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 the cemeteries 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.

RE: Jay Smith
Thank you so much for your kind message. It is always so nice that someone takes the time to say something so special. Jay was always fun to be with. Jay was very happily married, but sometimes life choices get in the way. I miss him and hope he is at peace. Thank you again.

Photo extravaganza
Please let me know if you would rather not be advised when I add a photo to one of your contributions; a request having not been made. When I'm at SP, I take many photos and take pleasure in adding them. I was once requested to not add photos by a contributor as he had already taken pics but "had not yet" added them (two years later). Until I hear otherwise, you'll continue to get them! Thanks, my friend. Gary

Hi Lester,

I am not familiar with this website or how it works, but the above posting you have, for Phillip Vargas, is my father. So, I am wondering if I can somehow link to this posting from my Ancestry.com, or if I create an account on this website? Also, are you related to Phil in some way? Or do you just take pictures of graves for people?

Hello. I just wanted to give you a heads up about the information in the memorial section for this Find A Grave page.

The data you have for birth and death dates does not match the grave stone picture that is posted right next to this information.

Hi Lester,
I am writing to ask permission to use your headstone photo for a distant cousin, Elsa Belle Bennett Corbin, in my ancestry.com family tree. I would give you credit for the memorial and the photo.
Thanks for your hard work to document those who have passed before us on this site.

Hi Lester. John "Jack" Wiley Brady was my mother's uncle and I research the family lines. I was wondering if you are not related, may I have the transfer of his memorial and any relatives of his to maintain. I was born in San Jose and we visited Fresno quite often as a child to visit family. My father had Funderburg family there also so I had aunt's & uncle's from both sides.
Thanks
