Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been into family history since the 1960's. I'm grateful that I started when I did as so much family information gets lost because we don't ask questions early on.

Find a Grave is a great site and powerful resource. Thanks to all who work so hard to fulfill its primary purpose - documenting known burials.

I'm currently working in Olivet Memorial Park in Colma, CA. I particularly enjoy it when my work preserves pre-1906 earthquake information.

I'm happy to make changes and links for well documented information. Please send transcriptions of obits and news articles (with name and date of the publication) rather than uploading images of them to the photo area (this is no longer permitted by Find-a-Grave). Also, please note that "cut and paste" or transcribed census reports are NOT a bio. Data will be put into proper fields. If you want more, please write a few narrative sentences.

A note on cause of death... I am am okay with adding general "circumstances of death" such as "of an accidental gun shot while duck hunting," or "in an auto accident," or "at the Battle of Gettysburg," but not suicide or murder. Extended descriptions of death or technical medical causes such as "fracture of skull with cerebral contusions and hemorrhage," or "cirrhosis of liver," etc., will not be added as I feel they are inappropriate to the purpose of Find-a-Grave."

Permission is granted for personal use of any of the photos I have added, giving me credit for having provided them. Permission is denied for use of my photos for posting on other websites (for - please use their linking option instead). Permission is denied for for sale of my photos or for any other use for monetary profit.

For John Fred Stoer (I have his name as Frederick John Stoer), you have Theresa Viola Stoer Schwartz as his daughter. She is his step- sister. They both have John Frederich Stoer (1831-1914) as their father, but their mothers are sisters: John's mother is Carolina Katharina Heimerdinger (1840-1876); Theresa's mother is Emma Amelia Heimerdinger (1858-1936). Thank you for the work you have done. The pictures of the gravestones are great, too.

I'm super stoked to find you and this information for my 2nd great grandmother Gertrude Sharp Dawson, I'm really hoping that if she is there as well as a lot of her family that maybe you might be able to find her husband William Dawson, not her brother (who is also there I've been told).

Thanks Larry. I updated the bio for Fred Susoeff (#28709128). Nicely written by yourself.

Many of my Russian family and others are buried in Olivet pre the dedication of the Russian Sectarian Cemetery in Colma. Some are buried in the Potter's Field. Will you have access to the burial cards or are you roaming the various sections notating the graves? If you run across any Russian names let me know. Thank you.

Olivet is a 'hole' so to speak for many graves.
Lots of names were misspelled on the cards so the people at the cemetery only used the name I asked for and no variant spelling. I have many names that need research as they died before 1932.

You were nice enough to add 2 pictures of a monument for Barbara Jemima Bird (my great-great grandmother). I would like to post those images to her husband's memorial page as well, as the monument is for both of them.

Just wanted to let you know, in case you had any objections.

Memorial #59862951 Henry Collin
Hello Larry - Thank you for the memorial of my great-great grandfather, Henry Augustus Collin. I have contributed his photo. It just seems more complete to have faces with the name. Donna Chesler

Hi Larry,
In a note on Anna's listing, you reference "LBeebe (#47085083)". Could you please help me contact this Contributor, as I would like to see if there is a family connection? Anna is my husband's great aunt.

HI Larry, am picking on one of yours again. Like before, Sexton from Odd Fellows records shows Edwin Coldwell too.

Hi! I just left a message for you through a memorial. Curious to know how far back on the White family you have gone? My grandmother (10329641) researched her maiden name for 28 years and published her red book in 1983.
