Bio and Links
Bio Photo I only link to BURIAL UNKNOWN MEMORIALS in very limited circumstances. This is Find-a-GRAVE, not a site for building your family tree (try or for that).

I've been into family history since the 1960's. I'm grateful that I started when I did as so much family information gets lost because we don't ask questions early on.

Find a Grave is a great site and powerful resource. Thanks to all who work so hard to fulfill its primary purpose - documenting known burials.

I'm paying particular attention to Cypress Lawn Cemetery in Colma, CA and Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland, CA. I appreciate being able to help fill in for all that information lost in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire.

The site has also provided a couple of wonderful finds regarding my family history --- primarily Nancy Brenneman Gast Rhodes (check her out!). Until I found her on Find a Grave, everyone thought she died in 1852. I'm hoping to be able to provide similar breakthroughs for others.

I'm happy to make changes and links for well documented information.

Kasper family - Colma CA
Thank you for creating the memorials for several members of the Kasper family. This family is in my tree, so I will be connecting children to parents, etc. Your time and effort in documenting their gravesites is greatly appreciated.

Dr. Noble Martin (52724841)'s spouse Virginia Martin
Dear Larry,
I cannot find a memorial for her, but I have a wonderful news piece on her, dated 1908. I've searched the CNDC papers to no avail. I'm posting it here to make a copy in case she shows up somewhere on Find A Grave:

San Francisco Call, Volume 104, Number 90, 29 August 1908

Berkeley Parlor, Native Daughters, Entertains the California Pioneers
BERKELEY, Aug. 28.— At a reception held tonight in Native Sons hall in Shattuck avenue by Berkeley parlor No. 150, Native Daughters, for the California pioneers of the organization, Mrs. Virginia Martin, widow of the late Noble Martin and one of the foremost pioneer women of the state, recounted reminiscences of the days of '49. Mrs. Martin, who was the guest of honor, told interesting anecdotes of the early days of California.
She is the organizer and founder of California Pioneer Women started in San Francisco and has been, connected with many historical events since the early mining days of this city. She is a resident of this city and has made her home for many years with her daughter, Mrs. Clara Partridge [Samuel Partridge-Ed.] of 2413 Milvia street.
Besides the story telling of Mrs. Martin, literary exercises and musical numbers made an enjoyable evening. The committee in charge consisted of Mrs. Frank R. Wehe, Miss Nettie Meek and .Mrs. C A. McKelvcy.

RE: Alford Louis Reimers
Hey Larry thanks so much for getting back to me! I will be sure to update you when/if we figure out who is buried under that stone. I have a cousin in Sacramento who can go out to the cemetery and locate the stone for the staff and maybe they can come up with something. As always appreciate your diligence!

Alford Louis Reimers
Aloha Larry! My grandfather disappeared in 1925 without a trace. While I was in Cypress Lawn cemetery this past May looking for the grave of my great-great grandmother I stumbled over a headstone that said simply REIMERS. I have been trying to work with the cemetery to find out who is buried under that stone but they don't have information. Just grasping at straws at this point. Any help would be appreciated...Bonnie Jean Blackmore
