Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been into family history since the 1960's. I'm grateful that I started when I did as so much family information gets lost because we don't ask questions early on.

Find a Grave is a great site and powerful resource. Thanks to all who work so hard to fulfill its primary purpose - documenting known burials.

I'm paying particular attention to Salem Memorial Park in Colma, CA. I appreciate being able to help fill in for all that information lost in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire.

The site has also provided a couple of wonderful finds regarding my family history --- primarily Nancy Brenneman Gast Rhodes. Until I found her on Find a Grave, our family thought she died in 1852. I'm hoping to be able to provide similar breakthroughs for others.

I'm happy to make changes and links for well documented information. Please send transcriptions of obits and news articles (with name and date of the publication) rather than uploading images of them to the photo area (this is no longer permitted by Find-a-Grave). Also, please note that "cut and paste" or transcribed census reports are NOT a bio. Data will be put into proper fields. If you want more, please write a few narrative sentences.

Permission is granted for personal use of any of the photos I have added, giving me credit for having provided them. Permission is denied for use of my photos for posting on other websites (for Ancestry.com - please use their linking option instead). Permission is denied for for sale of my photos or for any other use for monetary profit.

I am a g-grandson of Rudolph Franke by way of Lillian (my maternal grandmother). Sophie was Wilhelm's second wife and not the biological mother of the two daughters although she was an excellent and loving MOTHER to them. I am looking for any information that I can find on Wilhelm's first wife. I have found very little about her but I believe that her first name was Christina or some spelling derivation of that. I would appreciate any help you might be with information. My e-mail is bconyers@glasgow-ky.com. Thanks so much.

Bert Vanwinkle
Relative to this memorial...

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=113926760&justMadeEdit=1

Larry, This is Albert 'Bert' Vanwinkle and the son of Jason Windgate Vanwinkle. He was actually born in Feb 1880, according to this record.

His mother was from Mexico and I'm going to guess this 'union' did not last long (based upon other data).

Re; Joseph and Vivian Zeiph
THANK YOU for adding Vivian to Find A Grave (2016)!
She was daughter of pioneer settlers of Dayton, Lyon County, Nevada, and I'm so pleased to be able to add her final resting place to our Historical Society files.

Thanks for the prompt edits, Larry. It's hard sometimes, to know if the edit has merit. I wish the new edit system had a space on the edit form for "source". I got Fred's name from his mom's obituary. The fact that he was on the same tombstone as his dad, her first husband, made it undeniable! Thanks for your work.
