Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm in the process of photographing every ceramic photo portrait on markers at the Santa Clara Mission Cemetery in Santa Clara, California. So far I have over 6400 listings with over 12350 photos and eventually all the photos will be uploaded to Find A Grave. I'm still in the process of taking care of this, so if you see a memorial created by me at the Santa Clara Mission Cemetery, I have a photo(s) for it. Contact me directly and I'll upload the photos right away. I'm about 4/5 of the way done taking photos for the entire cemetery and hope to finish soon and get everything uploaded. I didn't realize what a big project this is, but it's been fascinating, historical, emotional and well worth the time and effort. Once I'm done with this cemetery, I'll move on to another and start all over again. Just wish I had more time to spend doing this. Any problems or corrections with any of my listings or if you have information to add to a listing, please feel free to send it to me via my e-mail address. If you are related to one of my listings, please feel free to request a transfer of ownership, it's not about quantity... it's about quality. Thank you very much!

R P Ferguson
Hi Dan, thanks for posting the R P Ferguson grave. He is part of my family. He was in the Civil War, next week just after labor day I will visit his grave. I will be coming from Pennsylvania. He is originally from Andes New York. He lost is life by drowning by trying to save anothers life. It is a real sad story there are newspaper accounts. I will add more after the visit to see what else I can find in the town.

Josephine Quartararo Amato #60075342
Hi Dan....Thank you so much for posting this memorial! Josephine Amato was my great-grandfather's sister. They came to Ellis Island together from San Cipirello, Sicily in 1910. I have memorials for her parents and siblings here on Find A Grave and I would love to link her up with them. Would you kindly transfer the management of her memorial to me? Thank you!

Giuseppe Taormino has another Memorial under the name of Josephe #90830479. Which is incorrect.

Giuseppe is my my husband's grandfather's brother.
The 3 brother came here from Italy.
Pietro #143026881
Fillippo #30552407

Can you please transfer Giuseppe to me so that I can add more details and photos? And also his wife Mary Ann Taormino #62737538

Joseph J Joaquin #61437676
So sorry. Researching my grand uncle, Joseph James Joaquin and spoke to his great-granddaughter, it turns out this Joseph Joaquin (#61437676) is NOT related to my Grandfather, his brother Anthony, or his parents, Antonio and Maria Joaquin. Can you please delete the links of this Joseph Joaquin's page? Thank you and I am truly sorry for any inconvenience !
