|Bio and Links|
Feel free to use my photos and biographical comments to enhance your genealogical projects. No credit due.|
Find-A-Grave is a wonderful site and it keeps getting better, aside from a few cranky old individuals who rigidly adhere to their notions of right and wrong. It has evolved from a simple registry into a valuable genealogical resource. The links are especially helpful in following families and the biographical notes and photos are often invaluable resources. I give a hearty "thank you" to all who contribute.
I'm a native of Colorado, growing-up in the suburbs west of Denver (Lakewood, Golden), but I've lived in San Francisco, California for many years. I enjoy creating memorials and photographing stones, especially for veterans, being a Vietnam veteran myself.
I've spent countless tranquil hours at San Francisco National Cemetery and Golden Gate National Cemetery (both very close to my home), thinking about all those poor old veterans who gave their all, and a trip to Crown Hill Cemetery in Jefferson County, Colorado is always a treat. All 4 of my grandparents and 6 of my 8 great-grandparents are buried there, providing lots of pleasant nostalgia.

You are welcome. It was a tricky family to research. Finally found her on my second attempt.

Thank you Richard
|Lois Kalander Casson||RE: Betty and Carl Gustav Lindholm|
Thank you, Richard. I will take good care of them. Did you know any of the family?
|Max Goodwin||RE: William Steven Walker @GGNC|
Thank you so much for updating Uncle Bill's info, and especially for adding his memorial to begin with. We now know his final resting spot. Although I never met him, Mom and my Aunts speak very highly of what a wonderful man Uncle Bill was. Again thank you! You are greatly appreciated Richard!
|S Berg||RE: Edward Valento at San Fran Nat'l Cem|
This 1920 incident at Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery was the beginning of the end of the Howard Street Gang and the last of California's vigilante neck tie parties. California newspaper articles at the time had various accounts of what happened, but for a fairly accurate version that includes most of the victims, accomplices and Santa Rosa crime scenes, see the Full Text Transcript of the Sonoma County Coroner's Inquisition by Coroner Frank H. Phillips, 12- 27- 1920.
Most other members of the gang; Edward "K.O." Kruvosky, Edmund "Spud" Murphy, Thomas Brady, James M. Carey, Allan Macdonald, to name a few with the longer rap sheets, were tried and convicted soon afterward and appear on the rolls of inmates at San Quentin and Folsom prisons.
Charlie Valento's roots can be traced to a hard working San Francisco immigrant family, many of whom were US military vets. He had his chance in life.

Thanks so much for correcting the spelling. My ancestors have chosen to spell it every which way under the sun, and I've read that boys did this to distinguish "lines" in the family. My great grandfather simplified our Connelly to Conley. Makes it impossible to track relatives sometimes. Thanks again. Have a sunny day.

Thank you so much for the picture of my great-grandfather's brother. I didn't know what had happened to him until I searched Find a Grave. Very much appreciated!

|USCT Cemetery Mgr.||RE: Dade, Early, Kato, McKoy, and Caples|
Attention: Richard Juhl
Richard...thank you for your communication regarding the five (5) Buffalo Soldiers and/or U. S. Colored Troops, as to whether or not their rank ought to be a prefix to their name(s).
My thoughts in that regard are as follows:
1. In regard to Memorials where their rank has been recorded on their headstone...that recordation very strongly implies that, most probably, the deceased's nearest and dearest relative(s) inscribed their rank there, and, therefore, would approve of having the rank as a prefix to the deceased's name.
2. In as much as the Memorials of the five (5) Troopers displayed the following information:
A. Seaman George Caples - Janitor
B. Sgt. William McKoy - Laborer for the railroad (Army Non-Com)
C. Corp. Richard Early - Pullman Porter (Army Non-Com)
D. Pvt. Phillip Kato - ?
E. Pvt. Henry Dade - Cook
Therefore, displaying the rank for the first three (3) above would, most probably, be an upscale act, and, perhaps, displaying the rank for the last two (2) above might, also, be an upscale act.
3. Because FindAGrave has a gazillion Memorials therein (which were not created by a relative of the deceased person), I believe and contend that, in the case of Troops who go so far back in history as the USCT, most of the African-American relatives do not even know that a Memorial now exists, and, also, a substantial number of said relatives do not even know that they had a relative who served in the Civil War
(I was in my 50s before it became known to me that I had a gggrandfather who was a Union Army combat veteran and pensioner).
Richard...those are my thoughts in regard to rank as a prefix. Once again, thank you for contacting me, and, keep up your outstanding work.
Michael James Morton - USCT Cemetery Mgr. (#49120946)
