Bio and Links
As a youngster my parents taught me necessity of showing respect, dignity and the need to honor those departed before us. Find-A-Grave is one of the ways we can fulfill that obligation.

When I retired in 1996, at the urging of my wife, I began researching and recording my family genealogy. My wife had been researching her family for many years prior. As we traveled around the United States it was only natural that we visit the cemeteries of our ancestors. We began photographing the gravestones and then found Find-A-Grave. Our research and recording of family records spun off to include an organized way of recording the photos. Find-A Grave is the perfect vehicle for this project. I continue to organize our photos and will be placing them on the memorials.

The generosity of others in sharing their photographic work is inspiring as I continue to seek new photos from the generous contributors of this organization.

If I can be of assistance to the membership for photo work in the Sacramento, CA area please contact me.

He was an interesting person. Perhaps the Puritans' gift to the rest of us was their community orientation, still at work in his generation Added his namesake to findagrave, Zeba French, Lake County, Ohio, a great-nephew I think:

Mary Heath Spear

the link above is for Hancock Cemetery in Quincy. I see you had a photo request for Mary Heath Spear. Someone from the city has done a kind of find a grave for Hancock Cemetery. Marys stone must be one of the stones that cannot be read.

Col: David and Jane Nelson
Good afternoon
Jane Milligan Nelson was my 5th Great Grandmother. I would like your permission to use Col David and his wife Jane head stones on my tree. And the story you wrote about the Col was amazing and gives a insight into some of are history back then.

Thank you

William Abraham McDonell
I am a good friend of Father Duncan (Don) McDonell. We went to All Souls Grade School in Alhambra, CA and graduated from Alhambra High in 1949, after attending Cathedral High in L.A. His mother Laura and father William (Bill) McDonell were wonderful people. We all remained good friends until they all died. I remember Duncan (Don) telling of riding from Alhambra in the back of an open rumble seat in their car to visit Minnesota. He said he had to keep a blanket over his head a lot of the time as it got pretty windy and cold back there. Thanks for putting them in Find-A-Grave.

I saw a message on here that you are related to them. So am I. Titus Sr. was my 5th great grandfather and Titus Jr. was my 4th. How are you related?

Marlyin Alice Rogers
Hi Dick:

I'm not sure if the headstone has a typo or if she really did spell her name Marlyin Alice Rogers versus Maryln Alice Rogers.

Your choice,
