|Bio and Links|
|I have been fascinated by cemeteries (here, and also in England and France) for many years. My earliest memory of exploring a cemetery was with my parents when I was very young, at Old Shasta, Shasta County, California - had we known to look (and known what names to research) we probably could have found relatives there). I became aware of Find A Grave when I started doing serious research into genealogy and realized that photos of grave stones are an excellent way to clarify names, dates, spellings, and sometimes family relationships.|
I have started trying to repay the debt by taking photos of many grave stones when I visit a cemetery (not just those of people I am researching) and posting them with whatever information I was able to develop. I am happy to have researchers copy my photos for their own use in private research, including the photos I have posted of family members whose graves are recorded on Find A Grave; NO commercial use is permitted.
One last thing - which I hope I am entitled to say, because I do try to give back - and that is, there is little that is quite as frustrating to a genalogical researcher as having relied on posted information, only to realize that it really was a guess. This site is very important for the information it makes so widely available, so a suggestion for those who are working from cemetery records, etc., but don't have photos: it would be very helpful to researchers to know the source of your information, when it is not possible to post a photo or when the posted photo does not include all of the information you are putting into the memorial.
Thanks all, and keep up the really excellent work.

Thank u for letting me know that!
|Adriana||Epperson at Durham Cem Butte County|
Thank you for your additional information and the links to spouses for the two Epperson women at Durham Cemetery. We are always happy to have more tidbits ... it helps the history archives of our small town (which are kept at the local library). I've updated the memorials, and printed out the information for the Epperson file at the Durham branch of the Butte County library. Again, thankyou. Adriana

I found the information on line, but have not been able to find it again. If I come across it I will send it to you. There is an on line list of all of the Civil War vets in the Colusa Cemetery.

Thank you so much for all the photos of the Shellhammers. I really appreciate it! Did you find markers in this same plot for Lucinda, Walter and David Scott? My map shows they are also buried there. I have additional information about them. Carole

|Ruth Ellen Bartels||RE: Rickards graves in Willows, CA|
You're right, there is that possibility of her re-marrying, since she and Woody Rickards divorced 12 years prior to his death and 34 years prior to her death. However, I haven't found any such record, and she appears to have lived her life out in Willows. The SSDI lists here as Ruby Rickards, but I wonder if perhaps she was buried under her maiden name of Jackson. I'll contact the cemetery office next week. Thanks for your help.
