David and Ann Journeay
Hello Gary,
Thank-you for adding the Journeays to Find a grave. I was hoping someday they would appear. I added a few more children they are here in C.A. Also 1 in Texas I put in a request for him to be connected to his parents. I have a photo of David Journeay I will add. Do they have headstone at the cemetery ?
David Journeay had a ggg granddaughter here in Stockton C.A who passed a few months ago at 92. A very dear lady, who had some photos and old newspaper clippings on the journeays from Davids daughter Kate Journeay Long.
Keep up the great work !!

Charles Clothier bio
I have hesitated for several days considering the bio that you submitted for Charles. I would prefer something about his life, not just the tragic circumstances of his death. I tried to think how I would feel if I found my father's memorial and that was all that was there and I have decided not to add this information at this time. I did not know him so am unable to add anything personal beyond his military which is also visible on his tombstone. I will keep this information and if I can find additional information on him I will consider adding it in some manner. Thank you.
