Bio Photo Geraldine Patterson Humes

30 Oct 2014 - Life is going pretty well and with the new edit feature, I've been keeping up pretty well. Thanks for your patience the last two or so years.

Wife, Mother of 3 Sons. Grandmother to 8.
Live in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, California. Glad to help out with photos or genealogy if I have time available. I have most if not all the photos in a higher quality. IF YOU WANT A HIGHER QUALITY PHOTO, LET ME KNOW AND I'LL ARRANGE FOR YOU TO GET ONE.

If you want me to add information on someone I posted, let me know. I create memorials from photos taken in local cemeteries (or where I travel) and from obituaries (some even across the country). If I have made a mistake or something needs correcting please let me know. I try to add every thing in the correct way, but I'm sure sometimes I make a mistake. If you E-Mail me make sure you put FindAGrave in the subject line or it might get deleted. Hopefully one day a family member will see a loved one I entered listed here on Find A Grave. E-mail me and let me know if you do. I've been thrilled when I find a memorial for a relative and so happy when someone thanks me for creating a memorial.

To avoid duplications, send me info to add or if you are a direct descendant or other close relative, ask me to transfer management to you. Gerry

Thank you for the time and effort you put forth in getting Robert's photo for me. May I also get your permission to include the photo in my family tree.

Can you please transfer my Gillooly/Gillooley
Gillula/Gilula/Gillulah /Gilhula/Gilhuly/Gilhuley
Gillhuly/Gillhuley/Gilhooly/Gilhooley/Gillhooley families 2 me.

Many of my family that was forced out of Ireland and emigrated were separated and had changed to the spellings of their names. some were British Gun Runners, some were trying to make it out alive from the Potato Blight and keep their families alive.

Maria Claire Serao and J Manning Johnson
Thanks so much for the info on these two! J Manning was the son of my great grandfather's sister Matilda and it was so nice to find J Manning especially even though I didn't know them it's nice to have some closure on this branch of the family as I'd searched for quite a long time to find out what happened to Manning. Happy New Year!

Request for permission to use photos
Hello again...

I'm using and Family Tree Maker to work on my genealogy and would like your permission to use your photos found on

For example, a photo on this memorial is one I'd like to use:

I expect there will be others that I find later. I will give you (via your FindAGrave username) and FindAGrave credit.

RE: John Patterson Memorial# 46199805
Gerry, I found a family tree on Ancestry (Solum Family Tree) that lists John Henry Patterson, born 30 Dec 1855 in Boone Co.,Mo. and died 18 Sept 1937 in San Antonio Texas. He married Bessie Jordan. If you don't have an Ancesry account, you can get a free 7 day access I think they still offer that. His father, Jefferson Davis Patterson.

Found this John and Dina (buried at Golden Pond) on the census......says he was born in Tennessee and was working for a man named York. Wife Dina. No children listed.

RE: John Patterson Memorial# 46199805
Gerry, unfortunately the book does not list Greenup Patterson's children, other than Jefferson, and does not mention a brother that came to Stonewall County, either. It says that Greeup had 11 children, and brought them to Hays County from Joplin, Missouri in 1871. Perhaps the son John might not have survived to adulthood.
Jefferson D. Patterson was the fourth son., and as you probably know, had only two children, Jeff Jr (married Vada Rash) and Annie who died unmarried I think.
Jeff Davis Patterson SR. married Mittie Lee Ward.
I am sorry that I couldn't help more.
