Bio and Links
Bio Photo Grandma Mac (Elizabeth Ella Kellogg MacFaddin) was the genealogist of the family. She got the "bug" from her father. She kept all her research in an old black suitcase. There were notes on all sorts of scraps of paper – the back of a grocery list, used envelopes and even a bank statement here and there. Her handwriting was neat and dainty. She would come down from Fresno and Daddy would drive her in to the Los Angeles Main Library to spend all day there working on her research. When she passed away in 1970 the suitcase was put away, until my sister took up the task in 1999, of sorting through all of Grandma's bits and bobs of information.

I personally had no interest in genealogy. That is until 2008 when quite by accident, I found my Dad's name in another family tree. So it's not my fault that I've become obsessed with the family history. I have a need to connect the dots.

Back to Grandma Mac, wouldn't she just have a field day with all the information that is at our fingertips today? Many thanks go out to all the volunteers through the various groups, like Find A Grave that give their time to help put the family puzzles together.

Names I am researching: MacFaddin/McFaddin or McFadden, Boynton, Breed, Caldow, Clark, Cody, Higgins, Hiscock, Houghton, Kellogg, Rathermel, Sairs, Schuck and Wilder.

Transfer request
Thank you so much for the wonderful work you've done. Would you mind transferring my cousin's memorial to me? I just sponsored it and put a photo of him on the memorial. Would love to update it more.

It's: Roger Franklin Holloway

I live in Sacramento, so if you ever need help with research on any folks in this area, please let me know. Thanks again!

Frank & Mable Carver
Frank #115812850 and Mable #115812853 Carver are my great uncle and aunt. They are buried in the Good Shepard Cemetery. I know that because he is not a direct relative you are not required to transfer them to me but if you would I very much appreciate having them with the rest of the family. Frank and Mable couldn't have children but they did adopt Frank's brother's daughter when he died. If you don't want to transfer I will understand but if you do I am B J Nelson #46864554.
