Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been researching my family history and its many branches for more years than I care to remember, and have always had a love of cemeteries! Now into my sixth decade, I live in the great state of Nevada, and am looking forward to posting my research info on this site. My focus, at the moment, is working on an accurate list of those pioneers who are interred in the Dayton, Lyon County, Cemetery. I would also like to add that I am relinquishing in advance any copyright claim to the photos and information that I have taken or posted on this site, and that my photos and information may be added to any other database or website (please just properly credit the Find A Grave database)

Hi Karen!

I got your message about Lydia McAllister and I thought the name Oliva Martini sounded familiar; I looked through my pictures, and both Oliva and her second husband Gino are in the mausoleum at Our Mother of Sorrows.

Do you want to add their memorials, since I think you have more info about them, and I'll add my pictures of their markers once you're done?

Hi Karen!

Thank you for transferring Tiny to me, I added some more info to her husband and son's memorials. I can't seem to find her other son Mike, but I'll let you know if I run across his stone in my photos of Walton's. I think I've finally got the whole cemetery photographed!

Have a good weekend :-D

Hi Karen!

Thanks for the heads up on Ethel, I updated her memorial with the info on yours :-D. If you'd like I can transfer her to you.

DePoali (DePaoli?) Family
Hi again, Karen!

I got your messages, and I went ahead and transferred Linnie to you. I was wondering, I also manage two of her children's memorials, William DePoali and Daisy Ponciano, would you like me to transfer them as well?

I also found an obituary for Linnie's daughter, Amy:
It seems she's buried in Mountain View, and it appears she's not on Find A Grave yet. I thought I'd send you the obituary and see if you'd rather make a memorial, instead of me making one and transferring.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help!

RE: Re: Gideon Sheldon
No, I am a double Sheldon, but not through Gideon. I just thought that the "e" spelling was important to note in the Bio.
Thanks, vicky

Nice photograph of Gino Cipriani.
It is tragic that he died at such a young age.
Makes one wonder what type of music he played.
Old Italian music for his community or
country western (as it was in the 20s).

Hope your daughter gets the computer set up in
the near future, It is frustrating not having
a dependable one to use,

Hi Karen!

Thanks for the extra info on Ruth! I put together a bio from the obituary on your memorial and some other stuff I found on Ancestry, and linked her to her husband.

If it's alright, I'll go ahead and delete the dupe now.
