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.

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.

RE: Velma Orvella Brown Owsley
You are welcome!

Culver is my married name. I hear the question quite often - - "Are you related to so and so?" This line of Culver's are from Casper, WY. My maiden name is Kysar.

RE: Hannah Johnson
Thank you for the link. Unfortunately, the only source on the age is to a genealogical website that has no reliable sources. Internet sites are NOT reliable sources. Only primary sources (documents) and proven secondary sources, such as _Complete Peerage_, are acceptable. Anything found on the internet MUST be proven. People post anything, other people source those people, and now we have the horrendous glut of unproven garbage.

Even _Complete Peerage_ has errors that new document discoveries and tracing of property ownership have brought to light. Never rely on any website as a source; it is not.

RE: Hannah Johnson
You are very gracious. I would dearly love to connect Mary (Johnson) Peaslee to John and Hannah (Throckmorton) Johnson, but cannot without evidence. Alas.

Perhaps John Johnson of Kent married a Hannah who was conflated with Hannah Throckmorton by someone wishing a connection to the Throckmortons. Perhaps John Johnson of Kent did marry a Hannah Throckmorton, but not this one. There were many, many Throckmorton families spread throughout the English counties.

Is there is a gravesite in the church you mentioned for Hannah Throckmorton Johnson, or is it just for Hannah Johnson, wife of John Johnson of Kent?

Assuming the cemetery you had listed was for Hannah, wife of John Johnson of Kent, I removed the cemetery from Hannah Throckmorton Johnson's memorial. You may want to enter a new memorial for Hannah ? Johnson.

RE: Thomas Easley Wilson
It has taken quite some time, but I have finally been transferred the memorials for my grandparents and some collateral family members. I am still awaiting a transfer from Ken Townsend for my grandmother Ada Mae Muse Wilson Gordon. Hopefully, he will complete that soon, I may need to follow-up with

I think we are going to keep these with just photographs of the headstones to try and keep as much integrity as is possible with Find A Grave, so please remove those photographs from these memorials.

Thank you,

Sarah McKean
Audrey, I'm sorry it's been so long since you left you message concerning Sarah McKean. I'm getting back to my roots once again. I'm glad you found Sarah's memorial. The cemetery where she is, is often overgrown and no longer in use along the side of a road where the sign is often obscured by foliage. About 5 years or so ago a group (may have been scouts) cleared it off. I've been there several times to photograph the stones, but must go in early spring or late fall. I especially like to record these type of cemeteries so those who are looking can find what may have become lost forever. It's actually a quiet and beautiful little place at the top of a knoll and although very close to the road, secluded. If I can be of any more help, please let me know. Happy hunting!

Audrey, I just found your name on a memorial I am interested in, and I went to your profile to see what I could find. I found a some-what nasty note from someone asking you to remove personal pictures. I was curious what kind of pictures she was requesting to be removed, so I pulled up the first memorial only. It is a drawing of someone. I am sorry she has asked you to remove it and the others, because it is wonderful when we can see likenesses of our ancestors when pictures were rare or non-existent. You are 91 at least you were when you posted your profile and I am in awe that at age 80 you were able to learn the computer and are on your way. Good for you. If I were you, I would not delete the pictures you have posted. They are precious and you are doing a wonderful service for those that follow.
