Out of love. I have a mission to see that every one in Ripon Cemetery has a memorial. I am working on a list I received from the Cemetery that has the grave numbers and with Archives.com to see if I can put Family's together. I love bringing family's together....And helping future genealogists. If I find your family member and made a memorial, and you want to add a picture or two, I would be happy to do it for you. Please contact me....|
If you have an addition, want a transfer, make family links or corrections, please, please, please use the EDIT button. The EDIT is on the top of the memorial of each person. On the right hand side.... It may be a pain for you to use, but it certainly helps those of us who get several requests a day to add information to memorials. It takes us straight to the memorial without having to search for it, especially when there is just a name given with no memorial number.PROCEDURES FOR LINKS, ADDING OR CHANGING INFO, TRANSFERS:
Please do not be offended, but for a number of reasons, including the volume of requests, I transfer memorials in accordance with Find A Grave's published guidelines. If you request a transfer, please be sure to include your relationship to the person who is the subject of the memorial. I cannot respond to transfer requests for all memorials with the same surname in a cemetery or to requests for a large number of memorials with the same surname.
If there are entries which need to be linked, please send the info to me via the correction/EDIT option or Suggest a Change (SAC) in the upper right corner and I will add the links. Also, if you would like me to add information to a memorial, please forward the relevant info via the SAC option for the quickest response.
If there is information in a memorial concerning a living person which you would like removed, please send me a request via the SAC option.
PLEASE DO NOT send transfer requests, relationship links or additional information for memorials via the public messages option. PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB LOCATED IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE MEMORIAL.
OBITUARIES: Find A Grave has updated its policy concerning the use of obituaries in memorials (See: "Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?" under the Frequently Asked Questions section). If you send a request asking that an obituary be added, please be sure to confirm in your message that you have complied with the policy or I will not be able to add it.
Many thanks for the kind notes, thank yous, flowers and tokens which are left on the memorials. It is rewarding to know that my work has helped someone.

Thanks for the transfer AND for the obit! My mom and dad kept in touch with Verna and Al for many years, somewhere in my piles of paper I have some letters from her! I'm mad at myself for not contacting her directly in her later years to get information.

Thanks for catching what must have been a senior moment! I paid for my sins by doing some research and several links. Thanks!

Thank you for the work you do. I do not live close by so could not take the pictures myself, plus I am lacking computer skills.
THANK YOU so very much Josephine, Im excited to add some more goodies to their memorial. Have a Lovely day! Jodi

|Lee Merriman||RE: Audrey White|
Thank you Josephine. Yes, please transfer Keith White's memorial to me. I will do some research and add info for him. I know he grew up here in Minnesota so I should have an easier time doing research. I know my old neighbor grew up with him. Thanks again for what you have done. I had no idea how I was going to get to California to get the cemetery and plot information. I last visited my aunt Audrey back in the '80's when my father was still alive. Haven't been to California since.

No problem, I just hope you are ok. I'll look into this and I should be able to put the pictures back so don't worry. Take care of yourself, and thanks for doing such great work at Ripon cemetery! My Melton's (Jesse) had a large farm in Ripon along the river, and there are some streets named after his family, such as Melton, Hutchinson and some other family names in that area across from the cemetery area near highway 99, by Caswell State Park. Thanks Josephine!

Just starting to search DeVee.
I was told years ago that my grandparents were buried at the Ripon cemetary but when I contacted them years ago they did not have any information for me.
Your listing is correct in that Monroe DeVee and Maud DeVee were married - they were my grandfather and grandmother.
|Kat B||RE: Melton , Melton ?|
here's a bio Josephine, if you want to cut and paste it in Find A Grave.
Jesse Carter Melton was born Sept. 7, 1821 in Alabama. He moved to Sangamon County, Illinois when just a boy, going from there to Mercer County, Illinois where he married his first wife, Mary Christina Harding. Together they had two children, Alonzo born July 1847, (his sons are Abner, Levi and Leo buried at Ripon Cemetery); and daughter Sarah Christina born Jan. 1, 1849 who married Jack Trimble. His first wife Mary died at Sarah Christina's birth.
He later remarried to Sarah Melvina Nutt on April 24, 1851. They were married in Polk County, Iowa and went to Illinois taking Alonzo with them. Sarah Christina was left with her grandmother and aunt, who raised her until she was sixteen years old, when her father went and brought her to Monona County, Iowa where she was married to Jack Trimble. Sarah Melvina Nutt was the daughter of Elias Nutt and Mary Taliaferro. Her parents moved to Vigo County, Indiana and resided there until she was fourteen years, and then went to Polk County, Iowa where she met Jesse. She was born Dec. 16, 1834 in Clermont County, Ohio and died Nov. 21, 1920 in Stanislaus County and is buried at Ripon Cemetery. Jesse and Sarah had the following children:
1. Francis Marion, born May 31, 1852 in Polk County, Iowa, died Nov. 16, 1910. Francis is buried at Ripon Cemetery.
2. Mary Jane Melton, born Feb. 6, 1854 in Polk County, Iowa, died June 13, 1936 at Modesto. Married John Hoffman who died June 16, 1899 from a wagon accident, and was buried at Ripon Cemetery initially, until they put Highway 99 through, then he was moved to Park View Cemetery near Manteca close to Highway 99, as well as their children who had died. They had the following children: William Francis, Alva Eugene (known as Uncle Gene), Clara Glendora (known as Glennie), Jessie Alice (died as an infant), Sara Effie, and Bertha Leah (who married Calvin Callander).

He and Mary had the following children, Oscar Tate, Elsie, Francis M. who died in 1890 at age 12, and Jessie (a daughter who died Sept. 4, 1883 at age 4 days who is buried at Ripon Cemetery, however her name appears on Robert and Mary's headstone as a memorial in Stockton Rural Cemetery, unclear if she was later buried there, or just put on the headstone in memory)
