Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am greatful for the contributions of all findagrave members, and welcome anyone to make use of the information and photos in the memorials I have created or manage.

If you use anything from my memorials, please include a reference to the memorial number. I am not looking for recognition, but sources increase of the value of that information for yourself and others.

I am researching many family lines, including Aldridge/Oldridge, Allen, Anderson, Berglund, Borders, Chase, Crawford, Converse, Dobson, Hardenbergh, Howe, Kenyon, Lapham, Reynolds, Vermillion, and Wood.

If anyne has has information, questions or corrections I would love to hear from you!

Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest
Perhaps neglected but not alone
The name and dates are chiseled out
On polished marble stone

It reaches out to all who care
Yet it's too late for us to mourn
You did not know we would exist
And though you died we were born

So each of us are part of you
In flesh and blood and bone
Our hearts contract and beat a pulse
Not entirely of our own

Dear ancestor, the life you filled
Many years long ago
Spreads out among those you left
Who would have loved you so

I wonder as you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday we'd find this spot
And come to visit you

(Original Author: Walter Butler Palmer,
in 1906, and later revised by unknown)

Robert De Koker transfer
You can transfer it to his daughter when you get her Contributor number. Many people are confused by the message that appears when transferring. It's something like "are you sure you want to transfer--this action can't be undone..." What it means is that once I transfer to someone, I cannot transfer back to myself or to someone else. But the memorial manager always has the option of transferring it to whomever he or she wants.

I transferred the memorials for Marcella & Henry Bialek so you can edit them as you wish, since I'm not related. I got the names from a list posted on-line and did some further research in Ancestry & CA Death Index. I live in Aliso Viejo, CA.

Thank you for welcoming me Dave!!
I was so happy to stumble upon Find A Grave one day, looking for my friends death date. I love being able to help people out by photographing markers.
I am very happy to be able to help!

RE: Cochran's
Sorry Dave,
I am not related. I have been listing and taking photos of this cemetery for awhile. Must have missed the photos. I have posted them now.

RE: Happy 6th Year Anniversary with Find A Grave!

Thanks for your kind words.

The photo was one of my mother's favorite picture of me.

RE: William Crawford
Hi: I live near Hampton and work there. Will see what I can do as winter weather is coming. I do have a couple of other Crawford's that I will post in the next day or two. May or may not be related.
