Bio and Links
Bio Photo As a retired senior, I have become interested in family geneology and have been fairly sucessful in locating family history. I take grave photos when requested and have had several of my photo requests fulfilled.

Contact me if errors are found.

Any family member who views a close relatives file (parent, grandparent, great grandparent, or sibling) on findagrave and wishes to take control should contact me through the Edit tab on the findagrave memorial and I would be happy to transfer control to you.

Other transfers will be considered.

Do not request a transfer without indicating relationship to person.

ROY D. BASSETT #37442198
I know this is a long shot, since you only manage his memorial, but, do you have any additional information about Roy D. Bassett buried in South Bend Indiana? I believe this is my third cousin who was born in Florida; I have made contact with his son on Facebook and he was shocked to learn that this Roy may be his father. He had always heard that he died "somewhere between Florida and Texas."

I've already learned that Roy's obit contained no information regarding parents, survivors, etc.

Holy Cross
Hi John,
Did you get my email and have any luck contacting Eastlawn sextant?

I have an obituary for a Sister who "died in the motherhouse of the Sisters of the Holy Cross at St. Mary's" and was buried "in the community cemetery".

When I look up Community Cemetery in St. Joseph County, it is aliased to Holy Cross Cemetery. I happened to see a memorial with a photo you took at Holy Cross Cemetery, so I figure you have been there. It looks like there are only men buried there (on findagrave). Do you happen to know if there are sisters there also, or is there another Community Cemetery for St. Mary's? I don't see this woman entered at Cedar Grove. She's not coming up at all on findagrave.

Any ideas what cemetery St. Mary's used in the mid 1950's? I thought maybe there are sisters at Holy Cross, but either they were not marked, haven't been entered yet on findagrave, or in my brief look I just didn't find any sisters. I just looked at the first 200 or so.

The photo of the tombstone has "D" as the middle initial rather than "B." I think this man could POSSIBLY be Roy Douglas Bassett who was born in Florida.

By the way, if anyone reading this is familiar Roy's family, please contact me. Roy's SS# was issued in FL; I think he's the person I've been looking for several years.
