Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, My name is Sandrae. I live in Southern California. I got interested in graveyards/cemeteries because my husband is a total halloween nut. Over time we both became interested in the history of the people beneath the stones. How did they die? Why are there so many that died so young? We started visiting more and more. I also have a collection of celebrity headstones. (so if you are looking for a certain one I may be able to get a picture for you.) I can pretty much travel around Southern Ca if you need. I live in Orange County, but can travel to Los Angeles County, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura Counties. If I travel to a particular county I'll send out a holler. Our family is the direct ine of John Mcrannald from Scotland (later changed to Mcreynolds). Some of the other family names in our line are Sherpherd, Dixon, Rich, Anderson, Siddens, Blacketer, Bryan, Wells, Summers, Griffiths, EVANS, Keplinger,and Shaw and now Morales and Ashurst. Anyone looking for any of those lines feel free to contact me and I'll see if I can help you.

Weesner Cem
I have finished uploading photos to the Weesner Cemetery. There are still 18 memorials with no photos.

I have about 33 photos that can't be read--or have no visible info on them to determine who they are. I will be returning to the cemetery in a few days to redo some of the photos. Some stones need to be cleaned so that the names can be read.

Some stones have first names, but no last name. These first names don't match any of the memorials already on Findagrave for the Weesner Cemetery.

If there any photos I have done, that you are not satisfied with--let me know which ones you want done better. I will do the best I can.

McReynolds at Weesner Cem
I was more than happy to help you with the McReynolds photos. I photographed the entire cemetery, so should be able to get you the other photos you need (or most of them). Some stones are very worn, so I can't read the photos. Hope those aren't the McReynolds ones you need. It will take time to get them processed and uploaded to Findagrave.

RE: Bell Markers
Good morning Sandrae,
Sorry to hear about your loss. Thanks for the photos. Being in Oklahoma, it is hard sometime to get to where we need photos taken. Always good to hear from others who can help out.
Thanks again, Jim

RE: mcreynolds family
If I remember correctly......they are related a couple of different ways. surnames KEENER, EVANS, RAYBORN, BRYAN, all tie together.
I don't have any photos of headstones for this part of the family but I know someone that does. He is going to post them to this site as soon as he can get to it. I will keep in touch.
