Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Ely and raised in Ruth, Nevada. Now I live in Sacramento where am a freelance editor. Someone asked my about an odd name in our family and the search was on! I haven't been searching for very long, but I have learned to be very careful. The wrong path can eat up days and lead to the wrong person. Find A Grave is my absolute favorite site.

The paternal side of the tree is filled out nicely. I'm documenting the Welsh Mormons of Utah, my father's line.

The maternal side, not so much. It's almost impossible to track rogues and runaways. My mother and grandmother evaded almost every census. I have only oral history to go by.

Hi Joan, Have you ask to have this memorial transferred to you? I'm thinking the owner is like me and has been adding memorials in this area, but if he is a relative of yours, no harm done. Mary

Hello Joan.
Thanks for the bio data for this memorial. I see you have the same last name. If you like I will pass the memorial to you to manage. I have no relation to this individual.
Thanks again for the data. I have posted it on the memorial. Thanks for all you do for findagrave.

Book of Mormon
I believe I have acquired a copy of an 1842 edition of the Book of Mormon. It has David R Gill written in calligraphy writing on the cover page. My Great-Great grandfather also wrote his own name in the book. Thomas B Evans.

I would enjoy hearing more about David R Gill.

Thanks for letting me know. I do my best to not duplicate but occasionally I do slip up. Mine has been deleted.

He is buried with all those listed on that stone in a group burial....that is his final resting place.
