Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello! I have been working on my family genealogy/history for a number of years (!!) and would like to thank all those who have made contributions to Find A Grave....I finally got around to making contributions, at first involving mostly my 'immediate' family (450 memorials by now), but now mostly non-family.

Paternal ancestor surnames include: Wesley, Taylor, Randolph, Wilson, Huff, Craig, Smiley, Higgins, Pierce, Simpson, Thompson, Walker, Goodall, Campbell, Carson, Downing, Minor, Ford, Aiken, Hampton, Amend, McMillan, McCollum, Trumbo, Custer, Brown, Sutherland & Hale.
Maternal ancestor names include: Garden, Spreng, Baird, Coble, Horner, Merckle, Young, Stoner, Matthews, Barrett, Clark, Holsworth, Witten, Brandenberry, Murdock, Streeter, Knosp, Faber & Wells.

Ancestry includes English, Scottish, Irish, French-Speaking Germans and German-Speaking Germans.

The current Findagrave project on which I have been heavily involved, with other contributors, is to create a complete listing of the burials of the Stafford (Kansas) Cemetery. Most of the names are established already. Now we are making links and adding marker photos and obituaries/biographies to the memorials. Making excellent progress.....!!

RE: Patrick David Barrett, Jr.
I called the cemetery today and confirmed that you are correct. According to their records, the grave does have a headstone. As I mentioned before, I'll be there on Memorial Day weekend, and I'll take a picture of the headstone for you.

I'll look for it when I'm there on Memorial Day and will take photos and post them.

Forest Lawn Glendale
Hi, Thanks for your message. I looked and it appears that Forest Lawn in Glendale is only 36% photographed. How do I contact the tropicogravers? Are they on findagrave? I was just under the assumption that you lived near Forest Lawn in Glendale.

Grave at Forest Lawn Glendale
Hello Wesley,
I am wondering if you might find a grave for me? Paul David Burkett. I am pretty sure he is buried there. Born: 3/4/1922 and died: 12/30/1984.
Thank you,

Anna Mae Wesley Cooper, wife of Oral V. Cooper (79213727), died this week. I have made a Find A Grave memorial for her 145327817. I will transfer to you if you would like.
