|Bio and Links|
I have lived in the mid-west all my life and have been an x-ray technologist for over 35 years. I found the Find A Grave website back in 2000 while helping my daughter research a school project. At the time, the more I explored Find A Grave the more disappointed I became that some of the famous individuals that were posted did not have a personal photograph in addition to their gravesite displayed. In the process of trying to locate photos for Find A Grave I have learned a lot about many of the individuals that it has been my pleasure to honor. History has always been a passion for me and Find A Grave has helped satisfy my curiosity tremendously.|

|Linda Davis||Ray Charles|
Read you excellent bio on Ray Charles memorial.
One fact missing was that he received his basic education at the Florida School for the Deaf and Bland in St Augustine. My Daddy, after he retired from the army, worked at the school in the 1960's. It was in the time period that "Hit the Road, Jack" was in the top 10 on the radio. For his accomplishments, Charles was a hero to many blind students... and still so today.
Just sharing my thoughts.
|Daniel||Mae Murray Photo|
Hey Ron, just wanted to let you know that the photo you posted on Mae Murray's memorial is actually a photo of Marion Davies spoofing Mae in the silent movie The Patsy. Miss Davies was a master of spoofing her fellow silent movie actresses. There are many great photos of Miss Murray on the internet, but photos posted on blogs are often misidentified, so you have to cross reference to make sure. Take-care - Daniel

|May A.||Gilbert Roland|
Noticed you added Actor Gilbert Roland, His Career last over 6 decades,,,, But your bio for him is just a couple of lines,,, Luis Antonio Damaso de Alonso, later known as Gilbert Roland, was born in 1905 in Mexico. Following his parents to the USA, he did not become the bullfighter he had dreamed of being but became an actor instead. His Mexican roots, his half macho half romantic ways, his handsome virile figure helped him land roles in movies from the early twenties to 1982. A long and varied career in which Roland was in turns an extra, a matinée idol (Armand Duval in Camille (1926)), a Latin Lover, a star of English-speaking films made in Hollywood in the early 1930s, a Mexican bandit in B-Movies, The Cisco Kid in a series of six popular Westerns, a brilliant character in major A movies (John Huston's We Were Strangers (1949), Vincente Minnelli's The Bad and the Beautiful (1952); Anthony Mann's Thunder Bay (1953), John Ford's Cheyenne Autumn (1964)), a sinister character in Spaghetti Westerns... When he retired in 1982, twelve years before he died, he could be satisfied. His career had spanned six decades, the coming of sound had not ended it, he had played in all kinds of movies, he had held the most beautiful women in his arms, and maybe the most important thing, he had been given the opportunity to show his acting talents. Not every actor can boast such a life achievement.

|Judith Lee Howard Shea||Benjamin Robbins Curtis|
Thank you for posting the gorgeous picture of Hon Benjamin Robbins Curtis on F.a.G.!! He is an ancestor a little off to the side as far as genes are concerned (his 3rd wife and I share more of them) But I love having pictures of all my relatives! I wish I had more!!
