Bio and Links
Bio Photo i'm a retired prosecutor from phoenix who relocated to be closer to my children and grandchildren. i love being where i can share their lives.

i live on a small lake with a preserve area (a nicer term for "swamp") between me and the lake. it's gorgeous. we have our own eagles, other birds, deer, and other wildlife that i've grown very fond of.

as a hobby, i collect and restore family photographs, mostly antiques. i don't have a tangible collection; rather, my collection is digital--making the photographs easy to share. findagrave has given me an outlet to combine our family genealogy with my collection of photographs, preserving information for future generations.

my brother is jack sheldon, jr.; he is really into genealogy; i'm more interested in photographs and recording history. our interests compliment each other.

if i have any errors on any of my postings, please let me know; if anyone would rather post for a family member, please let me know and i will transfer to you any family memorials i have posted; anyone may use my photos for family/genealogy purposes only. please give credit for the photographs to D. Wilkes. If for monetary or other gain of any kind, please seek permission.

Charles Mattson #15310455
Texas Death Certificate # 00981 reflects Charley John Mattson was born on 11/30/1901 and died on 1/22/1967 in San Benito, Cameron Co., Texas. Place of burial - Mona View Cemetery, Muskegon, Michigan.

You can go on Family Search and enter his name -Charley John Mattson; death date - 1967; death location - San Benito Cameron Co., Texas and pull up the death certificate at no cost.

I am forwarding this information because of the note on FindAGrave regarding birth and death dates of Charles Mattson: "dates are based on best reading." I hope this helps you. I am researching the Fowler family and his wife was Winona Fowler Mattson.

Find A Grave Memorial# 86878037
The above memorial has a St Mary Cemetery photo with your name on it. Usually, memorial managers can "delete" the cemetery photo so it does not take one of 5 picture slots on the memorial. However, I cannot seem to find the remove/delete St Mary Cemetery photo on this memorial although I could on other memorials. Could you try to delete the St Mary Cemetery photo off this memorial since it is your name on it. Not sure if you can either but can't hurt to try.

RE: 16949259 Barbara Mary (Ponyik) Zelenak Horvath

I am a friend of AnaBel's daughter, Maureen (Peck) Carlson. I was helping her daughter, Renee learn more about in how she can find more about her family history. I discovered this weekend, that Renee and I are 11th cousins through her father's side.

Anabel's father link is 16319145 Louis Zelenak
Anabel's mother link is 36750518 Barbara Horvath

These were her biological parents

I don't have an account with Ancestry. I have very little on my Page family line.

Joseph and Marinda Robbins' graves
Hello, there,

You once kindly looked for my ancestors Joseph and Marinda Robbins' grave in Hesperia, Michigan and thought they was buried in unmarked ones, taking photos and adding it to their memorial pages. Another researcher found their gravesites and took photos of their tombstones. Could you please remove your photos from their memorial pages?

Thank you for your time.

Thank you for transferring Jeff. He was a wonderful guy.

It's kind of funny. I was originally from Michigan and moved to Phoenix. We traded places!
