|Thanks to a lady named Annette and the photo she placed on Find A Grave, I was able to break through a brick wall in my quest to document the family tree. Since then I've placed a number of requests. I am very grateful to the folks who took pictures and filled those requests.|
I pretty much limit myself to taking pictures in the San Francisco National Cemetery in the Presidio of San Francisco. It's an absolutely beautiful place with lawn that would make any gardener envious and with breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay.
If there is anything I put up on this web site that needs correcting or that you would like me to remove, please let me know. If you would like me to transfer a memorial to you, please let me know. Be sure you are logged in and then use the edit tab. With the exception of my own family's memorials, I would be happy to make the transfer.
Through Find A Grave I've been privileged to come in contact with some really wonderful people. This is a team effort and it is amazing how this database has grown. It is fun, even though it can occasionally be awkward when I tell someone I take tombstone pictures. :-) There have been many kind e-mails and public messages. While it is always nice to get a pat on the back, that is not why I do it. I do it in the hopes that what I do might help others as much as the work of others has helped me. Over the years there have been a few disagreements, very few. With an exchange of private e-mails disagreements usually get worked out. That is part of the teamwork. But I find public messages that are not polite to be uncalled for. I was raised to believe that you praise in public and criticize in private.

Yes, I had come across this a while back, but had forgotten most of it~ Wow... pretty proud! I have a picture of the "boys" about a year before Bart passed~ (Father went by Bart, son by Joe~ but both Joseph Bartholomew, given.) Some of our fun family trivia is that Bart's uncle (his father's brother) was the Bishop of Kalil in Ireland, and the very same reason the father and several brothers left Ireland~ to avoid a life of the cloth. ;) Bart's mother and father were dear friends of the "Frozen Priest" of the North and his 2 eldest sisters,became "Sisters" so I think they all received extra Catholic blessings from every angle. ;) A little prayer did both father and son well. teehee
Thanks for the link~ it was great to freshen my memory. ;)

Thanks, Carol! I'll ask Jerry Huffman if he has an obituary on him. Jerry's access to obit. info. has helped me find more than one grave location before. All the best, JD
Thanks, Carol, they might not be there. Might the nationwide gravelocator have info that's not available online? Thanks, JD

Thanks for adding my great-uncle's Findagrave record! I'd like to manage his memorial and set up a biography on him. Would you please transfer the management to me. Thanks so much!

Thank you for the info on the TWO sons both named Troup Miller, Jr.
I am very happy to put a footnote onto the memorial.
|Larry White||Alfred Bigelow Flynn|
The info comes from the Carew & English funeral home records database on Ancestry. I have no further information.

You are correct - I had her linked to the wrong John. Thanks so much for catching it.
|Cathy Combs||Tom Baxter|
Thank you Carol! I can't wait to show this to his (last remaining living) brother.
You're an angel!

Carol - just read your message about the headstone pic you added and I totally agree that this is Mira. Actually I've went further and was able to find more about her family and have or am in the process of having some of them connected. Thanks so much for all your help...
|Rick Lambert||RE: Lewis Jay Leland # 62572666|
Hi Carol - I can't see anything on the stone to indicate it is a cenotaph. That came from a note in the Benton County Cemetery Listings book. I magnified the photo and was able to read all of it. The actual dates are born: July 7, 1868, died: February 27, 1899. So the death dates on your memorial and the one created by Christa differ from the stone. The emblem at the top of the stone is Woodsmen of the World. The stone indicates he died in the Philippines. Hope this helps. Rick
