Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love history but come from a family that had a historical split personality. Living near my mother's family place, my brothers & I heard stories from my uncles and mother but my father didn't talked much about his family except for a few stories about him growing up. I finally have the time now to discover both sides' family mysteries. I live in Sacramento, CA and I hope I can help you too.

My goal is not to have great numbers of memorials but rather great numbers of photos posted to aid those researching their families. So if I have a memorial that is related to your family, please request a transfer. Families should be together.

I Spoke Too Soon
Hi - Thank you for ALL your photographs and especially for checking with the cemetery about unmarked graves. Appreciate the photos of the plots even though unmarked. I thought they all had markers, sorry. Regards, Phyllis :o)

Thank you Lin for helping me put an end to the mystery of David, Agnes and Annie Bell. I truly appreciate what you are doing to help us Ancestry seekers put unanswered questions to a final end, Thank You.

RE: Mary Jane Throckmorton
Hi Lin,
You are very welcome. I'm glad I could help. I fixed the photo so it is now right side up. I don't know why it wanted to go sideways at first.
Yes, you certainly may use the photo on your family tree. To me, that is what this is all about, is sharing and helping others. I have my tree on ancestry too. Most of the time people are willing to share photos, but I had this one lady once that almost got downright nasty about me using her findagrave photo on my family tree. I had half a mind to drive the several hundred miles down to Oklahoma and take my own photo just to spite her, but it wasn't even a close relative, so I took the photo down and just went without. It was a lesson learned to always either ask, or at least read the person that took the photo's bio, and sometimes they will already state to "feel free to use the photo's as you see fit." I did learn too that using a photo without permission is against findagrave's policy. Isn't it funny though that Ancestry now owns findagrave?
I was not able to read Mary's husband's name. It was right where the stone had obviously split at one time and was repaired and set in a concrete foundation, which is great, because otherwise your Grandmother's stone would have probably been ruined by now. One good thing is that it give's her age at the time of death which given the death date minus the age using the date calculator gives her a birthdate of May 8, 1817. Does that match what you have?
As old as this cemetery is, there are still people being buried there, in fact, while I was there today they were getting ready to inture someone.
Good luck in your research!

RE: Local Obits
This gets you access to the Twin Falls Newspapers additions from the Public Library.
Some obituaries are posted on the date of death and others you have to search dates following deaths if there was one posted.
If I can help let me know.'

"Thank You" so much for the wonderful photo to add to the family tree. I put a photo request in for his wife over at St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery last week. No one knows why James and her are buried in different cemetery's. I'm wondering if you could do me a favor the next time your at your local library and have a spare moment and look up his wife obit.

Thanks again Larry O.
