Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have always interested in where my family came from. Like all families, we have stories of famous/infamous relatives. Have been working for over 20 years trying to find the truth behind the stories. So far, I have been unable to prove any of the stories, but you never can tell! Only returning to the US for family visits limits the amount of time I have to explore physical records. With the advent of information on the internet, I have found great quanities of useful information. Find A Grave is a marvelous asset.

RE: Eddie Benevich
Thank you for being so patient. I was finally able to get into the mausoleum but there is a slight issue. Eddie and Betty Benevich's Niche is very high and behind old faded glass too. We found a chair to stand on and my son took quite a few pictures in hopes that we can be successful in getting one that will come out legible. Dottie

Did you get the request I send to your address? If not, I can resend it through here, or try to find another way.
Thank you so much. Peggy Coffman

Benjamin Scudder Lamb
I know you leave a lot of flowers on memorials. However, I noted that in a message with a flower for Benjamin Scudder Lamb 1782-1856 you called him "cousin." Can you please tell me of any relationship that you have to Benjamin Scudder Lamb? I am still seeking information about him and his family.

Thank you for responding,

Thank You!
Today I was looking at the memorial of my cousin, Leonard Walker Shelby and from what I read he is also your cousin. I see your name and remarks you posted on many of my memorial and I just want to thank you for doing this.

Eddie Benevich
Hi Carolyn,
I apologize for the delay, but the mausoleum that contains Mr. Benevich's crypt has been closed due to earthquake retrofitting! I checked there again today and the Cemetery Operations Superintendent said that it should be finished in about two more weeks.
The request you put in is going to expire, but don't worry; I'm going to reject this request and when the mausoleum re-opens, I'll simply upload the picture to the memorial independently. You don't even have to re-submit a request, because it might be a little longer than the two weeks that Find A Grave holds a request. My parents are at this cemetery, so it's not out of my way at all and I certainly don't mind doing it. So you're going to get a rejection, just ignore it and trust me that it will get done. Dottie

Daniel Long
I saw your name on Daniel Long's memorial page. I am also related. I am related from his son James H. Long. My great grandmother was Columbia Long of Lauderdale County Alabama. Her father was Daniel W. Long, also of Lauderdale County.

Col. John Van Valkenburg
Thanks for remembering Colonel John Van Valkenburg of the 20th Indiana Volunteers, especially on Memorial Day.He is buried at Maple Hill Cemetery in Huntsville, AL.
I know what you mean about trying to get "the rest of the story." I've found some great ones. Can you imagine what it was like to come to a Southern town after the War and try to help it rebuild? (He was a hardware merchant.) Sons and daughters married Southern spouses and much of the family history just wasn't talked about. So I go digging! I love it!
