|Bio and Links|
I have always interested in where my family came from. Like all families, we have stories of famous/infamous relatives. Have been working for over 20 years trying to find the truth behind the stories. So far, I have been unable to prove any of the stories, but you never can tell! Only returning to the US for family visits limits the amount of time I have to explore physical records. With the advent of information on the internet, I have found great quanities of useful information. Find A Grave is a marvelous asset.|

|George Brown||Thank You!|
Today I was looking at the memorial of my cousin, Leonard Walker Shelby and from what I read he is also your cousin. I see your name and remarks you posted on many of my memorial and I just want to thank you for doing this.
|Dottie Gingerelli||Eddie Benevich|
I apologize for the delay, but the mausoleum that contains Mr. Benevich's crypt has been closed due to earthquake retrofitting! I checked there again today and the Cemetery Operations Superintendent said that it should be finished in about two more weeks.
The request you put in is going to expire, but don't worry; I'm going to reject this request and when the mausoleum re-opens, I'll simply upload the picture to the memorial independently. You don't even have to re-submit a request, because it might be a little longer than the two weeks that Find A Grave holds a request. My parents are at this cemetery, so it's not out of my way at all and I certainly don't mind doing it. So you're going to get a rejection, just ignore it and trust me that it will get done. Dottie
|BILL ADAMS||Daniel Long|
I saw your name on Daniel Long's memorial page. I am also related. I am related from his son James H. Long. My great grandmother was Columbia Long of Lauderdale County Alabama. Her father was Daniel W. Long, also of Lauderdale County.
|Grayson ||Col. John Van Valkenburg|
Thanks for remembering Colonel John Van Valkenburg of the 20th Indiana Volunteers, especially on Memorial Day.He is buried at Maple Hill Cemetery in Huntsville, AL.
I know what you mean about trying to get "the rest of the story." I've found some great ones. Can you imagine what it was like to come to a Southern town after the War and try to help it rebuild? (He was a hardware merchant.) Sons and daughters married Southern spouses and much of the family history just wasn't talked about. So I go digging! I love it!

|Bill Bedell||Martha Wade|
I hope you don't mind, but I had this pic of Martha Wade's headstone on my computer that I took 01/09/13, so I uploaded it. I had updated James's Headstone but I don't know why I didn't upload Martha's. Brain leak. Anyway, I didn't claim your request, so I sent a public message to 'danni' the one who claimed it, to let her know. The weather is bad here so I thought it would take a while for her to get a good pic. I can delete mine if you want, just let me know. thanks, ~Bill
Thank you for catching that error, I have corrected it.

OK, I did as ordered. :-]
I will transfer her to you if you like. You are a whole lot closer related to her than I am. I am sure I am related to her somehow, back there through Adam and Eve somewhere along the line.
|Mary Brown||Jourden Jeremiah Findley|
As I was working on my family tree just now, I noticed for the first time that you've left 3 different memorials on the page for Corp Jourden Jeremiah Findley. Are you perhaps related to him, or know someone who is? I ask because he is either a 2g or 3g uncle to me, (I forget which off the top of my head), being the brother of my 2g grandfather.
I've run into a bit of a brick wall with Jourden - I can find names on his wife & 4 children, but nothing else. Not even where the others are buried. Any info you have and are willing to share would be most appreciated.
