Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a volunteer at the Historic Marysville Cemetery and a member of the, Friends for the Preservation of Yuba County History.
I love to receive additional information on any memorial I have added as the Marysville Cemetery is very old and family members of those who have long been gone are hard to find.
Please use the edit section on the memorial when you can, and the suggestion box and/or message works when you have more to add or a question to ask.
I find the use of the word, "FYI" (for your information) when a mistake I made is found and used in a suggestion via find a grave email,to be very rude. Just put the correct info in an edit and I will change it. Mistakes are made by us all and sometimes the information out there is hard to come by and typo's do happen. Help is always needed and kindness is always welcome.

thanks overdue
I, too, am guilty of being in too much of a rush to "get things done" that I rarely take the time to thank folks like you who are seriously dedicated to preserving the memories of so many long-forgotten people. So--thank you for all you do.

I have been particularly intrigued by all the unknown, unnamed infants in my various families who are only known because their mother, in either the 1900 or 1910 censuses (or both) stated how many children she had had, with the number of then-living children being fewer. In several cases, because of the info that people like you have added to Find A Grave, I have been able to identify some of these infants. It has been gratifying to find that my "guesstimates" for their birth and death years have been very close in many cases.

I agree with what you wrote in your Bio that FYI does have a rather snooty or snotty ring to it. Luckily most people on Find A Grave seem to understand the collaborative nature of what we're doing here. The new--well, not so new any more--editing system has saved so much time for so many of us! But there are still a few people who just don't "get it" and seem to think that their discovery of a minor error makes them superior...or something. I've still not figured out what makes them tick.

RE: Strain family
I looked for the erronious memorials to remove them and was not able to find them. Could they have already been removed? Sorry, this website is not very user-friendly. If there is something else I should be doing and you know how I can accomplish it, please let me know. Sorry I created memorials in error.

Thank you for your assistance.

Dear GMT,

I want to extend my sincere gratitude for the copy of C.D. Wight's obituary. Because of the wealth of information it provided, I have found her children and a previous husband. The obit. has been added to Cesandria's memorial.
Your contribution is truly appreciated.

RE: John Chenoweth #79448620
I have no explanation of the note I had made on this memorial referring to the stone. I have never been to California to this cemetery. I am now sure that the 1853 birth-date is correct and not the 1857. I have deleted the note.
Sorry must have just goofed.

LT Barney
You wrote:

L T Barney was 2 years, 2 months, 8 days
old born in Marysville per Burial Book maintained at Marysville City Hall page 67 and although she is a female child, she is too young, so you must have made a mistake in linking her to the Barnes children.

I whole heartedly agree and have asked for corrections to be done. The bio of the two children state who their parents were. They should be linked to them.

Thomas Court
Thank you for searching Marysville cemetery for Thomas Court. It is disappointing that there seems to be no gravestone for him, but we will have to live with it. There were 3 sons: Thomas, Henry & John COURT, born 1849, 50 & 51, but I do not know if they were buried at Marysville Cem.
Are they listed?
Thank you.

article removed from Andrew Hinman memorial
Thank you for calling this to my attention. I was not the contributor who placed the article in the Bio section and I have removed it in its entirety from this memorial which F.A.G. Admin transferred to me when the original contributor left. Please accept my apology that this article was there as it never should have been posted.
