Bio and Links
I am researching the following families:

Day, Bellah, Hitchcock, Mitchell, Castro, Van Sickle, Wynn, Petersen, Mangan, Hamblock, Beien, Scovill, Scheidt, Gross, Reinhard, Mauney, Honeycutt, Hathcock, Helms, Thomson, and Natella

I'm happy to make corrections and add information or family links to any of the memorials I manage. Please use the 'Edit' button in the upper right corner created for that purpose. This prevents mistakes, because the edit feature connects me to the correct memorial.

Most of the memorials I manage are from my extended family, however several are side branches. I am happy to transfer any of those memorials to direct family members.

I want to say a special thank you to all the volunteers who have added photos to my memorials, transferred family members to my care, and aided me with my research. I am grateful for your generous help!

"Through family history we discover
the most beautiful tree
in the forest of creation
our family tree.
Its numerous roots
reach back through history,
and its branches
extend throughout eternity.
Family history is
the expansive expression of eternal love."

If you have time and can give me some help, I would appreciate it. My email is

Thank you,

Hello Carrie,

I am the ggg grandaughter of Thomas Clarey and Elizabeth (Tunnard) Clarey through their son Thomas Clarey and his daughter (my grandmother) Pearl Elizabeth Clarey.

I noticed that you have connected many Clarey family members on findagrave and have posted information and photographs. I am so very very appreciative of your work!

Are you related to Thomas and Elizabeth Clarey?

I have some information and photos I would like to add to some of your postings. Do I need your permission to do this? I also have a possible correction to your posting on Harold "Hal" Wynan Conefry, Sr. (my dad's cousin). I believe he died in Franklin Co., Ohio (not Franklin Co. Illinois).

Last question for now - I see that you posted photos of Harold "Hal" Wynan Conefry, Jr. on findagrave. Are you in contact with his son? If so, would you be willing to pass on my contact info?

Thanks again so very much!

Can you tell me anything about the Gerdes and Jansen parts of Anna's sir names/ She might be my great grandmother. Was she married to Fred or Fredrick Gerdes?

Theodore might have been her son, Doris is his daughter. I am her son Jim

From: JTHitchcock - 3rd great-grandson of Isaac Sr. Hitchcock

Re: Isaac Hitchcock (aka "Old Man Hitchcock"), (aka Isaac Sr. Hitchcock).

Is there any "proof" records, grave marker, etc., that Isaac Hitchcock was buried in the Pioneer Cemetery located in Watsonville, CA?

Thank you for any information you may provide.

re: Florence Cunningham, Santa Clara Mission memorial # 126519345
Hi Carrie!

Went ahead and added the obituary to her page, but I edited it to say she is survived by her two sons and their wives, as well as a daughter, because of privacy concerns (as FindAGrave states, anyhow). I also added links to her husband and son now as well and processed your edits. Have a good day!

I would love to take over her memorial, thank you! She is my great great aunt. Her husband Reuben W Rich's memorial also if you want me to.

I received a "correction" email with a bunch of information from Ancestry - all of the information on the memorial came from the headstone, with the exception of the mother's maiden name which I indicated at the time came from the CA Death Index. Am I missing what incorrect information is there?
