Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Joanna Gentry. December 29, 2014, I retired from local government after 28 years. I worked in data entry, construction survey, and GIS. My married name was McIntyre. I was born in Visalia, CA, and I am a first generation Californian. Both my parents were born in Oklahoma and I have many ties to that state. I've been working on my family tree in a serious way for a couple of years. Just recently I found several generations of my family buried in Paradise Cemetery, Paradise, MO. My mythical Irish ancestor became my very real Irish 3rd greatgrandfather! Through DNA I've proven that I am 1/3 Irish. I'm working on finding my greatgrandmother Alfar Breashears Whitley who died in 1913 after giving birth to her 5th child. I know absolutely nothing about her parents. I've added a few memorials, and I'm just learning what a great tool FAG can be. And, I'm "meeting" some really wonderful caring people who are FAG volunteers. At the request of a Gentry relative who I'd never met before and is a very very distant relative, I visited my Santa Paula cemetery and got information about her great uncle. Because of that work, I've recently "met" this man's granddaughter. It's a small world, isn't it?

Im so sorry that it took me 4 years to get your message!! I just found your email today!!! I had a file that was/is Findagrave Not Done, as I was sick during 2011-12. Anything I couldn't get to, I put in there. It seems I missed a few!

RE: Leonard Vandever
You are welcome... and LOL.. I was the owner of the duplicate record. I found it when I was trying to fulfill the photo requests. Since I input directly from pictures of stones, the system didn't catch the duplicate because the original memorial didn't have the same name as the stone. I have added my two pictures to the original memorial, asked that he update his name and have already deleted my memorial. Thanks.

No problem I will keep looking. If I can find anything this week I will let you know. There is only one Lakewood and it is a very large cemetery.
