RE: Karen Christine Davison Obit
Hello there,
No problem....didn't know it was wrong until I saw the hubby buried beside her and his year of birth.

At least we got to meet and had a good time ! ! :) :)

Let me know if you find other stuff I can use... :) :)

Memorial# 33252406 Joshua McCloud
Thanks for the memorial of Joshua McCloud. I have been searching for information on one of his daughters, 'Lulu,' b. 1862 CA, I finally have traced her heritage back to Joshua and Sarah. To see this Obit posted on his memorial is just the best. THANK YOU!

Karen Christine Davison Obit
Her hubby was born Sep 1911; so Karen was probably born somewhere near that year....

The Fresno Karen was age 47 in 2015, giving a birth year of 1968.

So, I really do think we have 2 separate people here.


I took the obit off the memorial, but kept a copy... :) :)

RE: Karen Christine Davison Obit
Well, I need to remove that obit from THIS Karen's memorial. Sorry....
This Karen Christine Davison was married to Carroll Milton Davison and she is buried in Whittier CA at Rose Hills Memorial Park with her husband and his mother....all 3 side by side burials.

The Fresno Karen is not the same person as on my memorial. I just a moment ago found info to support that.

If you think differently, let me know what to research further on this.

I have Carroll, the husband on 1920, 1930 and 1940 census with his birth family. His parents divorced, so the 1930 & 1940 shows him in his mother's household.

For the burial records, I obtained them from the Cemetery online burial database. So those 3, Davison burials, including Karen are confirmed burials in this cemetery here in Whittier CA.

Okay, on this? :) :)

Do you have any information on a sister of Winnie, Francis or Frances Lee Bowman - Brooks. I got the surname of Brooks from the obituary of Winnie Mae.

I found a Frances(is) Brooks who was born on September 19, 1919 and died in January 1982, but cannot verify if that was the correct Frances. I have been unable to find a marriage certificate.

Francis married my dad, Cleo Pershing Goldsmith, on March 14, 1936 in Ardmore, Carter County, Oklahoma. They had a son, Cleo Percy Goldsmith, who was born and died on May 8, 1937 in Merced, CA. I have not been able to find a divorce certificate.

I cannot find anything on findagrave.

I am writing only because it appears you may have known some of the family. Thank you so very much.

Karen Christine Davison Obit
Hi Linda! :)
Thank you so much for the obituary for Karen...I have updated her memorial with the information and will also do a little searching to see what else is out there.....

I am a little concerned, though, the obit says that a Crematory handled her arrangements. And yet, the local cemetery where I live definitely has a burial record for her. I live in So. California and Fresno is more in "Central" maybe there is other info out there to be considered.

Will leave the memorial with the added obit for now, and if I find anything that sheds light on this person, place of death and burial, I will let you know.

Also, if you want a transfer, I'll be happy to do so.

Thanks again for the info...

Thank you for your assistance and contributions.

Yes, the picture of Phillip Haddix is a blessing considering I have no pictures of my great grandfather and none of my distant relatives dating back 300 years.

Photos of that nature are the discovery of a lifetime.

Thanks again.
