|Bio and Links|
Grandma Mac (Elizabeth Ella Kellogg MacFaddin) was the genealogist of the family. She got the "bug" from her father. She kept all her research in an old black suitcase. There were notes on all sorts of scraps of paper – the back of a grocery list, used envelopes and even a bank statement here and there. Her handwriting was neat and dainty. She would come down from Fresno and Daddy would drive her in to the Los Angeles Main Library to spend all day there working on her research. When she passed away in 1970 the suitcase was put away, until my sister took up the task in 1999, of sorting through all of Grandma's bits and bobs of information.|
I personally had no interest in genealogy. That is until 2008 when quite by accident, I found my Dad's name in another family tree. So it's not my fault that I've become obsessed with the family history. I have a need to connect the dots.
Back to Grandma Mac, wouldn't she just have a field day with all the information that is at our fingertips today? Many thanks go out to all the volunteers through the various groups, like Find A Grave that give their time to help put the family puzzles together.
Names I am researching: MacFaddin/McFaddin or McFadden, Boynton, Breed, Caldow, Clark, Cody, Higgins, Hiscock, Houghton, Kellogg, Rathermel, Sairs, Schuck and Wilder.

Thank you so much for the photo of my grandmother Rosa P. Ortiz' grave. I would like to know if you could change the year of her death from 1988 to her correct date of 1980. Thank you.

You helped me back in 2011 with a relative who was buried in Orange County, so when I got stuck on this problem, I thought of you. I'm helping a friend with her family research, and discovered that her great grandmother died in Orange County, but I don't know where she's buried. Do you do look-ups in the Orange County newspaper? If not, that's okay---just thought I'd ask. I appreciate the work you do!
Name: Clara Gertrude Wilson
Death Date: 19 Mar 1982
Death Place: Orange
Mother's Maiden Name: Howe
Father's Surname: Towsley

Thanks so much for posting this memorial. I think the information I have for her birth/death dates came from the SS death register. However, sometime in the early 70s she wrote my father asking for an affidavit stating she was 90 years old. She wanted to go on a trip with her son Bob, and didn't have a birth certificate. I suppose she must have wanted a passport. So, her birth year is really anybody's guess.
