Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find A Grave is a GRAVE REGISTRATION site.

I've made plenty of mistakes starting out.
Still making corrections. If you find something that needs attention, let me know.


1)read the FAQs

2)It is not necessary to manage a memorial. Owners will update it if you ask.

3)It is your responsibility to suggest a correction/addition (submit a SAC) the proper way. Read the guidelines. Requests not made in this manner or left on this page will be DELETED.

4)You may add pictures yourself to any memorial by clicking on Add Photo.

5)You may use the photos I upload for personal reasons by citing me as the source.

Please follow the guidelines and we'll all have a wonderful experience.

BEANIE & JUNE who helped with the research and the thousands of hours we all have spent looking and developing this site not only for us but for others. Their input for the Auburn cemeteries has been transferred for me to maintain. Records will continue to be added. Any information, links, pictures, etc. are very welcome for all to share.

You were very helpful and kind to me with my research. Auburn Public Library. RETIRED 2012

RE: Roland & A J Finkenbeiner
I found them at East Lawn on Folsom Blvd in Sacramento. I added a photo. It's not a good photo. Down in corner in a dark room. I still remember visiting Roland's grave I thought, in Auburn. Anyway, they are found.

Fannie Turnbull (1880-1957)
Fannie is buried at Foresthill Community Cemetery. I added a photo a couple years ago, but was alerted by someone today that mine is a duplicate of yours. I'd be happy to add the photo to your entry (and delete my memorial) if you would please change burial location to Foresthill. Hope all is well for you.

Liza Boswell
Johnson Boswell - Penfield Cemetery
Dear Ms. Ragan,

In 2013, you posted a photo of some gravediggers near Johnson Boswell's stone in the Penfield, Georgia cemetery. I was just there today, and I am pretty sure that must have been the funeral of his widow, Eliza Cheney Boswell. I would VERY much like to have the other funeral photographs you mentioned. Is there a way you could send them to me, please? Thank you so much.

Esoteric Fraternity Cemetery
Hello and Good Day,

Chris Ward here, fellow contributor.
I'm looking for a quality overview photo of the Esoteric Cemetery in Applegate. For an upcoming book.
I see your friends with Sentimental Sally and I am unable to leave her a message and she, I would assume has more pictures to potentially share. If you have contact info for Sally I would greatly appreciate putting us in contact.
Thank you Glenda. By the way I am a big fan of your work thus far. Particularly Penn Valley (my home town).
Thanks so much
