Thanks to a lady named Annette and the photo she placed on Find A Grave, I was able to break through a brick wall in my quest to document the family tree. Since then I've placed a number of requests. I am very grateful to the folks who took pictures and filled those requests.

I pretty much limit myself to taking pictures in the San Francisco National Cemetery in the Presidio of San Francisco. It's an absolutely beautiful place with lawn that would make any gardener envious and with breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay.

If there is anything I put up on this web site that needs correcting or that you would like me to remove, please let me know. If you would like me to transfer a memorial to you, please let me know. Be sure you are logged in and then use the edit tab. With the exception of my own family's memorials, I would be happy to make the transfer.

Through Find A Grave I've been privileged to come in contact with some really wonderful people. This is a team effort and it is amazing how this database has grown. It is fun, even though it can occasionally be awkward when I tell someone I take tombstone pictures. :-) There have been many kind e-mails and public messages. While it is always nice to get a pat on the back, that is not why I do it. I do it in the hopes that what I do might help others as much as the work of others has helped me. Over the years there have been a few disagreements, very few. With an exchange of private e-mails disagreements usually get worked out. That is part of the teamwork. But I find public messages that are not polite to be uncalled for. I was raised to believe that you praise in public and criticize in private.

RE: George Washington Whittier # 21138333
You did the work to enter him in the first place, for which many thanks! I am related to him, yes, but I don't feel like I have to have my name on there unless it is of benefit to you to move him to me. I'm down in Alabama, and my Whittier/Whitcher relatives are all over New England. I am just so happy to find them on Findagrave!

RE: John Francis Byrne, Jr, # 108848742
Thank you for the transfer! I really appreciate all the efforts of so many contributors to find a grave. I try to do my part by hunting down relatives and data to enhance memorial pages and link families together to provide a path for distant relatives to find each other and connect.

Thank *you* for your efforts at San Francisco National Cemetery. I hope that soon I will be able to bring my sons there to pay their respects to the veterans and specifically their great grandfather.

If you wish to transfer, that would be ok. John Byrne is my children's material great grandfather. I've tracked down John's parents and grandparents in Butte, Montana to share with my kids.

Francis Small
In Mount Auburn Cem, Cambridge, MA. The Francis W and Francis Small were from 2 separate listings. They probably are the same person but I'm going to leave them both in case someone has knowledge of the family and can provide more info on them. The same goes for Charles T and Charles F Small in the same cem. Thanks for bringing it up..

Murray McCaslin
Thank you for giving the management of his memorial to me. If you 'd like to take a look at what I've added, go to Early Murray McCaslin, Find A Grave Memorial# 106050571. Yes, that is what he was named as a child. When he got old enough to choose what he was called the Early disappeared.
