Bio and Links
Bio Photo Karin Gallagher is a cemetery enthusiast who currently dwells in the Sacramento Area. She enjoys exploring cemeteries all over California from Humboldt to Hollywood.

-"I first used this site to find graves of the famous. Recently I was going through old photo scrapbooks that my great grandmother started. They were filled with tons of family info, obituaries and photographs from 1880s-1980s. I decided that the information and photos contained in these scrapbooks were much too precious to be kept moldering in a drawer. My hope is that this info helps to bring the memorials to life and that it might help others to trace their own family history. Even if it doesn't succeed in doing so it has been fascinating documenting my own family's past."

Harrison Shriver
Hi! I am also studying Shriver Geneology. My great great grandfather was Harrison Shriver. He was adopted by William McClellan. He lived in DeKalb County Indiana.

I can seem to find no reference to him before he was adopted. Just wondering if you might have come across his name in your research.

His children are William Shriver and Mary Shriver. The McClellan's seemed to have adopted several children who are related in some way. However, I cannot find any information on Harrison and why he would have been adopted.

Thank you for any leads you might be able to give me.

RE: Frances Lee
Since I voted, they have taken the stars off the bottom, so I don't know what is going on.

Famous bio---
I noticed you visited this memorial. I too thought it should be "famous". Here is what the creator told me. It would help if you want to vote. Thanks.

RE: William Kercher Sr.
William Kercher Sr. Find A Grave Memorial # 71476752 now linked to his father John Kercher find a grave # 106581595. Since William Kercher Sr. was your great-great-great-grandfather, would you like me to transfer ownership of the memorial to you? He's not in my direct line. William is the father-in-law of Eliza Cripe by her first husband. I'm descended from Eliza's fourth husband John Wilson Shearer.

John & Hannah Wolfe

Thanks for sharing the information regarding John & Hannah.

In researching my family history in England, I have found John & Hannah Wolfe. I believe that the name details for Hannah are incorrect and that she was born Hannah Jane Mercer in 1858 in East Peckham, Kent, England. I do have details and documented records for her siblings, parents and maternal grandparents.

Hi Karin,

I am helping a famjly with their genealogy and and would like to know if you found any obituary for Sarah A. Steiner. This family descends from Carl R. Pierson, Sarah's only biological son. How do you relate to her husband, Samuel Steiner?
