Bio and Links
Bio Photo .I use Familysearch all of the time. Not every detail is accurate but it gives you a jumping off point. I have just been playing around in the Familysearch Family Tree and I have notice that "Stories and Documents" section have familysearch members "Copy/Pasting" from Find A Grave Memorials. A few of them MINE. I like to think I am a story teller though my guys think I am just long winded.
. A LOT of time and energy goes into research and writing the stories on My Memorials. My Family and people who have gotten a hold of me and led me on the trail of their lives so I could tell their story, but they are no relation to me or mine or indirect connection. IF YOU are going to "Copy/Paste" these stories, NOT just mine but Every contributor on this SITE, who puts in the energy and sometimes expense of creating these Memorial pages PLEASE give the Find A Grave MEMORIAL #'s at the very least:::OR SOURCE IT in the Source section.
Please Use the information, that is why I put it out there on Find A Grave, most of it is fully verified, but use at your risk. IF you "Copy/Paste" please give my Memorial # credit so I can smile to my guys, 'some people appreciate my long winded." It is not like we get paid for this research. Please Do not steal our efforts and have it look like yours on Familysearch or Ancestry.

. If you serve your country, in the Military, Police Force, Fire Departments or in the Schools. For what it is worth, you have my gratitude.
. When I fulfill a request, I will get every family member, surounding my original request. If I can catch connecting names, either in the field or in the records, I get those as well. IN family plots I always try to find those within the plot that do not have stones{maybe there was a stone but the GOPHERS got there before me} and forward that info.
THe pic on my bio was a great man who believed in being kind. If someone does something for you you repay them. I have spent my life trying to honor him.
This site those people who have helped me the most: Nancy K, Chantell, Shirleen, Kara and others there is nothing I CAN Do to help them in the way they have helped me. So I try to pay it forward. By finding these burials and everyone in them and trying to track down and link the entire family.
I cannot THANK YOU people enough. So I hope doing for someone I can help, shows how grateful I AM TO YOUR HELP.

History is my Passion. Knowing how my Family Connects is the Cream on top.
As a child, I wanted to time travel backward. Now there are people I want to meet.

Ruth Lee Mousall Wood
Hello again, I do have the records proof of their marriage was in 1619 in Nuneaton England, and also death records for both Edward Wood and Ruth Wood in 1642 Charlestown MA, She was born in 1602. I didn't know how to send you the records when I put in an edit.. I have so many sources and numerous documents to back this up. How do I do that, as pictures, a bio? a memorial? please advise for future reference, and thank you for responding so quickly.
take care
Colleen Flaherty
if you are a member of ancestry and look at the Wahl/Kingsley public tree they are there.
The ONLY source that I see is incorrect is the New England marriages prior to 1700.
Edward and Ruth had a son Edward and a daughter Ruth, maybe thats where the confusion was on that.
For certain her death date needs to reflect 29 Aug, 1642 Charlestown, MA
Have you been to the Family History Library in Salt Lake? just curious

Please disregard the parents links I just supplied for this individual, they are incorrect. His mother's correct memorial # is 149781406. I'm still trying to find his father's memorial.

Only if I don't find the ones you're looking for. I'm going to work on them tomorrow.

RE: Hi friend
I'm so sorry about your Oreo. :( Pets can be just as hard to lose as people. I lost my cocker spaniel Princess four years ago this Halloween. I got her as a puppy when I was five. By the time she turned 12 she was blind in one eye and completely deaf, but still as much of her lovable self as ever. Then she got really sick the end of October 2011, and I knew a few days in advance that we were going to lose her, but I don't think anything could have really prepared me for it. Twelve years seemed too short, but it was her time.

Charley and I stopped by a pet adoption event over the summer just to ooh and ahh over the puppies... there ended up being a black and white spaniel puppy that looked JUST like Princess and I had to hold and pet that one for an extra long time. It was hard not to take her home.

I really do hope the dream involved a guide of some sort. I never really remember my dreams anymore, and this one was one of the more vivid and memorable ones that I was just never able to shake. It's comforting to know someone's out there looking out for me, even if I don't know who they are yet.

You give good advice :)

I hope things are going a little better now.

Take care :)

RE: Froisland
You are so very welcome. I have to tell you that the photos already on the page are as good, if not better, then the ones that I took yesterday. I would recommend leaving them as they are.

If you or any other relative ever has the opportunity to visit the cemetery, it is a beautiful place with phenomenal views of San Francisco and the Bay Area.

Take good care,

Hi friend
One month later and I suddenly remembered to take another look at the Saxtons. I'm sorry it slipped my mind!

Thursday was my grandma's birthday (87!), so I've been thinking about her a lot lately, which lead me to thinking about visiting her at the AF Cemetery, which lead me to Oh! Cemetery! The Saxtons!

I searched and searched and couldn't find anything on Aslone's passing. No death register, no newspaper clippings, nothing... either its been lost or badly transcribed somewhere. But looking at the information we have, I'm pretty sure you're right about Miss Saxton being Aslone. FamilySearch is such a great tool we have. I wish I could be more help on this one! I hate it when the little ones get forgotten. I'm so glad you never forget them.

Wanna hear a random story? I had a weird little frustration over the past few days and I feel the need to share it. Wednesday night I had a dream that I was going through old family photos with an old man I didn't recognize. He pointed to a photo of my dad and said, "Look at his blue eyes... just like his dad!" And when I woke up I thought that's funny... I know for a fact grandpa had brown eyes... all of my dad's older siblings have brown eyes... where did my dad get his blue-grey? So I started searching through all the photos I have trying to find out if my grandma had blue eyes. I don't know why it was so important to me, maybe with it being her birthday, and how sad I was that my memory of her had faded so much. But I searched and searched and was so disappointed that all of the photos I have saved are in black and white. The few colored photos I have were from a sunny day where she was either squinting or wearing sunglasses!

I had basically given up when out of nowhere I remembered a colored photo taken maybe a year or two before she passed away. A copy of it is sitting on my parents' fireplace, and as soon as I thought of it I knew I'd be able to see her eyes. I tracked it down a sure enough, she's wearing a bright turquoise sweater and it brings out the blue in her eyes like none other. My dad somehow got his mom's blue eyes instead of his dad's dark eyes, and I got a variation of my dad's eyes rather than my mom's... it was just something small and special for me to hold on to and I'm glad I finally figured it out.

Anyway, I hope you're doing alright. Looks like the temperature is finally supposed to start dipping into the 70s next week, so no more roasting in the sun... I can feel fall in the air :)

Take care,

It's okay
The "novel" is good.....getting it out is better than trying to forget - I bet Oreo was just like a hyper kid, but also with separation issues.

We left Rose one time in her life, with a neighbor girl she loved, while we went to Disneyland. The girl (25 years old) even stayed at our house, so Rose would not be in a strange place, but she still nearly had a nervous breakdown, thinking we were never coming home - it was so sad & she worried for weeks afterward, would not let me out of her sight!

They say dogs who chew everything, eat their way out of confinement & act up when left, are extra active & have those "separation" issues.

Bless Oreo's big heart, it was probably a heart attack happening - that's what the vet said about that behavior of "circling around" with Rose ...she was trying to get away from the pain - I just HAD to make the decision to let the vet help her go...but with you guys, it was in the middle of the night & you did the best you could to comfort her.

Get out and do some fun things and take care - sorry for your loss - loving too much sucks!
