Bio and Links
Bio Photo This is a fun and interesting hobby for me, as well as a great way to perform a meaningful community service to others. Someday I hope to have more free time to devote to it.

In fairness to those who may have closer ties to a memorial, please read the Transfer Guidelines prior to requesting a transfer. I will make exceptions if I am personally doing work for you. You do not need to "manage" every memorial that is part of your family tree. Remember that this site is for locating burials, not building a tree. There are other websites that are more suitable for that purpose. I will be happy to make any links and corrections. PLEASE use the SAC feature ("Edit" tab). Please do not ask me to do links to any "Burial Unknown". Do your homework, first. Please feel free to add photos where appropriate, as you do not need to manage the memorial to add photos.

I will not cut and paste raw data from census records, death indices, etc. A nicely written bio is preferable.

Please consider using the "virtual cemetery" feature on this site to keep track of relations.

Since March 2013 I have taken over management of memorials in Inglewood Park Cemetery from Chris Mills. Please continue to send suggestions for corrections using the "Edit" tab and I will get to them as soon as I can.

Please have your messages enabled if you want to correspond with me. I will not use my personal e-mail on this site. If you ask for a transfer but your messages have been disabled, I will delete your request.

Bartletts Inglewood burials
Dear B.J.
Thank You for your help, and may I wish you a very Merry Christmas too.
All the burials listed in Inglewood (Mignonette Plot-Lot 230-B) are relatives of mine I listed their relation to each other previously. Bartlett's are my maternal great grandparents. Mamie Bartlett Foster my great aunt, Leroy her husband. Patricia Fawcett is my mothers 1st cousin, daughter of her aunt Bessie Bartlett Fawcett.(Mrs. Maurice Fawcett) Patricia was 8 years old when she died in March of 1932 (born abt.1924).
Sincerely, Arthur Anson

Milton and Mayme Freeland
Thank you for the pictures of the gravestones of Milton and Mayme Freeland in the Inglewood cemetery. I noticed that there was a stone next to them, did you happen to notice the name as I am trying to locate more of Milton's family and neither of them were in "find a grave" before I placed them there based on their obituaries, so his siblings living in the same area were not in find a grave either. Just wondered if you noticed the names next to them. Thanks anyway for your help.

RE: David and Anna Bartlett
Dear B.J.,
I notified Inglewood park Cemetery about the markers for the Bartlett's (my grt. grand parents)The switchboard operator sent a worker to check, but none was found. Although their son in-law Leroy Foster was marked at this site, the records show five burials there (all cremains I believe).
Those interred there were:
1. David Bartlett- interred March 7,1931
2. Patricia Helen Fawcett- interred March 26,1932 (grand daughter)
3. Annabell Anderson Bartlett- interred October 24,1942
4. Leroy Foster- interred May 23,1956 (son-inlaw)
5. Mary Alice (Mamie)Bartlett Foster- interred August 20,1964 (daughter)
Thank You for your help,it is good to know there are people like you who also care about ancestry.
I feel that these graves were marked but maybe time has claimed them.
Once again, Thank You.
Sincerely, Arthur Anson

RE: Alberta and Leroy Huntsinger/Huntzinger
Thanks for your work in checking for me. Distant relatives of mine had stated they were buried there, so I created them to see if it was true. I changed them to unknown for 30 days and will do some research.

Thank you!

RE: Madge Lucas O'Dowd
Thanks for mentioning that. I thought I noticed that as I sent it. I should have changed it.

George M Rankin vs George E Rankin
Unfortunately he is not the right George Rankin. Mine was on the 1920 and 1930 census in MO. He was born in 1913 in Kansas to maiden name HOPKIN no "s". The only other George E Rankin I found was born in NE and died in IL. I actually started a family tree for most of the "George Rankin" men born anywhere near 1913 and found all went to different families, no ours. There is one in Hutchinson, KS too and yep wrong one.
I ordered the death certificates of both the mother and grandmother to confirm the spelling and location. They confirmed he was in CA same address as his mother when she died, however he was not on the 1940 census. Neither was his wife. He married when he was 17 yrs old per the 1930 census and was living with his mother and step father. Just a mystery. I think I found his wife in CO and it said she was divorced. I also searched the cemeteries and marriage records around Petit MO thinking there might have been a baby that died. No luck. Thanks for your help. I will order the death certificate, but don't think even with the draft during WW2 that they would get by fudging 5 years on his age. Sue
