Have been researching family geneology for last few years. I live in Las Vegas, Nevada, with my wife, daughter, and three cats. Originally from Dolores, Colorado, my family homesteaded the area in 1873.Robinsons, Duvalls, Jacksons and Lofquists on my moms side, Wesches, McLaughlins and Hydes on my dads. If you are related to any persons memorial I have added simply contact me and I will happily transfer. Doesnt matter to me how closely related you are, if Im not and you are, then I think you should have it. If I am related, then its a case by case basis. I have transferred memorials to people more closely related than I... Wanted to add a bit here, simply to thank the many people who have made this site an amazing experience for me. A nicer bunch of people I have seldom met anywhere, and I think its wonderful that so many honor the dead, both their own, and others. God Bless You All!
RE: Edward Robinson I have included Edward's unmarked grave site photo which shows the Masonic monument in the background. I thought he might have been a Mason, because of his burial location--glad I mentioned it! You may also use this photo as you wish. Happy Holidays!
RE: Edward Robinson I have looked 3 times in his burial area, and didn't find a stone. As a note of interest, this area of Section H (where Edward is buried) belongs to the Free Masons and also contains many GAR burials only! So, without knowing more history of this Masonic-GAR area, I can't state for certain that your Edward was a member of either. Edward seems to have been buried at a later date than most of the Mason-GAR burials; possibly the Masons stopped burials and sold the empty graves later on. You can certainly use the posted photograph for your genealogy. If you ever find out your Edward WAS a Free Mason, or had military service which entitled him to a GAR burial, I have additional photos of that same area where Edward's grave is that show the Masonic monument in the same photo.
RE: Herman and Elizabeth Dessauer All the information in the profile came from his passport applications, etc. It is OK with me if you use it, although I am not happy with how it flows. I may take another look and rewrite it.
What is interesting to me is how much time he spent abroad after becoming a naturalized citizen. I have found individuals who returned home for visits, but none who stayed for two years or more!
RE: Frederick D. Robinson You're quite welcome. I looked around for other Robinsons but they were the only ones I found. Will search again and hopefully stumble upon some others. Will keep you posted if I'm successful.
