Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been a genealogist for almost 40 years. From the beginning of my research I have taken photos of the family graves. I am now trying to add the family grave locations and photos for others to share. I am thankful for a site like this.
Most of my entries are for my family. I have been adding some others from my records. If you are related and it's not my family, I would be happy to transfer them. Also would love to hear from anyone who is related.
I want to add that if I over look thanking anyone for taking photos, transfering memorials or updating information, I am thankful for each of you and grateful for those that create memorials for my loved ones. Our family is the greatest gift we have and seeing their grave is a reminder that they are remembered and loved. This is a great site and am grateful to all that contribute.

Kelly Totten
Any Relation?
Hi Jon,

My name is Kelly Totten and I am slowly starting to research my family history. I am a decedent of Peery Estel "Doc" Totten, he is my Great Grandfather. His son Daniel Totten is my Father's (Dale R. Totten) Father. I was wondering if you are of any relation and if you are still in the Virginia area?

Thanks! :)

I'm helping my wife, Giuliana Ragnone, research her family history. Your family has Ragnone members from Portland, correct?

Back in July 2013 & Nov 2013 and several times since then, I sent you a Sac and messages asking you to remove Find A Grave Memorial# 65389226 from the Rialto Park Cemetery, I have verified with the cemetery that she is not buried out there. I would like to keep this cemetery as accurate as possible. Since you do not know where she is buried please list her burial place as unknown. I have verified with the cemetery that she is not buried here at Rialto Park Cemetery.

Thank You

Arnold A. Petrick
HI Jon,
Are you related to Arnold A. Petrick? I found something very interesting about him yesterday in Duvall, WA.

Hi Jon
wow that is so interesting about these letters. And yes that is my address. The house has really been updated since we bought it in 1983. I will have to send you a picture of it. Or you may be able to type in my address and look at it. My husband was a sheet rocker and we tore all the plaster out and lowered the ceilings and did alot of stuff to it. When we bought it, it was pea green. Now it has nice gray siding on it and we actually just started on the upstairs. Anyway I am sending the letters to you this week in a bubble envelope so they don't get ruined. I will be putting a label on it from my work though so be on the look out for that ok. Thank you for the update and I am thrilled I found you to pass this down too. The are very precious! Thanks again!

Jerome Nist
Hi Jon,
I noticed you added a memorial for Jerome Nist, my uncle.
I am looking for more info on some members of the Nist family and do not know how to get it.
I would be very grateful if you could help me in any way.

Thank you

RE: Alice Totten Anderson
Hello Jon! so sorry I have not been on this for awhile. I would be very happy to send you the letters. I am so interested in finding out if they lived in that house or had it built? Its hard to find out some of that information. My husband thought some people used paper and stuff for insulation back in those days. We found like old socks also and cards that were torn. I thought how can I ever find a relative by the last name of Anderson. There are so many. It was very cool that you posted her picture. She was very pretty.
What did Andy die from? Do you know what he did for a living? I will get those letters mailed to you Jon.
They are pretty special and his hand writing was amazing.
Talk to you later
