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 three+ years now.

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.

RE: Potters Field
Yes, I have done them and some others sporadically throughout Potter's Field. I had been working on it until my Mother's Alzheimer's got so bad that she couldn't be left alone. Since her death I have moved back home to Utah and am glad to see there is still work being done on it.

Cheers - Kathie

Wetherell - Calvary in Newmarket?
Hi Dean. I'm looking at your request for a photo of the Wetherell grave in Newmarket. I live in nearby Newfields, NH. You list the cemetery as "new market" and I wonder if you might mean the Calvary Cemetery in Newmarket. Do you happen to know if she was likely Catholic? If so, Cavary wod be a good place to check. If you learn that she was buried at Calvary in Newmarket, I can take a photo for you.

Dean,

Several years ago, I had someone attempt to get a picture of his tombstone only to be told by the cemetery office they needed a notarized letter from his ancestor that they were related. Do you think you can run with this?

I know he is a common Hirst ancestor for a lot of people, so it would assuredly be helpful to all.

So sorry, 'Dean', must of had my son-in-law on my mind... It must be true what they say about getting 'older'... I will be 'applying' some of those sayings to myself!!

In short... "You do beautiful work".. :)

Memorial# 98907289
Hi Dean.... Could you tell me if you got the birth place for Henry Harrison Holmes - Memorial# 98907289 from Ancestry? If so, there is a transcription error on there. Henry was born in Lincoln County, Mississippi... and his mother's maiden name was Holmes. She married a Swan after Henry's father died. I sent links for their memorials via the edit links.

Thank you so much for all you do.
