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 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.

James Monroe Stanfield, Jr. - Memorial #91603395
Lester, I entered a duplicate on this memorial, which you had previously entered. Would you please transfer the information and photo I have on the above memorial to the one you entered, and then I will delete my entry. Thanks.

Irene Lowery
I was overwhelmed this morning when I saw you had transferred Irene's memorial. Thank you! I know Irene would be be pleased. I appreciate your gesture so much. Bless you for what you do to insure those that are no longer here are always remembered! (This from a fellow historian- because essentially this is what we do, remember.) Cheers! Randy

Charles Robert Barnard & Lillian
Found them! Yay! They are in Chapel of the Light, Rest, E-2-2. I figured a judge had to be some place pretty nice so I zipped in there after doing some photos at MtV & BMP. If you go through the west side door & walk straight forward till you come to a wall, they're in the 2nd row up, 2nd niche from the left. One urn for both, pretty (copper?) rose garland across top of wooden case. Of course I couldn't take a picture since everyone knows me by sight & most by name, & I really don't like to do what I've been expressly forbidden to do. I leave it up to you about getting a picture. Found the 2 people listed in the Fresno Co. Cemetery requests too! Both at BMP. A great day for solving mysteries!

Thank you for accepting the link/edit for Harry Hamling. So glad you added a memorial on Find A Grave because I never would have found him other wise. You have allowed the family to be complete!
