Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in 1938 in Oakland CA and in October 2014, moved to Pleasanton CA, which is 25 miles SE. About twelve years ago it got into genealogy and since them my life has not been the same. Just ask Chloe, my wife. Both of my parents came from Colorado. My father was born and raised in the NE corner of Colorado and moved to Arvada, which in is near Denver, in 1920. He and my mother who was born in Arvada, married in 1926 and came to California. To date my greatest feeling of accomplishment is finding one of my 2nd GG mother's memorial page and having a photo placed on it. This occurred in Feb 2010 and with great thanks to Fern Bray. As of the May 7, 2015, I have created 30 memorials all for my wife's or my family members and manage 95 memorials, most of them are direct relatives of my wife or me. Which means that I have had 65 memorials transferred to me by other creators, who I thank. Most come because I have sponsored my ancestor's memorial. THANKS TO ALL OF THE PEOPLE AT FIND OF GRAVE THAT HAVE ASSISTED ME IN THE NEVER ENDING SEARCH. TO EACH ONE, A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU.

Richard Kimball
Mr. Shackley,
Thank you very much for sponsoring the Richard Kimball Memorial Page, FAGM# 131201360. I am also a descendent of Richard Kimball. To find me you would have to start at Richard and go down through his son Thomas, then Joseph, then Charles, then Charles Jr., then another Charles, then Charles William, his son Jeremiah, his son Jeremiah "Dink" and finally Perry. Thanks again and thanks for all of your work with Find-A-Grave.

RE: Ann Greenaway Pearce
Thank you again. Interesting about the "window tax". Yes, to be 104 by itself would be interesting to experience, hopefully in reasonably good health, but to live back in the 1600's and to be that old is incredible.

Thank you again for your work on Find A Grave.

Mary (Lewis) Stone 30112904
Hi-I have to apologize about this listing-I made it in error, because there is an earlier listing, for Mary (Lewis) Stone, and when I put her in, I put her in as Mary Penfield, which is probably the reason you were able to find her. I would have normally just deleted my duplicate, but I see that you are now sponsoring her memorial. I would like to just transfer her to you, but like I said, she is a duplicate. I don't know how easy it would be for you to un-sponsor her, but if it is easy to do, then I'd like to delete her. Do you just want me to transfer her to you? Thanks, irma

I noticed on our Grandfather's gravesite, you said he was your fifth ggrandfather, he was my sixth ggrandfather so I think that makes us some sort of cousins? Would love to hear from you. My email is
