Walch, Messal
Hi Tammy: Tried sending you an email but not sure if you rec'd it. Anxious to discuss the Walch/Messal families with you. I am the great-granddaughter of Jacob & Katherine; Bonnie Draper was my grandfather and Louis Alexander my father. My grandmother was Tillie (nee Messal) & she died in 1949.

You also indicated you are researching Childers ..are these the Childers from Jackson County (possibly Applegate?) My sister, Carla married Buddy (Allen) Childers and they have 2 children. Carla passed away in 1987.

I started researching in the mid 90's but haven't done much in quite some time. I do have some pictures and details. Was your grandmother one of the people who put together the 2 volumes on the Walch clan - now in the Genealogy library in Phoenix? I'd love to get a copy of those if you know how. Please contact me ASAP. Thank you.

Hi Tammy,
Glad I could be of help, it's always nice to know some random photo I took means something to somebody :)

RE: Messal Headstone-Oroville Ca

I am related, however, I have not uploaded any of these photos. The person that creates a memorial is not necessarily the same person that adds photos. Any member of Find A Grave can upload photos to the memorials.

For example, look at Easter Venita Walch, #42343699 ( Under her headstone, it says Added by: Larry Moore, which means he added the photo. If you click on the headstone photo, it will also show you the date it was uploaded and any notes the person may have added. If you click on the name (Larry Moore), it will take you to their profile page.

Look on my profile page, you will see that I have a total of 8 photos. If you click on the photos link (, you will see a list of the memorials where I have uploaded photos.

RE: Ray and Ann Holst
Hi Tammy,
Ah, I see the problem now...I was looking for Ray, and his name is Monterey!
You can use the pix on Ancestry, all I ask is that you credit me as being the photographer. Not cos I don't like to share, but so it doesn't look I've stolen my own photographs from Ancestry.

Re: William Andrew Sommers (#43392455) and Rose A. Messal Sommers (#43392436)

You were asking if it was okay to copy my pics to Ancestry. I don't have any pics on these memorials.

If you are talking about another memorial, you need to specify their name as listed on the memorial and their memorial number.

Also, if you want to suggest a correction (SAC), you need to use the Edit tab on the person's memorial page.

Have a great day.

Hi Tammy,
Can you send me a link to the memorial in question? I'm still baffled, and looking at the memorials would be a big help towards answering your question.

Hi Tammy,
Um...I have no idea what you're talking about! I don't have any Holst memorials, and searching for Ray Holst on the site, none of the hits have any photos added by me. Maybe I'm missing something, but I'm kinda confused. Sure you got the right contributor?

RE: Whittingham Family Photo's
Tammy, You may use any and all photos I post. I believe that gravestone photos belong to the world, not to me.

Yes, there is a most definitely a relationship. My husband's maternal grandmother was Virginia Whittingham, daughter of Hannah's brother William. Virginia and your mother would have been cousins. That makes my husband, Mark, your second cousin, once removed. How fun is that?

If you care to take this "off line", my email address is emersunrose(at)yahoo(dot)com.

Your cuz,
