Bio and Links
Bio Photo PLEASE - send corrections through the edit tab and suggest a correction. You can now send LINKS this way.
Due to my work schedule, I process edits on the weekend.

FindAGrave has grown over the past 15 years. In the beginning there was no linking or transfers. Photo size was very small and the PRIMARY purpose of the site was finding the final disposition of the person. So when you are looking at old memorials, please keep these things in mind.

Religious brothers and sisters have the title Br or Sr, found in the title drop down box. Brother and Sister should not be in the first name. Initials designating the religious order should not be part of the last name. SJU, OSC, RSM in the name makes searching impossible, and leads to duplication.

Joanne Fresta
Murray Fresta
I would like to confirm if the following listing of Fresta, SMN Murray
b. 1914 d. 1975
Shoreland Memorial Garden...
Monmouth County
New Jersey, USA

is in fact:
Murray C. Fresta Sr.
S1 United States Coast Guard
World War II

If so, that is my Uncle and his birth year is actually 1924 not 1914.

I just wanted to have the correction made if possible. I also have a picture of the grave marker. I am new to this site and I am not sure how to post the picture yet ...and didn't want to do so until this is confirmed as his grave site. Thank you so much for your help.

Williams Cemetary memorials
Have submitted a couple of edits on Williams memorials; Catherine M (maiden name Hartsock), Dorrie and Markie. My information comes primarily from a commemorative bio by J. H. Beers dated 1898 on Abednego and Catherine's oldest daughter Susie who married a medical doctor in Julian by the name of William U. Irwin. The bio information for Catherine listing birthdate as 4 Jan 1850 conflicts with the 1850 census records dated 9 October 1850 and listing her as five months old as is Abednego's sister Rachel.

Catherine's parents are Hays and Susan Williams Hartsock also buried in Williams Cemetary.

I have come to the conclusion that Dorrie is listed as Theodore L; 3 Feb 1879 to 30 Jul 1892, and Markie is Chester M; 25 Jun 1883 to 29 Aug 1892, in the bio.

Thank you for all of your great work for find a grave and the information you provide to help those of us searching for our ancestors. You are great.
