Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Northern CA and have been interested in Genealogy research for several years now. What an amazing adventure it's been. I was told about Find A Grave to search for more clues to my ancestors. It was one of the best places I've come across. So I decided to become a volunteer and help others if I could.

My "Home" cemetery I work on is Redding Memorial. I've been on a quest to document this Redding Cemetery since the first month I joined FAG.

So now that I'm hooked, every trip or vacation we go on, I'm looking for a cemetery, what photos can I find and who else is looking for their family..


Family I'm looking for; Clary, Jones & Sherwood Family in Joplin, MO.
Oates, Owens & Guy; LA, OK, AK AL and Tenn.
Happy Hunting..

RE: Grandparents of mine
I'll be driving near there at the end of Aug. I'd like to visit a church there. I hear they have cannon ball damage to it from the Civil War. Would you like me to do a search for you while I'm there?

Thank you for photographing the headstones of my mother Marian and her mother Emma. I am wondering if you could take a picture of my grandfather's also? His name is Antone Zappettini, but the tombstone simply says "Tony". He is in the same group. The official location is section RA, block 5, lot 53, Grave 1.. His birth was May 25, 1881 and he died Nov. 24, 1916.

Your great grandparents
Eventually, I will be going to Holmes County to find some of my family's graves. If you can give me the names of your great grandparents, I'll keep an eye out for them while I'm looking for mine.

RE: Mary Unknown Born 1874 died 1906. Birth: Jul. 28, 1874
Death: Jan. 31, 1906. I am on a search to find my GGGrandmother born Mary Ann Ettinger 1874 Kansas and Died somewhere in the early 1900's. Last place she was known to be was Lewiston Idaho with her brother George W. Ettinger and his family. My GGrandmother was Ceola Margaret Ettinger Keith born to Mary Ann Ettinger and Hollis Watson Keith...they were not married. I know I am grasping at straws but wondering if there is any kind of information to go with this burial? Perhaps where she was born etc...the timeline fits exactly. Perhaps there is a male tombstone close to her with the last name. Thanks for any help or information you can provide. Please feel to email if you have more questions!

We respectfully request permission to use the cemetery entrance photo in our personal tree. Bruce has cousin interred there and the photo will make a great addition to our tree.

Thanks for your consideration.

RE: Jerry Dale Grimsley
Thank you for contacting me about my brother Jerry Dale Grimsley. I did not receive the attachment of his headstone that you had sent to me. Do you still have it to re-send, please?
