Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Crescent City CA and for a while was retired and took photos of graves in the cemetery in Crescent City. Another researcher has stepped in and will accomplish photo requests. I have enjoyed working with Find A Grave, but I discovered that the data I posted based on the photos and my transcriptions of grave stones, which I thought would be helpful in the absence of other information, created a cascade of requests for changes and transfers. I will gladly transfer any memorial for a person to whom I am not related. Just let me know, and it is yours.

RE: Georgiana
Hi Cathy,

Sorry to take so long to get back to you. I had a inbox backlog. Thanks for you memories of where she lived. I searched the directories at the state library in San Frnacisco, but I don't know where the information is. Your first had account certainly trumps it.

I haven't been doing an genealogy lately. My interest waxes and wanes.

This looks like the same person, but in different cemeteries. I think one should be deleted. Could you check to see which is correct?

Thank you

RE: Georgiana
Thanks for the clarification. I've added the link. I did a lot of research on Georgiana a year or two ago. After the death of Herbert, I first found her in city directories in Ione and then in Pacific Grove until 1955. The next year, someone else was living at the address. I don't have any information on her first 20 years. Did the family move to Sacramento area?

Her husband was my great great uncle. I have more information on her on my website, I have additional detail on

RE: Georgianna
Hi Cathy,

I'll be glad to make the link, but you're going to have to give me more details. I'm not sure which Georgiana you mean.

Hannah & John Sammons
Hi Cathy,
I find Hannah Sammons at an Ebenezer Cemetery in KY. Did you add her here, have you seen a tombstone for her here? I am of the opinion she was buried at Ebenezer Cemetery in Greene Twp., Hamilton Co., OH.
The listing here sounds like the Hannah m to John Sammons, same children ... I thought was buried at Ebenezer in Green Twp., Hamilton Co., OH... isn't this odd? Perhaps your addition of her went to the wrong Ebenezer? Or, maybe I am wrong ... but I have no record of the Sammons living in KY ever; they were pioneer family in Hamilton Co., OH. thanks for checking this out for me - I was just getting ready to add Hannah and John and their children who were buried at Ebenezer, Green Twp., Hamilton Co., OH.
Many thanks!
