Hi Verna, John Gray is my 4th great grandfather. My line runs through his daughter Sarah America Gray. I found photo copies of the John Gray family bible which lists David and Janet Gray as his parents.
John and his wife Elizabeth had 9 children that I could find.
He had 7 siblings.
I also found a picture of John in his later years.
Thank you so much for this post for findagrave.

stumbaugh family connections
Hi, I am doing research for my cousin's father's family. Her name is Catherine Stumbaugh and she is the daughter of Dean Stumbaugh and Elsie Clay-Stumbaugh. she is especially interested in finding out her indian heritage if possible. Would you be willing to contact her or compare notes with me concerning family records? My email address is The Kissee's tie into her father's linage.

I found you via Robert Clinton Kissee, who is the 2nd great-grandfather of a friend of mine. I've been working on his genealogy for just over a year now. Please write me at

I am working on genealogy of Shultz (my great grandmother's line). I was wondering if you can verify the parents of George for me? Thank you

Memorial # 18846177
Dear Verna: I am transcribing information from the Porterville Cemetery District and I have a person named Margaret Aguirre. She was born 0ct 3, 1919, died on March 17, 2004. This information was received from the Cemetery District. I have found your Margaret Aguirre already added in Hillcrest Cemetery in Porterville, the death date is the same. However there are different birth dates. Do you think this is the same person? I really don't have any more information about her except she was buried in N 35 2 on March 22, 2004.

You can contact me by e-mail at

I won't add this name until we can be certain it is a different person. Thank you, Nancy Edwards

RE: Desiderius Jahn
I added the photos I took. Poor thing was so young. Breaks my heart.

RE: Desiderius Jahn
Oh, wow. Email me for the photo of Dorothy Ann or post a memorial and I'll upload the photos. It "felt" like a family plot so I'm glad I spoke up!

Added by David on Apr 25, 2010 6:35 PM

RE: Desiderius Jahn
It's been my pleasure and I'm glad I realized my error! I added the photos to Mary Jahn's memorial. There is one other grave next to them. The name is Dorothy Ann Beeson (1927-1932). I don't know if she is related of course (maybe a grand daughter), but I thought it was worth passing it along to you just in case.

Desiderius Jahn
Hi Verna,

I originally claimed your photo request and mistakenly wandered into the adjacent cemetery section and of course could not find him. I realized my mistake today and have added his headstone photos.

Next to him is who I assume is his wife, Mary A. Jahn (1867-1942), which I have taken photos of also. If you wish to create a memorial for her and link them, I will gladly post her photos.
