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.
Floyd Caverly Hi Dave - Just wanted to let you know that a headstone has been placed for him. I took photos this morning but I don't like them. I'm sure afternoon sun will result in better photos. Hope you don't mind waiting a couple more days, updated his wives' memorials with new photos and removed the picture of the unmarked stone. Also wondering if you had anything to do with getting his headstone placed... Photos will be done next Tuesday.
RE: Hamburg/Horse Creek Maybe Horse Creek has just disappeared over time as people moved on. I've sure seen it quite a bit here lately as I've been working on these folks. I'd like to get down there and take a look around. I've regretted my years as a 911 dispatcher ever since I got to spray a fire hose on a ride-along. Who doesn't love a fireman? Thanks again for your help.
