Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Riverside, Burlington County New Jersey and spent much of my first ten years there. My father died in WWII having never seen me. My step-father was in the Navy so we spent a lot of time traveling around. I graduated from high school at the Naval Base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, joined the Navy in 1961, came out to California in 1963 and have been here ever since. I have been married twice, have three children and eleven grandchildren. My second wife Sandy and I have known each other since we were five years old and have been married since 2006. I have been doing my family genealogy since 2010 and a member of Find A Grave for over four years now.

I am interested in families in the Philadelphia and Burlington County, NJ areas with last names of Freck/Frech (originally from Germany mid 1800s), Broderson/Brodersen (Denmark), Stecher (originally from Germany mid 1800s) and Hirst, originally from England. Hirst were prominent in the cigar business in Philadelphia. Additionally, I am working on my wife's family, Wetherell and Goodwin in New Hampshire.

If you see a picture of a gravestone I have taken and want to use it, by all means copy it and use as needed. If you see a family members memorial that I have created and you would like to manage it, just ask.

William Case Styker
William ( Winfield) Case Stryker is my great grand uncle. Would you be willing to transfer his record to me. I have been doing my family history for many years. It took me over 20 years to locate him. I would appreciate your considering the transfer. I have entered his brothers and sisters on Find a Grave with his parents. The family lived in the state of New York. Thank you.

RE: Nellie Yancey
Hi Dean,
Thanks for the info. I've added Ethelburt and Attillie at Find A Grave and linked them to each other as well as daughter Nellie. There was no stone for Nellie. I've made photo requests for her parents, but might guess that they have no headstones, either. We'll see.
Thanks for the help, again,
John

Nellie Yancey's parents
Hi Dean,
I've traced Nellie's parents and have bio info for them. If they are in Haven 1123, let me know and I can create Find A Grave pages for them and the necessary links.
Thanks,
John

Nellie Yancey
Hi again,
I think Nellie's parents were Ethelbert and Otelia/Ottilie Thompson. They lived in San Diego in 1900 and 1910 and Bakersfield in 1920. Are they in Haven 1123?
Thanks,
John

RE: Nellie Yancey
Hi Dean,
Thanks for the plot number. The obit for her says she is buried in the family plot. I am guessing that this is the Thompson family plot because her husband and his future wives are buried elsewhere. If you have the time, I would like to know which other Thompsons are buried in Haven of Rest 1123. Hopefully her parents, at least her mother, who was alive when Nellie died. I can't seem to find Nellie in the 1900 & 1910 Censuses in order to find out who her parents were.
At your convenience, please. Thanks in advance.
John
Just maybe found that her mother's name was Ottilie in 1900. Is she in 1123 with another last name?

Nellie Yancey
Hi Dean,
Thanks for seeing that Nellie had no headstone. I have added that note to her Find A Grave page. Is buried she in Masonic 45-?, the Avery Yancey family plot? I can add that info if you supply it.
Thanks,
John
