|Bio and Links|
I will be happy to add information and links to memorials that I manage.
Please use the EDIT tab on each memorial. I can usually get updates done within a day or two.
If your updates are taking longer to appear, then we are probably traveling and I will be getting to additions/corrections just as soon as I have internet access.
If we are on a trip, we could be out of touch from the internet for as much as 2 weeks at a time.
A transfer request must include your relationship to the individual, and a little extra identifying information. This is just to help prevent any potential mix-ups.
Please feel free to use my photos in your on-line family tree. It would be much appreciated if you would give credit to Find A Grave as your source for the photo.
Thanks ahead of time for your help and contributions. They are much appreciated!

|Werner Howald||Mr T H Allen|
I only have a moment, but I looked at the California index too, and found that he was the only Thomas Allen that is listed with San Louis Obispo Co. that died, at all, and it's for 1907 . The County Code was 40.
Am baffled, I created a memorial for Mary Ellen " Hodge " Harjes's husband William Harjes and when I called the Mortuary in Edwardsville, Illinois. And they told me that me was over in Valhalla Cemetery in Illinois, but when I called Valhalla, they had to call be back, and what they said was that he wasn't there or his wife. And added that this has happened before and as me to call around cemeteries around Edwardsville. I did, and nothing. So right now am calling back in St Louis to a few at a time. And so far nothing. Not only that, but I've called around for her daughter Helen Edlund in the Bay area too.
And I haven't had that time to run over to Cambria's cemetery and ask about that book. I would like to take photos of the pages.
I don't think that there's mush more to research on this family, do you ?
|blueheron14||RE: George Combs|
Thanks for asking. I've just checked key primary sources--marriage license, draft reg. card, death cert.--no middle name or initial. Also checked the 1880 to 1940 censuses--same. His mother's bio, and father's obit.--ditto. He's an NMI--a no middle initial. (Suspect that I once had him conflated with a close-in-age George M. Combs in Missouri.)
George Combs is a great-grandson of one of my most challenging ancestors, the first Rachel Redd for whom there doesn't seem to be a single contemporaneous record.

|Werner Howald||Cambria Cemetery|
After pressing and pressing over again it finally found its way in. Thanks for showing me this site. I was moving around here and there, looking at what it may hold. And then I would try again the site for Cambria Cemetery then it worked. I will spend some time right now and see what it says.
|Werner Howald||RE: Photos / Bradhoff|
I had tried a number of times to see this SLOCGS site and telling me the server can't be found. Weird. Interesting that this Vera M Bradhoff is known as a baby, when she was around 20 years old.
And I'am still calling around to see if we can find Mary Ellen Harjes grave site. Her daughter could have shipped her remains back to Missouri where her father was buried.
The last three days have been very busy.
|Werner Howald||Photos / Bradhoff|
Are we working over time on this one, or what. I deleted and add the one, so that takes care of them, but any time you want me to remove it, or for some other kind of documents, let me know.
On this Bradhoff family, I just happen to look at the family's of Terrill and this Baker family that were mentioned in the 1880 census. It was just a curious look up. Now you must be thinking what's the connection, no connection at all. I was just curious about the Bakers. In the census is this David and his family as neighbors to Elisha and Mary. David just happen to be Annie Bradhoff's sibling. Their parents are buried in Cambria's Cemetery. John C. Baker came to California as a 1849er. Then around 1854 he went back and came out again, but this time he brought his family. In the 1850 census it shows that John was not home at that moment, wife was living with her parents. Anyway Annie was married by 1900 and still living in San Simeon in 1910, so am assuming at least that Baby Bradhoff is Annie's, but am not sure about Vera M Bradhoff. The 1900 census states that she said that she was married for 7 years I think, and 1910 census states 17 years. She also stat s that she " Annie " had 2 children in both census. And I see no other Bradhoff family in Cambria in 1910. So this was my reason for this Baby, but not for Vera. I think that Vera may had been a niece of Anni's husband. That's what am thinking. Like you, I can not find any Vera M Bradhoff in California at this time. It be be a dead end I'll try to figure this out. As For Annie's burial place. I need to be at home around the afternoon to call the Downey Cemetery which the City Hall people seem to be in charge on this one. I'll let you know.
And I still plan on visiting the cemetery here to Se if they will let me take a photo of that Book.
Did you have a nice weekend.
I went a head and posted another photo of the grave site here. I think they should remove that tree. So, after you view it, I'll remove it.
I posted the 1900 census showing I believe is Elisha as Tiller this time. I wonder if he went by Eli. This census shows him saying that he came in 1864, just like he said in others. And he said that he's a carpenter this time, like you said. Oh yes, I don't know of any town in San Bernardino called Waterman. I have been up a road over there that the canyon called Waterman. Its north of town. I had gone up that way many times to its resorts. And I have a friend that lives up that way as well. Many times this road to Crestline is closed after a good rain.
|Werner Howald||The Book|
Now after I finished with the Cemetery around 3:30 pm, I went down to the historical Society and tried again to catch someone's attention. This time I ran across someone how really advised me to look into this book. She then took off and I looked in the back for people that might be indexed.
The book is called " Where the Highway Ends. Published in 1974 and with a new edition of last year. She came back and told me that it was out of print for some time, they offer new docents to read it, but only when they can get a hold of one.
Ok, in this book, a Chapter is about the October 1889 fire that took place. And so it mentions " Mrs. M. J. Terrill, a milliner, and then other people, reestablish here " . They are talking about west village area. So we know have a occupation for her. And that she would have had travel that distance from San Simeon. So, we're they both here at the time or just Mary.
|Werner Howald||Today's visit|
If you go to Elisha's T's memorial, I went ahead and put on two photo just to show you that the office was closed and that I took a photo shot of the one page that you may have seen. I did take that page that Mentioned Farrell as will. After you've seen these photos, I'll delete them. I did walk down to the burial site and took some photos of them asl well. I do wish that they would remove the tree to the right of Elisha T, site, for the tree has moved some what since the time you made your shot. I will post those after you've seen these here. More in a little bit.
