Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am new to A portion of my ancestry research focuses on the Hale and Sebastian families from Tennessee and Kentucky who moved to California. The Needham family is connected to the Sebastian family through marriage.

Another area I am looking into is the Kempf lineage starting back in Alsace in the mid 1800s, immigrating to Texas and next California. Connected to the Kempf lineage are the Donsbach family from Nassau, and through marriage to the Vawters.

Most recently I am exploring the ancestry of the Clemons family lineage related to Phineas Harrison Clemons and his wife Alice Eugenia Douglass. Also, the lineage of Eugene Aloysius Marx.

In memory
Thanks so much for the link to this infant's mother. As for his father, there is a Wade Richard Odom, memorial #23966812, that is buried in Iredell, Bosque, Texas. He is buried by his wife, Annie E. Odom. In checking the 1900 census it shows that they were married 7 years which would be about 1893. That would be just about one year after his first wife and infant son died and were buried in Pipe Creek. That is the only Wade/Wade R./Wade Richard Odom that comes up in Texas records that I can find.
Thanks again, In memory

RE: James Grant Sebastian
I went to the cemetery yesterday and searched all around James Grant Sebastian but didn't find Laura. All the niches around James were from before he died - from the 20's and 30's. If you could find out the year she died, I could go to the office and ask them to search under both her maiden and married names but I'd need the date of death. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful!

RE: Bertha H. Lang
You're quite welcome! Bertha Lang and James Sebastian are interred in one of three mausoleums at HF. There are also extensive lawn graves. The cemetery was founded in 1899.

RE: Elizabeth
Hi Marsha,

Concerning Mr Baldwin, I looked him up on to get his dates. If you review the data at, you see a claim he died in Westminster, CA. A deeper dive on this information might provide a clue. I have a paid subscription to the site so let me know if there are documents I can pull for you.

RE: Laura A Needham Williams
Feel free to use whatever picture you would like. Email me directly at to let me know who else you wanted a pic for and the cemetery. That way I can have it with me and will try to do what I can after work. Thanks.

RE: Philemon Vawter
You may use any of my photos provided that it is noted in the comments that you acquired the photo from Find A Grave or that I (Traci Ashley) am the photographer. (Sorry it's not the best photo I've ever taken!)

RE: Clemons Family
Thanks for your note, Marsha. It was unfortunate that none of those graves are marked. But perhaps even a single stone with all the names on it would be appropriate; I'm sure the cemetery office could help with that. You might want to get in touch with them initially to inquire but also to have them confirm that my finding was correct.
