Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is David Alan Jones, I was born on February 25, 1956 at Mills Memorial Hospital in San Mateo, CA. I am a student of history, including that of my own family and direct decendants; "Without he or she, there would be no me". Cemeteries are excellent resources for genealogy research and also places of quiet reflection for the living.
I have written a book, "US Silent Service Dolphins & Combat Insignia, 1924-1945". I enjoy research into the military history of the United States. I just finished writing a book titled "Five War Patrols" about Floyd Caverly aboard the USS Tang.
My son and I are members of the "Son's of the American Revolution" and my daughter is a member of the "Daughter's of the American Revolution". I am also a member of The War of 1812 Society. I serve as a captain on the Klamath River Fire Department. Thanks for looking at my bio.

RE: George Deacon
Hi Dave, I see you left flowers for Eber's father George Deacon. Would you like to manage his and Susan's memorials? I added what bio I could to George's page. See what you think --Kim

RE: Ida Margaret Vandervort
Hi Dave, yes we are related! I was fortunate to work with Jim Murry when he was still living and use his Vandervort Genealogies Manual from 2005 that he published. He was a great person and left a valuable tool for researchers. There are a few errors and of course with time newer info but his info is such a wonderful base to work from. Hope you have or can find a copy of it he printed usually one a year, this copy might be one of the last years and is huge over 500 pages. Over 20 years ago I found a Vandervort living about 2 blocks from me and contacted him, to my delight he gave me a manuscript of his family that was like a journey of all his Vandervorts that were from New York !! His side split and went to Wisconsin and that area while mine went to Ohio. I sent Jim a copy of it and is included in his book now. I think with all the Peter, Pauls and Nicholas is where confusion happens. That side of the Vandervorts did have a Rev War person in it, mine that came to Ohio did not. Am rambling sorry. Nice to meet you!

You made a duplication of my memorial for Sarah. She is with our family and we have family pictures. My memorial is #67133964 and it was put on Find A Grave 3-29-2011. Please remove yours. Yours was put on April 24, 2014. I did send you a notification through the edit button but have had no response. Thanks, Linda Rhoadarmer

Ida Margaret Vandervort
Hi Dave, nice profile you have, I visited your site on too. I am a Vandervort so always nice to meet family. I pasted a copy of your memorial for Ida because (hate to say this) but it is a dup. The one I maintain for her has her headstone and has been there since 2005. Would be good if you could delete yours and if you have any different info you would like added to the one I have would gladly add it for you. I do not see much difference, except people are doing double links which can get messy, especially since Find A Grave sends all of them to us on now.

Thanks for all your hard work.

I am new to find a grave and volunteered to be a photographer. Got an email for a new request at Oak Lawn Cemetery in West Plains, Mo. and found quite a list of old requests. I am trying to photo as many requests as I can find and was interested in your request for Rufus Mahan as he was an uncle of my husband.

RE: Reed
Oh, thank you so much for being here when we needed you. The fire was a tragic event for our community, along with the forests burning in the Klamaths. Thank you for taking on such a difficult job.
