Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Kimberly and I began my journey here at "Find a Grave" in August 2009 when I stumbled upon this website by accident. My father had just past away 2 years ago and I had not been able to go and see his grave or headstone. I was totally surprised that someone had taken a picture of his headstone and put it on this site. My husband and I moved from California to Texas. His mother is buried in Central California and I was able meet another fantastic volunteer who went and took photos of my husband's mother's headstone and other famiily members so that he is able to have a memorial for them since we are so far away. I know there are so many others out there who do not know about this site and I want to help share this site with others. I feel it is important to keep our loved ones memories alive.

I have enjoyed linking family together on here and this site has been advantageous in my genealogy endeavors. The following are surnames of the family I am researching: Shields; Hannah; McElwain; Detherow; Case; Shook; Davis; Pilkington; Harmon; and most of Webster Co., Missouri (to list a few). If you are related, please let me know. I have done a lot of research on most of these families and would love to share anything I have.

**** I would be happy to transfer memorials to those related and even non-related, within reason; I just ask that those memorials I transfer be cared for as I have cared for them ****

All my blessings

Christina Patricia Drake
Hi Kimberly,

I contacted Assumption Catholic Cemetery in Simi Valley today to get the location of Christina Patricia Drake before I went over to take the picture. The receptionist at the cemetery informed me that the public cannot take pictures of the grave stones, however, if you call them they will be happy to take the picture and email it to you. Sorry, Melody

RE: Christina Potvin
You're very welcome, happy to help.

Small world...I noticed the other name on the headstone, Patricia Echeverri, and realized I attended high school with her for the short time she was there. I didn't know her well but remember the sad news of her passing our Freshman year. Not sure if there's any relation between her and Christina.

Happy 4th to you as well.

Hi Kimberly

The memorial #111209301 is the one I believe should belong to the Terry Cemetery in Faulkner Co AR.

Milly Dickens Terry burial

I think this Milly Terry is the same person as Milly Terry listed in Terry Cemetery in Faulkner Co AR and should be removed from the Terry Cemetery in Washington Co AR.

Thank you

RE: Detherow connection
Kimberly, this is so interesting. My maiden name is DeLacretaz. James Roy, her son, was my grandfather. We know nothing about her or our great grandfather, Charles. Only that he came from Switzerland on a ship that came to New Orleans and he made his way to Missouri. Any information you have on them and their descendants would be amazing. I have one photo of them. They looked like farmers..he had on overalls and she in a dress with an apron. I will try to find it and send it to you if you want. I am hungry for anything you know about her/them. Does her family go back as far as the American Revolutuion?

Detherow connection
Kimberly, I'm wondering about your relationship to Margaret Elizabeth Detherow DeLacretaz. She was my paternal great grandmother. Of course, I never knew her nor my great grandfather, Charles DeLacretaz. I'm hoping you have some information besides birth, death, etc.
