Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in 1938 in Oakland CA and in October 2014, moved to Pleasanton CA, which is 25 miles SE. About fifteen years ago it got into genealogy and since them my life has not been the same. Just ask Chloe, my wife as in many respects she has become a genealogy widow.

Both of my parents came from Colorado. My father was born and raised in the NE corner of Colorado and moved to Arvada, which is near Denver, in 1920. He and my mother who was born in Arvada, met and in 1926 married and came to California.

To date my greatest feeling of accomplishment is finding one of my 2nd GG mother's memorial page and having a photo placed on it. This occurred in Feb 2010 and with great thanks to Fern Bray.

As of the January 3, 2017, I have created 31 memorials all for my wife's or my family members and manage 105 memorials, most of them are direct relatives of my wife or me. Which means that I have had 74 memorials transferred to me by other creators, who I greatly thank. Most come because I have sponsored my family's memorial.

THANKS TO ALL OF THE PEOPLE AT FIND OF GRAVE THAT HAVE ASSISTED ME IN THE NEVER ENDING SEARCH. TO EACH ONE, A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU.

Hello, I just wanted to share, that my husband (Luke)and I lived across the street, Cody, in Arvada, from Jack and Bee High. What a nice message, Bee knitted a baby blanket for our little son. We knew Bee was from the Black family, she was very proud of that! Such a nice write up for them. Thank you, Karen (member)

Mary Sellers and John Halstead
Hi,

The John Halstead (1574-1601) states that he married Mary Sellers (1532-1645). Given the 42 years age difference, I would think that Mary Sellers married John Halstead (1535-1642), his father.

Can you please review and revise accordingly?

John Halstead (1574-1601) is my 1st cousin, 13x removed.

Thanks,

Robert B. Naylor
