Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is David Alan Jones, I was born on February 25, 1956 at Mills Memorial Hospital in San Mateo, CA. I am a student of history, including that of my own family and direct decendants; "Without he or she, there would be no me". Cemeteries are excellent resources for genealogy research and also places of quiet reflection for the living.
I have written a book, "US Silent Service Dolphins & Combat Insignia, 1924-1945". I enjoy research into the military history of the United States. I just finished writing a book titled "Five War Patrols" about Floyd Caverly aboard the USS Tang.
My son and I are members of the "Son's of the American Revolution" and my daughter is a member of the "Daughter's of the American Revolution". I am also a member of The War of 1812 Society. I serve as a captain on the Klamath River Fire Department. Thanks for looking at my bio.

Bertha Havens
Thank you so much for finding Bertha. I had no idea where she was other then she died in California. Seems her child also died with her.

You did good! Linda Rhoadarmer

I see you removed the photo request, and added the headstone photo yourself. I also noticed that the name is not spelled "Hodgson" on his headstone. Maybe you should change his memorial to "Hodson". Or, if the spelling on the stone is actually incorrect, you might want to make a notation about that in the 'bio' section.

He is buried in Sec D-58
There is no marker now. There was one in the 1950s when historical society read inscriptions. Only Juliann and Mary Shoemaker have markers in this plot today.

Karl Hodgson photo request
Hello! Green Hills Memorial Park cemetery records are not showing this name. I tried various other spellings and still came up with nothing. I even checked under his middle name, in case the names got reversed. Would you please call the cemetery to confirm that he is buried there? I've claimed the request but have nothing to go on.

Eleanor (Hughes) Jones
Thanks for the great work regarding my Gr Gr Aunt Eleanor Hughes.

I do have something that I am looking for. Her father, John H. Hughes, wrote a poem regarding his first wife, her mother. In Welsh, translated by someone, and last known to have been kept in the home of his granddaughter, Mrs. Richard F. Jones of Mankato.

She died in 1944! Are you in contact with descendants?

RE: George Deacon
Hi Dave, I see you left flowers for Eber's father George Deacon. Would you like to manage his and Susan's memorials? I added what bio I could to George's page. See what you think --Kim

RE: Ida Margaret Vandervort
Hi Dave, yes we are related! I was fortunate to work with Jim Murry when he was still living and use his Vandervort Genealogies Manual from 2005 that he published. He was a great person and left a valuable tool for researchers. There are a few errors and of course with time newer info but his info is such a wonderful base to work from. Hope you have or can find a copy of it he printed usually one a year, this copy might be one of the last years and is huge over 500 pages. Over 20 years ago I found a Vandervort living about 2 blocks from me and contacted him, to my delight he gave me a manuscript of his family that was like a journey of all his Vandervorts that were from New York !! His side split and went to Wisconsin and that area while mine went to Ohio. I sent Jim a copy of it and is included in his book now. I think with all the Peter, Pauls and Nicholas is where confusion happens. That side of the Vandervorts did have a Rev War person in it, mine that came to Ohio did not. Am rambling sorry. Nice to meet you!

You made a duplication of my memorial for Sarah. She is with our family and we have family pictures. My memorial is #67133964 and it was put on Find A Grave 3-29-2011. Please remove yours. Yours was put on April 24, 2014. I did send you a notification through the edit button but have had no response. Thanks, Linda Rhoadarmer
