Bio and Links
I am Mr. Lyn Iversen, born in 1951. I enjoy family history and locating family graves. There are changes to my profile! My mothers cousin traveled to West Virginia two years ago and found our Bonnifield and Maxwell family graves! Now I know where they are and have pictures of them. My ggg grandfather was Rufus Maxwell and I have letters, pictures and momentos of him and his family from my great grandmother's estate. I found his daughter's grave, my g g grandmother, by simply walking around a cemetery in Hollister, CA. My grandmother passed away at age 105 but she was a wealth of information for me. Ancestry.com helped me find out what happened to my mothers grandfather (last name Peck) and where he had come from. I only wish my grandfather and mother were alive to share the information with. But my uncle, cousin and brothers were very happy! My gg grandfather Taylor Peck is now on find a grave. His family plot is in Santa Rosa, CA. Thanks to new found cousin, David Peck!

Biographical info in the flower area
You left some info in the flower are of the memorials for Roswell & Betsy Phinney. Would you please send an 'edit' with any helpful info and delete that from the flower area. That's not where it goes.

Thank you, Samantha

Arnold Bonnifield Update 2
The photo is up for Mr. Bonnifield. It is a little blurry on the edge so I will try to get a better scan when able.
Never-the-less, enjoy!

Hello Lyn,
I saw your flowers on Mr. Bonnifield's memorial page, and I just wanted to let you know that you should keep an eye on his memorial page for a day or so.

I don't know if you have ever seen it or not, but I am adding information from a county history book and have a picture of your ancestor that I will be adding to his page.

Just wanted to let you know.

Jackson.

LUCKY YOU
Such a wonderful thing to still have your grandmother to ask. I wish I had asked more but I wasn't interested then.
