Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Brian B. Shemwell I am a researcher from Boise, Idaho. I have been doing my family genealogy since Sept. 2008. Any photo that I have added is not to be taken without my permission. This is because some of them are not my photos, and I have permission from others to put them here and only here.
I do also go to local antique shops and find photo's with names of the people in the photo, I do try my hardest to locate where the photo belongs and find their home. If you come across a photo that I have posted on a memorial and I have no relation, please know I am looking for a home for photo and please message me.

Please visit the memorials of the people that mean most to me.

RE: Orville Arvin
At this time I d not believe that he did. I have one stone that I cannot read at all. when I go back I will check it out thoroughly. I do notice that Orville was NOT included in the original cemetery book that was compiled back in the late 60's early 70's. This leads to me believe that there is NO marker at all for him and no record of where he may be buried. =(

RE: Orville Arvin
No, I grew up in the neighborhood and the church. I photographed the cemetery several years ago, so I am adding my pictures and info to these memorials.

Another good one! This is the second today where I have found where they are buried. I've never been the owner of an Unknown burial where they need to be merged. I'll write to and request that action. Thanks!! I'll get back to you on the other one soon. My email is,

I don't have another spouse for Virginia P Baker. I don't have a William T Baker in my database.
I don't have siblings for Margaret Ann Byrns either. I'll work on the first issue (do have hints) and maybe you can help me out with the first two. I need to know who "she" is.

RE: Sarah J Breshears
When you are introducing the topic, you say we all have her as Virginia P, etc., then you say "but she had". Who is she? Still reading.

Brian, Good catch! I doubt I would have ever seen that. I have linked them. It makes me sad that shortly after they buried her they left for Idaho never to return to that spot again. At least I think we found her parents. As you know, I like to do. I did try to figure it out before but you found the proof. Thanks so much.

I need some help with the green family. I have no proof of Issac Flatty Green being the father of Jermiah IV. Any thoughts or directions.

Thanks Wayne fuller

RE: Shamwell
I actually have not too much information on either of them, was just doing a family history for my mom. Robert is my mom's uncle (her mom's brother) I think Henry is her great grandfather. I never met or knew anyone on my mother's side of the family.
