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.

Pearl German Photo Request
You requested a photo of Pearls memorial. The office has no record of Pearl. Also I looked through the California Death Records and Ancestry. I wasn't able to locate anyone with this name that matched even close to the dates.

Possible Transfer?
Would it be possible to have you transfer my Great Great Aunt, Virginia Mills (42440524) & her daughter Fern Mills (42440521) to me. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Daniel F Monroe Mem# 35287228
Your wonderful posting (I'm wondering what the source might have been) does not have a date of death. I think there is a date (3 Mar 1930, Glenn County, CA) in the California Death Index, 1905-1939 for Daniel F Monroe on While that doesn't get a burial site it would help update this memorial if you agree.

Lee Hanson

I was working on getting grave photos for obits I had found. One of them was Lee's brother Duane. He his buried next to him. Lee is buried in Kingsburg Cemetery. If you could add his burial location that would be great!! I added his headstone photo and edited in some info I found.
