Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew-up in Fresno County on a 20 acre Thompson Seedless vineyard & farm. My Prunty and Grimm grandparents came to CA in 1905 from Ritchie County, WV. My mother's family, Westbrook and Skaggs are in Alton, IL. I am working on my genealogy for the Grimm's and Prunty's. I have a Batchlors degree in Business and I am retired from the State of CA. I am happily married and I have one son Brannon, who was born in 1977.
I add all Prunty's in the US that have died if I find their obituaries.
But, instead of adding many new memorials, I fix and add information to update the current memorials of my family and friends, mostly in WV and other states. I belong to and I get the correct information from there. It is a lot of work going back and forth to each window!

Susan Sperry Rentzell
Bette-Everett's father was Charles Melvin Sperry. Melvin and Mamie were my grandparents and Everett was my uncle. Are you related to the Sperry family? If so, how? I'm always interested in 'meeting'

Dena Prunty Sperry
Dena Prunty Sperry was the wife of my Grand Uncle Ernest Victor Sperry. I have seen Ernest's grave and the grave of their daughter Fayne Sperry at Mt. Lebanon Cemetery but I did not know about their two sons. You say that she died in 1915 but apparently her burial site is unknown. I didn't know that you could add a memorial without the cemetery being known. Apparently I have a lot to learn. How is that done? Where did you get the year of her death? I couldn't find it.

I see that their younger son was named Clarence Pearcy Sperry. My grandfather's name was Clarence Burdette Sperry. I have a photograph that is inscribed "Uncle Clarence". It is not my grandfather so I wonder if it is Dena's son Clarence.

I am interested in any additional information that you can provide.

I noticed that you entered some information on him and was wondering if you are related to him. He is my Great-Grandfather.

John Prunty
I edited John Prunty's DOB but upon checking census records & his obituary (which I added to the memorial) I discovered the original date was correct so I changed it back. The age given in the article you posted is incorrect.

Please remove your message regarding his age from the memorial.

RE: harold and J Prunty

Thanks for asking if I'd transfer the Prunty memorials, which I've done. I don't mind how you manage them as I'm just glad a relative now has them. While I was photographing markers at Linn Cemetery, I took photos of almost every marker and added Findagrave memorials where I thought they were missing. Best wishes!

I have entered a memorial for her husband, Allie. Would be happy to transfer to you since you're family, if you wish. Also added marker pics for her. They're yours to keep or delete.

Let me know whether to transfer.
