|Bio and Links|
Born and raised in Fresno, California of Alabama born parents, got into Genealogy in 1997 when I could not figure out what else to do with this computer on-line. I have built up quite a lot of pictures of old shots of Clay County and Jefferson County Alabama. I have visited most of the cemeteries of my ancestors and my Wife's ancestors in Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas. A Self-proclaimed Historian with a California Historical society (E Clampus Vitus), I am visiting places of historical interest and with my trusty Dimage , Vivitar and Olympus digital cameras have been taking pictures of headstones at whatever cemeteries we may visit and Historical Monuments in our travels in California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Washington. In Fresno, I have added the 1919 biographies of early Fresno residents from the Paul E Vandor book titled "The History of Fresno County" to as many listings as I could. If you have something you would like to have added to a Bio, just drop me a line.|
I follow FindaGrave rules and usually transfer close relatives within 30 days. You can complain to the FindaGrave administrators if you want, but you will likely find they too have little patience for impatient people.

|SandraMunyon||RE: Maye Lund Steward|
WOW !! Thank you so much for all the information on Maye Lund Steward. Now I'm wondering who my Mother wrote to in Florida while I was growing up. haha There Maye was right in Central California. They were married in Prosser, WA 1917 and my great uncle was 23 yrs old. If the headstone is correct she was 22. If she had lied about her age she would have been 32 when they married. I ask my sister but she only remembers hearing about her and we know our Mother liked her. The headstone was purchased by someone or maybe she preplanned and paid. My husband thinks thats the Eastern Star emblem on it. My great uncle Cec was a mason all his life. Maybe I can find a copy of her death cert. Its always interesting who the informant was. Again thank for all the info you sent me.
|SandraMunyon||Maye Lund Steward|
Did you know this woman or did you create this memorial just walking the cemetery? The reason I ask is my great uncle Cecil H Steward was married to a Maye Lund when I was growing up, they divorced and she moved to Florida. She and my Mother use to write letters. I don't know when the letters stopped but I'm wondering if this could be her. Thanks for your help.

#43710443 Hi. This is a duplicate of an entry I made in 2006.
|Diane Reich||Jacob & Lena Brownstone|
Hi, I just noticed your entries for the Brownstones. Please delete they are dupes of ones I made earlier. You have them listed in Hills of Eternity when actually they are in Home of Peace, which is seperated by a small road. Thanks. The death cert for Lena is on ancestry & also lists Home of Peace. Thanks! Diane

I found the flower you placed at the memorial for Frederick Levings - E Clampus Vitus. Thank you. Fred was my cousin & I'm hoping that you can suggest ways I can learn more about him as I hope to discover what happened to his mother, Julia. Fred's father owned a sizeable fleet of sailing ships which he ran from Portland ME to the West Indies to England & back to Portland - from about 1810 until he came to be interested in the Prescott mines in Arizona. It was a very odd family.
