Bio and Links
Bio Photo *****Please ask and wait before permission granted before posting my pictures on another website as most likely I will post there for you too!- I've already found this to be an issue too many times already. Ancestry states that you need to be the one that has taken the picture before you post it - if you didn't I may report it!******


I've been interested in genealogy for almost 30 years now. Yeah I know that makes me seem old but I caught the bug when I was in 4th grade!
I love doing research and attempting to find more branches in my forest! I'm currently attempting to post pictures from the many contributions I've added on find-a-grave.

I currently live in Wisconsin. I have relatives still in Iowa so I visit several times a year.

My husband has recently started helping me on findagrave.

RE: Melody ??
Sorry about the empty message. Double hit the "enter" key by mistake.

I drove across the bridge today and spent two hours with records staff at Cypress Lawn cemetery. They checked their records, including the "day log", which shows every burial and cremation that took place on 11/16 through 11/20/1916. They could not find her in any of the records. I also checked with Sunset View cemetery, AKA Berkeley Crematorium, to see if she was cremated and placed there, since the mausoleum was not built until 1928. She was not and I also verified that she was not placed in one of the other crypts.

The next step is for you to order her death certificate to see what it says for her disposition. We can go from there.

RE: Almona
The photos have been posted.

I do not find any records for Melody. However, I believe that she died 6 hours after birth on 11/16/1916 (as an unnamed Eltse). I found the mortuary records which confirms that it was Ralph's daughter and Glennie Davies had N. Gray & Co. handle the arrangements. She also had the remains cremated on 11/18/1916 by Cypress Lawn cremation. Since she is apparently not in the alcove, I will check with Sunset View cemetery to see if she is in Baby Land. If not, Cypress Lawn will have to be contacted, but I can't see Ralph leaving her there. Will let you what I can find.

RE: Almona
Ralph took care of everyone and kept them close at hand.

From the top down of the alcove:

Glennie Davies (sister of Oma)
Oma Davies
Almona Davies (mother of Glennie & Oma)
Ralph
Ruth

There is a separate urn for Mildred Rule Eltse (05/02/05 - 04/26/1951) possibly Ralph's second wife?

Bobbie Hunt
Bobbie Hunt was a friend of my husband. If you are related I will transfer his memorial to you. I have a concern of his first name being Robert. Everyone knew him as Bobbie and he shows up on the 1940 Census as Bobby. His obit and the USSS Death Index has Bobbie J. I have yet to find his headstone. Please advice.
