Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Moved to West Union, Iowa as an infant where I spent the first 25 years of life. Relocated to San Bernardino, California in 1964 and was employed at the Aerospace Corporation. In 1967 I accepted a position at Autonetics in Anaheim, a Division of North American Aviation. The company later became North American Rockwell, then Rockwell, and finally in 1996 Boeing acquired the missile and defense portion of Rockwell. Retired from Boeing as a Quality Assurance Senior Program Analyst after 32-1/2 years with Rockwell.

My husband and I now reside in beautiful Temecula, California. We enjoy family research, walking cemeteries, travel, gardening, skiing, and investigating the wonderful scenery of the area. We have a blended family of 5 children, 8 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren, and 2 cat-children.

I enjoy posting memorials on Find A Grave for a couple of reasons: to honor and remember my deceased relatives, and to help others reestablish family connections.

- All information posted is for my or my husband's relatives and is derived from our research.
- All information posted is within public domain which means that the information is not private and is available to anyone.
- All gravestone photos were taken by me or my husband. I don't mind sharing but please ask permission.
- I will be happy to make changes if credible evidence/documentation is supplied.

Van Buren - Fadden link
I am the Great great Grandson of Elizabeth (Gillett) Van Buren, who later married John Fadden. We have been trying to find where she is buried. Do you have any info on her?

RE: William J. Bearden (Memorial# 96631059)

Your welcome.

I don't believe we are related.

I'm researching early Corpus Christi and Nueces County families to help me with my family history, and I try to save obit's, etc. that I come across to memorial pages to help others when I can.

take care,

William J. Bearden (Memorial# 96631059)
Hi Kay,

I came across the obit for a W. J. Bearden which I believe is the same William J. Bearden in the memorial page you created. I located the death certificate that appears to match the obit, but the dates don't quite match his memorial page. I've saved copies of the obit and death cert to his memorial page. If it's not the same person let me know so I can remove them.

Take care.

Hinkle at Greenfield
According to the cemetery office, there is no separate marker for Harriet; she's buried with Edwin Calvin & Elwood Calvin, in Section 2, Lot 108, grave 3. I've posted an overview of the Hinkle plot.
