Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am now a ninety one year old mother, grandmother, gr-grandmother, and recently a gr-gr-grandmother. On my 80th birthday my grandkids were ask to share what they remember about grandma. Because I realized they didn't know much about their ancestors, I decided to write down what I remembered of the stories that were told to me as I was growing up. That lead me to contact the Sequoia Genealogical Society.

Volunteers taught me how to find more than 100 years of local family history from the Tulare City Libraries Genealogical Collection.

One volunteer, a retired school teacher taught me, fourth grade style, how to search the Internet on the computer. That year my daughter and grand children gave me a computer for Christmas, and I was off and flying and now I added Find a Grave to my activities.

Seen on another contributor's profile. I couldn't agree more.

We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the storytellers of the tribe.

When you visit one of my memorials please leave a flower. I appreciate it when you say what relation, if any, to a person.

Because of my age I would like to transfer some of my memorials. For many of them, I am not a direct descendant, and I prefer to transfer to direct descendants. There are a few occasions where I will make an exception. I will not make any transfers unless you leave a flower and a note.

It seems, my friend, that you have as much family in the Bayard Cemetery as I do. I hope my sister and I are helping you in your search. We found John, Sara, Allen, William, James, Raymond, Eva, Kyle, and Joseph Chambers. Good luck!

Henry Aye's tombstone
Your photograph of the tombstone of Henry Aye (1794-1870) [Find A Grave Memorial# 46219711] is listed on Find A Grave. The profile lists the burial cemetery as unknown. Do you recall where you took the photograph? I would like to know in what cemetery that tombstone is found. Thank you very much.

Photo Request again
I am slowly working through my nearly 600 photos of the Bayard Cemetery and I noticed you requested Agnes McCracken. Other McCrackens of that name we found were Baby, Robert, May, James, William, Donna, Bridget, Edward, Frank, Charles, and Elsie. Good luck in your search!

Sarah Limpus
Greenwood Cemetery records show no marker, but a broken base is next to the marker of infant Johnny Limpus.

Memorial 73077916
Hi Audrey,

Memorial 73077916 for Phillip Henry Newberry is incorrect on the death date. The headstone says he passed away in Apr. and you have him passing in March. Could you please correct that? He is the father of my 2C Sarah Jane 'Sallie' Newberry.

Thanks so much.

Photo Request
You requested photos for Charles, Okie and John Austin in Bayard Cemetery in Nebraska. My sister and I went there for our own research. In addition to your names we also found Bertha, Chadwick, Ella, Estole, Fred, Harold, Paul, Raymond, Rebecca, Wheeler, William G, William J, William F, and Nettie (Austin) McCracken. Wheeler and William G were not previously on Findagrave. I tried including photos that showed the nearby family graves if possible. I hope this helps in your own family search.

RE: Minnie Riding Memorial# 61693990
I received email from find-a-grave and the changes were incorrect. Is there a phone number I can call to make these corrections by phone?

RE: Minnie Riding Memorial# 61693990
Her name was Lucy Mae Moseley Ridings. My mom was name after her and she is Lucy Mae Denis Wright, and is buried beside her. Lucy Mae Ridings is name etched on her tombstone, which is double stone with William Wilson Ridings.

RE: Eula Mae Ridings Denis
I have worked on my Grandmother, Eula Mae Denis, and my great-grandparents, William Wilson & Lucy Mae Ridings this afternoon. I still can't figure out how to change the name Minnie to Lucy on my grandmothers page. Also, the name of the cemetery is wrong for Lucy Mae Ridings. My three relatives are all buried in family plot in Kensett Cemetery.
