Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in my family since I was 5 years old, but did not start doing family research until 1990. I have been on staff at the Oakland California Family Search Library from 1991 to the present day. After I retired in 2010 I have had lots of time for family research and in searching for my family I have been many places in the United States and to England and the Netherlands across the big "little" pond.
I work with my wife to take pictures and visit cemeteries that she has entered over the years so together we have entered many memorials and pictures.

I'm a native Californian, born in the San Francisco Bay area. I have been married twice and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren.

RE: Thomas George Pavone
I'm happy to help, Bob. I kind of figure if someone makes a request for a picture they might like to see what the stone actually looks like...silly me :-) I'm very careful removing anything covering the stone and use a gentle brush to remove debris. It doesn't take that long and I don't really understand those who don't do it

St Joseph Cemetery-Pavone gravesites
Hi Bob-Josephine and Sam Pavone are buried together. To the side of them is a military marker for Thomas G. Pavone (Feb 22, 1928-July 21, 1969). I took a picture of his headstone too so if you make a memorial page for him let me know and I'll post the pic...Mary

Bob: The first GPS I put in was the park office. I just submitted a change to show the GPS of the Grave Site. Look this up on Google Earth and see the location. Buddy

RE: Vivian Loy Deason
You're welcome Bob. Normally, if we're not related to someone, I offer to transfer the memorial to the person who contributed additional information. I hesitated to make that offer the other day, because I didn't know how T Mammoser was connected to Vivian. I haven't heard any more from T Mammoser, so I'll let you know that a transfer of your cousin is available, if you desire. I'm not real good at expressing myself, so I hope you can make sense of this message :~)

Best wishes,
Paul Hoyt

Vivian Hedgcock Deason
Hi Bob - thank you for the information about Vivian Loy. I have added it to her memorial.

I've received a lot of edits for Vivian in the past few days. Fellow FindAGraver T Mammoser (#47191619) recently provided parental or spousal links (or both). I don't know if you're acquainted with him, but it's evident that you and he share a common interest.

Best wishes,
Paul Hoyt

Thank you for transferring Frank & Maggie Lawson's memorials to Emmadean. I didn't realize she was still active on here.

John Linder Cemetery
Hello I was wondering if there are 2 John Linder's buried in this cemetery. cause I seen a picture that has dates on one of the john but on the main page showing all the internments it had unknown dates for birth and death for the other one. Just wondering so I can clear us some of my genealogy. Thank you for your response.
