Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is a fun and interesting hobby for me, as well as a great way to perform a meaningful community service to others. Someday I hope to have more free time to devote to it. Please get locations before requesting photos from Inglewood Park Cemetery. If the memorial only has a plot name (i.e., "Fairhaven") you will need to ask for the lot number. The office staff are very helpful.

In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, please read the Transfer Guidelines prior to requesting a transfer. I will make exceptions if I am personally doing work for you. You do not need to "manage" every memorial that is part of your family tree. Remember that this site is for locating burials, not building a tree. There are other websites that are more suitable for that purpose. I will be happy to make any links and corrections. PLEASE use the SAC feature ("Edit" tab). Please do not ask me to do links to any "Burial Unknown". Do your homework, first. FIND A GRAVE ADMINISTRATORS SUPPORT THIS POLICY. Please feel free to add photos where appropriate, as you do not need to manage the memorial to add photos.

I will not cut and paste raw data from census records, death indices, etc. A nicely written bio is preferable.

Since March 2013 I have taken over management of memorials in Inglewood Park Cemetery from Chris Mills. Please continue to send suggestions for corrections using the "Edit" tab and I will get to them as soon as I can.

Thank you so much for the photo of their marker. Bud was my 1st cousin once removed and I have so many fond memories of him and his family. This is much appreciated.

RE: John Yoshimura
Confirmed Joy is the granddaughter.

RE: John Yoshimura
Thank you for the info. Yes John and Mary were husband and wife, they were married June 30, 1940 according to their marriage cert. For some reason he changed his surname to hers in 1955. I can only think because her parents had no male heirs, but that is an assumption on my part. As to Joy she must be a granddaughter as her mothers maiden name is Koga.

Thank you so very much for the photo. That is a most interesting style of urn and display. I have never seen anything like that before.

RE: Lilla Carstens
By doing a search at for harry carstens, birthplace Iowa, birth year between 1897-1899, I found Harry and Lilla's marriage record:

With Hans and Ella being his parents' name, I was able to find his birth record, born 5 Feb 1898 and his middle name is Lennard:

I'll put in an edit request with this information.
