Bio and Links
Bio Photo Unless I have some way to contact you to verify, I won't make changes to memorial pages.

I got involved with genealogy in 1982 when my parents were celebrating their 50th anniversary and wanted a family reunion campout with cousins they hadn't seen for many years. Mother's father was one of 13 children who had been close while growing up, but had drifted apart. My job was to "connect the dots" as to how we were related. As many of you know, it has exploded from there.

I have been a Find a Grave member for several years, but have recently become involved in picture taking. When I get a request, I can't just take that picture, but surrounding ones.
Thank you to those who have taken pictures for me. Let me know if I can help you.
Family names I'm working with are Wallace, Isenberg, Merrell(Merrill), Berry, Scheuffele, Crowley as well as some others.

Sorry,,, just had a thought. If you live near the cemetery, and might visit it, is there any record in the cemetery office as to who commissioned or arranged for the tombstone. It had to have been done after his death in order to have a death date. I can find no info on him in Yolo County, CA, but records of 1970s not available online. I'd appreciate any ideas you might have. G. Reck #47206933.

You added photo of tombstone. Do you have any more info on him? He was my grandmother's eldest brother, who "disappeared" and was assumed dead. He was supposed to be returning home to Big Spring, Howard Co. TX at end of WW I, but never got off the train. Investigation by authorities could not locate him, and he was assumed mugged and tossed from train. His siblings never knew what happened to him. I discovered him by accident, realizing he did perhaps "disappear" but did not die. There's no doubt I've got the right brother.... I've seen his application for SS#, and parents names are correct (Samuel Houston Bell and Laura Ann (Wright) Bell of Callahan, Co. TEXAS) and his birth date is correct according to family Bible. Have no idea why he did not meet his uncle John Wright as promised at train in Big Spring, TX. Very odd. He's in midwest much earlier (census) but never contacted his family again after WW I. Did you take photo only, or do you have some oonnection to him? I am very curious. Gloria Reck #47206933,

Emmett Wilhite - 88140561

I am new to Find a grave. I found my uncle Emmett and noticed no information on his site. I filled in his Birth and Death information and thank you so much for taking care of that.

Is there any way to put in his parents names and dates. They are not in Find A Grave system.

Father: Charles Alexander Wilhite 1868-1935
Mother: Della May Casey 1878-1970

He is one of 14 children. He was a sheep herder in Idaho when he died.

My Mother was his sister: Jennie Wilhite Martin.

Thank you so much.

Blakeway - Capay Cemetery
Hi, Corky. The Blakeways are my mother's father's family. I went to the Capay Cemetery a couple of times last year but was unable to locate any of the Blakeway graves featured here on the website. I believe you photographed a few of them. If you recall, could you please narrow my search by telling me which part of the cemetery to look in?

Thank you very much,
