Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love the history, the architecture, the beauty, and mostly the serenity of a cemetery, especially Hollywood Forever where I've been visiting for 30 years. I enjoy fulfilling photo requests at this cemetery the most.

Memorials are gladly transferred to anyone who'd like them - save for my own family members.

Always feel free to post a Public Message for me.

I've been seeing more and more requests for photos without any grave location information. Cemetery offices are much more likely to cheerfully provide family members with grave locations than photo volunteers, especially those of us they see often. We don't want to wear out our welcome, so to speak, and appreciate your calling or emailing the cemetery in advance to get the grave location. Hollywood Forever's phone number is 323-469-1181 and their email address is Please help us help you!

RE: Mayme Reese 138378782
Hi Jim. I did call the cemetery office, and they told me she is not there. She died in Iowa, and I suppose was buried there, despite their original intention to be buried together. Thanks.

RE: Stewart/Harding
I am fairly certain that Mary/Nana Harding was born in 1848. I have a 1848 baptism record for her and she shows up in a 1855 New York State Census.

I can't explain why her headstone has her birth year as 1859, but I don't think that it is correct.

RE: The Groves at Hollywood Forever
The reason I requested a photo from Hollywood Forever, is that there is the same person (Alice J. Groves) with the same dates with a headstone photo for Forest Lawn Glendale Cemetery. I did not know if that was a mistake, or perhaps the Groves was first buried in one location and moved to another. Or ????

RE: W.F. Smith
I don't think that Lulu E. Smith is related.

Using Kearney city directories I've found six children of W.F. & Linnie Smith. The only female that I haven't found a burial place for is Mabel Annette Smith and she died 20 Dec. 1969 in Garden Grove, CA.

Thank You for the photos, Jim! What a neat cemetery you have chosen to photograph!

Jim, Thanks for the suggestion to ask photographer to reshoot a photo that can't be read. It wasn't a recent photo so I didn't think to do that. It's a great idea and they are willing to do it.

Thanks for taking the time.

Thank you so much for taking the grave stone photos. I think that Nana Harding really is Mary Harding. I can't explain why her birth year is so far off,but her death year is correct and Nana is a nickname that her grandchildren called her.
