|Bio and Links|
Born and raised in Fresno, California of Alabama born parents, got into Genealogy in 1997 when I could not figure out what else to do with this computer on-line. I have built up quite a lot of pictures of old shots of Clay County and Jefferson County Alabama. I have visited most of the cemeteries of my ancestors and my Wife's ancestors in Missouri, Oklahoma and Arkansas. A Self-proclaimed Historian with a California Historical society (E Clampus Vitus), I am visiting places of historical interest and with my trusty Dimage , Vivitar and Olympus digital cameras have been taking pictures of headstones at whatever cemeteries we may visit and Historical Monuments in our travels in California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Washington. In Fresno, I have added the 1919 biographies of early Fresno residents from the Paul E Vandor book titled "The History of Fresno County" to as many listings as I could. If you have something you would like to have added to a Bio, just drop me a line.|
I follow FindaGrave rules and usually transfer close relatives within 30 days. You can complain to the FindaGrave administrators if you want, but you will likely find they too have little patience for impatient people.

Thank you so much for adding that picture of George M. Furneaux. He was married to my Aunt Ruby Furneaux (Sutter) Who I was never able to meet. It would be amazing to see a picture of her, and even more amazing to see a picture of her sister, my Grandmother Roberta Sutter Harris. So glad you posted that pic. :)

|Wisterial||RE: John King|
I believe you are correct and this is him. Great! I have never heard of SFGenealogy dot com before, so thank you! Thats a really good site! It is always good to find another resource - especially free ones. John was 72 in the 1930 census and that death record you found through LatterDaySnts says the deceased was 74 so it just all matches so well. Also thank you for the info that the little stone shows 1932 on it. Jerry at the cemetery said John is next to Abbie so I will take THAT grave location off and change the date of death for John to 1932. Thanks!
|Nancy/catsaver||RE: Guadalupe Ortiz|
Hi Lester, I was planning on adding Guadalupe, just hadn't gotten to it yet, but would love if you would & request a photo for me to claim. Thanks for offering!
|Wisterial||RE: John King|
Hi Lester, Thanks, I wish somebody from my family was alive to tell me which is the right one. The J. King grave you're calling John King might be him, but my family and the cemetery fellow Jerry also said Jonathan is buried next to Abbie, not Solomon. I do know they take the death record info from whomever is present to give it upon death, not always accurate. I went back to the California Death Index and looked; The middle name is "A", the birth year is right according to the family Bible and the census records, and the town he died at is right. Could the informant have stated his first name wrong, or could the entry clerk have erred on the first name -Of course. The grave next to Solomon may be his, or may be James, Jennie, or Jemima? (We actually DO have more Johns as well! )You said it belongs to John - how do you come to this conclusion? I hope it is him! Are there any dates on that small marker - does it say 1932? If it does, it can't be Jemima, Solomon's mom, or Jonathan, (yes, another Jonathan) Solomon's dad.
This is as far as I can get with this one. I added a note to the memorial to state that the death record shows first name "David" but everything else matches, that way if someone else is looking maybe they might have a way to look into it. At least the cemetery has his name, so we know that he's in that cemetery & near his family. I'm happy you have taken an interest in Jonathan's grave location as i can use all the help I can get & I'd be interested in hearing if you find anything else on him, or that "J" grave. Something verifiable would be SO helpful. Anyway, Lester, this is small potatoes, not to worry. Have a great Memorial Day.
|Wisterial||RE: Abbie Sanderson|
Hi Lester, Thanks for the help. In your message, you said "also found out that the John King next to Solomon Maxwell King is John King age 74 that died on July 17, 1932 in Fresno, so he was born around 1858 just like John Alvin King, but died at age 74," - How did you get this information and is there more? I called the cemetery and Jerry said there are no death records on file at the cemetery for that person buried there, so if you have something concrete, I'd be very happy! I couldn't get much information about that grave awhile back, other than just the letter J. with that great location next to Solomon, but "J" isn't an absolute that its John, as it could be our James, (or any other J name) but it could be that my great aunts were wrong that John was buried by his sister Abbie - Maybe he WAS buried by his dad Solomon, instead. I had put a lot of notes in my write up on his memorial so others can try to figure it out too.
