Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Los Angeles, California. I moved to Orange County when I was 12. I was California's first certified pharmacy technician. It took me 30 years to get my AA. I retired 5 years ago. That was when I started my family history research. I had only met my father a couple of times before he died and knew nothing about his side of my family. and Find-a-Grave have helped me find family members. I am looking forward to meeting some of them.

I am working on my Native American Indian heritage. I have/had family members who are/were Tuckabatchee, Cherokee, and Creek. Specifically I am looking for my maternal great grandmother, Norma Lucas, and my paternal great grandmother, Isabella Anderson from Ireland.

RE: Mary Elizabeth Wright
Thank you so much for the kind words!!! I have a soft spot for unmarked graves and also like taking the group photos that hopefully add more information for family searching. Thank you for mentioning it. :)

RE: use of photos
How funny! I've actually always wanted one of those toilet-paper-holder dolls. The crocheted TP holder I do have is cute; it is a hat. And I also have a cute crocheted sofa that is a tissue-box holder, but I always wanted the doll . . .

Please add the story you told me to Ida's bio, along with anything else you can add. I like to see personal stories on the memorials. It makes them more meaningful.

Take care,

Ida Wright
I bet I know the reason for the difference in her birth year. She may have lived a lie regarding her age because it looks like she got married very young, if the information you have on Frank's memorial regarding the year they got married is correct. But I guess you'll be finding out, right?

Take care, and if you need anything else, just let me know.

RE: use of photos
Permission granted. That's why I do this! I will transfer Ida to you. Then you can make whatever changes are needed. You are entitled to a transfer of great-grandparents.

Also, there is a Maria Wright in the same row as your great-grandparents, approximately 20 graves away. There could be a connection, or maybe it is just a coincidence. I created a memorial for Maria just in case.

Best regards,

RE: Philip Hueftle
You are very welcome!
The smaller stone is located at the foot of the grave. Rarely see footstones anymore, but some of these with military background have their military service stone as a footstone in this cemetery. :-) A

RE: Blain Overman at Santa Ana Cemetery
Hi Sharee: I was able to pinpoint the location of his grave, but it was unmarked. I posted a photo on his memorial noting where the grave is if you wish to look and see if you were in the general vicinity of his grave.
