William Cleveland/George Cleveland
I agree that it was George Cleveland who married Della not his brother William. Sorry for the mistake. I have not yet located George Cleveland's grave so cannot suggest alternative link. I have found George in the in the 1910 census living in Sacramento listed as divorced. He is also listed in California Death Index 1905-1939, death date June 23, 1916, age 48.

RE: Klein children
Ginny, Thanks for your contribution. I have found Charles Beverley Sampson he is Memorial# 69659044
on findagrave. Buried at the now defunct Lone Mountain cemetery, his remains were moved to cypress lawn Memorial, Colma. I'm not sure how to go about reflecting this information in Findagrave as it is possible the original entry was via paper records.
here he is as now,
Interestingly, there is a Charles C Sampson also in Cypress lawn along with two other people. Might be Charles Clair Sampson as he spent a lot of his time in San Francisco and his recorded birth year is about correct.ditto his death year. Memorial# 105096415
Quite a bit I could add to these if I can verify

RE: Charles Klein
Interestingly, to have W H Sampson, her uncle, (Her father Charles Beverley Sampson, I think has been moved from Lone Mountain to Colma) have Charles W. Klein included suggests they may all be there. William Henry Sampson has a headstone at least. track down the rest of her children!
Am now looking for the other early settler, John Sampson, who was also a brother to W H and Charles Beverley Sampson. There are conflicting reports about his place of death, either Marysville, or, also listed as living in San Jose. Have you come across him at all?

I have made the change - requesting the obit be added to the "correct" memorial ... and, have deleted the incorrectly added one. Thank you for your eagle eye, and help in getting the information posted to the correct memorial. A

Thanks for your prompt reply Ginny. The bio appears on page 290 - 293 of Delay's book with picture appearing on pg 286. (Picture is small and poor quality). My copy of Delay's book has a crumbling cover and probably should be recovered as well.

BTW, I also have a copy of Prof J.M. Guinn's "History of the State of California and Biographical Record of the Sacramento Valley, California" in case you ever need a lookup. Perhaps you already have this book as well. It contains some bios not in Delay's book.

Good luck with your research,

Judy Pease Joyce

Charles W. McConaughy
Received your suggested correction to change date of death from Nov. 18th to Nov 20th. The date of death is mentioned in the biography by Peter J. Delay "History of Yuba and Sutter Counties" as Nov 18th. Also Calif probate records mention Nov 18th. I have searched trying to find another source of information re death date but with no luck. Can you tell me your source for the Nov 20 date?

Thank you

(you can contact me through the memorial #155439687)

RE: Frank Bennett- Gridley Biggs Cemetery
Ginny, Photo has been added.

Added by Fran on Nov 25, 2016 4:39 PM

It did seem a bit odd that you hadn't pulled the info from the picture--but I figured you must have just overlooked it. I did send a request to him to move the picture, in an "old-style" SAC which I can later forward to Edit if necessary.

RE: Sofhronia S Drum # 79448826
Thank you so much for the information on Sophronia Drum. Do you happen to have information on Sophronia Drum's father, Richard Schockley and her brother, Thomas Schockley? They are both buried in the Historic Marysville City Cemetery. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you,
M. Royal

George Washington Shelton
His mother and father were reversed--I didn't notice if that had caused his mother to be listed first (I think it does)--but they're fixed now.

RE: William Edward Bluett
You are absolutely correct that James E Bluett b. 1866 died 1-8-1938 Memorial # 127154914 and Thersa G Bluett b. 10-8-1873 died 10-14-1945 memorial # 127154915.
You were also correct that James W Bluett was the Uncle of William E and the son of John and Susan.
As you stated that it was nothing more than a state of confusion created over common names and by doing too much computer work for too long. I have a tendency of obsessing and doing too much at any one sitting. I can be my own worse enemy in this regard.
I have made all necessary changes and again for thats for all your guidance.

RE: William Edward Bluett
Hello, Thanks for your quick response. I will admit I made an assumption when I listed William E Bluett's burial as Marysville Cemetery. It's not something usually do but his brother, John W Bluett was also buried there. I am glad that your expertise caught it and now I can delete that info from his memorial.
I am puzzled about your questioning of his parentage, unless my edit request was incorrect In my tree, William's parents are the James E & Theresa Bluett and buried in Live Oak Cemetery. I intended to request them as his parents.
I retrospect I might have requested his parents as John Bluett and Susan Tonkin. My bad!!! They are in fact his grandparents. I have spent the afternoon linking their children on the website and must have become confused.
Let me know if you agree and if I need to resend an edit request for his parents.
Thanks for your diligence and all you do to make these records correct.

RE: Abby Reardan, Marysville Cemetery
Oh, SO glad you caught my error. Appreciate you letting me know, and I'll delete the erroneous request, as you suggest. A

thanks overdue
I, too, am guilty of being in too much of a rush to "get things done" that I rarely take the time to thank folks like you who are seriously dedicated to preserving the memories of so many long-forgotten people. So--thank you for all you do.

I have been particularly intrigued by all the unknown, unnamed infants in my various families who are only known because their mother, in either the 1900 or 1910 censuses (or both) stated how many children she had had, with the number of then-living children being fewer. In several cases, because of the info that people like you have added to Find A Grave, I have been able to identify some of these infants. It has been gratifying to find that my "guesstimates" for their birth and death years have been very close in many cases.

I agree with what you wrote in your Bio that FYI does have a rather snooty or snotty ring to it. Luckily most people on Find A Grave seem to understand the collaborative nature of what we're doing here. The new--well, not so new any more--editing system has saved so much time for so many of us! But there are still a few people who just don't "get it" and seem to think that their discovery of a minor error makes them superior...or something. I've still not figured out what makes them tick.

RE: Strain family
I looked for the erronious memorials to remove them and was not able to find them. Could they have already been removed? Sorry, this website is not very user-friendly. If there is something else I should be doing and you know how I can accomplish it, please let me know. Sorry I created memorials in error.

Thank you for your assistance.

Dear GMT,

I want to extend my sincere gratitude for the copy of C.D. Wight's obituary. Because of the wealth of information it provided, I have found her children and a previous husband. The obit. has been added to Cesandria's memorial.
Your contribution is truly appreciated.
