Robert Swift is my dad. Thank you for posting his information.
I did not know, until I saw this posting, that they had his middle name spelled incorrectly on his headstone.
Anybody have any idea how I can get this fixed?

|Linda F||RE: Pearl Hedge|
Thank you! I should have looked more carefully. You don't need to post my entire comment, just her parents names would be fine. If you want to include a bio, it can be this (or any segment, but please include the source):
Stanley Earl Hedge was born in 1897 at Banner Mine in Oregon Gulch near Oroville in Butte County, California to William Thomas Ulysses and Emma Irene (Strang) Hedge. In 1919 Stanley’s sister Violet Irene Hedge married William Sherman Jamison, whose parents lived at Weed. When Stanley and Violet were little, their father was a miner, but by 1920, he was a laborer for a lumber mill at Stirling City, Butte County, as were Stanley and his younger brother Melbourne.
Stanley Hedge married Pearl Saunders around 1925. Matilda Pearl Saunders was born at California to John and Anna Margaret “Maggie” (Quay) Saunders. Pearl’s father died before she was eight years old, and her mother was a laundress to support them. Maggie and Pearl lived at Kimshew in Butte County in 1910, and at Chico in 1920.
By 1926 Stanley and Pearl (Saunders) Hedge moved to Weed where she was a teacher at Weed Grammar School and he was a lumberman. Stanley and Pearl lived at No. 8 Shasta Avenue in 1930 when he was a laborer at the lumber yard. Pearl Hedge is listed as having no occupation in the 1930 census, but she was a popular teacher at Weed Grammar School from 1926 until at least 1946. One of her students, Nelba (Ball) Hayes, recalled, "I remember her because she made us learn to save everything. If we had extra space on a
paper, we would practice spelling. This helped me in my adult life." Alford Linville also had her for a teacher. He said, “Pearl Hedge taught me in the third grade. She was a pretty nice teacher, she wasn’t too strict."
Stanley Hedge was a grader on the green chain in 1933 when he earned a nice raise from 401⁄2 to 521⁄2 cents an hour. He still graded lumber in 1935 when he received a raise from 671⁄2 to 721⁄2 cents an hour. Stanley and Pearl (Saunders) Hedge lived at No. 8 Shasta Avenue from 1930 until 1953, probably when he retired.
After their retirement, Pearl and Stanley returned to Butte County, where Pearl (Saunders) Hedge died in 1969, and Stanley Earl Hedge died in 1974.

|candace 400||Thank you!|
I just read the information that you had attached for my father, Wallace Edward Gregory. Thank you so much for your work on this. It is truly appreciated!
|Christa E Cannon||RE: Cantery Headstone in Oroville, Memorial Park Cemetery|
I don't mind if you transfer it to me--you created it, so it's completely up to you. I'm fine either way. :)

|Christa E Cannon||Cantery Headstone in Oroville, Memorial Park Cemetery|
Thank you so much for creating this Find a Grave memorial (# 92922683).
This is my great-grandfather and his 2nd wife. I never met him, and my grandmother had no recollection of him--just things she had heard through the years. I've been able to piece together some information over the past several years, though.
One important bit of info is that "Cantery" is not his name! It's actually Cantey (occasionally spelled Canty).
There is some uncertainty as to his year of birth, with the censuses providing everything from 1877 to 1880. The California Death Index says 1871, but the WWI draft card he filled out says 1874, which seems to fall more in line with his parents' marriage and his siblings' dates of birth.
I can give you more info (place and date of birth, 1st spouse, children, etc.) if you'd like to add it to the memorial.
Thanks again, Steven!

Hello Steven -
I have been researching Thomas A. Benson, whose marker you photographed very clearly! Row 4 #15. He was born on May 10, 1828 in Oddernes, Vest-Agder County, Norway. Norway was part of Denmark until 1814 - seems that memory lingered in many minds. Thomas became a US citizen on AUgust 29, 1864 in San Francisco. He was, over time, a sailor, bartender, cook, porter.
Thanks very much for taking the photo.
Steve Heimerle in San Francisco
