Bio and Links
Bio Photo Almost lifelong resident of the Santa Clara Valley, and glad to assist those seeking grave sites in the SF Bay Area. I'm fortunate to have had the help of so many kind people across the country who have provided photos and information on the grave sites of my ancestors, and happy to do my part in return.

Please feel free to use any of the headstone or cemetery photos I have added, there's nothing proprietary about them and the goal should be to freely share our heritage to make the historical record as complete as possible for posterity.

Should any of the memorials under my care be for members of your family, just let me know and I will gladly transfer - always glad to see these memorials maintained by family, however distant in relationship. Similarly, I welcome updates to make these records more thorough. In either case, please use the "Edit" tab on the affected memorial, and then the "suggest a correction" link to send me your request or update.

Good luck in your own research and thanks in advance for your contributions to our collective, volunteer effort!

Gerald Schoonhoven Photo Request
Thank you so much for your help in finding and taking the photo for Gerald for me. I was shocked at how fast you fulfilled the request. His sister Sylvia wanted me to create his memorial and is very happy that you were able to find him. Thanks for all your work in Find A Grave. Have a great day!

Mr. Utley,

Thank you very much for creating the file for my father and uploading a photo of his tombstone! I haven't had a chance to make it back to visit him yet so it was a treat to actually see the marker.

I do request that you transfer this file to me, Jeannette Kentch, as I am his daughter and would very much like to update the information and link him to his other family members.

My contributer number is #48439243. You may also locate my email on my bio page.

I do look forward to hearing from you soon!

You have requested that Squeak change the photo for Sam - photo is upside down.

This upside down photo is highly offensive to Sam's family.

If photo cannot be fixed, please remove it.

Also, I would like to be in charge of my dad's Find A Grave site - can you tell me how to do that, please. Thank you,

My email address is

Thank you, Mark. No rush, anytime - long-time - will be okay. I'm slow and only do family and close friends.

Insko - Mary and Eugene
Hello Mark,
Thank you for the many pictures you have contributed at Alta Mesa Cemetery and for the memorial transfers to me of my parents, Charles Meckling Meek and Lavina Hewitt Meek.
Now I am asking for another favor.
Do you know if Eugene and Mary Insko are buried in the mausoleum just across the aisle from my parents?
They are family friends. If they are in the mausoleum, I will create a memorial for each of them and write a short bio.
Thank you for any information you can give me.
