Bio and Links
Bio Photo San Diego has some of the best Find a Grave contributors who are doing an amazing job of documenting our local cemeteries. If you need a grave photo there is no shortage photo volunteers. If you are looking for an obituary, cemetery information or advice we have volunteers happy to help you.
If you are new to Find a Grave and want to start contributing in the San Diego area please read the FAQs or reach out to someone with your questions.

Please always do a search before creating a new memorial

Links, Corrections and additional information
Please use the edit tab and I will be happy to make corrections, add links and additional information. Do not leave information you want added on this page.

Note: Abstracted lists (such as census, death index, etc.) should be formulated into complete sentences prior to submitting for addition to the bio.
Copy-and-paste census, military and other data is not a "bio". Please don't send these type of bios because they will not be added.

This is Find-a-Grave, we find graves, so please, if the memorial doesn't have a grave photo, request one prior to asking for a transfer.
I'm pretty liberal when it comes to transfers, however too many times I have transferred and nothing is added or changed. So if you want a transfer, please:
1. Post any family photos (if you have them)
2. Provide me with family links and biographical information you wish to add to the memorial.
3. Tell me your exact relationship

I will not make a transfer if you create excessive memorials with unknown burial locations.

Please be a Find a Grave contributor, not just a collector of someone else's work

✔ PLEASE NOTE!!! Do not move your Burial Unknown into the correct cemetery based on the information you found from my memorial & then demand that I delete my duplicate.

Jon C. Hostetter 1933 - 2013
When I saw El Camino Memorial Park had put the incorrect date of birth, 2013, on their web site, I called them and talked to the cemetery records dept. He said the date of birth was 1933. I ask if he would correct it? He said it has to be changed by a family member. I ask, even if it is you mistake? He answered "It has to be changed by a family member." He said if I would come out there, he would show me where Jon's grave is. I told him I don't live there. I asked for a copy of Jon's obituary. He said that was too long ago, they would not have it.(Sept. 2013) I guess he never heard of archive obituaries. He wouldn't give me any of the families information either. So there you go. I was a high school classmate of Jon's and I was hoping to get his obituary.

RE: Jon C. Hostetter

The funeral home and Cemetery: El Camino Memorial
Park has Jon's birth date as 2013, the same year
that he was born. Jon was my high school class-
mate born in 1933, same as me. El Camino would
not change this date for me, even tho they said he was
born in 1933. They said a family member would
have to change it. Can you change this date on
your site?

Pixley/Oswin family
Hello. Thank you for creating a memorial for my family members. Morrison Frank Pixley 113825164 was my great-grandfather, and Nella Vida Pixley 113825169 was my great-grandmother.

Aristine (Pixley) Oswin 113825185 was their daughter, and Henry H. Oswin 155433692 was her husband. (I created the memorial for Henry H. Oswin today.)

I respectfully ask that you update their family relationships on your memorials, or that you transfer them to me. Let me know if you need any authentication from me.

Best regards,
Lois Pixley Rosewood

RE: Philip Fulghum
Thank you. I would like to take care of his memorial page. I have a Rootsweb page dedicated to the Torpedo Squadron Eight members who were killed at Midway ( and research on their families, but I've expanded it to try and include all 176 US military air crew personnel who died during the battle. Although PO Fulghum didn't die at Midway he certainly was one of its heroes.

Warm regards,
Gerry (G47)
