|Bio and Links|
I'm a California girl who grew up in Marin County. Moved to Solano County in 1997. Researching family since the 1970s and as of 2014, have over 105,000 family ties. Two Mayflower Pilgrim ancestors - Richard Warren and Francis Eaton among that number.|
Started taking photos of tombstones for Find-A-Grave as a Thanksgiving 2008 project that turned out to be more involved than first envisioned! Started with 120 names, but quickly grew to more than 2,500 in just one cemetery!
Have had a love affair with cats all my life. This is Simba, which means Lion. As a kitten he looked just like Simba from Lion King, hence that is how he got his name. He was a diabetic, had pancretitis, developed kidney infections, was anemic, and he walked on his elbows on his hind legs. Comic relief to see him waddle! Went through a couple of wars with the neighborhood cats, both of which he lost, but he was a survivor anyway. Loveable and loved us to death.
He started the downward cycle while we were on vacation in July 2013. The vet was able to bring him around and kept him going until we got home in August. It is with great sadness to announce that on August 15, 2013 Simba was finally sent off to heaven to be with God and all the other worldly cats and kittens. Maybe he'll find some playmates? He was 18 years old and in human years that would be age 84!
The vet told us when he was much younger that he had feline aids because of the first cat bite he received and not to expect him to live very long - perhaps to age 9. That came to pass and he was fine until the next diagnosis, which was a tumor at the base of the head which was inoperable but it wasn't affecting his lifestyle at the time. Then six years ago the diagnosis of high blood pressure and diabetes. Still healthy and active until the last few years when the muscles in his hind legs broke down but he overcame that disability and continued to walk about as described -- more a waddle than a walk. Next diagnosis -- gluacoma in one of his eyes but it didn't affect his getting about and he never went blind. The last diagnosis was the pancratitis and then kidney infections. Everything wrong but he was a fighter till the end. We loved him very much and he will be sorely missed. The vet who became his doctor at the beginning of his life 18 years ago was there at the end. He said Simba was his favorite and we know his entire staff loved Simba when he was there for office visits or to be boarded while we traveled. He told us that the life expectancy for a cat with diabetes was about 3 years, so Simba lived 3 additional years (or 6 total)with the disease. Again, he was a fighter.

Ok thanks, and San Francisco has a website where you can request obituaries, and if San Francisco delivers papers to Napa, CA, would San Francisco Public Library have obits on anyone who died in Napa, CA?

Hey do you live in Napa County, CA? Because I have some relatives that died in Napa County, CA, and I was wondering if you lookup obituaries too? And I have several requests should I send them to you one at a time?

Hello, would you please remove the two photos you posted to memorial 17979602? There were already two photos of same thing, leaving no space for family photos.

I'm glad to provide the photo; I only hope it was what you were looking for, although still hard to read.

|John Beardsley||RE: John Curtis Beardsley -aka Jonathan|
I am also a decendant of John, and agree we should get the information about our grandfather (with many 'greats' required prior to the 'grand' of father) correct.
The available information is not conclusive. I 'think' that Jonathan is the proper name, with 'John' or 'Jon' used as a derivitated nickname . . . but this is simply my opinion, I cannot point to any record that 'proves' which is the proper spelling. As I have stated, I have gradually switched from using Jonathan to John simply as a matter of convenience.
|John Beardsley||RE: Ray Carlton Beardsley name confusion|
No, I was referring to John Curtiss Beardsley, son of Joseph, grandson of William the immigrant and patriarch of the American Beardsleys.
Are you aware of the Beardsley genealogy by Nellie (Beardsley) Holt? A copy is on the archive.org site. Here is the url for the page with John Canfield Beardsley: https://archive.org/stream/BeardsleyGenealogyTheFamilyOfWilliamBeardsleyOneOfTheFirstSettlersOfStratfordCon/Beardsley%20Genealogy%20-%20The%20Family%20of%20William%20Beardsley%20-%20One%20of%20the%20first%20settlers%20of%20Stratford%20Connecticut%20-%20by%20Nellie%20Beardsley%20Holtpdf#page/n337/mode/2up
Hope that posts properly. If not you can email me at jgdb.twcny.rr.com and I can send you the link that way. The lineage ends at John Canfield, but it lists his wife and children which might give you some clues? I haven't worked on this lineage yet, sorry I cannot be of more help.

It is possible that it is an unmarked grave. The office wasn't open while I was at the cemetery. I took photos of all the headstones in the family plot but they were all already on the site.

|John Beardsley||RE: Ray Carlton Beardsley name confusion|
You and I are 8th cousins, John C. Beardsley is our common ancestor.
As far Ray is concerned, is interesting that on the two documents found that Ray signed himself, his WW1 and WW2 draft registration cards, he used both versions, "Carleton Ray" for WW1 and "Ray Carleton" for WW2.
His son Robert listed his name as "Carleton Ray" on the application for a military marker for his grave. He is listed as "Carleton Beardslee" in the 1900 & 1910 census records, but "Ray Carleton" afterwards.
Since the birth certificate has "Ray C." I think that trumps everything else though.
