Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in the city of Chula Vista, San Diego County, California, and reside here today. I am of Italian and French-Canadian descent. My parents are from Rochester, New York, and moved to San Diego in 1954.

Both of my paternal grandparents are Italian, born in Villavallelonga, a commune in the province of L'Aquila, Italy. They immigrated to the U.S. in the early 1900s, settling in Rochester, N.Y.

My maternal grandmother is French, born in Smith Falls, Ontario, Canada. Roots originate from an unknown region of France, settling in Quebec, Canada, dating back from the early 1700s. I don't know much about my maternal grandfather's heritage, but hoping to soon unravel the mystery.

I'm a nature enthusiast, enjoy the outdoors, traveling, and visiting historical places. Genealogy is a keen interest of mine and I've spent lots of time researching my own family history - always eager for new and interesting discoveries.

I began photographing headstones and creating memorials a few years ago, but didn't intend on continuing. Since then, I occasionally find my own duplicated memorials and typographical errors. I would really appreciate a reminder from you if you happen to notice my duplicates or other errors.

Please use the memorial's "EDIT" tab as much as possible when submitting corrections or revisions. This feature is very convenient - plus F-A-G maintains all editing records.

I will gladly transfer management of a memorial per your request, and you have permission to copy any of my F-A-G photos.

I enjoy chatting with F-A-G members, and I thank everyone for being so very kind and helpful. Please feel free to contact me at any time.

Thank you so much for taking and uploading the photo of my brother Jimmy Dawson's headstone at Glen Abbey. He died before I was born. My parents took me and my sister to visit his grave every year, but I haven't seen it in over 30 years, since I left San Diego in 1985 to join the military.

Take care,

RE: Harry Walters
Hi Eliza,

There is a book out called "The last of the wild west cowgirls" by Kay Turnbaugh.

It is about the life of Goldie Griffith Cameron.
and she was married to Hiram Sterling AKA Harry Walters (his stage name). This book tells all about Harry as well.

Goldie was the daughter of my great grand mothers, sister Allie Crank Griffith Crites.

Goldie and her mother are buried together in Boulder, CO.

I have added the findagrave info below on Goldie.


Green Mountain Cemetery
Boulder County
Colorado, USA
