Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a second generation native of California, but my roots go deep into New England via the Midwest and Great Plains. (Genealogy and family history figure large in my interests.)

I grew up with a view of Glen Abbey Memorial Park, and my siblings and I roamed its grounds when we could. Although none of my family is buried there, I feel very much at home at Glen Abbey.

I like to take multiple photos in Glen Abbey Memorial Park, to give a feel for the place where people are buried. If I have posted more photographs than you would prefer on a memorial of one of your loved ones, let me know your preferences. On the other hand, if I have only posted a photo of the marker and you would like something more, let me know that, and I will take more photos or add something I already have for that area of the cemetery.

You may contact me at jfgilman at gmail or by a message here.

RE: Evans James Boyce
I've found myself doing the same thing doing genealogy. That's what makes it fun and interesting to me. I felt bad about the condition of the marker in my pic so I went back yesterday afternoon and cleaned it. Sorry for the shadow. It really is a beautiful marker when it's clean.
Have a blessed day.

RE: Evans James Boyce
I wish I could have gotten a better picture. I usually travel with a cleaning kit but was in a different vehicle today. I don't know your relationship to the Boyce's but their granddaughter, Jennifer, is my manicurist. Also, Evans & Wilma were best friends with my husbands parents; Dan & Joeveda Thompson.
Have a blessed day!

Thank you so much for the wonderful photos of Maybelle's gravestone. She is my grandmother-in-law. We are in Minnesota, and rarely make it out to California. I have been working on our family tree - and really appreciate the time you took! I will also add the GPS coords you provided to my list!

Have a WONDERFUL day!
