds with only the main mission, the memorial has fulfilled its part of Find A Grave's mission.
Find A Grave memorials may contain rich content including photographs, biographies, and date information. Members can leave remembrances via ‘virtual flowers' on the memorials they visit, completing the virtual cemetery experience.
Find A Grave is a resource for anyone interested in finding the final resting place of family, friends, and ‘famous' individuals"


Transfer requests must follow Find A Grave guidelines. Be specific on your relationship. I will make corrections, additions, & family links when asked. Use the Edit tab, then the Suggest A Correction (SAC) option & include your email address.
I submit obituaries (without living relatives as per "Find A Grave Guidelines",unless given special permission to do so,by person who wrote obituary)to this site as a hobby and enjoy reading the many obituaries. I do not intentionally duplicate anyones entry, so if that does happen, please let me know and I will delete it, only if theirs has a lower memorial # than mine. If I have added any, and someone wants me to transfer to them, I will be more than happy to do so (as per Find A Grave Guidelines),as long as that person is not related to me. It's not about who has the most entries(Memorials).

I do respect all contributors of FAG and expect the same from them.

Use of my photos for non-profit purposes only. is NOT non-profit!!

If I have created a Memorial Page and you know of info on it that needs to be corrected please use the "Edit" button and the Suggest A Correction link to supply the info to me. Please,I have a full time job so bear with me I will take care of the needed corrections ASAP. Thank You.

In everyone there is the urge to discover the events of their family's history. The really fortunate ones get their wish.

"And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count; it's the Life in your years." ~~~Abraham Lincoln

RE: Matilda Record @ Palms Desert Memorial
Thanks for all your effort. I was told she was buried there but you know how reliable family information can be sometimes. I really appreciate you going above and beyond.

Thanks for looking for my aunt. I guess I shouldn't have assumed she was buried with her husband. I have taken the cemetery off her memorial.

Thank you so much for getting the picture of my great uncle's grave. It took me several years to track down his burial place and getting the photo of his grave was the final achievement.

RE: John Russell Cottam #105846699
Thank you, very much. I don't know why they couldn't find him. The first time I called it took quite awhile, but they eventually found him. The second time, I must have reached the woman that you spoke to. She was very helpful and sweet.

I am sorry they told you he was not at the Palm Desert Memorial. I just got off the phone with them, again, to verify his grave site. I had submitted that information to the person who manages his memorial, but they have not updated it yet.

He is located in the downtown location on Main, in Sec. 2007, Garden of Peace in the Eternity Garden, Lot 5A.

Thank you for your understanding, and for the work you do. It is appreciated.

Thank you for letting me know that the cemetery office has no records for them. I have contacted the person who added these memorials for further information. Do you think it's possible that they were cremated at the cemetery and their ashes were returned to the family?
