RE: Curtis Vance Moss
Hello, Sharon,

I found a little bit of news outlining what happened to him. In the middle of all this history drama we had quite a shaking. (my first good 'ol Southern California earthquake)

I may take a trip this weekend to Merced County and visit Curt's grave.

I am deeply saddened - I truly believed we would meet again someday and play a little music and celebrate surviving our youth!(I was a wild one back in the day too)

Guess that gives me more time to practice Follow Your Rainbows, Mountain Man and all the other songs we used to play circa 85-86.

Thank you for your kind response.

Curtis Vance Moss

Curt was a friend from way back in my younger wilder years and I stumbled onto this awful news tonight but cannot find anything about the circumstances of his death.

Would it be a huge imposition to ask you to call me? I have questions . . many questions!

Curt was the kinda cat you get used to missing but never forget . . this is SO sad!

RE: John Rottier request
Huisjen--I think our friend Carl Huisjen had a grandmother named Cornelia also. Carl is probably in his late 50s/early 60s. You must be some kind of cousin to him then. Cornelia was married twice then, with 2 different last names?

Thank you, Sharon. This family represents another where both our families come together again. Glad to share it and others, as I find them.

John Rottier request
Sharon, This name caught my attention, as I knew a John Rottier from Fremont--but the dates don't match up--possibly your John is an ancestor. "My" John died a few years ago, prob. late 80s or so then. His widow Lavinna is still living; a wonderful lady. They were dairy farmers back in the day.
I live 15 minutes away from Maple Grove Cemetery but obv. now is mid-winter and not a time to photograph.
I was curious why you are interested in this man? The Rottier family is a large one in our area.

I am not the manager for an Israel Burns so cannot transfer him, and without his memorial number cannot link him to son George. ctwardo

RE: Photo Request
Someone claimed it and I wrote her explaining the situation … but if I were you - Just "delete" that photo request and I will add it to my list. If you stumble upon others - just write to me. More than happy to have them on my first find in the spring / first thaw.

RE: Photo Request
You are more than welcome! This cemetery is located down a 2 track road that skirts a farm - and it not passable until the road is "dry". Even on rainy days, don't risk it, the tow trucks don't want to try to get stuck too! We have had about 3' snow in the past week or so, then some rain, now 3-6" more - so it will be a while before all is ok to venture down that dirt road. I have you on my list for spring.. and I will email you the photos privately also. If you have any others there - just write me off site and I'll be glad to get them.

Photo Request
Hello Sharon,
I will claim your photo request at Nordeloos but mark it as a Problem - we have knee deep snow here - so when we have our first thaw / spring - I will go out and get it for you. I have a list of "first finds" of requests for the spring - so I will keep your email handy and let you know when the photo gets posted. This cemetery is virtually not accessible during the winter months - 2 track dirt road back behind a farm. So must wait for thaw and the dirt to "dry" before we can get back to the cemetery. Enjoy your week! Megan
