Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Jennette Bennett McWherter
Re: 26095994

Could you add something to this memorial. Her father is correctly listed as Harmon J. Bennett ... he's buried in Red Oak Iowa. Her mother, Emma Sophia Sperry Bennett is the widow of Harmon. Emma is buried very near Jennette's gravesite. (I'm actually Emma's/Emily's great-great granddaughter and would love to see this verified.) I don't want control of this at this time because I haven't visited the site. I do know that GGGrandma Bennett is related to MOST of the Sperry/Salmon family in Manteca's Pioneer Cemetery. Their roots are deep and those Manteca folks were her brothers/uncles/aunts, etc. Thanks for any help. M. Tietgens

William Grant Dailey Jr
The photo on his memorial is not of him.
If you look for William Daley at the VVMF website you will find that someone took the photo of William Daley and posted it as William Grant Dailey.
The photo of William Daley has his name under the photo.
Could you please delete the photo? And the memorial is a duplicate by Victor V and he will have to delete it anyway per the guidelines.
