Ancestor of Talley, Mayo, Cannon and Daniel. Mother working on family tree. |
As of December 2010 I have relocated to the Inland Empire. I am minutes for Riverside National. But still I'm the Queen of the OC. LOL!!!!
I got started in the big Hunt in 1988. First you visit graves of the famous and than you think. Where is this one or this one or that one buried. Before you know it you've got 10,000 photos and growing. It's a never ending hobby. And their not going anywhere. Well that is if your not Lucy or Karen Carpenter or Bob Crane.

|Brooke Staggs||Interview request|
Hello - I'm with the Orange County Register/Southern California News Group. I wanted to see if you might be willing to talk to a reporter here for a potential story on graving. If so, feel free to email me at email@example.com so we can coordinate. Thanks so much, and looking forward to hearing back! -Brooke
Thank you for the volunteer work you do! It's wonderful to be able to add this to my ancestry tree and to see the actual gravesite of my Grandmother.
Just wanted to say thanks for the photo of my great aunt's grave in Riverside, CA............trying to trace family ancestry. Wish I had known her to ask questions.
|John "J-Cat" Griffith||RE: 108567712 John Galardi|
Hello Ms Queen, thank you for your message about Galardi's resting place. Yes I saw that you posted his grave marker and plot number, but they didn't mention the cemetery. Very strange? I will also send
an edit to correct. Thanks again for your effort and best always,
|Linda Davis||RE: 14756820|
Thanks....this photo is find. Don't worry about getting another with her date, if it is even on the marker.
|Linda Davis||Repost one of your photos on another memorial.|
You posted in 2007 a grave marker photo on the Famous memorial for Tom Fears. Find A Grave Memorial# 14756820
Please post it on his wife's 2011 memorial. She has a relationship link on his memorial. Thanks.

|Claudia Pawson Goodman||William Scott Jack Elam had 2 Wives, not 3|
I'm sorry I had a typo in my earlier post, Jack had 2 wives not 3.
As I said in my earlier post, Jack Elam is my son-in-law's 1st cousin 2x removed. (Jacks mother was the sister of my SIL's great grandmother.)
Jack's Movie career started until 3 years after Adrienne Ames death. She was married to her 1st husband when Jack was 5 years old and living a life of high fashion and money in New York, by the time he was 19 years old and married for the 1st time, her movie career was over and she had divorced her 3rd husband and was becoming ill with Cancer. (Still in New York.)
After World War II, Jack Elam worked as a bookkeeper for Samuel Goldwyn Studios and then as controller for William Boyd's Hopalong Cassidy production company. Staring at small figures on ledger sheets for hours on end strained his good eye and doctors told him he risked losing his sight if he continued his lucrative accounting business. When a movie director friend was having trouble getting financing for three western scripts, Jack told him he would arrange the financing in exchange for roles as a "heavy" in all three pictures. The first was The Sundowners (1950), starring Robert Preston, which helped launch his long career.
Jack Elam has 2 documented wives and they were; Jean L. Hodgert they were married on 24 August 1939 in Las Vegas NV, and remained married until her death on 24 January 1961. He then married Margaret M. Jennison on 23 August 1961 in Los Angeles, California and remained married to her until his death on 20 October 2003.
Adrienne Ames was never married to William Scott "Jack" Elam. She had 3 documented husbands; Derward Dumont Truax (1925 - 1928) (divorced) (1 child).
Stephen Ames (21 August 1929 - 30 October 1933) (divorced),
Bruce Cabot (31 October 1933 - 6 April 1937) (divorced),
Her Hollywood career lasted about 10 years. From 1929 to 1940. In 1931 Adrienne Ames married actor Bruce Cabot after leaving her second husband, a rich New York City stockbroker, but that marriage only lasted six years. In her divorce she told the court that the main reason she left him was that he was a violent, uncontrollable drunk. In 1938 the pair appeared before a US Tax Appeals Board to explain why she wrote off more than $9000 in wardrobe and jewelry on her 1934 tax form, which she claimed was necessary for "professional reasons" (as was her maid). She claimed that her "daily expenses" included flowers, massages, taxis and beauty work.
There is no documentation of her being married to Jack and he had 2 wives that are documented in California during the time she is documented as a Wealthy Socialite in New York City. She was sick with Cancer for a long time before she died in 1947.
Please remove her as Jack Elam's Spouse.
