Bio Photo I love doing genealogy and have been doing it about 20 years. This is the perfect place to share information and photos of family.
Please feel free to use any of my photos that I have posted in your own research. If you see any corrections that need to be made please contact me and I will get it done.

A quote from Sunday Afternoon Rocking
"We who are keepers, we who cherish roots, have a great responsibility. If we have chosen to be keepers, we must most of all give today what we have chosen to keep for tomorrow.

1st (1864) marriage to Noah Lewis 1843-1866
1. Annie L or E Lewis 1865
2. Noah R Lewis 1865
~Noah was in then Civil war, it ended in 1865!
2nd (est 1870)marriage (to 56 yr old.) William H. Hamlin (Hammin or Hamblin),
~He as married to Abagil 1819-1862. They had Lucy A. 1843, Edward S. 1845, Arval H. 1849 and Alama Lavira 1851.

Hi Linda,

Calvin is now linked to his parents. Thanks for the information. I'm happy you received Audrey's memorial. Sometimes it does take a while. She looks very happy in her photo.

RE: Calvin J Barron
Hi Linda,

After checking my genealogy file I see that she is your husband's grandmother. She is within FindAGrave guidelines for a transfer, so there shouldn't be any problem having her memorial transferred to you. If for some reason you can't contact the manager of her memorial to do this, contact FindAGrave to get them to do the transfer.

RE: Calvin J Barron
Hi Linda,

I sent the request for her to link Audrey to her parents. Also to add her middle & maiden name & the date & place she was born & died.

How is Audrey related to your husband? If she is in his direct line, she should transfer the memorial to you.

I just notice you are local, you can get the obits from mesa county library.

I added the photos of the Headstone to Lloyd and Gladys Memorials you created, then I deleted the Memorials I had created. Thanks for the info. If you need their obits I will be able to look them up in a couple months, contact me after 1st of November if you need it.

I transferred David to you. But I didn't add the other person so I can't edit or transfer. You'll have to go to the manager of it. And as far as the obit...if Find A Grave allows them at all they at least have to include the paper they came from. Since you've been here days I'd read the rules to be sure. ggrandpa's buried @ Centralia too. So welcome & I hope you enjoy the site. :)
