Thank you!
Thank you for the photos of my great grandparents headstones...

Levi H Pierce and Electa Ingalls Pierce

If you happen upon Electa's father, Stephen Ingalls. please let me know.. I do not know where he and his wife Sarah Miller are buried. Family records don't say and I have searched the internet but come up with nothing.

Stephen Ingalls was the first Sheriff in Cooperstown and He was a revolutionary war patriot. I suspect he is buried at Lakewood because a few of his children are buried there.. but Lakewood Cemetery records don't go back that far. and when I checked a few months ago the records were all off site being digitized. so currently there is no master list for Lakewood.. only recent burials. i wish I lived close enough to walk Lakewood Cemetery but I am across the country.

May I have permission to use the photos with credit to you for my D.A.R. application?

Thank you!

Bishop, CA Television Film Crew Dies In Crash, Mar

1974
Posted January 27th, 2008 by Stu Beitler
Bishop CAL plane wreckage 3-13-1974.jpg
FLAMING PLANE CRASH KILLS 36.
Bishop, Calif. (UPI) -- A huge black scar below the snow

line on White Mountain Peak marked the spot Thursday

where 36 persons were killed in the flaming crash of a

propeller plane carrying a television film crew home from

location.
The Convair 440 slammed into the side of a ridge at the

7,000-foot level as it missed clearing it Wednesday night

possibly by less than 100 feet. The 44-passenger twin

engine plane exploded into flames on impact, scattering

bodies and debris over the mountain side.
UPI photographer BOB FLORA flew over the area in

Inyo National Forest in daylight Thursday and reported:
"There's a big black scar in the brown dirt on the side of

the mountain. It hit close to the top of the ridge. The tail

section broke off and parts of the plane went over the

top. The tail section is really the only recognizable part

left -- the rudder and the vertical stabilizers were left

virtually intact."
"I was told some bodies were strewn over the top and on

the other side of the ridge. Some deputies said they

thought the plane hit about 100 feet before the ridge -- I

think it was only 40-50 feet below the top."
The dead included 31 members of the cast and film crew

of the ABC-TV "Primal Man" television series and five

plane crew members. The plane was chartered from

Sierra Pacific Airlines which is a scheduled line plying

between Los Angeles and ski resorts in the high Sierra

near the California-Nevada border.
The crash scene was in an almost inaccessible area but

members of a volunteer rescue team made their way to it

on foot and guided Inyo County sheriff's deputies.
Helicopters were on hand from the Air Force and the

Navy to ferry the bodies to a temporary morgue at

Bishop.
ED WALDAPFEL, information officer for the U. S.

Forest Service at Inyo National Forest said the plane was

traveling south and hit the east-west slope close to the

top.
"It crashed on the western slope," he said. "It nosed in

just below the ridge. The tail section looked to be about

100 yards below the top."
The film crew had been in the Mammoth Lakes area

filming the third of the series "Primal Man: Struggle for

Survival." The series dramatizes the evolution of human

beings from animal ancestors into primitive men.
Among the victims were the series director, DENNIS

[R.] AZZARELLA, and actor JANOS PROHASKA who

once played a comic bear character on the old Andy

Williams television series.
Other victims were AZZARELLA'S fiance, IRENE

BUNDY, PROHASKA'S son ROBERT and performers

RICK ACKERMAN, LOREN RAYMOND, "FISH"

PASHBURN, GENE CARVAL, JIM DICKSON and

JACKIE TANG.
A seven-man team from the National Transport Safety

Board in Washington, D. C., was sent to the crash scene.

Federal Aviation Administration investigators from Los

Angeles and Tonopah, Nev., also were at the scene.
Two large military helicopters ferried investigators and

coroner's officers into the crash site on Forest Service

land seven miles from Bishop.
The plane took off at 8:24 p.m. PDT and slammed into

the ridge at the 7,000-foot level less than five minutes

later. It exploded in a ball of flame seen by an Inyo

County deputy sheriff.
MIKE ANTONIO, a helicopter pilot, flew DR. DAVID

SHELDON of Bishop to the crash scene immediately

and they reported all aboard dead.
"The plane smacked hard into the ridge and spread

wreckage for 300 feet," ANTONIO said. "There wasn't

much left of the plane -- only the tail section, part of an

engine and not much else. All of it was burning."
ANTONIO said the bodies were badly burned.
A Forest Service spokesman said the fire burned only a

little sagebrush and did not spread. Snow patches dotted

the landscape.
Pilot of the plane was Capt. ALBERT EVANS, 50, of

Torrance. Crewmembers were PAUL DENNIS, 27,

Pasadena, ROBERT WEST, 52, Torrance, stewardess

MARY PARKER, 19, Paramount. and JAMES

STEINLAUF, 27, Marina Del Rey.

Clues Sought In Plane Crash That Killed 36 [people]

Clues Sought In Plane Crash That Killed 36 [people]

Pictures -- Page A-3

BISHOP (AP) -- Investigators flew by

helicopter yesterday to a rocky ridge where a chartered

plane crashed and exploded, killing 31 members of a

television movie crew and five airline employees.
Witnesses said the Sierra Pacific plane blew

up like a fireball after slamming into the ridge about five

minutes after take-off, from Bishop Airport, Wednesday

night. The twin-engine propeller plane disintegrated on

impact. Only the tail section remained intact.
A helicopter pilot, at the site, said, "They were

all dead. All that we saw was a lot of burning."

Documentary Being Filmed
Wolper Productions, which charted the

Convair 440, for the crew, filming the documentary

series, "The Primal Man," said on of the dead was actor

Janos Prohaska, 54, who played the talking bear, on the

Andy Williams Television show. His Son, Robert, 34,

also was identified as a victim.
A Wolper Productions spokesman, Michael

Manheim, said another victim was Dennis [R.] Azzarella,

a film director and writer, whose credits include the

National Geographic special, "The Violent Earth." and a

television biography on football star Joe Namath.
Manheim said the film crew had been shooting

a Siberian tiger hunt sequence, at the Mammoth Mountain

Resort Area. It was to have aired 02 May [1974].
Gary McCoy, Sierra Pacific, Vice President,

saw the take-off and said he had no idea what caused the

crash, the airline's first.

No Difficulties Reported
In Los Angeles, Sierra Pacific spokesman

Dean Sparkman said the pilot had been in contact with

the control tower, at Bishop Airport, until just before the

crash and reported no difficulties.
The crew, which had been working, in the area

since Monday, was headed to Burbank, a Los Angeles

suburb 250 miles South of here.
Federal Aviation Authority officials, Inyo

County Coroner's workers and an F.B.I. team were at the

scene. The F.B.I. men were assisting in identification of

the bodies, many of which were badly burned.
The cause of the crash was not immediately

known. A team of National Transportation Safety Board

Investigators was on its way to the barren hillside, at

about the 6,500 - foot level, of the White Mountain

Range.
Sierra Pacific is a subsidiary of Mammoth

Mountain Corporation, which operates ski lifts near

Mammoth Lakes, 50 miles north of here.
The air craft crew was identified as Captain

[LTC Albert John] Al Evans, 50, [Pilot] of Torrance;

First Officer, Paul [Thomson] Dennis, 27, [Co-Pilot], of

Pasadena; Captain [Harold Robert "Robert" ] Robert

West, 52, [Observer Pilot, On Flight], of Torrance;

Hostess Mary [Joanne] Parker, 19, [Flight Attendant], of

Paramount and passenger services director James

[Erik]Steinlauf, 27, [Passenger Service Representative for

Sierra Pacific], of Marina del Rey.
