Bio and Links
I was adopted at birth.
I was raised in southern California and raised my family in the same area.
I didn't meet my birth mother until my late 30's and I met my birth father about three years ago.
I live in Texas now and enjoy researching both my adopted and birth families.

I have been interested in genealogy most of my life concentrating on my adopted family. Once I knew my biological family I dedicated even more time to research and finding my roots.
I guess you could call me a little obsessed as it's always fun putting the pieces of this puzzle together and you never know what you will find...

George Martin Johanson
I got pics per your request for George Martin Johanson in Lincoln Memorial Cemetery.
If I put too many pictures let me know and I will make any you don't want on there go bye, bye, ok?
I got kind of carried away having fun researching this guy a bit. He had only what it said on his crypt and nothing else. I found full birth and death dates for him and who his parent's were. His parent's were not added to Find A Grave so I did that and linked George to his parent's pages.
I have mostly seen him wherever I have looked for him as Johansen not Johanson. I would imagine you have seen that yourself in your research.
His tragic death story in the newspaper and his funeral notice both list him as Johansen.
Hah. I must be slipping. I thought his crypt said Johanson on it but it does not, it says Johansen also. I think I got that into my head because the lady who added him to Find A Grave put Johanson on his page which was an ooops on her part. I will tell her to fix that. I got her to correct the dates on his page already.
I have his funeral notice that I could email you if you are interested. I did not want to put too much onto his page since I put so much on it already.

RE: Gifford
Thank you, Missy! I've got a lot more info, but I'm a little slow digging it out:-). You will no doubt hear from me, again. Take care & God Bless. Diane

Hi, Missy! Thank you for sending a link to Eli's mother. Please forward the source of your information and I will be glad to make the link. Also, I noticed the message from BAK about Granville.Cemeteries. The other possibility is that the burial occurred in Union.Grove.Cemetery, which is rural. Many from the village attended church there and were buried there. However, same problem with that cemetery--missing stones. Thank you for sending info!

RE: Granville Cemetery
The Granville Cemetery was not opened until 1863. If you ancestor died in1836, he might have been buried in the old Granville Cemetery for which there are no actual records. The Old Granville Cemetery records on Find A Grave are the best information available, but since most stones are gone, it is impossible to know all the burials for sure. I am sorry I could not be of more assistance.

Edna Brown
Hello! I am about to fulfill your photo request and just wanted you to know that there are a number of family members buried in this lot. The row that Edna is in has:

David Lee Brown (1931-1952)
Walter E. Brown (1907-1979)
Winifred U. Kaylor (1878-1951)
Frank L. Brown (1871-1947) and
Ella T. Brown (1885-1945)

Also, in the row just below where Edna is buried:

Joe N. Brown (1915-2002)
William Dorr Kaylor (1906-1978)
Iona B. Kaylor (1909-1997)
Anna B. Brown (1886-1977) and
Walter E. Brown, Sr. (1881-1954)

I believe the Kaylors must be related, since they are mixed in with the Browns. All but two of these people did not have memorials, so I have added them all to this site, with photos.

I would say this was a very productive day. I hope this aids in your research.

Best regards,
