The memorials that I have created here on Find A Grave are those of my family, only. I do not list grave locations of strangers.

Please do not 'lift' 'copy' or take or steal any of my personal photos from my memorials, as they are copyrighted by me. Please do not add additional photos of any sort to my families memorials without my permission.

The headstone and monument photos that I have added to Evergreen, Olivewood, and Riverside National Cemeteries, are yours to take and add to your trees, as this is the sole purpose of my documenting these cemeteries, only to help others.

Got your message, Brigitte (cousin). :-) Thanks. I see the problem. Will fix it but it might take a couple of days to complete. In the meantime, is there a way to contact you privately? My email is, if you wouldn't mind getting in touch. Karen

RE: Tucker
Hi Brigitte,

Thanks for your response. That all makes sense now. I had forgotten about the info you had sent me from the DNA and ancestry. Of course it's all possible that we're in the same boat with King Richard and the line is not as we had thought :)

Martin Tucker
Hi Brigitte,
I had sent you a request to link Martin Tucker with his mother Happy Tucker, which would then link him with his brother Lampton who my line descends from. I had deleted my memorial for Martin so there would just be the one. You declined it stating the info conflicted, so I wanted to see what that info was. I have Martin and Lampton as brothers, and the mother as being Happy. Lampton named his first born son after his brother Martin. Happy's memorial # is 62086680

Rhoda Bell

FYI I know you and D lynch have been searching in the Upper 5 for Rhoda Bell.. Well like I mentioned in an earlier reply, I have solved the Mystery of the Upper 5 Plots. Rhoda Bell is located in the Upper 5 plot 223 but not at the East end as expected.. Look on the West end directly in line with the Back double doors of the Mausoleum She is in a triple wide set of markers.. Email call or text 951 742 1480 with any questions Maybe we can exchange mystery over coffee.. :) ...

Take care and enjoy your weekend.

RE: Tucker DNA
Hmm, strange, I know there was a half brother somewhere along the line, maybe someone else claimed to be the father of an illegitimate child. It happened quite frequently. It's a mystery.

RE: Caldonia Patterson
Thanks for replying. The good news is I discovered two of her sons are buried in the same cemetery, so I am quite satisfied I have "found" her.

The sons are James Oscar Patterson
and Ray H. Patterson.

Thanks again!

Caldonia Jane Patterson
Hi, Brigette. I believe Caldonia Jane Patterson may be my long-lost great-great grandmother. I would like to confirm, if possible. Find A Grave Memorial# 144506275.

If this is the person I've been searching for, she was born in east TN in 1861. Her husband died about 1907, then three of their 8 children died between 1911 and 1914, one of whom was my great grandmother, Mary (Mollie). My great-grandmother's children remained in TN with their father. Growing up we were told our great-grandmother's family had moved to California after all this loss, and thru I've been able to establish that fact - but I hadn't been able to find information on Caldonia until now - possibly, that is. We weren't sure if she moved to CA or not, but it seemed logical to me, since she had no remaining children here in TN.

The Patterson children who moved to SoCal were John Silas, James Oscar, Martha, Ray and Joseph.

Any connection or confirmation would be appreciated! I hope to hear from you. I'd be glad to share any information I have about family, if it turns out we are related.

Thank you.

RE: Tucker Family
We did do it through Ancestry. I haven't got much of a tree, but as I recall it is called Esther Craven. I hope that helps.
