Bio Photo Hi
We live in Visalia, Tulare Co., Calif.
We are documenting Visalia Public Cemetery

Phil was born in San Joaquin Co., Calif 1945. Retired but not tired. 6+ years in the US Navy. I have lived in New York, Washington DC, the New England states, Illinois and now back to Calif. I spend a lot of time doing family history. Prout, Breech, Cole, Hutson, Price, Ramsey, Higgins, Flick, Hopkins (Original Mayflower Passenger), Snow, Haughton,, Harrison (like Pres. Harrison), Wallace, Allgood, Kidwell, Callahan, Scott, Wallander, Hawkins - We have a BIG family - back over 25 generations (two Kings of England the War of the Roses) and still researching and counting.

Beth was born in Kern Co., Calif. 1952. I am the accountant at a Christian bookstore. I have lived in Calif. my whole life. I am also a sign language interpreter. I enjoy reading and counted cross stitch. I have recently taken up tatting. We are dog lovers with 2 Cardigan Welsh Corgis and 2 mutts adopted from the pound. (equal opportunity dog owners)

If I have added a memorial that is a family member of your I will transfer them to you. "YOU SEE, FAMILY SHOULD BE WITH FAMILY."

We have no desire to be the highest submitter, but to hopefully assist in filling in the gaps that may someday be priceless to others. We have spent many hours get photos & documenting memorials and the best reward we get is when a family member finds them and We can transfer.
We try not to add a name until I have a plot & photo of the grave.

I said to hell with the Find-A-Grave guidelines, it they are a love one or a Friend and not my family then I will transfer the memorial...

Consider this our written permission to use our copyrighted photos provided it's not for profit and it falls within the following guidelines: To add one of our photos to a Find a Grave memorial, allow us to do it by sending us both of the memorial #'s (the # of the one that has the photo and the # of the one you'd like it placed on). For use on non-Find a Grave websites, publications, etc... give credit to us and to the Find a Grave website by citing it or by providing a link to our Find a Grave profile.

Please TRY to check thoroughly for records before entering duplicate records!

If you're going to leave FindAGrave, PLEASE don't abandon your records. Turn them over to someone else on here so they can be updated and maintained. Thank you!

Please TRY TO BE thorough. If you want to add an obituary, please E-mail me the OB so it can be digitizes and post the full dates and locations, plot locations, etc., if known, to the proper fields and link to their family members WHEN YOU CAN.

Please TRY TO credit the newspaper you are getting the obituary from.

USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION ON THE MEMORIAL you want updated for updates requests, transfer requests, general inquiries ANY memorial. I will IGNORE AND DELETE suggestions, requests and updates and inquiries left HERE or in EMAIL, as they are REPEATEDLY, DESPITE THIS stupidly bold NOTICE.

From time to time I get emails asking me where I obtained the names of linked family members, etc.
I add information from update requests "at face value." I do not keep logs of who sent them to me, or when. If I don't see a conflict, I assume the info is accurate. The information I add is only as accurate as the source material, which, of course, can be flawed.

NEWS: Dec. 2013 - Every member's main page now has an "Edits" tab, which is at the top, to the left of "Contributor Tools". It alerts you to any edits pending and has a drop down box!! Check it out. It's clickable even if it's not highlighted. For more info. see the FAQ's or head to the Forums.

Hogan and Dunkle Connections
Thanks for all your great work in taking photos at the Visalia Public Cemetery. I have found that some of the profiles for the Hogans need to be updated, as they are not matched with the correct parents. The lines can get crossed with the Hogan and Dunkle names, as there tended to be several different Hogans married to several different Dunkles. I was able to verify via census records the correct matches. Please let me know how to best get these to you (regular email?) and I would be glad to forward. Thanks! Jennifer

Robert Askin
Please add to his bio:
Capt. Robert Mortimer Askin, hardware and furniture dealer, of
Salem, Mo., was born April 10, 1838, in the city of Dublin, Ireland,
being the son of John and Sarah S. (Shea) Askin, and grandson of
John Askin, who was a native of England and a plumber by trade.
He died in Ireland. John Askin, Jr., was born in Ireland in 1808,
but was of English descent. He was also a plumber by trade, and
died in his native country in 1873. His wife, Sarah S., was born in
Ireland in 1807, and died in 1880. She was the mother of seven
children, three now living, but only two came to America: William
A. and Robert M. The last named and his brother came to Canada
with their uncle, William Shea, on a visit in 1852. William Shea located in Upper Canada, and at the end of twelve months Robert M.
and William A. did not wish to return to Ireland. They lived in
Canada four years, and while there worked at the tinnerís trade. In
1856 Robert M. came to the United States, and located in Jefferson
County, N. Y., at Belleville, and here Robert M. worked at his trade
until 1859, when he ret1n'ned to Canada. In 1860 he returned to the
States, and stopped in Missouri, locating in St. Louis in August, 1862.
He enlisted in Company E, Thirty-second Missouri Regiment Infantry
Volunteers, for three years or during the war, at Steelville, Mo. He
was in the fights at Vicksburg, Lookout Mountain, Missionary Ridge,
and was all through the Atlanta campaign, with Sherman to the sea,
through the Carolinas by way of Richmond, and was at Washington,
D. C., during the grand parade. He then went back to Louisville,
Ky., where he was discharged July 18, 1865. His regiment was in
fifty-two battles and skirmishes, and he never received a scratch or
wound; was not absent but once, from December 9, 1863, to February
8, 1864, on recruiting service. He was not sick during entire service.
He entered the service as a private, and October 20, 1862, he was
commissioned second lieutenant. April 4, 1864, he received the
commission of captain of his company. After the war he located at
Steelville, Crawford County, and established a hardware and tin store.
In 1870 he moved to Cuba, and there engaged in his old trade, but
nine years later he came to Salem, where he has since been engaged
in the hardware and furniture business. February 22, 1866, he married Miss Clara Alice Jamison, daughter of Homer Jamison, and a native of Washington County, Mo., born in 1849, died January 22, 1873,
leaving two children, William Clarence and John Herbert. April 12,
1876, he married Frances Amelia Watros, a native of New York, born
in 1850. They have four children: Arthur W., Adney E., -Myrvin L.
and Matie Amelia. Mr. Askin is one of Salem's best business men,
and is the only furniture dealer in the town. He carries a first-class
stock of goods, and is a man well respected by all who know him. He
is a stanch Republican in his political views; is a member of the Masonic fraternity, the A. O. U. W. and the G. A. R. He was a member of the school board for a time, and he and wife are members of
the Episcopal Church.

Joseph Loy Atchley Jr.
Thank you so much for the unexpected transfer of Joe. I will continue searching for more information on him in honor of his memory, and add it as I find it.

Your generosity is greatly appreciated. A few days ago the Lord laid the Atchley family on my heart, and I am working diligently to find and make all of the connections.

Thank you for taking the time to document vital information that I could not do. I just started genealogy (about 40 years late). This is for Haskell and Viola Friend at Visalia Cemetery.
