Bio and Links
Bio Photo I retired in April 2005. I started doing genealogy in August 2005. It all started with my wife, Dianne,(Dianne E. Smith) and her interest. I've enjoy traveling to many cemeteries. Dianne would say, "My best friends were all cold". She passed away, November 12, 2007.

I have since married Bonnie (Snow) Johnson in 2009. I told her I would do my best NOT to let grass grow under her feet. Together, we enjoy "grave searching" for others as we can.

If you would like to use any photos I may have posted, all we ask if you give credit to us something like, "Photo courtesy of member #47060899".

Hi John,

I don't manage the memorial for Gabrielle, you could send the obit to the memorial creator if you would like. Thanks for your help.
