Bio and Links
I'm in my 60's and just recently discovered Find A Grave. I think its wonderful and I've been trying to find my relatives and either add them or at least link parents to children. I think it's important to remember where you came from.
My families I'm working on are Abbott, Buck, Dendy, Callaway. I'm a Buck who married an Abbott and have Abbott's, Buck's, Dendy's and Callaway's for aunts, uncles, grandparents, ggrandparents, etc. I also think it's important for the dead not to be forgotten and linking them with families just makes it easier to imagine them all together.

RE: Weeks at Forest Park Lawndale
Carl buried between Mother, Texas Pearl and wife.
Have on my list to redo Carl, when mud dries and can clean better.

RE: Sandra Dean/Forest Park
Now I get it. Looked at Theresa's site. I didn't do photo, can't transfer ( and I don't know how to). However, will be out to cemetery this week, and will do Sandra the same way as parents.
Large marker, and then her name.

ALSO, How do you transfer a photo from a memorial to somewhere else?

Sandra Dean/Forest Park
Not sure what you want. She is buried next to or under her Mom? Want photo of Theresa (Mom) marker, presume Sandra has none? If she has one, will photo it.
More rain today, Sunday. May be able to go later in the week. jjm

Great, Great Grandfather Lancaster
Hi Martha,

I'm getting confused on Under William J. Lancaster, I have found Thomas H. Lancaster as his dad and also Jesse Lancaster as his dad. Do you know which one is our great, great grandfather?

Hi Martha,

F.Y.I., My uncle Royce "Sonny" Lancaster is buried
at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills, CA. I'll have to check the date and year when he passed.

Also, my mom's last name is Berge, not Holz. My mom and dad divorced back in the early 70's.

Thank you for keeping this up.

Eva L. Buck Lancaster
Hello Martha,

Thank you for the information regarding Eva. I have added it.

Usually, I do not transfer memorials of people who are, also, in my tree, unless they meet the Find A Grave guidelines, especially in the DeGray Cemetery. I am somehow related to most of the people there (either by blood or marriage). However, in this instance, I think you could do this memorial more justice than I could. My main objective is to make sure each memorial is a tribute to the person. I have seen what a wonderful job you have done on the memorials you manage. If you would like for me to transfer management of this memorial to you, please contact me:
