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 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.

Found two more Vietnam solders!!!


Happy to report that I found two more Vietnam soliders.

Steven Doyle Chambers #61895392 is in Mountain View Cemetery.

Ronnie Holly #61897524 is in Odd Fellows Cemetery.

I already went and photographed there headstones. So if you could add the cemeteries to them that would be awesome. If you do add photo requests before I put the photos up please put a note that I already have the photos?

Gerald Weipert's middle name is actually Joseph. His death index is incorrect in some sites. He is my husband's grandfather.

Corrections to Theodore Thure Steombexk
Dear Lester,
Thank you for the extensive biography you posted for my great, great grandfather, Theodore Thure STROMBECK !
There are a couple of corrections/additions I'd like you to be aware of. The son-in-law whom Thure lived with in 1910 was Frederick Charles NINNIS (not Mimis, NOT Fred O.. NINNIS), my great grandfather.
Frederick was married to Thure's daughter, Christina STROMBECK. Together they ADOPTED ROSS ALBERJACK NINNIS, my grandfather.
Again, thanks so much for your time and consideration!

Memorial# 94817180 - William J Williams

My wife, Harriett Williams Wheeler, (and her two 1/2 brothers) are 2nd Great Grandchildren of Capt. William J. Williams "Find A Grave Memorial# 94817180"

Brother Dorian Williams is deep into family history and has much of the biographical information you cite. Can you tell me where you got the information and picture for the memorial?

Thanks for all of the great work.

Hi there, wondering you'd consider a transfer of my family member unless of course he's a relation of your own. I'm Lisa (#46994468). Take care.
