Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in 1938 in Oakland CA and have just moved to Pleasanton CA, which is 25 miles SE. About twelve years ago it got into genealogy and since them my life has not been the same. Just ask Chloe, my wife. To date my greatest feeling of accomplishment is finding one of my 2nd GG mother's memorial page and having a photo placed on it. This occurred in Feb 2010 and with great thanks to Fern Bray.As of the May 2, 2015, I have created 29 memorials all for my wife's or my family members and manage 91 memorials, most of them are direct relatives of my wife or me. Which means that I have had 62 memorials transferred to me by other creators, who I thank. Most come because I have sponsored my ancestor's memorial. THANKS TO ALL OF THE PEOPLE AT FIND OF GRAVE THAT HAVE ASSISTED ME IN THE NEVER ENDING SEARCH. TO EACH ONE, A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU.

Mary (Lewis) Stone 30112904
Hi-I have to apologize about this listing-I made it in error, because there is an earlier listing, for Mary (Lewis) Stone, and when I put her in, I put her in as Mary Penfield, which is probably the reason you were able to find her. I would have normally just deleted my duplicate, but I see that you are now sponsoring her memorial. I would like to just transfer her to you, but like I said, she is a duplicate. I don't know how easy it would be for you to un-sponsor her, but if it is easy to do, then I'd like to delete her. Do you just want me to transfer her to you? Thanks, irma

Douglas,

I noticed on our Grandfather's gravesite, you said he was your fifth ggrandfather, he was my sixth ggrandfather so I think that makes us some sort of cousins? Would love to hear from you. My email is lacie543@yahoo.com.

RE: Bennett Haie Taliaferro
Hello Douglas, looks like we are related. It was coincidence that I happened to be tracing the Taliaferro lineage today to see how far it went on the find a grave site. My 6g grandmother is Elizabeth Thornton, whose mother is Mary Taliaferro. I too grew up in the Bay Area, but haven't lived there since the 1980's.
Anyway, this website is a Godsend, albeit a 'hobby' that I take seriously. For me, geneology started for me when my grandfather sat me down at the age of 16, and drew our family tree on brown wrapping paper that I still have to this day. I promised him and other relatives that I would someday put it all together...not sure then on how and not knowing there would be an internet and this website. It's been fascinating and somewhat addictive, I might say.
Regards,
Randy

RE: Lloyd McCarter
Thank you for your note. There are many wonderful stories that have come my way due to taking photos of the markers in cemeteries. The rewards are great. Thanks. Dottie
