Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am primarily working on KLUKKERT's - starting in Grafschaft Bentheim, Germany and with the first American Berend Klukkert who came over to America in about 1868 eventually settling in the Shasta County area of California. I am following all the KLUKKERTs in both Germany, Holland and America. I hope to put it all together in a book by 2013.

I also am working on the surname ORDWAY. I am following several different of those lines back to it's shared English Ordway roots.


Please feel free to use my photographs, obituaries and data for your own genealogical use. I am open to corrections and editing and if you are closer family than me to someone and want their grave, just ask. I have sometimes gotten carried away and entered siblings or parents generations distant and they may not be mine - but I have entered and taken the photo so that they are at least up here for family to find.

Thanks to everyone out there who has helped me, and been so generous and kind. I hope I can pass that on to others. Thanks.
Chris in California

RE: Shasta County History
Nice of you to say. Remembering the county's pioneers and connecting their families on this forum is very rewarding. ~Forestier

Thanks for posting that very interesting piece from the Arizona newspaper to the memorial page for John. Sure helps describe the man even better, and might help another researcher. Thanks for your generosity in sharing. A

Sorry I didn't look around for his wife. A monsoon was blowing and it started to lightening. Message me her name and I will check on my next trip.

I found two other Nichols at the Redding Memorial Cemetery but I couldn't confirm if they were the correct graves you were looking for and the state of the grave stone was very poor/very hard to read. They were Catherine Nichols b. Jan 15 1835, d. Feb 27 1892 and on the opposite side of the same marker, was a W.W. Nichols, b. June 25 1836, d. Dec 29, 1894. The grave stone of Catherine is legible in the picture I took, unfortunately, I don't know if W.W. Nichols is. I'd be happy to email them to you for your review if you'd like.

Thank you for posting the newspaper clipping on the memorial for Eugene Shanahan. Quite a wreck!

RE: Elizabeth Anderson Conard
Thank you so much Christine. These are not my relatives either but I am trying to get this family reconnected in hopes that someone will be able to find and claim their ancestors. I have some more information that I am waiting to receive permission to post. Thanks again for your help.

RE: Graves in Sunset Hills - Corning, CA
Hi Christine,

I finally had to go to Find A Grave to get them to make the updates as I never heard anything from Mary - so frustrating! Hope this helps - good luck!

RE: Sallie Haueisen Eaglesfield
Christine, Sallie isn't related to me. I have photographed her mother's entire "Moon" family in a cemetery here in Eau Claire. Another, non relative and I were trying to link all this prominent Eau Claire family together so as we've located members I've asked for the links. Thanks.

RE: Your Profile rocks!
TYVM Christine and YVW too :-) I'm happy I was able to help. I wondered about Frank Stearns, but I guess it worked out. It's nice to be able to see the grave markers to help with dates.
