Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been into genealogy online since 2001, but had always had an interest before all these technological advances. Now that most of my ancestors are 'sourced' at, I'm attempting to finish each member with a pictorial record of their final resting place. I thoroughly enjoy this jigsaw-puzzle called family tree making and would love it if I could help anyone else out in their genealogical journey.

Currently (fall '11 - now), I'm in the process of photo-documenting a couple of the local cemeteries in El Dorado County. All of the internments I enter for these I'm no relation to. If you want me to transfer management, I'm willing to do so. Just ask :)

I am extremely passionate about what I do for Find A Grave. Although, merely a volunteer, the end results are so much more gratifying. Connecting loved ones with those looking for them is the most rewarding for me.

With the many gold country pioneer cemeteries I've plodded through in recent years, it just makes me want to identify each plot even more and with accuracy.

I'll have to say that one of the cemeteries that made my jaw drop in beauty was Forest Lawn, Glendale. I've coined it "city of the dead" because its population is over 10,000... five of which are my ancestors.

Hi Lori!!!
Thank you so much for the transfer! I so appreciate it. No worries on the Change. I'll do it.

Mary Prodger
Most of the patients were buried on the hospital grounds, but a few were sent elsewhere. (Sometimes noted as such, but like Mary, often not.) Without rechecking for exact dates, her troubles may have started around the time of her husband's death. Their son Charles would have been a young teenager at the time. He seems to have made his way into adulthood with some success. It was almost certainly him who arranged for her burial next to Joseph. Sadly, it seems Charles' wife died young and to my knowledge, this Prodger line ended with him.

I'm trying to take the commitment records (deaths) through about 1872. I do it for my maternal grandmother who spend a great many years in a Missouri State Asylum. She was released to a nursing home in late life and it's a comfort knowing she died and was buried near kin.

Thank you for updating Mary's memorial, I'm glad she was buried by Joseph in El Dorado Co. The gravesites at the asylum were not handled respectfully in the early to mid 1900's.

Mary Prodger
I just completed a memorial I made for Mary Prodger. After doing a search for the surname Prodger, I found that it is a duplicate to yours. What I propose is that all her bio information be copied and pasted into your memorial. (Has slight information on her husband but quite a bit on her son.)

Can do it through the Edit feature but thought I'd contact you first.

Thank you!
Hi Lori ~ Thank you so much for your kindness.

Thanks to you also. I'm always running into your name "Lori T". This is my passion, as I'm certain it is yours as well.

I'm in El Dorado County too. Isn't all this rain we're getting lovely! ~ Jo

RE: Don Cook
Lori - thanks for the reply. Don's real name was Julius Don Juan Cook, but he went by Don. He would have been around 20 when he died. They lived south of Placerville so I am not sure this is him, as it seems far from his home. But you never know.

hi - by chance could that be 1888? Looking for a Don Cook who died around that time. Thanks
