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.

I am now a self appointed family historian who has been doing research on my own extended family, and that of my friends,

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.

Thank you Ms. Audrey. I have found no information other than the census records. If I ever find more, I will let you know. Thanks for the reply.

Dupree Family
Ms. Audrey, You submitted photos of Angie Dupree Hodge on her memorial page Find A Grave Memorial# 88345387. She had brothers and sisters from info I found in the 1880 census and I can't find any information on these siblings. Do you have any information on her Dupree Family? Thanks Pat Berel #47164320

RE: Find A Grave Photo Request Problem - Karen Elledge
Don't know if you have the link to the online Burial Records for the Mountain View Cemetery, but I have put Mack Elledge's name into the search again and here is the address:

You can take it from there and do a new search if you wish. Perhaps you can discover something helpful by doing this. There ARE errors in the cemetery records, without a doubt. If we just had a plot number to go on, but with nothing there is no way to know where to begin a walking search in this cemetery of over 36,000 burials. I do hope you find your loved one.

Ms Audrey, I was so pleased to read your bio! I would love any information you would be willing to help me with. And if I have any information you are interested in, I will certainly reciprocate. My grandmother was Crystal Sandlin, her mother was Minnie A Clifton, her mother was Harriet Rhyne, her mother was Sarah Hoffman, and her father was Daniel Hoffman. Many thanks! Ronni Boyd

Robert Culver photo request
Your request for Robert's stone has been fulfilled today. Directly beside Robert rests a woman by the name of Josephine Culver Lee (Find a Grave memorial #120084703), per the inscription on the stone. Here on Find a Grave, her memorial is set up naming her "Nellie Josephine Lee. I photographed her stone and after some detective work, found her memorial and have posted that there. I wondered if she was Robert's (re)married wife or perhaps his sister. At any rate, I am sure she is a relative given her close proximity at the cemetery to Robert! Have a great day!

RE: Thompson, William Alexander 41745280
Thank you for the offer! I emailed the biography to the creator of the memorial, suggesting it as an addition. Is that the correct way to do that?

Hester Richards Hawkins
Hester Richards Hawkins, born 1613, can not be the daughter of Edward Richards and Jane Martin. Jane Martin died prior to June 1610, as is indicated by the probate proceedings relating to her mother, Margaret Wadham Martin, in June 1610. Jane Martin preceded her mother in death.
