Bio Photo As of: 01 May 2017:
I WILL BE HAPPY TO MAKE TRANSFERS WITHIN THE 4 GENERATION "FIND A GRAVE" GUIDELINES. Many of the memorials are of family relations and I would want to talk with you before making transfers. I have been volunteering to take photos at the local "Mountain View Cemetery" in Oakland, CA., since it is very large and gone mostly un-photographed, because of its size and poor contact with the office staff there. Please use the "EDIT" tab to ask for EACH transfer.

For EXTENDED FAMILY MEMBERS I will gladly make additions, corrections or links.
PLEASE USE the "EDIT" TAB on the upper right side of the memorial to send the information and please send the memorial numbers for links.

Please DO NOT leave biographical information and obituaries in a virtual flower.

Thanks to all of you who have sent additional information for the memorials.

I started studying my BABCOCK family just before my daughter was born many years ago, to give her an idea of who her family was & where they came from. I soon got stuck on Sherman BABCOCK b. 1762, in Rhode Island, & now some 37 years later, I now have over 16,000 family members under many different names in many countries from all around the world & 5 beautiful grandchildren. It is now for them, that I continue my research. The family names include: ABERT, BABCOCK, BEDENK, BRAAE-JOHANNESSEN, BURK, BURKE, CASE, DAHLIN, DODGE, GULER, LITTLE, MASON, MCCFARLAND, POUTOUS, PURCELL, PYBURN, RICH, WILLARD, and are among many others I continue to research.

To those of who will grab a cemetery full of information & then refuse to consider close family transfers, because you did the initial work & just want FaG #'s, shame, shame on you & your personal issues & false beliefs. To those who help others out when in times of learning, need, research & make such transfers, I thank you for your work, time & true beliefs. As this is what it is all about!

I welcome any and all comments and corrections.
I truely believe:

"Our greatest treasure is our family, not only the warm circle around the Christmas tree, but all those whose lives gave us life, and those who will carry our love into the future." (Anonymous)

And when it is my time, I will say to all who knew me:

"Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die". (Anonymous)

RE: George H. CROFT
His was the only one I saw out there. I have to go back and photograph more headstones, so I will double check

Although I do not find a recorded listing for this person, that really only means the stone is grownover or there isn't one. I do find an area of Cains. I am near the cemetery and it's not too large. I will see what I can find.

Helen Bovee
Hello Russell

Unfortunately Helen's Grave is unmarked. I did photograph other family members Carl H Bovee #145803815, Emma F Bovee #145803850 & Harold Joseph Bovee.

Hope this helps
