Fallen Graver...
Sadly, this contributor has passed away. Please consider visiting their Find A Grave memorial page and leaving some virtual flowers. Their enthusiasm for cemeteries and willingness to help future generations lives on through their contributions to Find A Grave.
Bio and Links
Bio Photo For my love of genealogy, I am delighted to contribute to Find-A-Grave whatever information comes my way. My family of ancestors is quite extensive and their amazing accomplishments have left me feeling very humbled. From England aboard the "Mayflower" to Council Bluffs, to Utah, to California, and to so many other points East, West, North, and South, they traveled through unknown territory and suffered heart wrenching hardships. They fought in wars from the American Revolution to the Texas Alamo, at Gettysburg, in Germany, France, and on the shores of the South Pacific Islands. I thank them all and consider myself very blessed to have descended from such magnificent men and women.

I am a sixth generation Californian and now an adopted daughter of Texas. I am a grandmother, great-grandmother, and hopefully the history of our family will be continued by those who now follow.

If you have any questions about this page, please email I will do my best to give you any information that you may need.

William Colville and relatives
Good morning and my name is Kina and I have fulfilled your request for William Colville but I made an observation while I was there. William is buried next to an Arthur Zech 1960. Dirctly below both of them is Jeannette Colville Zech and Arthur Zech 1990. Thought you would be interested in this. I have the pictures and if you want me to send them to you, let me know.

Dear Jo-Ann,

Thank you Maam for all you do, have done, and shall do.

It is quite well.

Please add me as your friend on Find A Grave now.

We had 8 direct kin on the Dutch Liquor Transport Ship Mayflower. Even years before a few 1584 Ronaok Colony, 1607 Jamestowne too.

It did leave from Holland. Dropped off cargo, and left with two other ships which turned back.

The American Holiday set by President George Washington near where we celebrate the American Thanksgiving on that revolving Thursday had set November 25th as a National Celebration for all time on November Evacuation Day. When the Bloody Brits finally left NYC, NY ! They even nailed a King George Flag to a Tall Greased Pole when they left.. Yes like thumbing the nose at us..

Thank you and your families! GBY!

Class of 1962
What a wonderful tribute to the NHHS Class of 62 with your memorials. I am a current walk on instructor for the music program (band and color guard) and walk by the flag pole daily that has the military names. I got curious to see if they had memorials and I looked up Kent Anderson and found his classmates. Thanks again for your work.

RE: Mary Glaza
Thank you, Jo-Ann, for taking the trouble to research and add a memorial for my great grandmother. That was very kind.

Marvin Haussler
Thank you for your flowers and kind words you left for my uncle Marvin. I'm so thankful for find a grave that we may honor those that have left us. I hope he knows how much he is loved and missed even though we never met him in this life. I feel when I get to the other side, I will know him and he will know me. Again, thank you so much for being so kind. Jani
