Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Moved to West Union, Iowa as an infant where I spent the first 25 years of life. Relocated to San Bernardino, California in 1964 and was employed at the Aerospace Corporation. In 1967 I accepted a position at Autonetics in Anaheim, a Division of North American Aviation. The company later became North American Rockwell, then Rockwell, and finally in 1996 Boeing acquired the missile and defense portion of Rockwell. Retired from Boeing as a Quality Assurance Senior Program Analyst after 32-1/2 years with Rockwell.

My husband and I now reside in beautiful Temecula, California. We enjoy family research, walking cemeteries, travel, gardening, skiing, and investigating the wonderful scenery of the area. We have a blended family of 5 children, 8 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren, and 2 cat-children.

I enjoy posting memorials on Find A Grave for a couple of reasons: to honor and remember my deceased relatives, and to help others reestablish family connections.

- All information posted is for my or my husband's relatives and is derived from our research.
- All information posted is within public domain which means that the information is not private and is available to anyone.
- All gravestone photos were taken by me or my husband. I don't mind sharing but please ask permission.
- I will be happy to make changes if credible evidence/documentation is supplied.

Harold and Rete Buhmann
Hello Kay Fordham. Thank you so much for sharing memories of Rete Buhmann. I actually took over the memorial after another person created it as I have been trying to connect as many relatives as possible. Harold was my 2nd cousin 1x removed via his mother Rosie Ehlers Buhmann. Do you happen to know where Rosie and her husband Henry Buhmann were buried? I also created memorials for them; however, lacking a burial site.
Thanks again. Find A Grave is a wonderful platform for us "genealogically obsessed" people!

I wanted to let you know that I have posted a photo to Georgia's memorial. Her daughter, Noma and her husband, Stewart McClure, are interred next to her.
Have a great day.

RE: Anna Albrecht Gravestone Photo
Glad I was able to help. I looked once before, but now that the weather is nicer it was much easier to find.

RE: Gilbert Ammerman Gravestone
No problem. I took photos of all the Ammerman's, unfortunately many of the stones are damaged

RE: Hanno Grave Site
your welcome Kay. I picked a good day to go back to wood lawn and re-photograph the entire section, had to stop in the middle, wind picked up and it was getting close to gate closing. The following week we got 7 inches of snow dumped on us, so the rest will have to wait until spring or a flame thrower because we got another 6-7 inches on Monday. HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

William Powell Ferree
I noticed that you posted a memorial on the page for William Powell Ferree. Are you or your husband related to the Ferree Family? The reason I ask is that I am an advisor to a Boy Scout working on his Eagle Project at the Historic Ferree Cemetery in Coraopolis PA. This is the cemetery that William Powell Ferree's parents are buried in. We are searching for additional information about the Ferree's buried there. In particular a Nancy Ferree whose stone is unreadable except for the name. Thank you.

Van Buren - Fadden link
I am the Great great Grandson of Elizabeth (Gillett) Van Buren, who later married John Fadden. We have been trying to find where she is buried. Do you have any info on her?

RE: William J. Bearden (Memorial# 96631059)

Your welcome.

I don't believe we are related.

I'm researching early Corpus Christi and Nueces County families to help me with my family history, and I try to save obit's, etc. that I come across to memorial pages to help others when I can.

take care,

William J. Bearden (Memorial# 96631059)
Hi Kay,

I came across the obit for a W. J. Bearden which I believe is the same William J. Bearden in the memorial page you created. I located the death certificate that appears to match the obit, but the dates don't quite match his memorial page. I've saved copies of the obit and death cert to his memorial page. If it's not the same person let me know so I can remove them.

Take care.
