Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm just some old native Bakersfield (CA) guy who likes poking around in cemeteries finding stuff out about people and sharing it with others. My paternal great grandfather John Minter was the second recorded non-native person born in Kern County after it was formed in 1866. My mother's father JH Dewar founded a local ice cream parlor back in 1909 and it's still going strong.
Seriously, though, I am dedicated to finding out all I can about branches and limbs and twigs and leaves of my family tree. I have been the chosen/designated researcher by various family branches and do all I can to gather and accurately enter all I can find out from those willing to assist in this effort. Any help anybody can lend is much appreciated by me and all of those family members.

I am sorry to say I moved out of the area a few years ago, so I have no access to the records of Hillcrest.

I know other people have called the office and gotten the information they wanted.

Good luck in your research,

Please do transfer request through the edit. It is much easier and you didn't give memorial number. Thanks, Henry

RE: Lena Apple
Yes, John! I did notice that Lena's brother was the informant on her death notice. What I thought amusing was that he indicated her occupation as "spinster". I thought you had to be 40 before you were considered a "spinster", and I sure wouldn't consider it an occupation. LOL- although I have known women in my lifetime who seemed like finding a husband was their occupation.- Sandi

RE: Lena Apple
Hi John! DOB was obtained from Death Certificate. Copy is at

Year of birth is hard to read on death certificate copy(although month and day of birth are clear) but she died July 1904 and I subtracted her age of 37 years, 11 months and 27 days.

Of course, you are never really sure with Death Certificates, since the info is often obtained by family members under stressful times, but her brother- who was also an MD, signed as the informant, so this should be accurate.

Ok Raymond.

Yes mid 50 today. 1" rain Wed and 1-3" snow on Thursday and 40ish on Fri, Rain Sat and snow Sunday. Better then the 10"-18" of snow they said last week for this week.

We will get 1/2 of rain, snow on the grass and nothing.
