Bio and Links
I am interested in Mare Island Cemetery entries only. It is Solano County, Vallejo, CA. Most contributors for this cemetery have transferred management over to me to make corrections, additions, deletions easier.

Oceana Irwin
Thank you for posting the memorial. She married my g-g-g uncle Rear Adm John Irwin who is now resting in Arlington National Cemetery. Oceana continued to live in the bay area after John's death in 1901. He spent a good part of his career at Mare Island and their daughter Louisa Irwin worked at Mare Island. I have sent some edits for Oceana and appreciate your attention. Thank you.

RE: E. Davis
That's strange, you should be able to delete the entry. Since I am no longer the keeper of the entry, it wont let me directly edit or delete the memorial.

I know that findagrave has had a problem in the past with contributors who have asked for transfers only to delete the entry and add their own, so it is possible that administration removed the delete option on transferred memorials to stop that practice. You may have to email them and ask to have the entries merged or one of them deleted.

Best wishes,
Gerald :)

RE: Mare IsIand Cemetery
Hi Joyce,

I just finished transferring all the entries that I had for Mare Island Cemetery to you. You should be able to correct, update, or delete as needed.

Best wishes,
Gerald :)

Mare IsIand Cemetery

Thank you for taking the time to write me. In regards to E. Davis, unfortunately it was a few years ago when I photographed the cemetery and I no longer have my records from then. The best I can say to pinpoint where he was is that I was photographing the markers on the left side of the cemetery from the entrance. While I'm pretty sure that the marker lists Davis as his last name, the first initial was so badly worn that E. was my best guess as to what it said.

I would be happy to transfer the memorials I have for Mare Island to you as I'm a believer that the best person to maintain a memorial is the person who has the most information. Due to an increased workload, I'm not on findagrave as often as I once was but as time permits, I'll begin transferring the entries to you.

Best wishes,
Gerald :)
