Bio and Links
Bio Photo My parents grew up in Butte. My father served 22 years in the Airforce and retired in Florida, pledging to never be cold again. To this day, I live in Orlando.
I started researching family history when my son was deployed to Iraq during the initial "war". It was a good hobby to choose, and it kept my mind off of daily fears for his life and well-being. It also lent for more interesting letters between us.
My son has since safely returned home and is the father of three amazing children.
The thing I love most about genealogy, is the stories of the many people with whom I'm connected to. Sometimes these stories are in biography form, and sometimes they emerge as if from the ash
es; revealed by dates and locations of births and deaths, occupations, siblings, current events and wars of their time, ship's logs, census, etc.
Find a Grave offers a format to immortalize the wonderful, striving people who came before me. As I add new records, I hope that these remembrances will be forever, and available free for posterity.

Hello Patty,
My nam is Florence and I am writing to ask you about your great grandfather on findagarve memorial # 10903568 I guess I have a duplicate of him memorial 28472331 I have a picture of his headstone on my memorial that I took in 2008 It has been a long time and I canít remember how he related to me I think through the Peterson or Beddoes side not sure but but the question is how do we combine these together and get the correct birth date? If you would like to keep the Memorial I would be glad to give it to you sense you are a closer relative.
Thanks Flo Gold

Dear Patty,

Gen. Jervey's entry in Cullum's Register is now online on my site at; you can use it of course to expand and fill in if you like, also correct the bits that your previous source got wrong: Class of†1888, and places of birth and death switched.

(Also, I liked your Dad's "pledging to never be cold again" !)
