Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in Fresno, California of Alabama born parents, got into Genealogy in 1997 when I could not figure out what else to do with this computer on-line. I have built up quite a lot of pictures of old shots of the cemeteries of Clay County and Jefferson County Alabama. I have visited most of the cemeteries of my ancestors and my Wife's ancestors in Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas. A Self-proclaimed Historian with a California Historical society (E Clampus Vitus), I am visiting places of historical interest and with my trusty Dimage , Vivitar and Olympus digital cameras have been taking pictures of headstones at whatever cemeteries we may visit and Historical Monuments in our travels in California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Washington. In Fresno, I have added the 1919 biographies of early Fresno residents from the Paul E Vandor book titled "The History of Fresno County" to as many listings as I could. If you have something you would like to have added to a Bio, just drop me a line.

I follow FindaGrave rules and usually transfer close relatives within 30 days. You can complain to the FindaGrave administrators if you want, but you will likely find they too have little patience for impatient people.

I'm proud to say he was a veteran of the US Navy and served in Vietnam.When he worked at the PD I wanted to follow in hi footsteps and be like him. Our family misses him dearly. Again, Thanks for the Rememberance.

Hi Lester! I noticed that you put up photos of the graves of Sally and Bryan Cole, who are my great grandparents. I was wondering if you have a relation to them, and if so, find out what information you know about them. I'm having a heck of a time with personally stories from my family. At any rate, I am so grateful to you for posting those pictures. You've given me something to go off of. Have a nice day!-Ashley

Hi Lester,
I just found that nobody did a page for Sara's hubby John who is on her headstone.
I Just made a page for him. Would you please add your photo to his page, too? He's linked to her.

RE: Jay Smith
Thank you so much for your kind message. It is always so nice that someone takes the time to say something so special. Jay was always fun to be with. Jay was very happily married, but sometimes life choices get in the way. I miss him and hope he is at peace. Thank you again.
