I've been doing genealogy for well over 40 years. Since my retirement, I've finally had the time to start participating more in Findagrave. I live in the Sacramento area, California. One person in my messages below scolded me for not entering more memorials. Well, for one, I don't want to be a memorial hog (ahem) running amok just typing names and dates, and secondly, here in the Sacramento area, many of the cemeteries are very well photographed and enumerated, so while I am still a volunteer photographer (although the requests are few and far between) I have set my sights on expanding various FAG memorials - check out Walter J. Burwell in my memorials. Mr. Burwell came to El Dorado County in 1849 in the height of Gold Fever. He was Sheriff of El Dorado County and died in 1864 in Placerville, El Dorado County, CA. He is buried in the Old Placerville Cemetery where sadly, many of the gravestones are disappearing with age and wear. His memorial was set up by LIN, who generously transferred it to me when I managed to piece together a bio on Mr. Burwell. I couldn't see him just lying there without some recognition beyond a name and a date. I love doing this. So, when possible, I like to add bios and add information on my ancestors graves and other graves that tickle my fancy. And, no I don't have to manage them.
PLEASE use any photos I have posted on FAG. You do not have to ask.
Sarah Harmony Hello, I also took more photos oh Sarah's headstone. There is an infant listed but I was having a hard time reading it. I have more photos if you would like them. I'm going to see if I can play with the photo to make the writing appear.
RE: Patrick Smith @ Lakeside Memorial Hi Connie, I would like to request use of your picture published on Patrick Smith. It's a virtual graveside I contributed to findagrave that you contributed the photo on at my request. I have no means to make it into your area and have no way of taking my own picture at the present time. If I could please get your approval I will copy it and use it for my own personal use. Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to hearing back from you at your earliest convenience. Be well and thank you again.
RE: Archie Roberts Thank you for your help. I spoke to my mother and she said there was never a large headstone only a small marker. My other question is do they have any info on my mom's sister? same cemetery, Betty Jane Roberts I think these dates are correct. Born Jan 16, 1941 to April 10, 1941 age 2 1/2 mths. Born in Amador County, Ca. death may be listed as Sacramento, Ca. Mom says when you go in the gate she is to the right, what may be called the old cemetery. Parents are Lee Roberts & Vida Price. Thanks
