Bio and Links
Bio Photo Additional information and corrections are very welcome. Feel free to use my headstone photos too, but photo credit would be nice.

If anyone wants to take over the management of their family member's memorial from me, just ask. As long as you're related to the deceased, that's good enough for me. Please remember to include your Find A Grave ID number when requesting the transfer.

Please do not post complete obituaries on my memorials (too many problems with people's privacy and copyright infringement). Paraphrasing the main points from an obituary is great, and I'm happy to add that if you forward it to me using the Edit tab.

Transcript from the Amador Ledger (Calif.), November 2, 1900:
On the gate of the cemetery in Rio de Janeiro is a notice in Spanish, French, and English that no dogs are admitted unless led by the owner. This is how the announcement is made in English: "Noble mesdames and gentlemen who may desire a dog to follow in this tombsyard will be permission unless him drawn by a cable round him throttle."

RE: memorial # 179188372
Hi Kathie, Allen and Hannah were both born and raised in New Jersey and married there. In 1957, they moved to the Chicago suburbs and lived there until her death in 1992,shortly after their 50th wedding anniversary. Allen remarried in 1997 and moved to his new wife's home in Lafayette,Ca. They attended the Presbyterian church and chose to have his remains placed in their memorial garden. His second wife, Margaret, is buried with her first husband. We added my mom's name as a centaph since she has no gravemarker. As I mentioned in an email I sent you after seeing the find a grave response, before I saw this message, I am their daughter and would like to maintain Hannah's site. My findagrave number is 48804142. Thank you for what you have already done. Linda

Juan Richard "John" Yriarte Headstone
Hello Kathie;

Thank You greatly for your kindness and time in the Headstone Picture of Juan Richard Yriarte 31689972 memorial number.

He was the father of my Best Friend & Classmate, Sue. Her father and mother marriage ended in Divorce. Sadly, he never replied to her letters throughout her lifetime. She reached out to him, when she lost her Mother from cancer at age 15. Her mother's sister, still living in California trying to help reunite them. Sad, this Never happened for Sue.

Sue passed away from Cancer in 2015, she told us maybe once in Heaven she could see her Father as well as her Mother, and Family...

It is people like you to volunteer to help people like myself to visit their Memorial, as I do not live close nor can get there anytime in the near future.

The Headstone Picture is Great. I Thank You greatly!

She carried the Henderson name. Don't know why... maybe because her parents divorced. Some people are like that. I have family that did the same thing.

RE: Elmer Conant
You are very welcome! Was surprised when I found that. He was the great grandfather of my cousin. I asked my cousin if he knew about that and he did not. So he asked his mom and she said yes but did not know the whole story.

Mahalo, Gloria

Hi Kathie - that's OK, after I made the request I noticed that you are related to the Platts, and had done some work and picture-taking at Rose Hill. I'm not closely related to Platts, I'm a descendant of David Blakeslee. Will send you the obit.
