Bio and Links
Bio Photo Retired Telecommunications Engineer/Consultant.
Born in Mi., lived in So. Cal. & No. Cal.
Currently an olive grower near Redding, Ca.
Interests include: Genealogy, gardening, and grand kids; but most of my time is consumed working in the orchard.

With more people opting for cremation, I am creating memorials for them so loved ones have a place to visit and remember.

Most of the memorials I manage are of my deceased wife's and my own family's and many in our direct lines. I will consider transfers to others in direct line but not in ours. Please use the "EDIT" tab and "SAC" Link for transfer requests, and provide linage information to substantiate.

Just a second . . .
. . . I thought I added the area photo. Let me go back and find out what happened to it. I'm sure I got a photo of where she is buried.

RE: Joanna Girard
Sorry, Jim, I thought I already sent you a message; guess I forgot. The cemetery staff confirmed that her grave is definitely unmarked. I uploaded a photo of the area. I wish it would have been a more positive outcome.

Best regards,

Hello! I fulfilled your photo request and I looked for other Girards in the area, but there weren't any. I will ask at the office for the location of Joanna, and will get that photo next week. Please don't do a separate photo request or I probably won't be able to claim it before someone else does.

I transferred Stella's memorial to your care. I am so glad I entered her memorial and you finally found her!

Take care,

Jesse W. Robart

I am the descendant of Jesse W. Robart, born in 1807. My cousin and I have been searching for his grave for many years. We have visited Catherine Robart's grave in the Barry Co. Michigan cemetery German Evangelical - but there is no grave stone for Jesse. Could you share where you obtained your information including Jesse's date of death?

Sallie Hildebrand

Do you have a picture of Sallie Hildebrand's (124336203) tombstone or other record stating birth, because the Michigan Births from 1867 - 1902, put Sallie's birth as Dec. 24, 1889, Richland, Montcalm, MI parents Charles Hilderbrand & Katie (ie. Catherine) Hilderband.

I am trying to find out which is correct, 1887 on find-a-grave or the 1889 on Michigan Birth records.

Thank you,

RE: Simon Peter Robart
Hi Jim,
He was a mystery for almost 2 years. His name was 1st shown in the online cemetery burial records as SP Robert. [Puzzling to Larry and I both as all the other Robert graves were family.] The cemetery burial records now show there is NO tombstone for Simon Peter Robart and he is now listed under his proper name, so I have removed the photo of the 2 Purtill children. Thanks.
